Kim Kardashian "Beyond Thrilled" by Kourtney's Pregnancy!

Kim Kardashian, Mason Disick

Some welcome happy news in Kardashian Kountry today in the form of the joyous announcement of Kourtney's second pregnancy.
And since no one supports each other quite like this reality brood, we knew it was only a matter of time before the close-knit gang expressed excitement at being two-time aunts, uncles and grandmas.
And they didn't disappoint—even though they have known for a little while now.

Kourtney said that she found out the happy news five weeks ago, while taking a pregnancy test (which, yes, would peg the happy news as breaking right around the time of that other Kardashian family bombshell). So it's no surprise that auntie Kim Kardashian was first out of the gate to gush over her sister's baby-on-board.
"I have some amazing news to share with you all!" Kim posted on her blog this morning. "Kourtney and Scott are expecting their second child!"
"This is such a blessing and the whole family is beyond thrilled! I just know Mason will make the best big brother and I can't wait to meet my new little niece or nephew! Congratulations Kourtney and Scott. Xo."
So she was wrong—motherhood is in her future, just not hers personally. Congrats, Kourtney and Scott!

More Fashion Tips.....


IThe first step in achieving effortless chic is to understand how to dress for your body shape. As there is no standard definition of what the perfect body shape is, we can all embrace our shape and who we are. The second step is to know our assets whether it is long shapely legs, a small waist or sculptured arms; and dress to enhance those features. The third step is to accept the parts that you are less than pleased with and dress to de-emphasize them. The fourth step is to consider the style of dressing that you are most comfortable in, whether dresses, trousers, jeans or skirts; and focus on finding the best cuts for you. Sometimes it is good to experiment a little as pieces you have shunned could end up being the most flattering.

A functional and fun wardrobe, should have some timeless pieces; a good blazer, dress trousers, a “can’t go wrong” little black dress and the most comfortable court shoes you can afford. It is worthwhile to build a wardrobe with these initial investments (the expensive ones). After those key pieces one can start adding fun basics and accessories to complete the look.

When dressing up to go out, if you think you are spending too much time getting ready, stop. It's better to get dressed on a whim because you make instinctual choices. Go bold instead of dainty and do not be afraid to wear something oversize with something body conscious. The “chicest” looks these days are indeed all about contrasts. Anything ladylike or classic should be paired with something modern and cool. Don't wear everything from one designer, one season, or with one theme and remember sometimes, something wrong is right.

Spot the signs of the eventual divorce - 'Kourtney and Kim Take New York':

'Kourtney and Kim Take New York': Spot the signs of eventual divorce

E!'s Kardashian reality franchise kept chugging in the US with the season premiere of "Kourtney and Kim Take New York." Of course, there's been a major change: One of the central couples - Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries - split up before the show could make it to air.

To remedy that, the premiere kicked off with an acknowledgement that Kim and Kris' marriage lasted for all of 72 days with a montage of the media's coverage.
The show then flashed back to eight weeks prior, when newlyweds Kris and Kim, who had never lived together before, moved into the Gansevoort with Kourtney, her sometimes-boyfriend Scott Disick and the couple's baby, Mason. It was only downhill from there.
At one point, Kris gets ticked off because Kourtney indulges in some naked yoga - complete with a nude yoga instructor, which Kris was none too pleased about.
"Kris, you don't treat people like that, I don't care how uncomfortable you are," Kim yells. "You are so immature I can't take it."
The New Jersey Nets player yelled back, "How rude is it that there's a naked guy in my house...You can't take it? I can't take it."
When they weren't bickering over yoga in the buff, they were butting heads over their odd couple ways: Kris couldn't handle all of the press at a "Welcome to New York" celebration, and also disregarded Kim's tidy tendencies. When Kim gets upset because he stepped on and messed up her toenail, Kris told viewers, "Kim is a classic over-reactor."
The 26-year-old wasn't pleased to share his newlywed space with a baby, and also wasn't happy living in the Big Apple. Finally, he tells Kim, "I love you so much, but....I think I'm gonna go to Minnesota to train." , Kim asks, "We're gonna live separate? Like a long-distance marriage?"
"Kourtney and Kim Take New York" is only one episode in, but we already know the answer to her question - instead of a long-distance marriage, they ended up opting to not have one at all.
 I feel all these should have been sorted out even before the couple tied the knot or what do you guys think?

The Rules of LIPSTICKS!

Lipsticks are back in a rather big way, making fashionistas lips look strong, rich and thoroughly refined. Here are the rules for doing lipsticks right, right now.

    Exfoliate the lips once or twice a week, and then follow with a balm.

    Shimmers can look cheap. Look for lipsticks with a creamy finish instead.

    Choose a bright shade based on your lips' natural colour-not your skin tone. Women with pale lips look best in cherry red or coral; for natural reddish lips, try hot pink, orange or cranberry; for dark lips, brick red and burgundy are ideal.

    The nude lip colour is slightly brighter or deeper than your skin tone. If you're pale, look for somthing with a hint of pink, those with yellow or olive undertones or dark skin look best with sandy beiges.

    Blue or Black based shades that are too dark can be severe, aging and even a little bit scary. Look for        lipsticks with berry undertones instead.

    Liner is no longer a must as today's lipsticks dont bleed. To enhance sexylips, use a pencil that matches your lips and not your lipsticks.

Conrad Murray's Mother Pleads for a Light Sentence: "He Is Sorry for What Happened to Michael"

Conrad Murray's defense team has brought out the heavy artillery: a note from mom.
Since the physician was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the June 25, 2009, death of Michael Jackson, Murray's attorneys have amassed several dozen letters from his friends, family, patients and colleagues in an effort to get the judge thinking more about probation than prison when it comes time to sentence Murray.
"Nothing like this has ever happened to him before," asserted Murray's mother, Milta Rush, in a letter obtained by E! News. "He has never been in trouble with the law before and I am barely standing, scared and worried sick about him being incarcerated."

Even if L.A. Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor sentences him to the maximum penalty of four years in state prison, says veteran defense attorney Troy Slaten, "It won't make too much difference because of the realignment law that went into effect Oct. 1."There is just no room for him in state prison, so he will go to county jail," he continued. "And there is no room in county jail for him either. He will probably do 10 to 20 percent [of his sentence], but it's entirely up to the sheriff. And the sheriff doesn't want him county jail, it is too much risk for the sheriff. He is probably going to be entitled to some kind of alternative—work release or house arrest."

Due to who the victim in the case was, Murray would most definitely be considered a high-profile inmate.
"He is not going to be riding the bus up to San Quentin," Slaten added. "I just don't see that happening."
Neither does L.A. County District Attorney Steve Cooley, who called the new law of the land a "completely potentially failed system."
But Murray's mother is hoping that her son, who has been locked up since his conviction on Nov. 7, won't have to spend any more time behind bars at all.

"I sympathize with Mrs. Jackson as a mother," Rush's letter to the judge continued. "I feel her pain for having lost her son...I am sorry for her loss. Judge ....

''Pastor Conrad is my son and as a mother I must say I know him inside out. He is sorry for what happened to Michael and had no ill intent towards him. I humbly beg for your heartfelt consideration of everything I have said about Conrad, and ask for your compassion and leniency in giving him probation or community service."

Murray is  in court at 8 a.m, Tuesday, 29th November, 2011 for sentencing.

Top Ten: Fashion Habits You Need to Break

Yeah, you have probably outgrown a lot of really awful styles you picked up when you were younger but you may find yourself stuck in a few bad habits that are holding you back from being your fiercest. Take a look at the top ten bad fashion habits and if you find yourself guilty of some of them, then it is time to turn your style around.

1. Wearing one go-to fashion item all of the time
Denims can be a staple but be sure to dress it up to reflect your style
There are a few fashion items that falls in the “Looks-Like-You- Didn’t-Try” category and these include: flip-flops, sweatpants, tights and sometimes denim.  These are the items you reach for when you don’t feel like putting any effort into choosing an actual outfit.  Many women also turn to these things for comfort and convenience.  They’re the clothes you know you can fit and look relatively decent in public.  These pieces are OK for a quick run to the corner store but if these items make up more than 30% of your wardrobe, then you should better start making some changes.
Denim is the exception.  If you have several styles and washes that you can dress up and down, then you get a pass. Make sure that your closet contains a nice mix of all things fashion including dresses, skirts, and pants that aren’t denim.
2. Packing your purse like you’re going on vacation.
Less is more, even when it comes to packing your stuff.
Remember how your mom complained that your school bag was way too heavy and you were going to hurt yourself?  Well, You’re essentially doing the same thing to your shoulder.  Muscle spasms, back pain and headache are just a few of the health hazards that carrying a heavy purse daily can cause.  Adults should not carry more than 10% of their body weight in their bags.  The solution?  Buy a smaller purse that will force you to only carry what’s needed.
3. Playing matchmaker.
Be creative with colors
Matching your shoes to your purse is one thing, but buying the socks, hat and gloves to match is completely different.  When it comes to fashion, pieces should complement each other.  When they are all identical it comes off as cheesy and sends the message, “I didn’t know what the hell I was doing so I just got the whole set.”  Try choosing colors in the same color family at first if playing with different colors makes you uncomfortable.
4. Defining your” individuality” by following trends.
Recreate the trend to come up with a look that suits you
Your fav celebs don’t follow trends, they make them and they break all of the fashion rules. It’s one of the reasons we envy their savoir faire.  Just because Vogue is telling you that 70’s-style high-waisted flares are in doesn’t mean you need to set fire to all of your skinny jeans.  The thing about fashion is that you have to choose what works for you.  When you feel confident in what you’re wearing, the world is your runway.  With that in mind, there are some things that will always look ridiculous like platform sneakers and denim that is destroyed to the point of annihilation. Trends are something to be tried and then enhanced with your own personal touch.
5. Dressing inappropriately for the occasion.
If you are unsure what the dress code is, all you have to do is ask.
You don’t want to be the girl at the amusement park in stilettos.  We all have a style that defines us, and while I for one love a good pair of heels, I also realize that there is a time and place for them.  If you’re unfamiliar with the dress code of a certain venue or function, the general rule is to dress up.  For everything else, don’t be afraid to accommodate your look to the situation.
6. Wearing clothes that fit poorly.
your clothes should fit right
If your behind is playing peek-a-boo out of your low-rise jeans or your belt looks as if it’s hanging on to the loop by solely the grace of God, it may be time to find a better fit or at least a bigger size.  You may be in denial about your size, but the truth is wearing clothes that fit poorly only brings more attention to your size.  Be honest with yourself.  If you find yourself rolling around on the bed like your pants are on fire to button them, then they don’t fit; donate them.
Try doing the t-shirt test:
Lift your arms straight over your head.  If you can see your navel, then it’s too small.  Toss it.
The same rule applies to baggy clothes as well.  If the cuffs of your jeans drag across the ground and under your feet then they need to be tailored or you need a better fit.
7.  Making your pieces compete.
Keep it clean and trendy
When it comes to fashion, you’ve heard it before, but less really is more.  You want to choose one feature to highlight and one statement piece.  For example if you’re rocking a killer pair of flashy YSL pumps.  The last thing you want to pair it with is a busy blouse or a glam dress.  The rest of your outfit should be sexy, but subdued to allow the pumps to have the spotlight.
When it comes to highlighting a feature you want a man to at least be able to focus on what you’re saying at some point.  Letting a little cleavage show?  Don’t wear the shortest skirt you have with it and vice-versa.  Your look should subtly whisper that you’re sexy not scream for men to take a number to be served at the meat market.
8. Sticking to the same color palette.
explore colors
Wearing the same two or three colors definitely makes for easier shopping especially when you are a sucker for neutral colors. When you fall in love with a piece when shopping, if you can’t think of three things you already have you can wear with it, you shouldn’t buy it.  This doesn’t mean that you can’t find ways to add pops of color.  Try a bright red pump or some brightly colored tee’s to break up the predictability of your look.
9. Holding on to anything that you haven’t worn in a year.
Don't be a clothe hoarder
For those of us who love to shop, we can sometimes get caught up in quantity not quality.  It feels somewhat satisfying to peruse through your closet and see stacks of jeans and towers of shoe boxes knowing you don’t have to repeat an outfit for months.  But in actuality, how many of these pieces are you actually wearing?  Really take a look at your clothes,  if you haven’t worn any item in a year (that doesn’t hold sentimental value like a wedding dress) then it’s time to donate.  You’ll have a lot more room in your closet for all of your future shopping  if you do this.
10. Wearing your hair net, rollers or shower cap anywhere outside your home.
this is unattractive and downright tacky
The point of all of the items above is to protect and maintain your hairstyle for when you want to rock it in public. They most certainly shouldn’t be seen by the outside world. If you don’t feel like letting your hair down, a great solution is opting for a pretty little scarf which would only take but a minute to put on, no effort necessary.

Kris Humphries to sue Kim Kardashian for $10million

It's been alleged that Kris Humphries is planning to sue his wife of only 72 days, Kim Kardashian, for $10million over his role in the upcoming Kim and Kourtney take New York series.

According to Life&Style magazine: ‘He’s claiming his role on Kourtney & Kim Take New York is bigger than he was told, and that’s why he wants more money. Kris is also suing because he’s really worried about how badly he’s going to be portrayed on the series.’

US Weekly already portrayed the 26yr old badly, saying he was brutal with his comments towards Kim, insulted her, belittled her, called her stupid and talentless, and tried to control her by bringing her down in front of people.

She no no all this before she marry am? Or did the verbal abuse start after they got married?

This is the real reason they separated...the height difference oti


Celebs like Beyoncé Knowles, Kim kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, all have curvy bodies. The reason why they stand out on red carpet is not just because they wear gorgeous dresses, but because they wear the right dresses and accessories.
Here are 5 tips to flatter your curvy body:-
   -Love your body and be friendly with your body. If you see a friend wearing a pencil skirt, do not rush to the shops to buy one, just because you liked it on her. Be sure that style will suit your body shape.
  -Wear the right bra. So many women find it challenging to buy the right bra; Its either the size is too small, too loose, or too big. When choosing a bra, make sure the cup covers all your cleavage. The straps have to be tight too. If you are able to lift the strap with one finger, then it’s the right size. But if you are able to lift the strap with two or your five fingers then it’s not the right size for you. For bra fittings try Rigby & peller , bravissimo or Marks&Spencer
 -Do not wear baggy jeans or dresses that hide your curvy shape. Dress to show off your curves. Remember, that is your positive attribute. Always flaunt it.
 -Wear the right footwear. Platform shoes are trendy now and they have a way of elongating your legs giving them the right shapes. Pumps are very trendy and very comfortable too. Lastly always wear the right accessories. Accessories are the best way to stand out and make a positive fashion statement.

Unbelievable! Pictures from a gay marriage in lagos

I was shocked when I first saw this initially as you are right now. Considering our move to ban gay marriage and the way gays are generally regarded and treated in Nigeria, What's your take on gay relationships though, are Nigerians being too harsh?
