So among my blog I have honorable mentions from the kitchen. Cooking is something that I truly enjoy and I love coming up with new creations. I whipped this cake up for a friends birthday just from ingredients I thought would work good together. After eating some I have more ideas on how to tweak the recipe in the future to make it even better. I started with a devils food cake, punched holes in it with a straw. Next I poured caramel in the holes, then topped the cake with whipped cool whip and topped with crushed butterfinger pieces. The crowd loved it but I still felt like it was missing something. Maybe I'll make perfection the next time!
Now's the time to redeem Torrid Haute Cash if you got em. I placed my order yesterday and quite possibly went a little overboard lol. But its for a good cause. I scrapped most everything in my closet and decided to start over so a lot of things went to Goodwill a lot of things went to the garbage lol but new me wants a new look. I purchased two sweaters, two tops a jean, a pair of Bermudas and several jewelry items and with all my Haute cash I only had to spend $178 so I felt pretty pleased with myself. So why are there still things I want to buy lol.
So I got the most recent lane bryant ad and immediately had to order what I hope is my summer go-to. It looks fabulous in the catalog and I hope it looks decent on me because its just my speed and I have so many ideas on how to make the look my own. I love dresses and skirts in spring & summer because I'm just not a shorts person. I don't like my pasty white legs lol I don't mind that they're not skinny just don't like that I'm so pale. And I'm against tanning so my options are limited lol. Here's the outfit as it looks on the website...

It's still a little cool around here so I decided to forego a sleeveless look this day and I added in an open front short sleeve cardigan, which I love!! I like a little more coverage on my arms over tanks but don't always like a long sleeve or 3/4 sleeve so this works perfect for me!!
I threw in the red belt to tie it all together and several strands of red beads because well I like red! It was such a beautiful day out and a great day for a photo shoot lol
Not one of my favorite pics but my husband loved it and wanted me to add it :)
Relaxing in the swing, its hard to be me!!
I was feeling all flirty and cute by this
point :) Not bad for a gal with no
I wish I didnt hate the way my smiles always turn out cheesy in photos lol. I opt for a more serious face and everyone thinks I am mad lol, but oh well, again it has a lot to do with my photographer...Love ya honey!!
And just because I got a new haircut I felt like I had to throw in a head shot lol. It's the first time in years I have tried bangs again but I'm growing out a shorter cut and I wanted some long layers and a long bang just to get rid of that straight flat hair crisis I was having lol.
Top and Pants c/o Torrid, shoes c/o Payless. Happy Shopping girls!!
