Ten of My Favorite Things

7:30 PM

Hi everyone! This week I wanted to share with you ten of my favorite things--from music to food to books! Hope you enjoy!

1.) My first favorite thing is something I splurged on at Sephora. A face mask. It's literally a big wet tissue that fits your face. Yes, I know it sounds dumb, and I looked ridiculous (and somewhat scary) wearing it, but my skin felt so nice and clean afterward! I bought the green tea mask for $6  (I know, I splurged!), but there are lots more to try as well. Honey, lotus, ginseng, pomegranate...

My Macaron Mishap

7:02 PM

One of the adventures I had during my spring break was trying for the first time ever to make macarons. Yep, the elusive dessert that refuses to be mastered. It wasn't perfect (hence the blog entry title), but I did it! And they were delicious. Follow the recipe below (adopted from Popsugar) to have your own macaron mishap! And don't worry if it doesn't turn out perfect!

Fun in the Garden

7:58 AM

The weather is warming, and its time to get gardening! Last Friday, I made a trip to Home Depot and got a little carried away. I have four raised garden beds that I use every year. Hopefully I'll have enough room!


 There is something so inspiring about seeing rows and rows of possibilities for your garden.
On Saturday, I spent the entire day outside gardening. The weather is beautiful here. Here's a picture of four terracotta pots that I painted and planted my herbs in.


Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everybody!

I hope you have a fun-filled day with family, friends, and chocolate! I painted my Easter eggs yesterday and I think they turned out really cute. For this post, I'm just going to share some pictures. Happy Easter!
