BF QOD: Let everyone know what you want so they can help you…

BF QOD: Let everyone know what you want so they can help you...

“Make up your mind what you want to be and what you want to do. Then take every path that might lead in that direction. Let everyone know what you want so they can help you. And they will. Be definite and determined. After a while, they see you are determined and you’re going to do it, and they will help you because they want to be a part of it.”

(Hank Cochran)

No one likes asking for help. It’s never easy to ask your friends to “Like” your Facebook page or follow you on Twitter or come to your show/store/etc.

But you have to.

It’s part of this thing that is life.
You ask others to be part of your journey and you are part of theirs.
And it makes the world a much happier place to live.

When I need to remember this, I just read the quote above that my friend, Chris, gave me and I get a little peace about it all.




BeautyFrosting, a.k.a. Dawn McCoy, invites you….

Hi beauties,

Sorry the post-load is a little light today.

I have a show tonight and between that, work and the blog, I am toast!
Well, I’m toast but excited toast. Not to be confused with milk toast. (ba-dum-bum).

If you happen to be in Los Angeles tonight, come to The Hotel Cafe to see my do my other job as a singer/songwriter (Dawn McCoy).

Ooooooh, you didn’t know that, huh?
Well, now you do. Nice to meet ya!

Tickets can be found online at Hotel Cafe by clicking here: Dawn McCoy at Hotel Cafe tickets. If you buy them online, they’re $10. At the door tonight, they’re $20. Geez! Inflation!

Tonight, I’ll be singing some of my favorite songs I’ve written and doling out some homemade cookies.

A bribe? Perhaps. But, as I’ve mentioned before, sweet bribes are always thoughtful!

Hope to see you at The Hotel Cafe (1623 N. Cahuenga Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90028) at 10:30 pm!

And tune in Monday for a whole week’s worth of beauty, baking and being!

BF QOD: The Tao of Dolly and “rainy” days

BF QOD: The Tao of Dolly

"The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain." (Dolly Parton)

This quote from Dolly always makes me smile.

“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” (Dolly Parton)

Especially after a doozy of a day like yesterday. It, metaphorically, started out sunny and then got rainy, rainy, rainy.

So in moments like that, I turn to Dolly.

She’s so smart. So talented. So kind. I aspire to be more like Dolly every day.

My favorite thing I ever heard about Dolly was on a set in Austin. Someone was complaining about how hot it was and they retold the story of when Dolly was shooting a film and someone was similarly complaining about the weather/long hours/etc. She said, like she didn’t hear their complaints: “I’m just so lucky to be here on this movie set. Just a little girl from Tennessee.”

Needless to say, it shut the complainer up and set a very happy vibe for that set.

Thanks Dolly for your spirit and, today, for your words.
