Today I love….A $1000 Ice Cream Sundae

28 Sep

You wouldn’t read about it…..I was telling my Mr. Big just the other night about this lovely little (well HUGE actually) concoction and ta da!!

One of my top 100 fave celebs (another post on the way about this folks!) a la Kandee Johnson went to the restaurant that serves this obscene dish!!!

Golden Opulence sundae

$1,000

First dates looking to impress or sweet-sixteens in search of something special strike gold, quite literally, at Serendipity 3, the legendary New York City eatery where celebs are often spotted. The restaurant’s golden opulence sundae is covered in 23-carat edible gold leaf and is also rich in flavor thanks to Tahitian vanilla ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla beans and chunks of rare Chuao chocolate from Venezuela.

In lieu of Hershey’s syrup and a maraschino cherry, this sundae is drizzled with one of the world’s most expensive chocolates, from Amedei Porcelana, and then adorned with candied fruits, gold covered almonds, chocolate truffles and marzipan cherries.

The dish also features a dollop of sweet Grande Passion caviar served with a mother of pearl spoon and a gilded sugar flower. The whole shebang looks as good as it tastes, served in a Baccarat crystal goblet (yours to keep) with an 18-carat gold spoon (not included).

Today I love….Message Burger….

23 Sep

Hello there!! How special am I?

I know I look very tasty and you really want to gobble me up but you just can’t eat me!

See???

Well, you can try…but you won’t get very far! I want one of these sets badly!

So I can give them to the kids to play with and watch the joy on their faces!

Yeah, right – hang on….I want some joy tooooooo!!!

message burger – shop – upon a fold

“Who said fast food isn’t good for you? We’ll have two burgers with the lot, thanks! Good enough to eat, this message burger comes with 24 cards – all in the form of yummy burger fillings! There are fried eggs, two types of cheese, bacon, beef patties, lettuce, buns, pickles and more. You’ll have enough ingredients to make two burgers and there is even a die-cut burger box for storing away all your fillings. This is such a fun gift to give someone… especially if the way to their heart is through their stomach. Each piece comes ready to pop-out and you can use them to write messages on or create your very own piece of burger art. Made in Japan, this kit measures 27cm x 24cm and when completed 9.5cm x 11cm x 4cm. Hungry?”

I bloody well am now!!!

No…I really just want and NEED to play with these!!!

Aaaarrrgghhhh…..

The Ultra Loop Bootie is a revolutionary shoe silhouette formed by dramatically molding ultra lightweight and ultra strong carbon fiber to enable an extreme heel construction. The design is based on a simple concept of penetration: a floating foot-bed slips through a sexy loop, functioning as both heel and upper.

Heel Height – 130mm/5.1″

And from the master himself, courtesy of ELLE:

“ELLE:  Have you ever walked around in your heels to make sure they’re comfortable?”

“I tried a size 43 Sharpei boots that we made especially for a friend. I think without any high heel experience anyone suffers. To ensure the comfort of our shoes we have a series of size 38 fitting models, including my wife.”

Awesome, hey?

Today I love….The 7 wonders of Replica Jewellery

12 Sep

Thank the lordie* for replica jewellery as there is no way I would have ever gotten my hands on genuine beautiful pieces like these in this lifetime! (#1)

No, it’s not counterfeit folks – it’s replica and I believe it should be advertised as such. I don’t agree with counterfeit as it is misleading the customer. If it was counterfeit it would be sold at the same price as the original brand and also would be an exact copy of the product, marketed and advertised as the actual product, which is a complete lie to the consumer. (#2)

I believe designer goods are overpriced for a start. You need a god-damn personal loan to buy anything in the fashion pages these days. It’s just ridiculous. Rich, large conglomerates just keep getting richer and charging over $1000 for a pair of shoes is not economical to 90% of the population and I know for a fact the cost to make them would have been less than 20% of that! (#3)

I have dreamed and wished to be part of the club and for someone to buy me Tiffany – anything will do! How lame is that? Now I have my replica Tiffany and I am pacified and very satisfied. (#4)

Like the recent Hermes handbag on ebay – if you could afford that, would you really want to buy it – sight unseen on ebay of all places? No, I don’t think so! I have seen the Hermes factory and I know the craftmanship that goes into each and everyone of these bags but I believe that they are simply not worth the price tag!! (#5)

Sure, some people can spot the fake but you have to know what you are looking for and why waste time doing this? Spend time finding the best replica you can for a price you can afford I say!! Who agrees with me? (#6)

Oh, goody look what I found: The 5 most expensive handbags in the world…let’s prove my point right now…..

As the writer of the article says:

“You need one thing when you think about shopping for a designer handbag and that is money.”

Yep, you don’t need to think – you don’t need brains – because guess what? Money can’t buy you brains baby!!! But it can buy you a designer bag?? Woop-de-doo-dah!! I’d rather invest my money to make more or put it into bloody bricks and mortar – at least I’m getting some value for my $ as that is worth somewhere near the price you will pay for it!!! (#7)

The bags above seem to be one-offs or limited editions – this is the sort of luxury bag available to us plebs:

Australians are real deal on fake designer goods

Bridie Smith
June 22, 2006

AUSTRALIANS are the third most likely to buy fake designer goods because we think the real thing is over-priced, according to an international survey released today.

The online survey by AC Nielsen found only Canadians (37 per cent) and Americans (35 per cent) were more willing than Australians (29 per cent) to buy counterfeit goods and pass them off as the real deal.

“We love a great fake,” AC Nielsen executive director Nicole Torkar said. “People don’t see the value in the real designer brands because the imitation can be hard to spot.”

Ms Torkar said the survey revealed Australians felt designer goods were over-priced (88 per cent) and almost half (48 per cent) said designer brands were not necessarily of higher quality than standard brands.

“It’s more what’s wearable and what’s affordable, which is quite a practical approach,” she said. “We just don’t buy into it.”

The survey, taken last November, quizzed 23,500 people in 42 countries and exposed Australians as some of the more sceptical consumers when it comes to the value placed on designer brands.

The global results found Hungarians were the most likely to purchase designer brands (66 per cent) followed by consumers in Hong Kong (49 per cent) and Greece (34 per cent). Only 17 per cent of Australians were willing to buy the real thing.
