Say It With Cupcakes

Cozy Winter Ready Outfit

This Valentine’s Day, I’m skipping the heart-shaped boxes of chocolate and reaching for a sweet, seductive cupcake instead. If that petite treat just so happens to be from Sprinkle’s magical Cupcake ATM (uh, genius?) , who’s going to stop me?

Luckily, said Cupcake ATM just so happens to be near my neighborhood and I headed to the one in Beverly Hills. Confession: I’m a cupcake die-hard and this may or may not have been my 1787 time here.

Automatic cupcakes? Hint: the answer is yes.

Snacked on a couple when I got back to work (oops!) but brought home a week’s worth of cupcakes for By. Love is in the air, after all.

Knock ’em Dead Valentine’s Day Accessories

This year, Valentine’s Day crept up on me and all of a sudden, we’re less than a week away from a holiday associated with lacy lingerie and romantic candlelight dinners. The only problem? I’ve been so knee-deep in emails and meetings this past month, that I haven’t had a chance to come up with a killer look for date night with the beau. For those Ambitionistas in the same boat, I put together Valentine essentials for the working woman.

So whether your style is classic, contemporary or casual, here’s everything you need to wow this weekend. Just pair a flattering black or red dress (or suit!) with one or more of these handpicked accessories.
