Get the Gossip; Healthy Cupcakes, Fall Nail Trends, Hot Air Balloons and more...

So, how is everyone this week? Enjoying your summer? I know I am! Here are my favorite finds of the week;

Super good news for all of your american kids- Congress thinks that cupcakes are healthy?! congress wants to add cupcakes to school lunch lines, fighting against Barak Obama's pursuit to make lunches healthier. A new bill would allow any cupcake, regardless of fat content, to be counted as a vegetable, as long as it has a small sprinkling of dried greens on top of the frosting! Could this be happening in the near future, especially when the election is only 3 months away in November? Recpie for this green sprinkled 'vegetable' cupcake can be found here. 

Here's a cool idea; why don't you turn a few old beer bottles (washed out, of course) into a pretty light display? This idea simply requires you to drill a whole near the base of a beer bottle, and poke a section of fairy lights inside. then continue this into a few more beer bottles, until you have a glowing display. You could even try this idea with a more interesting bottle, for example a funky shaped port bottle, or a pretty coloured wine bottle, if you liked original the idea.

As Autumn is fast approaching, my hopefulness for an Indian summer is ever growing. However, whatever the weather, i am totally looking forward to enjoying wearing this seasons hottest colours on my nails! (Btw, I am wearing Topshop's Celestial on my nails at the moment. It is the prettiest cornflower blue, and the quality is great too!) So this fall deep, luxurious purples, striking neutrals are whats hot. My pick for purples is definitely OPI's Midnight in Moscow, a rich plum, and for neutrals it would have to be L'oreal Paris' Opera Ballerina (101), the sweetest baby pink ever! Photo from here.

And lastly, Here is a photo which i found on weheartit(love that website!). I just think that this photo is so beautiful- i would love to fly in a hot air balloon! Ahhh i love it so much!

Well, that's it from me, enjoy the rest of your week!
