What’s Goin’ On: Fall Update

Image

This may be the most randomest post ever, (just warning ya now). But we’ve been MIA lately and haven’t been posting nearly as much as we’d like so we wanted to give you guys a little update!

The reason for the lack of posts is because we have been COMPUTERLESS (i know right?! bloggers without a computer – such a nightmare) for almost a month now which makes blogging extremely challenging… to say the least.

We are currently blogging using 2 Ipads (one full-size & one mini), which makes things just a tad bit harder. The formatting & text in new posts get all screwed up most of the time & editing text takes awhile, but the hardest thing is adding photos. We use a Canon camera, and don’t have a way to get the photos online right now.

Fear not! We are still busy baking new recipes which are all ready to go & will all be posted as soon as we get a new computer to upload & edit them! Until then, we are doing our best to continue to post regularly.

 We took some IPhone shots of some recipe sneak peaks below & some other random photos… Check it out! ๐Ÿ™‚

Picked up fun new bakeware from Michaels! Can’t wait to bake some spooky cupcakes.

To add to the randomness of this post, we are going to end this post with a little MUSIC(is there really any better way to end a blog post? ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

At Keloha Music Festival in Kelowna! – Saturday, July 6, 2013

Shad at Keloha!
His equipment broke down during his set so he ended up doing an impromptu freestyle rap performance which was crazy. Max (the lead singer from Arkells), was watching and joined him onstage for a impromptu performance of Ms. Jackson by Outkast.

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things… (Instagram Edition)

Anyone else have a love/hate relationship with Instagram?

I love that you can find great ideas & inspiration on Instagram, its a simple way to make your photos look good, there’s literally thousands of photos for any subject that you’re looking for & its also a great way to keep up with friends & family (aka stalk-your-ex-boyfriend). ๐Ÿ˜‰

On the other hand – you have to look through a ton of (how do I put it..) not-so-great photos to find quality ones, and it seems like every other photo is of a half-naked girl doing a duckface selfie.

So yes, Instagram has its pros & cons but I’d say the pros outweigh the cons…

Here a few of my favorite Instagram photos:

(note: i did not take or own any of the photos above. instagram users are credited below.)

Top Left: Quilted Couch by Instagram User – elsiecake

OBSESSED with that couch. I will have a couch like that in my place someday. (a girl can dream!)

Top Right: Braided Updo by Instagram User – thestylebrowse

If I weren’t totally useless at doing my own hair, I would totally wear this bun everyday. (i mean it, everyday. seriously. that’s how much i love it.)

Bottom Left: Bright Floral Cake by Instagram User – goodiegirlcooks

This cake caught my eye.. I love the bright colours and the technique used for the flowers. I’d love to try flowers like that on a cake someday.

Bottom Right: Homemade Pumpkin Cozies for Coffee Cups by Instagram User – faithsyarnworks

Guys. How cute are these?! I’m obsessed. They would be a great gift for any girl who’s obsessed with pumpkin spice lattes. Ordering one soon!

My mom always insists on using the baskets that have wheels on them while shopping, and I always laugh at her. I took a photo to show her how funny it looks but she somehow made it look cute…

Now for the ‘Throwback Thursday’ portion of this post – because we are SO excited for Christmas time, we wanted to post a few snapshots from last Christmas…
