Mood Enhancing Foods – Berries & Chocolate

Keywords: food news, chocolate, berries, depression


Many of us try to “eat healthy.”  But what does that really mean?  Just maintaining a balanced diet?  Skipping the processed junk and opting for natural/organic choices?  If people start to see food as more than just a means to fuel our bodies, a whole world of natural remedies would open up to them.  It’s about eating to live instead of living to eat.


Berries, chocolate, and tea are a few foods that help to stabilize mood and combat depression.  Researchers have discovered that these foods contain mood-enhancing chemicals which are strikingly similar to those found in popular anti-depressant drugs.  And who wouldn’t want to a square of chocolate and handful of berries, washed down with a nice cup of tea, as opposed to a handful of pills?!


The chemicals in these foods bear structural similarities to valproic acid, which is sold under names like Depakene, Depakote and Stavzor.  While those who truly require an anti-depressant drug regiment are not advised to ditch the meds and switch to chocolate covered strawberries, including these foods in your well balanced diet will over time lead to improved moods.

I signed a 1 year contract, and all I got was this ridiculous Benz

Keywords: ethan moreau, mercedes benz, celebrity cars

NHL player Ethan Moreau’s Mercedes-Benz CL63 was up for grabs on eBay last month.  I didn’t follow it so I don’t know if it sold or not, but I snagged a few pics while it was up. Ethan, 36, recently signed a one year contract with the Los Angeles Kings for $600k this season.  As best I understand it, he was selling his car and starting over fresh in LA….. aaah yes,  that problem when you sign a piece of paper and make $600,000 and you have to decide what to do with the $160,000 custom Mercedes Benz sitting in the driveway of your probably crazy apartment/condo.

You, Ethan Moreau, are my idol for today.

Have you ever ripped your nail off?

Keyword: special effects, makeup, ripped nail


Special effects makeup is one of my specialties.  The bloodier the better in my opinion. I fell upon this video online and thought it would be fun to post.  It’s super easy to do too. It’ doesn’t have to be Halloween or April Fools Day to play a prank on a loved one!  I dare you to try this ripped nail look and see what kind of reaction you get!

If any of you do actually do it,  make sure to send pics my way! jill@westyleny.com

A while back I posted about my little cousin cutting her own hair in an article called “Playing Hairdresser”.   The truth is, this happen more often than you think. Check out these young ladies…

This one goes out to the aaaallll the laaaadiiiessss

Keywords: watch of the week. womens watch

The Chanel Premiere Classic.    This one has a few different models available, all based on this design, just different finishes and bezels and bands.

Absolutely beautiful watch.  In my opinion; picture #1 up above ^  with the ceramic band and diamond crusted bezel is the most perfect layout out of them all.


Prices are scattered anywhere between $4,000 and $16,000 and there was no clear pricing so I’m not spreading any lies here.  If you buy your lucky lady one,  feel free to send us a pic so we can see one of these on a real wrist.




Oops, sorry Jamie!

Keyword: Jamie Spears, extensions

It was only a few weeks ago that I said to someone “What ever happened to Jamie Lynn Spears?” It was like she popped out a baby and disappeared. Little did I know, she made her country music debut just about a month ago.  I had no idea!

So here she is, sporting a new look.  Well….a new look for her, I suppose. Does she not look just like Britney now?  I’m not knocking her. She clearly looks up to her older sister.

The 20 year old star began her career on Zoey 101 on Nickelodeon but was forced to leave after her pregnancy. I’m glad to see her back. I always thought she was adorable. She certainly has grown up a lot though.

Jamie was so excited to get her hair done, she posted on twitter with play by play updates. She first received a whole head of extensions to add length and thickness, then hair expert Mallory Baize colored the tresses before she posted a final picture.

I think she looks great. I wish her lots of luck on her new venture!
