I will be making my Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cream Pies this weekend to take to my cousin's Easter potluck brunch.
And you best believe I will be using this amaze-balls tip I found for my frosting piping bag.
Check it out in this video:
In the past, I have brought these other desserts that have gone over well, too!

In other news, and confessing my cat lady status, I have a nice little balcony patio now that
So if you browse my recent Pinterest pins, and see a lot of catnip, and other cat grasses, like barley and wheat grass that's the reason!
But the wheat grass caught my eye, because I could use it, too (if I had a juicer). And it looks so pretty when I see it in Jamba Juice!

There are so many succulents and other plants that can be harmful to pets if eaten, and knowing my dumb cat, she'd try to eat them all!
So, I am on a mission!
I have also been obsessed with learning all about all natural face cleansing ideas, like oil cleansing.

The Oil Cleansing Method: 100% Natural Moisturizing Face Cleanser
From Our Homemade Happiness: "Yeah, you heard me right. I wash my face with oil. Sound like an oxymoron? Here's how it works: like dissolves like. The clean oil dissolves the dirty oil from your face, all without stripping your skin's natural protective oils."
So fascinating, right?! I am intrigued!
OK, and I use this body wash all the time after the gym, and now we supposedly can use a similar oil cleansing method instead, for that, too??

Another resource I've found:
Natural Makeup Remover - from Crunchy Betty
Also on the All Natural kick, I am loathing marshmallows lately for the gross non-vegan gelatin they use (more like a love/hate relationship, because I do really like marshmallows...hmph.), so I wanted to pick up one of these to use in my canister of brown sugar.
I WAS using a marshmallow, like I saw on Pinterest, to keep my container of brown sugar nice and soft. It works great!
But for the more vegan-friendly (Do you KNOW what gelatin is?...yeah. Google that shit...yikes.),
these terra cotta disks soaked in water say they work as a great alternative! Win!
And finally, Boom! Cocktail hour!
Dreaming of Summer!
These look delish! So pretty, too!
The Black Swan cocktail: vodka lemonade with muddled blackberries. yes, please.
Blueberry Lavender Mojito: ah-mazing! I have been dying to buy some lavender syrup to bake with, and use in cocktails like this!
On that note, Cheers!
