Guilty pleasure: Cupcake Heights

                                         Guilty Pleasure...

            Let’s face it, everybody’s got to indulge in a little guilty pleasure from time to time. We are all human after all!  I mean, I’m human for crying out loud right! One of my favorite things to snack out on, when misbehaving... as I'm assuming you've guessed! Cupcakes! Just looking at the pictures of these absolutely gorgeous cupcakes makes me want to forget my diet regimen and over indulge myself. With the perfect ratio of cupcake to frosting, could it really be such a terrible thing to over indulge myself with? Na! The long lasting and rich aroma of the cupcakes, their perfect texture and not to mention all the love and care put into them makes them Oh-so easy to fall for! And you better believe I'm falling! Lost somewhere in between the Cinnamon-Apple and sultana, Chocolate, Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes with Chocolate and Coconut Frosting and the Banana and pecan Cupcakes, I am left literally dancing with gluttony! They bake Cupcakes that come from the heart. So, forget the diets and indulge your taste buds and tummies in these Cupcakes are defiantly well worth it!
         The Company is owned by one of my dearest friends and his loyal friend and partner in crime, and although this charming couple are just starting out they seem to be marked for success! And we are wishing them nothing short of the very best! Specializing in Cupcake and Cake Decoration the business is currently operating in the Western Suburbs of Sydney. For those of you in the area, visit Cupcake Heights at Magpie Markets every 3rd Sunday of the Month, Lawson Public School, Adelaide Street just off the Great Western Highway, I want feed back!

Be Mine


                                     Happy Valentines Day!! 

                                                                                                               ~ S

          When you mention Valentines day to most of us, the first thing that pops into mind are those massive red heart shaped boxes filled with chocolates that you so crave but then after you eat you regret, long stemmed red roses that will wilt and ruin the bottom of your nice vase, a cheap teddy bear that sings the words "I Love You" or "Be Mine" making you smile and love at first but loath by the end of the week, candle lite dinners and cute game of footsie and a charming diamond necklace all leading into an evening of lust... Or so goes the Valentines day stereotype is at least!

          Guys hate this holiday in particular not because cupids arch nemesis shot them with a holiday antidote to cupids love arrows I can assure you! But rather because its another day girls treat just like their birthday and worse! So lets try removing the pressure to conform and make today just as much about them! Go out of your way to make his day that much easier, I love Valentine’s Day because its  just another excuse to surprise people and make them feel loved!

         The color scheme of this romantic holiday makes for the perfect bouquet of gorgeous flowers (Guy tip: While Red Roses are B.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l, they are expected. I would suggest surprising your special someone with a bouquet of her favorite flowers). Beautiful desserts, candle lit dinners and the most elegant date night outfits.  So, for those of you heading out tonight let your seductive  side shine through. Mixing vibrant pinks with bold reds is a surefire way to make a statement, or the more girlie side come out to play and try combining pale shades of pink with crisp whites to create a whimsically amorous feel! 

          Today is about making people feel special and loved! If you don't have time, make it! Take a few minutes out of your busy day to put a smile on their face.  Run a hot bath, cook a simple dinner or even order take out chinese food and put in their favorite movie. Make today memorable!  
                                                                                    Happy Valentines Day Fashionistas!

So In Love With - Chamilia - Custom Jewelry


                                    About Chamilia 

        I first stumbled on Chamilia in Louisville KY, when an friend and I were browsing for gifts. We walked into one of their licensed retailers by chance and noticed the beads. I am a huge fan of Swarovski Crystals and anything that has anything to do with them! So you can all guess what I was drawn to first! but what I found was an absolutely ingenious company!  For Chamilia, the principle is simple: design is different here, as the lady behind the counter so proudly stated... and indeed it is! 

         The company was founded in 2002 by Killian Rieder and Jeff Julkowski on the premise of putting design into the hands of the customer. Killian, a former designer with fashion icon Polo, wanted this brand to be personalized to allow women to change and customize it to fit the mood, moment or occasion, like a chameleon that changes in its environment.

They launched Chamilia with a line of handcrafted beads of Italian Murano glass, colored stones, 14k gold and sterling silver that pair with beautifully designed companion bracelets, bangles and necklaces. The result is a fresh, contemporary twist on the richly remembered charm bracelet.

Today, Chamilia is fast becoming the “it” brand in the rapidly growing customized jewelry category. The company has a growing collection of 600+ beads and a successful Disney® partnership with an exclusive collection of authentic Disney beads not available anywhere else!

Chamilia supports communities and causes across the globe by introducing limited edition beads and donating a portion of the proceeds to support causes like Breast Cancer, Autism and world peace programs.

For those of you who are wondering! Yes, we did end up buying a beautiful bracelet for the lucky lady!

             Joseph Altuzarra has fast become one of my favorite New York designers. His aesthetic changes so dramatically each season and yet maintains his inimitable tough-chic touch. Like star London designer Christopher Kane, Altuzarra is all about shedding last season’s skin and revealing something completely new — and it is so exciting to see what his vision for the new season is going to be. For fall ’11, the look was downright cool. Reworked motorbike jackets, zippers, and straps were rife throughout the collection, which was conceived principally in charcoal, black, and burgundy, broken up with a classic argyle print. Boots were knee-high and intimidating, with fur jutting out along the tongue, and unusual heels featured silver sparkly toes with fur ankle straps — no doubt just the thing for avant-garde magazine editorial shoots in the months to come.


Joseph Altuzarra:An Over night fashion sensation!
