When Disney Does Vogue

23 Aug

Artist Dante Tyler has given the popular Disney Princess a couture makeover which reminds me of the actual supermodels, the glamerzons of the early to mid 90s. Back when Cindy Crawford, the Holy Trinity: Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and of course my fav of all time…Helena Christensen, ruled magazines and runways. Back in the day when you see supermodels on magazine covers not celebrities or reality show personalities. When models look like women not a young girl that might be on the verge to hitting puberty.


Songasm Of The Day

23 Aug

I can’t live without you
I love everything about you
I can’t help it if I feel this way

Oh I’m so glad I found you
I want my arms around you
I love to hear you call my name

Songasm Of The Day

22 Aug

I want to take you down by the river
Where you can watch me undress
I want to lay with you in the water
Naked, floating on sunlight

Float away with me
Float away with me

And in the waterfall, I explore you
I want to be your temptress
And as the cool cascade washes over
we fall into fire

Range Rover: Posh Edition

22 Aug

Victoria Beckham will be owner of her self-designed Range Rover Evoque. Victoria is now the official creative design executive for Land Rover. The interiors of the Evoque by them have been designed by her.

The car will be shipped to the US this fall, but there is no word of how many units or the cost either. A regular Range Rover Evoque costs $46,019.02 for the diesel, manual two-wheel drive version and the Si4 Dynamic coupé with six-speed auto and luxe pack goes up to $72,958.79. If you’re looking to buy the Victoria Beckham version of the Range Rover Evoque, expect something chic and high-end…basically Posh.

I’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you
And I almost believe that they’re real
I’ve been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are
All I can feel

Songasm Of The Day

Do You Remember
When We Fell In Love
We Were Young
And Innocent Then
Do You Remember
How It All Began
It Just Seemed Like Heaven
So Why Did It End?

Do You Remember
Back In The Fall
We’d Be Together
All Day Long
Do You Remember
Us Holding Hands
In Each Other’s Eyes
We’d Stare
(Tell Me)

Starbucks Secret Menu

17 Aug
Green Eye

A Red Eye or Black Eye, sure — that’s one and two extra shots of espresso in a regular drip, respectively. But those that go for green get a sure-to-jack-you-up three shots of espresso boost to their cup of coffee.

Dirty Chai

A chai latte (hot or iced) with a shot of espresso added in. And if you want two shots? That’s called a “Double Dirty” or “Extra Dirty” Chai.

Zebra Mocha

Sometimes also called a “Penguin Mocha,” this drink combines the white chocolate mocha with the regular mocha for those who can’t pick a favorite. Or, if you really want to take it to the next level, ask to have raspberry flavoring added for something called the “Red Tux” Mocha.

Chocolate Dalmation

 White Chocolate Mocha with java chips and chocolate chips sprinkle in.

Captain Crunch Frappuccino

 No, this doesn’t involve bringing the childhood-favorite cereal into the store and asking them to blend it in a frappe. Still, fans say that the combination of hazelnut syrup (though some folks contend it should be toffee nut) in a Strawberries and Creme Frappuccino is a dead ringer for the flavor of the cereal.

"Short" Drink

 The Tall drink’s smaller, less expensive younger brother.

French Press

 Apparently if you ask, Starbucks will brew any of the coffee they sell in a French Press.

Super Cream Frappuccino

 Like to go heavy on the whipped cream? Ask for a “Super Cream” version of your Frappe and you’ll get half a cup of whipped cream blended in

Affogato Style Frappuccino

This one probably classifies more as an in-the-know than a “secret” one. Order any Frappe “affogato-style” and you’ll get a shot of hot espresso added on top of your drink as opposed to having it blended in.

Triple C's

 And the award for best alliteration in a Starbucks drink name goes to the Three C’s: Cinnamon Dolce Latte with caramel syrup and chocolate mocha syrup.

Biscotti Frappuccino

 This off-the-menu item sounds a little like a Starbucks version of a DQ Blizzard or a McFlurry, except you have to have to buy a package of biscotti cookies separately and ask your barista to blend them into your Frappe. Note: There seems to be some contention online as to whether or not baristas are actually allowed to put biscotti in the blender, so maybe only ask someone you know is willing to do you a favor.

Cake Batter Frappuccino

 Perhaps a little deceptively named, as there are no actual pieces of cake or cake batter in it, this beverage vanilla and almond syrup to a Vanilla Frappuccino.
