Hervé Léger

Every girl needs a Hervé Léger bandage dress--trust me ladies. it's worth it. U'll look 10 pounds skinnier and they'll last a lifetime.
Check out (net a porter's outlet site) they have a bunch for $500-$800 which isn't bad at all...

Special Offer from Continental Airlines:

It's very rare to see airfare to Tokyo under $1,000 from anywhere in the U.S. That's why this fare from Continental -- $328 each way from Newark -- is a no-brainer.

This fare is $300 OFF prices we've seen on other airlines. Travel on select dates through August. Final prices will include approximately $90 in taxes.

Hip-hop star Kanye West has just published a book of "Kanye-isms" with co-author J. Sakiya Sandifer. Entitled "Thank You And You're Welcome," the slim book contains 52-pages of West wisdom.

In a blog-baiting Reuters feature, West bragged about being a "proud non-reader," and said he hoped to avoid the "wordy and so self-absorbed" style of novels. His mini-book collects aphorisms and brief stories from the artist.

Here's a philosophical sample from the book: "When walking down the street, you can walk in one line perfectly without ever falling over. Now take that same city block, make it a foot wider and then put it a hundred stories high. You're going to be so focused on the fact that you don't have a banister, that you're more likely to fall because of it. When you're so focused on what you don't won't have!"

Sea Level is a really helpful site that collects 'links to the concrete coast' – in other words, anything that has to do with water activities. You'll find resources for boating, kayaking, rowing, swimming,
surfing, conditions, gear, and more. I love the sea, boats, and water (though I'll admit to being the swimmer)
Next on my list of things to do is swimming lessons.

French Open...comeback comes up short

Marat Safin angered the French Open crowd with his antics, made them ooh and aah with his shot-making, and finally coaxed them into warm applause when he walked off center court at Roland Garros for the last time of his tumultuous career.

The former No. 1 went through it all Wednesday, but he couldn’t pull off another win, losing to French wild-card entry Josselin Ouanna 7-6 (2), 7-6 (4), 4-6, 3-6, 10-8.

I heart Safin.

Richard Branson to buy Playboy?

Can Richard Branson be the new Hugh Hefner? Rumors are flying that the VIrgin Media tycoon is interested in the Playboy empire. The company has been allegedly shopped around for $300 million even though the market value is perceived to less than $100 million. Part of the reason for wide difference in figures is because the company wants to make sure that any deal will help Playboy's 83-year-old founder maintain his lavish lifestyle. Although one of Hugh Hefner's homes is on the market for nearly $28 million there is still main Playboy mansion and its tremendous upkeep to consider. He remains the editor of Playboy magazine and has said he wants to pass down his interest in the company to his teenage sons Marston and Cooper.

The Sorcerer's Apprentice

"A sorcerer leaves his workshop in the hands of his apprentice, who gets into trouble when the broomstick he's tasked to do his chores for him somehow develops a mind of its own..."

So I've been running around the country a bit....but in between the chaos I had a chance to "star" in the new Disney Flick (big budget). Well not exactly "star" but I was a "day player" meaning I had 2 entire lines!
The Movie comes out July 2010...and I'm crossing my fingers my two lines don't get cut!

but the saddest thing was that an extra was killed while they were filming a car chase scene uptown..yes, acting can be quite dangerous.

up and coming movie director...hopefully I'll have a chance to collab with him this weekend--hollywood--here i come :)
or not.
