Why do you guys always ask me this? Do you know how hard it is for me to pick?? 😦 I also end up picking a different one each time I get asked.
Favourite Dresses, Angela Tries Beauty Box. I picked these two this time around as they’re both beauty or fashion related posts which I normally don’t do, but I’m quite proud of.
As always, feel no pressure to accept the nomination, just know I was thinking of you 😀
Hey! So I’m joining in on the “A Girl Can Dream” series, collaborated by Jenny from Sit Back and Just Live and Jayee from Jacqueliine Joy!
The theme for this month is Dream Closet. Be sure to check out Jenny’s post about her own dream closet too!
I would love a walk in closet. I don’t think I have enough clothes and accessories to warrant one, but I just love the idea of one.
This is organised to an insane extent. But you would always be able to find what you’re looking for. I especially like the cubbies for shoes and bags, and the drawers for jewellery.
Having a section with a vanity area would be a bonus. Cause then everything is in the same place when you need to get ready.
Also, a full length mirror would be needed. I currently have one but it keeps falling down off the wall so it’s just resting on the floor which means I don’t get the best view so I kinda have to squat. I will say though, in this picture, I would have no idea how to get to that higher section without ladders.
I would be more fond of lots of natural light. It just makes everything (including you!) look so much better.
So I know I already talked about the vanity table, but look at that mirror! I want that hexagon mirror.
I think I would stick with a neutral palette like with all the previous pictures, but this one just kinda appeals to me more actually. It’s more ‘whimsical’.
So what would be in your dream closet? Do we share parts of the same wishlist?
Another weekend, another batch of baking.
While going through Anni’s blog for my Have You Met series, I came across all her delicious looking cupcakes. So I decided to try her Lemonade Cupcake recipe. Be sure to check out her post as she is the one who originally shared it 😀
Also, I can’t wrap my head around mls and grams, as I go by cups, so I’ve done some conversions.
As always, first make sure you have what you need.
For the cupcakes:
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract/essence
- 1/4 cup (almost) vegetable oil
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup (almost) Fanta (or other orangey sodas out there)
For the topping:
- 1 cup (almost) cream
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup (not quite 3/4 but more than 1/2) sour cream
- 1 package vanilla pudding powder
