A 1500 Squid Diet.

Ariel’s nemesis has used some of that Sea Witch magic to transform herself. The formerly full-figured biatch of the sea is now a svelte & sultry villain–if you are into that whole Cruella de Vil look. Seriously, she looks bears an uncanny resemblance to the pooch poaching monster…(see for yourself below)

As part of Disney’s new Villains Designer Collection, Ursula has got her slim fast on shedding nearly 2/3s of her body weight. According to Disney, each villain is “designed and carefully crafted to capture the essence of evil at its best dressed.” Whether it was necessary to put the sea witch on a diet is something up for debate (we liked the full figured Ursula better–you just dont mess with the classics!), but Ursula isn’t the first cartoon character to get a slim-down in recent years. Strawberry Shortcake shed the “extra” pounds, grew out her hair & grew up last year & even My Little Pony cut back on the hay for a slimmer look….yes, the pony REALLY was forced to slim down…

But, whatever your argument or position on the “thinning” of cartoon characters, the collection merits a look. The Disney Villains Designer Collection will be available this fall & each villain with be available for purchase at $79.50.

Heart your Body, Heart your Country! A July 4th Retrospective.

Now that the fireworks, barbeques, and boozin are over–its time to look back on Independence Day–the actual day, not the movie–though if you were “fortunate” enough to catch a replay for the 5000 time in your life–we’re in the same boat! Though through this latest viewing, I did realize one thing new about aliens: even they are respectful enough to acknowledge, American holidays…& i’m still left asking the question why Bill Pullman never ran for president…

When I wasn’t watching Independence Day, I spent my day in the kitchen making boozy (non)milkshakes and vegan/gluten free flag cake or blowing sh*t up!

 

So, while I scarf down the rest of the flag cake for lunch, I figured I’d  follow the old kindergarten adage of sharing is caring & share the recipe for the Boozy (non)Milkshake:

  • 3/4 a cup Vanilla unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 pint So-Delicious Cherry Amaretto Coconut Milk Ice Cream
  • 4 tablespoons (1 shot & a quarter) of Patron XO

Blend, baby, Blend!

Matthew McConaughey FINALLY gets paid to do what he loves in Magic Mike…

 

Yesterday, June 29, was for all purposes proclaimed Magic Mike Day. And while, the movie was a HUGE step forward in a woman’s right to objectify men, it was also a BIG day for Matthew McConaughey. He finally garnered a paycheck for doing what he’s loved to do all these years. Not acting, BUT taking off his shirt. And while going to see Magic Mike is comparable to being in a room filled with cupcakes & told you can’t eat one–also like cupcakes, it is best devoured alone & in shame–I thought we should celebrate Matty’s accomplishment & take a look at some of the times he has taken his shirt off for free…

 

So, congratulations Matthew. Maybe now you can afford to buy a shirt–or not, whatever…

Let’s STREAK!

Not that way, naughty you!

Summer HAIR streaks are all the rage this season. Celebs like Brooklyn Decker, January Jones, and Nicole Richie are dying portions of their hair different hues of pink, lavender, & blue. After keeping an envious eye on this trend–how come all the blondes get to have fun with pink classy streaks while brunettes dare I say risk looking trashy?, I decided to try it out! Using colored extensions in favor of actual hair dye, I used a blue hue (confession: i’ve been holding onto these extensions for 3+ years waiting for this trend to actualize) Here are the four hair styles I wore with the extensions–there are PLENTY of options out there. So go streaking, & have fun!

 

GUIDE TO A TOP KNOT.

A Dapper Don…McDonalds, that is.

Would you like some old fashion with that order?

My wildest dreams already came true when Burger King announced its endeavor to serve liquor out of select stores–though a failed attempt…it brought Miami one step closer to the drive-thru daiquiri establishments found throughout Louisiana. & while I’d prefer that Mickey D’s  be serving up some Old Fashions a la Mad Men, the fast food chain has decided, in turn, to offer up some old “new” fashion.

McDonalds–UK (those fashion forward Brits), have decided it is time for an outfit change. & who better to look to then one of America’s (fictional) leading men for inspiration: Don Draper.

Yes, Don is a misogynistic, alcohol-dependent, bad boy–maybe that is why I love him so much. But, that has no bearing on his style. AND, there’s no denying that, that man can wear a suit!

The new McDonalds uniforms pay tribute to Mad Men & the 1960’s mod movement, according to designer, Wayne Hemingway of Red or Dead. His collection replaces the bulky cuts of former uniforms with skinny ties and Fred Perry-esque piped button downs for men. While the women’s uniform features Peter Pan collars & pencil skirts!

And, if these uniforms prove one thing, its that: fashion really does come full circle: the uniforms are completely recyclable! Eventually, each discarded uniform will be made into a new set of dapper duds.

Now, if only Ronald McDonald & the Hamburgler could get a style revolution…We’d love to see them in some Roger Sterling or Pete Campbell duds.

MIAMI is feeling the HEAT!

A Heat wave hit Miami last night…& as the clock during the final game of the NBA finals hit 0:00 & Lebron James thought, “it’s about damn time.”–Miami got out their pots & pans. Yes, only in Miami, do we use pots & pans as noise makers in celebration–a curious historical evolution as pots & pans were once used during rebellions, riots, & well, cooking…

AND, while the rest of Miami was focused on gathering their pots & pans in preparation for the game, I took the time to change into my favorite Miami Heat shirt or tank…purple heart clothing ‘s Wade tank top featuring non other than Marilyn Monroe in a #3 Dwayne Wade jersey!

If you’d like to get one of your own or to check out the other colors & styles, click here.

& celebrate in style.

It’s “Facebook Official”

No need for horoscopes or tarot cards, the social media “guru” site “creeps” into your another part of your life–your love life & decodes the stats.

The site has recently released an info graphic on its user’s relationship tendencies studying everything from when the majority of people enter and exit relationships to how many people share a photo of them and their honey as their profile picture. & yes, they’ve even analyzed those god awful songs that we listen to while “honeymooning” or later while coating our pint of Ben Jerrys with our tears.

It seems the only thing they haven’t studied in this love infographic is our love-hate relationship with them.

1-cute sundress
