There’s Still Time for Valentine’s Day Prep!

There’s a cake pop obsession in the air that can only be quelled by the purchase of a Babycakes Cake Pop Maker and other cake making requirements.

My original plans for making cake pops were confined to having delicious treats to hand out to people at craft shows and as a birthday cake alternative, and I still believe these are very good ideas; I mean who doesn’t love free cake at a craft show or tiny bites of cake for us sugar challened individuals?  But cake pops on valentine’s day is just plain cute.

I think I just love that you can customize each cake pop instead of frosting a whole cake.  I get impatient trying to get the frosting even!

For those of you with lovely ladies in your life or for the couples who like to get extra intimate with shared tub time, Elleandblair have a cupcake bath bomb recipe that will make you and your special someone smell nice and have soft skin.

If you or your sweetie have any allergies on the list of ingredients or just have super sensitive skin, try a gentle oatmeal bath such as Lusaorganics’ baby bath bundle.  Containing all the wonderful sensitive skin care ingredients such as dried calendula flowers, dried lavender flowers, dried chamomile flowers, and Essential oil options like lavender or patchouli .

Happy Soaking!

These earrings at Shayisa’s shop on Etsy are the most beautiful earrings I’ve seen in quite a while and I’m one of those earring obsessed ladies who has to force herself to stay away from the jewelry isles (and makeup!) every time I’m in a store.

At her shop you’ll find many assortments of these kinds of pretend zero-gauge post earrings showing some of the most exquisite detail and in beautiful colors so that you can match every outfit or simply find your favorite color.

These gorgeous black swan earrings my just end up being my Valentine’s gift to myself!
