ABOUT

Life is a mess. There’s no way of avoiding that. It’s insanity, sweet, fun, bitter, almost too strong to take at times, beautiful–and in the end, always worth enjoying. Vodka & Cupcakes came together thanks to my crazy thoughts, undying passion for writing, and in my opinion, what summarizes the culture of an everything but average 20/30something trying to make sense of adulthood one post at a time.

And besides, who doesn’t love vodka & cupcakes?


The Writer

I’m Sherita–I guess if I had to describe myself I’d say I’m a confusing personality cocktail of a Tupac and a Lucille Ball–creative, honest and complex mind at best but total odd goofball at heart. Southern 80’s kid, film nerd, sassy pants wearer (ironed and pressed, of course) and a living, breathing version of those “Me Getting My Life Together” memes.

To the public I may look like a responsible adult, but I have no idea what I’m doing.

laundry fail

I know more about reality television and pop culture than I do about taxes, I’m still trying to figure out how to cook without smoking out my home, own more books than sense and can’t even handle a cat longer than a 24 hour period without feeling stressed. So my future as a cat lady is kind of screwed.

Oh, and I love GIFs. A lot. Along with a good brunch, scaring the public with my dance moves, greasy pizza, the window seat of an airplane plane, more food, conversations with anyone smarter than me, and avoiding the gym. Every day is leg day when you’re running from responsibilities. 


But really, while most times I feel like I have no idea where I’m going or what I’m doing…the good thing is, no one else really does either. We’re all in this mess together.

    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.

    I don’t want to seem like a super creep but we may or may not be soul sisters. Read my blog hautemesslife.com 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.

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.
