Fun Links and Tom Ford

This Beer Buddy Budweiser commercial is awesome.

27 awkward cake moments

Ever wondered what Pinterest’s offices looked like? Wonder no more.

Ever since NYFW I’ve become obsessed with designer Tom Ford. Not his brand, but him personally. Talk about HOT!


I found an article on him that describes him perfectly…

Women were personally bewitched by him, the straightest gay man alive: In the way that gay men dream of getting hot straight guys to play on the other team, women are enticed by Ford because his heavy-duty flirting encourages the fantasy that he could fall for you. “I feel,” he says breathily, “that I am keyed into the female consciousness.”

Another reason I love him..

At 45, Ford is still the only handsome male fashion designer, with perfect stubble, manicured nails, and not an ounce of fat: “When my clothes are getting tight, that’s not a sign to me that I need to go to another size—it’s a reminder that I have to stop eating, or suffer,” he explains. He has been scrutinized for signs of a toupee, Restylane, and lifted shoes. However, the Tom Ford chest hair remains in fine form, a forest of manliness barely concealed by a polo shirt, usually with merely three or four buttons undone.

Then I read this article on him and his husband. The way he describes his husband’s eyes… I agree, I’m bewitched by him.


That is one smokin’ hot all manly, man.

V Day

Or what I like to refer to as my day. 😀 If you’re in a normal relationship, I think it’s safe to assume that you’re going to get laid on Valentine’s Day. In order to do that, you should probably better show up with gifts. Here are some sure-fire ways to ensure you get some. These should all be a no brainer, but sometimes men are stupid. Just being honest.


New Picture

The Mesh & Lace Corset is a good idea. I browsed VS and I was a little disappointed in their selection. You could always settle for a lacy bra and panty.



Godiva is always a good way to go. You can’t go wrong with a Godiva truffle or chocolate covered strawberry.


New Picture

Kendra Scott is a great place for jewelry. They have a ton of items to choose from and you can also customize pieces like I did in this picture. If that doesn’t work for you, you can’t go wrong with diamonds.



I love this arrangement. It has everything.. pops of color, roses and my personal favorite, those lilies.

This is also pretty. I am a big fan of the square vases with the leaves wrapped around. This is when it comes in handy to know her favorite flowers. Of course you can’t ever go wrong with roses. Bonus points for sending her flowers to the office.

As a general rule, the more items you show up with, the higher your chances are of getting the good stuff. And I don’t just mean sex. The. Good. Stuff. Just don’t wait around last minute. The best items are always picked over if you do!

If you can’t afford anything, make her a card. Yes, make. As long as its sweet and thoughtful, you’re golden.

Christmas Wish List

Christmas is something like 35 days away.. I’ve created a wish list of things I want, that will also make for perfect gifts for any woman.. You’re welcome.

Halloween Events

Friday night Laura and I had tickets to go to a Halloween party. She received a text from our friend Gretchen saying she was across the street meeting a guy friend of ours. So we parked and crossed the street to hang out with them. Around 3:30am he drove us to my car. Oops. We had fun just hanging out at the bar with our friends we didn’t regret not going to the party.  Friday night I was a dominatrix and Laura was a Spartan cheerleader.

One funny thing from that night stands out. Because I was a dom and I had a riding crop, I had two older men in their late 50s early 60s start hitting on me. One guy was very polite and was drunk enough that he kept lightly tapping my butt with the crop. It made me laugh because I am pretty sure that’s not how it’s supposed to be used. No light tapping.

His friend was a little obnoxious. He put his arm around me and told me I was beautiful. Then he said, “I’ve been looking for a girl like you to take care of and spoil. I’d take care of you for a couple of months.” I looked at him and responded with, “Just a couple of months?” haha I think he was a little shocked. Honestly, does that line work on women? Because, wow. Luckily Gretchen came over and was all, “NO! NO! You cannot be all grabby with my friend!” Thank God, sometimes in bars I feel like because I’m so short I just get flung around like a little doll.





Gretchen was a kitty










Saturday night I went out with Ashley to a Halloween party. She was a peacock and I was a devil that night and I’ve never had more guys approach me in my life. As you can see from the link above, the devil outfit looked slightly different on me than on the model.

When we first walked in a guy asked me to dance with him and I told him I wanted to get a drink first so he offered to get me one. We had been in the building approximately .5 seconds. HA I was standing there waiting on my drink when another guy approached me. Previous dude was no where to be found after that. As we were heading down a flight of stairs one guy took a look at me and said, “DAAAAMN, take me to hell!” haha I thought that was pretty funny.

I had another guy tell me that I had the best T&A he’d ever seen. I’m thinking, of course I do..I’m right here and in front of you. Although, they are pretty fabulous. We mingled with a few other people then headed upstairs to sit down and talk. At one point I looked at Ashley and asked her if she’d be bummed if we left. She said no so we headed home. It takes so much effort to get ready that by the time you’re ready, you’re tired. If I dress up next year, I want to go as a bum so I can wear sweats. 😉




2 chainz haha



It’s almost that time again. Time to dress up. Here are my costumes this year.


New Picture (1)


New Picture

When I first saw this outfit I thought ohhh how fun! I’ll have to figure out what to be (there was no description). After little thought, it came to me. I’ll be a dominatrix. So natch some gfs and I had bottomless mimosas and proceeded to go to the porn shop, where I proceeded to buy a riding crop and test it out on my friends in the store. hahaha Oh good drunken times.



You’re welcome.

While this is not my ideal body for a man, I definitely appreciate what he’s working with. Even better that he did it for cancer. I’m blaming 50 Shades for my hormonal imbalance. 😉

Christmas List – Clothing Edition


Last year I didn’t dress up because I was out of town. My friend Sara and I were determined to dress up as loofahs for this year.


I found that on Pinterest last year. Super cute right?

Here is Sara, with hers somewhat put together.

Of course as with any outfit, you need cute shoes. We decided that we were going to spray glitter spray into the loofahs so they look as though they’ve been soaped up. What goes with that? Well glitter shoes of course!

I bought these shoes from Target this past summer and I didn’t wear them as much as I thought I would. So I decided to use these to glitter. The left shoe is with one coat of modge podge and glitter. Clearly that wasn’t enought glitter. Sara and I ran to Target and bought some spray adhesive glue. This stuff is no joke. It is super sticky and it got every where. So I sprayed down a couple of sections at a time and poured more glitter on.

Super cute right? Sara’s are on the left and mine are on the right. Her loofah is pink and mine is purple. I knew I didn’t want purple shoes so this is what I came up with. She used a pair of old shoes, painted them with pink fabric paint and used pink glitter, instead of the opal-color I used.

Here are our outfits from Saturday night. Sara and her mom made us bubble headbands, which turned out super cute! We also used spray glitter to spray on the netting so we would look “wet” like a loofah! Oh and she also made a duck purse, bc of rubber ducky tub toys.



Me and Gretchen (black cat)



I was flipping thru the September issue of ELLE magazine and I came across an article on Bachelorette (the movie). Leslye Headland the writer and director was talking about the movie..

“There’s a checklist by which women should live their lives, so that they’re always defining themselves by what they don’t have.”

How true is that, seriously.

She also says.. “Female friendships are deep and complex, and the lengthy ones are submerged in this dark history. If you’ve been friends for 10 years, you’ve done some terrible shit to each other.”

Kirsten Dunst who plays Regan, agrees, “It’s the part of your friends you don’t want to see. That should be the tag line.”

So true. Have you seen the movie?


I’ve always said that the summer is my favorite season. Hello, everyone looks better tan. I think my favorite season might actually be fall! Probably due to the cooler air and all things pumpkin related, not to mention I have a fall birthday.

While browsing for a bridal gift, I stopped in The Limited to look at their fall line. I fell in love with so many things in store that I had to check their stuff out online due to time.maroon skinny jeans 

which also comes in these colors

faux leather mini

faceted square cocktail ring

fold over clutch

enamel hexagon buckle belt

faux leather mini

merino blend v-neck sweater 

which comes in these lovely colors

While in the store I did manage to try on this combo and loved it!

high heel penny loafers

flower statement necklace

 I finally made it over to VS to buy my friend’s bridal gift but this sexy little number caught my eye, so I had to try it on. I need a man. ha

metallic lace teddy

Target also has some really cute items. I snapped a pic of these flannel shirts.

Know what else I love about fall?! Candles! Especially Bath & Body Works’ candles.

Leaves is hands down my favorite fall scent. I have two in my living room and I can’t get enough.

Apple Crumble smells amazing in the kitchen! I bought this last year and I love it.

I’m not sure if Autumn or Farmstand Apple are new scents, but they smell amazing too!!

Of course you can’t mention fall without mentioning Starbucks. I do love a PSL {pumpkin spice latte} but my favorite fall/winter drink they carry is the salted caramel hot chocolate. Holy yum!

Fall Fitness: When the Bikinis Are Put Away

A few months ago I had the opportunity to meet Sarah while she was in town. She is such an awesome person that I asked her to guest post for me a few days ago. Here is what she came up with.


Hey there Life in Heels readers! I’m Sarah and I blog over at Simply Sarah. Let me start off by saying that in exactly 1 month, V and I will be reunited once again! Ahh I cannot wait!!! 🙂

This girl is awesome. Seriouslyyyy! She sends me random pictures on my way to work. {most of which are in reference to the IQ of said mr. lochte} Anyway, when she asked me to take over for her today, I was thrilled to do so!

Fitness is a good part of my life and today I wanted to talk about staying fit throughout fall.

Let me be totally honest for a sec. I had a love/hate relationship with the Olympics this year. Up until 3 weeks ago, I was in the gym every morning at 5am. I was eating pretty healthy and was feeling good about myself. Cue Olympics. Staying up til 1am almost every night does not make it easy possible to get up in the morning. Sooooo workouts took a hit…..and I just started back up in the gym yesterday. I’ve got 2 weeks until I have to bare it all in a bikini for a bachelorette party so it’s crunch time…literally!

After Labor Day weekend, I will officially be in fall mode. What does that mean, exactly and how does that even relate to working out? Well friends, let me just tell you.

helloooo things that are going to try and make me fat. So how do you stay motivated when the bikinis get put away and the comfy sweaters come out?
Well first, you can scroll down the fitness page on Pinterest and see things like this:

this shirt





Motivated yet?

Then it’s time to get some cute workout clothes. I mean, if it helps, it helps…. 😉

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

Get yourself some good music. My top 5 songs to workout to are:

1. On to the Next One- Jay Z
2. Scream- Usher
3. The Fighter- Gym Class Heros
4. Learn to Fly- Foo Fighters 
5. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites- Skrillex

Figure out ways to make your favorite treats a bit healthier. I love cooking and I really love finding ways to make what I love a little better. Even if it’s just switching out white flour for whole wheat flour it makes yourtreat justifiable 😉 And it’s totally fine to indulge in those pumpkin spice lattes or pastries… gosh knows I’ll definitely be doing so! Just make sure not to make those a daily occurrence.

Well girls, that’s all I’ve got! Thanks for having me and thanks again V for letting me take over!! xoxo.

Friday’s Letters

Dear Friday, I adore you.

Dear cheese tray at Cafe Intermezzo, I will see you this weekend!

Dear small town where I got a ticket, F.U. I was speeding because I was told to get my booty to see my dad bc he didn’t have long. The fact that you’re making me pay a total of $500 is REDIC. And take a driving class? I WAS SPEEDING.. not selling crack or murdering someone!

Dear money, I love when I see you a lot. Preferrably in my account.



Dear Bentley, You are so fat! haha Sorry for leaving treats in my closet and not closing the door!

Dear Family, stop being so freaking CRAY CRAY!! KTHANKBYE!


I also decided to do this fun little post that I saw on Lauren’s blog.

1.  The best thing to do on a hot day is day drink at the pool, nap, then go for a light dinner and ice cream.
2.   The best place to be on a hot day is the beach.
3.  The best thing to eat on a hot day is  cold fruit, or a cold fruity cocktail.
4. Hot days can be miserable at times.    
5. My go to uniform on a warm summer day is  as little clothing as possible! Tank, shorts, flippy floppies or wedges.
6. The scent that reminds me of summer is A&F Classic perfume (apparently they don’t sell it anymore, sadz!) or D&G Light Blue.
7.  My favorite thing about summer is the long days and nights, being tan, cold drinks.

Friday’s Letters

Dear Friday, I am SO happy to see you!

Dear pool, I will see you on Saturday, possibly Sunday too. Bring. It. On.

Dear Ivy, thank you for having bottomless mimosas on Sundays until 5PM. GENIUS idea!

Dear Bentley, You look like a handsome boy with your summer cut! Thank you for not hating me when I made you get shots AND a hair cut this week. I love when you cuddle up with me on the couch and allll night during the night like a wittle baby when you get a hair cut.

Dear dude in PetSmart, I would have totally stolen your 7 week old Yorkie if you would have let me hold him. So glad I didn’t ask. Silver bracelets on both wrists aren’t really my thing.

Dear Sara, thank you for always making me laugh!!!


Dear G, I’m so happy you moved closer! I love having über cool girl friends to hang out with.

Dear J. Crew, thank you for having this awesome leopard print scarf. I have been looking for one for a long time.


Dear guy in China, thank you for selling this necklace for $15 when the same one is at J. Crew for $150! Can’t wait to wear it, especially to football games!


Dear God, as always, please bring me my husband. Or, at least help me have more patience while he walks..from Africa. 🙂

Friday’s Letters

Dear Friday, I am SO happy to see your face!

Dear Subway cookies, why are you so yummy?

Dear Jillian Michaels, I love you and hate you at the same time. Thank you for making tough workouts with quick results.

Dear bank account, I love when you fill yourself up. Please do it more often.

Dear Express, thank you for having an amazing sale. I went in for a pair of shorts and walked out with a makeup bag, shorts, 4 tank tops and one shirt.

Dear Limited, sorry but you lose this round. It’s rare I go to Express but I wasn’t even tempted by you.

Dear Limited, Boo on you for not having a large in the belt I want. I wanted to wear it around my hips. The small AND medium I ORDERED didn’t work.

Dear Tobi, thank you for not emailing me this week with items I “needed”.

Dear stomach, I LOVE when you feel skinny. Like what’s her face said, nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.

Dear girl friends, I’m excited to spend QT with you this weekend!

Dear new hair people, please don’t F up my hair. You’re much closer in location than the other place I used and I need you to make me look GEWD for this upcoming week!

Dear God, thank you for every experience. Good and bad I always take something from it. Also, thanks for giving me motivation.

Dear guy friend, thank you for noticing and telling me you noticed I’ve slimmed down. I love your face off.

Dear Bentley, I love your face off too! You are so weird when you eat and it cracks me up. Must film for blog. Please don’t hate me on Sunday when I take you to get your shots.

Spanx’s Rise to the Top

I have a great story for you ladies today! ATLian Sara Blakely’s rise to a billionaire.
One night, Sara Blakely cut off the bottom off her pantyhose and the idea of Spanx was born. Armed with $5,000 in savings, Blakely researched and wrote her patent for footless pantyhose and drove around North Carolina begging mill owners to make her product. Most told her it would never sell, but one owner decided to take a chance and help her make her “crazy idea.” Now, the Atlanta girl is on the cover of Forbes magazine at the age of 41 as the youngest female self-made billionaire…just for reinventing the girdle.

Blakely has strong views about her wealth. “I feel like money makes you more of who you already are,” she says. “If you’re an asshole, you become a bigger asshole. If you’re nice, you become nicer. Money is fun to make, fun to spend and fun to give away.”

A Kentucky Girl’s Favs

Hey y’all!
 the gorgeous Miss V asked me to guest blog for her today so 
my apologies that you can’t have her today, thus being stuck with

For those of you who don’t know me:
I am the author of The Kentucky Priss
If you prefer the recipe/crafty/ I read this great book kinda blog/ Lilly Lilly Lilly that looks like mint green and pink just threw up all over your computer monitor- then I can assure you, my blog won’t be your fav!
But if you like a blog that talks about REAL LIFE/I am a hot mess/did that REALLY just happen?
Then I might make your top 100.
That being said, what should you know about me?
How about 5 basics?

– I clearly love a car bar {as you can see from my picture}
  Very legal. 
 {my northern friends tell me it’s called “road soadies” for you northerners, but if you’re southern, like myself- then you totally understand what I just said.

– I am a fur momma to a sweeet little yorkie named Daisy May

– My blood is Kentucky Blue

– Sparkling white wine/ Makers STRAIGHT  …if you please 
{hey, I’m a Kentucky girl, LAND of the bourbon, it’s how I was raised}

– I am pretty doggone funny….
I was SUPER excited when V asked me to guest blog for her!
It was kind of love. LUV. lurve at first e-mail…
If I told you all the things we have in common 
like how we even have the same occupation, we would be here all day…
but no joke, it’s legit how we are kind of the same person….our dogs are even dating…
Daisy hates the long distance and misses “Mr. B”, {short for Bentley} everyday that ends in “y”

No inter-breeding couple here, no sir
Yes, they are both yorkies….

                          Daisy May                 Bentley
Since we’re on the topic of “my favorite things” 
I thought it would be fun to go over an updated list of things that I am obsessing over!
I thought I would cover some of my favorite things:
makeup, clothes, scents, and adult bevs

1.  Staples in makeup:
I LOVE a good blood red lipstick.
I know what you red virgins are thinking and believe me, I was skeptical at first too, until I tried it!
My favorite cheap- still gets the job done- go to:

Revlon’s: Certainly Red
Revlon Super Lustrous - Creme Lipstick, Certainly Red
Obsessed with this color and you can find it at your local Wally world, Tar-Jay, or other drug stores that carry Revlon products.
Try it!

I am also pretty obsessed with white eyeliner around the lower inside bottom of the eyelids
It REALLY makes any eye color pop and just makes you look alert!
Co-workers have grown accustomed to me wearing this that when I DON’T add it to the morning routine, they now ask me if I am feeling ok hah!
I started out using MAC’s pencil white eyeliner {they tell me they can’t keep it in stock}
however, I honestly don’t like the texture of it…and bought a cheapy white pencil at my local CVS and LOVE it alot more! AND you save about $15 bucks!
A dolla makes me holla honey boo-boo!!
I swear by White eyeliner....makes thee eyes POP!
So ladies, make those lips and eyes pop!! 
I think those are 2 essential makeup go-to’s anyhow!!
2.  What could I spent ALL of my money on for my summer wardrobe?

No explanation needed – they’re just plain cute
I prefer the more dramatic looking ones
a low back, a huge wide leg, etc, etc
I recently bought the blue one.

jumpsuit               Need a jumpsuit.         Image 1 of ASOS Pleated Bust Jumpsuit
3.  What do I have my nose in?
The Message/The Remix by Eugene Peterson
I love. LOVE. Lurve. this bible!  I began to tire of going to church every morning and not being able to 
fully pay attention/grasp the sermon because I couldn’t really get a feel of what was being discussed due
to the wording in my bible….I think we’ve all been there?
That is until I came across this little gem at my local Borders book store.
It’s  fabulous! 
It has contemporary wording and it makes it fun to read and easier to digest…
I encourage you all to go out and purchase this bible, I promise that you will love it as much as I do…
a Pro?  Other than it being the Holy word?
It is such a fun size {and it’s pink, it also comes in a lavender} that I can tote it in my briefcase for work 
and even carry it in my LV 🙂
Do yourself a favor and look into this it has received fabulous reviews

4.  What do I use to smell all secksi?
My favorite scented lotion and perfume
I am obsessed with this little combo 
I am not a florally or fruity scent type of girl….I like the harder stuff 🙂
I often get asked what I wear, so here it is folks!
I take Twilight Woods lotion {Bath & Body Works} and then mix it with my signature go-to perfume, Coco Chanel Mademoiselle
The combo smells fabulous together.

5.  Care for a drink?
Being single and going out with your girlfriends is quite interesting…
I have found, when you go to the bar to order there is usually always a guy lurking that would like to buy you a drink {who are we to deny?} I love they always want to buy you a “lemon drop” shot {which don’t get me wrong are pretty good} or some kind of drink that ends in “tini” ….
but hey, if you’re asking what I care to drink….
I recently went out with a group of girlfriends and this exact incident happened….all the girls did accept the fruit cocktails but I denied….the group of gentleman then started passing around shots of Makers
{NOW, we’re talking}
and jokingly asked us girls who was interested in taking one with them after a buddy of theirs tapped out
All the girls made the “blech face” but me?
Pass that stuff down, boys!
I had that shot downed before they did….
They immediately asked where I was from….
Oh yeah, I failed to mention this happened when I was out of state….
I replied with, LAND of the MAKERS….not just Kentucky but the Bourbon LAND 🙂

Being a born and bred southern girl I am very set in my ways when it comes to the adult bev.
I never liked the  fruity mixed cocktails {gasp, I know}
No margs for this girl, blech! Just way too sweet for me….
No, I am either a bourbon girl or white wine if you please {I don’t even like beer}
I like to call these the classier cocktails haha
Being a Kentucky girl, if I didn’t tell you that Makers Mark is the ONLY way to go then you would have every right to tell me that I am an impersonator and not the real KY deal here.
So do yourself and stay away from that Jim Beam….Makers Mark is the only way to go peeps!
It’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon
I actually bought these and threw in as gifts for girlfriends last year for a Kentucky theme!
If you know me, I am ALL about some Kentucky….duh.
Last year, I stumbled upon a new love… not my soul mate…
but a different kind….
One of my best friends travels a lot for work and bought me a bottle of her favorite wine from J Vineyard & Winery from Healdsburg, CA…
Pretty partial to my Cupcake Vineyards {which you should ALSO try}
I thought, I’ll try it…..
I have became HOOKED on this wine!! It is by far the BEST wine to ever cross my lips!
Please do yourselves a fav and buy a bottle of Brut Rose {it’s a sparkling white}
but make sure you have a buddy to share this with….I’m. Just. Sayin!

You will not be disappointed.

This wine has become my favorite! It’s yummy!
And the bottle is pretty cute TOO!
Composed of 64% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay, and 2% Pinot Meunier, it is aged for nearly three years before release. Residual sugar is 1.15%.

Downfall They don’t deliver to Kentucky……

I hope you enjoyed some of my favs!
I could go on and on as it seems my life consists of one big list now-a-days!
AND I hope you will come check out my blog at the Kentucky Priss
I would LOVE to have you!!

V and I love to send little quotes and sayings throughout the course of the day, so I want to close this post with a good one!

Here you go…
