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!

Springkles.

Spring is a time for new beginnings. It's when all life wipes the sleep from blurry eyes and timidly steps into the sunlight to greet the world. Windows are swung open, bicycles are dusted off, birds fly home, coats are shrugged off, flowers bloom.

It's time for spring cleaning! I decided it wasn't enough to just redecorate and reorganize my house. I want to do the same for myself. This calls for a little personal spring cleaning. So I got a hair cut, bought some shoes I desperately needed, commissioned an updated blog theme, began reading an incredible fantasy series, decided on a new hobby and started exercising again.

It's been a long winter and I've been hibernating for far too long. It's time to open some windows in my mind, let in the fresh air and grow some satisfaction.

As the seasons change so do we. What was once painted with dirty greys and murky browns is now injected with splashes of emerald, gold and sapphire, violet, cherry and rose. Like sprinkles on a daintily frosted cupcake.

Whether you have a colourful personality, a colourful garden or a colourful living room, now you can have a cupcake to match. Rainbow sprinkles through and through with double cream cheese because, like sprinkles, you can never have enough.

Definitely not on the Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 meal plan, but Double Cream Cheese Funfetti Cupcake have my vote!
