Rihanna Falls… Oh No :O

24 Apr

Rihanna took a tumble while performing in France Wednesday night, but she didn’t let her spill stop the music.

The Barbados-born R&B singer was shimmying across the stage Wednesday night, singing her 2005 song “Let Me,” when her feet began sliding out from under her. Just barely catching herself in time, Rihanna managed to land on her knees and was soon back on her feet. Ever the pro, RiRi didn’t even miss a note.

How To Look Great In Pictures

22 Apr

From Jennifer Miller @ Realbeauty.com

Posing Alone: What Not to Do  

“Never stand fully facing the camera,” advises Miller. “Another important thing to watch out for is your posture — no slouching! And remember: It’s not a passport photo. Add some personality!”

Don’t feel uncomfortable about striking some poses in front of your mirror to practice, either. “It’s the only way you’ll know what angles best work for you,” Miller says.

Posing Alone: What to Do  

“Keep your head up and your shoulders back,” says Miller. “Keep yourself tall to slim yourself instantly.”

Turn your body three quarters to make yourself look thinner and more natural. Shift your weight to the back leg to “give shape and sass to your look,” says Miller.

To combat arm flab, put your hand on the hip facing the camera, which will immediately make your arm look trim.

Posing with a Friend: What Not to Do  

If you want to look great in photos, resist the urge to go over the top with cheesiness. “After a drink or two, it may seem hilarious,” Miller says, “but getting too gummy or toothy is never a flattering look for anyone.” Try a half-smile, which is sexy and intriguing.

Make sure to keep hands soft. “Don’t let your fingers hang weirdly,” says Miller, “and above all, avoid the claw-hand.”

Posing with a Friend: What to Do  

“The key to posing with someone else,” Miller says, “is to tuck yourself into your friend and really lean back. This puts you both at your best advantage.” You also want to make sure you keep your hair off the shoulder closest to the camera “so you open up your face.”

If you’re having trouble getting a comfortable, natural-feeling pose, Miller suggests breathing deeply and relaxing. “If you feel stiff, just shake it out,” she says. “It sometimes helps to look away for a moment and then throw a look to the camera.”

Cool Nail Designs You Can Do Yourself

22 Apr

I love getting my nails done but my polish always chips within 2 days ( no matter who I go to). Seventeen.com has articles on really cute nail designs that you can do yourself complete with instructions.  Look below for  my favorite:

How-To: Paint on one coat of pale pink polish, then take a wooden manicure stick and dip it into clear polish. Use it to pick up a rhinestone (the polish will act like a glue to help the gem stick) and place one at a time around the outer edge of each nail. Create another circle inside the first, repeating until your whole nail is filled. Seal all nails with a layer of clear top coat.
