To Make Your Thursday Better: Mean Girls Meets Disney

As I was reading my daily dose of Cupcakes and Cashmere I came across this amazing YouTube video of the Disney Princesses “acting out” the preview to Mean Girls. I’m sure as with most girls, there are two things in life that are a necessity:

  1. 1. Quoting Mean Girls on a daily basis
  2. 2. Feeling as if you have a personal relationship with every Disney Princess because, of course, we grew up together. For the record, Belle and Jasmine are my two favorite!

I may be late to the game in seeing this amazing video, but I had to share anyway. After all, nothing is better than Mean Girls and Disney Princesses!

Who’s your favorite Disney Princess?

[Confused] Reactions to the MTV Video Music Awards

My Sunday evening was dedicated to the interesting events that took place at the MTV Video Music Awards…minus the hour I took to watch Breaking Bad. I’m so very grateful for the hour-long, necessary break that kept me jaw-dropped, gasping at my TV (the BB fans know what I’m talking about) and no, not because of Miley Cyrus.

As I sat and watched the VMA’s with my parents, who were as confused as I was, I can only imagine the look on my face the entire time, minus the *NSYNC reunion, naturally. Here are some of my thoughts of last night’s show. (more…)

I Know What Girls Like: How to Impress Your Lady on Date Night

This one is for the boys who are trying to impress the ladies. Hopefully by now you’ve worked your charm and you got that pretty young thing to agree to go on a date with you. You won her over with your personality and mutual interests, but you need to keep impressing her. She’s going to want to see how dynamic you are and how you flourish in different settings.

Basically, we women, notice details and we’re using them to judge you. While we’re enjoying the moment with you, we’re also trying to determine what a future with you would be like (whether its short term or long term). Your first impressions are vital, so you better dress to the nines and open doors for us – chivalry is NOT dead.  (more…)

Must Be 18 or Over…To Buy Nail Polish Remover?

It’s not unusual to hear that you need to be of a certain age or older to purchase cigarettes, alcohol and other obvious items. It makes sense to have an age limit regarding alcohol/cigarettes because, clearly, we don’t want young teens waltzing into a store buying cases of beer and cartons of cigarettes However, should there really be an age limit on buying nail polish remover?

It’s been reported by the New York Post and various online sources that CVS drugstores will be asking for proper identification when purchasing a bottle (note: there is a two bottle per-day limit) of acetone nail polish remover. (more…)

The Art of Dancing the Night Away and Winning Over Hugh Jackman

The end of the week has finally arrived and you’re ready to let loose and let off some steam.  You’re going to get dolled up just so you can go sweat it all off on the dance floor.  Guys don’t understand that, despite the dim lights of the night life scene, and their preference for “natural beauty” (you know the guys who say they don’t like makeup but think Kim Kardashian is hot…um, what?)  that half the fun of going out is the ritual of applying the war paint to our faces and picking outfits in preparation for potentially running into Hugh Jackman on the dance floor.
