Yes, it's finally officially Spring! Other than a few days of rain, it's been absolutely beautiful here and I couldn't be happier. We are busy finishing up our Spring/Summer issue of Mini-ologie so stay tuned, we are hoping it's just a matter of a few days now. It's coming along beautifully and we are so excited for you to see how inspiring and uber pretty it is! I'm short on time today, but here are a few photos of what I've been up to... and what's been inspiring me!
A few photos from Pinterest and other home and garden magazines are the perfect places to get my creative juices flowing...
A sweet Spring picnic...
Create's a picnic in Mini...
And makes me crave pie in real life too... :)
Seeing images of Spring and Summer...
Makes me excited to create Miniature Spring/Summer sweets...
Seeing a real dresser used as a buffet...
Made me create one in my backyard for a brunch filled with delights..
Visiting our NY bakeries...
Had me swooning over the basket of muffins...I had to make
something similar in Miniature...Can you tell which is which?
Jennifer's Way Bakery is a vintage styled, your grandmother's kitchen inspired , dream come true for the actress Jennifer Espesito. It's located in NYC on the east side and is completely gluten-free, whole
food based, all natural, made fresh all day long Bakery and just fabulous in every way!
If you come to NY or live here, you must go!
Here's my little version... :)
Speaking of super healthy and delicious, besides working on Miniologie
and my miniatures, I've been working (as I said it the previous post) full time
on my own health.
I'm happy to say I'm very close to my goal weight , and the "numbers"
I cared more about are all now perfect and I couldn't feel more blessed and happy
about that. I feel like if I can do it, anyone can! I'm a food lover and I love the process
of sitting down to a delicious meal with family and friends and not feeling deprived!
That has never been easier than it is now. We have so much information out there and
recipes, and books too. The trick was finding what worked for me. And I must say, more
importantly, I wanted to weed out the "fad diets" and over the top extremists and just find
something that was the most healthy way to eat.
Basically, that's whole foods, less sugar, no processed foods and white flours,
lots of plants and veggies and organic foods. I'll be sharing more about my life
and health changing decisions and details, in upcoming posts, but if you'd like to
follow along or start on your own journey, my Pinterest board is full of recipes and
motivation: Just go to my Pinterest: Cynthia Lauren Sperin and the board is "A Healthy Life".
In a couple weeks after our Miniologie is out , I will be posting much more about what
I eat and how this has made everything in my life even more wonderful!
Here's a little sneak peek at my board...
Taking care of yourself makes everything in life so much richer. Besides
having something to keep passionate about such as hobbies with Mini's , or hobbies
in basically anything, we all need to make sure we come from healthy places
in our lives so we are the best we can be. I'm so happy I found a way to make
that delicious and fun too!
Here's one of many delicious green smoothie's I love...
Just add to blender in this order: 1/4 cup water, 1 carrot, 1/2 cucumber, 2 tbs. Greek yogurt,
1 cup fresh spinach, 1 apple. Delicious and so fresh! Enjoy!
We'll be letting everyone know when Mini-ologie is out in a few days, so thank you for
your patience everyone!
Enjoy your weekend and I hope it's filled with beautiful weather and great health!
Hugs and kisses!!
