Scarf Challenge #3

Scarf Challenge #3! 
I wore the scarf as a head band! Fun :)
Well, this challenge was great to put together. If you have any more challenges, ideas, or items for me...shoot me an email ( or leave a comment.
*Note: do you like my purple tank top? It has this crochet back. Look what this fashion blogger says about crochet right now. It is a nice feminine detail that you think an older generation would wear, but totally wearable today!*

Scarf Challenge, outfit 2

Don't forget to be creative with your scarfs. They don't have to go around your neck, even though this would have been adorable around my neck. I just wanted to shake things up a bit and used this as my belt :)
*Notice the detail I did with the broach and the bobby pins in my hair*
Hope you liked outfit #2!

Scarf Challenge, Outift #1

Here is the first outfit of the challenge! All black with a punch of color...grandma Bligh's scarf. I wore this outfit to an outdoor wedding I played violin for. The scarf was held together by this scarf hook thing (see above in middle picture) that I got from my Grandma Frey's jewelry box. I haven't ever seen these scarf accessory/hook "thingys" (I don't even know the proper name for it). Totally useful, cute, and came in handy for this scarf and outfit. Let me tell you what our Granmother's generation had it together when it came to this scarfs business. 
Stay tuned for the other 2 outfits of the challenge!

Scarf challenge

David's grandmother was going to have a rummage. So, I went over to her house one day to look around to see what she was going to be selling at her rummage. She had these 3 fun and completely different looking scarfs. She was selling them for .10 each! She gave them to me for free. Here they are. Very cool. 
Now that the background story is told, I have decided to give myself a fashion challenge! I want to blog 3 outfits, one outfit that goes with each scarf. Let me present, "Scarf Challenge". 
In the next week, I will have 3 outfits blogged and you will be seeing these beautiful scarfs featured.

Project Runway Review

I ran out got the July issue of Marie Claire Magazine when it came out on stands. Why did I do this you ask? Well...Seth Aaron's collection was in this issue (winner of Project Runway, season 7). Here are the images from the magazine. I think they are beautifully created and very striking. One last congrats and good job to Seth Aaron. 

Brilliant work, maybe one day I will be able to purchase on of your pieces.

Happy Weekend and have a cupcake!

Here is a website for everyone to enjoy on their weekend. It is such a beautiful and light website...perfect for an easy weekend peak! 
What cupcake would you choose to make first? There is one for every type of person, no matter what food flavor you favor in life.
I would pick this one, Peanut Butter Cupcake with Peanut Butter Frosting and Chocolate Ganace. See below:
But the weird thing is, I don't have cupcake pans. So I need to go buy some. asap. lol.
