I was hanging out on Pinterest the other day looking for ideas for Easter decorating and got inspired by the pretty sugar cookies out there. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE pretty inspirations and just had to make them right then. I was surprised how easy they are to make! The frosting was a challenge and definitely needs some improvement but overall I think they look decent for a first timer. We took them to the Easter party and they were such a hit. I’ll be making them again and will share the recipe once I get it perfected.
So, here they are, my first ever Sugar Cookies!
As you know I’m in the process of rebranding and redesigning my website and blog. This means that it’s absolutely necessary to reshoot my portfolio pieces. This time around I’m going for a modern yet sophisticated style, with clean, simple and direct shots. I’ve been looking for inspirations on how to style my portfolio and as always
Pinterest doesn’t disappoint. Below are just a few of my faves.
And, now on to choosing which projects to include… I’ll share more about the project as I go further into the rebranding process.

I have been an avid follower of Katie Quinn Davies’ hugely successful blog What Katie Ate for some time and was counting down the days until this book’s release. Katie is a photographer, food stylist, graphic designer, recipe-writer and her debut cookbook is one of the most beautiful cookbooks I’ve seen. It’s really a feast for the eyes! If you are looking for a visually stunning cookbook that is filled with mouthwatering recipes, then look no further! Katie herself designed it and styled and shot every photo in the book. I admire her style of photography and food styling, rustic yet polished, and incredibly inviting. Besides, this amazing book is packed with recipes I actually want to make. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves food and food photography, and I think it would make the perfect gift for all foodies.
