The Sweet Escape
Meg Says Hello
The Proper Pinwheel
Alt Summit is just shy of a month away, and I’m starting to stress about business cards!
If you’re familiar with Alt, you’ll know that first off, business cards aren’t just business cards, and they are a big deal. I was trying to explain it to my brother and he was asking what size the business cards are. My response: “Size? I think you mean what shape. Or if its 2D or 3D. Or if it’s even a card at all”.
You never know what little delight will be passed from hand to hand at Alt!
I have quite a lot of cards left over from last year (can you spot them in 2 photos above?), so I have to be totally lame and reuse my cards, which is possibly the biggest faux pas anyone can make at Alt. But! I have other plans for them, and while they aren’t cemented yet, I’m hoping it will be kinda rad.
But if any of you have suggestions you wanna throw my way, I’m all ears.
Heck if you wanna make them for me that’s cool too. Ya know, just putting it out there.
Will you be attending Alt in June? I’d love to meet you!
I’m a huge cupcake fan and red velvet is my absolute favourite
. There’s something about that hint of cocoa and deep crimson colour that makes it an absolute delectable delight. I love it even more around this time of year, because who can resist a red velvet cupcake that is so perfectly suited to Valentine’s day?
Now, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I used to be an awful
baker. No matter what I did something went wrong – especially with the seemingly fool-proof packaged cakes. The egg somehow always settled, leaving a nasty omelette crust on the bottom of a chocolate cake. Yes. Gross.
It wasn’t until I became vegan that baking and I got along. With the threat of omelette based cakes gone, I was able to make baked goods that tasted not only good, but amazing enough for vegans and non vegans alike to devour.
Pop on over to Wayfair today to get the recipe and learn how to get that piped rose icing that’s perfect for Valentine’s day.
Have you tried vegan baked goods before? What’s your opinion?

It’s coming whether you like it or not – this weekend marks the beginning of fall.
While summer is my favourite season, I always look forward to the coziness fall brings. I just love the turning of the leaves, warm bubbling soups and the smell of pumpkins being carved and baked.
What’s your favourite part about autumn and what are
your plans for this equinox weekend?

If you’re an 80′s child like me, this week’s Friday Five may have just forced a smile to creep out of that pretty little face of yours. Yup, I’m taking you back to the days of bright colours, inspirational hero rock singers, music that you had to fast forward and rewind, and the dawn of the computer age.
Welcome back to the 80′s friends. And,have a lovely weekend!
