desserts galore

I’m admiring these pretty wedding-inspired dessert displays via WeTV. {Clockwise from top-left: Yes, Please Design, Bobbette & Belle, Sweet and Saucy Shop, and Amy Atlas Events. Photos by: Erin Hearts Court, Art of Weddings, Aaron Shintaku, and Gemma Comas.}

new projects + yoga

Now that I’ve taken the first step and actually finished a piece {see skirt}, I’m more motivated to start working on a couple new pieces {dresses} with some fabrics I bought above. I have the design down, but the execution part is always the most tricky part of all. Next goal: adding the zipper.

Getting the shop opened and ready is going to take more time than I had anticipated. Yikes. I need to get my lazy butt off the couch and away from the TV as much as possible from now on.

Oh, and I finally started Yoga (at home). It’s pretty hard, and I found out how extremely stiff and inflexible my body is. Let’s hope that doing Yoga regularly will improve my flexibility a bit. It’s almost like working out, right?


almost there

Chicken drumsticks marinated two ways with: soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, rosemary, and various spices. Crab salad with homemade dressing: vinaigrette, extra virgin olive oil, and sesame oil. Thin spaghetti noodles cooked in butter, garlic, and cilantro.

Just two more weeks and I’ll be in Europe for the first time ever. The excitement didn’t last long after finding out I’ll be going over there for work. But as each week ends and a new one begins, it’s slowly bubbling up again as I get closer and closer to departure. Not to mention I will be turning 25 somewhere in mid-air between the US and Ireland..!

I finally finished making this skirt! There were some reversing and re-planning, not including frustrations and distractions {from Link}, but I completed it. The first time is always the roughest, so this is nowhere up to par. But at least I have a new skirt to wear for summer now. =)

I always walk past arĂ­a floral as I leave work every afternoon, and finally decided to check the place online instead of constantly peering through their windows at the samples. Their gallery shows some pretty nice event and floral work. {Images: Joey Nicole Photography, Janet Klinger Photography, J Garner Photography, and Azzura Photography).
