{Color Palette} Jolly Holly Cake


I’m always excited to go home and visit the folks and my niece and nephew! I always feel the pressure to bake some sort of goody to pack with me on the plane. While browsing ideas, I came across this sparkly holly cake that would surely make my little niece and nephew jolly. (via I Bleed Cake)

I’m a big fan of sprinkles & a big fan of ombre. That’s why this cake is perfect for celebrating my BFF’s birthday! We all went to Cabo for an “early celebration” this month and I miss her already. (Get the recipe from Raspberri Cupcakes.)

What’s your favorite way to celebrate?

I’m loving their bold pattern flair!

Daydream In Aqua & Skintones

I’ve been dealing with a lot of stressful situations lately and so I feel like I haven’t quite gotten a summer. I’m still delayed daydreaming in the sun and the beach. Especially in aqua and skintones (for bathing suits!). This imagery relaxes me and makes some of my worries wash away…

How are you celebrating the end of summer?

The peachy pink hue of pale pink sets my heart a flutter. It makes me think of delicious macarons and cupcakes as well as light layers and a fresh face. It’s nude tone can be added to any outfit for a feminine touch. Let’s daydream together!

I’m basically a hoarder. I change what about every few months, but hoard I do. When I lived in Los Angeles, I used to spend my weekends at Surfas hoarding sprinkles like they were going out of fashion. You think I’m kidding, but I’m not. Hoarding in bulk is kind of the worst. I have a cabinet full of every color for every occasion you could possibly imagine to prove it. Naturally, I think of sprinkles for every party, bake sale, and celebration. Let’s hoard daydream together!

Do you like sprinkles? What’s your favorite kind?

I’ve been loving the bright and pastel variations of this color combo lately. It reminds me of strawberry lemonade, flowers, and sherbet. I think they are definitely new colorblock pals!

Daydream In Light Blue & Tangerine

Girl On Plane By Steven Chee | Bird Dress | Nail Polish | Orange Flower Arrangements | Ombre Cake | Groomsmen | Bed With Quilt

Since my slow and steady infatuation with this color palette, I’ve been noticing this pretty pop of a pairing that is light blue and tangerine everywhere I looked. It makes me feel all summery and tropical and that’s just the color therapy I need with our recent lack of sunshine!

Do you like light blue paired with tangerine?
