Just ask.

Written by , Posted in cupcakes

CAPES [something empowering] If you never ask for what you want, than you’ll never know if the answer will be yes or no. 

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction]  I know there’s only one more day left in July…but get yourself on over to Cupcake Royale ASAP before this cupcake goes away until July of 2013!  It rivals my favorite (the Pumpkin Maple), and totally deserves a drumroll….Blueberry Brown Betty.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy]  Speaking of blueberries…while my nephew Cooper and I were picking blueberries the other day, he warned me not to step in what looked like a big pile of dirt.  I did anyway (whoops), and it was an ant hill.  The rest of the day I swore I had ants in my pants.  Literally.

RE: self-esteem

Written by , Posted in iPhone

CAPES [something empowering] RE: self-esteemthe bad stuff is easier to believe, but that doesn’t mean the good stuff isn’t true. 

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction]  A Canadian company has invented the coolest skins for your iPhone/iPad.  They are durable, easy to apply, plus they include wallpaper that coordinates with the design.  Love.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy]  You know you’ve reached a certain level of maturity when you can embrace your real-life size (i.e. I’m a medium, not a small…I haven’t been a small since my freshman year in HS).

A good summer read & an impossible ask.

Written by , Posted in books, glassybaby

CAPES [something empowering] In all types of relationships, it’s important to be aware of your own expectations.  In practicing this, I’ve realized how irrational I can be, especially when I’m expecting the other person to read my mind.  Wittle down your expecations to the rational ones, and when the timing is right, find a way to express them in a non-passive aggressive way (because contrary to what you may think, being passive agreeisve is highly ineffective and incredibly unattractive). 

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction]  My drinker count is up to 14.  I think I need to have a party.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy]  I’m in desperate need of a good summer read.  I’m looking for a book somewhere in the ballpark of The History of Love (Nicole Krauss) meets Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Jonathan Safer Foer), with an undertone of To Kill A Mockingbird (Harper Lee).  I know…an impossible ask, but I would love your suggestions.
