Now that June is here, my mind is totally in Summer mode (even though I feel like we barely had a Spring??) So what better way to share some Summer treats than with a round up of pretty ice cream? Nothing says Summer more than ice cream. So enjoy a sweet summer treat:
1 | Birthday Ice Cream Cake // Sweetapolita
2 | Raspberry Coconut Milk Ice Cream // Baking Magique
3 | Chai Ginger Ice Cream Sandwiches // Minimalist Baker
4 | PMS Ice Cream Concept // The Dieline
5 | Ice Cream Sandwiches // Pass the Sushi
6 | Japanese Desserts // The Road Forks
7 | Purple Ice Cream // Cereal Magazine
8 | Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream // Hungry Girl Porvida
9 | Raspberry Coconut Ice Cream // Minimalist Baker
Personally, I’m a big fan of black raspberry ice cream, though classic vanilla with rainbow sprinkles will always be a favorite. What’s your favorite ice cream?
I’m so excited to share with you my latest costume, Princess Peach! I made her Amiibo dress for PAX East 2016. I actually made a different Peach for last year’s PAX – but I cut it short into a cocktail dress because my skills just weren’t there yet.
If you told me a year ago that I would be able to create her gorgeous ball gown, I wouldn’t have believed you. That just goes to show that the more you practice and create, the better you’ll get! I need to remember this little fact a lot more in life.
Click under the cut for a full walkthrough (with photos!) on how I made this costume:
I’m totally loving all this warm weather I’ve been having recently, and it’s just making me crave outdoor picnics and farmers markets. Who else is ready for that?
Flamingo Lamp | “Beets Rain” Photographic Print
The flamingo lamp is so much fun – imagine bringing that out at a party! Talk about interesting lightning. The girl who owns that would definitely hang that funky beets print in her kitchen, or any room really – I love how vibrant and unique it is.
Where would you put these items in your home?
I’ve shared my Noragami love before, and I really am a huge fan, so making this Hiyori costume was like a dream. I (foolishly) thought it would be easy to make (hint: it wasn’t), but I ended up learning a few techniques along the way!
These were all taken at Anime Boston 2016.
Continue on for details on how I made the costume.
Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone! I wanted to use the day as an opportunity to draw a fun skull :> I’m currently sitting at home sick with a cold, but will be going to a local block party this weekend for Cinco de Mayo. Hopefully it will be sunny and warm!
Are you doing anything fun today?
