Collaboration with Sprinkled + A Sprinkle Mix GIVEAWAY

I am collaborating with Sprinkled for my Valentine’s cookies!

I was sent 3 of the most beautiful sprinkle mixes to incorporate into my cookies and, ya’ll, look at them!!  As a cookier and baker I’m easily amused by sprinkles.  They are so beautiful and it took me days to even want to open the package because I just wanted to keep them for myself.  But I’m so very glad I took the plunge and cracked these babies open.

Cookiers and bakers, I did not experience any color bleeding with these sprinkles.  They kept their colors perfectly on my royal icing as well as my butter cream.  Also, they get softer once in the icing.  They were a bit crunchy right out of the bag, but after my cookies were decorated my husband and I both tried one and sure enough the sprinkles didn’t have that hard crunch you get with some sprinkles.  Including the little gold nonpareils, so soft!

The first mix is called Love Actually.  It has the perfect mix of pink, red, and white and a few glitter heart quins mixed into it.  I used these on my Valentine’s cookies and I love how they really tied in well with the colors I had previously selected.

Love Actually

The second mix is called Wild in Love.  This is actually probably my most favorite mix.  I love all of the colors and I love that I was able to use this mix on cookies specific to little boys.  It’s a perfect blend and says “Happy Valentine’s” without the pink colors boys tend to not enjoy.  Plus I’m about 1000% sure I could use these on cookies for this coming Spring and Summer.  I think they’d be great on a Trolls themed party.. who needs cookies for this theme? Let me know because I’ve got some sprinkles for that!

Wild in Love

This last set doesn’t actually have a name.  It’s new!  And Shannon, from Sprinkled, wants my readers and followers to help name it!  To enter a name you think is best suited for this set, comment on this post, comment on my Instagram post with these sprinkles, or go to my Facebook page and comment on the post with these sprinkles.  Simply tell me what name you think fits best.  I will then narrow down the best 4 names and have a poll on my Facebook page for everyone to vote.  The winner will have these sprinkles named after their suggestion AND they will receive a bag of these sprinkles sent from Shannon.  How awesome is that?!  So please comment with your suggestions.  I will take suggestions until Monday, February 12th then post the poll on my Facebook so be sure you go and vote!

Suggest a Name for this Mix

Here’s the best part about all of this, even if you don’t win a Sprinkle Mix named after your suggestion you’re still going to get 20% off your purchase in her Etsy Shop by using my code, Brittany20.  This is a huge savings for anyone needing sprinkles, you do not have to be a baker or cookier like me to enjoy some fancy sprinkles.  Trust me.  You could use these in pancakes, on top of ice cream, not just baked goods.  Go check out her page, I promise you that you will love these as much as I do!

Check out my cupcakes I made using the sprinkle mixes.  Which mix is your favorite?  I’d love it if you’d comment below and let me know!

Updating My Closet

I’ve been working on cleaning out my closet as part of a way to get more organized this year.  I realized when going through my closet I had so many clothes that no longer fit, due to the fact I’ve had a baby and nothing goes back to “normal” after a baby, and so many of my clothes are what I wore when I worked in an office.  I rarely wear business casual clothing anymore.  My casual look is typically jeans and a top or if I’m getting extra fancy it’s yoga pants (just kidding.. not really!).  And now that I’m a momma I cannot spend hours searching in my favorite stores when I need to update my closet.  So I’ve quickly fallen in love with online shopping.  One of my favorite stores to shop for me is Old Navy.  I find that their products are affordable, trendy, and they make their pants in short/ankle sizes so they are perfect for someone who is 5’3″.

These are a few of the things I’m planning on getting to update my closet while we transition into spring here in the south.
