Happy Friday! I've had a long work week and am oh-so-ready for this weekend. I'm excited to spend the day with my family at TCU Parents Weekend for the little nugget. It feels weird to go to another college's football game, but the TCU horned frogs' colors are purple and white, so I think I can fit right in!

1. Katy Perry got a Russel Brand manicure. When it comes to manicure innovation, I thought I'd seen it all.. Apparently not. For Sunday's VMAs Katy Perry put her Russel Brand (her fiance) on her nails:
I feel weird about this. Its creative, and so her, but kind of odd. I wouldn't feel comfortable picking my nose with manfriend's face on my fingers. And if you're going on TV, you're sure to check for boogers...or I would. Weird.

2. Strap-on shoulder pads, REALLY? If you're really getting into the 1980's fashion renaissance, Jean Paul Gaultier and lingerie giant La Perla have come up with this for you:

Don't be distracted by the crotch sunburst. That's weird too.
It's a bra with shoulder pads. Just so you can get power shoulders no matter where you go. This item does not look comfy to me. There are more straps than I really know what to do with. What happened to the good, old fashioned sewn-in shoulder pads? I guess the beauty of this contraption is you can power those dudes up with any outfit! Hallelujah! As a side note, Jean Paul Gaultier originally designed Madonna's iconic cone bra. Has he had any new ideas since then? My prediction is that these bras will be at Nieman's Last Call by Christmas.

3. Penelope Cruz is 4 1/2 months pregnant! Sexy Spanish diva extraordinaire Penelope Cruz and her husband (who could be characterized the same way, but for a man), Javier Bardem are expecting their first baby! (Did anyone see Vicky Christina Barcelona? I assume their home live is as sexually charged as this entire move was...) They're combined DNA can only lead to a superspawn. Watch out Suri, hold on to your booties, Shiloh, there's a new baby in town who has the potential to out-cute the hell out of you. Rumors have been swirling for months that she has a bun in the oven, but they've confirmed! I love when fabulous and beautiful people have babies. Even more than that, I love children who speak other languages and have accents. I don't really know what it's about, but it always throws me for a loop when kids speak in other tongues. This little chimichanga of a baby is going to be freaking good looking...and a Spaniard. I. can't. wait.

4. The Democratic National Committee has uunveiled a new logo and tag line. I'm not sure why. This seems like a totally random move to me. They are really struggling to keep control of Washington this Fall, but it seems like a bizarre move. More weird than the new logo itself is all the press this unveiling got. On top of it all, its super boring:
I'm sorry, but there is pretty much no way to ever top a logo that includes a donkey. Donkeys don't get nearly enough attention these days. Long live the DNC donkey!

5. Quotes of the Week:
"What a diva! She was pathetic, she couldn't remember her lines, and she didn't even have that many. I thought to myself 'why are we all being held hostage by this brat?'" —Tim Gunn, on Taylor Momsen [E!]
Amen, soul sister. Glad she's been banished to the Gossip Girl suburbs.

"Yeah, I just saw her in a meat bikini, and I wanted to barbecue her ass. It was hot. I dug it." —John Stamos, on Lady Gaga's meat dress [MTV]  

John Stamos? John "Uncle Jess" Stamos? Where did he even come from? And what does that creepy BBQ remark mean? I feel weird. 

6. Puppy Party! Wednesday the Guinness Book of World Records named the world's smallest and tallest dogs! And they're BFF, or at least they will pose for a picture together. The smallest dog is Boo Boo, a 2 lb, 4-inch tall Chihuahua. The tallest is Giant George the Great Dane, who weighs 245 lbs and is 43 inches tall!

 The tiny Boo Boo eats just 1 tablespoon of food a day and is approx the size of a bagel. Giant George has his own queen-sized bed. Freaking cute! I wish so bad that I lived in NYC and me and the Prince could have gone to enjoy the event!

Have a magical weekend!


  1. Loved the amount of blogs this week. Thanks for the entertainment!!

  2. Thanks for reading friend, Miss you!

  3. The shoulder pad thing is scarey! I was hoping they would never come back! I totally agree with you and Mr. Gunn on Jenny. She totally annoyed me and I am glad she is gone. And your comment on donkey logos cracked me up!


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
