The Most Moist Banana Bread | Welcome to a new friend: Mercedes

 Wishful Whisking

A girl living in Santa Barbara who finds joy in the kitchen, traveling the world, beautiful interiors, beauty, art and fashion!


Hello! I’m Mercedez!

Growing up with a baking, pink-loving, antique-obsessed Mother, I quickly acquired a deep love for beautiful details.

I have a passion for delicious food with quality ingredients, cooking for my boyfriend, interior design, restoring old things to new, fashion, beauty, hobnail dishes, and baking for people.

I am convinced that happiness can be found in things such as: fresh flowers, a pair of incredible shoes, an effortless cat eye, finding something you love at an antique store, and a pie in the oven. It is all these little things combined that spark my creativity, bring me happiness and inspire me to be the best version of myself. I hope my perspective, trials, adventures, and ideas can inspire you to live the best life possible!


Simple things that make me, me.

I am 22 years old.

 I have a degree in business administration.

 I am addicted to Chipotle – I want it everyday no exceptions.

 I drink vanilla lattes and Diet Coke WAY more than water.

 My Mom is my best friend.

 I have a boyfriend. His name is Nathan and he is more than wonderful. He answers to: Chip, Bunny, Boo Boo, and Noodle.

 I collect hobnail glass, dishes and hoard cups.

 I watch terribly depressing TV shows like Intervention, Cops, and Law and Order SVU.

 I love baking pies.

 I have a Chihuahua. His real name is Laurent but he has not been called that since the day we got him. He has taken on the following names: Raunt, Raunty, Louis, Naked Louis, Lupus, Ronis, Roodie and Ronet. I am a freak but I believe one of my love languages is nick names.

 I spend hours doing my hair but always end up putting it in a top knot.

 I am obsessed with interior design, fashion, hair, and makeup.

I just have to say that I am so over the lace crop top trend. It has been done far too often and, honestly, I am ready for the trend to expire. However, when lace is worn right, there is nothing better. I am a total sucker for clothes that remind me of the 60’s. Something about that period of fashion is so perfect and timeless to me. I love the poofy hair, cat eyes and bold florals that are so emblematic of the groovy era. Whenever I find clothing reminiscent of that time I pounce! I know this top is tame, but it’s the cut reminds me of the 60’s. The daisies are sweet and ladylike and the lace pattern is an interesting added detail. Did I mention I am also a TOTAL sucker for daisies? Another reason why I just love this shirt! For this look, pair it with simple skinny jeans, navy ankle boots, milk maid braids and a berry stained lip. This top is completely season neutral. It would be adorable with daisy dukes but also works perfectly for fall with these ankle boots! I hope you are all enjoying your Saturday!

Continue on to see my outfit of the day!

Chicken Soup with Avocado, Lime and Feta

 Almost nothing is better than a hearty bowl of soup on a cold fall day. I also happen to think that avocado, lime and feta cheese make any meal 100 times better. Combine these two simple truths and we get something truly divine. Chicken soup with lime, avocado and feta. Wow! It’s almost too good for words. Make the soup, enjoy the September breeze and you won’t regret it. Happy Sunday!
