FOOD | Easter Egg Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes for Easter!

The Cupcakes
Box mix for white cake with fluffy white frosting on top. Yum! For the pastel green frosting I mixed about 1/3 of a packet of Duncan Hines Frosting Creations in Mint Chocolate chip. It made the frosting very smooth and soft from all the stirring. 

I was going to use coconut shavings for the nests but changed my mind and used Baker's semi-sweet chocolate instead and chopped them up into little slivers. The white cupcakes have a sprinkle of coconut shavings. The eggs are solid milk  chocolate Cadbury Mini Eggs. I was looking for malted milk eggs but I couldn't find any at my Target. I think the malted eggs would taste better because whatever dye Cadbury used for the shell does not taste that great.

NC Trip Pictures

Tony and I went up to NC for a couple days to get some work done while visiting family and friends. We couldn't push it back any further and really needed to make time for that. I believe it keeps you well grounded. Time flew by so fast! That's why I didn't make any videos this week or put up any posts on my blog. I did go shopping though so expect a lil haul soon before my spring makeup tutorial!

Mamabear and I. Yes, she is shorter than me!

I wanted to do a natural smokey eye with a pop of color and a hint of glitter. I love glitter. 
You can't forget the glitter!

A lil update! Last month was my birthday month sooo I was having fun the whole time getting spoiled. It's also a week away from Valentine's day so I got some extra lovin haha. It was an expensive month going out to eat often and I shopped A LOT more than usual. I didn't even post the things I bought but I wanted to share some lil tid bits! Hauling is another post! 

I came home one night from work to this.

REVIEW | Revlon Nail Art Moon Candy Swatches

These are all flakie polishes. Not meaning that they flake off your nail or anything but that the top coat gives a "flake" effect. To me they look like crystals or stones with all the edges and have a beautiful holographic effect.

TASTY TRAVELS | Marietta Diner

306 Cobb Parkway
Marietta, GA 30060
Open 24/7

As Seen On Food Network 

Looks like a big 'ol shiny metallic diner from the outside and turns into the fanciest diner I've ever been to on the inside. The whole atmosphere changes. All the waiters and waitresses are uniformed, they ask you if you would like a booth or a table, the whole sha-bang! Diners are usually simple family owned businesses with homemade recipes. Maybe back in the day it was but Marietta Diner definitely is not that anymore. Being featured on Food Network's Diners, Dive-Ins and Dives did this diner a huge boost in business, I'm sure. I'm glad for them and I love that they used the money to good use because the place is lovely, the staff is nice, and they DO NOT skimp on their foods one bit! You get twice as much as you paid for. I've been to some diners, not too many, and this one is quite impressive. I want to go back there again and again til I have a taste of some more of their foods! Their menu is never ending and their desserts alone are good enough a reason to come here. 

-Spanakopita (Greek spinach pie) 
-A bbq burger (it's not on their online menu)
-Greek salad
-Onion rings
-Chicken Noodle Soup
-2 coffees
-Cannoli cake
-Tres Leches White cake

Our total was roughly $22 before coffee and cake.

Everything was delicious but we had to put it away to make room for dessert!
They have cakes, pies, cookies, pastries, tarts, milkshakes, and cheesecakes. 
Can you say variety?


The cakes are a little over $7 a slice and every penny is worth it.
Marietta Diner puts Cheesecake Factory to shame in price, taste, and quality.
I ate my cake for 2 days. 

I didn't eat a single thing that I did not love. I'm afraid I might get addicted to their sweets because I want to try them all! Like I mentioned earlier you get MORE than you paid for. The portions were HUGE. My Greek dish was only a little over $10 and the spinach pie was bigger than my hand. We were both able to take home food and have enough for another meal. They are open all day everyday and serve breakfast foods all day. Their menu has Italian, Seafood, and Greek from what I saw. The price isn't bad either and naturally they go up for seafood. If you are in the area or are driving by, I would highly recommend you stop and try this place out!
