No matter your finances everyone should base their wardrobe off of staple/statement pieces. Using this method will expand your wardrobe providing you with multiple options and looks. In short, creating the illusion of a larger wardrobe.
Staple/statement pieces are (but not limited to):
And if you’re accident prone don’t worry I have some remedies that will assist you along the way to keep your staple/statement pieces in tact to maintain that pristine condition:
I’m a vegan, and I incorporate that into my work [by trying] to use natural, effective remedies
Treatment is just as important because you do not want to push the stain further into the fabric. [For] food stains, use the edge of a dull butter knife to gently remove residual food without rubbing the stain. [For] liquid stains, be careful not to rub the stain; simply blot it with a dry cloth, then attempt stain removal.
Curves are something to celebrate. And having cellulite (as 85% of women do) doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t feel good about yourself and the way you look. Try some bottom pampering today.
The word cellulite was first coined back in the seventies, but it’s no modern affliction. Just think of those Rubensesque beauties going about their everyday lives. They’d never make the cover of today’s Vogue, yet in their era they were considered the epitome of voluptuous sexiness.
Fashion has changed since then, and back in the days of yore, fatness (for that’s essentially what cellulite is – body fat) would have been synonymous with wealth. Nowadays the smaller your thighs, the bigger your wallet. Women dread surplus pounds, aspiring instead to a neat peachy behind and racehorse legs. And cellulite, which becomes worse as you get older, is viewed as a sort of degenerative disease.
Face it! You know the horror you feel when you cross your legs and the orange peel bulges out. It’s like viewing your first wrinkle or stretch mark. Somehow it’s the beginning of the end.
The truth is cellulite is just part of being a woman – nearly nine out of ten of us fall prey to it, including supermodels and Hollywood’s A listers.
There’s nothing disease-like about it, either – it’s not the result of modern toxins, say experts; rather it’s surplus fat held together by skin cells that have lost their elasticity. And it lurks about the areas of a woman’s body that are designed to lay down fat – backs of thighs, bottoms, tummies, even your upper arms. The result? Fat cells squishing upwards against your skin and causing a cottage cheese effect – like stuffing bursting out of an old cushion.
That’s not to say you have to embrace cellulite as part of your female-ness (that’s why we’ve written this book, after all). But before you get stressed, depressed and obsessed about the cellulite bits, take a moment here to get a perspective, and to celebrate your curves.
A friend’s husband once took a mold of her behind, which was, refreshingly, generously proportioned. He gave it to her as an anniversary present – a wonderful pumpkin of a bottom cast in bronze.
So first lesson is ‘remember, men love curves’. In fact men particularly love fleshy bottoms when they’re paired with a small waist; studies show a waist hip ratio of 0.7 is the magic formula most likely to get a man’s pulse racing.
Don’t forget too, that your curves are there for a reason; making babies, having babies, feeding babies, filling out bikinis/ridiculously expensive lingerie, that sort of thing.
They also give you pleasure – legs, bottoms, thighs, tummies – they’re all part of your healthy, functioning, living, breathing body. So think of a slightly dimply bottom as a sign of a rich, happy and fulfilling life.
Oh, and a spongy bottom is also handy at weddings and on bikes; pews and saddles can be so uncomfortable.
So let’s start by nipping that self-criticism in the bud. Time, instead, to celebrate that ass. Try some of these today:
Savor the good things about your bum and thighs – the excitement of slipping into new silky pants, that satisfying pain/exhilaration when you cycle up a hill, the sensation of rubbing lovely cream into your legs, someone else fondling your behind…. You get the idea.
Every day, promise yourself you’ll something that makes you feel good about your body – have something really delicious to eat, treat yourself a day spa, go for a swim, book a fantastic holiday. Doing something pleasurable can make you feel happy.
Stop buying clothes that don’t fit which you’re aiming to ‘diet into’. They make you feel worse about your body. Instead, buy yourself something big but gorgeous that you can wear now.
Make a mental list of your best bits – hair, feet, long, beautifully shaped fingernails, trim calves, firm boobs – stop focusing on your short-comings and acknowledge your glories.
Splash out on body treats: indulging really does boost your self-confidence – book a facial/manicure, buy new perfume, wallow in a luxurious, gorgeous smelling bath. Take pleasure in looking your best.
Start taking some exercise. It can boost your mood, improve your complexion, help you focus and give you confidence in your body.

There are frightening similarities between the death of Hollywood actor Paul Walker, leading man in the “Fast and Furious” movie series, and investigative journalist Michael Hastings.
Both men were killed in fiery car crashes in California, and both cars were burned beyond recognition, something that generally only happens in Hollywood movies, not real life.

Ah, the magic of Hollywood. Movie makers have nearly perfected the art of producing a film in one location and making the audience believe that it is taking place somewhere completely different. So, how do they do it? Well many Hollywood buffs take advantage of locations outside of California. Believe it or not one of those locations is Atlanta. While many cities, Atlanta included, welcome the filming of movies because it helps the local economy, there are some downsides too. There are often unforeseen damages that occur during movies but the real question is who picks up the tab to repair those damages? Well many major films not only have insurance to back the film but they also have their own risk assessors. These people visit a location before filming is set to begin and see if they can prevent as many accidents as possible because big delays can cost production studios big bucks. While these insurance companies often repair damage that is done, the cost also falls on the city.
The list of movies filmed in Atlanta is long but we’ll start with one movie franchise that recently made headlines and not because it was producing blockbusters. Tyler Perry’s film studio is located in Atlanta. His production company is known for movies such as For Better or Worse, The Haves and the Have Nots, Love Thy Neighbor and Madea’s Witness Protection to name a few. His studio went up in flames and cost $1 million in damage. While his insurance company will help repair damage done to the actual studio, the city had to foot the bill for first responders and other city employees who were called out to the site of the blaze.
Structural damage isn’t the only type of damage that can be caused by movie production; there is also environmental damage to consider. There are several reasons that movies cause environmental damage and one is their major energy consumption. Everything from lighting and keeping the set up to getting catering delivered causes an impact on the environment. A study was done that specifically looked at environmental damage caused by movie production and found that emissions in this field create more air pollution than most other major industries including aerospace manufacturing, clothing and the hotel industry.
So while there are risks associated with allowing major movie studios to come film in your city, chances are they won’t be stopping any time soon, especially in Atlanta. Georgia offers one of the biggest tax incentives for movie production studios in the country. Despite damages that might occur along the way, it has paid off, for now. The economic impact of bringing films to Georgia since the tax incentive was started has been more than $3 billion. Some damages like the use of city resources and environmental damages are hard to analyze especially while movies are still in production in Atlanta or will be soon. Any consequences from those damages might not be felt for years to come, so until then, the state is more focused on the dollars that are coming in.

Actually one can hardly find a purely natural face or body on the red carpet. Almost every Hollywood celebrity seems to have had “a little work done”. But the result of plastic surgery is rather controversial. It is a common practice to discuss celebrities’ photos before and after unhappy plastic surgery. But an excellent plastic surgery is a true way to a swift career, violent popularity, world-wide fame, as well as exorbitant honoraria. Today LifeToStar.com suggests you have a glance at the best plastic surgeries (before-and-after photos) of the beautiful, glorious, and wealthy Hollywood celebrities.
A plastic surgery is considered best when it results in little altering of the “natural beauty”.
A modern American actress MEGAN FOX gives the example of a miraculous transformation of a plain pretty girl into a languishing, charming lady. Thus many people consider her beauty artificial completely, but if you have a close look at the star’s photos, you’ll find a minute difference between those of today and those of the past. Most likely Megan resorted to lip correction and nose job. Plastic surgery at breast augmentation gives no rise to doubt. But a rare celebrity can resist the temptation!
The “Friends” star JENNIFER ANISTON when a youngster was a real “ugly duck”. Even now she hardly keeps in touch with her mother who thought of her daughter’s Hollywood career an utter folly “with such appearance”.
But by the “Friends” shooting Jennifer had lost weight. By the end of the TV project she had got rid of her peculiar Greek nose (her father was a Greek). In 2008 the actress resorted to the second rhinoplastics. Allegedly she had to correct her nasal septum because of labored breathing. Under the surgeon’s knife Jennifer’s nose gained a slimmer shape and now it looks quite natural.
Brad Pitt’s wife ANGELINA JOLIE used to lie on a patient plate. Sure, the celebrity is reluctant to discuss this topic with journalists and she usually denies any plastic surgery. But nevertheless Angelina once underwent rhinoplasty at narrowing her nose. After the excellent surgery she spared much time for fitness. The result surpassed all expectations as the actress’s beauty, charm, and sex appeal leaves no man indifferent!
Another Hollywood celebrity DEMI MOORE persuades that she has resorted to the help of plastic surgeons, but it had nothing to do with her face. At the same time experts catch her in archness. They say, the movie star HAS undergone rhinoplasty and corrected her squint. In addition, she’s enlarged her breast and made liposuction of belly, buttocks, and thighs. As a result, today Demi Moore looks admirable at her age!
An outstanding singer and a prosperous business lady VICTORIA BECKHAM must have corrected her appearance for several times. The recognized woman of fashion can obviously boast of nose job, change of eyebrow shape and lip contour. Besides Victoria enhanced her body by means of liposuction and breast augmentation.
You see, almost every Hollywood celebrity is the result of plastic surgeons’ job. You are not supposed to notice it. And that is the key to a GOOD plastic surgery.

When TV shows become popular, some movie studios will try to cash in on their success by turning them into feature films.
While some movies based on TV shows have become major commercial or critical successes, such as Mission Impossible, Untouchables and The Fugitive, there are those that are just plain disappointing.
Here are five TV shows that never should have become movies.
Wild Wild West (1999)
Starring Robert Conrad as James West and Ross Martin as Artemus Gordon, the Wild Wild West series from the 1960s is an innovative and exciting Western action show. The protagonists travel in an advanced railroad car and use hi-tech weapons to thwart the plans of tricky villains.
The big-screen version features popular actors such as Will Smith, Salma Hayek and Kevin Kline, but it leaves much to be desired. Unless you like a noisy, clumsy and poorly-scripted movie with shallow character development, avoid this one at all costs.
The Flintstones (1994)
The animated Flintstones series was a huge success in the 1960s, so it is understandable that some people would want to produce a feature film based on it.
John Goodman did a commendable job as Fred Flintstone, but Rosie O’Donnell was definitely not the ideal actress to play Betty Rubble. While she managed to mimic Betty’s legendary laugh somewhat perfectly, she hardly resembled her character physically. Poor casting, bad screenplay, bland humor and inappropriate storylines make this movie a critical failure.
Scooby Doo (2002)
The Scooby Doo movie is another adaptation of a popular animated series that received a lot of negative reviews. The TV show’s episodes have somewhat predictable endings, but are nonetheless engaging. Also, the series offers a kind of humor that can be appreciated by people of all ages.
The actors in the movie bear a close resemblance to the characters in the series, but they all failed to display the distinctive qualities of their characters.
The Mod Squad (1999)
One of the main reasons why the Mod Squad series was such a big hit in the 1960s was because of the great chemistry between Michael Cole, Clarence Williams III and Peggy Lipton, who played Pete, Linc and Julie respectively. With the storyline revolving around three youths going undercover to fight crime on the street, this series offered a lot of excitement from episode to episode.
The feature film version was ruined by uninspiring performances by Giovanni Ribisi, Omar Epps and Claire Danes.
The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle (2000)
The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle is a film adaptation of a TV series that was originally called Rocky and Friends. The series was one of the wittiest and funniest animated TV shows in the 1960s, but its big-screen version is a commercial disaster and generally disliked by film critics. It is a pity because it features talented actors such as Robert DeNiro, John Goodman, Carl Reiner, Jonathan Winters and Janeane Garafolo.
Many film adaptations of popular TV series are primarily made for the purpose of making a quick buck.

It’s every British musicians dream to crack America but it has proved notoriously difficult over the years. The same could be said for Hollywood actors and when it comes to sports we don’t play a huge amount of baseball and ice hockey across the British Isles. Despite the stereotype more and more British celebrities are now breaking the mold by making it big across the pond. Hollywood now boasts the likes of Christian Bale, Ton Hardy and James Bond himself Daniel Craig. It’s not just the actors stealing the limelight, UK musicians like Adele, Coldplay and now One Direction have proved big hits with US audiences. Here at vouchercloud we wanted to celebrate the success of our Brits in America so we have created a caricature infographic of some of finest homegrown talents (past and present) with big followings in the United States. Let us know who your favorites are?
Cinema goers are decreasing in numbers though movie profits are increasing in numbers. Gone are the days when people really enjoy watching a movie in a cinema. Today, we are accustomed of watching online movies in the comforts of our homes, tucked in blankets or lying on the couch. There are however still people who follow the rule that real enjoyment of a movie are associated with a cinema.
Before the dawn and spread of internet, we all were used to visit cinemas to watch the latest releases from Hollywood. Though many of us enjoyed being in a cinema hall, there were people and still there are people who annoy you to the extent of your nerves while watching a movie.
Let us recapitulate 10 most annoying things people do in a cinema.
There are people who think it is the right time to convince the person beside you that you were wrong in voting for Barrack Obama, people who are unable to grasp the plot and destroy the whole enjoyment with their stupid questions. There are some people who provide you with the running commentary about the movie and the stars.
With the arrival of smartphones, the movie goers are experiencing a unique kind of annoyance. You see people smartphones in their hands texting in frenzy without realizing the fact that they have come to watch a movie. The smartphone guys and girls feel it necessary to update their status on Facebook than enjoying the movie.
This kind of people comes to cinema and as soon as the movie begins they realize the fact that they are hungry so they start towards the doors blurring your vision. They come back with some snacks and kind of fast food. When you are in the half of movie their vital organs ask them to release pressure and they again start for the doors.
You feel yourself helpless when you hear some moans and groans few seats behind you. At one point it catches your attention and when you turn your head you witness a scene that Hollywood may not dare to shoot.
There is a category that feels all around them are unaware of the etiquette of watching a movie in a cinema. These people become real annoyance for others.
There are friends who believe that strength lies in numbers and they come together only to annoy you. They do not have their eyes on screen but on couples that may start love making. They shout in loud voices whenever there is a sex scene.
You are a loving husband and a real family man. Your wife does not want to miss a second of the movie and you are bound to take your little ones for their hygiene. You think your act of babysitting is creating reverence in the hearts of audience. You are but becoming real annoyance when you fail to shut your little one up who starts weeping in full volume at the sound of a door crack in the movie.
You just has taken a sigh of relief that person sitting ahead of you has settled in and your vision to the screen is clear. But you are wrong about the guy who has gain some kind of piles and he starts shifting his sitting poses constantly.
There are people who are less annoying to audience but great annoyance to staff as they mess up the place with all kind of liter they bring with them to enjoy the place for more than one and a half hour.
You just have started imaging what the cast of the movie have had experienced while doing a particular scene that your nostrils fill with the aroma of a hot BBQ, or snack and you just start thinking about the food.

I applaud Angelina Jolie and any other woman for taking the necessary medical steps to live a longer and healthier life for her family and Cancer is a HUGE deal so don’t think I am making light of it, but if I hear one more person give her kudos for having her breasts removed because she’s considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, I will scream!
Her breasts being removed is much more deeper than Hollywood beauty and beside the point! I think people are literally visualizing her breasts being hacked off, but that’s not the case. The procedure involves removing the tissue inside the breasts and replacing it with implants.
Besides, now Angelina Jolie will always have perfect, perky breasts, so her vanity is still in tact and I’m sure she got a pair that hold up better than the original. Of course if she decides to have more children, before having her ovaries removed (she has a 50% chance of developing ovarian Cancer), she will not be able to breastfeed; other than that the physical aspects of her decision were probably last on her list of worries. Angelina has said that she doesn’t feel less of a woman after the procedure and she shouldn’t because the breasts don’t make the woman. The woman makes the breasts!
Werk those new ta-tas, Angelina!
When it comes to men in their underwear, leave it to Hollywood to create some of the most memorable images in popular culture. In Hollywood films, showing a male character in his underwear gives the viewer an opportunity to connect to the primal inner workings of a character without overexposure or gratuitous nudity. It seems to be a pretty popular technique that Hollywood has used for years and it appears that the trend isn’t slowing down. Who doesn’t enjoy a glimpse into the inner workings of a character’s motivation?
Here is a “brief” overview of some of the most famous underwear scenes in film.
This is just a sampling of the fine movies in which Hollywood has paid homage to men in their underwear. The coupling of vulnerability and sexiness is a winning combination. Actors shouldn’t get to have all the fun. Why not recreate one of your favorite movie scenes in underwear?
