SWEETEN UP WITH JOY THE BAKER
Self-taught culinarian. Biweekly beach bum. Red-lip rover.
Beautiful aroma: I'd love to turn freshly baked bread into an everyday fragrance. Or maybe brownies. Wait—banana bread might be nice....
Beautiful creation: My cherry pie. And my big orange cat, although I guess I didn't really create him!
Beauty hoard: Berry-colored lip stains.
Beauty destination: Malibu. I make sure to get off my computer and hit the beach at least twice a week. It's a complete luxury.
Beautiful attitude: I feel blessed with every new day of living!
