Oh the weather outside is frightful...but I'm already looking forward to a new season. Damn season-pushing! The stores are already starting to get their new spring arrivals in and I can't help but feel elated at the sight of soft colors and airy fabrics. Sadly, my wardrobe still consists of heavy coats, scarves, and boots.

I love the print of this dress! LOVE IT! I want it
These shoes are cute and fun. The multi-colored ruffle is a very nice touch. They are begging to be paired with a pretty dress or a flippy skirt. And the best part? They cost under 30 bucks.

I love high heels and fun colors. These are perfection.

Such a pretty top. It's ethereal and girly. It also comes in a dreamy lavender-periwinkle color. I can picture it paired with some skinny jeans a flat sandal, maybe with some fancy chandelier earrings.

Another amazing dress, in a beautiful color. It looks supercomfy.

Domestic Goddess

In my continuous quest for procrastination I baked a cake today. Actually, that was not my intention. I went to the supermarket to buy some hot cocoa mix because it's one of those days when hot chocolate would be perfect (hot chocolate+Property hw+ Jack Bauer= yess!) But alas, product placement...the baking goods aisle is so enticing. I picked up a lemon cake mix and vanilla frosting. Now I'm not one for baking...I figure, why do it yourself when you can buy it? But there's something so satisfying about MAKING something yourself. It kinda just tastes better (even though in reality it might not!)

1 cup water + 1/3 cup oil + 3 eggs+ cake mix+ 350 degree oven +30 minutes = delicious looking golden cake

Verdict? Pretty darn good. The lemon flavor was not too strong, however. I think next time I'm going to add some lemon juice and lemon zest in order to amp up the citrusy taste.

No limbs were lost in the making of this culinary creation.
