Jaclyn from Teacups and Cake

This is my first ever guest post on Emma's Looking Glass, and I think it's only right to have a fellow blogger who also enjoys the finer things in life, I'm talking about tea, cake, the gilmore girls, fashion and Ryan Reynolds of course! Introducing the lovely Jaclyn from Teacups and cakes


1. Tell me about your blog 'teacups and cake??'
   Teacups and Cake has grown and changed with me over the past seven years. It is my little place on the internet where I share my thoughts, ideas and inspiration. Right now that means lots of baked goods, clothes and tea.

2. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
   I love having a place to share my thoughts and a creative outlet. The thing that I really like about blogging is connecting with other bloggers. The community and friendships that developed during my first few years of blogging is what helped me to fall in love with it. I hope to continue to connect with other bloggers. 

3. Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration for posts from all different places. Other blogs, Pinterest and Instagram are at the top of the list right now. 

4. What blog is your favourite to follow?
This is such a tough question. I love different blogs for different reasons. Right now one blog that I am really loving is Just a Trace. She is a fellow Canadian blogger and super funny.

 5. What is your favourite place to visit and why? 
This is probably a cliche but NYC. I have been a couple of times now and each trip was so different. There is still so much of the city that I haven't explored. I think its a place I could visit over and over again and never get bored.

6. What is you're favourite thing to bake?
Cupcakes are probably one of my favourite things. There are just so many different flavour combinations to choose from. I love experimenting with different cakes and fillings. However, I am always looking for the next challenge. Whether its macaroons or croissants. 

7. What is you're favourite food?
I love anything chocolate. The more chocolate the better.
8. What is you're favourite item of clothing?
This is a tough one. It tends to change with the seasons. During the winter a I love a cozy sweater or scarf. In the summer I am all for dresses and skirts. Jeans tend to remain a staple all year round and I go through phases where different ones are my favourite. I do love my slipper socks that my grandmother knit for me this past Christmas I tend to wear them around the house on a daily basis.

9. Who is the most inspirational person in you're life?
My parents. I look up to them and I am always looking to them for advice. 
10. You started a 25 before 25 list on you're blog, are you enjoying it? What have you achieved so far?
I am a goal setter, so it seemed fitting to start my own 25 by 25 list. There are a lot of items on there that I am working towards or need to complete before I can accomplish other things on the list (graduation being the biggest obstacle at the moment). I am just started a Cake Decorating class this month which I am really excited about. I am working on reading the Jane Austin novels. So far I have made macaroons and gone to a sporting event. I am really enjoying checking the items off of the list. I just need Sex and the City to be on Netlfix so I can cross that one off. Haha.

11. Apart from The Gilmore girls (who are both amazing!) which fictional character would you most like to be?
I would love to be Sandra Bullock's character in the proposal. She is a high powered successful book editor with a killer wardrobe (those shoes!) and she gets to marry Ryan Reynolds. I would be content with being her.
