Sometimes I see so much in people that I have to document it. When I think of the long way they’ve come since the days of Full House, I can’t help but be amazed at what Mary Kate and Ashley have achieved.
As usual- illustration is by me.
>Not many of you know but I’m a beginner cupcaker. I like everything about them- the taste, the fact they come in such small individual portions and off course the fact that they start off pretty plain looking and let themselves be decorated. It’s safe to say that cupcakes are my favorite little bundles of joy (as I’m not planning to have babies anytime soon).
These little cups of cake are chocolate and mint. I ordered a cupcake kit that included a pastry bag and I decided to give it a go and decorate them fancily. Did I do a good job? I think so. Am I planning to do it again? absolutely.
Chocolate and Mint cupcakes (yields 12-14 cupcakes)
**Double the amounts of the frosting if you like to cover all of the top of the cupcake in frosting. As I don’t like having a ton of frosting on my cupcakes- I use the amount stated above and I give all the cupcakes little frosting “hats” rather than covering the entire surface.
Last step: stick the chocolates in the yum! Om nom nom!
>This one time, when I was a wee little version of today’s Synthetic, albeit no less elegant, I enjoyed playing dress up with a friend of mine. This might come as a shock to you when I’ll say it was a female friend. Let’s just say I have learned my lesson since.
During a dress up session of little SE and her friend M, SE wore a polka-dot sundress that was bought for her by her ever so chic grandma. M could not wear any of SE’s clothes and got stuck wearing her uninspired Ballerina costume due to a slight baby fat problem. Looking back at this- not being able to wear SE’s chic Naf-Naf dresses have probably made M feel even more frustrated. Subsequently, M deemed the polka dot dress unfashionable.
I wonder what M thought about Natalie Portman’s vintage Dior Oscars dress being auctioned and sold for a 5 figure sum. Would it make her eat not only chocolate cake but also her words?
Now M works at McDonald’s, taking the bus to work every day.
So yeah, Natalie Portman’s dress is today’s Pretty Friday. It’s pretty, elegant and also timeless.
If you are looking for a moral to my story, it’s don’t ever question the relevance of polka dots.
