Sorry for not posting of late...turns out managing 2 blogs is like, hard. Sigh. What happens when I want to launch my food blog someday? This is a first world problem, isn't it....

Anyway my new thing about Pink Sparkle Fun is that I'm not gonna stress about posting unless something really walks up to me and slaps me upside the head with inspiration.

Well, I found something!



The recipe can be found at Raspberri Cupcakes and just wait till you see! The teeny little buns are made from Japanese sweet dough and are filled with raisins and frosted on top! But I'm thinking of sweetened coconut inside. Can you believe these little guys? I think I would eat about 100 of them because they are so little and cute! And frosted!

Friends With You

Isn't this incredible? These large scale models of Friends with You toys were part of the Happy Rainbow exhibition in Hong Kong. I wrote about the magic of these darling, cute toys in this post over on Julia's Bookbag.

You can see even more from the HAPPY RAINBOW exhibition here at Designboom.

Pink Door

I want to be here. What's inside? I think life would be perfectly charming in a house with a pink door.

A dazzle punch of floral bright to start your week off cheery and light!  (yeah, I rhymed.)

Party Birds

I saw this Party Birds print over at Creature Comforts the other day, and what do I should I put this....I AM PRETTY SURE MY LIFE WILL NOT BE COMPLETE UNTIL THIS IS IN MY HOUSE.

You can find this darling print over at Les Zigouis.

Two Pink Smoothies

Strawberry Smoothie of Awesome # 1. This delight is flavored with coconut milk and lime. The original image and recipe can be found HERE

Awesome Strawberry Smoothie #2. This baby uses real cream. I totally approve. You can find this lovely HERE.

Since I can't decide which looks better, I will be trying them both.

The following is Julia's review of the movie 'Brave':

"I liked this movie because it was a girl who was BRAVE and Scottish and, and brave, wow."

If that doesn't sell the movie for you, I don't what would!

Pink Ombre Cake

This cake would truly be the pinkest, most fantastic, pinkalicious cake in the history of pink cakes. Yes, I have cake on the brain. There are worse things!

A Little Snow Fairy Sugar

Watch. And marvel. At THE XTREME CUTE! At the PINK HAIR! At the SUGAR BABY LOVE! (it's in the song).

Your mind is blown away, far far away, right?

Shabby Chic

Shabby Chic Interiorts: My Rooms, Treasures, and Trinkets

Lately, I have been riding a wave of rediscovered love for all things Shabby Chic. I used to love that whole aesthetic, but it fell to the wayside as I succumbed completely to all-things-Domino. The Domino look is still my favorite decorating style. (WHY is that magazine gone??)

But I digress. I'm feeling like I have a small opening in my heart for a bit of Shabby Chic to make its way back into my life...little bits here and there...everyone can use a teensy bit of pretty for pretty's sake, yes?

So I find it highly likely that I'll be checking out Rachel Ashwell's latest paperback book, when it hits stores later this summer. And I'd also like to see her book, 'Shabby Chic Inspirations'. I used to own this one and I loved it. I wonder what happened to it?

Moshi Monsters

My kiddo's new obsession is the online game Moshi Monsters. She loooooooves it like you can't believe.  The game really is pretty darn cute. You can find this stylus set here.

Cotton Candy Tree

Is this not the most darling idea for a party? Any party! I am knocked out by this idea, it would just be simplicity itself to put together. Genius.

Baking With Style

Baking Style: Art, Craft, Recipes

I am a HUGE, mega Lisa Yockelson fan. Her cookbooks are FAB. Her recipes always work out. Her recipes always inspire. I've had this cake cookbook for about 15 years and it's still a big favorite.

So imagine the EXTREME DELIGHT when I discovered that she has come out with 'Baking Style', a brand new book. And it's pink. Some days are just happy days, you know? I cannot, cannot wait to get my hands on this one. And then I'm going to make this.

Pink Pillows

Just saw these amazing pillows from Bonnie and Neil over at Design Sponge this AM, hot off the presses. They almost made my eyes pop out. Pink pillows that actually look cool and not like something you need to hide in your kiddo's room? I'll take one of each!

The second pillow is apparently temporarily sold out. Focus on the temporarily part!

1) Dahlia Tile Cushion Fluoro Pink, $125. (awesome pillows are sometimes an investment, but they will last for years!)
2) Pink Gum Cushion, $125.

Pink Bunny Baby

Julia INSISTED that I put this picture on Pink Sparkle Fun. Now that I think of it, all she saw was the baby in the bunny suit and not the caption underneath. But really, this is pretty darn hilarious and cute and hilarious.

(I cannot find the original source! If someone knows, I'd love to be able to credit properly. I found it on this Tumblr.)

Lucky Charm Cupcakes

I saw these cupcakes with Lucky Charms in the batter and decorated on top with more Lucky Charms and thought oh YEAH, that looks like something that needs to be on Pink Sparkle Fun! My kiddo saw this photo and asked, "Can that go on my blog please???" and I was like, "That's what I'm doing baby-cakes!"

So here you go. Lucky Charms cupcakes. I saw this recipe from Cupcake listed as a fun recipe for St. Paddy's Day, but really, don't they look just right for summer? So fun!

A Pink Tent By the Sea Print

By The Sea Pink Splash Personalized Wall Hanging

A pal of mine pinned this darling pink-cabana-at-the-sea art from Rosenberry Rooms the other day and I was instantly charmed by it. You can get the print personalized, like you see here, or plain with no monogram. I think it's utterly delightful and just perfect for summer!

A Very Pretty Party

This is one of the prettiest parties I ever did see...

Just LOOK at it all, I don't know where to start. The decor, the treats, the drawing in of the amazing color wall...I mean seriously, this is amazing. You must check out Griottes, the original site from whence all this fabulous sprang, there are even more incredible photos. 

This is definitely one for the inspiration files!!

Tokidoki Toys

This is Polpettina. Isn't she cute? Once my kiddo saw this little creature she begged and pleaded and begged some more. She got it last Valentine's Day. I've asked her to be careful because Polpettina is a bit poky, even though she's vinyl.

Polpettina is one in a line of toys from a company called Tokidoki. You've gotta check them out! I'm quite partial to the Stellina Unicorno Plushie.

Stellina Unicorno Plush

Isn't she a cutie pie? Not so poky!

Happy Pink Sugar Dusted Cake

I recently came across a charming French blog that someone pinned on Pinterest -- Minireyve. And as I was scrolling and exploring -- 'scrollexplore' -- just made up a new word, I saw this cake o' Pink Sparkle Fun. Love the duck in the middle! LOVE the way just the edges, sides and the very middle has the pink, with other colorful sprinkles added for extra embellishment.

Prettyrific Room

I saw this room yesterday over at Bleubird Vintage. The original images and whole house tour can be seen at The Selby. Made me stop in my tracks.

A little bit of pink, a little bit of sparkle, and A WHOLE LOT OF FUN.

It's Little Girl Heaven!

Kawaii Plushies

Are these plushies not the cutest? Saw them over at Super Cute Kawaii...

(kawaii means 'cute' in the Japanese -- so does this mean that the name of this site really means Super Cute Cute? Love it!)

The plushies come from another adorable site, Shop, and if you are anything like me, you are going to FREAK OUT at how much Kawaii cuteness is over there!

(Be sure and click on the Japanese Fancy Shop link, it's so awesome...)
