cupcakes: an indulgence that should not be avoided and cannot be replaced.

Written by , Posted in cupcakes

CAPES [something empowering] One shouldn’t worry about having dessert.  It’s an indulgence that cannot be replaced.  

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction]  I look forward to Cupcake Royale’s new cupcake of the month…but no month more than when the pumpkin maple is featured.  In 2010, it was featured in October.  In 2011, it was November.  As September is in its final days, I am less than a week away from finding out which month will be the month that I gain my winter weight.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy]  Speaking of cupcakes…I channel this little girl’s spunk and spirit.  I want a cupcake every day.  Seriously…every single day.

Don’t pay full price for fashion.

CAPES [something empowering] I recently heard the following advice: “the key to unlocking where you’re currently stuck is thankfulness.”  I’m thankful for that reminder.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] Evelyn Rose is a new consignment shop in my neighborhood, and I love not paying full price for fashion.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy]  Yesterday I cleaned out my garage, and simultaneously visited memory lane from the past 31 years of my life.  Various hairstyles haunted me as I cleaned out box after box.  Pictures showing hair that was permed, dyed with sun-in, streaked with plantium blond, and cut to a bob above my ears made me extremely grateful for my hair today.
