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


Halfway through another very crazy busy week! Lots of macarons this week, coupled with my miscalculations, and I had a pile of these: 

 This was a small pile, I actually ended up with 14 dozen of these cracked half shells! However, I just match them up, fill them with whatever I have, and I offer them for half price in not-so-pretty packaging. And those 13 dozen became 7 dozen “macawrongs” that were snapped up within a couple of hours. Sigh. At least it hit me this afternoon what I did wrong! A simple miscalculation on one of the ingredients in the meringue. Proof that I am only human and often make ridiculous mistakes!

I did pull together a cute outfit yesterday (which I repeated for bible study this evening, with different shoes), for the morning. Afternoon was the first cross country meet and I changed into a bright orange dress with my new blue handbag, school colors! (And didn’t take a photo. OOPS) 


  1. Blouse: Forever21, but picked up at Goodwill for $2
  2. Skirt: Kate Spade
  3. Belt: secondhand (under $5)
  4. Shoes: Kate Spade
  5. Handbag: Kate Soade Quinn

And today: 


  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade
  2. Dress: Kate Spade Jillian
  3. Shoes: thrifted 

My single surprise sale purchase came, and I fully admit I do regret not purchasing the smaller Flamingo bag as well. However, the reality is I didn’t need either one, and this one is way more practical: 

 I love the size. I really wish my cat maise was this size too, it’s the perfect size! Now she needs a name. 

Until next time,

    I can’t believe I held back from the surprise sale! The toughest thing for me to pass on were the floral photo print bags and wallets – too pretty, but ultimately unwearable! Right now I’m holding out for all the new goodies to hit the shelves. The macarons, by the way, were completely yummy looking cracks and all!
