My Day Of Instagram

anthill//my gorgeous bracelets//i need more great lash!
Originally, today I was going to make a tutorial for redoing your rings but it started raining and the lighting wasn't good so I called it off. Sorry!

Instagram is one of the handiest things I have ever used. I love the effects and how easy it is to change your pictures. Follow me? Search up ilovemycupcakes and I'll follow you back!

Have you guys ever come across a game that is like your drug? Ahaha, the game Anthill is mine. You basically have this little colony of ants and there are bugs that come along trying to destroy your hill so you have little defenses to stop them. The ants are absolutely adorable.

I'm putting up a bracelet tutorial soon so that picture above is a little teaser. :)

I need more Great Lash!

Could / Should / Would You Use Reusable Toilet Paper?

Good news: Could/Should/Would is one of my new blog series! 
Bad news: I've been having some difficulty with finding inspiration for DIY projects and such so C/S/W should help me with that. 


Reusable Toilet Paper

C/S/W you ever use reusable toilet paper? Now, not to be gross/ offensive here but a while ago, I heard about cloth toilet paper that you wash and reuse again after each use. Let's see the facts.

Could You Ever?

You could. Considering that you wash it with hot water and soap, no dangerous bacteria should linger on the cloth. Even if there was, you wash your hands after you use the toilet anyways so it's not like you would be eating down the bacteria.


Should You Ever?


I totally understand why some people might prefer cloth toilet paper rather than manufactured toilet paper. It is softer and more environmentally friendly. I don't know if you should though. The washing of the cloths uses more water so when you weigh out the options, it might be close. 


Would You Ever?


Personally, I wouldn't. I could probably try but I don't think that it would work out. I don't have the time to keep washing my toilet paper over and over again. What are your opinion's on this? Comment below!


The Verdict: 

It's reasonable. If you're into saving a couple of bucks and you're frugal, I would go for it! It's not for everybody but the people that do make it work, I admire you.

I Love: Snooki & Jwoww

My love started when I watched Jersey Shore. The moment Nicole/ Snooki walked into the house saying " Party's here!" , I was hooked in and I kept watching every week and I started really getting into the show. 


I know a lot of people say that Jersey Shore is garbage and that it is a waste of time. When you actually watch a whole season of it, you realize that yes, you are watching a bunch of people party,'smush' and get into fights every night but you are also watching a family. They all care about each other and they all act like how a real family does.






4 seasons later and MTV announces that they are filming Snooki & Jwoww. If you understand what I say about them being a family, you will understand when I say that Nicole and Jenni are sisters. 


Give it a chance, it's surprisingly funny and they really have calmed down from their days of Jersey Shore.  They might be blunt, honest, outspoken and raunchy but they are also themselves. 


Leave a comment about what you think!

DIY * No Sew* Yarn Hairbow


I was trying out knitting (updates on that later) and I gave up on it because I couldn't even cast on but then I thought, " what about non- knittters, what do they do with yarn?" and I just needed a bow so let me stop blathering and get on with the tutorial!



1. Take the end of your yarn and place it in the middle ( *ish* ) of your hand.


2. I wrapped mine around my 4 fingers about 7-8 times.

I Would Go Lesbian For...

Haha,most of you are probably thinking " What? I thought she was straight!" I am. I'm straight as a stick. ( If you're gay, or lesbian or bisexual however, I have nothing against you and good for you! )

I Would Go Lesbian For...Demi Lovato







Most of you probably know her story and how she went to treatment for 3 months, came back out and was a lot healthier + happier after. You probably know her from that story but that's not all she should be known for.

I've been a Lovatic for about 4 years now and my love for her has only grown. Everything she does is either cute/crazy ( or cray cray for you Lovatics out there).  My Lovatic family is amazing. I honestly think that our fanbase is the friendliest. ( Just putting that out there.)

You don't have to love her, you don't have to like her but all I ask is that you respect her. Respect her story and respect who she is. And maybe, once you haters start respecting her, maybe you can listen to her music and relate to it because she has a ton of amazing music.


P.S Happy Skyscraper Day!

Weekly Roundup



I really love sharing things that I've seen around the internet and I've decided to start a new blog series because it's fun! I think every Thursday is a good time so look out for it! 



That's it for this week!

What Belongs In A Bag

What Belongs In A Bag

A lot of young girls purchase a new bag and they're all excited but then they have no idea of what to put in it. Here are some suggestions of what to fill your bag with.


Bag:  Steve Madden Bflagged // 1. Stilla Golden Godess Kit //2.Orbit Sweet Mint Gum // 3. Bath And Bodyworks- Malibu //4. Tweezer Man- Hot For Dots // 5.Tampax Pearl Compax // 6. Samsung Galaxy Note // 7. Paris Mirror Compact

Since it is June 4th today and Americans are celebrating, I chose this American style bag that I think is extremely cute.  

1.  I usually try to find mini makeup kits that allow me to stuff in my bag and go. Try and choose the makeup that needs touching up or something that you use daily instead of bringing out that bright blue eyeshadow you haven't worn in years.


2. Sometimes, you meet really hot guys at that bakery/cafe across the street and one thing turns into another and before you know it, you're kissing him. Bring some gum or mints out to get rid of your lunch breath.


3. Hand cream is useful. Nuff said.


4. Have you ever been in the washroom checking yourself out when you lean closer and you discover you have eyebrow stubble? Yeah, bring some tweezers out for some quick plucking.


5. Unexpected period got you down? No,I'm not a tampon commercial but it really helps when you have your period.


6. I use my phone for practically anything now, FB, twitter, as a mirror, taking notes and texting. 


7. Lastly, a compact mirror is super useful in making sure you don't have lettuce stuck in your teeth or if you need a quick touchup!
