Birthday Memories

We didn't really get into the whole birthday thing when I was a little kitschy kim. My mom would buy a Pepperidge Farm frozen cake, thaw it out and stick some candles in it. Then we'd would go and get my birthday present which was always school clothes since my birthday is in August. I think if I would have had a birthday party it would have looked like this.

Betsey Johnson is my Ideal Doll (IDOL)

I hope to one day be just like Betsey Johnson, Vivienne Westwood or Coco Chanel. How beautiful to relish in your eccentricity to the point that others do as well.

Why I love ebay....

Ebay is that giant garage sale in cyber-space where someone's trash is surely someone's treasure. I have found nostalgic items that bring back happy memories of my childhood. One is the the Avon fragrance Cotillion that my grandmother wore in the 1960's and 1970's. She no longer wears it.... probably because Avon no longer makes it. As a little kitschy Kim, I found the bottle to be as enchanting as the scent.
Another item is the 1972 New Born Baby Tenderlove. I lost mine when my family moved to another town. No idea what happened to her during that moving process, but I was shattered. Well lo and behold there she was waiting for me on ebay. I missed you baby tenderlove!

Hey Cupcake!

Being a sugar lovin dessert diva I have to share with you one of mine and most of Austin, Texas' favorite dessert spots. "Hey Cupcake" operates out of cool airstream trailors. They have the most delectable cupcakes. Some of my favorites are Double Dose, Red Velvet, Snowcap, 24 Carrot and Michael Jackson. What the heck..I love'em all!

A Cutesy Kitschy Kitchen

This was a very memorable kitchen revamp by designer Kahi Lee on HGTV. The stenciled birds on the cabinets are uniquely whimsical. The cheerful colors and retro vibe make me smile.

For an Upcoming 12th Birthday Bash

I think this is a great cake for my girl, Chloe's upcoming 12th birthday. We'll be going to celebrate with all the little girl-friends by seeing The Twilight Saga, New Moon on opening night. Then back home for a kareoke and a sleepover.
