Thrift Finds

O.K. ya’ll, this past Saturday I headed on over to Flamingo Plaza, my usual thrift store stop. Here are some of some of the cool stuff I came across…

Shelves full of cool treasures that you can repaint and repurpose. I had a hard time not throwing everything into my basket.

This Christian Dior full length jackt was only $50 and was in amazing condition…but it wasn’t in my budget :/

I love shells (I love anything ocean) and I love shiny metals…so as you can imagine I had a hard time putting this down.

…and this little metal round beauty…I regret not getting it 😦

These cameras were so cool. I almost got one with the idea of spray painting it a bright bold color.

…and speaking of bright bold colors, look at this amazing print! I wish I could put it on the beautiful chairs below.

These were in great condition and there were two. If I had my own home I would’ve bought them and reupholstered them…maybe in chevron print :-/

Now, what I DID get was the following:

I plan to use these cups as vases for my flowers. The blue cups were 6 for $0.97 (weird price) and the two golden ones were originally from Pier 1 (sticker was still on). The cute little puppy I plan to repaint (pictures to come).

I also got a brand new pair of Mango jeans and J.Crew jeans. I scored a really cool red fancy shirt (pictures to come once I figure out how to style it) and this awesome sexy see through skirt (perfect for Miami pool parties)

…and finally this super cute double ring. I was lucky that it fit me since I have a very small ring size.

I can’t wait to post pictures of the puppy before and after.

OK, lovies…talk laters!

Sweet and Tipsy

Last night I attended a friend’s dinner party and was introduced the sweetest concoction that left me wondering if I was going to engage in regrettable behavior by the end of the night (and I’m not talking about breaking my diet…those cupcakes were worth it). Yes, I had alcohol flavored cupcakes!! The company is called Sweet and Tipsy Cupcakes.

The owner is the very stylish Veronica Hurtado and she bravely walked away from a steady paycheck to pursue her love and passion.  She is an inspiration!

At the moment Sweet and Tipsy Cupcakes is a home-based business only making local deliveries throughout South Florida. An order consists of a minimum of one dozen mini-cupcakes per flavor @ $20/box and only 24-48 hr advance notice is needed. This  means you can satisfy your craving by the weekend.

I think a box of specialty cupcakes is an amazing and unique gift that will be loved by all, men and women. There are so many flavors to choose from like :

Lazy Niña Colada
Ay Mi Amorcito Mojito
Miami Vice
Cuba Libre
White Russian Revolt
Eye Of The Hurricane
But she has even more flavors which you can check out by going to the official Sweet and Tipsy facebook page.

All of the cupcakes look delicious and so very stylish…it’s almost a shame to eat them but who can resist….not me!

CHAMPAGNE KISSES

Strawberry cake infused with rosé champagne, topped with a strawberry champagne buttercream frosting & drizzled with chocolate ganache.

AY MI AMORCITO MOJITO

Mojito cake infused with captain morgan’s rum, topped with a rum & lime zest syrup & a lime cream cheese frosting.

So don’t hesitate…indulge today 😉

Summer is coming!! …well at least in Miami it’s pretty darn close. Summer means longer days to ride bike and explore beautiful homes around my neighborhood. Summer means fun DIY weekends and relaxing afternoons. I can’t wait!
