A Long Board to Eat!

For my brother's 21st birthday, since I don't have money to buy an actual present, I decided to make him a special cake! Because he's now 21 I made him a Bailey's Irish Cream Cake then because we both live and love long boarding I decided to shape it as a long board and make cupcakes to represent the wheels :)

My friend Rachel, who you've seen in my photo shoot Doll Face, biked over from her house to help me bake! It was super fun and the cake turned out soo delicious! I wish there was somehow to electronically give you all some!
Hope you all have had a great day!!!

Better Late Than Never

Do any of you guys read Kinfolk Magazine? I've been a fan of theirs since they started when part of their first volume was online. Their amazing photography and beautiful stories completely inspires me and makes me want to do more little gatherings...which I'm planning with the new house!

Since I'm 16 and jobless I don't have enough money to buy a subscription (someday I will though haha) so I've been waiting for it to be printed and sold...and on sale...from the nearest store possible :) Finally, I have bought one of their magazines! I was able to buy the second volume and I'm planning on going back and buying the third soon! I love it...a lot...their fourth volume came out recently and I'm excited for it to be sold at the store I buy it from :)
 You guys should check out their website! Inspiration is plentiful there :) and follow my instagram: @sharrysongbird
Hope you all have a great day!!

Fashion Inspiration

When we went to Seattle my aunt brought with her some old photos of them when they were growing up. While looking through the photos I kept falling in love with the outfits they had on which I guess my mom expected because every time we go shopping and I pick something it reminds her of something she use to have haha :) I just wanted to show you guys some of the photos and outfit pieces that I love! I also pointed out which one my mom is...I look a lot like her when she was younger!
Hope you all have a great day everyone!

Painting a New Life

Well, maybe not a completely new life but a new room yes :) Like I said before, my family and I have been busy bees working on the new house...and after three long days of hard work I was too anxious to wait till the morning to share this with you guys!

Sunday we went to Lowes to buy our paint for our rooms and began painting that afternoon. Two whole paint cans later, we finished painting my room! Today we started and finished painting all the trims white! I completely love it! My hands however are feeling the pain in paint haha :) When we first looked at the house we didn't quite like the blue carpet and were planning on changing it, but after the paint we completely fell in love with how it made the room look! Now I'm ready to start decorating it like crazy!

 Here are some photos of the progress we've made:

I'm moving my clothes over tomorrow and we move the internet and TV over on Thursday and we've got a new washer, dryer and fridge! I'm so excited for this house to come together! All that's left upstairs are the trims for my parent's and brother's room!
Hope you all had a great day! It's 11 pm and I still have to wake up early to work on the new house more! Time to crash :)

Doll Face

So...I totally told you guys I'd post these photos last Thursday but that never happened haha :P This is my latest photo shoot I've done! And the cool part is that these photos were taken in my new house :D The roof photos are from outside my room which is cool because now I know that I can just hang out on my roof top when I want :) The model is one of my closest friends! We've known each other since I was in 4th grade and she was in 5th and we're practically sisters now haha
There are 70 edited photos all together soo I'm just going to give you guys a few! You can find the full photo shoot on my flickr account! It was so hard to choose which ones to put on here because I love them all so much haha! Enjoy :)
Hope you guys have had a great day! And thanks Rachel for being a perfect Doll Face! Love you sister :D <3
My family and I are starting to work a lot on the new house so sadly blog posts may be very few for the next week or two but I'll try my best to keep you guys updated!
