What do you do when you make too much icing while putting together some food for your sister-in-laws baby shower?It is a very specific hypothetical but I think the intelligent response is to either throw it away or if you have another occasion coming up, use it for that. My response was to make a whole new cake to pair with the salted caramel icing I made. Turned out to be the best tasting cake I’ve made in a long time!
Snuggle pot and cuddle pie were introduced to me as a new child of Australia and man did I think it was odd at first…but then this is the same beautiful country that adopted “once a jolly swagman” as the morbid people’s choice national anthem. The illustrations kept me paying attention and now it is a trigger of childhood memories.
Have you ever found yourself having singular interests when it comes to colours? I’ve been crushing hard on nudes and blush tones to the point that it even seems to have permeated my make up and meals. I suppose it’s a pretty safe colour palette to consume, I just home it doesn’t morph into something ugly, I’m looking at you ‘the 80’s’!
Solange, you unique creative lady you. I’ve always imagined it would be hard to be ‘Beyonce’s sister’ but then again, you’re Solange. I’m sitting here, mother of two boys; one currently slumbering in my lap at 2:47am listening to ‘A seat at the table’ over the howling wind outside and praying to God I teach my boys how to value women and humans in general, with equity.
Shoe collaborations have been letting me down lately so I was trying not to be so fool hardy as to get carried away the next time I heard of a new release and then VANS X TOY STORY happen. For adults of my generation it was a pervasive force in our childhood with it’s huge movie debut and subsequent sequels. It put Pixar on the map in my child brain like nothing but that parent & baby lamp cartoon could. While it’s not like Justin Beiber or Harry Potter when it comes to taking over a life, my son wears Buzz Lightyear PJs having never watched the movie. The fandom is real and somewhere in my brain or my heart, a pilot light is still on waiting for this moment.
