When I first began my blog, Cupcakes and Cashmere, in 2008, I wanted to create a place that brought together all the things I was passionate about. I was a few years out of college, and eager to find more of a balance, so that my life didn’t revolve solely around my job.
Based on Emily Schuman's popular lifestyle blog, "Cupcakes and Cashmere" is a guide to dressing, decorating and celebrating with style. From crafty projects to spring cleaning advice, Schuman's book includes tips and tutorials organized by season. Here's an excerpt.
Now, Cupcakes and Cashmere is not billed as a green lifestyle book, but over the years I’ve come to learn that being eco doesn’t necessarily mean hemp t-shirts and pricey reclaimed furniture made by an artisan halfway across the world. Rather, common sense and putting a little more effort into day-to-day life is what makes the difference – and Cupcakes and Cashmere doesn’t disappoint on this front.
