Angelina Jolie Afraid of Ending up Wearing Jeans and T-shirts

Angelina Jolie has confessed to Britain’s OK! Magazine that she doesn’t own even a pair of jeans and prefers not to buy t-shirts either because with so many children to take care of she is afraid of ending up wearing these casual items everywhere she goes. To avoid this the Tourist star invests only in expensive designer clothing to always be able to look stylish.

Angelina Jolie said:
I actually don’t own a pair of jeans. This is an odd confession but I realized when I was into building our family, that if I had jeans and t-shirts in my wardrobe, it’s what I would end up wearing all the time with so many children. So I had to kind of not have them, to force myself to not fall into that every day.”

Lady Gaga’s Perfume To Smell with Blood and Semen

Lady Gaga will never stop surprising us. While her outfits seem to be a complete craze she decided to go even further. Her plan now is to release perfume that smells like “blood and semen”.

The description makes me sick. What do you think?

Lace & Sheer – Spring/ Summer 2011 Fashion Trend

When I was a child I thought lace was beautiful. When I became a teenager I believed lace was flirty. Now being an adult I think it is both beautiful and flirty, but it is also romantic, feminine and totally chic. All depends on how you wear it. And I feel very happy that lace is a hot fashion trend for Spring/ Summer 2011 season because I want to wear it and be the most attractive girl on this planet!!!

Lace is gorgeous. It looks exceptionally good combined with other fabrics or just on its own. But beware of too much of it, because it will look unflattering. Choose just one item in lace to look great. More than one will turn you into a Barbie girl – the effect you hardly wish to get.

Too Funny!

Nicki Minaj Talks About Growing Up With Abusive Father: "We Lived In Fear He Would Kill My Mother, It Made Me Act Out To Guys And Be Evil"

Living in that environment has shaped Nicki into the woman she is today. Wildly successful and strong, yet slightly vulnerable at the same time.

Of course we've known that the 26-year old was born in Trinidad and Tobago, moved to the U.S. at age 5 and had a father who was an abusive drinker. But in a new interview with the  UK Sun the Young Money rapper really opens up about what life was like for her, her brother and mother living with a man as abusive as her dad and how that affected her.

"All of my young and teenage early years we lived in fear that my mother would be killed by my father. It was ridiculous. It made me act out to guys and be evil to them when I was growing up," Nicki said. "It made me tough. Of course it did. I am an emotional person, but I am a tough person. It was very tough emotionally for me to have a parent who was an alcoholic and a drug addict. I had a mom with no money."

"We didn't really have many options. When you don't have options you feel helpless. And I think that is the worst feeling. My father was violent - physically and verbally. Once my older brother grew up he became the man of the house and started standing up to my father. That was the only time we had peace in my home, when we knew there was another male figure in the house and he could protect us," Nicki explains. "I will cry about something but I never let anything stop me. I can't be like my mom. I know I can cut ties and still make it. She didn't cut ties when I felt like she should have done. That's been my whole thing. I've been able to say, 'This isn't working any more. You need to get out of my life'. I keep it moving and it has worked."

Soft, Chewy, Sweet, Triple Chocolate Chip. Yes Please.

There is nothing better than delicious, soft, chewy chocolate chip cookies and cold glass of milk.  I have a recipe that will make you love cookies more than ever.

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks)or margarine, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1 package ( 11 1/2 ounces) milk chocolate chips
1 package ( 12 ounces) white chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

Step- By- Step
1. Preheat oven to 350*F. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; set aside. Combine butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer set on high speed until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time; stir in vanilla.
2. Gradually add the flour mixture, beating well after each addition. Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
3. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto greased baking sheets. Flatten the dough slightly with he back of a fork. Bake the cookies until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Cool o baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Helpful Hints:

*Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 1 week or store in the freezer for up to 6 months. Thaw at room temperature. 
* You do not have to add all the chocolate chips. Add them to your liking. 
* For added flavor, stir in 1/4 cup shredded unsweetned coconut with the chocolate chips and nuts in Step 3.

Kelly Osbourne is the New Face of Madonna's Material Girl Line

Kelly Osbourne's
transformation to style swan is all but complete.

The 26-year-old British beauty has been named the new face of Madonna's Material Girl fashion line.

Osbourne, who once called herself an "ugly duckling," replaces "Gossip Girl" star Taylor Momsen, according to a tweet from the company.

Material Girl is a year-old juniors design collaboration between the iconic music superstar and 14-year-old daughter Lourdes. It's sold exclusively at Macy's.

"Material Girl is thrilled to confirm that Kelly Osbourne is the new face for 2011. We will be sharing all the details on this exciting new campaign in the coming weeks," her rep confirmed in a statement.

Material Girl launched in 2010 with rebellious Momsen as its face. Late last year though, Lourdes blogged that the label was "desperately seeking" a new face.

Osbourne, who slimmed down considerably after an image-altering turn on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," has updated her look from goth to glam.

"I've spent the last few years trying to figure out who Kelly Osbourne is, from addiction to awards and fashion faux pas," she writes on her official blog.

Turns out the E! "Fashion Police" co-host is part of a mutual admiration society with Madonna's clan.

"Kelly's always been a huge fan of Madonna and recently heard Lourdes idolized her, which she was very flattered by. It's a huge coup," reports Britain's Sunday Mirror.


Money 101: Identifying The Money Drains In Your Life

I’m amazed at how every time I walk out of my apartment, cash just seems to seep out of my wallet. So, this year, in a conscious effort to make my paycheck stretch a bit longer, I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on my miscellaneous expenses. Here are some common dollar drains I’ve found and tips to put a stop to them before more money flushes down the proverbial drain.
ATM fees. It’s a common weekend scenario—the dinner check arrives, you pull out your credit card and the waiter announces, “Sorry, we only accept cash.” A quick glance in your wallet reveals a black hole. Your nearest bank is a mile away and the closest ATM has a $3 surcharge.
Tip: Think ahead. Of course, you have to allow for some spontaneity in your life, but if you know you’re having dinner later with friends or getting a manicure after work, stop by YOUR bank’s ATM first.
Bad mood/cheer-me-up purchases. “I haven’t heard from him in three days, I need that new dress to make me feel better.” “Work sucked today, but a few—$15!—martinis will make it all disappear!” These are common excuses for the most harmful affliction—random spending bursts.
Tip: Work your bad mood off at the gym, not at Bloomingdale’s or that overpriced rooftop bar. A toned body and stress-free mind will look even better on you than a new dress.
Cabs. In you live in a metropolitan area, cabs are certainly convenient. You step onto the asphalt, throw your arm in the air, and a yellow flurry is soon whizzing your way. Between the initial surcharge, city traffic and the tip, an average 10-minute ride can cost you $8.
Tip: I have a rule to only take cabs after 11 p.m. or when I’m carrying more than my body weight in baggage. Otherwise, nothing beats public transportation for speed and value. In you live in a suburban area, try carpooling. Sure you may have to go a few miles out of your way to pick/drop someone off, but you’ll save gas and wear/tear on your vehicle when it’s their turn.
Deadbeat acquaintances that stick you with the bill. These individuals can drink anyone under the table; they order five appetizers when they arrive and usually pull an early exit, leaving $20 for a $200 tab.
Tip: Stop socializing with them or don’t go in on the tab. If you get a sideways glance, just explain you’re on a tight budget and prefer to pay as you go. They may call you cheap behind your back, but you’ll have the last laugh when you close on your new condo. Besides, it’s not your responsibility to support their gluttony.
Full-price retail. Nothing is as unnerving as seeing something you purchased a month ago full-price suddenly on the sale rack at 40 percent off.
  • Always save your receipts; some stores will refund the difference if you hold the original receipt.
  • Become friendly with the sales associates, and ask them when their next sale is, so you’re always in-the-know. They may even give you a call beforehand if you’re a frequent customer.
  • Check out your local thrift store for finds. Take a day trip to the Outlets, and other mass retailers that carry discounted designer brands such as DSW, Loehmann’s, Saks Off Fifth, and Nordstrom Rack.
  • Swap work wardrobes with friends. It may be one thing to share social outfits (especially with Facebook photos galore), but if you want to mix up your office ensemble and have a friend who wears the same size, do a swap and you’ll double your options.
Hidden cell phone and cable fees. Even if you have auto-pay, make sure you comb through your bills for extra charges at least every few months. New services can easily be added on without you even noticing.
Tip: Monitor your monthly minutes/texts. With so much cellular competition, you may be able to get a more affordable plan, especially if you’ve had the same provider for years.
Impulse buys. Have you ever seen something and just had to have it? It was obsession at first sight, and you knew that if you didn’t snatch it up that second, it’d be lost forever and you’d never be able to find it again. It’s the reason why you have a zebra print cardigan in your closet that you’ve NEVER worn.
Tip: Admire it. Touch it. Take a snapshot with your phone. Send to friends. Then ask if you can put the item on hold, and leave the store!  Sleep on it. If you still want it the next day and you’ve gotten the thumbs up from a few friends, than maybe it’s become a wiser purchase.
Late fees. There’s nothing worse than discovering a bill you forgot to pay tucked away in your desk and getting socked with a $39 late fee!
Tip: Auto-pay is probably the best way to avoid late fees, but if you prefer to pay bills on your own, set up reminders on your email calendar or cell phone for a few days before a bill is due. Pay online. Save the postage and the worry that it will arrive on time. Also, if you can find a few minutes, call the company and explain you’re always on time, but something came up, you were out of the country, etc. If it’s the first time, they’ll usually waive the late fee.
Lost and “not found.” This includes MetroCards or other public transportation passes, train passes, phone chargers and any other item that if lost, will have to be replaced immediately.
Tip: Tuck your MetroCard in your wallet, no shoving it in your jean pocket or coat. In NYC, a monthly now costs $104, that’s a golden ticket you don’t want to misplace (I speak from experience!). When traveling, make sure you do an eagle eye check of your hotel room before checkout for phone chargers, battery adaptors, etc. Those black wires easily blend into the background.
Store credit cards. Sure, you got 20 percent off your total purchase when you signed up for that store card, but if you didn’t pay it off in full the first month, you’re going to be hit with a high interest rate. Typical store cards average 22-25 percent and the initial savings you thought you seized will be long gone.
Tip: Don’t open it, unless you can pay it in full and it’s a store you’ll frequent regularly. Many stores will close your account if you don’t use the card again within six months, and that can hurt your credit score.
Restaurant “specials.”  As the waiter recites his list, your ears perk, your mouth waters, but chances are the specials are 30 percent more than the standard entrees, and their prices are rarely listed on the menu.
Tip: Ask before you order. The waiter may be taken aback, but hey, he’s not paying the tab, you are.
Your daily jolt. I’m a big fan of Starbucks, but I view my Grande Caramel Macchiato as a luxury, not a necessity.
Tip: Make your own damn coffee. An investment in a coffee maker (my friends swear by the single-serve Keurig) will save you in the long run, and you’ll never have to wait on line again.
Takeout/Delivery. You worked late again. It’s 8 p.m. and you’re famished. Hello deliveryman! A few nights of takeout can easily add up to $60 per week. And although you’re justified because you bust your butt at work, reward yourself with a new sweater, not mediocre sushi.
Tip: Cook two big meals on Sunday that can be easily reheated during your busy week.

Hickies? Strokes? Excuse Me.

A 44-year-old woman in New Zealand had a stroke from a hickey. Yes you read right, a hickey. She decided to go to the emergency room after she was sitting watching TV and realized she couldn't move her left arm. Doctors concluded that yes it was a stroke but couldn't figure out why. Near a major artery they found a "love bite" there was a clot in the artery beneath the hickey. Dr. Wu said "Because of the physical trauma it had a bit of bruising inside the vessel." He also added that the clot traveled to the heart and caused the stroke.

Facebook Scam!!

Beware of the Facebook scam telling you that you can see who views your profile.  We all want to believe that there is a way we can see who is viewing our page.  There is an app going around claiming that it can tell you who views your page but this is a scam. This app has various names, two of which are Profilespy and Pro Check. It works like every other app on FB, you grant it permission to access your account info and you take short survey, it is then suppose to show you your profile views. This actually exposes your profile to malware and shares your personal information with spammers.

Be very aware my fellow Facebookers, we would hate to see your profiles filled with spam.

8 Things Men Want Women to Do in Bed

Contrary to popular belief, guys aren’t satisfied with just getting laid. They want it to be good and exciting too. I know—so demanding. But I aim to please and with that in mind, I convinced a couple of guys I know to confess what they really wish women did more of in the sack.
1. Tell Him What To Do: This was the most common request from the guys I talked to—they’re dying for a little instruction. Guy parts are different from girl parts and sometimes they need to hear what you want. “A lot of the time, mind and body reading is the only way to know what a woman wants,” said one dude. “That’s an art that young men like myself are working on but won’t be able to perfect without some direction or just lots of trial and error.” Likewise, another hunky male friend of mine said, “Every girl is a little different about what they like, how they like it, and at what frequency and pressure. It’s okay to just shout out ‘Hey! Put your tongue here!’ It helps everybody.”
2. Leave A Little Hair: For now, Brazil has won the pubic battle, but some guys don’t want going bare to win the war. “Too many women are too bald,” said one guy. “There are lots of guys that like the ‘70s porn star look. Goddamn, I’ll take a ‘70s porn star—who actually looks like a real woman—over a contemporary porn star—who looks like a plastic cyborg Barbie—any day.” Just a sec, I need to replace my waxer’s number in my phone with this guy’s digits.
3. Channel Your Inner Truck Driver: While you’re telling him what you want him to do and how to do it, get a little filthy with your vocabulary. “I love it when women use any combination of the words ‘c**k, p**sy, wet, come, and all over,’” said one potty-mouthed hottie.
4. Swallow: I would explain this one further, but my mouth is full.
5. Masturbate: I’ll admit it. I kind of like watching a dude jerk off, but sometimes they’re shy about it. Likewise, gals can be bashful about diddling in front of their man—don’t be. Dudes like to watch. Rubbing one out for his viewing pleasure also gives him visual instruction to go along with the verbal mentioned in #1.
6. Rub Him Everywhere Else Too: “I would seriously love the occasional back rub or any unsolicited massage,” said Derek. Yes, his penis is his number one erogenous zone. But don’t neglect his less boneriffic parts—a back rub shows you care about him, not just getting him off.
7. Be Open-Minded: “Humor us when we want to try something you think is different or weird,” said Tom. “Don’t immediately say no and dismiss it. We’re boys, we’re curious and chances are we’ll try it once and lose interest anyways.” That’s not to say you should give up anal if you absolutely hate it, but if he’s interested in playing with handcuffs or role-playing, for example, don’t automatically dismiss the idea as him being pervy.
8. Don’t Hold Back: With the exception of being on top, most standard sexual positions put the dude in the driver’s seat, in that they’re doing all the thrusting—but that is not any excuse for just lying there. “If you want to be on top, get on top,” said Paul. “If you want it to be more rough, get rough with us. We don’t mind doing the work, but we don’t want to be the only ones who put in the effort.”
Now that we’ve read through that laundry list of requests, what do you wish men did more of in the sack?

New Ginuwine Interview: Singer Speaks On His New Album "Elgin", What Inspired The Album's Title, How His Parent's Deaths Have Affected His Career & Not Being Ready To Retire

Ginuwine set the bar high for himself right out the gate, when he burst onto the scene in 1996 with his hit single "Pony." Six albums later he's still going strong.

The 35-year old singer is set to release 'Elgin' on February 15.  The album's title was inspired by his late mother.

"My mom told me to use my name for something, she's no longer with us," Ginuwine, born Elgin Baylor Lumpkin explains of the new album's title. "She told me to use my name for something before I'm done with this business. And this doesn't mean that I'm done with this business, but when they came to me and asked what I wanted to name this cd, it just popped in my head. Hopefully she knew something I didn't know, it's the number 7 cd, that's God's number."

Both of Ginuwine's parents died in 2000. His father committed suicide, his mother died from cancer less than a year later. He was asked how their losses affect his music.

"Anybody that has their parents leave them a year after another it's gonna affect them period. I wouldn't wish that upon noone," the singer said. "But I came through it in 2005 and now I'm able to deal with it. It still hurts.. Christmas, Thanksgiving still hurts, but I'm able to move forward and continue with life."

The new album only has one feature. Rap's baddest chick, Trina appears on the song "Batteries", Ginuwine said he purposely limited the features to just one.

"When you get my cd I want you to get me period, I don't want you to get a compilation album," he said.

Who will be the better Catwoman?

The Dark Night Rises is due to come out July 2012, and it is highly anticipated. The role of Catwoman is going to be played by Anne Hathaway. Catwoman has been played by five other women in the history of Catwoman, but will Anne Hathaway be the one to blow our minds? In The Dark Knight, Heath Ledger blew us all away as The Joker and many thought he couldn't do a better job than Jack Nicholson. The last two Catwomen were Michelle Phifer and Halle Berry, can Anne Hathaway compare to these women? With a director like Chris Nolan, anything is possible.

World's Largest Tech Company CEO Takes Leave of Absence

Steve Jobs sent out a letter to his employees that stated "At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company." In his letter he also states he wants privacy for his family "I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy."

In two years this his second leave of absence. Tim Cook, Apple's chief operating officer, will take control of the company in Steve Jobs absence. In 2003 Steve Jobs was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He had surgery and returned to work shortly after. In 2008 when he appeared at a press conference having lost a considerable amount of weight speculation began about his health. In January 2009 he said that it was due to a "hormone imbalance"  on January 14 he announced a leave of absence and came back after 6 months.

Do you think Apple will suffer from Steve Jobs leave of absence?
