Bitch’in 2014 Year In Review + Predictions for 2015

0 comments

Did you have your selfie a merry and a happy?

Now that the holidaze are over, the relentless clock is ticking down on 2014. It’s just about time to usher in a brand new baby new year that’s so gorgeous and fantastic, we’ll all want to dress her up in Balmain-inspired Kardashian Kids Klothing.

But before we get there, I’d just like to take a minute to spread some gratitude all over you like so much delicious Justin’s Chocolate Almond Butter (my new paleo-ish obsession!). I so appreciate your eyeballs, your comments, your social media interactions — and YOU, bitch’in YOU!

I’m always really intrigued about the blog posts that hit home, and the themes that resonate. As I gaze back on all I’ve covered in this past year, I see a pattern where world events dovetail or perhaps collide with our collective personal headspace in the Bitch’in Year in Review 2014. Here then are the waves that we rode in the past year, month by month:

January 2014: My BBFs Tina Fey & Amy Poehler kicked off January at the Golden Globes with one of the best lines ever about the film Gravity: “It’s the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age.” Clooney validated that joke in September 2014 by marrying a woman 17 years his junior — although no never mind to Mrs. Clooney who is bright, beautiful, and dignified in her own right. Indeed, my GenX bitches all agreed that there were at least 7 Ways Old School Beats Being a Young Fool. For example, ladyscaping is a snap, the social media camera almost never turns on us, and perhaps most importantly, we’ll never have to know how to make an Half Caff, Ristretto, Venti, 4-Pump, 120-degree, Sugar Free, Cinnamon, Dolce Soy Skinny Latte, as our post-college careers don’t depend on our Barista skills.

How to Really Let It Go

10 comments

Every once and a while, a song gets so big that it feels almost like an anthem.

And this year, the anthem goes to…. “Let it Go,” from Disney’s Frozen.

You heard it on the Oscars (and please, people, it really is time to let go of making fun of John Travolta, even though it has been fun), you may be hearing it on a Spotify playlist, the radio, coming out of the mouths of babes (girl children especially love this ditty!), or just plain old stuck in your craw, but the lyrics are intoxicating:

“Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn my back and slam the door…”

And the song goes on, reaching a crescendo from the lips of an ice princess that is ultimately accepting who she is and what she’s capable of.

“And here I stand
And here I’ll stay
Let it go, let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway.”

While being left out in the cold is a reference to the plot line in the movie, that’s where the whole thing gets kind of interesting. read more
