Woman attacked in Forest Hills Sizzler by staff and patrons wins lawsuit

Keywords: sizzler forest hills, lesbian attacked

 

A lesbian who was attacked in a Queens Sizzler by staff and diners has been awarded $25,000 in a lawsuit after a court ruled that she had been viciously attacked.

 

Liza Friedlander was pushed, kicked and called a “f**king dyke,” by Edgar Orellana, the manager of a Sizzler in Forest Hills, Queens last year. Once he began, patrons in the diner also chimed in, making for a hostile situation including one diner who  reportedly threatened to show her “what a dick is.”

 

 

The fact that this even happened is disgusting. I’m sorry to hear what happened to you Liza, it is shameful. According to the Huffington Post, Friedlander also said that she was relieved by the court’s decision. “On that day, I felt helpless, humiliated and frightened, but today I’m so proud that I stood up and did something about it,” she said. “No one should have to go through a nightmare like that.”

 

 




When food inspires style

Keyword: nails, polish, cupcakes, food

Who doesn’t love cupcakes?! I’m like obsessed with them.  In fact, the first thing I said to my fiance when we got engaged was that we will NOT be having a wedding cake, but a cupcake tower instead!!

 

So why not let your love for cupcakes inspire your love for fun nail designs?! You can be as creative as you want.  Go for many different colors, or keep it simple and uniform.  Just don’t get tempted to bite your nails.  That’s a terrible habit to form. Enjoy these fun, creative, works of art :)

 

 

Now I must go contact lovely Lauren from our weEATny site to bake me some lovely treats! I have a craving for cupcakes! Yummm




Make mornings a little easier!

Keywords: oatmeal, breakfast, no cook

 

Mornings can go very array if the slightest thing throws off my routine … For example, not being able to figure out a quick/healthy/delish breakfast.  Then I found this, Refrigerator Oatmeal, and I’m in breakfast love.  Occasionally I don’t even have the 3 minutes necessary to microwave oatmeal – that’s how pressed for time I am.  But not, just reach into the fridge and there is your yummy meal ready to hit the road with you.

 

This come from PepperLynn.com.  Gather your ingredients, stock up on mason jars, mix them together, and refrigerate over night.  So simple!    Here’s her base recipe – then add fruits and flavors to liven it up: ½ cup rolled oats (not quick cooking), ½ cup plain Greek yogurt, 2/3 cup milk, 1 tablespoon chia seeds  {if you’re using regular yogurt instead of Greek reduce the amount of milk a little}

 

I love adding a couple table spoons of strawberry jam {or fresh strawberries if they’re in my refrigerator} and a mashed up banana, as per her suggestion.  Try adding mango, blueberries, honey, maple syrup, brown sugar, apples/apple sauce, cinnamon, chocolate, peanut butter {especially when using banana chocolate & peanut butter is amazing!}.  Your possibilities are endless.  Enjoy!




Like tattooing ‘stupid’ across your forehead

 

Keyword: Drake, tattoo, regret

 

A while back I posted about tattoos on the face (mostly make-up tattoos) and how they are a bad idea!  This woman took it too a whole new level!

Performer Drake rhymes in one of his songs “Tat my name on you so I know it’s real.” Apparently someone took the lyric a little too litteral. A young woman from Los Angeles took it upon herself  to post pictures of the tattoo she had just gotten. Yup, that’s right!  ’DRAKE’ is now permanently written across this woman’s forehead! 

The tattoo artist, Kevin Campbell of LA shop Will Rise claims the woman was psyched about it. She had the font picked out and really wanted it on her forehead.  He said  “…She acted as if she had planned it out for a while; though I’m not really sure how much extended coherent thought could actually go into getting such a stupid tattoo on your forehead.”

According to Campbell, she was initially excited, but her demeanor changed when the tattoo was finished. He said he did ask several times if this is really what she wanted, a usual question when people come in asking for outrageous tattoos.  If they keep answering ‘yes’, he isn’t going to turn them down.  He says he plans to finish the tattoo for her if she comes back to get in colored in.

First of all, can we talk about the fact that her eyebrows are gone?  Why?  They didn’t tattoo that area so was there a reason they had to be shaved off?  Maybe it helps the tattoo to look better?…….okay, I can’t stop laughing.  Nothing is going to make this tattoo look better.  I bet even Drake is laughing at this!  As a make-up artist, I know how much make-up is used to cover a tattoo really well.  So what do you do when it’s on your face?!  She’s not Mike Tyson.  She appears to be a beautiful woman. I have nothing against tattoos, I have a few myself and have been pressuring my fiance to get one as well. But you have to think about it really well.  I wish I could interview this women (if someone knows her, tell her to contact us!!)  I would love to know what she thinks about her decision now!

 




Pimples are never fun, even for celebrities

Keywords: miley cyrus, pimples, skincare

Her friend is sitting right there! how does she not give her the heads up?    How do you sit in the passenger seat of Mileys car and not tell her that the area where she just popped a pimple, now has a little bit of blood oozing out of it… It takes 2 seconds, hand the girl a napkin for crying out loud! You know her photo is being takes the second she steps out of her house, so why not do your part as a friend to make sure her skin is looking okay.

 

 

Miley clearly had a no makeup, relaxing, free kind of day yesterday-  One of those roll out of bed, throw something on quick, walk outside, drop the top on your $100,000 Mercedes and go get fast food, we’ve all been there… well, minus the Mercedes part haha!    Truth is, I love seeing celebrities in their natural state like this, it reminds the rest of the world that they’re normal people just like we are.

 

 

DailyMail put these 2 pictures side-by-side to show her skin in the nude on the left, and all done up at an awards show on the right.   We all know Miley is an attractive girl- when she wants to bring it, she brings it. And for those times where she just wants to relax and be free, she can do that too, at the risk of being ridiculed by the media of course.

 

 

As for her leaky pimple issue- I’ll share my little secret with you Miley:   For those MUST-POP pimples(because we all know we’re not supposed to be touching our face), I always blot the area down with some cold water several times.  Once I do that, then I dab a little astringent onto a cotton ball, and dab that over the open pimple.  You may feel a light sting, which is the alcohol touching the ‘open wound’,  don’t panic, its temporary, and it helps remove any bacteria that might be on the skin surrounding the pimple-   you don’t want bacteria hanging out around an open pimple, that’s asking for trouble.

 

Pimples stink, we all get them, they almost always pop up at inconvenient times, but it’s a part of life unfortunately.  Just make sure you don’t go clawing at your face and cause damage! If you MUST pop a pimple, make sure to treat it with care and you’ll notice much less redness when you’re done.




Daniel Alfredsson will return to the NHL for his 17th season

Keyword: ottawa senators, return, daniel alfredsson

 

 

The verdict is in and Alfie will be returning to the Ottawa Senators for his 17th season in the NHL and all with the same team.  There was much speculation lingering around this decision on weather or not he will return because for himself and most it certainly looked like it was time for a curtain call.  The Senators made a state about Alfredsson and his decision to return by saying:

 

“Daniel is an exceptional captain whose commitment to his teammates and to the great City of Ottawa is second to none,” said owner Eugene Melnyk. “Daniel expects a lot out of himself both on and off the ice so I fully understand how important a decision this was for him and his family. I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome and look forward to Daniel having a great year and adding to his long list of extraordinary achievements with our hockey club.”

 

 

“I’m excited to get ready for another season,” said Alfredsson. “I’ve been training for about a month and a half and my body feels a lot further ahead of where it was last year at this point. I expect to come into camp stronger and fitter than I did last year.”

 

 

“I spoke to my family (about the decision to return) and we are all on the same page — if I am motivated to continue to play, then they will be supportive of me playing. It really came down to asking if I had the motivation to come back and be happy about the decision to return. I definitely feel that way and know that I am ready and have more in the tank to give.”

 

Even though I am not a huge Sens fan even though hometown boy Matt Gilroy skates with them, it is nice to see someone I grew up watching come back for one last hooray.   Good luck man and take it easy on NY this season.

 

 




No make-up day for “The Snooks”

Keyword: Snookie, Jersey Shore, make-up, naked, natural

So where is the spray tan? Where is the piled on make-up and the orange bronzer?  Snookie went for a no-makeup look on Wednesday and wasn’t afraid to post pictures on her Twitter! The girl who once claimed to not even step into a gym without make-up is starting to mature before our very own eyes. I personally think this is a wonderful look for her.  I’m surprised to see that there is a natural beauty under all that junk she puts on her face. Her Twitter fans seem to agree!  Maybe we will start seeing a softer side to Snookie….
