It is a travesty! I can’t believe I never posted these pictures after the big fuss I made about my party!
This was definitely this best party I have ever had; well accept maybe my 21st 😉
All the special people in my life were there and it truly was memorable.
This is the dessert table decorated before the desserts were laid out.
Here’s the recipe for the Torte. Heads up its definitely an advanced recipe http://www.tarteletteblog.com/2008_10_01_archive.html
My party hat! From Paper Nosh
Ok I’m giving away a huge secret here! This is my favorite website . This is where I got my Halloween costume. I don’t usually tell people about this because I like being original and if everyone knew about I wouldn’t be. People on the West Coast may laugh at me and say this is no secret, but us East Coasters are missing out. Don’t be fooled by the name, everything is custom-made. Most Girls Next Door costumes are from here, they do tons of movies. I’m pretty sure Christina Aguilar’s new movie Burlesque uses costumes from there. I am totally getting my wedding lingerie from here 😉 P.s . I accept gifts
Here are some highlight:
Ok so I’m not kidding this is a big deal for me to share! Let me know how you like the site!
So its a big birthday this year and I want it to be extra special. I’m sending out invitations to make it more personal. Please help me pick the best one. I will post a poll to follow
It’s my favorite holiday! I’m jam packing my weekend full of events and it’s important to me to look spot on and fabulous. I’m about to start getting ready so I decided to post a video from YouTube on how I’m going to do my makeup. It is the Barbie loves Mac look. This isn’t the best video, but honestly it’s the only one I could find that I like and showed the proper look.
I want these so bad but only in my dreams right! These earrings were Marie Antoinette’s. After her execution, Duchess Tatiana Yousupoff of Russia acquired them. Then in 1928, jewelry Pierre Cartier obtained them. They had never been reset at this point. In the same year, Cartier gave them to some rich chick I am extremely jealous of, Marjorie Merriweather Post. Following this in 1959, Harry Winston reset them in Platinum versus the original silver setting and Cartier designed the triangle tops. In 1964 Post’s daughter donated them to the Smithsonian.
Qvc and The Smithsonian teamed up to recreate legendary jewelry pieces, and I so thought these magnificent earring would be one. I know replicas have been made; not from real diamonds of course, but they are no longer available to my knowledge. If anyone knows if they are, or are available for purchase please let me know! Until then I will hold my breath for these Kenneth Jay Lane ones.
I discovered this brand in a quaint shop in Charleston, Sc and originally fell in love with the packaging, but the scents are amazing. First, this perfume my MOR Cosmetics it’s titillating!
It has notes of vanilla musk and jasmine flower. Don’t be fooled by the name, it does not smell like candy. Actually, originally the candy marshmellows were made with the delicate marshmallow flower.
Tokyo Milk is my new obsession. No joke I plan on buying the whole line and decoratingmy bathroom with the packaging; it’s just that cute. As you know I love Marie Antoinette, so I have my eye out for this “let them eat cake” bon bon lipgloss:
Check out the whole line. The site really has some cute, different things. Take for example this stationary:

This will be the first of many posts about Marie Antoinette. Ever since I visited Versailles when I was younger and saw the grandeur of the of the palace, I have been fascinated by the glitz and glamor of the French royalty, mainly Marie Antoinette.
Girlfriend has got a bad rep… I will save the history lesson, but just know that she and Louis XVI inherited a terrible debt left by their predessor. The were doomed from the start. And just to let you know it is not true that Marie Antoinette said ” Let them eat cake.”
Although there wasn’t Perezhilton.com back then, there were still gossip columns and this was one piece of gossip that spread to infamy.
