The Glamour Girl and Her Whiskey

_DSC7982

During a recent shoot with photographer Greg Easton I was myself in all aspects, and had such a blast! Glitzy, glam, fashion-y, booze, and over exposed images that made me feel like a Terry Richardson starlet. Also, if you dig my style and versatility, check out my Tumblr, GlamourGirlsandWhiskey !

Recipe Monday: Corona Cupcakes

20121119-191817.jpg

Right after I found this recipe on Pinterest I knew it was one I’d have to try! And did I! This delectable dessert caters to all my booze loving friends and Ofcourse, myself. The recipe is decently easy and the frosting is seriously heaven; it completely makes the dessert!

Cupcake Ingredients:
3/4 cups butter or margarine
1 3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder (not to be confused with baking soda)
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp lime zest/juice
6 pack of Corona beer
1/4 cup milk

Now, I began by indulging in all things Mexican, just to get in the mood. Enchiladas for dinner, cracked open one of the beers, and began prepping (read: Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees and lining my cupcake tin with cupcake liners).

Take your flour, baking powder, and salt and whisk together in a medium sized mixing bowl.
In a large mixing bowl, stir your butter and sugar together until smooth, even “fluffy”. Then add the eggs, vanilla, and lime to this concoction.
In a small mixing bowl combine your milk and beer (and be sure to keep stirring so they don’t separate).

Now comes the fun part. Slowly, alternatingly, add your flour mixture and the beer mixture into the butter/egg mixture. Once this is all together and a smooth cupcake-y texture you can start pouring it into your cupcake pan, filling each cup 3/4 of the way. Place cupcakes in the oven and bake for 18 minutes, and your ready to start making your frosting!

Frosting Ingredients:
8oz cream cheese
3 cup of confectioner’s sugar
4 tbsp butter or margarine
2 tbsp lime juice/zest

Combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl until a thick, frothy frosting. Make sure to taste test, as this, in my opinion, is the best part of the cupcake.

Okay, time to take out your cupcakes! Take a fork and, while still warm, poke holes in the top of the cupcake and use a pastry brush or spatula to glaze on some more Corona. It really helps soak the flavor into the cupcake. Let them cool fully before frosting!

Voila! Feel free to garnish with lime slices or beer tabs as you like! And don’t forget to fully enjoy (responsibly) and share these delicious desserts with your friends!

New American Classic

Outfit: As seen in my video haul! Wore this look out shopping with my mum, and to drinks and dinner with her and my father. A lovely retro vintage dress made slightly more “me” and modern with my over worn leather jacket, Aldo wedges, and Belt that was a gift from Alicat Avril Lemeiux.

Funny little bit: my mom and I ordered drinks, then realized we had coincidentally matched our drinks to our nails!

You Know I’m No Good

Old News: Amy Winehouse is dead.

Honestly, can’t say I’m surprised, but that doesn’t make it any less tragic. When her first singles came out I was all over them. I found her so relatable with her alcoholic references, tattoos, and her pin up retro inspired style. Her raspy voice was engaging, reminiscent of something out of her time.

I’ve done a beehive hairdo for myself on many occasions, and with the IFB Project #7 to do a tribute post I thought what a great way to honor someone whose style I’ve always loved.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I for one will be sad to no longer see her effortlessly cool style popping up anymore.

Patricia Field’s Valentine’s Ball

After the IFB conference and workshops I went home and immediately changed to go to the Patricia Field Valetnine’s ball. I got there early to take some backstage pictures of the models getting ready, hair and make up and such. All of the models were professional dancers from various companies around New York City. Make up was by Llamasque, who I LOVE for their pigments. THe event was co-hosted by the fabulous DJ Cassidy, and sponsored by (in addition to Llamasque) Trojan Vibrations, Cafe Bustello, and Belvedere Vodka, YUM!

Around 10 pm the party was starting. Belvedere had reps making drinks at bars lining the entire wall of the Captiale’s ballroom. The model/dancer’s were go go dacing all around, and guests were coming in for photo ops dressed like the club kids of her demographic. I took my photo taken, took some with some other fabulous guests, and mingled about. The party was also in celebration of Patricia’s birthday so she was merrily drinking and looking fabulous. Thankfully I managed to get into the VIP section, meeting up with Richie Rich, Angela Simmons, and a number of fabulous people.
