If this color dipped coffee set DIY from Rebecca at A Daily Something hasn’t knocked your socks off yet, then just check out some of her other projects here. Crazy amounts of talent over there! I found out about her blog through Twitter (which, admittedly, I don’t use very often), nonetheless I’m glad I did! I have to say, I’m always excited to come across people who aren’t afraid to express their love of God, and honor Him with what they do.
For instructions to make your own, read more!

I’m giving myself the day off today on account of the fact that it’s my birthday. Well, technically yesterday was my birthday but because of work, the celebrating starts today. I’ll catch you tomorrow! :)

Remember my rant about cookies and NyQuil? Well, I present to you the aftermath. This cake batter bark from Sweetapolita was perfect for two reasons: Number one it’s delicious (as is everything else she makes), number two, it’s so simple that even though I was in no condition to operate heavy machinery, I could still whip up this recipe. To top it all off, I decided to go the extra mile and make heart shapes out of it too. After all, why avoid making heart shapes if you don’t have to?
6 ounces (180 grams) high quality dark or extra dark chocolate, chopped
12 ounces (360 grams) high quality white chocolate, chopped
3 teaspoons white cake mix
Sprinkles of choice
1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
2. Chop chocolate.
3. Melt dark chocolate either in the microwave or a double boiler. If using microwave, place chopped chocolate in a microwave-safe container (I use a Pyrex glass measuring cup), and heat for 20 second intervals, stirring each time with a silicone spatula. Be careful not to burn the chocolate–when there are just a few small bits left unmelted, you can simply continue to stir until it is completely smooth.
To make the heart shapes, all you have to do is use a cookie cutter on the batter just before it’s completely cooled. This way the chocolate is strong enough to take the shape, and when it cools, you can just pick it up from the wax paper!

Maybe I’m an old soul, but sometimes I think more, is well, more. These vintage inspired swimsuits from Shabby Apple are the perfect example. Can you really say no to round sunnies, glass coca cola’s, and pink frills? Didn’t think so..
