“If at first you don’t succeed, eat a cupcake!” ~ Unknown Author
We can take life far too seriously sometimes. Or get so bogged down in our daily grind that we forget to have fun, and to stretch our wings a little. In fact, it can get so that even if we find some spare time we no longer remember what to do to make ourselves smile, to relax and have a laugh, or how to be giddy with excitement and joy.
These fanciful cupcakes are designed to help bring back into your awareness the things that will give extra colour, texture and meaning to your life right now.

♥ The Message and Gift of each Cupcake ♥
Each Cupcake has a message for you. I have also selected a crystal to best support the message and energies of your cupcake. You could wear or hold this crystal, pop it in your pocket, under your pillow or beside your bed. (If you’d like to know more about working with crystals click here) The Power Word is a word to remind yourself of the quality you most need and that you are strongly attracting right now. You can turn it into your own personal mantra by saying “I choose ___________ ” (insert your Power Word). Your Magical Escapade is an activity to help you come back into balance and have a little fun.
♥ Candy Cupcake – Short breaks, holidays and weekends away. Your soul is crying out for some down-time. It could be a picnic in the woods, a day at a theme park, a Sunday drive, a weekend escape to the coast, or a longer holiday. Planning is half the fun. Start getting a list together of some places you’d like to go and then… go! ♥ Best Crystal – Lepidolite ♥ Power Word – Relaxation ♥ Magical Escapade – A trip, a drive, an outing, an adventure, a holiday!

♥ I Want Them All Cupcake – New ideas, new experiences, new destinations. Variety is what you need right now. A smorgasbord of new tastes, sounds and experiences. Maybe give yourself a day where you go to a movie, browse through a bookshop, eat at a little foreign food cafe, and go to a market or a shopping mall you haven’t been to before. It doesn’t need to cost a lot of money. Libraries have all sorts of stuff that you can borrow for free. You could catch a bus, a tram, a train or a ferry and go somewhere new. Listen to a busker. Tune in to a new radio station. Cook up a storm at home, and watch a DVD! ♥ Best Crystal – Amazonite ♥ Power Word – Discovery ♥ Magical Escapade – A feast for the senses Markets, libraries, shopping malls, music anywhere, suburbs with a multi-cultural buzz.

♥ Happy Woofers Cupcake – Friendship and Togetherness. Life is so often better when it’s shared. Your soul is hungering from some social connection. Maybe you need more time with your partner, your family or your friends. Maybe it’s time to get out there and meet some new people or start to date again. You have a big loving heart, and you need people in your life so that you can better express that warmth and caring. If people aren’t your thing, get a rescue pet or volunteer to look after a guide dog puppy! ♥ Best Crystal – Rose Quartz ♥ Power Word – Good Times ♥ Magical Escapade – sharing time with the people you love, or meeting someone new.

♥ Rainbow Cupcake – Creative Immersion. Your Inner BEing is longing for some creative expression and to fill you up with new ideas and creative concepts.

♥ Historical Cupcake – Connection Through Time. You are surrounded by so much love right now. There are unseen hands and hearts reaching out through time to love, guide, comfort and inspire you. Did you know that we often reincarnate into the same family lines over and over? This is a great time for researching your family tree, catching up with relatives, or reconnecting with people and activities from your past. Do all you can to find out who you are, by understanding where you and your family have come from. You’ll be so pleased you did! ♥ Best Crystal – Labradorite ♥ Power Word – Heritage ♥ Magical Escapade – A trip down memory lane. Look through old family photographs, diaries and cookbooks.

♥ Lemon Meringue Cupcake – Sweet Indulgence. Rewards always taste better when we’ve worked for them. Whether you have a goal in mind, or whether life’s tough right now and you want to reward yourself just for hanging in there, it’s time to indulge yourself in some of life’s pleasures. Think about what you want to achieve, and what you can reward yourself with for getting there. Make a list – and make your rewards achievable and worthwhile. Then do the things you need to do to get those sweet indulgences. Life’s too short for it to be all work and no pleasure! ♥ Best Crystal – Calcite ♥ Power Word – Rewards ♥ Magical Escapade – Anywhere delicious It could be a travel agent, a beauty parlour or day spa, a shop full of chocolate and cupcakes, a shoe boutique or a computer store. It’s what makes YOU feel indulged, pampered and a little luxurious. Enjoy – you’ve earned it!
♥ Penguin Cupcake – Inner Child. Seriously, you need a big dose of fun right now. Think of little children. They have an innate sense of fun and curiosity. They can have as much fun using their imagination and playing with the box that the toy came in, as they can with the toy itself. Play! Create! If you have a pet, play with them. Play with your kids. Go to a local park with some friends and play ball. Or tag. Dancing, sport and any kind of movement is good. So is baking cupcakes and decorating them in weird and wonderful ways. What’s fun for you? What makes you split your sides laughing or plasters a grin all over your face? Go do that thing! ♥ Best Crystal – Angelite ♥ Power Word – Playfulness ♥ Magical Escapade – Anything that captures the joy, playfulness, curiosity and creativity of childhood. Baking, mini golf, ice-creams at the beach, making a snowman, giggling with your friends, making macaroni necklaces or papier mache dinosaurs. We’re not aiming for art – we’re aiming for fun and self-expression.
♥ Pretty in Pink Cupcake – Makeover Magic. Oh honey, you need some makeover love! Maybe it’s time for a haircut or a manicure. Diet overhaul? Time for a tune-up? Maybe you need to update your wardrobe, refresh your home decor, or get a pampering massage.

When we allow ourselves permission to spend time, money and energy on ourselves, we send a strong message to the Universe about our positive self worth. ♥ Best Crystal – Clear Quartz ♥ Power Word – Self Care ♥ Magical Escapade– Places and people that style, refresh and pamper you.
