January’s Cake: Sin – the Cake

January 22, 2014

This year I promised (myself at first, then the world) that I will be doing one cake a month.

The reason for this stems from last year’s late in the game decision to perfect my cake baking skills. Clearly I lack a life. Meanwhile I was baking cakes so frequently and with no set structure – time, occasion etc., it became way too costly and time consuming. Enter the cake of the month.

Some months will have cakes that pay homage to some event that takes place in that month while others will be cakes I just like/feel for that month. January’s cake though – this one is an idea that I must see come to light.

Sin – the Cake. This may be one of the most expensive cakes I will ever make but if you’re going to sin you might as well go all out. The name “Sin – the Cake” (not just sin) is due to the share decadence of the cake. A fusion of cake ideas in one cake. There will be a cheesecake like component, a rich chocolate component and of course a white chocolate component.

I must admit it is an ambitious enterprise especially to start off the year but why wait until December after I’ve allegedly mastered the art of cakes? Pfft! To hell with caution. I’m going to make Sin – the Cake and it will either be a triumph or a complete waste of my money.

If you hear nothing more about this, suffice it to say it was a failure.

Talk to you later!


Screw tumblr I’m on Instagram baby!

January 16, 2014

Right so before I started back blogging I got an iPhone and like countless other “sheeple” the urge to document every mundane aspect of my life overcame me.

All this to say I’m on Instagram and have been for ages now and have become quite the poster!

First post of 2014 with Video

January 7, 2014

So I’ve finally installed WordPress on my iPhone, over a year after having it. That means I’ll be more likely to post pics, videos and stories. I just hope I don’t post my “personal photos” accidentally! 😜

Check out the video here!

The purpose of this revised blog is to be more open with readers about what makes me tick, how things in the world work and to help everyone better understand what’s going on in the world around them in a way they can appreciate.

I’ll also be uploading to YouTube so check out my channel – guess what it’s called.

Watch this space to find out more of what’s happening in the life of the Superlative1.


Fashion is W.A.R

September 26, 2010

What does Fashion mean to you?
To many people, Fashion is this intangible whimsical thing that rich people with glass office doors and stark white walls use to set themselves apart from the average citizen.
Truth be told, fashion IS the average citizen. With a total global worth of $300Billion US, the fashion industry simply can’t be for a handful of super rich people you’ve never met. Fashion is about expression, from something as simple as a crisp hem line on a pair of trousers to something as sophisticated as a couture gown- even something like oversized jeans with matching jackets, all of these things are what Fashion is about.
One aspect of Fashion that people often overlook is the many charitable causes that have benefited directly from the efforts of Fashion houses. A noteworthy campain being that of the (product)RED, everything from iPods to Converse are involved in the fight to find a cure for HIV/AIDS, the beneficiary of this particular drive.
However, it is true that for many, fashion is their be all and end all; photographers, designers, models, shopaholics, musicians, actors, gay, straight or taken, there is always someone who is obsessed with fashion. The reason for this is that for people who embrace Fashion, and all its cut-throat splendour they recognize that Fashion is W.A.R:
Wild
Awe-Inspiring
Rebellious
Shred your jeans, lace up your corset or button down your jacket, Fashion is the only aspect of your life you can wear on your back, and yes even that T-Shirt that speaks about your particular religious affiliation, or dissociation is a part of Fashion. If you want to be associated with a particular group you dress as the members dress, and that would be the single most superficial yet brilliantly deep message that Fashion brings to our lives- You are welcome to be who you want and don’t you worry, there’s an outfit for just that!
So, whether you spend two minutes or 30 minutes getting dressed, it’s all a costume, nay army fatigues, so prepare for battle. Are you willing to fight for your cause?

The Fashion is W.A.R initiative by RFAHarewood is set to launch in 2013.

 

 


Guess Who’s Back! Teairra Mari

June 13, 2010

Since I participated in that SingersRoom Covergirl Next Diva thingie where I voted for Shontelle who subsequently won the most votes, I have  been receiving emails from SingersRoom with little snippets about artists and the goings-on in their lives. I was more surprised than annoyed and I decided to give a read and it’s actually insightful.

The second email I got was about Teairra Mari’s new project “At That Point” from which her latest single  “Sponsor” the Gold Digger anthem comes. The article made mention of the fact that she’s still touring promoting her single despite the video being banned on several stations. After watching the video 2 things came to mind, 1- she’s fat. 2- the video’s crap but nothing ban worthy… I think people are just on a hater binge now. I mean… ALL songs from Ciara of recent want banning from tv if they’re going to ban Teairra. Meanwhile, I’m actually a fan of Ciara (hey girl) but really she been trying too hard to act too loose and it’s coming across as desperate, but I digress.

Peep the video below and see for yourself.


After the Hiatus

May 9, 2010

First of all let me say Happy Mother’s Day to all you givers of life out there. Hope the way you treat your children is reflected in the treatment you receive today. Be that a testament to or an indictment against your parenting skills is all on you.

Anyway it’s been one full year since I’ve posted and so many things have happened personally and internationally. I’m now a firm believer in Blackberry Mobile Devices (aka phones), I’ve left the public service and now working for myself because clearly this isn’t my main stay of income… what else… um… I’ve made new friends, excommunicated persons who I used to call friends, and general anarchy and chaos prevailed. I purchased two watches since the last time I posted:

This sexy Guess watch above for Summer

and this equally sexy Encore Oz watch by Marc Ecko for Winter.

All in all, it’s the same old thing:
Men are dogs
Women are bitches
Money gets spent
And it’s all for the riches.

Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter for more timely updates, at RoHareVodka (just click the name) or check the Twitter sidebar I reactivated today with the new twitter name, same account, different name.

Thank you all for sticking with me during my down-time and there’s more to come, just wait and see.


56 Year Old Woman Commits Suicide in Mall

April 8, 2009

Um… so this is almost as weird as last night’s news story where a pastor was caught stealing from the church and using the money for Botox and Cosmetic Surgery. He apparently had face cancer or skin face cancer or face skin cancer or whatever you call it and used the money to cover up his ailing skin. I suppose I am now supposed to not think he’s a thief. I still do.

Anyway, tonight’s story was of a 56 year old woman who was shopping in a mall with her two small children when she hurled, fling, threw, pelt sheself off the highest balcony in the mall and landed on a 17 year old boy. Now, I will admit to initially cackling out because I thought it was hilarious, however, the boy suffered head injuries so I stopped laughing.

Now, isn’t that some hot mess. Can you imagine shopping for a couch and someone yelling. “You! Move from there! It’s raining cougars!”

LMAO!
