Chocolate Cupcakes with a Cherry on Top!

Last night, I was CRAVING something sweet, but since I gave up ice cream for Lent it feels more like withdrawal! So I scrambled and pulled out a bunch of stuff out of my cabinets to find that I have an abundance of flour, chocolate, and cherries!

I used Hersey's recipe for Perfectly Chocolate Cake because it's absolutely delish! The cupcakes are super moist and the cherry on top just adds to these indulgent cupcakes.

Pretty Little Party

We all have our guilty pleasures, mine include leopard print, ice cream, quesadillas, and ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars. I've been in bed all day watching the PLL marathon that leads up to the season finale at 7pm. I got inspired by their different personalities, try these tips for a fun watch party, girls' night in, or a LBD friendly gathering.

Not So Wordless Wednesday

When I need a mental vacay, I think about how the sand felt between my toes as the ocean rushed over my ankles.
Happy Hump Day!

Puppy Love...A Grrrl's Best's Friend

I know you're probably thinking, "where have you been for the past six month?" Well:

  • I completed my master's degree, officially have a Master's of Sciences in Integrated Marketing Communications from Roosevelt University:-)
  • Went to Hawaii as a graduation/birthday/Christmas trip EVER
  • Slowly adapted to a single lifestyle. I even considered chronicling my efforts in a book...
  • Haven't been in the kitchen as much as I wanted. Found out that my oven doesn't work, tried to replicate my infamous piña colada cupcakes to no avail. I eventually baked them over a friend's house and they came out perfect. 
  • My best friend, Lucky, a German/Belgian Shepard mix of 13 years passed. Don't think I'll ever have another pet like him.
Couple of days ago, I wondered into a pet store to waste some time and play with puppies. I played with a Siberian Husky that was too cute for words. It wasn't five minutes before he tried to eat my purse, shoes, and scarf (which caused me to choke). The nerve, an outfit is all about the accessories! Needless to say, we handed that him back pretty quickly.
