cupcakes make everything better.


I love a good bargain. I also love nice little distractions from the day to day responsibilities I've got going on. Things lately have been well, a little hectic. I am currently juggling work and Momzilla. Yes, my mom has gone into full fledged wedding planning mode. Every day, I am bombarded with ideas for venues, wedding favours, apartments in the area.....anything and everything you could possibly imagine.

Here's the thing: I love that she is helping. It means so much to me that I have her support and guidance during this huge transitional period in my life. But - there is so much for me to think about. Planning the wedding, figuring out living arrangements, thinking about packing up my room, going to try on dresses. It's enough to make my head explode! I think that's why I have been a little slow to start. There are so many changes happening and I am just trying to keep my head above water.

Don't get me wrong. I am so excited. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with my boyfriend (now fiance!). It's just all of the planning and responsibilities and changes that are making life a little more complicated. That is exactly why today's post is dedicated to something I love.

Cupcake earrings!

As you can probably guess from the picture above, I recently added a pair of super cute cupcake earrings to my jewellery box. They were on sale for $1....who could resist? What I love about them? They are fun, silly, and perfectly cute. I like that they remind me of Katy Perry or something designed by Betsey Johnson. These earrings just make me smile. That's why I've been wearing them so often lately. When in doubt....wear cupcakes!

So, these earrings are making me smile lately. They remind me to calm down - and not take everything so seriously. Things will get done. Plans will be made. I just need to take a deep breath, relax, and throw on my cupcake earrings.

What do you think of these earrings? Do you have a favourite pair?
