Today’s Fashion Trends
WEAR YOUR PEARLS DAY is all about class. These beautiful gems will highlight any outfit. The day also represents the fact that even though these precious stones started off as a grain of sand or an irritant, they grew into something beautiful – just as each and every one of us can.
On Today’s Menu…
INTERNATIONAL TEA DAY celebrates the second most popular drink in the world, right after water. I am not a tea drinker at all, so my wife has had to educate me a little bit on the subject. Apparently, herbal teas have no caffeine while there are decaffeinated teas that used to have caffeine but don’t anymore. I also know that sweet tea drinkers will pucker up instantly if they accidentally taste a batch of unsweetened. If tea is your thing, enjoy a glass of iced or a steaming mug of hot today.
NATIONAL CUPCAKE DAY is our dessert of the day. These little cakes are perfect for two or three bites and then your sweet tooth is satisfied. Of course, now you can find these tasty gems that look like they are on steroids and that a sugar factory exploded all over them. If you are counting carbs, one homemade cupcake has half the calories of those that you get from a bakery – so, get to baking.
