Best Dressed

It's taken me a few days to come to grips with the fact that I believe Celine Dion was the best dressed woman at this year's Academy Awards. I know, I know but look:

It's even more impressive when you remember she is also the person who wore this nightmare:

All is forgiven...until next awards season. Even the Fug Girls agree!

No More Coffee for Starbucks?

Starbucks unveiled their new logo which has dropped the text and is now all their signature green color. I usually drink Peet's coffee but I did get a Starbucks gift card for Christmas so I think I'll be dropping in one of the stores soon.

I'm sure this logo will earn them tons of flack (why do people hate change so much? I LOVE IT) but I actually think it's pretty cool. I love that it has been simplified and opened up possibilities for the brand moving beyond coffee. They'll also save tons in printing costs using only one color, I'm sure. Take a look, what do you think?

Christmas at Disneyland

For the past few days I was turned back into a twelve year old girl. If you love Disneyland and have never been at Christmastime you must go! Special decorations everywhere and it even snows inside the park on Christmas day. It was extremely crowded however so that's something to keep in mind if you're taking tiny kids. 


 I also had the chance to visit California Adventures for the first time. I didn't have very high expectations since I had heard there wasn't much there so I was really surprised at how much fun I had. I absolutely loved Soaring Over California and the Tower of Terror absolutely scared the bejeezus out of me. Another must visit is the Animation Building where there are all sorts of fun interactive games. While there I also overcame a fear I've had since childhood. I went on an upside-down roller coaster! Lame, I know, but it was a milestone for a chicken like me!

Surprisingly Delicious Vegan Cupcakes

For my lovely friend Carla's birthday, I decided to attempt vegan baking for the very first time. I am of Danish descent so melted butter runs in my veins and I thought there was absolutely no way vegan treats could be delicious. However, I'd been treated to dinner recently at the wonderful vegan restaurant Millennium in San Francisco and that gave me some hope. Chef Chloe's award-winning raspberry tiramisu cupcake recipe had been on my radar for a while so I bought the necessary ingredients (coconut oil? who knew?!) and got to work. I topped my cupcakes with teeny tiny plastic deer to make them party worthy and they were a hit!
