Easy Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Easy cinnamon sugar donuts by Sugar & Cloth, an award winning DIY and recipes blog.

I like to consider these easy cinnamon sugar donuts my foolproof recipe! With only four ingredients and less than 5 minutes of prep (for real!), I, Alex, can enjoy homemade donuts whenever the craving strikes.

This is the recipe that my mom used when we were growing up, a lazy response to kids begging for donuts on weekend mornings. I’m partial then to cinnamon sugar, her topping of choice, but any glaze or frosting will do…

FAQ: How are you able to travel so much?

FAQ: how are you able to travel so much? by top Houston lifestyle blogger, Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth

Jared and I get asked the question “How are you able to travel so much?” all. the. time. Let me start off by clarifying that I am not a trust fund baby. We’re very much the opposite of that, actually.

I’m also frequently very tired and sometimes grumpy like a troll, ha! It seemed as good a time as any to address this question after just getting back from our almost three-week Scandinavian trip. Why? Because I really want to reiterate that we make it a point to travel often,

My Current Favorite Essentials for Bloggers

My Current Favorite Essentials for Bloggers by Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth, a top Houston lifestyle blog.

A while back, I wrote a post called 10 secrets about being a DIY blogger. I spilled all my guts about the glamorous (and not so glamorous parts) of blogging, but I didn’t really include some of my favorite tricks of the trade!

I’ve spent more hours than I’d like to admit restyling melting ice cream or ice cubes to get the perfect photo. I’ve dropped my fair share of beautiful cakes, which I, of course,

Happy Mother’s Day!

An ode to our mom's for Mother's Day! by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth

In honor of Mother’s Day, we decided to put together a quick ode to our Mom’s to celebrate them on the world wide web. Not to worry Mom, I saved the stockpile of embarrassing stories for a future opportune moment.

If we’ve learned nothing else from this post though, it’s that we’re all pretty sure we have the best Mom’s ever…

The Best Shops and Sweets in Helsinki

The Best Shops & Sweets in Helsinki by Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth, an award winning DIY, travel, and decor blog.

We get asked quite a lot about how we plan for our travels. To be honest, it’s always a bit of a whirlwind. We’re usually only visiting somewhere for a short time, and we try to cram as many cute cafes and shops in as we can. Our recent cruise is a great example of getting to mark a lot of places off our bucket list in only a few days. This means getting a little creative, somewhat highly caffeinated,
