Dexter Pittman drops an elbow into the head of Lance Stephenson

Keywords: heat, pacers, dexter pittman

 

Lance Stephenson was the guy that sent the choking gesture in the direction of Lebron James. He is also the guy that has played about 7 minutes during the postseason. Yet two games later, amidst a blowout, Dexter Pittman of the Heat was still thinking about Stephenson. And so he did what you saw in the video, lets just call it a “Ron Artest.” Suspension is immenent, although its not like Dexter Pittman is such an important piece of the Miami Heat.




UGG comeback, or extinction?

Keyword: uggs, winter boots

If nobody else wants to talk about it, I will:  What the heck is going to happen with UGGs this year?   Honest question.  I have friends who wear them all winter, and friends who swear against them.
The cold weather will be setting in, bringing us into the 3rd ‘popular’ season(for all the people that will get on my case about UGGs being around for 10 years, “they were used by surfers for 97 years” blah blah blah.  shhhhh, stop talking)   What i’m asking is what will we see this year? Uggs in high demand and on every girl we walk past?  Or a noticeable decline in the popularity of this once thriving shoe/boot/slipper/foot warmie thing.

remember that time Tom Brady was an UGG model? Oh yeah, that’s right now.    I don’t even like football, and I even laughed a little bit to myself.

My final answer?  I say the UGG trend is back in full swing within 2 months. They’ll come out with new colors, new heights, new fitments etc etc.
No doubt they’re comfortable, I get it.   I also get that they’re convenient to throw on when running out the door.
I also think they look good with a pair of black yoga pants, or a crisp and clean white t-shirt.

Fact is, just like the internet… if the general public likes the product, they’re going to keep using that product.




Two of the China’s biggest stars having a good time

Keywords: jackie chan, yao ming

 

When I logged on facebook this morning I saw the usual same old boring stuff. And then boom, Jackie Chan shares a picture of him and Yao Ming. It appears they are opening up some sort of fitness gym of some sort, I don’t really know. What I do know is that these are not only two of the best things to come out of China, they are two of the best damn people in the world. I rock my Yao Ming jersey every chance I get. And Jackie Chan, man I cant even tell you how much of Chan fan I am. This image is just pure gold.




Talk about an oxymoron of a shoe…

With the athletic trend in full swing, I have been looking everywhere for fun and unique sneakers. As I mentioned a few months ago, I am not typically a sneaker girl and I only own 1 pair of gym shoes, being my only pair of sneakers. So what shoes would finally make the girly-girl in me swoon over sneakers? Sneaker heels of course, with no heel at all!

 

When I came across these shoes on Moda Operandi I couldn’t wait to share them with you! These fab kicks from BE&D Sneakers are available here until April 13th for $128! Would you rock the sneaker heels???
