Dawn on the Dear Mattie show on iTunes!

Dear Mattie podcast on iTunes, EP. 6 DAWN MCCOY OF BEAUTYFROSTING.COM - Dawn McCoy is THAT neighbor who cooks food for you and just sits right down on your front porch for a chat. I love her. She's also the creator of BeautyFrosting.com, which is all things beauty, baking, & being.

Oh, Mattie!

I am so honored and thrilled to be a guest on the Dear Mattie podcast this week on iTunes with one of my best friends (and neighbors) host, Matt Marr!

Download and listen on your commute, on a walk (like I just did), on the plane or just while washin’ dishes! Listeners’ questions we answer include: parents with narcissism, cell phone etiquette, discovering your true self and a 33-year-old woman in a romantic relationship with a 19-year-old (oh my!).

We also chat about southern sins, new chapters, branding, Step Up, rediscovering childhood passions, my Nanny, how I almost became an FBI agent and the new definition of layover. And just wait til you hear the Chatty Mattie questions. Oh my.

What fun we had on that hot summer day!

BF Asks: Do you have a question you want Dear Mattie to answer? Send him one here. Or are there any questions you wish he’d asked me? 

Saturday Song: Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” featuring Pharrell

Yep, another new column!

I find that I discover most of the new-to-me music I end up loving on fun Friday nights and sleepy Saturday mornings. These are the tunes that tickle my ears, tantalize my senses,pave the path for nostalgia and brighten my hope for the future.

So just where am I hearing these tunes?
Friends sending them to me. On Spotify. Friday nights spent out with friends. At people’s houses. At restaurants. On shoots. At parties. Jam sessions. Impromptu dance parties. Yep, you read that. Impromptu dance parties.

So, of course, you know I have to share these finds with y’all!

My favorite this week?
Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” featuring Pharrell.

Friends played it last night after a jam session and I can’t think of a better tune to prep us for summer. The countdown’s on…

Enjoy! It’s an addictive one!


BF QOD: Beautiful You

In BeautyFrosting's own words...Beautiful You

Happy Friday, beauties!
Today’s BF QOD is straight from the horsey’s mouth…mine!
That’s right! The quote is from “Beautiful You”, a song I wrote for my 2008 debut album, Sweet Time.

“You can do anything. Dance, laugh and sing. You’re carried by love. All that you see will come to be so what will you do…beautiful you?” (Dawn McCoy

I wrote “Beautiful You” for a few young friends I’d met and then, as it happens sometimes, I realized I was writing the words for myself.

I’d like to say I was writing them for adolescent me…but..no. I was writing them for my friends – and for that insecure girl who kept mocking me back in the mirror every night.

So I wrote it for other girls in hopes they might never meet that mean girl in the mirror.

Funny how that happens.

Enjoy them, share them and I hope they mean as much to you now as they meant to me!


BF Asks: What words make you feel more beautiful and secure?

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!

BeautyFrosting, a.k.a., Dawn McCoy

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.

BeautyFrosting, a.k.a., Dawn McCoy

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!
