As a blogger, I am constantly searching the internet for new ideas and inspiration, and often I come across links that I love and find really useful that they make it into my bookmarks. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite links in a regular post called My Bookmarks. Let me know what your think and happy Cinco De Mayo!
1. How to get faux-looking lashes using baby powder. I found this article on Real Beauty and had to try it right away. It was very simple to do, and although I felt my lashes didn't look any longer, they did appear to look thicker. Try it for yourself at Elle.com.
2. Margarita Cupcakes: What's more perfect than making Margarita cupcakes on Cinco De Mayo? One of my favorite bloggers, Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere, posted this recipe this past week and I had to add it to my recipe book. I actually made these last year and never kept the recipe, so I was very excited to come across them again. They're not too difficult to make and delicious! They'll definitely be a hit if you're heading to a Cinco De Mayo party. Get the recipe here: http://cupcakesandcashmere.com/recipe/margarita-cupcakes-recipe
