Formal 2016 Dress Makeup Hair Photos

Welcome back to my blog! This weekend I attended my Junior formal, today I'm sharing some pictures I took from the day along with a photoshoot I had in the dress at the Philadelphia flower show.  You'll see my dress, how I did my own makeup and had my hair done professionally witch is perfect inspiration if you are attending a dance soon. I had so much fun at formal and took a lot of pictures, enjoy!  

The Dress

The look I chose for formal is very girly & romantic.  My dress has a beautiful white lace up corset covered in lace and beaded detailing flowing into a chiffon peach skirt. I adore the combination of peach chiffon, a sweetheart neckline, and a lace up corset.  My dress made me feel like a disney princess. 


I decided to pair my dress with these stunning pearl & lace heels that are the most glamorous shoes I have ever seen.  


 I got my hair styled into this beautiful tossed curled updo.  I love how the soft curls were beautifully swept up to create a girly and romantic hairstyle that stayed out of my face while dancing. 


I did my own makeup for formal and I created this glowing peach makeup look to match the light elegance of my dress.

I hope you all enjoyed the photos & I'll see you in my next post.

Vegan / Gluten Free Coconut Bunny Tail Cupcakes

Hello loves!  Last Sunday was Easter and I hope all who celebrated had a hoppy (hehe) Easter with friends and family!  Today I'm sharing the recipe for these cute little gluten free & vegan coconut bunny tail cupcakes that I made to bring to Easter brunch!  These cupcakes are so delicious, they taste exactly like coconut cream, a perfect treat for a spring party. 

Lets get baking!


Coconut Cupcakes 

1 cup soy milk

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar 

3/4 cup granulated sugar 

1⁄3 coconut yogurt (dairy free)

2 teaspoons vanilla 

1/2 cup of gluten free all purpose flour 

1/2 cup coconut flour 

1 teaspoon  baking soda

1⁄4 teaspoon salt


~Mix soy milk vanilla & apple cider vinegar let sit for 5 min 

~Add in coconut yogurt 

~Slowly mix dry ingredients into the wet until mostly smooth (as little clumps as possible)

~Fill cupcake wrappers with mixture

~Bake at 350 degrees F  18-23 min

~Cupcakes will be a bit soft when done, they will firm up when cooled 


Coconut Icing 

3 cups powdered sugar

splash of coconut water / milk

1/2 cup vegan butter

splash vanilla extract

Coconut flakes to top


~Let vegan butter soften 

~Beat all the ingredients together until smooth / fluffy 

~If too soft put into fridge to firm up 

~Ice cupcakes 

~Add coconut flakes to the top 

These cupcakes are dense and moist but have a perfect little  crumble at the top with a sweet coconut flavor.  The Icing adds a perfect amount of coconut creamy sweetness to the dessert.  Coconut Bunny Tail cupcakes are the perfect treat for spring occasions!

I hope you all enjoyed this post, be sure to tell me if you recreate these Coconut Bunny Tail cupcakes, they are a new favorite of mine!  See you in my next post!
