The Mess Behind V&C


Vodka & Cupcakes came together thanks to my undying passion for writing and in my opinion, what summarizes the culture of an average 20something being. Life in your twenties is sweet, messy, but always worth enjoying. And I mean, who doesn’t love vodka & cupcakes?

I’m Rita, and first off nothing makes me more wrecked than describing myself. It’s like, where do I begin?

» I’m a mess.

» No, I’m actually not, I’m pretty responsible–at least that’s what my utility company would say. And my aunt who isn’t friends with me on Facebook.

» Dude, I’m just trying to make it out of my twenties without ending on ‘Snapped’.

» RuPaul is my spirit animal.

» I didn’t choose the pizza life, it chose me.

im just crazy

But really, I guess I’m just a typical 20something trying to figure it all out one crazy relationship, career journey, travel, awkward joke, health kick, pizza binge, reality marathon, pop culture, booze sipping day at a time.



Writing. Inspiration. Film–Horror for the win, Chick flicks for guilt. The 80s never lose either. GIFs, GIFs, and more GIFs. Learning something new. FOOD–pizza is bae. “Bae” is annoying, at least according to my brothers when I say it. Live music–the louder, the better. Travel–NYC owns me. A good book on a quiet day. Attempting a workout–attempting. Trash reality TV. ALL the lines in ‘Clueless’.



Math. The fact that I’ve seen Kim Kardashian’s ass more than my own . People who drive like they just scored their license at a flea market. A bad movie remake. Being trapped listening to a Nickelback song. Closed minds, and an assortment of other things that brew to mind every season.

    Before I can even say anything, her sister had sex for a double cheeseburger? I sure hope the burger was worth it…. As for Trashy TV have you looked at TLC lately? Myrtle Manor, My big fat gypsy wedding, honey boo boo, etc…. Its like trash on repeat.

      Right?! At least one of those expensive burgers from a fancy restaurant or something. Yes TLC stays in rotation on my DVR–I’m pathetic for actually being sad that they haven’t brought back ‘Best Funeral Ever’ yet. If you haven’t heard of it you must Youtube immediately.

    Um, I totally relate to what you said about feeling like you failed as a human when you don’t make people laugh. Glad it’s not just me!

    Ha! Ha! Love your about. You are so clever with all the video clips. How in the world do you do that? Will you tutor me a vodka and cupcake lunch?? Thanks for dropping and following Honey.

    1. I love the name of your blog. 2. I just scrolled through some of your blog posts and I think you might be a genius at using gifs. 3. I have a feeling I am going to enjoy reading your blog while simultaneously mourning the passing of my 20’s.

    Soooo… I just stalked like pretty much your whole entire blog.

    It’s like you can read my mind – and I like it! Haha I can’t wait to keep reading and laughing and wishing I weren’t so technologically illiterate so I could use gifs too.

    Thanks for brightening up my night, Rita! :)

      Haha thank you!! Great minds think alike! :-) Thanks for following and laughing along; officially following back as well–I can’t wait to try that cookie recipe.

    Thanks for following – you’ve made me laugh. I remember all those dating nightmares. Step away, you only end up married with children 😉

    You my friend are an awesome person! I admire that you follow your dreams. I wish we could catch up more often.

    I don’t want to seem like a super creep but we may or may not be soul sisters. Read my blog and you will see the extreme resemblance. Love vodka, cupcakes, cheese, real housewives. Hate selfies, pedestrians, juice cleanses and people who say LOL in person.

    I just say…I.errr, wait, different song. *grin* Hey, googled “Bye Felicia” and stumbled across your blog and wanted to say it’s fanfuckintastic! Sarcasm is my primary language followed closely by small town Murica English and I adore those who habla ridiculousness, which you do. Thanks for the laughter. You didn’t fail as a human being today ;)~

    This is def my new favorite blog! You had me at “I am a gay man living in a girls’ body and my sassy pants stay ironed and pressed.” and
    “I hate working out. I try, I almost die and end up being resuscitated at the nearest pizza joint.”
