T-Shirt Time!

Recently I have found that whenever I work out I wear the same few tank tops. I have a whole drawer full of Band, Concert and Athletic T-shirts so I thought it was time for me to cut a few up and make some new workout gear! 
It was super easy to do and I cut up the shirts while watching commercials during my favorite shows. Its a great way to add some variety into your workout wear! I found tons of how to videos and blogs, which I will post some links to, but I also enjoyed creating my own designs and playing with rips and tears in the shirts as well.

Recipe Review: Hummingbird Cupcakes

For my Mom’s birthday I decided to make her a special treat and I’ve had my eye on these cupcakes for a while now! Not only were the beautiful to look at with the pineapple “flowers” but they were delicious to eat as well. These cupcakes tasted delicious and were a nice escape from a typical sweet cupcake, inspiring me to make these as a breakfast muffin as well!
