5 AWESOME FASHION MUST HAVES FOR ST. PATTYS DAY MADNESS

[ 2 ] March 15, 2013 |

Top O’ the mornin’ to ya (that’s “good morning” in leprechaun, P.S.).  Today is a BIG weekend for a lot of you. I used to rage pretty hard on St. Patty’s day weekend-

It started with early a.m. breakfast and shots, followed by mid morning shots, followed by the “mixing of the beverage” (AKA let’s make a crazy drink that’ll get us wasted but look like green kool-aid), followed by the “assume your position” which took place at the parade zone and included incessant imbibing.  Immediately following, we had the ol’ “dance your pants off” competition in one of the local bars, which was later followed by early evening drinking, small snack, mid evening drinking, “holy crap it’s midnight and I’m still drinking” drinking, ending with the following morning.  Whereby you’d wake up laying on your kitchen floor with a cracker in one hand, and a roller skate in the other.  Oh, those were the days. Here’s to lookin’ your best when your actin’ a mess this weekend:

 5 fashions for st pattys

This Chunky Green Scarf via Happiknits:  There’s a solid chance you’re going to lose your coat somewhere along the way.  This baby will keep you from getting frostbite, while also ensuring you look super St. Patty’s Day cute.  And, if you’re lucky enough to have a toasty St. Patty’s day (suck it Florida!), it’ll make a great sling for the contraband you’ll be trying to smuggle outta the bar.  Find it:  here for $79 bucks.

Chunky Green Scarf

This multi-talented Flask via Shot Flask: A flask with a secret hiding shot glass?  This is the perfectest St. Patty’s parade day accessory ever made.  All of the other lil’ leprechauns will be so jealous or your super sweet spy gear.  Find it: here for $25 bucks

shot flask

These cute Crochet Boot Cuffs in Emerald Green via Wanelo:  I don’t care what anyone says, I’m still hopelessly obsessed with leg warmers and boot socks. And, these green lil’ numbers will rock your…uh….socks off? Don’t be alarmed if you find them floating around in your bathtub post St. Patty’s celebrating.  Legwarmers have a habit of doing that.   Find em’ here:  for $34 bucks

Green Boot Socks

These mermaid-y nails:  These days, you can be-dazzle just about everything (including your super secret lady regions!)  So, there’s no excuse to have boring nails on the most exciting day of the year.  Find yourself some green nail polish and some sequins and wrap those babies around an ice-cold pint of Guinness.  You’ll be a total celeb.  Find out how to do it:  here.

Green Nails

This gorgeous Maja Fringe Crossbody Bag via Little Black Bag:  I am in LUST with this bag.  And, take it from me – If you’re gonna be walking around the streets of your city aimlessly for the next several hours, your gonna need a function bag that screams “hey girl, haiiiiiii”.  This bag is perfect for lookin’ rockin’ and stashing all of the stuff you’ll accidentally steel throughout the night.  Find it: here

Green Fringe Crossbody

 

And, that pretty much covers it.  Have a blast and be safe!

P.S.  Check out these goats.  The hubby and I have been laughing at these for days.

5 AWESOMELY DELISH VALENTINE’S DAY GIFTIES

[ 2 ] February 4, 2013 |

I’m in the moooood for looooooove!  Ten days until Valentines Day my little love-muffins!  I’ve been suffering from a lethal case of “writer’s block” recently, but am finding myself uber-dee-duber inspired this lovely Monday.  So much so that I apparently just said “uber-dee-duber”…whatever that means. Anyway, in honor of the most disgustingly sweet “holiday” of the year, I thought it fitting to share some gift ideas for your love popsicle’s belly.  Prepare to buy like 40 million of each.

GIANT HEART SLUTTY BROWNIE via Bake All the Things:  Dear fantastic maker of slutty brownies: If you require I become a disgusting slut in order  to  indulge in your JUMBO Chocolate Chip Cookie Oreo Chocolate Fudge brownie bar, I’m totally in.  Love always & forever until eternity, me.  Find it:  here (for $60 bucks) or hook yourself up with the “mini” version (4 large brownies here for $16 bucks)!

LOVEBIRDS & HEARTS Iced Sugar Cookies via Old Time Favorites:  I couldn’t be more in love with any other birdie shaped cookie.  These are the sweetest, itty-bitty lil’ sugar cookies I’ve ever seen ever.  I’ll be ordering 17 dozen to myself, with a note that says “You’re the skinniest person on the planet, and can totally eat all 204 of these cookies without gaining one single pound“.  Yup.  That’s gonna happen.  Find yours:  here (3 dozen for $17.95).

MY HEART BEATS FOR YOU Brownie Truffles by Q’s Goodies: It’s not on the one.  It’s not the mambo.  It’s a feeling; a heartbeat.  Oh, Johnny Castle , I would gladly stop my own heart if you promise to resuscitate me with these truffles.  Find em:  here (1 dozen for $16 bucks).

HOT PINK RASPBERRY White Chocolate Ganache French Macarone via Le Bonbon, Los Angeles:  In case you were wondering, I lose all morals and etiquette when faced with a French Macarone.  They render me stupid and, well, gross (if we’re being honest).   Macarones are kinda like, really awesome.  Find these ones:  here (1 dozen for $21 bucks).

CHOCOLATE COVERED ESPRESSO BEANS via Apropos Roasters:  Technically, these adorable hand-stamped bags-o-beans are “party favors”, but I say that every day is a party so why not send 10 of these to your fave? He (or she) will thank you sexually, with a nice hug.  Find em:  here (10 baggies for $30 bucks).

Good luck trying not to order 1 of each for yourself too.  And, don’t forget to place your orders, like super soon-ish so your lover-bee doesn’t miss out. Tootles!

5 AWESOMELY NAUGHTY REWARDS FOR BEING A HEALTHY FREAK

[ 1 ] January 18, 2013 |

Happy Friday!  Today I’m gonna share 5 awesome reasons to be healthy & exercise.  Wait.  What????  No seriously.  This one’s good.  I didn’t say the reasons themselves were 100% healthy.  I mean, they wouldn’t be handsome rewards of they were.  These babies are your figurative “end of the tunnel”.  That fabulously fit place you are desperately trying to reach…Rewards help.  Especially the naughty ones.

Sooooo, set yourself a healthy life schedule (I just re-set mine for the 4 thousandth time this year) and plan in a couple of pit-stops for rewarding.  If you can’t enjoy life..(and an oh-so-bad-it’s good treat ever now and then) that would suck. Just remember to reward in moderation.  Have one serving and savor every bite.   No one’s going to take it from you so there’s no need to act like a ravenous bear.  Just enjoy…be healthy…repeat.

P.s.  All of the shops below ship nationwide….just sayin’.

BUTTER + LOVE:  I’ve had the pleasure of tasting these sweet, buttery jam sandwich cookies in more than one of my subscription boxes (insanely huge directory of subscription boxes here!).  They are A-MAZE.  So good.  Melt in your mouth and totally reward-worthy. Try all the flava-flaves:  Marionberry Rosemary Sea Salt, Raspberry Lemon, Strawberry balsamic marjoram, & Blackberry Lime.  The gingerbread mustaches are reallllly good too (Find the goods:  here for $5.50 a pack. Boom!)

SWEET SPELL:  These Red Velvet & Chocolate cakes look SO good and are perfect for my vegan buds.  I’m sorta obsessed with anything in a jar.  Plus, I mean…just look at it.  It really looks like it’s so naughty which is the perfect fuel to work-out like your life depended on it.  Sounds like a win to me (find em:  herethe Sweet Spell Sampler comes with 2 cakes and a dozen cookies for $30 bucks). BONUS:  Go vegan in the new year!  Get 25% off.  Enter VEGAN25 at checkout.  Yey!

240 SWEET: Let me start off by saying that I thought I hated marshmallows.  Then, I got a package of the Chocolate Ganache marshmallows from 240 SWEET in my Hammockpack and realized I FREAKING LOVE MARSHMALLOWS!  Oh. My. Goodness.  These things are the cats pajamas…the bees knees.  I realize those phrases make zero sense, but you get my drift.  They Rock, in every way possible.  I’m in love. Check out their super-unique flavors here (for $6.25 & up).

BAKED BY MELISSA: These itty bitty cupcakes are inspired by good ole’ fashioned 1960′s and 70′s Rock & Roll.  They are so tiny (like the size of a quarter-ish) so that you (and me) can taste a bunch of different flavors without feeling like a sloth.  LOVE this concept and love how fun these kick-ass cupcakes look to eat.  Sign me up.  I’ll take 4 million (of each flavor).  Find em:  here (starting at 3$ bucks & up, minimum required for nationwide delivery).

WHIMSY & SPICE:  First of all, I wanna shout out to Brooklyn (holla!) – no seriously – Brooklyn produces some of the coolest art, products & tasties and it needs to be said.  Brooklyn, you are my hero.  Now, on to Whimsy & Spice – holy cow, their brownies are insane.  Like, lock me up in an institution and fill my cell with brownies insane.  And, they have lots of other treats as well (cookies, marshmallows, hot cocoa…you get the drift).  I got to try these through another one of my subscription boxes (click here for my HUGE subscription box directory) and, in case you didn’t get the memo…these things blow my mind.   Find yours:  here (prices vary).

And, well…there you have it.  A detailed list of what is inspiring me to be healthy & fit this month.  Clearly, I have issues.

What’s inspiring you?

Fatty, out.

Happy Friday fellow beer lovers!   If you didn’t get the memo, today is National Drink Beer Day and I’m already wasted!  Whoo hoo!  Just kidding.  I’m drunk with emotion, really.  As my diet doesn’t really allow for drinking beer until I pass out.  And, well..let’s be honest.  I haven’t gotten “wake up on your floor with a cracker in your mouth in a gorilla suit drunk” in forevs.  Nonetheless, I will be having a couple sippy-sips of my faves tonight in honor of this fabulous holiday and in memory of my wild and crazy youth.  Here’s 5 things I’m inspired by today:

BEER CAP FLOWER – “Bloom…” – Mixed Media Assemblage on Salvaged Wood (approx 5 1/4″ X 6″):  Um, who doesn’t love flowers and inspirational quotes made out of beer caps? Drink some Sam Adams while repeating the quote 5 times fast?  Drinking game.  Boom.  Find it:  here (for $24 bucks)

 

 

 

 

 

Drink responsibly my awesome loves!  Which means,  don’t even think about friending your ex-boss on Facebook later.  You’ll thank me in the morning.  Beer RULES!

IT’S TIME FOR A LIST OF AWESOME STUFF BOYS LIKE!

[ 0 ] September 14, 2012 |

Happy Birthday to my hubby!  In honor of his birth, I thought I’d write a post about stuff boys like.  All in all, boys are pretty cool.   It’s hit or miss on the smells.  They either bathe in cologne, or forget how to shower.  But, for the most part, they’re pretty awesome.   Lately, I’ve been getting some pretty great feedback from the opposite sex regarding my hot bod…just kidding…about my blog – but it all has the same sorta theme:  “I could do without the girly products and stuff, but I laughed my ass of when you wrote about….”.  I feel honored!   So, I figured today was as good a day as any to show em’ a lil’ lovin’ back by poppin’ off a couple of awesomes that are fit for dudes of all shapes, sizes, races, colors and creeds (what the H is a “creed” anyway?).  Don’t worry girlfriends.  Normal, girl-ish stuff coming back on Monday.

Number-o One:  Werd

Werd is pretty awesome if you have man parts.  Or, if you have lady parts, but wanna get the coolest gift ever (like these Guinness Brownies) for your fave guy.  Werd showcases the “best new gear for men”, which is broken down for you gerber-style in categories (like tech, gear, wear, host, media, ride, space, groom, sport & escape).  Say that 5 times fast.  You can also peruse it in blog format if your handy on the internets  like my hubby. I for one, plan on buying these brownies  to celebrate my man’s birthday.  Of course I’ll  be wasted after the face-stuffing, so there will be no time to wallow in my fat-misery (just kidding, diet).  Find it:  here.

Numeral II:  Bespoke Post “Box of Awesome” (no seriously.  That’s what it’s called!)

Okay men.  Let’s not pretend that you aren’t majorly jealous of all the subscription boxes out there for the ladies.  Well, sirs..be jealous no longer.  As far as boxes for dudes go,  this one is pretty cool.  Unlike most of the lady subscription boxes, the Box of Awesome from Bespoke Post hooks you up with stuff “you’ve never heard of” made by emerging craftsmen and designers and such.  Best part? You don’t have to commit.  BINGO!  Each month they tell you what’s comin’ your way, and you can choose to take it, or skip it.  For $45 bucks a month, this is a pretty good deal.  Check out August’s “Alchemy” box (pictured above) filled with everything you need for your man-cave-bar-thingy.  Find it:  here

Numba 3 Skinny Fatties

If you haven’t heard, skinny is the new fatty – ONLY when it comes to ties.  Otherwise, all, shapes, sizes and curves are in, FYI.  Thanks to the peeps at PureWOW for bringing this genius/company service into my life. If you are in to rockin’ the skinny tie and have a bunch of largies you’re lookin’ to thinify, Skinny Fatties is your new best guy friend. Do guys even say that?  $30 buck investment.  Do it.  Find em’:  here.

4-score and seven years ago…(four, duh): Dollar Shave Club

Dolla, dolla shave ya’ll.  “Like most good ideas, Dollar Shave Club started with two guys who were pissed off about something and decided to do something about it…“  Any company that has an “about” section that starts with that sentence is pimpdiddy pimp in my eyes!  Whether you’re a wooly mammoth, or just your average dude that has to shave every now and then, do your ladies delicate skin a favor and hook yourself up with Dollar Shave Club.  For as little as one doll-hair ($1) per month, you can get super awesome razors to shave your man hairs, and you won’t have to put sticky notes all over your house to remember to buy more.  Done, and done.  Find it:  here (if anything, just check out the video on their home page.  Hilarious.) Oh, yeah.  Almost forgot.  Thanks to my friend Sesquille for the hook up on this one.  He is in fact an international man of mystery and leisure, so I wouldn’t expect anything less.

Last, but not leastly (5): Imaginary Foundation

Who doesn’t like a good T-shirt?  Especially boys. Just look at Simon Cowell.  That guy has two outfits.  Casual, which includes an all white T-shirt and jeans, and fancy-pants which includes an all black tee and jeans.   Anyway, my hubby just purchased 2 T-shirts from these peeps (shown above), so naturally I had to include them today since it’s his birthday and all.  You probably have to get a PhD to understand what these t-shirts even mean. Thankfully, they have shirts with swear words for us peasants.   Find yours:  here.

 

Happy Friday!!
