Frozen

It’s another snowy (rather icy) day in Atlanta. We’ve been hit with another winter storm, only this time I can actually enjoy it. After the first Snowpacolypse, the city advised that everyone stay indoors for the time being, but cabin fever has already started to kick in, so I ventured out to see the frozen city. Everything is so beautiful, covered in a white blanket of snow, and although I really can’t go anywhere, I am quite cozy working from home. Why can’t this happen more often?

Currently Craving: Boyfriend Jeans

According to Sunday’s discovery, we are still looking at six more weeks of Winter, but that isn’t stopping me from dreaming about my Spring wardrobe. The first thing I plan on adding to my closet is a pair of boyfriend jeans. They’re comfortable, can be dressed up or down, and pair well with just about any type of shoe. I can’t believe I don’t own a pair! There are  variety of brands to choose from, but here a few that I’m currently craving.

Olympic Cupcakes

The Winter Olympics begin tonight, so I whipped up some festive cupcakes to celebrate. I’ve always loved the Olympics, but as a former competitive figure skater, I appreciate the Winter Olympics even more. To show some USA team spirit, I used this recipe for the cake since it incorporates the red, white, and blue sprinkles. I even had some flag cupcake liners leftover from the 4th of July which were perfect. I topped the cupcakes with a homemade buttercream and some M&M’s to represent the Olympic rings. I’m looking forward to watching all the events, especially figure skating, and these cupcakes will be nice to snack on.

Little Red Dress

2014-02-02_19-00-45{1/2/3/4}

A little black dress is always a go-to for date nights, but when it comes to Valentine’s Day, I like to spruce things up a little. This year, I’ll be reaching for my little red dress, which is just as classic and adds that much needed pop of color. These are some of my favorite little red dresses  that will fit just about any budget. I’ll be wearing this scalloped number come V-day and I hope my boyfriend loves it just as much as I do!
