How to Do Pin Up Make Up ala Bettie Page

I was poking around online when I stumbled across this YouTube video. Some cool chick named Kandee Johnson, who is a make-up artist in my old hometown of Hollywood, has created many video tutorials on make up. What caught my attention was the lessons on how to apply it to emulate the old world pin up models of yesteryear. In my opinion, she does a really good job.

This video link that I am providing has to do with doing make up like Bettie Page or modern pin up model and burlesque performer Dita Von Teese (who is one of my favorites as she emulates vintage pin up models from the 1940's). She has other videos that teach you how to apply make up ala Marilyn Monroe as well.
If you enjoyed that video, so see Kandee on YouTube at:
Let's anty up and get GORGEOUS, Darlings!

WHAT?! You can make chocolate cake for ONE in THREE MINUTES?!?

Why, yes you can! I know that I already blogged today, but this is just for all of you guys and dolls that need something easy for your next "Day Off". I am big on cooking and will go all out to make some gourmet meal with all of the courses, but I know that not everyone is that way. In fact, I believe I am the only one out of my friends that will go hog-wild when it comes to meal planning. But in any event, this was sent to me today and I thought those that like things quick and easy would appreciate it.
Ok, so here it comes:



4 tablespoons flour

4 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons cocoa

1 egg

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons oil

3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)

A small splash of vanilla extract

1 large coffee mug (MicroSafe)

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

Pour in the milk and oil and mix well..

Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.

The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!

Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

EAT ! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).

I tell ya, take at look at these pics to see the before and after. Hey, anyone that tries this one send me an email and tell me whether you liked it or not. I would love to hear your thoughts....

Have a Happy Day Off, even if that's not for a day or two....I know I will!

Time to Get My Bod Camera Ready...

Well, I am going to be in a photo shoot early next week if not sooner I have found, so I just have to do a bit of maintenance.
The really awesome thing about "The $100 Diet - How Naughty Pin Up Girls Stay THIN" is that when you are in that kind of shape that I am suggesting, it doesn't take much for you to do the fast maintenance for that special event, wedding, photo shoot, dreaded re-unions and what not. You are already there. You just need that extra nudge to look PERFECT.
You do simple little things about two days before the event. That's it. And I reveal what those things are in the book as well. Really, it's not that hard!
I believe I will be shooting in a vintage blue/green Lincoln in a matching bikini against a very interesting building....

Drinks, anyone?

I had discovered this refreshing drink at a day spa where I went to get a massage at and it just popped into my head. Being an ex-Los Angeles now Las Vegas resident, I am bracing myself for the hot and intensely LONG summer ahead. So if you live in the high desert or any where where it is hot and dry, this is especially for you! But this also applies to us all in the upcoming months, and it will work for springtime too. It's just so damn refreshing.



  1. 1
    Place all the ingredients into a pitcher and serve!
  2. 2
    For a stronger taste, let the water sit in your refrigerator for an hour prior to serving.

Isn't that amazing? And you know me, I also have an "adult beverage" twist to this recipe:



  1. 1
    Place all ingredients in a pitcher EXCEPT the Vodka.
  2. 2
    Chill in the fridge for about an hour. Then in each glass, put 1 shot of Vodka and fill the rest with the sparkling water concoction. Add ice and serve!
Now, haven't I proven that you can have fun on a diet and still get results? Ha!

Bottoms up......

The $100 Diet is the Way to Go, Boys and Girls....

"Anti-Diet Diet Books Are the Latest Diet Trend - Aim for a change for life, not just a quick fix"

I know, not that I am trying to toot my own horn, but this statement I found online is absolutely what The Pin Up Girl Diet is alllll about. It tells you how to keep looking FOXY while have decadent food and feeling alive through being active, Dahhhhlings! It is so true and it is a lifestyle change, not a terminal excrutiatingly painful diet that doesn't allow you to not have any fun.

For example, let's just say you were interested in mid-century modern clothing and accessories and you started getting into rockabilly culture. It's a lifestyle change. You start meeting different people and following different interests and going to different functions. You start feeling fantastic and happy because you dress differently, feel differently and you seem more natural. Why? Because you feel attractive and sure of yourself in this new "lifestyle".

The reason why I am telling you all of this is because when you begin even living by The Pin Up Girl lifestyle rules, you will feel differently and when you are happy with your new curvy figure, you automatically change your lifestyle. Do you see what I am saying? I KNOW you do.

Here's a Tip: Cut corn out of your diet completely and you will be AMAZED at how that will make you drop weight. Immediately. I have many more examples of to achieve easy weight loss. Let's try it!
