Miley Cyrus Is Pregnant By Some Mystery Guy?

Miley Cyrus Is Pregnant By Some Mystery Guy?

Miley Cyrus is featured on the front cover of the new issue of “Life & Style” magazine. In this particular issue, the magazine has opted to fill her uterus with the baby of some unknown guy. Did Miley have a bunch of one night stands — of which resulted in a pregnancy?

We are hard-pressed to believe that Miley wouldn’t be careful with her sexual decisions, but stranger things have happened. Either way, if she is knocked up, then naturally the next question is who is the father? We already know that it couldn’t possibly be Liam Hemsworth — they broke up a while ago.

Any guesses here?

What to Buy Your Goth for Christmas

What to Buy Your Goth for Christmas

Their parents might think them a totally different sub-species, but buying gifts for Goths doesn’t need to be the scary experience many imagine. Style will of course vary from person to person, but there are a few general rules to the gothic look, try these for gift ideas:

Jewellery

A no brainer really: Goths love jewellery. Anything Victorian in style, or heavily featuring Gothic elements such as skulls, fairies, or crosses. A few really popular jewellery materials for Gothic fashion are leather, velvet, chains and studs, all in silver or metal – gold, not so much. Of course, black is best! Another common form of jewellery worn by Goths are body jewelry plugs – plugs are worn when piercings are being stretched or expanded, and come in a variety of sizes, colours and styles. If you’re looking at buying your Goth body jewelry or plugs, make sure you know which gauge they are using. There’s a huge range of body jewelry & plugs available on www.spencersonline.com.

Makeup

The pale makeup and dark eye look which is synonymous with the Gothic style is all a matter of taste. If you haven’t seen them wearing makeup four shades too light for them, don’t buy it! Safe cosmetic options to buy as gifts for your Goth are a good quality black kohl eyeliner, or black liquid eyeliner for doing winged eye makeup, and a few different nail varnishes. Black, blue and purples are the colours to go for!

Hair Care

While the obvious hairstyle is black, the trends are changing to include really bright colours also – pinks, purples, blues and greens. If they’re sticking to good ol’ black instead, a straightening iron and hair protectants make a great gift!

Books

Get them interested in the Gothic movement aside from appearance, by buying them a set of classic Gothic literature. Think about Dracula, Frankenstein, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, some Edgar Allen Poe – there are so many amazing examples of Gothic literature available. Pop into your local bookstore or browse Amazon.com, you’ll be surprised what you find.

Black Purse

Ideal for our Goth girl! Invest in a good quality leather or velvet purse and it will never leave her side. Every girl needs a good handbag, and this one definitely won’t just sit at the back of her closet gathering dust.

Spooky Home Décor

Skulls. Skulls everywhere. The spookier the better! You can buy almost anything made in some sort of skull shape or pattern – bedspreads, teapots, and lamps: there are some really cool options out there now. Some designers have even taken a leaf out of the book of Mexican Gothic, by making Dia de Los Muertos inspired home wares and crafts. Use your imagination!

Gift cards

Before you grumble, I know, they aren’t the most inventive gift idea. But they are still great! Buy your Goth an iTunes voucher, or a gift card to their favourite cosmetics or shoe store. This way they are guaranteed to come home with something they love. (and it’s a win-win if you’re really truly stuck!)

Have a Goth in your life who is difficult to buy for? From body jewelry plugs to gothic literature, try some of these options and let us know if you have any suggestions of your own.

Eye Makeup Trends That Will Make Men Wink At You

Eye Makeup Trends That Will Make Men Wink At You

The eye makeup trends keep changing from nude eyes to the smoky look to under eyeliner. The type of eye makeup you wear depends largely on the occasion. When getting ready for the date night remember the eye makeup is different from the makeup for girls luncheon. Some of the eye makeup tips that you can use are:
Evoke the classic sophistication with thick and simple line of black eyeliner. It is a great way to intensify the romantic look. Use gel liner in place of pencil for the perfect look.

Even though you are blessed with naturally long lashes, wearing false lashes helps intensifying the eyes. If you want to add the drama wear a layer of strip of lashes.

For the flirty look get your shimmers on. You can safely wear the shimmers both in day and night. Carefully with the sparkly colors in bronze, silver, gold, metallic green or metallic blue. The glimmer eyes will brighten your eye and make you look awake and fresh.

One way to attract the attention of your friends is by creating a perfect frame. Perfectly plucked eyebrows helps in creating a bold look. This is perfect for all occasions.

Never hide your eyes behind heaps of makeup. Even a concealer is enough to hide the dark circles, mascara and neutral eyeshadow. You can keep this same look throughout the day. For a seamless look switch your lipstick from pale pink in the morning to deep cherry red at night.

But the most recent trend of under eyeliner is the best. Try shades of blue, pink and green. For a modest look, try a thin under the eye colored line.

Now that you know about the eye makeup, it is best to buy only best of brands of eye makeup products and brushes. You need not worry about the price associated with these products as you can find the promotional and discount codes on LavishCoupons.

Jennifer Aniston Will Raise Her Baby Alone!

Jennifer Aniston Will Raise Her Baby Alone!

Jennifer Aniston appears on the cover of the new issue of OK! magazine and reportedly, she is pregnant by her fiance Justin Theroux. To make matters worse, the tabloid is also reporting that she is set to raise their baby all by herself.

To put matters in a better perspective, a rich person raising a baby alone can be such a hardship — if it’s even true, right? Seriously, if Jennifer is really pregnant, she is going to be just fine. She already has a great support system in place (friends and family) and she has gobs and gobs of money.

Seriously, though. Who is buying all of these stories about Jennifer being pregnant and raising their baby all alone? Whoever you are, you are part of the problem, so please put down the tabloids and back away slowly.

Amanda Bynes: 'I'm Lucky To Be Alive!'

Amanda Bynes covers this week’s edition of In Touch Weekly and inside they claim that she is lucky to be alive. Certainly that could be true, considering all that she has already been through. She has had a serious run-in with mental illness — which landed her in the psych ward for treatment. Prior to that, she has had run-ins with the police and brushes with drug use. All of that is not to even mention her crazy Twitter antics…

After her parents reined her in, she has gotten the help that she needs. She is apparently going to fashion school and is on her way to having her life back on track. Kudos to her for making her comeback. We just can’t wait for the time that she gets back on Twitter and starts blathering on about ugly people. That’s a win-win for everyone, don’t you think?

Instant Checkmate’s Tips For Avoiding Stalkers Like A Celebrity

Instant Checkmate's Tips For Avoiding Stalkers Like A Celebrity

It feels bad to break someone’s heart. But it feels worse when your former lover deals with their grief by camping out in your bushes so they can peer into your home with a pair of binoculars. Stalkers are scary, and if you don’t know how to deal with them, it might leave you feeling paranoid and anxious all the time.

If you want to know how to handle a stalker, you should turn to people most experienced with avoiding them: celebrities. Their constant media exposure seems to attract unhinged weirdos from all over the country, so famous performers are typically pros at dealing with the unwanted attention of strangers with a warped sense of boundaries. Keira Knightley, star of the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, had to shake off no fewer than six stalkers during the course of her career.

If you’re worried about people who may be invading your life in ways that make you uncomfortable, keep these five tips in mind.

1) Perform A Background Check

How can you know if someone has a history of stalking behavior? It’s not like creepers wear signs that say “I can get crazy clingy, so watch out.”

One surefire method is by performing a criminal background check on your stalking suspect. Since criminal records are 100% available to the public, you can instantly learn if anyone was slapped with a restraining order or has been charged with domestic violence. If you discover through a background check that someone you know has a history of hurting others, you’ll know to stay far away.

2) Lock Your Doors

Just because you have lived in a safe neighborhood for years, doesn’t mean that you should be lulled into a naive sense of security. Earlier this year, J Lo learned the value of a secure home when a stalker waltzed into her house in the Hamptons and stayed there for six days before being caught. Don’t make it any easier to break into your home — deadbolt your door every time you leave the house.

3) Be Wary Of Who Follows You On Social Media

Not all stalkers are bold enough to follow you around in person. Some will simply gather details about your habits and whereabouts by checking out your Facebook or Twitter account. On social media, as the Instant Checkmate blog referenced, oversharing caused problems for several A-listers in 2008 and 2009 when they were robbed by “The Bling Ring.” This group of teenagers followed celebs like Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Lindsay Lohan on Facebook to track their habits. When the stars weren’t home, the young burglars broke into the celebrities’ houses and made off with their jewels, cash, and designer clothes.

Protect yourself from people who do reconnaissance on you through social media by limiting the amount of personal info you reveal online and only friending people you know in real life.

4) Stop Problems Before They Start

It doesn’t hurt to let your stalker know, in no uncertain terms, that their weird advances are not appreciated. According to private eye Mark Chinapen, who has helped many stars ward off stalkers, simply confronting a stalker and telling them to stop their behavior usually gets them to back off.

5) Get The Police Involved

Remember, stalking is a serious matter. If you feel that someone is harassing you, you should immediately inform the police just so they have a record of the incident on file. If your stalker is persistent, or worrying you, you could contact the authorities to get a temporary restraining order or Order of Protection. After a stalker broke into the home of pop singer Rihanna, she was granted a 100-yard temporary restraining order against the man. While the force of law should be enough to keep stalkers away, be aware that many have no qualms about violating a restraining order. A restraining order on file is no replacement for your own due diligence against the weirdos of the world.

4 Reasons to Embrace Cold Weather Cardio Exercises

4 Reasons to Embrace Cold Weather Cardio Exercises

The holidays might be over, but winter is still in full-swing. Cold temperatures and shorter days make it tougher to stay active, but keeping your routine of cardio exercises in the winter can help you stay healthy—physically and emotionally.

Do you still need more motivation to get out of your warm living room and out into the cold? Well lace up your running shoes, fill up your BlenderBottle®, and start putting foot to pavement! Here are 4 of Shape‘s top reasons to embrace cold weather cardio exercises:

1.It’s the ideal weather for running.

It might not be fun, huffing and puffing in below-freezing temperatures. But the fact is that the colder the weather, the less the heat stress on your body. Running naturally warms you up, so if you can get through the initial shock, you’ll warm up quickly… just keep moving!

2.Running is a great tool for preventing winter weight gain.

We’ve all fallen victim to winter weight gain. When it’s cold outside, nothing sounds more appealing than curling up in front of the fire. You can still do that—just balance it out with some cardio exercises. The only thing that feels better than a relaxing evening inside is a relaxing evening inside after a nice run.

3.Running can help prevent SAD.

As the days become darker and colder, lots of people suffer from Seasonal Affect Disorder (SAD). Studies show that running in the cold produces more than just happy thoughts of spring weather. It releases hormones in the body that combat depression, create positive mood states, and give you more energy.

4.Running will keep your metabolism going strong.

Ever feel like hibernating through January and February? We might not sleep through the winter like bears, but our bodies are programmed to operate with a slower metabolism. Staying active with a steady routine of winter cardio exercises actually “tricks” your body into keeping a higher metabolism rate.

Finally, don’t forget to warm up properly before you head out into the cold! Exercising in the cold has lots of benefits, but the cold shock can put a lot of strain on your muscles.

 

How do you stay active when the weather gets colder and less welcoming?
