Donut you wish every week was Spring Break?

I must say, I could get used to this whole no school thing. It is so nice to have the week off!
I've been wanting to make these donut cookies for quite awhile, and I'm so glad I finally had time to make them! I love the way they turned out (and they are super delicious with coffee). I used chocolate frosting for half of them, which gave them even more of a realistic donut taste!
Cookie ordering info can be found on the 'Sweets Selection' tab or you can go here.
Have a great day!


PS- These are still my favorite mugs ever.

Spring Casual

Jean Jacket, White top, White denim (new favorites!) similar here, Shoes: Converse, Bag: Clare V, Lips: Laura Mercier 'Crushed Berry' + MAC, Necklace, Bracelets: Baublebar here and here, Sunglasses: Quay

This is a perfect spring casual outfit. All white with a little denim + leopard and my new favorite bracelets. This pair of white denim is my new favorite (and the price can't be beat). They are perfectly  distressed and look identical to a designer pair. I am so glad today starts our spring break. So excited to have a whole week off to get other stuff done (like check things off the wedding checklist) and relax a bit.
Hope you all had a great Easter yesterday! We had a great day with family (and way too much candy).
Thanks for stopping by!

Easter Outfit

Skirt: Express, Blouse similar here, Shoes similar here, Clutch: Gigi New York, Hat, Necklace: Baublebar, Earrings: Olivia & Grace via Rocksbox c/o, Lips: Laura Mercier 'Crushed Berry'

Gigi New York is having free personalization and free shipping this weekend! I love my Gigi New York Uber Clutches! They fit so much and they are excellent quality. The personalization always looks amazing and adds a nice touch to any bag. I got my new initials on this one (a bit early, but I couldn't wait to use it).
This skirt is perfect for spring (and Easter) and it is on SALE. I love a good midi skirt and this one is perfect. When I was little, I always loved my Easter bonnets, so of course I wanted to add a hat to my Easter look this year. Even from a young age I loved dressing up (some things never change).
Hope you all have a great Easter!

Hoppy (Almost) Easter!

I made these fun bunny cookies for an Easter order and I love the way they turned out. I've been wanting to make the bunny butts for so long! I must say, they are my favorite!
If you are a cookie decorator yourself, I wanted to share this tip that changed my life. When making royal icing I always left the icing it's natural white color until recently. If you use white food dye it makes the frosting look 100x better and a much truer/brighter white. It makes such a difference! It also helps colors from bleeding or running over time.

Also, I've been wanting to make these bunny booties for so long! I think they turned out so cute!

Hope you all have a great Easter!

New Season, Same Color

Sweater: She In also love it in this color and this, White denim: Nordstrom also love these these and these, Heels: Valentino, Bag, Sunglasses, Earrings: Baublebar, Lips: Sugar fresh (color 'Petal') and MAC 'Pink Plaid'

I have been loving the extra hours of light in the evening and the warmer temps. White and blush are continuing to be my go-to colors. I love this blush cold-shoulder sweater. It is perfect for transitioning into spring. I wish the weather was consistently warmer, but this kind of sweater is perfect for warm days and cold nights. I can't stop wearing my white denim. It is seriously my favorite thing right now. I gotten quite a few amazing pairs of white denim for under $70! They are perfect for spring and summer and I know I'll get a ton of wear out of them.
It's going to be a crazy busy week for me with conferences two nights and the end of Reading Month. I'm wishing I could fast forward to Friday. I'm so looking forward to a week off!
Have a wonderful week!
