I Am Only Capable of Making Sugary Things...

     I forgot to put up some photos of some food I've made in the last few months. Not super exciting, but I need a more concrete theme to blog about. But hey, five subscribers. Better than when I started.

     I did mini chocolate bundts with vanilla yogurt and strawberries, jam tarts and pockets with blackberry and strawberry jam, and raspberry tartlets with raspberry creme. These are spaced apart a bit, time wise. Sorry, but I don't remember where I got most of the recipes. But I encourage you all to start baking more and to get creative. Summer is coming, but for us Goths/Nerds/Freaks, it's time for our imaginations to run wild! (Now someone please slap me for how horribly cliche I just was.)

Product Reviews Are Pretty Fun

     Okay, so back with some more product reviews and a little show and tell. I recently purchased Sally Hansen's Salon Effects nail polish strips in Laced Up. It's got this cute little flower lace print on a cream colored background.

     They are fairly easy to apply. You just peel off the stickers and place the strips on your nails, lining them up with the cuticles. Then you file/rip the excess off. I like the fact that each strip has a different part of the lacy design, some with leaves, some with flowers. But there's too much packaging and it's kind of expensive. I paid $8.95 for this. They flake off pretty easily and I even used a protective top coat. My verdict: these are fun for an evening, but they could stay on longer.
     On to more purchases I made today. I bought some patterns from Simplicity, like their two new Victorian dress patterns and Butterick's glove pattern. (Oh the things you will find if you just look in the costume section.) So...Yup. Pretty good day. Except I have a cold. But I'm beginning to think that everyone perpetually has colds. Go do something productive.
