Hello darlings!
Goodness, I think I have just been enjoying the sunshiny warm weather a little too much that the wee ol blog has been ever so slightly neglected.  I can just never get enough sunshine...yes this is my time of year!  So my weekend was filled with plenty of nature walking, thrifting, milkshake drinking, and cupcaking.  - Yes I realize that is not a real verb, but it should be, right?  On that note, my white chocolate banana cupcakes with honey cinnamon frosting turned out scrumptious-dilly-umptious, so sometime this week I will be posting that recipe here on my lil ol space.  Nom nom.  I would highly recommend them if you are a cupcake lover yourself.

Enough about me...  Over at Chantilly Songs today a party is going on to celebrate Chantilly's recent cd release, "Up to the Moon".  If you feel so inclined be sure to pop on over and check it out as both her blog and music are just as sweet as cherry pie (and will surely not disappoint).  I was also so thrilled to recently come home to this thank you package she sent me filled with her cd, a tote, and the most darling little plaid skirt she thrifted for me as a thanks for backing her album:)

That's all for now.  Hope you week is full of plenty of sunshine!
 Love Bunches!

  3. I'm so excited for Chantilly too- the EP is beautiful! She sent you some great stuff, I love the bag and that skirt is perfect for you. Turquoise tights are the best :) This time of year is my favorite too, I love spending time in the sunshine and soon in AZ it will be WAY to hot to be outside much. Can't wait for the recipe!

  7. What an awesome skirt! ;) I love how you manage to match colors, patterns and textures! I'm such a disaster in that department :/. When I loved in Argentina, every time I dressed up to go out, my sister would stop me by the door and say something like, "Naaaah! You CAN'T leave like that! You mixed all the wrong patterns, colors, textures and styles!?" Hahaha :p. She studies fashion design, by the way.

    Hope you're having a great week! ;D And yes, I want to see your banana cupcakes, please, haha :p.

  24. Spending sunny days out and about is definitely a good reason for less blogging. Who wants to be on the computer when it's so nice outside?
    This is a lovely ensemble-the tights are the most wonderful shade of blue! I'm swooning a bit over how well they match your pin :)

    1. Hi ML!
      I use Flickr.com to host my photos. On there, you are able to edit and adjust the size of your photos through Aviary (it's a pop up editing tool located under the "actions" drop down menu on your photo.) From there you just click on resize. Whether vertical or horizontal, I make the width of all my photos 600. It would like uploading your photos directly to Blogger instead of fiddling with html codes, you can use any online editor like PicMonkey or even your computers own photo software like Iphoto to resize your photos and make them all the same width. Hope that helps:) xx Marisa
