All I seem to talk about lately is how hot I am. How hot my apartment is. How hot my poor furry cats are etc… Perhaps the worst part is sleeping at night though. You see, I’m a spoiled girl who until recently had spent the last three city summers in chilly centrally air cooled glory. So my pajama selection reflected this lifestyle and has been essentially composed of pants of cotton or flannel (I know…I know…how unsexy) in various prints and colors. Which was fine, but did I mention that I’m hot and sweating to death every night?! I desperately need new pajamas that are short, cool, and preferably cute – STAT.

Well ask the internet and she will deliver. Check out this sugary sweet cupcake studded chemise from Munki Munki. It doesn’t get very much more adorable then that. This cheeky little number would be the perfect thing for me to beat the heat in. Especially since I’ve taken to running around the house in CK’s t-shirts hoping that I don’t inadvertently flash the neighbors. Click here to see a close-up view of the must-have cupcake print and start picking out the trashy beach book you’re going to devour after you slip on this baker-chic lounge-ware. Operation sleepless nights has been officially put to bed.

[Many thank to West Coast Erin for pointing out this funky brand to me].

SalsacrificeIt’s like Joe Versus The Volcano except a jalapeno and an onion are playing the parts originally portrayed by Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. This colorful tee designed exclusively for Threadless by Wenceslao Almazan illustrates a fantastical scene of veggie vengeance. While the tone is slightly too horrifying to ruminate on in any depth, the “Salsacrifice” will surely elicit a chuckle or two from sharp sited passerbys. It would seem that the creation of salsa truly is a life and death situation…

Hello Kitty ApronThis Hello Kitty apron is absurdly cute and very pink which automatically makes it a must have in my book. Protect your pretty clothes from random splashes and other kitchen disasters with this functional frock. Hello Kitty totally has your back! Perhaps the best thing about this item though is that it comes in miniature too. Now your “mini me” can bake in identical tandem with you. Besides, everyone knows that two kitties are better than one.

Cupcakes Are Cool TeeYou know you love them. Red Velvet, Mojito, or basic Chocolate — cupcake is practically your middle name. Come to think of it “Cupcake” is a much nicer nickname than “Pork Chop,” which is how my uncle affectionately used to refer to me growing up, but I digress.

The super stylish and slim-fitting Cupcakes Are Cool Tee is made from 100 percent cotton jersey and the Yummery reader who submitted the product had a fabulous customer service experience with the Etsy seller. They were extremely timely in responding to her inquiry, and even assisted her in detail regarding how to calculate the size she should order for her daughter. This darling item has a limited availability so get in line now cupcake aficionados before you lose out on this tasty opportunity.

Adult Candy Corn CostumeHalloween is just nine days away. Have you found your costume? If not, you may want to think sweet. Whether Tootsie Rolls, Sugar Babies or Hershey’s Kisses, what better way to pay tribute to your favorite sugary snack then by donning a costume in its likeness? We happen to know that Yummery Shopanista, Erin has a big thing for fall’s sweetest (and most triangular) treat. We think she’d look just darling in this Candy Corn Costume with its outrageous wig and flirty tri-color dress. Now if only I could find such a garb for my grams to pay homage to her favorite snack. Apparently though, there’s not much demand for Sunkist Prune costumes.

Cupcake BeanieI cut all of my hair off last weekend so my poor little ears are feeling very exposed in the frigid October air but I’m not quite ready to give in to Mother Nature just yet. I absolutely refuse to turn our heat on or wear my winter coat or a hat until at least November. But when I do finally admit to myself that frostbite is imminently on the horizon I think this tasty Cupcake Beanie will be at the top of my shopping list. Now I just need to figure out whether I’m a vanilla or strawberry kind of girl. Decisions…decisions…or perhaps I should say delicious…delicious…

Wishbone TeeDon’t even tell me that you didn’t beg for the wishbone each and every time your mom or dad roasted a whole chicken or turkey for dinner? I was always the super impatient child who wanted to get her wish immediately and hated the fact that I had to wait for the wishbone to dry out before I could potentially win my heart’s desire. Usually this wish involved a date with a member of New Kids on the Block or a kiss from Luke Perry. What did you wish for?

Lobster Baby CostumeI dare you to resist the urge to burst into songs from The Little Mermaid after you dress your adorable little girl or boy in this bright and cheerful lobster outfit. Perhaps the early exposure to seafood will also curb any chance that your baby will develop into a picky non-seafood eater. If you’re still looking for a costume of your own to go along with your bouncing crustacean might I suggest a stick of butter. Or is that too dark?

Doggie Taco CostumePuppies in costumes are seriously squeal worthy, but a puppy dressed like a taco is laugh out loud funny. Finally get back at man’s best friend for chewing up your favorite pair of stilettos with this hilarious getup that is sure to attract attention. I suppose the only question left is whether your dog wants to be eaten with hot, medium, or mild salsa.

Mac-N-Cheese CostumeWho doesn’t love Macaroni and Cheese? It’s the ultimate comfort food and now your child can be a walking/talking reminder to all your neighbors of this favorite dinner dish. After they toss some Junior Mints into little Sally’s trick-or-treat sac I bet Mr. Wilson’s next move will be straight for the Kraft Blue Box, or if he’s a little more ambitious a cheese grater.  If this costume came in adult sizes I would so wear it, if only for the goofy noodle hat.
