I’m finally back from the West Coast, and while I catch up on the thousand emails and to-do lists that have piled up, I’m sharing this wishbone donut recipe over on Studio DIY while she’s honeymooning! They’re perfectly fitting for the donut Queen if I do say so myself.
In other news, I have a cool giveaway for you tomorrow plus a DIY or two up my sleeve for the rest of the week, so stick with me here while I overcome my macaron hangover from California…

I have a little confession to make, I’m kind of a fan girl over Alana Jones Mann. It’s a love affair I’ve been meaning to tell you about since I met her at a blog conference last year and she handed me a business card that was a slice of cake made out of a makeup sponge. I practically asked her if we could be best friends right on the spot.
Somehow I convinced her almost a year later to help me create a Thanksgiving tabletop idea I’ve been dreaming up (since she is the queen of cupcake toppers, after all), and the end result is kind of blowing my mind! To bring a little extra handmade action to the table, I created DIY gold leaf napkin rings to go along with Alana’s edible DIY Thanksgiving dinner cake toppers…
Because we haven’t had a crazy enough schedule the last few weeks (hence the sarcasm), we’re headed to Palm Springs and Los Angeles for a long weekend for Kelly’s much anticipated wedding! Prepare yourself for TONS of colorful photos since that’s what Palm Springs does best, and be sure to follow along on Instagram plus see photos from all of my other travels with #sugarandclothtravels.
In the meantime, I’ll be trying to catch up on emails (sorry if you haven’t heard back from me yet, I’m trying!), and prepare yourself for some holiday awesomeness coming up next week! To get the party started early, you can head over to Giftry to enter to win $1000 worth of your Giftry items ! Yes, for real. We’re talking free prezzies for the whole fam! Sign up to enter to win and then you can follow my lists for favorite gift items here, too.

The holidays really mean two things around here: one being that cake and cookies are always a good idea, and two, my mint green, gold, and white color combination obsession is in season for a full month. Let’s just say I always run with that for as long as I can, and H&M is helping support the habit.
My ideal holiday style keeps you party ready either as a host or party-goer, plus a few gift ideas on my Pinterest board for gift giving for everything in between. And of course, there always has to be a DIY…
