Cheers: Party Drink Time!

Even though fall and winter season are coming upon us in the upcoming weeks I couldn't resist sharing this yummy drink, Riesling Strawberry Slushies via With Style and Grace.

PS: If you are allergic to strawberries like I am I still think this drink would be tasty with other fruits such as raspberries.

Friday's Party: Beach Wedding Affair

This Malibu beach wedding is simply stunning via Style Me Pretty
I love the nautical feel, the table decor especially and instead of a traditional guest book they used paddles.
Simply stunning.

My love for Macaroons

Besides a yummy cupcake I can't think of anything better than a macaroon and in a few weeks I will be reunited with visiting the 'Tiffanys of Macaroons' aka Laduree in NYC!

What I'm Loving This Week

I debated back and forth between some Halloween ideas and I decided Miss E is going to be a ghost for Halloween. Miss E will be participating in a Trick or Trunk at her daycare, will attend the Halloween parade at Mommy's school, and of course will be all dressed up to help pass out candy at home so I think she will be getting plenty of wear out of this costume.

Along with some black and white striped leggings from baby gap, here is what I'm loving/ envisioning to complete her costume.

LOVE this tutu from Tiaras Tutus. Hoping to have this made in black and white.
I heart this ghost tee from Musical Mandie which can also be made in a variety of colors or on an onesie. I plan on ordering in white.

and I heart this ghost clip from Violet's Velvet Box. I plan on clipping this onto a headband.

Birthday Party Craft

Over the weekend Miss E had a birthday party to attend for her friend Miss B who turned one years old!
Miss B's sweet mom asked me to bake cupcakes for the special occasion and I am slowly learning my way around illustrator so I thought I would share my first creation.

J.Crew Factory Finds

Last weekend I stopped in at our J.Crew Factory store and grabbed these finds

If you remember I showcased this cardigan a few weeks ago in my weekly What am I loving post
Good news. I scored this cardigan for $15! Umm, this was originally $70! Steal!
Simple navy and white tissue striped tee.
This will be perfect to wear for multiple seasons and will be fun to accessorize with a scarf or with gold jewelry.

I also bought a navy eyelet skirt (which can be paired with a variety of tops) and a
boatneck cotton tee.
The best part.... I scored all these pieces for under $100.00!

Do you ever shop outlet stores? If so, what is your favorite outlet factory store?
Mine is definitely J. Crew and Kate Spade factory store.
I have only been to the KS factory store in Orlando, Florida and I hope one will open near me soon!

Happy 2nd Birthday Cherry Blossoms!

It has been two years this weekend since I enter the world of blogging. I love all the inspiration that can be found in blog land, but most of all I have gotten to know some amazing bloggers. The whole purpose of me blogging is to share what I love and to pass on inspiration as so many others have passed onto me. For those of you who have been followers from the beginning, and those who have recently started following thank you so much for reading cherry blossoms, your sweet comments, but most of all
for inspiring me.
