Former Knick Josh Harrellson getting a long look by the Heat

Keywords: jorts, josh harrellson

 

Josh Harrellson was an interesting player for the Knicks last season. Unfortunately, he spent a good majority of his time injured and was later traded for Marcus Camby. And then the Rockets cut him. The dude known for rocking jean shorts has had a rough go of it this past year, but now Jorts will get a look from the reigning NBA champions. Harrellson is a versatile player that could make the Heat bench even deeper than it already is. Jorts was one of only 3 players to average 9 rebounds and at least one 3 pointer per 36 minutes played. And maybe he can bring a little bit of fashion down to Miami as well.

 




Just bend and snap…very Legally Blonde!

Keyword: scunci, flower clips, bend snap

Scunci’s Bendini has been around for at least a year now.  You can get all kinds of clips in different colors and shapes.  It was about time they came out with a floral collection!  So many brides are using flower accents in either their hair, or for their bridal party.  These are a great accent to any hair.

They also have great lasting power.  The way the go in leaves them very secure. You won’t have to add bobby pins to them.  Basically you stick the comb in, best the flower forward and snap it into place!  The bend and snap!! haha

 

Wear one in place of a head band when you decide to wear your hair down, or make your ponytail more elegant by snapping on of the top of it.  There are so many options!  I say, buy them all!! ;)




Turn up the heat

 

Keyword: cold, shower, hair

Did you know that cold showers are good for your hair and skin? Yeah…tell that to my body now that it’s 30 degrees here in NY!! They say that you should always end your showers with a shot of cold water. It will help both your hair and skin by closing up your pores. Since the warm water opens them up, its good to close them when you are done washing to prevent bad bacteria from getting back in. For your face, it will also help prevent dark circles as it makes your blood vessels constrict. About a year ago the hot water in my bathroom sink stopped working so I became accustomed to washing my face each morning with cold water. It was hard to get used to at first….especially in the winter. But now that my hot water is back, I still don’t use it. My face has never felt better since I stopped washing it every morning and night with hot water. It’s also a refreshing way to wake yourself up in the morning :)

Is that pizza sauce?

First I have to apologize to all who cannot view Flash, but this video was too good not to post! If you cannot view it and would like to, you can find it here ‘Hold The Hair’.

I’ve worked a lot of weddings and I have been lucky enough to not have a Bridezilla *knock on wood*.  This girl is crazy….super crazy!  It seems that none of her bridesmaids even want to give her the time of day and I don’t blame them! I’d love to high five the girl who put pizza sauce in her hair!

 

I would just like to say that no wedding should be so stressful that you act like this.  When planning your wedding, try not to lose sight of what a wedding is all about….a celebration of your love for each other. If you feel like you are becoming a bridezilla, take a step back and breath!!




Floral-Printed Jeans

Topshop.com, $80

Forever21.com, $26.50

My sister has been complaining to me all weekend that she “can’t find floral-printed jeans anywhere for under $200″. As soon as she said that to me, I took it as a challenge. We all know that I am OBSESSED with printed pants, and floral jeans rank as one of the top subs in my category. I am obsessed with the 2 pairs above from Topshop, and though the pair from Forever XXI are less colorful than I prefer, they are still adorable and WAY affordable! Would you wear floral printed jeans?




One guys story of domestic abuse

Keyword: bad haircut, abuse, domestic, beating

All of us at the we___ny.com sites do not take lightly to domestic violence. Usually when you think of abuse amongst couples, stereotypically we assume the female to be the victim.  This is not always the case! Abuse can come from all sorts of people.  There have been cases of children abusing their parents, grandparents abusing their grandchildren, or in this case a wife abusing her husband…..over a bad haircut?!

 

A few short days ago, Daily Mail posted an article about Male Domestic Violence. Here is an excerpt I found interesting:

 

“The first time my ex-wife’s temper turned from vicious insults into violence was after I’d had a haircut she didn’t like. She dragged me down the hall by my hair, punching the back of my neck. 

Soon after, she repeatedly hit me on the head with a telephone receiver after she didn’t approve of the way I’d spoken to my mum.

And, most absurdly, she set about my shins with a child’s plastic golf club after I’d hung my underwear out to dry without folding it the right way.”

 

You didn’t like his hair so you beat him?! Really?!  How bad could the haircut have been?  If it was too long he could have simply went back to have it re-cut.  Or if it was to short…IT GROWS BACK!  My heart goes out to this poor man.  No one should live a life of abuse!

 

If you suspect you, or someone you know is a part of domestic violence please contact The National Domestic Violence Hotline at  1-800- 799-SAFE.
