Charm City Cupcakes: Gourmet and Delicious

Yesterday I enjoyed a local delight – as I was visiting my husband’s law office located at 300 East Lombard Street, I discovered that Charm City Cupcakes was also a tenant in the building.

Charm City Cupcakes

This award winning bakery has three locations in the Baltimore area: Lombard Street, Mt Washington Mill and Smith Avenue.  With a variety of designs and flavors, the cupcakes are baked fresh daily which explains the superb taste.

I was pleasantly surprised as I bit into my double chocolate cupcake because both the icing and cake was delicious!  I also noticed that a few of the cupcakes have names that are specific to the state of Maryland such as Black Eye Susan, Baltimore Black Bottom, and Pimlico.

Fox 45 Morning News Parenting Products Segment

On Wednesday February 19, 2014 I was asked to host a lifestyle segment with Fox 45 Baltimore News Station. This was a wonderful experience because I was able to talk about a topic that’s close to my heart (mommy products) and visit the news station for the first time.

I also had the opportunity to chit chat with a few of the ladies who are “expecting” and gave a few product recommendations.  Overall, I enjoyed sharing information about the three “mommy” products and currently preparing for my next upcoming segment. 

 Decided to wear pearl earrings, fuchsia blouse and black leggings for the segment. The photo below is a picture of my favorite floral pumps purchased from Target.  Please visit my instagram  account (@kwest1908) to view this look…

 

Television Segment on ABC’s The List Baltimore: Watch Here

Yesterday, I hosted a lifestyle segment on ABC’s The List, Baltimore. I was very excited to have this opportunity because it was my first time on television.

One thing that most people don’t know about me is that I majored in Fashion Merchandising (in college) but I also had a theater scholarship for three years. I never imagined that I would have to put those skills to use other than teaching high school students.

Nevertheless, I hosted the segment; talking about how moms can keep themselves and baby safe during the cold winter months. Of course this was a topic that I could discuss because I have two boys.

The two products featured were really great and I hope the segment helps busy moms (such as myself) to live life a little easier.

B.DESCAI Fashion Collection: Love Bloom…an Evolution of Love

B. DESCAI is a fashion line that’s known for it’s blend of vogue and fairytale articulation.  The designer (Brandon Descai) featured his newest collection titled, “Love Bloom…an Evolution of Love” on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at EMP Collective located in Baltimore, Maryland.

According to the designer the show, “takes audiences on a love ride with garments inspired from the fast paced, surprising yest whisimical effect that love offers.”

Personally, I am “over the moon” with the designs and styling for this show.  It is the perfect combination between art, drama, and couture.  Some of the accessories used for the show are playful head pieces and “mod”  tights.

In my opinion, the B. DESCAI show is very reminiscint of vintage Betsey Johnson from the nineties.  With such a beautiful collection, there’s no question that this show was a success!
