Chocolate Raspberry Cake with Mascarpone Buttercream Frosting 

hey guys!
it has been a while since my last post here, which is extremely fatal in this blogging age.
i am still amazed how you can "follow" so many people on a day to day basis, as if they´re your close friends!
you have been a part of my giving birth to baby Raphael, my opening party for Couture & Cupcakes and soon, my turning 3-0. eek!
in instagram, facebook, twitter, snapchat (where i have decided not to join, to those who´ve asked) and of course the blog. what did i miss?
my life may seem so glamorous, especially on these social media channels, but truth is, i have two kids now, a cupcake/ clothes shop, a blog business to run and a household to manage.
it is not that glamorous as it is stressful.
i partly blame pinterest for suggesting that an average mom can throw dreamy baby shower parties, bake gorgeous cakes, look sexy in high heels and still breastfeed.
i put so much pressure on myself to be the perfect blogger, business owner, girlfriend, mom and human being that i sometimes feel insufficient when something doesn´t go as planned.
i would like to give courage to all my readers though, who have been a part of this crazy rollercoaster ride, that everything is not photographed.
the ugly moments are better kept away from instagram.
the unsuccessful breastfeeding attempts, the destroyed cakes, the stretch marks!!, the ugly outfits thrown in a hurry as not to miss Miguel´s school and list goes on.

so don´t be fooled by all the pretty pictures, we are all in this together.
