Cupcake Cuties

A few weeks ago, Marisa of Viva Voluptuous sent me a lovely email to tell me I had won her Cupcake Cuties give away!

I was, of course, absolutely thrilled as I never win anything; (well, apart from the time I won a meet and greet with my favourite musical Irishmen, but that's another story altogether).

 The giveaway was launched to celebrate nearing 200 followers on her lovely blog; giving readers the chance to win cupcake earrings or charms in their favourite design and colour preference. You can read more about the give-away here. I chose the lovely swirl icing cupcake earrings and asked for green and pink so I could embrace the pastel trend.

These lovely earrings were handmade in Canada by Marisa's bestie, and came through my door today, putting a much needed smile on my face.

Marisa also sent me a lovely note with the earrings.

The card is just fantastic. I love the iconic Marilyn Monroe prints by Andy Warhol! Such a nice touch. The message was really sweet, too. :)

The other side of her business card has a great quote by Sophia Loren on it. "Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical". I completely believe that.

Her list of trades on the other side made me smile, but as it shows all her contact information, I won't share it as I don't want to invade her privacy.

Now for lots of close ups of the lovely earrings...

These earrings are just the most adorable earrings I've ever owned. They're made from clay, and coloured in delicate shades of green and pink, with toffee coloured cake (or cases)? They're not too heavy; so I shouldn't have any problem with sore lobes at the end of the day! They're so cute and quirky, which is perfect for me because the quirkiness suits my personality.

Please ignore the dusty blue-green drop earrings beside them. I promise not to lead the cupcakes to the same fate!

Thank you so much, Marisa, for the gorgeous earrings! I love them, and promise to take care of them well. Please pass on my thanks to your bestie, and let her know how talented I think she is! I'll post photos of me wearing them as soon as I can.

Go check out Marisa's blog and give her a follow if you haven't already!
