Last year I posted 5 Fun Halloween Costumes that you could create yourself fairly easily. This year I’m back with 5 new ideas, this time for couples or groups. Once again, these costumes are perfect for anyone on a budget- especially those who like making their own costumes and/or have access to a thrift store. I’m going to give each costume idea a separate post, but here is a sneak preview:
As a product of the 80’s/90’s, I couldn’t resist a healthy dash of nostalgia. Stay tuned for more info!
For several years my boyfriend Phil and I have been dabbling in photography, and recently we have managed to get a fair amount of experience under our belts (some weddings, sporting event, family portraits, etc.) We decided to get serious about photography and have recently started a small business called Loch Studio which I am really excited about. We provide quality photography and reasonable prices throughout the Philadelphia/NJ area. Check it out!
I LOVE weddings. I’m not yet married, but when it comes time to plan my own wedding you can bet there will be a LOT of personal touches that I will make myself. Until that time comes I have taken to helping other brides plan their big days. I use Etsy to sell handmade favors and wedding gifts, and I also recently designed Philadelphia themed thank you tags for a friend’s bridal shower.
They turned out great- sinfully sweet and absolutely delicious. Thanks Jenine!!
The cupcake stand was a gift from my sister, isn’t it adorable? It’s like serving a bouquet of cupcakes.
Don’t mind the intentional misspelling in the title, it’s an excerpt from my former roommate’s self penned birthday song. Shout out to Melissa! Anyway, today is my 24th birthday and I planned a dinner at an Italian restaurant followed by a small party back at my place. Pretty much every year my friend Jenine and I make each other cake or cupcakes (you may remember these from her birthday a month ago) and this year she is making me a very special kind of cupcake- Butterbeer Cupcakes! I stumbled upon this recipe at amyBITES a few months ago and after trying Butterbeer at the Harry Potter theme park last summer, I knew I had to have them. Clearly I am a Harry Potter nerd. Anyway I can’t wait to try these little drops of geek heaven tonight, and I will update soon to let you know how they are. Jenine is a fabulous baker so I’m sure they will be incredible.
My friend Jenine had a birthday recently, so I decided to make cupcakes. Jenine really loves lemon (you should see how many wedges she squeezes into her water) so I wanted to come up with a bright, citric, lemon-based cupcake for her. The result was these lemon lime cupcakes with a lemon curd filling and lemon frosting. HOLY LEMON!
