Birthday Cake Balls




Between January and February five of my closest friends have birthdays. By the fourth birthday baking a cake seems boring and repetitive. To make things more exciting, instead of the traditional cake, I opted for the more exciting version of cake: cake balls. Not only are they extremely easy to make they are mouth-watering-ly (yes, I’m making up words!) good! I can not wait to experiment with different version and different flavors. If you have yet to eat one of these bite-sized pieces of heaven, you are seriously missing out!



Yes, I do realize it is only February, but I just couldn’t help myself from these two Mara Hoffman items. The play suit is beyond adorable  (and who ever said the romper is over is so seriously wrong!) and the maxi dress is ah-maze.

Loving these both so much, I can not wait til summer days by the beach sipping pina coladas and getting tan.

Summer, HURRY UP!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Although there is no special someone in my life, I am embracing Valentine’s Day whole-heartedly and celebrating with my girlfriends.
I can not wait to stuff myself with chocolates, watch some  corny love stories and spend the night with some people I love.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

Beckham Bodywear

I’m sorry have you seen this? If not, watch, then watch it again.
No doubt in my mind that this was the best Superbowl commercial.
So jealous Posh Spice gets to go home to that every night.
All I can say is yum.

Insta inspiration

January went by so fast, I feel like just  yesterday I was drinking champagne and celebrating the new year! But January has come and gone and I must say it has been a busy month. Here are just a few instagrams from the past month, including 4 birthdays (which involved the baking of 3 cakes brightly colored cakes!), celebratory jello shots, a girls night with one of my best friends, Sam, enlightening fortunes from fortune cookies, and a breakfast for champions, Captain Crunch, oops! all berries cereal.
Here’s to February! Let’s make it a good one! xox

Exit Wound

exit wound

you are an exit wound

the extra shot of tequila

the tangled knot of hair that has to be cut out

you are the cell phone ringing in a hushed theatre

pebble wedged in the sole of a boot

the bloody hangnail

you are, just this once

you are flip flops in a thunderstorm

the boy’s lost erection

a pen gone dry

you are my father’s nightmare

my mother’s mirage

you are a manic high
which is to say:
you are a bad idea

you are herpes despite the condom

you are, I know better

you are pieces of cork floating in the wine glass

you are the morning after
whose name I can’t remember
still in my bed

the hole in my rain boots

vibrator with no batteries

you are, shut up and kiss me

you are naked wearing socks

mascara bleeding down laughing cheeks

you are the wrong guy buying me a drink

you are the typo in an otherwise brilliant novel

sweetalk into unprotected sex

the married coworker

my stubbed toe

you are not new or uncommon
not brilliant or beautiful

you are a bad idea

rock star in the back seat of a taxi
burned popcorn
top shelf, at half price

you are everything I want

you are a poem I cannot write

a word I cannot translate

you are an exit wound

a name I cannot bring myself

to say aloud

-Jeanann Verlee

I found this poem while on stumble upon here. I am not really sure what I like most about the poem, I love the vivid-ness of the words, the imagery and the fact that it inspired me to start writing again. What do you think of it?
