O How Pinteresting!! 11/2/11

Pinteresting Wednesdays actually stems from The Vintage Apple blog. The image above links to that blog. Check it out!

Welcome to another Pinteresting Wednesday!! This week I have quite a few pins because I did the Halloween editions and I didn't get to share some of the awesome stuff that I found over the past two weeks.

So, I am going to start off with these Awesome Cupins (cupcake/muffins), at least that's what I'm calling them. This is a recipe that I MADE this week. We had our Halloween Potluck on Thursday at work and I thought Pumpkin cupcakes would be perfect. I found this recipe a few months ago, and thought it was SUPER easy and it only called for TWO ingredients; a cake mix and a can of pumpkin that's it, no eggs, no oil. In the original recipe it called for a yellow cake mix but I used a spice cake mix instead and it made it more like pumpkin pie flavored. mmmmmm <3

Anyway, they came out more like muffins than actual cupcakes because they didn't rise like cupcakes do. But I figured if it's in a cupcake liner and has frosting on it - it's a cupcake. LOL I did frost them with cream cheese frosting and put little black eyes and mouth on them so they looked like ghosts.

I guess since we are here, I'll continue with the food theme. First, I love Chipotle!! So anything that says it's going to be similar I have to repin! Next thing I love is Cherry Limeade's and I found a recipe for those too! Then last but not least, I found the most adorable cupcakes - yes those are cupcakes with a brownie in the middle.

Next theme, Beauty; gotta have my girly fix! :) I found an idea for keeping track of bobby pins, whoever thought of using a paperclip holder was a genius! Next a beautiful nail polish color, O.P.I. Black Cherry Chutney oooOoooo - I must say it's very dangerous to have nail polish blog posts sent directly to your email inbox. And last, the reminder of a smokey eye fail.

I told you about the potluck, well that day I decided to do my makeup different and tried to do a Halloween inspired smokey eye. I vow to never, ever, ever try to use a black eye shadow when creating a smokey eye, ever again. Talk about Fail... I was able to fix it so it didn't look TOO horrible but yeah, no black eye shadow... Black eye shadow is BAD Mkay?! lol

Next I found some fun tips and tricks. The first one is beauty related but it still fits here too. I found a lady who is in love with sock bun curls just like me and she had some very good tips and tricks on how to make them pretty. I am really going to have to borrow some of her ideas! ;) Second link is chock full of tips and tricks, these are mainly related to around the house and kitchen tips but they are awesome!! And the last link is a link for iPhone apps for little kids; they have games as well as educational apps too.

Last is Funnies!! Here are 3 comics that made me laugh. The first one may have a swear word in it but it is still hilarious!! The second one I can really relate to and the last one well...You must know I AM a Twilight fan, but that one is just plain hilarious!! ;)

Finally we are to the end of this week's Pinteresting Wednesday post and as always I want to end with some Wednesday Wisdom."It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, You fail by default." - J.K. Rowling
