How to: Not ship something


       Remember when I accidently baked two King’s Cakes instead of one, and how I was going to send one to  my boyfriend? Well I did. And I being the good girlfriend I am, realized that there was no way my boyfriend had powder sugar to make the icing. Thus I decided to send it to him. All wrapped up cute in tin foil with a plastic baggie of powder sugar attached with a pretty ribbon and a note saying how to make it. It was supposed to arrive in two days. Each day, I would wait patiently for it go get there and get a thank you. But it did not arrive until three days late. Why? Because apparently, the postal service figured out there was a bag of white powder and decided to test it (ie slash the baggie) so it pour powder all over the box. They also sent it to JFK numerous times, enough that someone had to write on the package exactly where to ship it in big sharpie lettering. So my advice is don’t ship powder sugar, next time I will just send him two dollars and tell him to go buy it himself.

  1. I literally laughed out loud for five minutes, then read this story to my boyfriend, then laughed for another five minutes.

    Sorry for your cake, but thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi. I'm a stylist in LA and I'm totally obsessed with your blog. I'd love if you visited my new blog for multiple posts a day on all things fashion. I just moved to California after graduating back in south with a degree in visual merchandiser. In attempt to get my heel in the door, I've launched a site all about celebrity fashion and the trends that create it. Check out what Vanessa Hudgens was wearing when I ran into her last week and Olivia P's breaking news. I'd love the support. I'm following you, I hope you'll do the same. Thanks so much.
