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!

See you next week when the boys are back at school, a birthday is celebrated and my house has been restored to pre-holiday status, or at least I’m hoping it is.  Have a wonderful weekend!  What are some of your goals this year?  I’d love to hear them. 

Kate Spade’s “All In A Day’s Work” Wallet Love

Just a quick “Kate Spade Alert” on the “All In A Day’s Work” design in the Shannon wallet – Quick because I’m on-call for jury duty this week and have to drive to the court house given a 45 minute notice (have you ever heard of such a thing?) and am continuing with my nightly Photoshop intensive class, therefore I’ll have no baking goodies to share with you this week but one can always shop online at 2 AM, no?… [Read More]

Confessions of a …

That’s been me this past week. I confess to falling in love with Kate Spade’s “Bow Valley” bag when we first locked eyes this past Sunday in Fashion Island in Newport. Nordstrom’s being my first stop, I obsessed the rest of the day over this soft, buttery leather bag with a shiny patent half bow. The one thing I was obsessing about was the cost. Ugh. This is when I became a stalker. I saw the black version was on… [Read More]

Kate Spade’s Supercalifragilipstick! Review

When I found out Kate Spade was introducing lip color I was very excited to try it. I ordered 3 colors – Fuchsia Fete; Adventurous Red & Pop Art Pink. I loved the packaging. With the spring loaded case. In fact, when I opened the boxes the lipsticks sprang open. Surprise! I eventually would have figured out how to open the case but it was a nice introduction. But when you like the packaging over the lip color it’s a… [Read More]

Hell In A Handbasket vs. Handbags

My mother is turning over in her grave this morning.Jerry Brown is Governor once again. For the third time actually. My mom being Catholic believed the Jesuits would never kick anyone out of the order but she believed they kicked out Jerry Brown. I can’t understand his victory but as my wise friend said, the people that put him in office weren’t born when he was Governor or they don’t remember. And Barbara ‘Don’t Call Me Ma’am’ Boxer is an… [Read More]

Kate Spade’s ‘Twirl’ Fragrance

“Kate, you had me at ‘Twirl’.” I’m thoroughly captivated by this description ~ “Twirl opens with pink watermelon, blackberry and red currant; enhanced with a hint of fresh flowers including orange blossom, star jasmine, tiare flower and sweet magnolia, and finishes with luminous musk and a touch of French macaroon (straight from the patisserie, of course).” Ah, how scrumptious does this sound? ‘Twirl’ is the new Kate Spade fragrance and is available by pre-order for deliveryJuly 10.Free ground shipping. $18… [Read More]
