Winter's Best Accessory

What's one of the best accessories a woman can have during winter: Scarfs. I am obsessed with them! I remember my first scarf and thought whoa this is too loud. I never wore it and honestly don't know what happened to it. But back then I didn't have much fashion sense. Even now I really don't but one things for sure I love my scarfs and they are awesome to make a nice fashion statement. They are becoming so popular and women are walking around making bold statements with them. Check out a few of the ones I own!

Lavender Cuteness!!

I made this cute baby blanket for a friend that just had a baby girl. I had the pleasure of meeting her baby yesterday and she is so precious and adorable!!

I got my inspiration to crochet this blanket from Pinterest. Pinterest is just an awesome site!! If you're interested in the pattern click here and it will take you to Craft Passion. The type of yarn I used was Baby Soft from Lion Brand Yarn, color White & Lavender.

Now I'm ready to work on my next project!

Delicious Pound Cake!!

I'm so excited to be writing about this recipe! I had been looking for a pound cake recipe for a while that I knew I would like. There's something about a pound cake that takes me back to my younger years. It's a great dessert to drink with coffee/milk or to have as a snack if you've had a long day and just want to indulge in something so yummy. I personally love it! ♥

The recipe I used is from Laura Vitale's Kitchen. I found her website through itsJudysLife YouTube channel because her husband BenjiManTV recommended to check her page out. I'm glad I did! She has a ton of recipes and can't wait to try more!

Here's how my pound cake turned out. I just followed her instructions (using the blog & video) and voila! pound cake done and ready to serve.

If you get a chance, give it a try. I don't think you'll regret it. ☺

Perfume...Just what I needed!

"Nana," our mom came to visit us last weekend. It was great having her here and being able to spend time with her. And most of all the kids had a great time as well. Nana lives in a cool city (Seattle) that has awesome stores like Victoria's Secret, H&M, White & Black Market House, Carters, and of course the list goes on. You definitely don't see these kinds of stores in AK. And my mom knows me & my sister too well. ☺

It was also like perfect timing because I had run out of perfume. My husband sometimes makes fun of me and says I spill my perfume because I swear it goes by so quick. Its not like I'm over spraying and I reek like perfume I just like to use every time I shower. Plus it smells great!! So I was happy when my mom surprised me with a bottle of Victoria's Secret London perfume. I was literally down to the samples of my last Sephora order. So thank you mom for perfect timing and this awesome bottle!

My sister got one too. It's also a Victoria's Secret perfume called Gorgeous. But she's not like me who sprays away. =) She's more of the special occasion type of person. In fact, she still has a bottle that my mom gave her last year. Can you believe that? Maybe I'm doing something wrong. Lol. Do you use your perfumes up quickly or do they last you a long time?

Also have you ever had that problem where you put a scent on you and it doesn't even last? There's only one time I can remember that someone complimented me on a scent which was from a Mary Kay product, but I can't remember the name of it, so I guess I'll have to do some searching.
