Sweet Nothing du Jour: 7/22/12

Virtuously trying to write and research deep-thinking, soul-enriching stuff, hindered by mimosa-induced brain fog and certain distractions: Oooh, I could paint my nails! Oooh, a cat! Get off the coffee table, cat! Oooh, Captain America! Bleeeugh, Carlos the Waiter.  You and your mango mimosas are false friends. Read more…

Chocolate Crack (um, Crack-Up, rather) Cookies

My lingerie and lady-business posts vastly outnumber my recipes at this point, but even so, the recipes are embarrassingly choco-centric. I can’t help it, chocolate is my drug of choice.

Notella.  Delicious for purposes of eating straight from the jar with a spoon.  Less felicitous in ice cream.

Sweets’ Nutella Ice Cream

It started with this article from the Hairpin making the rounds in my newsfeed.  Nutella, you and I have been apart for far, far too long.  And then I realized I hadn’t made ice cream in a while, either, and lo, it was already mid-July, and I was wasting the summer, and then I realized […] Read more…

Brand Introduction: Miss Mandalay

I think it’s safe to say that a bra by Miss Mandalay changed my life.  This is what made my jaw drop when I first discovered Bravissimo: It was a revelation: bright and girly colors, sheer mesh, lace, ruffles, and bows.  I’d been wearing beige Wacoal bras with the elastic all shot to hell (because […] Read more…
