How’s THIS for a Super Bowl 50 ring? Today’s Valentine’s Day selection is the redesigned engagement/50th anniversary ring I made for my mother last year, using her original center diamond and baguettes. Obviously you can’t buy this particular ring but I can use this style of platinum setting for any custom engagement ring. If you’re […]

Damn, girl! The day before hitting the stage with Coldplay at the Super Bowl, Beyonce released a surprise single and video called “Formation.” She outdid herself with this Hurricane-Katrina-referring tribute to black pride and black power. Here’s a tweet that sums it up nicely. She is the biggest star in the world, standing on a […]

I’ve been daydreaming about wearing head-to-toe red sequins on Valentine’s Day. Bianca Jagger looked fabulous in her dress and matching beret in 1974. Dustin Hoffman didn’t look half bad either! You can skip the dress-shopping and look ravishing in red on Valentine’s Day (and every other day) with my one-of-a-kind Juana peekaboo skull locket. It’s […]

Some people loathe Valentine’s Day. “It was invented by Hallmark to sell cards!” they complain. That’s not true, though. The holiday can be traced back to the kinky ancient Roman holiday of Lupercalia, which was then adapted by early Christians, who liked to de-kink pagan holidays by co-opting them and giving them a new backstory […]

On Christmas Day, I like to recycle a post that I did in 2008. Here it is. Why write a new Christmas Day post when I wrote the perfect one in 2008? Here is “Happy Holiday, Goyim!” again, with a new, working version of the video and a couple of other updated links: Every December […]

Today is World Emoji Day, and if you’ve been wondering why, check the date on the calendar emoji*. According to Emojipedia, July 17 was selected because iCal for Mac was announced at MacWorld Expo on July 17, 2002. The calendar emoji, in turn, inspired Emojipedia founder Jeremy Burge to declare World Emoji Day. And what’s […]

I’m not going back very far for Throwback Thursday: just to this July 4. I had expected my Independence Day celebrations to be limited to a July 3 outing with friends, when I wore this patriotic outfit, which I’ll post again for the hell of it.
