Fashionable Flower Crowns for the Summer

Hey cupcakes! In all my recent trips to the mall, I was shocked to see that flower crowns are still trendy and in a lot of stores. I think these crowns are super cute, so I wanted to compile a list of my favorites to share with you all! :) Let's get started!

1. Gold Flower Headband: Forever 21, $5



This headband isn't technically a "crown" per say, but it will do the trick if you aren't bold enough to wear an actual flower crown when you are out running errands ;)

2. Yellow Flower Crown: Claire's, $6


Yellow flowers just make me so happy because they remind me of the sun during the summer. This crown is super pretty, yet simple!

3. White Floral Crown: Amazon, $7


White flowers go with basically any outfit, so I think this is a staple for an girl's closet if they are into the flower crown trend :)

4. Rose Crown: Etsy, $35


I love shopping on Etsy because you can find so many unique products! There are a million different flower crowns on the website, so I suggest checking it out if you are looking to buy a really nice quality one.

5. Simple Pink Flower Crown: JCPenney, $5


If you are looking at add just a little girly vibe to your summer outfit, this floral crown is for you! :) It is so chic and simple, and I love the pink color!

Movie Review: Avengers Infinity War

Release date: April 27th, 2018

Rating: PG-13

Image result for avengers infinity war

Hey cupcakes! :) My boyfriend recently dragged me to see Avengers: Infinity War, so I thought it would be fun to share my thoughts on the film. First, I have never been a fan of superhero movies (as you could probably tell from my review of Captain America Civil War and Wonder Woman haha)... Overall, I thought this movie was fine, but it wasn't stellar or anything.

I liked how they had almost all of the Marvel characters in one film (minus Hawkeye and Antman), but I thought the plot was pretty lacking. The main villain, Thanos, was obviously more powerful than all of the superheros combined, so I thought it was fairly obvious that it wasn't going to end well for the "good guys". This made the fight scenes not as exciting because the outcome was pretty obvious. Plus, the 2 hour and 40 minute movie was pretty much all fight scenes, so I felt it got boring at times.

Image result for avengers infinity war

I also wasn't a fan of the ending because it just wasn't believable. *SPOILERS AHEAD* There is no way in heck Disney/Marvel would kill off 3/4 of their superhero characters, because then how would they make their money? While it was probably supposed to be a cliff hanger for the sequel coming out, it was just a stupid ending in my opinion. A cliff hanger isn't really suspenseful if you know they will all come back (lol especially since some of the "dead" characters have movies coming out soon/are in the works). 

All in all, if you like superhero movies, you will probably like this film just because of all the fighting  scenes and the sheer number of superheros present. The movie has gotten really high ratings, but I just wasn't a fan (probably because I don't like the genre haha). What did you think about Avengers: Infinity War??

My 5 Favorite Workout Videos

Hey cupcakes! Over the summer I am (usually) more motivated to work out, as I have more time to actually spend time doing so. If I am looking for something different to do compared to running, walking, or core, I love to find videos on YouTube for a workout. These are my top 5! :)

1. Cardio Kickboxing - This workout is great if you have always wanted to try kickboxing (because it doesn't require any equipment!). Got me sweating and was pretty fun too!

2. Beginner Barre - I am a big fan of barre workouts (where ballet and core are combined), so this is perfect for someone just getting started!


3. Boxing - This is a more intense cardio boxing workout, and it really gets the blood flowing!


4. Barre Sculpting - The first time I did this I basically died but this workout strenghtens literally all of your muscles!!!


5. Easy Pilates - If you like Pilates, this is for you! :)


YouTube has a bunch of workouts to watch, so if you are looking for a new workout to do, I suggest doing some searching and trying other videos out! What do you do to workout in the summer? Comment below and don't forget to follow The Chic Cupcake to never miss a post!

Summer Fashion Haul (My Recent Purchases)

Hey cupcakes! I hope everyone is having a great day :) I have been doing some shopping lately (now that I am home from college and actually have time to do fun things haha) and wanted to share my recent purchases with you all... Let's get started!

1. Pink Peplum Tank - Aeropostale, $4

This shirt is super cute! It is on the shorter side (but not a full crop top), so I can't wait to wear it with some high waisted shorts. 

2. Light Pink Tank - H&M, $10

This shirt is awesome because it can be dressed up or down. Because of that, I actually really wish I had gotten more colors of this same tank... Oh well! It is super comfortable, and I plan on wearing it under blazers once my internship starts in June. :)

3. Flower Three-Quarter Length Top - H&M, $10

Again, this shirt is awesome because it can be dressed up or down! The material is nice and thin so you won't sweat (even though it has a three-quarter length sleeve). 

4. Sephora Birthday Gift - Free!
Image result for sephora bite beauty birthday gift
I haven't actually tried this kit out yet, but it looks super great! 

5. Black Blouse - JCPenney, $6

I love the lace detailing on the top of this shirt, so I just couldn't pass it up (especially since it was on mega clearance). 

6. Bodycon Dress - H&M, $18

I always seem to find things at H&M.... This dress is super classy and cute, and I thought having another LBD would be a good idea ;)

7. Let's Flamingle Tank Top - JCPenney, $2

Image result for flamingle tank top jcpenney
Lol - for $2 how could you not buy this tank top?

8. Nashville Enamel Pin - Draper James, $15

As some of you may know, I recently went to Nashville, TN to celebrate my 21st birthday! I never want to buy some useless snowglobe or keychain when I travel, but I just had to get this adorable pin at Reese Witherspoon's store! Can't wait to put it on my jean jacket :)

Recipe: Brown Butter Almond Crinkle Cookies

Hey cupcakes! I know my last recipe post was also for cookies (read that Peanut Butter cookie post if you haven't already), but I baked these cookies the other day and just HAD to share the recipe with you all! :D I have always been a huge fan of cookies containing almond extract or almond paste and these cookies have the perfect amount of almond flavoring - plus, they are easy to make (and the recipe makes a TON of cookies)!


What You Need:
-10 tablespoons of butter (or 1 stick and 2 tablespoons)
-1 cup sugar
-1/4 cup brown sugar
-2 eggs
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1/2 teaspoon almond extract
-2 1/2 cups flour
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-For sugar coating: 1/2 sugar and 1/2 powdered sugar

What To Do:
1. To brown the butter, heat it in a small saucepan over medium high heat (swirling it as it melts). This process should only take about 2-3 minutes (the butter will foam and then turn light brown. I couldn't actually see it turn brown so I burned my butter a little... I would just time it for 2-3 minutes and then take it off regardless of color).
2. Transfer the butter to a different bowl to let cool.
3. After the butter is fully cool, add it and the sugars (white and brown) to the bowl of an electric mixer and cream together on medium speed (or beat by hand).
4. Add eggs and extracts and mix until combined.
5. In another bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt.
6. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing the dough on low speed. Mix until everything is incorporated.
7. Cover the bowl and let chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
9. Prep the sugar coating: put the sugar and powdered sugar in separate bowls.
10. Scoop dough into balls and roll in sugar and then powdered sugar (depending on the size of the ball, you can make anywhere from 2-4 dozen!). The more powdered sugar, the more cracked/crinkle effect!
11. Place dough balls on parchment covered baking sheet.
12. Bake for 12 minutes.
13. Remove from pan onto wire rack to cool before storing them in an airtight container. These cookies are great warm too! :)

What is your favorite cookie recipe? Haha - since I have been making so many cookies lately, maybe I will continue that trend ;) Don't forget to follow The Chic Cupcake and let me know how your cookies turn out!

Love,

Thoughts: Meghan Markle's Wedding Look!

Hey cupcakes! I don't know if you heard, but there was a huge royal wedding yesterday!

The pageboy was literally me throughout the wedding :P
I didn't watch William and Kate's wedding, so I got up at 5 AM (yupp - wayyyy too early for summer!) to watch Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get married. I thought it was a gorgeous wedding and wanted to write a post about what she wore to the big event.

Tiara - I thought that this crown/tiara was so simple but elegant! It sparkled and caught the ligth so perfectly, and I thought it went with her dress so well :)

Image result for meghan markle wedding crown

Makeup - I was so happy she went with a natural look for her wedding! I guess it makes sense that she did this though as the British royalty aren't really allowed to go crazy with lots of makeup (did you know they have one specific nail polish color they can wear??)... And she looked absolutely stunning! She is such a beautiful person <3

Dress - Meghan's dress was designed by a lesser known designer named Clare Waight... And it was gorgeous! It was way simpler than I would have expected, but I thought she looked amazing (like a true princess). It made her seem like a normal bride than the bride of an uber fancy royal wedding, which I loved! I also really loved the neckline on her!


Veil/Train - I loved how they had a bunch of kids walk with Meghan down the aisle. :) Her veil and train were beautiful (and super long haha), and the two pageboys were adorable.


Did you get up and watch the wedding?? Comment below your thoughts on her dress and don't forget to follow The Chic Cupcake to never miss a post!

Living a Lower-Waste Lifestyle 101

Hey cupcakes! As I said in my Book Review: No Impact Man post, I have been inspired to live a lower-waste lifestyle. Zero waste is something I have been thinking about for quite some time now, but I know it will be a difficult transition. Therefore, I thought a "lower waste lifestyle" would be perfect for me! :) Maybe if I end up really liking this, I will transition to zero waste, but as a college student with a tight budget this makes the most sense for me. If you would also like to live a better life (for both yourself and the planet), join me by doing some (or even all!) of these things:

1. Take quick, 15 minute showers - If you can, don't wash your hair every day (because that will cut down your shower times by a ton!). This saves a lot more water than you'd think, and I don't find it that difficult to do. Usually people sing or think or even sleep in the shower, so do that during other times when you aren't wasting water!

2. Turn off the TV - I hate when people leave the TV on when they leave the house or sleep. Turn off the TV as much as you can (and even cut out lots of TV watching time in your life to find alternative less-waste activities!).

3. Walk/bike to work - Even carpool if you can! Try to reduce your car usage :)

4. Buy groceries at bulk stores - I can't wait until my internship starts, because there is a bulk store only 15 minutes from my apartment! This allows you to cut out plastic packaging, and I plan on having a whole pantry of glass (sustainable!) mason jars when I get my first real apartment in a couple of years.

bulk food whole foods
Places like Whole Foods or health/organic stores usually have bulk sections! 

5. RECYCLE - Please. Recycle. Everything.

recycling symbol

6. Compost (if you can) - I personally won't be able to do this until I get my real first apartment, but if you have the means composting is super awesome!! :D

7. Go to the thrift store! - Lots of clothes at the thrift store are perfectly fine, so buying second hand saves those products from ending up in the landfill. It also takes a bunch of water to create new clothes, so switching to second hand ensures that you aren't making any extra waste. :) I have been hitting up the thrift store a lot in the past weeks and have found some awesome clothes (let me know if you want a haul)!

8. Stop using disposable products - Our society is very much a "one-use" type of culture... Try to avoid any disposable products to prevent the landfills from being filled to the brim with them. Here are some simple switches:
                 -Lunch box instead of Ziploc bags
                 -Dryer balls/buddies instead of dryer sheets
                 -Metal/glass straws instead of plastic ones (or order drinks without the straws!!)
                 -Reusable water bottles/mugs instead of plastic ones (THIS IS SO EASY)
                 -Reusable bags instead of plastic: I carry a bag with me in my purse for the grocery store and other stores too!
                 -Reusable produce bags instead of plastic ones (these can be used for bulk food too!)
                 -Beeswax wrap instead of plastic wrap
                 -Ear picks instead of Q-tips
                 -Metal safety or straight razor over plastic ones
                 -Bamboo bath wands/dish wands instead of loofahs/sponges
                 -Menstrual cups over tampons/pads

zero waste alternatives

My Experience: Nashville, TN!

Hey cupcakes! As you can see by the post title, I went to Nashville to celebrate my 21st birthday! :D I thought it would be fun to write about my time there to help any of you who may be thinking about taking a trip there. Let's get started!

So my trip basically consisted of two things: bar hopping and murals. Even though I did turn 21, I am not a big fan of drinking... However, it was super nice to be able to actually get into all the bars (I felt so official getting carded)!!! The main strip of Nashville is just a bunch of bars one after another:

Image result for nashville strip

Each bar has live music all day and night, so I literally hopped around listening to group after group from 11 AM until 10 PM. :) There were so many awesome musicians, it was just incredible! I am not even a fan of country music, but the people were just so fantastic!! There were a bunch of bachelorette and bachelor parties everywhere (and of course the occasional drunk), but it was overall a pretty tame experience with all the drinking.

On top of the bars, there are a lot of famous murals in Nashville, so I also spent some time taking pictures with a bunch of them. :) It was pretty fun walking around to find them (kind of like a wild goose chase haha), and it was a great way to get a new profile pic for Instagram haha.

Image result for nashville mural

During the rest of my time there, I walked around the city, saw a performance at the Grand Ole Opry, walked around Vanderbilt university, and ate a 100 layer donut at Five Daughters Bakery (YUM!).


Overall, it was a fun trip! I was only there for the weekend, but it was honestly plenty of time. After you bar hop on the strip for one day there isn't much else to do. Because I am not into the whole drinking scene, I don't think I will ever go back to Nashville; seems like a one trip and done type of place. However, if you are looking for a fun weekend getaway I suggest checking it out for some awesome music! :)

Movie Review: Z-O-M-B-I-E-S

Hey cupcakes! My boyfriend and I were chilling together the other day and saw a new Disney Channel Original Movie (DCOM) on TV. Being the child that I am (haha), I made him watch it with me...

Image result for zombies dcom poster

And let's just say I was very disappointed. I grew up with DCOMs like High School Musical and Camp Rock, and even though a lot of places online said that this would be another hit like those, it was most definitely NOT.

First of all, the plot was terrible and was mildly reflective of some horrible treatment of Jews and African Americans in our world's history (like how did this not cause outrage?!). Basically some sort of factory exploded that turned people into zombies... but no worries they could wear these things called "Z-bands" to monitor the chemicals in their bodies. Even though they act like humans, they have green hair which means that they must:

-Wear government issued coveralls (hmmm Star of David anyone?)
-Live in the ghetto separated from the city BY A WALL
-Go to school and enter through a door literally labeled Zombies
-Take class in the basement and cannot join any groups with "normal people" in them (ummm segregation how about?)
-Deal with people hating on them all the time

The whole story is about how the zombies are mistreated, but a human cheerleader named Addison falls in love with Zed, a zombie. Together they fight for integration through cheerleading because DUH cheerleading can fix any problem. The whole thing was just bizarre.

Image result for zombies dcom gif

None of the songs were that spectacular either... And the acting was just like the acting on the new Disney Channel shows: sad and disappointing (plus, the guy who played Zed was like a million feet tall which was honestly just impressive). Lol - I wasn't a fan of this movie at all, but I would love to hear your thoughts if you watched it too!

How to Style: Cowboy Boots

Hey cupcakes! As I alluded in my What to Pack for a Weekend Trip post, I took a short trip for my b-day... If you haven't been able to guess yet, this post may totally help! ;) Cowboy boots are pretty popular where I went, so I thought it would be fun to share how I would style them if I owned a pair. Let's get started!

1. Casual Cowboy - If you are looking for the classic all-American cowgirl looks, I suggest wearing some jeans, boots, and a plaid/flannel shirt. :) If you want to be a little more trendy, find a plaid shirt like this one from Rue21!


2. Summery Chic - I think this is the cutest way to style cowboy boots! I have been seeing fruit printed dresses all over the place lately, and I think a dress like this strawberry one (from Forever 21) would look so cute with some cowboy boots!


 3. Who Like Short Shorts - Cowboy boots also look great with shorts during the hot months of summer! Pair your denim shorts (these are from Windsor!) with a cute blouse or even a kimono like in the picture. So cute!

Book Review: No Impact Man by Colin Beaven

Hey cupcakes! I have been going to the library and doing a lot of reading recently (yay!), so I thought it would be fun to write short book review posts to share what books I have found interesting (in case you are looking for something to read). :) If you like these posts, please let me know in the comments, so I can decide if I should continue them!

no impact man book

So, the first book I decided to read was No Impact Man by Colin Beaven. Some of my friends are environmental science majors, so I have learned a lot about sustainability through them. The topic of saving the planet and being more sustainable is something I am also pretty passionate about, so one friend recommended that I read this book.

To put the story into a two sentence summary: Colin realizes that he wants to do something to help the planet so embarks on a one year journey of zero waste with his wife and kid. The book shares his reflections throughout that whole year. :)

Overall, I thought this was an eye-opening book!! As I mentioned before, I have always tried my best to recycle, conserve water, turn off the lights, etc. but this book made me realize that there are so many other things to do. Just looking around at our society shows that we live in a "one use only" and "throw-away" culture where everything from coffee cups to Q-tips to plastic wrap is just thrown away after one use. Did you know that China and the USA produce the same amount of fossil fuels in a year? Doesn't sound too bad until you realize that China has about 5 times more people than America!

The stats used in this book were easy to understand and truly do open your eyes to how awful we are treating our planet. Because of this book, I am going to try to be more sustainable by trying to avoid plastics and "one-use only" products (more to come on this in a later blog post!!!!). Even though the topic was pretty deep, No Impact Man had a good mix of seriousness and humor that made the book a really great read!

If you are even remotely interested in the environment or saving the planet, I would definitely suggest this book! :) What book have you read recently? Comment below and don't forget to follow The Chic Cupcake to never miss a post!

21 Things I Learned in 21 Years!

Hey cupcakes! As my birthday happened recently, I wanted to dedicate a post to sharing what I have learned throughout my short life :) I honestly can't believe that I am already 21... I'm so old haha! Hopefully this post can help you all (younger, older, or even same age!) through this journey we call life.

Image result for cupcake with candle gif

1. Drinking isn't everything - Since I can now legally drink, I definitely want to clear the air that drinking isn't as exciting as people think. I feel like so many high schoolers start drinking early in life because it is "cool", but I don't really find anything special about it. Stay safe everyone; drinking isn't as cool (or even necessary) as you think!

2. If there are no ups and downs in your life, it means you are dead - I found this quote on Pinterest a while back, and I think it is extremely accurate. In 21 years there have been so many ups but also so many downs, but you have to learn that getting up and being resilient is crucial!

3. Do what makes you happy - Don't go to that party you don't want to attend. Try that new hobby. Stop being someone's friend if you don't want to be anymore (aka don't feel obligated to continue friendships that aren't beneficial to you!). Quit playing that instrument or sport even if your parents disagree. FOLLOW YOUR HEART - life is too short to be unhappy! :)

4. Family first - Now that I am almost done with college and will be shortly moving out of my parent's house, spending time with my family has become even more important to me. <3 Your family is everything - a support network, a shoulder to cry on, and a true friend. Make sure you have a strong bond with your family so that your kids will also learn just how important family is.

5. Try in school! - I am so lucky I had parents who pushed me in middle and high school because I would not have been able to get into a great college if I hadn't learned how to work hard. Start trying at an early age because then it won't be so difficult when you are trying to get your degree :)

6. Find a hobby that doesn't involve a screen - With school, work, and watching TV (and blogging haha) we spend so much time staring at a screen. Find a hobby that gives you time away from that glow - try cooking, reading a physical book haha, knitting, etc.

7. Take care of yourself - Find time to exercise (or at least take a walk or climb up some stairs)!! Drink water!! Don't put anything harmful into your body!! You only get one body, so make sure it will last <3

8. Learn and then learn some more - Don't read something and believe it - do your research and make sure you spread the correct information! Google doesn't know everything ;)

9. Be your own cheerleader - The only person who truly has your back 150% of the time is YOU :D Support yourself, your goals, and your thoughts to make sure your life is what you want it to be.

10. Don't care about what other people think - People gossip. People think/say bad things about you. But that will never change. You can be the prettiest, richest, and most intelligent person in the world and someone will still have something mean to say. The sooner you learn how to cancel out the worries about what others think of you/your actions, the better! :)

11. Stay positive - Smile at people, think happy thoughts, do an act of kindness. If you are more positive, life will be more positive.

12. Have faith - I am a religious person and have found that my faith has allowed me to live a more fulfilled life. I encourage everyone to also seek some sort of spiritual faith in their life too!

13. Don't associate with people who bring you down - Cutting out friendships, not talking to someone at work, breaking up with a long term boyfriend etc. are all okay if those people bring down your quality of life or don't treat you right. Again, life is too short, and you deserve the best!

14. Be YOU - I am 21 years old and still love Disney movies and cartoon dinosaurs. But nobody is ever going to change that because it makes me ME. :D

15. Be on time - Lol this is a critical life skill people. It makes you seem way more put together even if you aren't.

16. You win some, you lose some - Don't stress for weeks about a failed exam or presentation. Don't wallow in the past. Nobody's perfect (aka Hannah Montana's mantra thanks girl!).

17. Give back - Don't be selfish all the time; donate, volunteer, and do your part to help the environment. <3

18. Take a few risks, I believe in you! - Life would be boring without a little risk wouldn't it? ;) Experiment away cupcakes!

19. Eat your fruits and veggies - Lol, sorry for the lame tip but it actually makes you feel so much better if you get all your health in each day :P

20. Be smart with your money - It is never too early to save for retirement am I right?!

21. Enjoy life!!! - Again, life is short! Make sure you are enjoying it :D
