Channing Tatum Teases "Magic Mike XXL" Poster

Tuesday, February 03, 2015

Do you remember seeing Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, and Adam Rodriguez shake it on stage for the film, "Magic Mike?" Well, they're coming back this summer with a hot new sequel!

Mega hottie Tatum released the above photo as our first look at the highly anticipated (don't judge)  "Magic Mike XXL." Yes, we only get a glimpse at daddy-of-one Tatum in the one-sheet, but I bet this is only the beginning of a lot of hot promos in the near future.

Here's the official synopsis from Warner Bros:

Picking up the story three years after Mike (Tatum) bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, “Magic Mike XXL” finds the remaining Kings of Tampa likewise ready to throw in the towel. But they want to do it their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, and with legendary headliner Magic Mike sharing the spotlight with them. On the road to their final show, with whistle stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances and make new friends, Mike and the guys learn some new moves and shake off the past in surprising ways.

Cara Delevingne Goes Au Naturale for Spring John Hardy Campaign

Thursday, January 22, 2015

Supermodel Cara Delevingne is one of the hottest models right and there's no question why. I won't deny having a major girl crush on her, and I can't imagine anyone seeing her for the 1st or 100th time not falling in love.

With messy bed head and brows that have surpassed "fleek" status, Delevingne shows off some of the newest pieces from the John Hardy Spring 2015 collection in sexy new ads that just hit the net. The deliciously dangerous bracelet shown above is part of the Naga Collection and it features the head of a dragon! I don't see the specific one the British babe is wearing on their website, but the Double Coil Bracelet with Dragon Head in sterling silver and 18k bonded gold runs $1,595.

I'd love to own the one she's wearing to spice up a LBD in the most original way possible. The other images from the campaign are equally as smoldering. Check them out below:

Watch Your Food Portions for Optimal Weight Loss

Sunday, January 18, 2015

You know that saying, "You are what you eat"? As I struggle to find the perfect balance between food and exercise for optimal weight loss in the new year, I've learned that it's not only about what you eat, but also how much of it that can tip that scale in your favor.

My first DeliverLean Breakfast

When I decided in December to finally take the bull by the horns and commit to changing the way I view food, I knew it wasn't going to be easy. We live in a world where food and alcohol flows freely and we view the consumption of both as something we do for pleasure. Don't get me wrong; preparing and eating food shouldn't be a daunting task. But you should keep in mind that whatever you do put in your body, is going to directly affect the way your body functions.

I've been quite lax throughout my life about the quality of food I eat. But the older I get, the more difficult it is to ignore the pounds that are adding up and the level of difficulty required to get rid of said pounds. So when a representative from DeliverLean reached out with the opportunity to try their service, I was excited!

On Monday and Wednesday I received meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner for two days and on Friday I received my final meals for the week. I was happy that ahead of my deliveries I was able to alert the staff of allergies or ingredients I didn't like. So a recipe called for zucchini, it was replaced by asparagus--- one of my favorite vegetables!

What surprised me the most about the experience is the size of the portions. I snapped a photo and showed a friend my dinner one night, she was stunned at the amount of rice I was given. She said, "I easily eat at least 2 times that amount of rice for dinner." I'm not sure if it's a Hispanic thing, but we love pairing rice--- and lots of it---with nearly every dish. But by the end of the meal, I was left completely satisfied. 

The other thing the meals pushed me to do was try new dishes and ingredients I had been weary of having in the past. I once had a smoothie that included kale that convinced me I hated the healthy green leaf. But when I tried their "Alaskan Baked Salmon with Sautéed Kale and Roasted Pineapple Coconut Brown Rice," there was no turning back. Hello!? I love kale.

I'm a kale fan now!

DeliverLean is a fantastic service that provides delicious meals at affordable prices. They taught me about portions, how to open my mind to new ingredients, and that decreasing my cravings for the fatty foods I previously enjoyed wasn't as tough as I once thought. Heating the food takes no more than two minutes, unless you include time to pretty up the images to share on social media.

There are a variety of options to choose from should you have any special dietary requirements. So if you need gluten free, Paleo, Vegetarian, or Vegan, they've got your back.

Along with trying out DeliverLean last week, I did a combination of workouts at the gym, yoga, and a Core Fusion Boot Camp class at Exhale at The Epic Hotel. By weeks end, I had lost one pound the healthy way. Yes, this is only the beginning of my journey, but I feel great and I'm not missing fast food in the least. I'm also full of energy and positivity.

Here are a few more photos of my meals. Sorry they aren't as pretty as I'd like, but I was anxious to eat my yummy food!

Steal My Beauty Look: Kat Dennings at People's Choice Awards

Thursday, January 08, 2015

As much as I loved Kat Dennings black Ludmila Corlateanu dress from the People's Choice Awards, it was her makeup that really stood out. Avon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Anderson shares the list of products she used on the "2 Broke Girls" star, so you can recreate the look at home.

"The look we created tonight for Kat is all about modern romance. It's feminine and sexy and complements the black lace dress she's wearing," Andersen said.

Even though Beth Behrs, Kat's cute co-star who joined her on the red carpet and not boyfriend Josh Groban, romance was the theme Lauren chose for the evening. Here is the breakdown of the products she used and how to get the look:


Lauren applied Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation with Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation Illuminator to the face and added Chanel Powder Blush in Rose Petale to the cheeks.


Lauren then blended all of the shades from the Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Mocha Latte to create a brown smoky eye before lining the eyes with Avon Mega Effects Liquid Eye Liner in black. For a dramatic finishing touch, Lauren applied a strip of false lashes and two coats of Avon Big & Daring Volume Mascara in Blackest Black. 


To complete the look, Lauren applied Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Cherry Jubilee.

Lilly Pulitzer Partners with Target

We're not even halfway through January 2015 and Target is announcing one of their most epic collaborations to date: Lilly Pulitzer for Target. Bringing the fun colors and patterns directly from Palm Beach, Florida, the 250-piece collection will hit stores this spring.

Holy gold-toed espadrilles: your home and your body are never going to be the same! Target (pronounced- tar jay) held an ultra-fab fiesta in New York City this morning to announce the collaboration for lucky local editors. According to A Bull's Eye View,"the limited-edition collection features 15 exclusive prints, which are original works of art, created by Lilly Pulitzer artists specifically for this modern collaboration."

“This spring, we wanted to offer our guests a collection that embraced color, print and pattern in a bold, fresh way,” said Stacia Andersen, senior vice president, apparel and accessories, Target. “As we started to think about the perfect partner to collaborate with, Lilly Pulitzer was the clear choice given the brand’s inspiring heritage, authority with print and pattern and resort-chic aesthetic.”
