I recently came across this video of Kristen Bell on Ellen that I just had to share with you all. Now I’ve adored Kristen Bell since her days on Veronica Mars, and have probably watched every single episode a gazillion times…maybe more, but who’s counting?

Her reaction in this video is pretty priceless. Granted, I would probably have a similar reaction too if there was a penguin involved, who doesn’t love penguins?

Aren’t they so cute?

I’m tempted to steal one from the zoo.



With Valentine’s Day literally around the corner, many of you may still be wondering what to make for that special someone of yours. If you’re like me, and still debating what to do, fear not for I’ve got you covered. After searching through countless blogs, and what seemed like an endless supply of Valentine’s Day inspired desserts I have assembled a last minute list of scrumptious recipes that are sure to make your loved one feel special.

These delectable red velvet cheesecake-stuffed cake balls from Willow Bird Baking are absolutely adorable, not to mention easy to make. Who could say no to chocolate, red velvet and cheesecake? I know I sure as heck wouldn’t. These are the perfect treat, and are guaranteed to make that special someone of yours fall madly, deeply in love with you.

Another easy to make recipe that is sure to make you the ultimate Valentine’s Day hero are these Valentine Dipped Strawberries from Quick Dish. Don’t strawberries and chocolates just scream romance? *Swoon*

It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without some Red Velvet Cupcakes, aren’t I right? These cupcakes come from Bakerella, whom I am in love with at the moment. She’s managed to take romance to the next level, by adorning each red velvet cupcake with cupid arrows. Now if these don’t say I love you, I don’t know what does.

Who ever thought Twinkies couldn’t be romantical thought wrong. These Valentine’s Twinkies on a stick come from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen and are not for the faint of heart.

Olive you.

Pardon the pun, but these martini and olive cookies from bakeat350 are a clever idea and quite fitting for this Valentine’s Day list. So instead of giving your loved one conversational hearts, why not step it up a notch and make your own pun induced cookies instead.

Hey, doughnuts can be sexy too. These Heart Shaped Glazed doughnuts from Real Mom Kitchen look mouth watering. Imagine the look on your guys face if you showed up with heart shaped doughnuts? He would love you forever.

It’s no secret, but I love chocolate and if I could I would announce it from the roof tops. So if I were you I would make sure to check out these healthier brownies for Valentine’s Day from Eat Good 4 Life as they are sure to make you fall in love.

I hope that this list provided you with some inspiration on what to give that special someone for Valentine`s Day, as I know it sure gave me some.

Happy Valentine`s Day.


With Valentine’s Day vastly approaching I figured that it would be fitting for my first post to touch base on the whole subject.

I have to admit that I wasn’t always a fan of Valentine’s Day I saw it as an excuse for couples to go out, show off their affection for one another and get all lovey-dovey in public places. However, as time went on the idea of Valentine’s Day grew on me. Perhaps I’m a sucker for grand gestures or maybe I really enjoy the idea of receiving flowers and chocolate (they make a girl feel special, alrite), personal feelings aside Valentine’s Day is just like any other day.

Granted if you’ve got a special someone, here are a few gift ideas to make your Valentine’s more special.

1. Get your sweetie a card or get creative and make your own card. I personally adore receiving as well as making cards their simple and can say a lot.

2. This idea is a little more risqué and sexual (yes, I said sexual). Why not create your own love coupons? They are easy to make and from personal experience a big hit. If you’re too lazy to make your own, check out Etsy shop owner NeatThings she has a great selection of coupons and notes that are sure to spice up your Valentine’s Day.

3. Take your special someone ice skating, yes I said ice skating. It is affordable and sure to make any girl feel special. As women we do not always require flashy gestures, we like simple too. Gents take note.

4. Spend a night inside, crack open a bottle of wine and cook dinner together. If you can’t cook, improvise. Better yet, sign up for romantical cooking class together.

If you’re single don’t fret. Back when I was single and after watching the movie Valentine’s Day my housemates and I decided to throw our own Anti-Valentine’s Day party, hey if Jessica Biel could pull it off we could too. While you’re at it invite all the single people you know, who knows you just might get lucky.
