Top 10 Mascaras

There are so many kinds of mascara out there. Sometimes it can be intimidating not knowing what to buy or even what you are looking for in one. First all I have to say is unless you are going to be around water don’t buy waterproof. Unless there is a chance of tears or if your eyes tend to water.

I don’t know about you but if I have my mascara on I feel Continue reading

Growing up I always remember once the cold weather came my dad and I would go to the grocery store and get a few of the suet feeders.

Angle Food Cupcakes

Angle Food Cupcakes

Oh baking how much I love the look of the finished food and the idea, I always tell people I can’t bake and that statement is true most of the time.

I can’t help myself I love puns.

One day while on Pinterest I was looking for some baking ideas for a future post and came across Angle Food Cupcakes from Cooking Classy. Without reading what was involved I knew I wanted to make these! Note to self read everything first! These are not the type of cupcakes I would bake just because some of the steps are things I am 100% good at messing up! Okay so let’s get to it!  Continue reading
