I Adore What I Click // July 2016

August 2, 2016 in I Adore What I Love

For those of you who are unfamiliar, or for those of you who just forgot, here’s a recap on what my “I Adore What I CLICK” posts are all about…

I tend to click on web links and other blogger’s blog posts 24/7 like it’s my job, all in hopes of coming across something interesting, entertaining, endearing, funny, and above all, exciting to read. Once a month, {and I know this time I’m a little behind!!} I like to compile a list of links that I’ve recently clicked on & post them under the heading of “I Adore What I CLICK”.  My sources are sure to be random, whimsical, & unpredictable; please be sure to let me know what you think in the comments section of this post!

1. This is how famous bakeries {Sprinkles, Magnolia, and Georgetown Cupcakes} frost their cupcakes… each way is more mesmerizing to watch then the next.

2. These 9 mascara tricks are seriously legit.

3. The title of this blog post is “The Hardest Part of Parenting Isn’t What I Expected” and oh I get it.

4. Trying to take a great bathing suit photo seems pretty daunting to me, but read this for some tips. 

5. 18 visual diagrams to help you be a better {read: healthier!} snacker. 

6. I find this whole story about the woman who publicly left People Magazine SO interesting!!

7. There’s nothing worse than getting ready to eat some ice cream and opening the container only to see it have major freezer burn! Try this genius tip to make sure that doesn’t happen EVER again!! 

8. Wine goes bad. Find more about that here{PS: that’s why I’m obsessed with these single serving glasses!}

9.  This recipe for fudgy mint chocolate no-bake cookies is not recently written but I came across it this month and it’s totally up my alley! 

10. 10 hotels to stay in at some point in your life. Enough said!

    Such great articles you’ve shared here, beauty! I’ve just pinned the fudgy mint no bake cookies, they look SO good! And OMG, I CAN’T believe the letter the former People journalist wrote, my jaw was on the floor the entire time! I don’t know what to say about that one, haha! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great week ahead!
