Last week, after I asked for suggestions about which blogs and websites to feature in the future, the incredibly sweet founder of “Sweet Nothings: Everyone deserves a little sweetness” wrote me a lovely introductory email. Providing information on bra fittings and sizing, lingerie finds, and mouth-watering baking recipes, Sweet Nothings reminds me of the desert tray at that over-your-budget-but-so-good-you-can’t-resist restaurant: There’s a little something for everyone, and it’s all delicious . . . except reading her posts don’t make you go over your monetary or caloric budget!
For the last several years, one of my side passions has been baking deserts (cooking and I don’t mix, but baking? Totally!), so this blog was especially interesting to me as it encompassed both my love of sweets and my earnest desire to help women find their bra size. Her article on caring for your bra is top-notch and offers sound advice to anyone even contemplating using the dryer on their intimate wear.
On the conventionally sweet side, the Chocolate-Chip Rum Bars recipe has made its way into my baking bookmarks since the photo alone was enough to make me salivate. Of course, my favorite part about the blog is the tone of voice and unique perspective it offers. There’s a witty, fun sense of humor coursing through each post that makes you feel as though you’re having a conversation instead of reading an article on the Internet. Blogger Sweets projects her warmth and makes you feel like you could enjoy some rum bars and coffee while discussing the latest and greatest lingerie from your favorite brand.
Enjoy! Or should I say: Bon appetit?
