Pubic Hair: Your Carpet Should Match The Drapes!

 Don't be embarrassed, ladies! It's OK. Are you worried what people will think at that oh so intimate moment of truth....that you're NOT a natural blonde?!?! If you're going to bleach the hair on your head to a luscious shade of blonde.....shouldn't your carpet match the drapes? Marilyn Monroe was a firm believer in this! If you're not a gal that features the popular Brazilian wax, this product is right for you!

BLONDE betty bleaching kit from Betty Beauty

This is pretty genius! It's specially formulated for the hair "down there" and includes natural ingredients such as elder flower, cherry bark, chamomile, comfrey, rosemary and aloe as well as special conditioners not found in current hair color dyes. The ammonia free, no-drip crème formula ensures that when used correctly, betty color won’t run into your sensitive area. It's gentle enough to use on your arms and face as well. Use it to feel blonde all over! glaMOUR!

Transgiving at the Pussy Palace!

Well, let's just say that after the riotous Thanksgiving 2009 party I threw at my Pussy Palace....I'm a shell of my former self. The guests arrived around 2pm and stayed until about know how we do! It was a glamorous mix of makeup artists, graphic designers, singers, set designers, actors and photographers. I like to surround myself with talented and creative people. Breedlove brought a deep fried turkey, there was corn bread stuffing, yams, collard greens, my Bibbidi-Bobbidi-BLONDE pumpkin pie, a cheese plate, a bottle of Veuve AND I made my infamous and lethal "Disco Punch" (recipe to be revealed in a future post). Things always get a wee bit out of hand when there is Disco Punch involved.....though I like to think of it as controlled chaos. We had a few party crashers; Mary and Judy decided to show their faces.....and of course their presence only fueled the fire. Another Pussy Palace Holiday to go down in the history books! Good times!

Darling Delight: Bibbidi-Bobbidi-BLONDE pumpkin pie recipe inspired by Cinderella!

Blonde Beauty Icon Cinderella
The popular rags-to-riches fairy tale, known today as Cinderella has been told around the world for centuries. The earliest version, Yeh-Shen originated from China sometime around 860 A.D, and told the story of a feisty and clever servant girl, who befriends a magic fish, the re-incarnated spirit of her dead mother, who was murdered by her wicked stepmother. With the fishes help, she attends a town festival dressed in finery but leaves behind a tiny golden shoe, which later helps identify her to the King, who wants to marry her (In ancient Chinese culture, tiny feet were so highly prized that the brutal art of foot binding was a rampant trend). In the end, the stepmother and stepsister are stoned to death by order of the king, as punishment for their abuse of poor Yeh-Shen.

Ooh la laa! French couture!

The next and most popular version of the story, Cendrillon was written by the French author Charles Perrault in 1697. In this elegant and aristocratic tale, a kindhearted yet poorly mistreated servant girl is rescued from her abusive household by a magic wand waving fairy godmother, who transforms a pumpkin into a coach, mice and rats into horses and coachmen, and her tattered clothes into Parisian couture so she can attend a royal ball. Also original to this version is the magical expiration date of midnight, and the iconic addition of glass slippers. By all accounts a tale of morality, gentle Cendrillon forgives her step-family's cruelty in the end and actually helps find them rich husbands!

Aschenputtel is another version of the tale, written by German authors The Brothers Grimm in 1812. Much closer to the original Chinese tale, there is no fairy godmother in this story and Aschenputtel is instead aided by doves that live in a tree growing from her dead mothers grave. In a dark twist, her vain stepsisters try and trick the prince by cutting off parts of their feet so the golden slipper will fit. Their plan goes awry when the doves alert the prince of blood leaking from the slippers, and as punishment, peck out the stepsisters' eyes, who must remain blind beggars for the rest of their lives.

Basing his version on the classic French tale, Walt Disney's saccharine 1950 animated musical features a decidedly more passive and timid Cinderella, and has since influenced most modern re-tellings of the story. There have been many other film interpretations of the tale over the years, starring a variety of actresses including Julie Andrews, Jennifer Beals, Drew Barrymore, Leslie Ann Warren, Jennifer Grey, Hillary Duff and Brandy as Cinderella.

Cinderella was my favorite fairy tale growing up and I tried to collect as many versions of the story as I could find. While a lot of little girls grew up pining away for a mythical Prince Charming to live happily ever after with, the story inspired me in a completely different way; all I want in life is a tricked out ride, a fabulous party dress and a FIERCE pair of heels! Snap!

The Bibbidi-Bobbidi-BLONDE pumpkin pie

Amber blonde maple pie with golden graham cracker crust and bouffant whipped topping. 

Make sure you eat it all before midnight!


* 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature
* 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
* 3/4 cup brown sugar
* 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
* 1 egg plus 2 egg yolks, slightly beaten, at room temperature
* 1 cup evaporated milk
* 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) melted butter
* 1 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure vanilla extract
* 2 tablespoons Grade A Dark Amber pure maple syrup
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
* 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

For the crust:

* 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
* 3 cups graham cracker crumbs
* 3/4 cup sugar

For the whipped topping:

* 1 cup heavy cream
* 1/4 cup Grade A Dark Amber pure maple syrup


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium sized bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter and sugar. Press firmly into two 9" pie plates. Bake for 8-10 minutes and allow to cool.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

For the filling, in the bowl of an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the pumpkin and beat until combined. Add the sugar and salt, and beat until combined. Add the eggs mixed with the yolks, evaporated milk, and melted butter, and beat until combined. Finally, add the vanilla, maple syrup, cinnamon, cloves and ginger, and beat until incorporated.

Pour the filling into the prepared pie crusts and bake for 15 minutes at 425 degrees. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 40-50 minutes, or until the center is set. Place the pie on a wire rack and cool to room temperature, cover with foil and refrigerate.

For the whipped topping, chill the bowl of an electric mixer in the freezer. Beat the heavy cream with a whip attachment until soft peaks form. Drizzle in maple syrup and beat until firm.

Makes two 9" pies
