Kim’s outfit from a party during Cannes sure looks familiar…

Keywords: kim kardashian, gwyneth paltrow, emilio pucci

Kim looked gorgeous in this Emilio Pucci number during one of P. Diddy’s parties at Cannes this week, but this outfit sure does look familiar….

Gwyneth Paltrow wore this same exact ensemble to the Emmys last September. This outfit landed Gwynny on a number of best dressed lists, and I am sure Kim wasn’t oblivious to this. So we know that Kim is a Kopycat, but the real question is who wore it best? I personally think Kim’s curves brought a new life to the look, who do you think wore it better?

NHL.com reports that Family,friends and former Vancouver Canucks teammates were among the nearly 1,000 who turned out in Blairmore,Alta.,on Saturday for the funeral of NHL forward Rick Rypien.  Some of the teammates in attendance at the funeral held at Albert Stella Arena, where Rypien played his minor league hockey included Mason Raymond, Manny Malhotra, Alexandra Burrows, and defenseman Kevin Bieksa who was one of the pallbearer’s.

The newly acquired Winnepeg Jet Rick Rypien was found in his home Monday night.  It was noted that he had suffered from depression, but police say his death was not suspicious

NHL.com also reported, Rypien’s death came as a surprise to many who knew him — they said he was looking forward to playing for the newly relocated Jets.

“My overwhelming question is why? How could this happen?” asked his uncle, Allan Rypien Jr., “He had a great family, great friends and a great job.”

Allan Rypien said his nephew was battling a disease not unlike cancer.

“He fought this disease with everything he had in him,” he said. “If you knew Rick he fought with everything he had in him. Unfortunately the disease won the battle.

“Be thankful the battle he faced is over.”

An autographed No. 37 jersey from Rypien’s tenure with the Canucks and a poster from his days with the Western Hockey League’s Regina Pats were among the mementos scattered among bunches of flowers.
The program, with a smiling photo of Rypien in a blue Vancouver jersey ,said simply “Until we all meet again.”

Rypien is the second NHL player to die in the off-season.  Rangers enforcer Derek Boogaard passed away in May.

Just had to share this!

Keyword: prom, updo, prom hair, braid

When I posted this on FB yesterday and eded up with a few comments and over 30 ‘likes’ in less than a few hours, I knew I had to share this with you guys.

 

This is Courtney.  I’ve known her and her family for several years. Wonderful young lady.  She came to me with a photo off my website of a girl I did a few years ago and said “I want that”.  The difference between the first girl and the second was the amount of hair.  Courtney has sooooo much long, beautiful (virgin!!) hair.  Kind of fitting since one of her all time favorite musicals is ‘Hair’ ;)

 

So I told her I would do the same thing but it would be a lot fuller since she has much more hair.  Well, an hour and 20 minutes later we had this awesome updo!  No curling is involved.  Just simply weave and place pieces of hair, randomly braiding sections as you go.  I was thrilled when I got this on my FB the next day-

 

“People were AMAZED by my hair! Thank you SOOOOOO much!!”

 

You’re welcome, Courtney!  Hope you had a blast!! I certainly did styling your hair!

 

PS- I later got a message that her and her date counted the bobby pins while taking her hair out….109!  Might be a record! haha




Her Playboy Shoot

 

Keyword: Lindsay Lohan, Playboy

 

Photos from Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy photo shoot leaked onto the internest last week and Playboy is pissssed!  Apparently they were hoping that this issue would be a best seller.  They even printed up more than usual in fear they would sell out. Well, now that they are here, let’s discuss them.

 

I didn’t even recognize her at first.  Her make-up makes her look like a completely different person. If the photo was thrown in my face without me already knowing who it was, I would have never guessed.  Can we also talk about how much air brushing was done here?  Lohan is covered in freckles…not just her face, her whole body.  So, ummm…where’d they go? Not to mention the fact that they completely slimmed her down.  I’m all for a little air brushing to fix some imperfections.  A pimple, a dark circle under the eye…but, come on?  Can we leave nothing natural today?  Sure, she looks beautiful in the photos, but it’s not even her! Though she is a hot mess, Lohan is a very attractive young woman.  There is no reason to go to the extent of touchups on the computer that they do.  I would love to see the originals.  I am sure they are naturally beautiful.




Another great ‘how to’ video

Keyword: Valentines day, diy hair

So it’s the day before Valentines Day. Did you get your hunny a gift yet!? I hope so! Because now you have to focus on how you are going to look! Hair and make-up play a big factor. It’s not all about the dress, you know!  Here I have found a hair style that I think will be easy for any of my fans to create.  Not only is this woman so stunningly beautiful it makes me want to gag, but she talks you through this style with ease.

Take note that you do not need to add clip in extensions, nor do you even need to curl it if you don’t want to.  Just the simple poof is pretty and easy enough. If you are willing to go all the way though, by all means, give it a shot (and send us your pics too!)

So we give thanks for Leyla for posting this video last year! Let’s give her a round of applause for a job well done!
