February gets the short end of the stick. No pun intended. Here it is not even half way over and I’m already swamped. When this posts tomorrow I’ll have already been awake and active for three hours and hopefully safely on my trip to the giant state of Texas. It’s a business trip and I am both excited to go and miserable to leave (something that my BF is having a hard time understanding). Not cuddling with my cats for four whole days! (I know there are people who don’t get to see their kittens for much longer, but let me have my melodrama, people!).

Now on to the fun stuff! A giveaway!

Today we have an awesome giveaway from the generous and oh so kawaii* Tasty Peach Studios.

update: The giveaway originally published and promoted with this post has ended.

Tasty Peach makes adorable charms, jewelry, totes and more! I found Tasty Peach Studios through the magic of the internet and have loved the pieces I have from them. I get so many compliments and questions about my cupcake necklace when I wear it! Not to mention – its a cupcake! I was so thrilled when I received my first package because the charms weren’t teeny tiny but actually a nice size and made to withstand every day wear. I actually ordered more the next day because I was so hooked! These are my fun cute pieces I were out and about.

Selected for you :   Strawberry Poke Cake & Labor Day Recipe Round Up

Today’s prize package (because I’ve always wanted to type prize package) includes:

adorable cupcake charms

Kawaii Cute Blue Bear Chocolate Cupcake Acrylic Necklace
Mocha Latte Adjustable Acrylic Ring
Chocolate Layer Cake Acrylic Charm
And an adorable handmade resin donut charm!

Keeping with the theme I made these awesome matcha topped chocolate cupcakes!

See, cupcakes, cute! Wink wink, get it?

*What language are you speaking?!

Matcha is a powdered green tea from Japan. Kawaii is the Japanese word for cute. See? I was sticking to a theme here!
