Chocolate Cake Pops

Hey everyone! I've recently gotten obsessed with baking and have decided to try my hand in these super cute desserts! These cake pops are extremely easy to make and are yummy! So here's how I did it.

The cake was already made and I truly didn't like the taste of it at all. So I decided to crumble it up and pour out a scoup and a half of vanilla icing from Betty Crocker that I had into the crumbled cake pile.
  I mixed it up, first with a spoon then with my hands, until it was all combined.
After I rolled it into 7 little balls. (mind I only did this with a fairly large slice of cake and NOT the entire cake.)
After rolling them I sprayed baking spray on a plate and placed the cake pops on top. Also putting them in the freezer for 45 minutes. After there time was up I heated Bakers Chocolate and melted it in the microwave until it was easy to dip the pops. Instructions on the box.
I tried using toothpicks but it was a failed attemp since they kept falling out. I ended up just taking the toothpick out and covering it with chocolate.
Since the cake pops were cold the chocolate hardend very quickly and I served in just a few minutes! They were sweet and the chocolate was thick.

I can't wait to continue practicing my baking skills! Always loved it!

Major Haul!

Hey everyone! So I was just able to add a few things to my wardrobe bringing in a new style to my closet! I'm soo happy I was able to get these little pieces to incorporate to my already existing wardrobe! I love experimenting with daring articles of clothing and I think these are small projects that can add a lot to the whole outfit!
  If you guys haven't noticed in the beginning of the year I was obsessed with greys, blacks and more greys. Lots of longsleeves and ripped jeans. I guess you can say it was a grungy, edgy look I was going for but now I'm growing into a different style. I'm loving the button up blouses, the feminine french inspired puff sleeves and designs. I also love the pop of color and the light flowy fabrics! Here are a few new buys!

Forever 21 Longsleeve classy shirt: black and white thin stripes 
Claw Ring from Macy's
Forever 21 black and white stars button up
Forever 21 Red zipper jacket
Zara Aqua longsleeve button up
Creme silk button up tee from Khols
Forever 21 French Puff sleeve

What's your style? What have you been obsessing over??

New York: The Food

I can't help but love food! It's so good and tasty and sometimes beautiful! Here are a few pictures of the plates that we had over in New York!

I swear I had more than just cheeseburgers in NY! But didn't get a chance to snap a shot of everything! Maybe next time! Everyone has to try the Oreo Cake, I bought mine at Starbucks inside a Barnes and Noble. It must have been from the Cheesecake Factory they have been displayed lately.

A Visit to Gaga's Work Shop @ Barneys New York!

  OMG! I can't believe I went to Gaga's Workshop inside Barneys New York! AH! Best time ever, it was so Gaga and at the same time not enough! I have to admit I found everything to be super overpriced (seriously a lolipop for $25??) But I was able to but a special little item! Though I would have never paid $35 for it! I had to it was a little piece of Gaga and needed to have it in my wardrobe or else I would regret it!!
   Even though the opening was last week (can't believe I missed Gaga again! always happens!) The store was completely crowded and it was scorching hot! I went around twice and took pictures of most of the attractions! Let me know if you had a chance to visit! Enjoy the pictures!!
