I probably won't get a chance to write on here as much right now being that the Burlesque Festival is coming up and I have so much last minute stuff to do! I am super excited and nervous especially about the weather...we're almost in April and we are still seeing a threat of snow??!!! I want some Spring weather already! 

For the time being, I will leave you with photos of some cupcakes I recently made for a friend who just had a little baby boy. They are very blue!

Style Rookie

Its always nice to hear how customers of mine find out about Flamingo Cupcake. I mean, I don't have the money to do advertising so word of mouth is really all I've got. A recent customer of mine said, 'Oh btw, I found out about you from Tavi on Style Rookie.' Honestly, I had no idea what she was talking about so of course I googled it and was pleasantly surprised. It turns out Tavi is one of my customers, too. She's a cute little thing who blogs about fashion, music, and one of my personal favs, Courtney Love. Here is a photo of her wearing one of my necklaces!

You need to check out her blog!

Appetite for Reduction

Lately I have been feeling a need for change. I would like to lose some extra pounds that I have tacked on over the years (maybe like 10-15) and just live a more healthful lifestyle in general. Its really not easy. Especially when you're like me who looooves cupcakes and sweets and all that is bad for you.

I am a huge fan of Bethenny Frankel...ya know, one of the Real Housewives from New York. I recently finished her book 'Naturally Thin' and couldn't get enough of her advice for looking at your eating habits in a whole different light. I loved it so much that I read her other book, 'Skinny Dish', which has the recipes in it. 

I'm super psyched because I just bought Isa Moskowitz's newest book, 'Appetite for Reduction'. Although I am not vegan, I am a big fan of her and her many cookbooks. This one intrigued me because all the recipes are between 200 and 400 calories. At first glance I found many recipes that looked delicious and things that I would actually make. Can't wait to get cooking!

Craft Show!

Pile of Craft is one of my favorite local craft shows that takes place right here in Baltimore. I noticed that applications to sell at the show just went up yesterday so I immediately applied! I have always wanted to sell amongst all the other talented, local crafters. Fingers crossed!!
