Eat Cake For Breakfast

Monday, August 25, 2014

Hey everybody! I hope your weekend was bliss. I want to share a couple of items I purchased: a journal & pair of mugs from Kate Spade's Eat Cake For Breakfast Collection. The journal has a beautiful pink cover and the words 'eat cake for breakfast' in gold, gold foil dots (see gif below) line the inner cover of the journal, it also has beautiful ribbon dividers and lined pages (I'm glad the pages are lined, because I don't write well with unlined pages hahaha). The mugs are pink & white with 'eat cake for breakfast' written in navy. The mugs are large, but very lightweight. I purchased some fresh flowers from Fresh Market this weekend. Fresh flowers always make me smile and I thought these pink roses were so beautiful. And finally, what's life without a little cake!?! I picked up a small chocolate cake from the bakery and the flowers atop were literally icing-on-the-cake cute. Wishing you all a lovely week ahead! May it be topped with delicious frosting :)

Look at how well your lippy matches those flowers! Such a cheerful pink post. You look incredible by the way, pink really suits you! :)


I didn't have cake for breakfast (I wish!) but the other day after grocery shopping I went out and treated myself to a slice of cheesecake. I've passed that store too many times and not indulged, it was overdue! I thought you'd approve :)

Oh Lordy, you have no idea how up my street this is. Cake for breakfast? That has been my diet for the past year or so! I'm trying to be a bit healthier now and doing bits and pieces to burn off the calories but never, ever will I give up cake! Hope you've been doing well, Kim. Rosemary x

The other day I ate tricolor spiral pasta with eggs on top with sauce for breakfast. I don't know what it was, but my body was screaming for it. LOL
Chocolate cake sounds equally amazing. Who could resist with such lovely Kate Spade accessories to compliment all that yummy chocolate?

I'm back to blogging! So happy.

This is such a cute collection, and you look beautiful with those pink roses. I think every girl should just be around bright fresh flowers all the time.
