Hidden Shapes
Via: Victorius Cupcakes
How cute are all these cupcakes (& Cake!). I love the hidden shapes in the cupcakes. All of these are baked twice. Which means you bake the batter that is going to create the desired shape first. Then bake that in the batter that will be the cupcake or cake. I haven't tried doing this yet, and I really want to! I'll probably do this sometime this week, and of course I'll let you guys know hoe it turns out!

Outfit Diary - New Hair

Thursday, September 27, 2012

So if you didn't notice I now have bangs and I darkened my hair.
This isn't the first time I've had bangs. I go back and forth with them. I though since it's fall, it would be fun! Having bangs in the hotter seasons is just plain annoying.

 Is there enough pink in these pictures? Anyway, I have been trying to fix my posts, because of all my pictures disappearing and I think I did it. I'm crossing my fingers! Besides that, I will be spending today looking for employment and fun stuff like that. I don't mind staying in today anyway, because the weather is crappy outside. But I can tell you that I'm SUPER Excited for The Big Bang Theory!!!! How has your week been going? Are you excited for any new seasons of your favorite shows?

I Think I'm Going to Cry

Wednesday, September 26, 2012


So as I was updating my blog, I got an error about pictures. This error took me to my Google+ account, which had all my pictures from random places including my blog. It said that I needed more space in order to add more pictures. So I deleted an album, not knowing that the two were connected! I thought whatever I posted on here stayed on here, not that it disappeared somewhere else. Google was also asking for a fee to buy more space in order to add more pictures to my blog. GRRRRRR.....anyway, I promise I will figure this out, until then I apologize for the black squares with lines in them. I guess I have to go back to a bunch of my posts and replace the pictures. If anyone knows anything about this....please share!

7 Questions

Yes I watch football, but I wasn't an Eagles fan originally. I never really had a team, but I married into this one. So Now I'm an Eagles fan and I have found that we Eagles fans hate to love them. I really have no worries, I mean really? I'm wearing the number of a player who's not on the team anymore.
The purpose of me sticking out my tongue is because I have a lot of friends that watch football and hate the raspberries I say!!!

1. Describe your perfect day.
There's so many things that can make the perfect day! Let's start with sunshine, and make it a nice 70 degrees out with a slight breeze. Let's also take this to the beach. I would also be there with my wife and kids. Playing in the waves and then grabbing some ice cream afterwards. Then coming home after being there all day, jumping into PJ's and watching a movie, something funny of course.

2.What was something that you were afraid of as a child?
Earthquakes!!!! I grew up in L.A. and I have lived through some pretty scary earthquakes. Even though I'm on East Coast now I still get startled if someone shakes my

3. What's something you're afraid of today?
Airplanes! That's right, I took it from the ground to the skies. The last time I flew back home I took 2 benadryl's and downed 2 Jack & coke's (I don't drink ever!) and my adrenaline was still able to fight through all of that and keep me wide awake and freaking out to every little bit of turbulence! It was a pretty smooth flight, but in my mind it was the end of world.

4. Would you rather be obsessed with yourself or someone else?
I like being obsessed with myself! haha Being obsessed with someone is is a little creepy, but I have to admit that I'm pretty obsessed with my wife too :)

5. What is a favorite restaurant that you could visit over and over and never get sick of?
PF Chang's totally!!! They have everything I love! From the appetizers to the desserts....yummy!

6. What is one food you used to hate but now enjoy? I can't get enough of it! I love it sooo much :)

7. Fill in the blank: Star   Fish .

Outfit Diary

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Isn't the fall starting out beautiful? I'm so excited! I have so many recipes that I want to try. Though lately I have really been craving cupcakes! Hopefully this weekend I can squeeze in some much needed baking time.  Today's dress is another favorite of mine. It's snug in all the right places, and hides everything else! The pretty brown color is perfect for fall and the beading is perfect. I also love that it has pockets! Is it me, or has anyone else noticed that girl clothes lack in the pocket department? Well I have and if I find clothes that have pockets, I'm a happy gal!

Pretty Little Details
Dress - Plato's closet (brand : Kimchi Blue)
Sweater - Thrifted
Tights  - Marshall's
Shoes - Thrifted (brand : Mia) 
Necklace & Earrings - Thrifted

I hope your having a great week!

Cupcake Sunday

Sunday, September 23, 2012


I hope you all have been having an awesome weekend! The weather has been beautiful here and we have finally finished unpacking! And besides cupcakes and all the moving stuff I have been talking about, I also wanted to share something else. Awhile ago my wife made this apron for me. It's my cupcake apron! So at least it goes with today's theme. She is quite the seamstress, but this was her first apron. I absolutely love it! I posted about it once before, but the lighting was horrible in the picture. Anyway, I love it so much, that I'm scared to wear it when I actually bake. I didn't show it in the picture but it ties around my neck and in the back.

Also, I was testing the space in my room to see if it would be okay for outfit shoots. I used 2 different camera's and found that in one position it cut part of my head off, and in these pictures I have no feet! I feel like it was an epic fail, what do you think? I also tried different lighting. A couple came out okay. But I'm not sure if I love this spot in front of my bookshelf.

I left my hair wispy...never again! I love my curls too much

 Every time I look at the above picture it just makes me laugh! I almost have a startled look, and it cracks me up. I made an example of a tacky photo setting. When I was going through my pictures I realized that the bookshelf was a little distracting and I didn't like my TV showing up either, so I'm going to see where else I can do indoor shoots. I've taken photography and I know when pictures aren't as good as they could be. It drives me nuts! Oh, well....back to the drawing board!

Have a great day!

A Peek Into My World

Friday, September 21, 2012

Can you tell where I was sitting? Oops!

Hello Mr. Kovu

My Pretty Petunia

My Cork Board & Corner Shelving

 Bookshelf & TV

  Cards & Post Cards from other blogger friends, family pictures, drawings from my daughter, etc.....that picture of the little girl in a purple, that's me in kindergarten and the other tiny picture with it, is my daughter's kindergarten picture.

 Your silly! 

 My mother-in-law's sewing machine, with all my knitting and crochet goodies. The rainbows are from a crystal hanging in the window.

 My Plants & Money Jars (on my wife's toy chest)

  My favorite Hello Kitties
 Kovu making a cameo..

Princess Cupcake at the top of the stairs...

So that is my bedroom, in a nut shell. It's nothing spectacular, but it's filled with bits & pieces of of me and my wife. That bedroom is actually the room my wife grew up in, which is kinda cute that we live in it now. In the first picture you can see a hanger with crochet on it hanging some dangles. I haven't made the second one yet, which will hang on the other side of the pink picture, but that is on the list of things to do. I'm not sure if you noticed, but the black cat is my wife's cat Kovu, and he was super curious about what I was doing. He was constantly trying to get in the pictures! He's such a sweetheart. Anyway, there's still more things I want to put up, like my sculptures, but I haven't gotten to that yet...soon, I hope! I hope you all have had a great week! I'm so glad it's Friday...
Have a great weekend!

7 Questions

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

It's that time again!
7 ?'s with Gentri Lee

So here is my silly picture. I made those famous duck lips and I'm not sure what my daughter is doing, but it's funny! It was nice to take take a break from unpacking...what a surprise? right!? Hopefully I can get some pictures up and tell you guys all about this crazy adventure were on.

1. Do you ever have reoccurring dreams?

I have never had a reoccurring dream, but I've had some really cool things happen. I was a secret agent on a crazy mission. I was one of the survivors of the Apocalypse. I also spoke to some higher power/God type spirit once, that dream was awesome! I've also died twice.

2. It's the first day of Fall (or Spring for you southern hemispherers) in a few days, what are you looking forward to most?
Everything pumpkin flavored!!! I can't wait to have pumpkin bread, pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin ice cream and pumpkin spice coffee!

3. Because a lack of coordination, would you rather not be able to tie your shoes or cut your own food?
Cut my own food, you can at least tear it with your teeth or hands. I don't want to be tripping all over the place!

4. Would you rather live in a house made entirely of glass or a house with no windows?
I'm claustrophobic so I would have to live in a glass house. I have no shame, so it wouldn't bother

5. Would you rather walk on you toes or heels forever?
My toes? At least I would seem taller that way.

6. What's your favorite sense? (you have 5 btw)
My sight, I love seeing and looking at everything. My a.d.d. doesn't help though.

7. What's your favorite movie quote of all time?
Dory: Uhhh... the sea monkeys have my money... yes, I'm a natural blue...  
Dory: Hey, look. "Esc-a-pay". I wonder what that means? That's funny, it's spelled just like the word "escape."

Is that picture random? Well yes it is...but I think it's funny because a lot of people call me princess and I thought that picture was cute :) I hope everyone is having a great week! Oh! Gotta go...squirrel! Climbing up the tree out of my window!

Strawberry Jane

Monday, September 17, 2012

Hey everyone! So, as you can imagine I have been super busy unpacking and getting things sorted and settled. Our move has been pretty exhausting, and so worth it! But more on that we are here to talk about Jane...and I'll let her take it from here....

Hello, everyone!
I'm Jane from ddalkijane.
I'm so honored to do the guest post for Eeka :)

I draw a doodle called "ddalki diary" on my blog daily.
Ddalki means strawberry in Korean.
Ddalki diary expresses my daily life.
I'm from Korea and it's still hard for me to express my feelings in English, even though I've been in the US for 11 years.
The red hair girl is me. The monkey is my husband. The orange tabby cat is our cat, Gamja which means potato in Korean.

Here are some of my favorite ddalki diaries.

If you want to see more, please visit me.

Thank you!


Thank you Jane! I love all your pictures and animations, they are all so cute! I hope you guys can stop by Jane's blog and say hello. She has so many fun posts and I always like to see what Gamja has been up to.

Well, I need to get back to the unpacking!

How has your week been?
