I love French macarons although I have not eaten them in a while since I’m vegan. I decided to decorate with photos of macarons. This will have to do until I actually find a pastry shop with vegan macarons!


This was such an easy decorating project that added color to the kitchen!

The Chili made of black beans, onions, red pepper, garlic, and butternut squash.


Pumpkin bowls!!!

I just love the blue and pink office entrance!

Pink + Blue

Twin 1 decided to add a little more color to the apartment. I chose bold fun colors such as pink and blue. Honestly, I did not know this blue would turn out Carolina-Blue(ish) but it’s ok. If it were any lighter I would seriously have to repaint. I first painted the inside of the doorway pink. After letting the paint dry I painted the outside blue. I love these colors!

I hung these pictures as a simple decor project that brightens up the door entrance.

I’m sure my niece and nephews will enjoy the apartment when they visit. It’s very kid friendly in appearance 😉

This view gives you a better view of the study. I enjoyed this quick and fun painting project!

Twin 1 is trying to go vegan so decided to try this vegan avocado chocolate cake recipe found on  Joy the Baker’s website http://joythebaker.com/2009/07/vegan-chocolate-avocado-cake/

The cake was absolutely delicious. You can still see chunks of avocado in my icing however that did not affect the flavor.

Vegan avocado chocolate cake straight out of the oven!

Yes the icing contains avocado as well!!! I couldn’t stop tasting it. It was delicious!

Yeah I know-my icing is a bit lumpy. The next time I will spend more time mashing the avocado. However don’t let the lumpiness fool you-the cake was delicious!

My first slice….. I also had a second. 😉

I decided to do more decorating while Twin 2 was in town!

My beautiful nephew and niece (mini Twin)!

I bought these pre-cut pendants from Michael’s and hung them on ribbon. Mini Twin helped me organize them. This was a quick and easy decorating project!


Mini Twin, Twin 2, and Twin 1- I really enjoyed their visit!

I finally decided to finish decorating the study room! I love yellow so I have bursts of yellow in different areas. I have one more paper lantern to hang.






I have a lot of framed records so I’m trying to figure out where to put them all.
