2011 Resolutions

Though we really aren't fans of making resolution (usually by month three they are far out the door), we figured that in 2011 we could make more realistic resolutions & hopefully they will come to pass....

1. Reorganizing my closet & revamping my personal style.

I'm in the process of finishing up my senior year of college & every time I come home from school I find new items in my closet that I've completely forgotten about. There are so many things I have bought, left in my closet & never returned to.
I would say that my personal style is so eclectic right now because of my crazy schedule. My official residence is at my parents house however, when in school I'm jumping from house to house so its really hard to focus on everyday outfits. I usually just grab & go! Hopefully 2011 will be the year where I find my personal style & turn my closet into fashion heaven.

I must admit I'm a fast food & soda junkie. I'm always on the go, so it's become an easy & fast solution. I'm not going to say that in 2011 I will never eat fast food again, however I will say that I will try to eat in moderation. Instead of having fast food once a week, I'll push it to once every 2 or 3 weeks & see where that goes. As for soda, I will try to substitute it with water as often as possible.Hopefully by taking baby steps I will eventually cut back fast food & soda all together! :)

3. Exploring the beauty industry.

Trina is a makeup goddess. She knows so much about the beauty industry  that I secretly envy her. My goal in 2011 in to step up my game when it comes to beauty products. I want to explore different makeup techniques, hair products, & all of the above.

 4. Geting  more sleep!!

As most of you know with retail jobs, you fantasize about your days off. I've been working 24/7, while trying to juggle  family, a boyfriend, & friends,n which has resulted in many nights of little sleep. I believe that "Beauty Sleep" is essential, so I have vowed to push myself for 8 hours of sleep everyday in the new year. Even if it means sacrificing my date with the fine men of Gossip Girl Monday nights.....I have to take care of myself.

What's your new years resolution?

Rihanna to Collaborate With Topshop?

Rumors have been circulating about the fashion diva creating a line with Topshop, after being spotted having lunch with Simon Cowell & founder Phillip Green. Topshop is known for collaborating with style icons, so Rihanna would be a great fit for the company. Ri Ri has been talking about a clothing line for a couple years now. "I can’t say when [my line] will be released, but it’s definitely going to happen."

Hopefully, 2011 will be the year!

'Teen Mom' Makes 280,000k a Year??

Amber Portwood, from MTVs Teen Mom was in court this morning & was asked by the judge to provide her occupation and salary. Amber provided her occupation as "television personality" but asked her lawyer to object to disclosing her salary. However the judge denied her lawyer & Amber was forced to provide information on how much she makes off of appearing Teen Mom

Turns out Ambers yearly salary from the show is a whopping 280,000k!! But, what we don't understand is, if she makes so much money why is she shown struggling financially on the show? Well, then again this is 'reality tv'.......Damn can someone please pay us for merely living our lives???

Top 5 Divorces of 2010

Tiger and Elin married in an elaborate and expensive ceremony on October 5, 2004 in Barbados. With two children, the couple lived a lavish and secret life until the November car accident outside their family home. Eleven mistresses claimed to have had sexual relations with the golfer causing Elin to file for divorce. The divorce was finalized this year on  August 23.

2. Sandra bullock and Jesse James
The couple married on July 16, 2005 in Santa Barbara, California. Shortly after winning the Academy Awards, Michelle "Bombshell" McGee claims that she had an affair with Jesse James….including four other alleged mistresses. Sandra filed for divorce in April 2010 in Texas. She has recently adopted a child, Louis Bardo Bullock from New Orleans.   

3. Eva Longoria & Tony Parker
The Desperate Housewives stars marriage to NBA player Tony Parker ended after three years. The couple's fairy tail marriage (They wed at Chateau of Vaux le Vicomte in Paris) ended in a cheating scandal. Tony was caught sexting Erin Barry, former San Antonio Spurs teammate Brent Barry's wife. Not only did Longoria leave him, but his lawyer in his divorce case also threw up the deuces.
4.Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman 
The 29-year-old Burlesque stars marriage to music producer Jordan Bratman ended after five years. Christina  filed for divorce in October 2010 due to an "unhealthy and unhappy marriage."

5. Scarlet Johannson and Ryan Reynolds 
The 26 year old actress and 34 year actor were married in 2008. The couple have made very successful careers for themselves in the box office.(Scarlett in Iron Man 2 and Ryan in The Proposal) however, managing two thriving careers caused the couple to grow apart. Scarlet filed for divorce in Los Angeles on December 2010….Damn I guess being The Sexist Man Alive can't even save your marriage.

50 cent had a white Christmas due to the blizzard that hit up the north side, however with 50s mentality he even knows how to make snow into a business venture. With money on his mind, he decided to shovel snow off his neighbors driveway for a flat rate of $100. He tweeted about his endeavor.

“I’m going out to shovel snow and see if I can make me a few extra dollars today. I’m charging more if they want to take pictures.”

“I want a hundred dollars per house. I bet anybody ill make a grand moving snow today. Lol”

“I got 4 people on one street to agree to my fee after they saw the first job I did. Now I’m looking for employees.”

“This snow moving business is just to see if laws apply to every business. After the first job I got 4 more now I have 3 kids I hired.”

Haha good thinking 50. Gotta love his hustle!

Out With The Old....In With The New

If you haven't heard by now Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member, Camille Grammer has filed for divorce from her husband of 14 years, actor Kelsey Grammer. The reason for divorce?..Kelsey has been carrying on an extra-marital affair for the past, it gets worse. 

Not only does Camille have to deal with the humiliation of her husbands affair but, Kelsey is now engaged to his mistress.He has even requested that the judge put a rush order on their divorce, so that he will be able to get married ASAP. In California a divorce can become final as soon as 6 months after a petition is filed. Camille filed for divorce July 1st of this year.

Well, ain't that some ish. 
I'm definitely not a fan of Camille on the show, but I truly feel bad for her on this one.

Teen Mom's Amber Charged & Sent to Jail

As reported earlier, Amber from MTVS reality show Teen Mom has gotten herself into legal trouble. She faced criminal charges of domestic violence, stemming from an altercation with the father of her child,Gary. Unfortunately, Amber was charged with three felonies early Monday morning, including two counts of domestic violence & one count of neglect of a dependent.  Later that afternoon she was sent to jail with bail set at 5,000.

Unfortunately, in her case even if someone  pays her bail, domestic abuse has a automatic 24 hour hold. However,  I'm glad justice was served in this case. No matter if the victim is male or female, there is no excuse for abuse!

*UPDATE: Amber posted bail and was released from jail on 12/28, and plead not guilty to the charges being pressed against her.
