Celebrity Feet On Red Carpets

We love seeing celebrities dazzle the red carpet but very few people actually bother to spend a few seconds to look at their feet….ahem…shoes! As a die hard shoe lover, heel lover for that matter, my greatest fear is having “odd” looking feet. I am quite tall so having long toes is not something I can avoid. It is what it is. However, bunions, hammer toes, et. al. scares the bejesus out of me. I agree, no one is perfect but seeing some of the images featured below reminds me each day to alternate my love for high heels with flats! It’s perfectly ok to give the feet some rest and air them out once in a while.

I leave you to it to identify the celebrities featured below.

Fashion: Garden of Eden Seems To Be The New Trend

Rihanna and Melissa

Have you been noticing a lot of floral designs and pattern matching from head to toe lately.

Givenchy resort 2014 collection

Me, checking out the look at Zara

As seen on the streets of NYC

Something spectacluar for the guys.

It appears that could be the “reigning” look of the season and beyond! No longer required to wear color blocking to break off a busy pattern. It is now “IN” to actually wear matching patterns. Who knew! Leading designers such as Givenchy and Dolce & Gabbana are already paving the way for trend in their resort and fall 2014 collection respectively. Fast fashion retail giants are already cashing in ahead of the trend by stocking the looks in their stores starting this summer. I managed to try on a set during my visit to a Zara store recently. While there, a store nearby also displayed a bolder exotic set for men on a mannequin. The look is already making its way to the streets, on people out and about, including Rihanna!

Beware of Changing Room Mirrors!

When we visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms, etc., how many of you know for sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall Is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror (i.e., they can see you, but you can ‘ t see them)?

There have been many cases of people installing 2-way mirrors in female changing rooms . It is very difficult to positively identify the surface by looking at it. So, how do we determine with any amount of certainty what type of mirror we are looking at?

Just conduct this simple test: Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is GENUINE mirror.

However, if your Fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail,

Then BEWARE! IT IS A 2-WAY MIRROR!

A Giant Step On Equality For Gay Rights

OMG! Have you heard?!

As of today June 26, 2013: The United States Supreme Court just declared the Defense of Mariage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional. Now, validly married gay couples cannot be denied more
than 1000 rights allowed under the law to heterosexual couples. The Supreme Court of the United States has just dismissed California’s Proposition 8. Now same-sex couples will be allowed to marry in the state of California. Basically saying the Supreme Court did not rule on same-sex marriage, but allows states to determine who can be married, eliminates federal government’s interference with rights conferred by marriage. This is a good step towards the ultimate destination. Folks in California can now breathe easier.

This news couldn’t come at a better time. This week also happens to be Gay Pride week which will be concluded this coming weekend with a flamboyant parade in New York City. There’s now more reason to celebrate and be merry! Equality for all! Yes hunty! 🙂

Russian Tampax Commercial Like No Other

Apparently western Tampax (tampon) commercials are too light weight for the Russian market. Ladies! Watch this video footage below if you love your body. If it doesn’t convince you to run out and buy a box of Tampax before hitting the beach I don’t know what will. Just make sure you are air tight before jumping heading out to the beach this summer. Too hilarious. 🙂

Yoga On Times Square

Mind over madness on Times Square. It’s the annual first day of summer (summer solstice) celebration New York yoga style which meant getting out the mat and heading over to Times Square to lay on the street and shut out the world while meditating and performing many Vinyasas in between heavy New York City traffic. This is New York, a town where anything is possible.

Armie Hammer For 50 Shades of Grey Movie?

Could the 6 foot 5 actor Armie Hammer possibly be the man for the “50 shades of grey” movie? Here’s is interview from Playboy magazine.

PLAYBOY: You’re a guy who has gone on record saying he’s obsessed with tying knots and who often carries a rope and a knot guide with him wherever he goes. Now we’re hearing about a mask. Is there anything we need to know about your sex life?
HAMMER: Well, if you’re married to a feminist [journalist, restaurateur and actress Elizabeth Chambers] as I am, then it’s…. I don’t know how much we can put here without my parents being embarrassed, but I used to like to be a dominant lover. I liked the grabbing of the neck and the hair and all that. But then you get married and your sexual appetites change. And I mean that for the better—it’s not like I’m suffering in any way. But you can’t really pull your wife’s hair. It gets to a point where you say, “I respect you too much to do these things that I kind of want to do.”

PLAYBOY: And how does she respond?
HAMMER: The two us will literally break out laughing in the middle of it, finish up and be like, “Well, that was oddly fun!” So it becomes a new kind of thing that’s less about “I want to dominate you” and more about both of us having a really good time. It’s just a different style.

Armie Hammer played the rich twins in the Facebook movie “Social Network” and will appear next to Johnny Depp in the upcoming “Lone Ranger” movie.

Hairy Leggings To Fend Off Men. Hmm…

As a woman, have you ever had the trouble of fending off men from touching you in the subway or unwanted glances towards your smooth silken legs? Well, someone in China has invented the hairy leggings called the “anti-pervert” stockings to help put a stop to it. But beware! If you are a single girl looking for handsome men to court you, this might not be ideal. Either way, it could be worth it just for the shock value. Ready for the beach ladies? Let’s do it! 🙂

Wounded US Marine Becomes Sexy Underwear Model

He’s one of the few good men who has done the country proud. U.S. Marine Alex Minsky lost a leg in Afghanistan but gained a new career as an underwear model. After seeing so many HOT pictures of Alex currently burning up Facebook, no man can tell me anything when it comes to dedication, perseverance and making things happen. He’s a true inspiration to NEVER give up!

Did I mention Alex can still play soccer with his artificial leg and has a purple heart for his heroic service in the Marine? His name is fast becoming a name synonymous with heroic determination to overcome adversity. When asked how he took the news that his leg was gone, Alex responded with reflexive honesty,“I guess you can say I haven’t even really realized it’s a disability at all yet. Still. It’s just the way it is. I have one leg now. Life goes on. Life really is what you make it.” When asked what has been his most powerful motivator for staying healthy, he replied simply, “I wanted to look good naked.”

Amen to that! 🙂

You quickly forget about that leg once you set eyes on these jaw dropping pictures. Someone please pass me the bucket of ice. It’s a hot summer day. And ladies, you’re welcome!  🙂

Turkish Protest On Union Square, NY

Turkish-Americans took to Union Square in New York to make their feelings known about the political climate going on in their country, Turkey. Many protested about their current Prime Minister Erdogan slowly slipping into what they would like to refer to as a dictatorship system under strict Islamic doctrine. The citizens of the country have long praised and looked up to their historical leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk for starting and bringing the country to where it is today, with previous leaders after him taking from his system to govern the country. Today, it is said that Erdogan has introduced several laws that includes banning the sale of liquor, freedom of speech in some cases and even conversion of historic landmark parks into shopping malls and new Mosques. We do hope they could all reach a level of resolution that would lead to no blood shed in Turkey. It’s just so sad to hear and see this happening to Turkey. I had the privilege of visiting the country in 2009. It’s a lovely place. It would be devastating to see it come to ruins.
