Lemon-Blueberry Muffins (with a surprise)

"Well, I can't eat muffins in an agitated manner. The butter would probably get on my cuffs. 
One should always eat muffins quite calmly. It is the only way to eat them." 
- Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest

Would you believe me if I said these are vegan? They certainly didn't have to be, but I was curious as to what veganizing these muffins would do–how good they'd actually taste. What can I say? I'm curious. Curious like a cat. That's why my friends call me "Whiskers." (SNL on.)

And I gotta say, they're as tasty as they look! (Don't worry, the recipe below itself isn't vegan so feel free to stick with that!)

Matchup: Valentino v. Schutz

I know I'm not the only one coveting these Valentino Rockstud heels. Although it took a little effort to seduce me, the all-black version definitely won my heart. But $1000 for a pair of shoes is way too much for this girl. So I was scouring the web for a comparable version. (Get on it, F21! You jock just about everything else anyway!) I did find these Schutz Brenaes however, which come pretty freaking close...

I have to say though, I've had a pretty bad experience with Schutz shoes. I picked up the Irmas in black and white during a Piperlime sale and couldn't be more stoked. Until I wore them. Fucking.OUCH. I don't know if they're just not meant for platypus feet (I have "larger than normal" feet that are flat and a little wide...but to be honest, regular shoes typically fit just fine.), but they hurt more than any other shoe I've ever worn EVER. And they hurt in a place that's never hurt before–the arch of the foot–but.. in the inside of the foot. ALSO, I literally only wore them from the car to the restaurant and across the street to the movie theater before they starting hurting like a mother fucker. I don't know, but I will never wear them again. They're in a size 8.5 and they're gorgeous in case anyone wants to take them off my hands...Rant.Over.
