Easter Cupcakes

Happy Easter!!

I hope everyone is having a great Easter weekend! Nothing like a little family gathering with food and festivities to make for a great holiday. For my food contribution this time around, I wanted toΒ  bring a sweet treat for everyone. It was my first time ever making cupcakes from scratch, and I have to say it was a little bit of trial and error at first, but I finally found the best recipe. If you love a moist vanilla cupcakeΒ  and buttercream icing, then this is for you. I thought I’d share this recipe I found and a cute topping idea keeping with the Easter theme. Nothing like a festive cupcake to make Easter a little sweeter πŸ™‚

Wedges, Booties, Heels oh my!

One-haute mess

Β Your can never have to many pairs of shoes! Am I right? πŸ˜‰ Shoe shopping is one of those sacred things we as women cherish, and when you find a good deal on a pair, it’s like hitting the mother load.:) So without further ado, here are a few deals on some shoe dupes (duplicates) that you are going to want to check out.

I put together some new styles that are very similar to each other, with both high and low price points. I actually just ordered myself the black booties at the top for the lesser price. They fit like a glove.:) Now I am eyeing those black high heels as well as the lace up ballet flats! Β I just need to figure out how and when I’d actually wear them. πŸ™‚
