You did hear about it right? He collaborated with her on her new song "Birthday Cake" (the lyrics are NOT for the demure at heart... highly provocative.... some like it... some say it's raunchy) and she collaborated with him on his song "Turn Up The Music".
They're rumored to be seeing each other again. What do you think about that? That last domestic abuse knock down drag out fight they got into would've been enough for me! But of course she made that song S&M! Just sayin! LOL It could be they're just working professionally together. Hmmm...Who knows? Would you mix business and pleasure? Hmmm.
Well anyway, there life just happened to fit in with my post for today. The title of Rihanna's new song is "Birthday Cake" and HER birthday falls on the SAME day as mine (yesterday Feb 20th). I just thought I would mention it, show you my Mardi Gras Themed Birthday Cake and some other cool goodies I got. I don't know if I'll have a post tomorrow, because today is Mardi Gras. Much eating and drinking hahaha (but responsibly)! I'm finally responding to comments! Will do some more later today. Have a good one! I'll have another piece of BIRTHDAY CAKE for ya! Woot!
My Birthday Cake came from Swiss Confectionery on St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans, Louisiana.
This was my first time trying them. They were REALLY good and they deliver for a small fee.
It was a simple almond cake with buttercream icing and decorated in Mardi Gras colors of purple, green, and gold.
The PURPLE represents Justice.
The GREEN represents Faith.
And the GOLD represents Power.
It's Mardi Gras time here in New Orleans! Just think carnival! There are parades, beads, marching bands, kings and queens for a day, balls, good food, music and drinking. Below is the wreath on my door, the 2012 mardi gras parade guide, tree filled with beads (a lot of trees end up looking like this one because people throw beads from floats)...I know poor tree! And I'm an environmentalist! :( Ohhh, there's also lots of king cake. Think HUGE cinammon twist roll with icing (sometimes filled) and decorated ONLY BETTER. Manny Randazzo's is the best! They even ship wink wink!
Oh The Food! Anything goes when it come to eating during the two week Mardi Gras festivities! Thank God for me this is the last day of it. I have Soooo NOT been on my diet. LOL Ummm yeah, just take a look at what I've been snackin on. LOL Pizza, left over Russell Stover Valentine candy, bbq drummies and wings...oh yeah! I did have a salad! HaHaHa
Get Into The Spirit! I'm off for the rest of the week. So today, I'm trying some "spirits". If you're younger than 21, skip to the end of this post! Now! hahaha Everybody else, read on! I bought some Imported from France Pinnacle Whipped Vodka (Thanks Becks from Oomph for the suggestion! Hopefully I feel like that girl in the commercial. hahaha) and Malibu Black Coconut Rum (black in liquor terms simply means it's the best). Drink responsibly!!! I'll be mixing it with cranberry, orange or Del Monte pineapple juice. I love pineapple juice :)
...and now for the icing on the cake! I received a lot of nice gifts and money. I'll only feature two here (the least expensive and most expensive item). I received Philosophy's Happy Birthday Body and Shower Wash, lip gloss duo. I really liked the packaging! And I tried it last night. It smells so good! It's like vanilla cake with frosting! What I like about it, is you only indulge in it while showering! After you step out, you don't smell like cake. The most expensive gift I received was a gift card for The Ritz Carlton Hotel. With it I can stay a weekend at the hotel and go to the spa. Yeah, it was worth that much. I was jumping up and down when I received it. I was so surprised. So I'm going fingers crossed in July (it's cheaper and I can maximize my card amount during that time)! Of course I'll document my stay there. The Ritz is FAB!
So am I having a great birthday or what? Who wants to come to New Orleans and join me? HAHA Oh yeah, this post is suppose to be about birthday cake. Well, I'll just leave you with Rihanna and Chris Brown's Birthday Cake song! I only posted the sample (go to youtube; type in rihanna and chris brown birthday song and you'll get the version with him in it). Don't play or sing the lyrics around your mother! LOL I'll talk to you guys Thursday! I have to recuperate Wednesday! LOL Laissez Bon Temps Roulez ("Let the good times roll").
