Sparkles and Sunshine: Weekly Round Up

Weekly Round Up

Friday, October 12, 2018

Happy Friday!

So, I've always been known for either very corny or down right horrible jokes (in everyone else's opinion ha!). However, I think I've finally come up with an awesome one that should be shared world wide. Some may call it a dad joke, others may call it genius. I like to think it's both. Here is goes:

Why did the ghost quit Broadway? (See answer below)




He got a lot of BOOS!!!!!!!!! Hahahahahahaha!!!! 

I hope that gave you a little chuckle to start your weekend. 😊 For this week's round up blog post, I've added in a Halloween section since we're getting closer to this fun holiday!


Food:

Do you love looking at food on Instagram? I know I do! I just can't look when I'm hungry or else I'm in trouble haha! Bianca Zapatka is a German food blogger who share some of the most mouth watering photos and recipes! Also - her website is in German and English! When you click on the website link it most likely will be in German first thing. Go to a recipe and at the top of it it says: "this recipe is also available in English." Once you've done that the entire site is translated!

I never knew it was possible to make the most perfect looking waffle until I discovered Mei! Mei is a food blogger who shares plant-based meals that she makes for her family everyday! The recipe below is for Banana Spelt Waffles that are vegan and free of refined sugar. I doubt my waffles would look this good, but that's why she's the expert! Ha!

As most of you know, I'm not always a dessert person. However, I LOVE to look at desserts and watch dessert tv shows like Zumbo's Just Desserts. Which if you haven't seen that show you will LOVE it! It's so fun to watch someone be so creative with food! Anyways, I love to look at desserts because they're always so pretty and dainty. Magda Oatmeal Stories shares the prettiest desserts that almost look too good to eat. Chandler would definitely still eat them though. Ha! Check out her Instagram and blog below!

I recently discovered Jyo's account and I LOVE it! It's so fun and carefree which is definitely the inspiration I need sometimes! The post below is from the cutest outfit featuring a long velvet duster and a cute white polka dot bodysuit. The combo isn't one that I would normally think of together but it works so well!

I love all of the fun textures that comes with fall: corduroy, suede, etc. Alexa shared the cutest color block suede dress on her Instagram that is so fun! I even thought this could be used for a DIY Halloween costume for the 70's!
