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!
