To Make Your Thursday Better: Mean Girls Meets Disney

10:18 AM

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

12:20 PM

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…)

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

10:45 AM

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. It’s our modern form of meditation.  (more…)

If your life is anything like mine, all your life changing opportunities are presented at the worst times. The cute guy is standing beside you in the coffee line and you’re dressed like a bum, you get invited to the party/networking event of the century and you won’t have time to go home and change beforehand,   your pants rip on the way to your interview, or your heels already blistered your feet and your date with your future husband has just begun.

Note to Self: Put On Your Big Girl Panties.

12:07 PM

Dear ladies (and some European men):

Pay attention. Recall your routine as you prepare for a typical day. Your hair, face, outfit, shoes and accessories are all on point. There’s one thing you forgot. It may seem petty, and maybe you didn’t know or maybe you thought no one would notice, but guess what…we noticed. We, the world behind you, are staring…talking about “it.” “It” is the dreaded VPL: Visible Panty Line. (more…)
