Katie’s Favorites of 2012

Favorite Style Icon: Taylor Swift

T. Swift has seriously stepped her game in 2012. Yes, she’s still sticking to the neutral colored dresses – but hey! That’s okay. It works for her. Taylor Swift is really just doing all the right things when it comes to her style these days and it helps that there are a handful of fabulous designers throwing their pieces at her. It’s awesome. I, of course, am jealous.

Runner Up: Michelle Obama / Kate Middleton

The Obama Family: Then and Now

photo cred | Hello Magazine

It is hard to believe that the first term has already flown by. I don’t want to get too much into my political views here on Yow Yow, but I will say three words about the results: I was thrilled.

I am just glad to say that this time around I felt not only more informed, but more confident in my decisions and what exactly I was expressing my voice on.

But this post isn’t about this. This post is about the Obama ladies – Michelle, Malia and Sasha. These three women are becoming style icons. Seriously, I wish I looked that good and dressed that well at Malia’s age. I didn’t. Her outfit last night was something I absolutely needed to have in my closet. And also – I think we’ve all heard by now about how the fashion industry has publicly dismissed Ann Romney and pretty much only supported Michelle Obama during the campaigning season.

These two girls have grown up so much. I can’t wait to see how their style continues to evolve over the next four years and to see who will be designing Malia’s prom dress. Oh yeah. You know that’s coming.

In Things I Am Disappointed About Today…

Why did no one tell me about Molly Moon’s exclusive  Baracky Road ice cream?!

Is this punishment for no longer living in Capitol Hill because I feel like it is. Tomorrow’s the last day and I am nowhere near a Molly Moon’s. A bellini will have to do.

Memorable Quotes of the Decade

I came across this post today that featured the most famous quotes (phrases, whatever) in pop culture of the decade that we will never ever forget. So I wanted to share my favorite ten with you from the list.

“Yo, Taylor. I’m really happy for you, Imma let you finish but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!” – Kanye West really stepped in it when he stole the mic from singer Taylor Swift as she accepts the “Best Female Video” award during the MTV Video Music Awards (2009)

Obama + Unicorns

It’s a magical world.

Artist Dan Lacey, who goes by The Painter of Pancakes, (wtf?!) has created a series of painting of our President Barack Obama with unicorns. When I first read the story, I thought it would be somewhat disturbing, but I’m feelin’ this now! They are really quite pretty.

This is probably my favorite.

But this one comes in a close second!
