Fashion, Food, Desserts, being a 30-something mom is exciting!

Phoning It In

Today that was me, totally, utterly “phoning it in”, clothing wise! I started the day in pants, or should I say “slacks”, and then swapped them out for a skirt when I ran out of the house for errands this afternoon. Of course I was so busy baking I didn’t get photos in my first outfit. I did for the second one…and honestly? I was not feeling it. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t feeling extraordinary today? Not sure, but I sure was feeling macaron-making! 

First my outfit:



  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade
  2. Blouse: Elle (Kohls)
  3. Skirt: Kate Spade
  4. Belt: Kate Spade
  5. Shoes: Christian Louboutin

Today was a major baking day. See, it started yesterday when I went to the dentist. And walked out with a handful of macaron orders. I had to bake already today, so what was 8 dozen more macarons?! I also did a new flavour, Key Lime Pie (key lime buttercream with biscoff cookie crumbles!)





It was soooo good. And tomorrow? It will be even better!!!! I also made a cake, my white chocolate cake with fresh strawberries, covered in my strawberry buttercream (that is more buttery than sweet. It’s divine), for a colleague of my husband’s wife. He was SO excited about this cake, it just reminded me WHY I love to bake, because of how happy it makes others! I do hope his wife loves it, and t lives up the the “hype”!! (I had sent cupcakes a few weeks ago of the same cake/icing combo to my husbands office. I think it’s even better in a cake though. It smelled sooooooo amazing)





Yes, I had TV on the iPad….Reign on the CW. I just love seeing the costumes!!!!

And finally I finished this little project, for my youngest who requested it for a special event coming up. I love that he wants something sparkly to go with my shoes for our outing!!



My youngest kills it! Well and my middle son, he always wears a sparkly bow tie to events! It’s kind of their “thing”. The girls dig it too. 

And now, off to bed. I excited for next week, my schedule slows down a bit and I get a “do-nothing” day!! Of course all my insanity IS self inflicted, but it sure is fun to run like a madwoman!!

Until next time,

Jules

    • I do usually bake in whatever I am wearing, with a VERY large apron over it!!! I don’t normally have photos as I’m typically alone in my kitchen! 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by!

      ❤ Jules
