The Original Bedazzlers

I may or may not be hung over, sitting on my couch trying to distract my husband who is watching football and working on something for Mari. (Sorry, Mari.) Just kidding. I’m totally hung over sitting on my couch distracting my husband. You may be wondering what this has to do with Bedazzling, and the answer is nothing. I’ll get to that in a minute. Stick with me.

I’m a grown up who knows her limits, so why am I hung over? Pisco. Fucking Pisco. It is the devil’s alcohol. For those lucky people who aren’t hung over, I will tell you that pisco is an alcohol from south america. It’s strong, but seriously tasteless, and horribly easy to drink. My best friend just got back from Chile, so last night we drank the bottle of pisco mango she had, then started making “piscola” which is pisco and coke. Oh bad decisions, how much I clearly love you.

Anyway, bedazzling!

I have seen the birthplace of bedazzling! It’s Thailand. I love that place. Thai people never met something that couldn’t be made better with gold paint and something sparkly. We were there over Thanksgiving, and one of my favorite places we went was the Temple of the Emerald Buda in Bangkok.

If I were allowed to design a large public space…this is what it would look like.

    Pisco…..I know it well. I was introduced to it in Chile while attending parties. However, I knew to cut it off after 2 or 3 piscolas. (I was only 16 too.) I brought a couple of bottles home with me. (don’t tell customs as I was underage and not suppose to bring alcohol back) Since then, I’ve had a friend bring me some whenever she comes to the US. I love it! But, it is really strong.

    As for the pictures from Thailand……those are awesome. I’d love to see this. Thanks so much for sharing the pictures because that is probably as close as I’m ever going to get.
