Cupcakes and Denim

Today I headed upstate to bake away with a friend in anticipation of New Years Eve.  We made the most delicious champagne cupcakes with champagne butter cream and edible pearls to mimic bubbles.

On a more fashionable note, HUGE sale at Zara!!!  I made out like a bandit!

We Be Illustrating

The gals of Ottawa based blog We Be Wearing make mommy-hood look damn cool.  Below, I’ve illustrated three of their looks.  I love their edgy, fashion forward, yet functional style.  Three moms, seven kids, endless style.

Datenight Amalfitana

The Amalfi Coast is not only one of the most beautiful places on earth, it is also home to my husband’s grandmother.  The last time we visited, we went to a gorgeous restaurant in Positano that over looked the ocean.  I had the most delicious carpaccio and calamari.  Next time we go, I’m hoping to visit this spot again, in this fabulous outfit.

Handmade Holiday Cheer

I’ve definitely reconnected with my crafty side this year (hallelujah!).  It’s been awhile.  During my week off, I made these cards for our friends and family.  It’s a pretty accurate depiction of what happens around these parts.  Poor hubby.
