Happy Friday everyone! I’d like to pay homage to one of my favorite designers, Mr. Alexander McQueen. That man was surely a genius.
Now get out there and enjoy your weekend! Please 🙂
Confession: I’ve lived in California for most of my life and have NEVER been to Disneyland. That is until my wonderful boyfriend Nick surprised me with a spontaneous trip there! We had so much fun and it really saddened me when we had to leave. It really is a magical place. We’re definitely going back again!
Here are some photos of our impromptu excursion!

A futuristic-looking ride
I had to break out my new favorite jeans! Find them here.

It’s a Small World
This past weekend was my sister Linda’s baby shower for my new niece! She had an Ocean/Underwater theme and at the last minute I had to make cupcakes because other plans did not fall through.
When it comes to baking, I’m no Iron Chef. I’m a bit more Sandra Lee a la “semi-homemade cooking!” (no shame in that at all :)) I used a vanilla flavored boxed cake mix and store bought vanilla frosting. For the decorative elements, I dyed the frosting blue with food coloring, made pink candied seashells with a candy mold and pearlized sprinkles for the final touch!
With the exception of turning everyone’s mouth blue, I think they turned out pretty well!
I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful 4th of July holiday. I spent mine with my boyfriend Nick, family and friends. For my outfit, I thought it was appropriate and very American to be in none other than a plain white t-shirt and denim shorts.
