Fall Accessory Craze...

Sadly it's almost the end of summer while it was good while it lasted, I'm secretly excited for the upcoming fall season. Fall is one of my favorite season, second to summer of course. The smell of pumpkin brings me the most absolute joy! Time to hide those TB Thoras and bring out the Revas!

Fall seasons means layers and layers, not just with blouses but with accessories!!! I'm currently loving everything from Belle Noel (inspired by Kim K's jewelry line), Jcrew, House of Harlow, Bloomies Aqua and even Forever 21! I have a few pieces already and just ordered a few more online and can't wait to get my hands on them...

Best things in life

I was inspired by reading LC's blog about the best things in her life, and I love reading these little things that makes other people happy. So why not make a list of mine... =)

1. Waking up next to my two loves (hubby and son for those who don't know me personally) hehe
2. Finding fabulous sales and when you get to the register it's marked off even more
3. Fall season which means yummy Starbucks lattes and the smell of pumpkin goodies
4. Laughing till you cry and almost peeing in your pants LOL
5. Tapioca Express (boba drink) on a hot day
6. Catching up on The Real Housewives or my reality shows while the baby is finally off to bed (guilty pleasure)
7. The sound of rain when you're tucked in bed
8. Sprinkles cupcakes
9. Reaching your destination on the plane for a paradise vacay
10. When family gets together right before a big party you're planning

Sweetest obsession

For anyone who knows me, knows that I have a huge obsession for all things sweet, thus my love for baking. I have the sweetest palette and my weight definitely shows that! LOL Sorry but I always leave room for dessert no matter how full I am. I have the biggest sweet tooth and I guess you can say that's why I have the biggest passion for baking and designing dessert bars. I would love to share my absolute favorite desserts with you so you can see what my obsession is all about. Enjoy!

1. Sprinkles Cupcake - My ALL time favorite cupcakes. I can live off these babies, it's worth the hype and then some. You gotta try the banana, red velvet and mocha! Beyond scrumptious!
2. Molly Moon's of Seattle, WA - Coffee and maple walnut had us coming back for more! Literally... twice in one day!
3. Paulette's Macarons in Beverly Hills, CA - I'm so sad that the one in SF is no longer Paulette. They had the best chocolate, pistachio & raspberry just to name a few. $20 for a dozen sounds pricey but every bite is worth it.
4. Peter's Bakery in San Jose, CA - My favorite cake hands down. Light and not too sweet.
5. Anthony's Cookies in SF, CA - I haven't tried a cookie that wasn't good. LOVE this place!
6. Waoila Shave Ice in Oahu, HI - I can't get over how refreshing their azuki bowl is. I searched far and wide in Ca for something similar but nothing comes close.
7. Tapioca Express in Union City, CA - My absolute favorite of them all. No matter how cold or how hot the weather is, I'm always down for a milk tea boba. It doesn't hurt that it's only a couple of minutes away. =)

I moved again...

For the third time in my blogging experience, I decided to change my blog name. I promise this will be the last time. My first name was A Sugary Soiree but had to change that because we were in the process of creating a little business which almost had the same name. So I had to come up with something quick for my blog and decided on Charms and Cupcakes which never really stuck on me. I have now come up with something very simple and definitely something I can stick with. I came up with my Twitter name.. Love Lissie. Simply me. For my followers, please follow me here...

Terrible nights...

The past two nights has been awful for the hubs and I. My 17 month old has not been feeling himself needless to say he's been feeling horrible. He's been waking up from a cough and congestion and been uncontrollably crying. The night before, he even vomited all over himself, it was not a pretty sight. My eye bags are probably in full effect as I type!

Last night was even worse, he woke up and cried and coughed his lungs out. We tried everything to calm him down but it seemed like he would get aggravated even more. At one point, he was even pretending to cough to get our attention and of course crying at the same time. To calm him down my Hubby turned on the TV and put on his favorite shows (we tried everything and even giving him a bottle so this was the last resort, don't judge us lol). Well big mistake, while it definitely stopped him from crying but he never went back to sleep. Two hours later, I woke up hearing the TV noises I asked my Hubby to shut the TV off and put this little munchkin to sleep!

Hopefully tonight will be a little better for us. Crossing my fingers!

New post... new look

OMG, it's been 3 months since the last time I posted. I'm such a terrible blogger. I apologize to my readers IF I still have some left. LOL As you may have noticed, my blog has a new look. My amazing little sister designed it just for me... maybe giving me a hint to update my blog. Well it worked! I'm updating as we speak! Since my absence to the blogging world, so much things to share. So HOPEFULLY I can start blogging on a daily (crossing my fingers that I don't get lazy). Here are a few things I plan to update with you all:

Hawaii vacation/Sissy's amazing wedding
1.5 Year old being happy as can be
Out with the old, in with the new home
Process of designing my bedroom
New recipes
pictures, pictures & more pictures

So stay tuned...
