Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes

Yes, you read that correctly. Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes! I am on the fence about this treat I came across today while browsing one of my favorite blogs, Cupcake Project. It looks just interesting enough to try but party of me doesn't think butter cream and chicken wings mix.

I {LOVE} Glitter!

I went to Michaels and finally bit the bullet and bought the Martha Stewart Glitter Glue Pens I've been drooling over for the past couple of months. So I walk over to the amazing Martha Stewart EVERYTHING display and there it is. My favorite thing in the world. A SALE sign! 40% off, yup I just said 40% OFF! So I snatched up that glitter and headed for the check out and drove like a mad woman home because I couldn't wait to play with my new glitter!

I've been swooning over these really cute ombre gillter nails on Pinterest and I knew this was my first glitter project I wanted to try.

The first thing I did was two coats of a base color. I chose a color called French Latte.

Next I picked a Copper becuase I thought it went well with French Latte.

I applied the glitter more intense towards the tips and lightly moved my way up. After the glue dried I applied two coats of a top coat and I was good to go! I just love this look.

Let me know what projects you would like to do with glitter!

Happy Glittering!

Oh. My. Gracious!

Holy cow it's been a long time since I've blogged! A lot has changed in the past couple of months. I got a new job, moved to Nashville, TN and had the pleasure of traveling to New Orleans to cheer on the Crimson Tide as they won their 14th National Championship! Whew, it's been an exhausting but incredibly exciting time for me!

As I get settled into my new hometown I will start blogging again. So excited to share my experiences with you!

Happy New Year!

**NOTE** I just realized after I published this post that TODAY January 25th is my 1 year Blogiversary!
