Every now and then I find myself purposely looking online, on TV, or in a magazine to get some “thinsperation.” It’s a lot more common then you think. Especially now since it’s Holiday time and all most of us do is eat and there is no escaping the belly bulge once January rolls around.
Over the past year, some of the most well known celebrities have had serious body transformations, leaving the rest of us saying “I want to do that!” To be honest, there are no tricks, there are no secrets and there are no fad diets that can burn fat. I am guilty of attempting the Master Cleanse, and even though it helps flush out your system, it definitely doesn’t help you lose fat. The before and after photos below are of celebrities who lost weight (and lost a lot of it) by the simple and effective routine of eating well, consuming small portions, and exercising a few times a week. It’s really simple, and if it can work for them, it can work for everyone. Take a look at these celebrity slim downs.
One of the most well known weight loss stories is the American Idol star, Jennifer Hudson. Losing an incredible 80 pounds on the Weight Watchers diet, this singer/movie star said she never deprived herself of anything. She watched her portions, and exercised several times a week.
Kelly Osbourne in recent years has been in the spotlight for being overweight, in and out of rehab, and self destructing. Ever since she regained her confidence and learned how diet and exercise work, she lost an incredible 50 pounds! She looks amazing.
You’ve seen him in the movies Moneyball, The Sitter, 21 Jump Street, and Knocked Up, to name a few. Being known as the “fat funny guy,” Jonah managed to lose 40 pounds in 2011 by doing the normal routine of healthy eating and exercise. What a stud!
Here we have another American Idol star proud to flaunt her sexy new bod! Jordin Sparks has cut out bad fat and slimmed down to a comfortable size 6. Losing 30 pounds, her “secret” sounds like everyone else’s, portion control along with exercise.
Hello hot momma! Mariah Carey is looking like the girl we knew during her “Fantasy” singing days. Following the Jenny Craig plan, Mariah lost 30 pounds after giving birth.
No matter what holiday you celebrate, this is the season for giving. We all know women that deserve the best gifts out there and (as a woman) I can tell you that we love high-quality beauty products that are effective, easy to use and safe for our skin and body.
Over the past year I have had the pleasure of using products from the well known beauty brand, Chrislie Formulations. It’s easy to choose any beauty product, but Chrislie Formulations doesn’t sell just “any beauty product.” They are one of the only beauty brands out there that distribute products that are clinically proven to be safe and effective.
Lashem is one of Chrislie Formulation’s products and was developed to help the everyday woman keep her youthful glow. Their products reflect a healthy and natural lifestyle to accommodate everyone from the working woman to the stay at home mom. Whether you (or the woman you’re buying for) is looking for fierce new products to enhance her features, I can’t think of a better gift than the Eye AM Beautiful Set. Where else can you find an all-in-one beauty makeover available to anyone?
Included in this set is:
That is more than enough to make you (or your woman) happy! You can get all of this for the price of $140. For more information about ordering visit www.Lashem.com or call (800) 710 0915 today!
Like most of us, you may have over-plucked, thinly waxed or just not very attractive eyebrows. Luckily, sparse and malnourished brows can rejoice with Joey Healy Brow Renovation Serum. This paraben-free formula works to stimulate growth and thicken the hair follicles of your eyebrows. A combination of pentapeptides, glycoaminoglycans and hyaluronic acid are the key to the product’s success, containing a nutrient blend of properties that get eyebrows on the road to a lush recovery. Additional A, C and E vitamins and advanced moisturizing agents hydrate, condition and strengthen existing brittle brow hair. Botanical ingredients such as chamomile, white tea, licorice and cucumber heighten effectiveness with a powerful boost from nature.
How to Use:
Use twice daily for 6 weeks, then nightly thereafter. Apply in the morning after your skincare regimen and allow 10 minutes dry time before filling in with Luxe Brow Powder or Brow Architecy Stylo. Then, apply once more prior to bedtime. When used properly every day, thicker and fuller brows will appear in just two to three weeks.
Brow Renovation Serum retails for $125.00. To purchase, please visit: www.JoeyHealy.com.

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is the truth!
PEOPLE confirms that the couple that have been publicly together for over one year wed Sunday night at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., just outside of Charleston.
The reception took place in a white tent at the plantation on Sunday evening. Blake and Ryan bought a home together in Bedford, N.Y., earlier this year. They have subsequently been seen working out together at a local gym, as well as spending quality time with their families in New York and Vancouver where Ryan was born.
Reps for the two actors had no comment.
During this Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week, it’s not just the clothes and styles i’m looking at for the upcoming seasons. It’s the hairstyles too! With leading hairstylists working their magic on the models, I was able to snag some great tips from hair stylist Jeanie Syfu with TRESemme for what to look for in the Spring. I loved the beachy waves look during the Rebecca Minkoff show. So…here is what I got so you can try it out.
Overall Look: The look was beachy waves with polished ends
Hair Inspiration: The 80’s feel of the collection called for a relaxed, chic style. Hair had a matte texture and sleek ends to create a style that was casual, yet glamorous.
-Start by applying TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray and TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse throughout the hair and power dry with fingers for texture
-Smooth out ends with a Mason Pearson brush
-Take random sections of hair and using a 1” barrel curling iron, create curls through the mid-lengths, making sure to leave the ends out
-Use the flat iron to straighten ends and give the beachy texture a polished finish
-Spray lightly with TRESemmé Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo for a matte look
-Create a middle part with a comb and finish with a dime size amount of TRESemmé Smooth & Silky Anti-Frizz Secret Crème to fingertips, raking through the hair from roots to ends
Curling irons 1” and 1 ¼” barrels
Mason Pearson brush
Teasing comb and brush
-TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse
-TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray
-TRESemmé Smooth & Silky Anti-Frizz Secret Crème

Travel writing may seem like the dream job to most people. In most cases, they’re right. Being a travel writer has more “perks” then just about any other job and when you think about it, traveling and writing for a living is the life! You get to travel, write, meet interesting people, eat all kinds of different foods, do things you’ve never dreamed of doing and put your entire experience into a story to share with the world. Seems like a dream. What most people don’t see is the hard work and competitiveness involved in the profession. There’s a lot more to being a travel writer then just flying around the world on someone else’s expense. Although you may be saying, “Yea, right. I work hard behind a desk all day. Being a travel writer is a cake walk.” Well, think again and I guarantee you will cherish getting your paycheck every 2 weeks after you learn about what it takes to break into travel writing.
The job of being a journalist, for one, is one of the toughest industries to break into. You can go weeks, even months without getting paid. Don’t think that just because you see an article in Conde Nast Traveler that anyone can be published. It takes years of hard work, living on pennies and Ramen Noodles, dedication, a tremendous amount of talent and creating relationships with the right editors to maybe get there. If you want to work freelance, you’ll have to work twice as hard. Travel writing isn’t taking the easy way out of a normal 9-5 job, because technically you will need to work 24/7 for years until you grab the right opportunities.
If you’re thinking about being a travel writer, the best place to start is to get your own blog and start writing on your own experiences. The money won’t come for a while, but if you stick to it, the opportunities will present themselves.
I always love when celebrities come out with new products, alcohol being one of them. From Bethenny Frankel’s, Skinny Girl Margarita, to Sean “Diddy” Combs’s, Cîroc, a brand in alcohol is a powerful marketing tool for celebrities and bars/restaurants alike.
Timbaland is proud to be entering the realm of liquor entrepreneurs and launching his very own brand, LeSUTRA, a premium brand of sparkling liqueurs that will revolutionize the liqueur industry by satisfying a broad range of tastes. As the first of its kind to launch in four exhilarating flavors: blueberry, strawberry, grape, and peach, LeSUTRA is paving the way to a new experience in the luxury spirits market by infusing sparkling liqueur with premium vodka for maximum flavor and mixability, offering a fresh alternative to traditional spirits and champagne.
Sounds delicious and my kind of cocktail! The best part is that you can sip it on the rocksor mix it in a cocktail. Served over ice in a rocks glass, chilled in a champagne flute, shaken with ice and served neat in a martini glass, LeSUTRA’s invigorating taste makes it a superior choice.
“Everything that I create is groundbreaking and LeSUTRA is no different,” says co-owner and LeSUTRA partner Timbaland. “With its innovative ingredients and design, I’m confident that we’ll gain a loyal and eclectic consumer base. My infectious style has helped produce career-defining hits for artists worldwide, and now I’m guaranteeing another hit with LeSUTRA. “
LeSUTRA Sparkling Liqueur will be launching in NY, DC, DE, MD, MI and FL in August 2012, with plans to quickly expand nationally by the end of 2013. Check them out at: Facebook.com/DrinkLeSutra, or visit www.drinklesutra.com and follow us on Twitter @DrinkLeSutra.
