A little decadence (Blueberry Basil Cheesecake Cupcakes) from Bakerella

Love A La Carte features all the little things that make my life just a little more delicious.

Pilot Precise v5 Pens in various colors (a favorite since high school). And Stabilos!!

♣ The timeless classics of literature. (Right now I’m reading Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.)

♣ Two new gorgeous tarot decks: Fairy Tale Tarot and Tarot of the Sweet Twilight and having a trusted friend do a very special reading for me.

♣ Spending way too much on hair and skin-care products that don’t irritate my sensitive skin.

♣ Eating healthier and unprocessed foods.

♣ The music and cast of Glee.

♣ Making a wish list of inspirational items like a cool font-print bag and the Art of Tim Burton hardcover with fold outs.

♣ David Cook’s version of Mariah Carey’s Always Be My Baby.

♣ Getting advice from my mom on buying a new (or used) sewing machine and patterns to start with to get back into sewing. Or just getting advice from my mom in general.

♣ Croissants.

♣ My new Philips Adjustible Earclip Headphones (SHS4700). Nothing too fancy, but comfortable and good sound.

♣ Getting a little more in my paycheck from now on.

♣ Getting Overtime Pay.

♣ The promise of art supply shopping after work, then meeting up with a friend for drinks.

♣ Paying bills. Doesn’t it feel good when you’ve paid them off until next month? I always feel a bit of relief afterward.

♣ Having a (relatively) blank date book for the new year and getting a fresh start.


♣ Tim Walker’s photography.

♣ The first snowfall of the year!

      Aren’t they just? I think I might have to try out that recipe at some point because blueberry basil cupcakes sound kind-of amazing.
