Pilates 100s

To firm up the muscles beneath your love handles — known as the external obliques — try the Pilates "100s." This exercise was found to challenge more overall muscle in one shot (specifically, the muscles spanning the waist) than traditional crunches. To do the 100s, sit on a mat and make a V with your body (your butt forms the bottom of the V). Reach your hands past your knees, arms parallel to the floor. Pump your arms up and down 100 times, inhaling and exhaling every five counts. via

Wacky Beauty Tips That Work

Hmmm... I'm going to try these...

2) Scent Strands with Perfume
Spray a light shot of fragrance into your brush's bristles. Run it through strands from roots to ends and your hair will smell amazing throughout the day.

3) Cure Calluses with Vaseline
Slather on the petroleum jelly, and put on socks before bed to dissolve tough calluses overnight.

12) Boost Body Lotion with Baby Oil
If you're craving shiny legs that aren't greasy, blend a drop of baby oil into your normal body lotion for extra luster.

15) Freeze Your Eyeliner
If the tip of your eyeliner pencil crumbles and smears on your lids, store the liner in the freezer for 15 minutes before use so the tip is firm and goes across your skin smoothly.

16) Use Toothpaste on a Zit
Use just a pea-size amount. Let sit for 15 minutes to absorb the oil so the pimple won't get more clogged, then wash off.

18) Use Soap Without Water
You know those fancy bars that are actually too pretty to use? Toss them in your underwear or tee-shirt drawers to make your skin smell delicious.

21) Lubricate Your Lashes
An easy way to draw attention to your eyes without putting on a pile of makeup is to comb petroleum jelly lightly through the tips of eyelashes to get a sexy, subtle sparkle.

26) Shave with Conditioner
Ran out of shaving cream? Do double duty by coating your stems with a thick hair conditioner. It softens the hair so it's easier to shave off and makes legs feel amazingly silky.

27) Amp Shine with Vinegar
Mix one part vinegar with four parts carbonated water, and soak dry hair. Leave on for 15 minutes before you shampoo to lock in shine and combat dullness.

28) Exfoliate Your Pits
If your underarms start to look dry and flaky, an easy trick is to exfoliate them with a gentle face scrub to keep that skin pretty when going sleeveless.

29) Customize Your Body Lotion
Instead of shelling out for an expensive perfumed body product, you can make your own by pouring a few drops of fragrance into any scent-free lotion. Rub it on — the scent will last for hours.

Cultural Differences?

I'm not sure if this can be classified as a cultural difference or it's just a Japanese thing. I bet 99% of anyone who come across this sign won't see THAT THING as an injured arm!

This Product Just Will Never Have My Money.

"Don't Mistake Activity for Achievement"

The above quote by Hall of Fame basketball player/coach John Wooden highlights the difference between work and honest to goodness getting stuff done: just because you're busy doesn't mean you're accomplishing anything.

Which Social Network Goes With Your Kind of Crazy?

erm...what's Tweetstalk?


Be Stupid

The Diesel ‘Be Stupid’ campaign has been banned in England. Considering this advert won first prize at the French advertising festival in Cannes...

The ASA has received a number of complaints from parents, shocked to see the naked back of a young girl (we don’t even see her chest)… The campaign has therefore been removed; on the grounds it is indecent and antisocial. With English girls’ habit of wearing the skimpiest of outfits during the coldest months, people are wondering where this hypocrisy is coming from...via

50 All-Time Favorite New Uses for Old Things

Repurpose an old frame for a vanity tray that’s pretty as a picture. Place a piece of colored paper or fabric inside as a finishing touch.

Shower-curtain hooks provide sturdy storage for heavier items, like purses.

A giveaway shower cap becomes the perfect wrapper for shoes when traveling, preventing them from dirtying clothes packed in your suitcase.

Forget unruly plastic bags that seemingly regenerate under your sink. An empty tissue box keeps them neatly corralled and ready for use.

No more worries of camisoles and sundresses slipping off hangers when you wrap the ends with rubber bands.
