GeneralFashion Confections from Molly Bakes Cupcakes

 
They’ve provided us with some serious eye candy over the years, but now a few of fashion’s biggest names can be gobbled up as sugary sweet confections for your tasters too! Created by UK based bakery Molly Bakes Cupcakes, these cute little cake pops idolize the likes of André Leon Talley, Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour, Donatella Versace, Victoria Beckham, and Vivienne Westwood.
 


 
And we have these folks to thank for dreaming up the idea for their Christmas party: the British Fashion Council staff. How sweet!

GeneralSingle On Valentine’s Day? Five Ideas for Beating the Blues



 
We hear it every year around this time:  
“It will happen when you least expect it.” 
“Enjoy being single while you can!”
“I wish I had the free time to go out with my girlfriends!”
 
Yuch. Annoying right? Especially when you pair these helpful sayings with cutesy hearts, stuffed animals, and eighty tons of milk chocolate. I feel your pain, so this year, I decided to hunt down some legitimately non-lame ideas for all you girls out there without a date. 
 
1. Visit a person who has lost their Valentine. There are a lot of elderly people out there who have lived some incredible romances of their own, and I’ll just bet they’ve got a thing or two to say about true love. Grab another single gal, and spend an hour or two with listening to their stories. You might just make a friend while you’re at it.
 

 
2. Make a video montage, a la The Sweetest Thing:
 
(Apologies for the German subtitles; it’s still awesome, I promise.)
 
3. Get dressed up. Just because you don’t have a guy to show off for, it doesn’t mean you don’t have an excuse to look hot. Slip on one of your sexiest dresses, do your ‘do, grab a girlfriend, and Photobooth it up in the mall with a pretzel and a slushie.
 

 
4. Do nothing. How often do you get to do that? Pick up your favorite junk food, put on your comfiest sweat pants, and hit the couch for a little Dinner for One:
 

5. Stay off Facebook and Twitter. This is probably the best advice I’ve heard in a long time. Reading gooey love messages and recaps of the salmon dinner people are eating is never good. Instead, try that old-fashioned form of communication and get out a pen and a notecard and hand write (I know, right? What is that!?) a letter to somebody who would least expect it.

 
Any ladies out there have your own single solutions to Valentines Day? I’d love to hear them!
