Cupcake Queens

April 23, 2008
If you ever want to bribe me, just offer me one of two things- B or C (or both if you want to be my favorite person in the world):

 

B)loomingdales
C)upcakes

 

But I have to say the latter is a sweet treat I can’t ever seem to resist. What cures a hangover, brings sunshine into your day, is better than having a slice of cake and will make you glow with happiness afterwards? Yep, I’m talking cupcakes. The sweet little morsels deserve to be sought after and they bring me joy. No, seriously. They do bring me joy.

 

The new trend of cupcake “boutiques” is just fabulous. For roughly $3 you can get a delicious cupcake that is entirely more deserving of your money than an iced coffee or scoop of ice cream. Here in San Francisco we have several good ones from which you can choose. I love That Takes the Cake red velvet (seriously it is so delicious) and Kara’s Cupcakes sweet vanilla will change your idea of “vanilla” forever. Citizen Cupcake and Miette offer sweet treats that can satisfy when shopping in Union Square or enjoying the sun at the Ferry Building.

 

What’s best about these treats? They are pretty much designed to never disappoint. So make a cupcake date as soon as you can. And get an extra for me and I’ll love you forever.

Trend Alert: Yellow

February 20, 2007

There isn’t a better way to get yourself out of the winter blues than adding a most fabulously fresh color to your wardrobe! Yellow is the new color to be sporting. And while it may not be Spring just yet, who says you can’t make it feel like it is?

Your best bets for wearing yellow (all available at Nordstrom):

Shoes: Paired with a casual outfit of jeans and a complimentary tank and jacket

Dress: Yellow can guarantee a few extra jealousy stares when you show up in this fresh of a color.

Bag: Don’t keep using the same dark leather bag you’ve had all through Fall and Winter, grab a bag entirely or accented with yellow and use your new accessory as a way to brighten your mood all through the day.
