Vegan Cupcakes. Well.. almost.

I reeallly wanted some cupcakes last night so I found this awesome vegan recipe and decided to give it a go. I did a little altering so they weren't exactly vegan but they tasted great! Here is the original recipe.
For my cupcakes I used butter instead of margarine (because it's what I had), whole wheat flour, store bought cream cheese frosting that was left over from Valentines day ~ note the pink, and I didn't add nutmeg or walnuts because I don't have any. They ended up tasting just like carrot cake. Amazing! I will definitely be making them again.

If you're interested..

I've started a photoblog of what I'm wearing each day. The idea is that it'll help me to remember that I do have lots of super cute stuff in my wardrobe, even if it doesn't seem so sometimes. This way I can take a look back and pick an outfit from the photos to throw on and that I already know looks good. It definitely beats staring blankly into my closet for 1/2 an hour.. check it out here.

Lykke Li

Thinking about summer styles reminded me of this amazing video by Lykke Li. I absolutely adore her! Her style is personalized while staying current. Well, and this video makes me want to get dolled up and dance around my living room. <3

Street Style Sunday

With temperatures already reaching 100 degrees we can safely say it's officially summer in Arizona! Naturally, everyone is poolside and this weekend and I spotted this super stylish group of ladies immediately. There's nothing I love more than a well coordinated group who all look amazing, and all while lounging around the pool. Well done ladies! The theme among this group was geometric and tribal inspired prints, chunky jewelry, and strapy jeweled and braided sandals.

Ty and Mariah.
