My Seahawks & The Fashion They Inspire

That NFC Championship Game tested my heart. From the unbelievably awful first half to the even more unlikely comeback, I was cheering like crazy. My Hawks are going back to the Super Bowl and I could not be happier. No matter the outcome, I’m just glad we even made it back to back years, a feat in itself. If you’re a Seahawks fan like myself, or if you just can’t stand the Patriots, here are a few ways to show your allegiance:

1. Navy eyeliner
2. Bright green nail polish
3. Seahawks lime green sweater
4. The cutest beanie that I’m pretty sure is sold out but you can find others styles here.
5. Seahawks blue skirt

Happy Friday! I’m still on a high from Sunday’s events. Yes the Seahawks won and I could not be happier. Our Super Bowl party was a success and here’s what I ended up making:

Those mini corn dog muffins were so cute and very yummy that I might just make them again for my next party.

I also received my first Valentine-themed chocolates from a good friend who was such a good sport despite the Broncos losing. Next year, buddy.

This February is also the month that The Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR) is running their “Kisses 4 CANFAR” campaign. They’re asking Canadians to kiss HIV and AIDS goodbye by raising awareness and donating. You can wear red lipstick from February 1st to the 15th and tweet, Instagram or Facebook your photo with #smoochselfie #Kisses4Canfar to let others know about the campaign. You can also go to their website to donate!

Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Super Bowl 48 and the Fashion it Inspires

Wow! Last night’s game was seriously amazing. There was no way I could’ve predicted the outcome. I mean sure I was expecting the score to be that high, but for Denver. From the bizarre safety to start the match, there was no turning back. The Legion of Boom was legendary and the best team won. Even Peyton agrees. I love Peyton but let me just bask in the glory of the Seahawks’ win. In honor of the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, here are some pieces that really inspired me:

Denver Broncos

1. Horse Print A-Line Dress
2. Striped sweater in Denver’s Colors
3. Broncos Print Pyjama Bottoms

Seattle Seahawks
Fotor0201124910
1. Sleeveless striped dress in the Seahawks’ colors
2. Bird Stud earrings
3. Hawk sweater
I can’t believe football season is over. But at least the Olympics are right around the corner! Happy Monday everyone and hope your week is awesome.

I am super excited for this weekend, there are no words. Ok, maybe there are some words, but first here are the things that made me very happy this week:

I got these $100 boots for $30!

I also bought my best friend and I matching Team Canada mittens because we were holding hands when we watched Sid Crosby score the game-winning goal last time. So even though we’re apart, we can watch the games “together”. Aren’t I the sweetest? The answer is yes.

The end of January also meant that Dlish Cupcakes‘ limited edition flavor was going to change so I just had to have these Belgian chocolate cupcakes filled with dulce de leche from Argentina one last time…or two…ok, fine, three!

And now for what I’m looking forward to the most: Super Bowl 48! I’ve already started to prep for my Super Bowl Party.

I’m still deciding on which of these recipes we’ll end up having on Sunday. I just know that it’s gonna be an amazing game between the Seahawks and the Broncos. I’m obviously rooting for Beast Mode and the Legion of Boom while some of my friends will be worshipping the ground Peyton Manning walks on until the end of time. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Hope everyone has an amazing weekend! Go Hawks 😉

Tailgatin’ Thursday: Super Bowl Party Recipe Round-up

Every year my friends and I gather for the Super Bowl. This year would be the first time we’re hosting and I could not be more excited. First of all, my team the Seahawks are playing. Second, they’re going up against the Broncos. Two of my friends are Denver fans, one is a die-hard Peyton Manning fan so that should make for an interesting atmosphere. And last but not least, the food, duh! Super Bowl is the perfect excuse to indulge. Making these cupcakes have always been my contribution each year to every Super Bowl party we attended:

But now that we’re hosting, in addition to my cupcakes, I want to try some new recipes and luckily the internet does not disappoint. These are the ones that caught my eye:
1. My friend Jon said he might bring this amazing-sounding dip. Please do Jon, please do.

2. Four words for you: Bacon. Potato. Cheddar. Tart. Obviously this recipe is by a Canadian chef.

3. The bf loves deviled eggs so I thought I might make them with an added Super Bowl twist.

4. Aren’t these just the most adorable little things you’ve ever seen?! Don’t you just want to eat them up?! Exactly.

5. Ever since I saw photos of people’s Super Bowl snack stadiums, I’ve been wanting to make one of my own. Will this be the year the Seahawks win? More importantly, will this be the year I build a snack stadium?

I won’t necessarily make all of them, especially the last one, but rest assured that there will be plenty of food to go along with the football. Go Hawks!

It’s Friday! Hope everyone had a great week. I know I did. Let me share with you a few of my favorite things:

Last Sunday we watched the AFC and NFC Divisional Championship games and my predictions came true. My Seahawks won and they’re going to the Super Bowl! I love hosting a Super Bowl Party so I’ll definitely do a post on that next week.

I was also hit with a sudden craving for pancakes but I can never make them as perfectly golden brown and slightly crispy on the outside while still being fluffy on the inside. Luckily I found a diner that can do them just the way I like ’em. I highly recommend getting pancakes this weekend, or making them if you’re more of an expert than I.

In fandom news, the DC Universe Animated movie Justice League: War came out this week. Apparently the post-credits scene alluded to a possible Aquaman movie which would make me so happy if it came true! For those who have not read the New 52 Aquaman, you might still think of him as a joke but they made him one of the most badass superheroes out there. Seriously.

Have a great weekend! Go shopping (window or online are both acceptable), make your Winterlicious reservations and just geek out over something you love.
