Are You A Betty or Veronica?

Saw this article in my favorite news source, the British Daily Mail – Femail Section.  Such a guilty pleasure of mine and so meaty, as they say, with absolutely nothing pertinent to add to one’s life.  That’s why I must visit multiple times a day.  Read it before going to bed to get the next day’s fresh gossip.  Just look at those Affleck kids growing up before our eyes amid trips to Starbucks.  They are so adorable!

Anyway, February 7 launches Mac’s line of Betty and Veronica colors of nail polish (shown below), lipsticks, eye shadows, blush and cosmetic brushes with hearts on them.  So whimsical and retro.  Makes me feel like I haven’t kissed a boy yet.

I loved reading the Archie comic books when I was around nine or ten.  Even at that age while I was coveting Veronica’s sleek hair style that shone blue and her daddy’s bank account, I knew I was a Betty – sweet, non-scheming, perky.  I hope I still possess some Betty traits.  I know I still covet Veronica’s sleek blue highlights.

Another covet item to come in February is Kate Spade’s polka dot Keds sneakers.


Not a clue as to how to wear them but that never stops me.  The pointy toes are another blast from my past.  My best friend’s mother wore pointy Keds in the sixties.  I think they were denim.  Last summer I bought a pair of Keds in red and white stripe seersucker.  Can you think of anything better?  Maybe the new Kate Spade’s.  Coming to Nordstrom and Kate Spade.


Gotta run to my Photoshop class.  Hoping to find an Archie to carry my laptop for me.

So, are you Betty or Veronica?  Do tell!

Tushie Cookies “Gone Wild”

  Is is possible to have a Tushie Cookie fetish?     If so, I guess I’ve been a bad, bad cookie dominatrix.     I whipped these up for our friends who invited us over for dinner who thought my regular tushie cookies were pretty funny when they saw a photo of them so I decided I had to raise the bar and create something edgier that they hadn’t seen before.  They have such a great sense of humor… [Read More]

Bridal Shower ‘Tushie Cookies’!

I can hardly believe I am saying this especially after my Granny Panties post last Friday, but I was totally inspired to make these cookies by the bridal “I Do” thong I gave my niece for one of her shower gifts this past weekend.   These aren’t your mama’s bridal shower cookies but they sure got a lot of laughs and attention! I made a few just for fun. I wrapped them up and told Jennifer, the bride, I made… [Read More]

“The Great White Granny Panties” {GIVE-AWAY} ;)

And why not?We need to take the white granny panties out of the closet and give them the respect they deserve! I was in Nordstrom the other day buying some bridal specific panties for my niece who is having a shower this weekend. They’re new and blue and say “I do”. Cute, but I couldn’t imagine anything less comfortable than a thong so I asked the sales person who seemed my age, what is so appealing about wearing basically nothing… [Read More]

“Someday My Prince Will Come”

Did you ever dream of being a Disney princess bride?Now you can be with the line of Disney princess bridal gowns. Which princess would you be?Preferences based primarily on dress design. The prince is a secondary consideration.Besides who remembers any princely potentials besides Aladdin? Ariel.They used to call this style ‘fish tail.’Now it’s ‘mermaid.’ Still something fishy about it to me.Personally, I think it makes every girl look like she’s packing a little more bait in the dorsal fin. But… [Read More]

Tea With The Queen

I’m feeling very silly today.Must be a hold-over from my childhood watching Saturday morning cartoons. Have you ever imagined you could have tea with the queen or be in a hot tub with Wills or Harry? Now you can! Well, that is if your fantasy includes William hot tubing in a suit and if you really, really use your imagination. Or… how about tea with your favorite movie star icon? “Will that be cream or sugar, Audrey?”“Your little black tea… [Read More]
