In honor of National Burger Day today, I wanted to name this post “DIY mini macaron cheeseburgers and fries… and milkshakes… and sprinkles”, but Google said that was too long, so just consider the mini milkshake and sprinkles an added bonus from me to you. Technically I would never have known it was National Burger Day if it wasn’t for Kelly (thanks for having my back Kel!), but the point is is that I’m not one to pass up a good #glossaryofmacs opportunity anyways, now am I?!

Also, can we have an open honest discussion about how freaking tricky making mini sugar cookie french fries can be?! I mean, holy baked goods. It took me three tries to get something that didn’t look like giant, deflated fingers next to these mini cheeseburgers, but, I think I figured out the secret!…

I, Carly, have a thing for flowers. I know, that’s probably pretty obvious at this point. But really, it’s true. I spend a good portion of my time playing with them. And when I’m not playing with them, I’m usually thinking about them. As a matter of fact, the only other creative outlet I’ve found that gives me as much artistic pleasure is writing. (And food, but we’ll save that for another post.) So it was only natural that I would eventually start writing in flowers, which led me to these DIY flower artwork printables.

Sure, it’s a little on the time-consuming side, but who can complain when you get to hash out your thoughts AND soak in a little piece of nature’s beauty, all at once?  Not I. On the contrary, I highly recommend it. All you have to do is go to your local craft store to pick up some white foam core board. Then swing by the flower market on your way home, and you’re in business! Or you can print and frame the flower artwork from our phrases…

Well if there is one thing we can all agree on here, it’s that I don’t need to explain my problem with an incessant sweet tooth. I even named the blog after it, for crying out loud. The good news is that no tears will be shed when it comes to summer and this low calorie spiked watermelon sorbet recipe! No ma’am! Thanks to Skinnygirl® Cocktails , this little piece of heaven only has about 60 calories per serving!

This is what I like to call a no regrets beach drink, since you can have the whole ice cream maker to yourself if you want, and it still beats a margarita in numbers. I have plenty more ideas up my sleeve for this collection, but for those of you in Houston, mark your calendars for September because we’ll be hosting an awesome (and free!) DIY event for local Skinnygirl® Cocktails Tastemakers at our studio!…

14 Bold and Bright Products You Need!

05/21/15

Most of the time I, Lee, am content to be surrounded by lots of white, black and neutrals. But it seems around this time every year (and just about ALL year around Sugar & Cloth!) I get bit by the bright color bug (which I’ll gladly take over a mosquito any day!). The grass is greening up, the trees are bursting with blossoms, the annual spring flowers have sprouted and I want to participate in this fantastic compendium of color, and these are 14 bold and bright products you need this Summer!

The good thing is that it’s really easy to do! Just by adding one standout piece to a room, such as an amazing red chair, a sculptural pendant or a few fresh art prints you can bring the whole space to life. The same goes for your summer wardrobe too. It could be a great dress, a bright bag or even a swimsuit in a show stopping color that gives your closet the color injection it needs.

Maybe you’re way ahead of me, and are already a connoisseur of all things bright and bold, but if not, this little roundup of all the colorful goodies will get you on track for a seriously super summer!
