Salt Lake Style

I’m heading to Salt Lake City today for a work conference. While I’m ready for spring in DC, I guess I’ll have to embrace the winter weather again for this weekend. My uniform will pretty much be skinnies, a loose blouse, cardigan, short chunky boots, and of course my faux fur vest. I just can’t get enough of this perfect furry, fun accent. It’s probably the only reason I want it to stay cold out there…

Be My Valentine {Design Darling}

I’m delighted to share a post this morning from Mackenzie of Design Darling. This girl is a superstar and will soon knock our socks off with the DD boutique launching this year. I can’t wait to see where she goes and all the great things she will do – but I think I’m even more excited to meet her a week from today! Let the blogger love continue!

Hi there! I’m Mackenzie from Design Darling and I’m excited to be sharing a little Valentine’s Day post here on Cupcakes For Breakfast! Whether you’re single, married, or somewhere in between, I think we can all agree that the holiday is a really great excuse to don our girly best and have a ball!


Pajama party, anyone? What are your plans for February 14? Thanks, Nikki, for having me!

Be My Valentine {Radiant Republic}

TGIF friends! I hope you’ve been having as much fun as I’ve had so far during this Valentine’s blogger love fest. I’d like to welcome Erika from Radiant Republic, who is just one of the sweetest gals out there. She and I instantly hit it off when we first starting chatting about a year ago. Check out her fabulous V-Day gift picks for a single girl like me.

Hi! I’m Erika from Radiant Republic and am so happy to be a guest today. Nikki’s blog has been one of my very favorite daily reads since the day I laid eyes on it. Just after launching my blog, she and I became fast social media friends. I SO look forward to the day we meet in person and was honored when she invited me here to meet all of you!

With Valentine’s Day upon us, my friends and family have mixed feelings about the admittedly commercial holiday. On whichever side of the pink and red fence you sit, a day to honor those who you love can be a pretty fun thing! I love taking time to send cards to my best girlfriends, my mom, and have a quiet dinner with my fiancé. But there is that special someone who is often overlooked in the gift-giving department…


This year, I’ve compiled a gift guide for the woman planning to treat herself. (I know I will!)
