Cupcakes, Makeup, & A New Outfit!!


Cupcakes, Makeup, & A New Outfit!!


Happy Saturday Dolls, the Dessert Diva is back with some super sweet treats from a great little spot called Fresh Bakery!! They're in a shopping center located at 10351 Reisterstown Rd, in Owings Mills MD 21117. I just love their adorable square cupcakes, boy are they good. 
Cupcake listed as shown in the image above. There are four fabulous flavors.
Top left: Outerbanks (chocolate on chocolate).
Top right: Key Lime.
Bottom left: Raspberry lemonade (my fave)
Bottom right: Nantucket (vanilla on vanilla)

The bottom left was my favorite, only because raspberry is my absolute fave. Plus it had a yummy lemon twang that gave it a fantastic flavor profile. The cake was super moist and full of flavor, but not overbearing so it paired perfectly with the super sweet icing. I really loved their fresh flavors, and can definitely say I'll be going back for more. They also deliver, so I can see myself getting chubby this winter season...lol!!


They also make cakes for weddings and special occasions, but I think I have a cake that is gonna blow you guys away!! This is the cutest cake I have seen all year, I definitely can't wait to hear what you guys think. Have you ever seen a cooler cake? Unicorns are definitely one of my big loves and they're also super popular right now. What gal doesn't love a unicorn, especially when it's covered in icing flowers!! If you look at the 2nd image, you'll see how they created a mane of flowers.


 They used pink and yellow roses, with little blue pearl centered filler flowers.  Then if that wasn't awesome enough, as you move your eyes a little bit you'll see that they added glitter so that the flowers sparkle. I just couldn't think of a more awesome idea, though I should have asked her if the horn and ears were edible....lol!! I can see myself getting one of these for my next party.  Then they added a dripping effect with the tiny candy dots at the bottom, boy did they knock this one out of the park. Hmmm.. I wonder what cake flavor I would get....chocolate, vanilla, or something crazy like that birthday cake mix that has the little multi colored dots inside. That way it would be just as colorful inside as outside. What do you think, what flavor cake would you go with?


Now thats enough about sweets, I better get off the subject before I am on my way back to Fresh Bakery for some more...lol! I want to share a cute new outfit that I got with you guys. I really love the embroidery trend that's super popular right now, so I scooped a couple of cute pieces. The top came from American Eagle Outfitters and the shorts I got from Amazon. The roses aren't exact but I think they're close enough. I decided to sport my white Micheal Kors sandals and vanilla crossbody bag set to finish it off. I really love the white color for the summer season, especially with a white top such as this one. All together this outfit (shorts and tank top) costs me $40 bucks, so I'm pretty proud of myself. A sale is one thing I just can't pass up...lol!! Do you think the embroidered roses are to far off, or they go together good? I have been looking all over for shorts with the embroidered roses and these were the only ones I could find in my size, that were really cute. If you know a place were I can find a pair, please let me know below in the comments, because it's really been a task. 


I really like the destroyed denim, though I do wish they were a little bit longer. Either way they're super cute, and in the meantime I'll just keep on looking. I hope to score a cute pair of jeans for fall and winter with a good embroidery design. Have you seen the new embroidered Gucci jeans...omg are they gorgeous. I wish more than anything that I could afford them, but $1200 dollars for a pair of jeans is a bit out of my price range, so I'll try to find the next best thing. 


This adorable top is made of the softest cotton and feels amazing on my skin, this is what convinced me to buy it about 2 months ago, that and it was on sale. I just got lucky that it matched the shorts really well. Don't you love it when that happens? AEO always has cute tops, it's one of my favorite spots to schmy around when I go into the mall because I always find something cute at a good price. 





Last but certainly not least I added this little beauty to the outfit. It's a Welly Merck watch and it's gorgeous, not to mention it has a classic look in gold that matches just about anything. It's goes especially well with the pink embroidered roses on my outfit. The face is so feminine and chic, it has quickly become my favorite watch. To get one of your own check out the Welly Merck Website  and use the code DANAWM20 at checkout and get 20% off of your order. You can't beat that, especially when it comes to such a beautiful time piece. 



I also have a great beauty product to share, as well as a shot of a yummy meal I put together this morning. I call it my famous Southwest Grits and wow is it good. It's so easy to make that anyone can do it. Just make yourself a nice bed of grits, with fresh roughly chopped cilantro mixed in. Then top it with a mound of black beans, and garnish it with tomatoes, green onion, cheese (mozzarella or feta will work) and top it with a fried egg or two. Make sure you have a runny yolk, because this adds an amazing flavor to the grits and fresh veggies. Make sure you cut all of the garnishings and have them ready because you want to eat it while it's all still hot hot!! It tastes best that way.


Then I washed it all down with a fresh glass of OJ, nothing is better for breakfast. Notice that the Raspberry lemonade cup cake from Fresh Bakery is making an appearance again here...boy was it good!! Then also making an appearance is the newest beauty product in my daily routine, it's a loose powder by Lancome called Translucence. As most of you that follow my Instagram page know, most of the beauty products I use are made by Lancome, because they're quality products that I can feel good about buying. This loose powder is fantastic. I can wear it and get great coverage without feeling like I'm wearing a ton of makeup on my face. There's nothing i hate more than my skin feeling all caked up, and this powder is weightless on my skin. I like to sport the natural look and Translucence let's me do that with confidence. I definitely recommend you give it a go, you won't regret it!!




To see the review video on Translucence just check out my Instagram page. 
I received the Translucence free of charge from Lancome, and all opinions are 100% mine and mine alone!! #honestreview #gifted #octolyfamily. To get some of your own check out Octoly
