Taking a page from Gala's blog, I might want to start doing "Things I Love Thursdays" because it's such a good idea, to simply post the things you are thankful for/loving/obsessing over that week!
Cupcakes! B & I had a cupcake adventure yesterday involving Gigi's cupcakes, sequin bunny ears and vintage dresses (pictures coming soon!) The wind did not at all cooperate with us, however. In the end, we ended up in my backyard taking the majority of our photos before devouring our icing-mountain cupcakes. The ladies at Gigi's looked at us strangely when we sashayed in through the doors in our poofy dresses and ordered a box of cupcakes. We chose four flavors: Banana Split, Champagne, Birthday & Margarita. As far as cupcakes go, they were delicious. Banana split was probably more banana-y than I would have liked but it did taste exactly like a banana sundae. Champagne is basically just vanilla; pretty to look at but nothing exciting. The birthday one was just like birthday cake, complete with pink frosting and sprinkles. The margarita cupcake was my favorite. In theory, it sounds a little disgusting. In reality, just picture a bright green cupcake that smells strangely like ice cream but tastes like lemon-limey-minty-cupcake with hints of margarita flavor. Muddy's Bake Shop is still my favorite place for cupcakes. The grasshopper cupcake is my favorite (chocolate cupcake with light green peppermint icing). If you're even in the Memphis area, definitely put Muddy's on your to-do list!
Reading! Books, fashion magazines, blogs. It seems like I've been buying up all sorts of fashion magazines lately. Elle, Food network, Vogue... I haven't even gotten around to reading them yet! They are stacked all neatly on my bedside table. I'm also currently in the middle of reading Lo Bosworth's The Lo-Down & I just recently finished Tucker Max's second book, Assholes Finish First. If you haven't read any of his stuff, go get his first book, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell. It's essentially a collection of his drunken adventures and sexual escapades. Truly hilarious, though!
