Time out. Raise your hand if you were aware that Barbie and Ken broke up in 2004? Ok. Time in.
In an effort to get her back, Ken has teamed up with Magnolia Bakery to create a personalized Barbie Valentine’s Day cupcake. Cool right? Mostly because Ken is a fictitious character, the cupcake is available to the public between now and Valentine’s Day at Magnolia’s New York & Los Angeles locations. Cute.
Jaesyn Burke recently released some dope ass eyewear. I especially love his Barbie joints. I can’t exactly say if I would actually wear these shades, but I would love to own a pair, and look at them. Or play in them. Yes, that would be awesome.
The original H.B.I.C …Barbie has turned 51 today 🙂 Happy Birthday!
Cue the confetti: Barbie’s turning 51! On March 9, 1959, the first Barbie doll, created by Ruth Handler, made its public debut at the American International Toy Fair in New York. Boy has she accomplished a lot over the past half century — plus one; she’s been an astronaut, an ice cream shop owner, even a doctor. But these days, Barbie likes to spend her timeTweeting. Doesn’t everybody?
In honor of the big day, Mattel is relaunching its vintage SuperStar Barbie, a revival of the 1977 original that featured Barbie’s first ever removable diamond ring. Especially for Barbie’s B-Day, the doll will be available for its original price of $3 for one week only from March 6 to March 13 at major retailers nationwide.
The package includes a reproduction of the vintage Barbie doll in a pink halter dress from the era with a boa and matching shoes; an extra reproduction dress, shoes and boa in black; and a collector’s booklet.

P.S. I’m a tad bit upset that Barbie has more Louboutin’s than I do. Humph.

Now Barbie is ready to talk to the real world. And she begins her new life with VOGUE Italia by celebrating Black Beauty 🙂
I absolutely love Barbie! When I was younger I owned almost every Barbie that was available. My mom used to buy me two of the same Barbie, so I could play with one, and collect the other. LOL
At the time I thought it was silly, but now I kinda see what my mommy was trying to do. Anyway (done running down memory lane) this year marks Barbie’s 50th Anniversary! and Hunny looks FABULOUS, as always!
