Ninja Peaches.

I'd like to tell you a funny story or wax poetic about sunsets, but honestly I just don't have the time. You were probably going to skip all the words and go straight to the pretty pictures anyway.

Weren't you?

So, much like a ninja with a smoke bomb, here are some yummy pictures of cupcakes to distract you while I make my swift exit.

Poof!

Smart Cookie.

I'm one of those rare people who not only tolerates wearing glasses, but actually loves it. I always envied people with glasses so when the day came that I was told I have a slight astigmatism I was over the moon! Now they're my favourite accessory and I'm always looking for new styles to suit my outfit, hair or just my mood.

So imagine my excitement when the lovely folks at Firmoo Eyewear generously offered me a free pair of glasses! Naturally it took me days to decide which pair I wanted because they have a huge selection and their “virtual try on” feature is way too much fun. When I finally got it narrowed it down to two styles, I realized I couldn't live without either of them.

The first are tortoiseshell wayfarers. I love them because the brown and gold flecks accent my eyes and hair. The second are black Ray Ban look-alikes. They're more rectangular and have a hint of cat-eye flare. Big, bold geek-chic glasses seem to be pretty trendy right now, and I love them because your eyes and makeup are enhanced instead of hidden.

The really great thing about Firmoo is anyone can get a free pair of glasses! They have this super cool program where first time buyers get their glasses for free just for giving Firmoo a try.

I was so inspired by my new specs, that I made you some “smart cookies”! I just traced my glasses onto a piece of thin cardboard and cut it out to use as a stencil. You could trace your own glasses too and celebrate being a part of the smart cookie club!

Now if only I could only find some rainbow sprinkle frames to coordinate with my cookies I'd be complete!

Pink Lemonade.

I know, it's hot outside. I should be making ice cream, or popsicles, or lemonade. The last thing I should be doing is turning on the oven. But what if I made the doughnut version of lemonade? And what if I told you they only take five minutes to bake?

You'd forgive me right?

I thought so.

Not just any lemonade either. Cherry Lemonade. You'll find no boring old lemonade in this house. Actually you'll find no lemonade. Because I drank and/or ate it all.

I'm not sure what it is about lemonade that's just so undeniably refreshing. Maybe it's because it's best to drink it super cold with loads of ice cubes. Maybe it's because of that satisfying crack noise the ice makes when you drop each inside. Maybe it's because of those beads of condensation that form on the outside of the glass that make it all so inviting. Maybe it's because of the bendy straw you just have to drink it from so you don't get ice in your face every time you take a sip or because it's lemonade and it's wrong not to. Maybe it's because of that instinct you get to drink it on the porch since it's the closest you can get to lounging on a sunny beach somewhere with a floppy hat and oversized sunglasses.

Maybe it's a combination.

I always enjoy taking an classic recipe and mixing it up a bit. What could be more classic than lemonade? It's the new and improved pink lemonade! This version is just as refreshing, twice addictive and thrice adorable. Being that they're bite-sized they tend to disappear quickly. Get some before they're gone!
