We’ve still got a few weeks left until the official last day of summer, and I don’t know about you, but I’m determined to make these next few weeks as summery and fun as possible! It helps that here in San Francisco, summer has only just begun and the days are heating up!
To celebrate, I’m whipping up these sweet mochi cakes, that have a dense, chewy texture that reminds me of my childhood eating mochi ice cream. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you better get your tush to the closest Asian grocery store and try some! Meanwhile… you can work on these scrumptious little mochi cakes…
Well, after hearing all of your wise words from this post, and have decided that I need to admit that I need extra hands! To start, I just need help on a per project basis throughout the week days anywhere between the hours of 10-4. The days and hours will vary depending on our current project schedule, but they will be planned in advance, or could be coordinated for set days if need be, and could become a regular position for the right person.
The perfect candidate would need to be organized, self-motivated, hardworking, a creative thinker, and most of all, meet the Sugar & Cloth brand aesthetic. Most days we’ll be working from the S+C studio in East Downtown Houston, so you would also need reliable transportation to get to and from. Students are welcome, but this isn’t to be considered an internship, you’ll definitely be put to hard DIY work!
Since we’re on topic of homes this week, I thought it’d be fitting to give you a run-down on an upcoming room makeover that I partnered up with Valspar on to showcase their new Valspar Reserve paint. I hope you’re ready for a color explosion! Okay, not really, although there is definitely more color involved than the usual white walls you may be used to around here (this one’s for you, Dad. He asks me on a regular basis to use colors that are easier to see!).
We’re going to be making over a little girls room, specifically my friend Cara’s daughter Ainsley (see her in all her cute glory here), to make it a bit more adult for her to grow into. Plus they just had a new baby and we want to make the space just girly enough for Ains, but gender neutral enough for a new baby brother and guests too. Now for the before photos and new room sources…
There’s just something about a good shift dress that I just love to freak out over. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because it’s the closest thing I’ve found to wearing a muumuu around to work while still remaining socially acceptable and feeling cute. Add that in with a funky print and I’m double sold!
What I’m really trying to say is a cute and easy to wear dress is pretty much the solution to all of my wardrobe problems, and I’ve picked out some of my favorites that are all under $100. Let’s be honest here, I’m a modestly sized blog.,$100 is pretty much my max dress budget…
