I came across this adorable store in Brooklyn Hayden Harnett and for all of you who don't live in New York, they have a fabulous website too. They have some really cute summer handbags and accessories especailly if you are like me and take inspiration from your garden (cute flower prints).
Natalie Portman is a genius, according to her Goya's Ghosts co-star Javier Bardem. "I guess she was very young when she became famous, but her mind is perfectly structured," Bardem said at a press event this week. "She's so intelligent it's scary. When I was talking to her, I didn't know what to talk about because she knows a lot of things. I felt like a donkey."

Or, you can just click on their outfits for deets. Their hooded fleece coats and swing trenches are absolutely adorable. I'm also hoping they actually will carry those tights in those colors shown on the models.
Congrats, Old Naves. You've come a long way from shapeless, too-short T-shirts.
Ryan Gosling has signed on to co-star with Rachel Weisz in the movie adaptation of Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones. Directed by Lord of the Rings pro Peter Jackson, the film will begin production in Pennsylvania and New Zealand in October. The story revolves around a young girl who has been murdered and watches over her family - and killer - from heaven. Gosling will play the girl's father.
Jessica Simpson is launching a bikini line to go along with her rapidly expanding business ventures, which include a skincare empire, hair extension project, shoe and clothing lines and plans for lingerie designs. Simpson will reportedly debut the swimwear during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Miami next month. Featuring skimpy bikinis and more modest one-piece suits, the designs will be shown on models personally selected by the singer.
Oprah Winfrey is expanding her empire into the retail world with plans for a storefront close to her Chicago studio that will exclusively sell Oprah merch. A spokesperson for Winfrey's Harpo Inc. announced earlier this week that construction on the shop has begun kitty corner to Harpo Studios. The rep declined to give an expected opening date or discuss further details, saying many aspects of the store are still being planned.
Lindsay Lohan and Cameron Diaz also sporting the Myrte.
And I must say, I agree with most of the stars here and prefer the second rounder one better, the design combined with the shape which is just so much more flattering, makes it perfect.The one Rachel has on is different, but definitely not as flattering. The aviator style sloping down thing makes it look more masculine and a bit sad- should shades have personalities that is.
For the longest time I was lusting after these hexagonal ones. Because I thought, well, I already have squarish ones, why not have a hexagon one? And these look great. And I also liked the off-white color too. But alas, after trying them on several times, I had to finally admit that they are not for me. Maybe I've become so accustomed to large frames now that I just can't accept smaller frames anymore...
Then at the store I tried on these ones (the lower rounder ones) in purple and it looked awesome. This shape is flattering and yet still different with its large round metal frame, half silver, half purple. Now THIS is fashion. But alas after MUCH debating, I finally decided that I'd like to wear them for more than one season and with that half silver and half purple rim thing, it was too trendy for me
In the end, I bought a similarly styled paired sans the dual colored rims, from Marc Jacobs in brown (I know, it doesn't quite look brown here, but it is. I considered the purple ones and they're much pinker than this). While the metal frames and round shape style is still the same, this design is much simpler, more feminine and much more classic. The only downside is that this design is not very condusive to sticking it on my head like a hairband cause the nose thing gets in the way. But I'll live ;)

Usher and his fiancee, Tameka Foster, announced today that they are expecting their first child together this fall. "We are extremely excited at this point in our lives planning our wedding and the joy that comes with expecting our first child together," the couple said in a statement. "We hope people will be happy for us and respect our privacy during this happy period in our lives." This will be Usher's first child and Foster's fourth.
The procedure takes around forty-five minutes to an hour. Now I can't describe the whole, exact procedure because my eyes were closed the whole time but from what I understand, the facialist curled and glued the lashes around a small, round piece of plastic thing. The facialist also applied some perming chemicals onto the lashes. After 20 minutes, the facialist applied more chemicals. After another 20 minutes, the facialist used oil to remove the checials and glue and that plastic strip thing. Voila -you've got curled lashes.
OK, so the newly permed lashes look a bit clumped together (because not all the glue could be removed without the facialist scrubbing too hard,) but give it a few days and you'll look like you've got naturally curled lashes. This wasn't my first lash perm, but it was BG's. BG forgot to keep her eyes completely shut during the procedure so the chemicals stung her lashes a bit. So if you're planning to get your lashes permed, remember to keep your eyes shut tight!
Perming our lashes only cost us around HK$80 each, that's around US$10 each. It's totally worth it because curled lashes make one's eyes look so much more awake. Plus, now I don't have to curl my lashes or apply mascara on for my normal days. If anyone is trying to decide whether to get their lashes permed -do it! Anyone else had their lashes permed before?
