Beaded Baubles: ALJ Jewelry

Hi everyone! One more semester to go! In all the madness, I still haven't gotten around to Christmas shopping, but I told my sister I would go with her when she comes back from school.

Recently, I helped my mom create a jewelry shop on She really enjoys making bead bracelets and necklaces in her free time. As a result, she decided she wanted to share her creations with others and created ALJ Jewelry. I wanted to help her promote her creations and display some of her beautiful pieces.

Let me know what you think of her pieces below! Feel free to also visit her shop to see more of her creations!

Tasty Treats: Molly's Cupcakes

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! My goal is to survive the week and then I'm home free! However, I wanted to take a short break from my papers to put up a post on some yummy treats I purchased for my friend a while back. Enjoy!

I had seen Molly's Cupcakes featured on a local show and for the longest time, had wanted to give their cupcakes a try.

When my friend came to visit from out of town, we decided to pay Molly's Cupcakes a visit. Of course they had a wide selection and since it was my friend's b-day that day, I decided to get a dozen so that we all could try some different flavors.

From Top to Bottom
Row 1: Boston Cream Pie (x2), Cookie Monster, Peach Cobbler
Row 2: The Ron Bennington (x2), Cookies 'n Cream, Peach Cobbler
Row 3: Red Velvet (x2), Cake Batter, Peach Cobbler

To top it all off, some of these babies are cream filled in the middle. Yummm.
If you are ever in Chicago, definitely consider giving Molly's Cupcakes a try!

Note: Products were purchased with my own money and the reviews are 100% my own.
