Added you on Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr.

You are so fabulous, I’m surprised the internet hasn’t exploded. But, alas, it is still intact, and you are still able to deliver to me laughter and weird looks from my friends when I tell them about your blog.

Hey Lover,

found you via link from Chainsaws and Jelly, will return shortly, am adding a link to my blog

agree with all other statements so no use in rehashing old news. i have a sneaking suspicion you already know how great i really think you are.


20 Danon { 02.15.10 at 1:24 pm }

ok, 2nd comment in less than 4 minutes…it may be a little sad but first you are great, 2nd you have a fucking paper doll and my kids think it should have some of your tattoo’s on it…and also that I am an uncool blogger for not having a paper doll.

3rd…i think you are amazing and will add you to my life on the interweb…thanks again!!!

21 Gaston213 { 03.05.10 at 7:50 am }

So leave it to a gay dude to find your blog while googling my ass off trying to find a picture of Helen Hunt’s fucking Bride of Frankenstein hair from Girls Just Want to Have Fun (long story but I’ve always wanted to gatecrash a party with the help of Kinko’s, a motorcycle gang, some lesbian body builders. Hey you gotta start dreaming somewhere, right?) Anyways i found you fucking hysterical and am suddenly (for once in my life)thankful that Helen Hunt exists. Following you on twitter now too @gaston213

22 MsAmandaCD { 03.29.10 at 10:15 am }

Thanks for the lovely Jackie Collins interview!!! :)

23 Jolene { 05.29.10 at 10:41 pm }

Hi there! I just wanted to let you know that – I just discovered your blog & you are so effing rad!

24 C.ann { 06.25.10 at 1:10 pm }

I just wanna say that I think you are absolutely fabulous!!
I mean, i’m sure you hear this often from tons of people you may not know… (myself included ha ha)
but I just love your blog dearly, i recently stumbled on it a few days ago and I have to say that your blog is a breath of fresh air and your personal style is to die for.
It’s definitely a huge change from the typical fashion blog I read on a daily with all the size 0 bitches all over the interweb… sometimes it’s a little depressing seeing their little skinny asses everywhere. I too am a very voluptuous female but I sometimes feel very self conscience about my body weight especially my calves. They are larger the the typical female even for my body size. You seem to be sooo confident in yourself !! I love that!!
How do you do it? it’s very motivating, since I have been struggling with this issue for a little while now… I live in Hollywood and most every girl walking down the street is a size small, long perfects legs and huge tits… it’s hard to feel beautiful competing with that, even if it’s all natural or not…
But finding your blog gives me a realistic view that being a stylish beauty isn’t in your waist size<3
Thanks for that!! :D

25 lexlocilori { 07.08.10 at 10:29 pm }

holla– I am a folla on Twitter. love it!

26 Meagan Kyla { 07.09.10 at 12:36 pm }

You are amazing! Heheheee!!!!

27 Malinxe { 08.11.10 at 3:45 pm }

HOLLA!! Love your blog, love your style. I have a question for you, since you recently posted about your <3 for Target, what is your stance on the whole gay hating, sponsoring of Gov. Tom Emmer? To boycott or not?

28 marie { 08.11.10 at 3:57 pm }

It’s funny, I JUST touched a little on that for a question in an interview I just did. I haven’t shopped there since this whole thing went down. Equal rights are VERY important to me and with my state’s recent victory with the Prop 8 turnover it is even more present in my conscious. I think they need to fix their fuckup ASAP and contribute a LARGE amount to equal rights or they will lose even more of their customers. An apology just won’t cut it. PS I can’t believe the timing on my post and that shit! Don’t they know I have the soul of a gay mang?

29 Nina K. { 09.04.10 at 6:39 pm }

Hola! Que pasa? Just want to say that I love your blog!!! Keep doing what you are doing, and making us Latina chicas very proud!!!

30 VeeFantastic { 10.07.10 at 9:26 pm }

Oh my gooses. I’m so glad I found your blog.

35 Jess { 12.22.10 at 9:39 am }

I came across your lovely blog late last night whilst searching Google for images of micro bangs. While exploring your “Cinephilia” and “Obsess With Me” pages, I forgot about my bangs search entirely. I was totally engrossed in your quirky, yet adorable entries. I bookmarked your page before I went to bed and made a mental note to tell you later how much your blog has inspired me. :)

36 BoBo BaBushka { 03.01.11 at 3:20 pm }

I want to grow up and bee just like you! xo!

37 alexander Zar { 05.05.11 at 1:12 pm }

Hi Marie,

I want to share a secret with you: I wish you were more of a secret so I wouldn’t have to share you with the whole entire world. I’m happy that you’re a contributing writer for Tavi’s ‘Rookie’, but I’m sad at the same time.


41 shmee { 02.24.12 at 4:38 pm }

I often wonder what happened to you and to Klaus. Now I see you blossomed into a slightly glittery-er version of yourself covered with frosting and crawdads. And Klaus? Is he still alive? :)

42 marie { 02.28.12 at 8:42 am }

SHMEE! Klaus is alive and well and always watching. He says hello!

43 Daisy Chain { 03.27.13 at 10:37 am }

I don’t know if you ever check this anymore but I have to say; you’re hilarious — made me roll forward and suck wind, hilarious. I loved your foodie-perfume post.
