Charlize Theron confuzed by geography

Actress CHARLIZE THERON was left red-faced after embarrassing herself by confusing two major world cities. The Monster star was discussing her voyage through Turkey toward the Istanbul International Film Festival with boyfriend actor Stuart Townsend, when she mistakenly named Budapest, the capital of Hungary, as one of her Turkish stops.

The 32-year-old South African went on to describe a visit at a Turkish bazaar, purchasing Turkish carpets and the attention lavished on her while in "Budapest" - when in fact she had visited Turkish capital Istanbul.

She told reporters, "We went to Turkey. When we got over there, we rented a car and we drove all the way to Budapest. By the time we got to Budapest it was like the Cannes Film Festival

How do you imagine yourself ten years from now?

Funny comment from a reader:

This is SO interesting. I'm an "old lady" by anyone's standards posting on this site. I was curious about this whole "emo" and "scene" thing as my niece has recently changed her look and style pretty drastically.

In some ways, in reading all these posts, I can only laugh... But the majority, I can totally relate to, appreciate, (and sigh!... remember) what it was like growing up, ESPECIALLY "coming of age" through the **`70's!** and partying even harder through the `80's (guess that tells you how really ancient I am..LOL)

...Anyway, we had the same diverse groups and identities, just with different names or interests than you do today. I'm sure it was all a little more "regionally" based back in my day too. We didn't have, or couldn't even fathom the the incredible technology available that you all have at your fingertips today. ("gasp"...Imagine to your horror, no cell phones, im, texting, ipods, video games, computers, internet etc..hell, even microwaves weren't really even around when i was in middle and high school)

...OK, all this "banter' is to prove my point. Styles, tastes, and interests change multiple,multiple, multiple times during your life. Enjoy it all while you're young, and hopefully have the sense to maintain your individuality and "morality", through out it all. Stay safe, show tolerance, and don't judge one another too harshly. Years from now when you're a wise, (but still cool!) aunt/parent etc. like me, you can look back at all the "stages" and decades of your life, and die of embarrassment, and laugh at yourself, on some of what you once thought was so cutting edge or cool!

Drew Barrymore and Justin Long: So Happy Together

As they arrived at the LAX airport earlier this week, one thing was abundantly clear - Justin Long and Drew Barrymore are head over heels in love with each other.

The “E.T.” cutie and her “Dodgeball” boyfriend were spotted arriving from their flight from New Orleans, dressed for chilly weather. Justin sported a black coat with some jeans and a cap, while Drew opted for a white jacket, dark pants and a purple scarf.

Ever since they met on the set of “He’s Just Not That Into You” this past September, Justin and Drew have been a constant blip on the paparazzi radar screen. And the fact that they’ve been scandal-free makes them all the more endearing.

Recently the “Accepted” actor gushed to press about how his new girlfriend makes him feel. Long said, “I’ve been very fortunate. I just feel very blessed and very happy!” And from the looks of Drew, the feeling is mutual.

Is A Sedu Flat Iron Any Good?

by Robin OBrien

If you buy a Sedu flat iron you'll be buying one of the most popular on the market. They're mid-priced, come with solid ceramic plates and with adjustable temperature control. But, are they a match for some of their competitors' recent models? The answer is that some are while others aren't.

Let's get one thing straight (pardon the pun); A Sedu is one of the best flat irons available. They've received many hairstyling awards and many professionals use them. However, they aren't the only hair straightener that has received hair awards and is loved by professional stylers. And, many brands newer models now come with features that make straightening hair easier and make hair stay straighter for longer.

A Sedu is often compared to a CHI flat iron with many preferring one or other for the results they get. However, with the new range of CHI flat irons, Sedu may find its market share slipping. Let's take a look at each model available and see how it rates.

The Sedu Ionic Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron (1") has been on the market for some time and remains a big seller. It has solid ceramic plates that are coated with tourmaline crystal - tourmaline emits 6 times more negative ion that does ceramic (negative ions seal the ctticle and retain the hair's moisture causing less heat damage and make hair straighter for longer). It's also light, weighing only 0.9 lbs. and is a low wattage appliance, using only 72 watts, so it's cheaper to run. It now retails for around $75, so its price is pretty competitive for a good quality styling tool.

There is also a 1 1/2" plate version, which features exactly the same features but retails for a higher price of around $100.

Comparing both of these models with the original CHI flat iron we find that the Sedu models are cheaper, which is a real plus point. The CHIs are also heavier although they do heat up quicker, come with longer power chords and use only 35 watts. However, what really makes the Sedu the better iron is that it features variable heat control, whereas the CHI is fixed at 385F. If you're thinking of buying either of the two tools, you should definitely choose the Sedu.

The Sedu Revolution Nano Tourmaline Hair Styler is new. It comes with 1" plates, weighs only 0.65lbs, adjustable temperature control between 180F - 450F (120C - 230C), and fast heat up time. It also comes with something called a Freestyle Guiding System that prevents hair from slipping out at the end of the tool's plates. The plates also have a curved edge that helps prevent snagging and allows hair to be curled as well as straightened. Its price tag is around $130 and it's a very good hair styler.

But it looks rather old fashioned when compared to the new CHI Nano Ceramic Digital 1" flat iron. This tool uses something called Nano Silver Technology. This eliminates bacteria on the tool, creating a germ-free environment every time you use it - you're going to see this featured more and more on newer flat irons; the Corioliss also uses this technology. Just like its competitor the plates have curved edges. It is more expensive, retailing for around $140.

The CHI Nano Ceramic is the best flat iron of the two and I would recommend you spend the extra on buying it.

If you want to spend around $70 -$80, the Sedu flat iron is a great tool for the price, but if you really want the best, then opt for the CHI Nano flat iron.

The 35-year-old former "Baywatch" babe was snapped backstage at "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Monday, sporting a bad blonde dye job, black liquid eyeliner and a Holly Hobbie/dominatrix dress from Laura Ashley's Elvira line.

Throw on a pair of Lucite heels and she could be Shauna Sand's classier, long lost sister. While on Sunday, Electra was photographed in Chile (inset)-- looking like a Druid high priestess.

Hopefully, her best gal pal, Joan Jett, isn't behind Carm's new disposition.

Emo Fashion Advice


by cakecake

If you truly want to change yourself and become emo, your going to have to undergo many stages, although you'll need patience.

Step 1.

Grow out your hair long enough to the point where the side bangs go past your chin, because that frames your face and makes your face look more slender, you can have the rest of your hair that length.

Step 2.

There are two options when it comes to hair straightening....

Option 1:

Buy a decent hair straightener, not some cheap one that you'll throw away in 3 months... One that will last you good as a buddy, seeing how you have curly hair, if you do have a decent hair straightener I suggest you put it on a high temperature, not too high or within months you'll get noticeable amounts of frizzy ugly nappy split end like hair. Also don't grab a chunk load of hair and straighten it... It will also result in nappy hair... If you have have curly hair, do each and every layer of hair in small smallllll portions. Get hair clips and get your top layers and clip them to your head, and slowly straighten the bottom layers little by little then move to the middle and then the top... To get a more straight look to your hair, brush a bristle brush (skinny brush) through a portion of hair your going to straighten and follow the brush. Also USE CONDITIONER if you dont or atleast hair care repair like hot shower oils or anti frizz from the drugstore, because your hair will get frizzy whether you like it or not no matter what kind of hair straightner you use.

Option 2:

Get it chemically straightened... Wait until your hair grows past your chin, and find a decent trustworthy salon and ask about chemical hair straightening. It usually costs around 150$-200$ depends.... and takes around 2-3hours. When you go to the salon get short layers at the top of the crown of your head that are the size of your finger and make the choppy layers, get aloootttt of layers! and get a few layers on your side bangs not to much to make them look too thin, they have to be longgg!(your side bangs need to frame your face). For your bangs I suggest you get a side swept choppy look that will hide your eyebrows somewhat (like a skater bangs but with more layers more unique) or fully grow out your bangs to your chin and cut it to the point to where you can pin your bangs to the side.

Also if you don't think your hair color doesn't suit your scene style, get it died a natural color range like ( black, brown, blonde) if you want blonde color then to pull it off your going to need a small face/small chin/slender face. Brown and black are easier to pull off and match the colors of your eyebrows. DONT GET THOSE HIGHLIGHTS EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT like (blue, red, etc) to pull that off once again your going to have a slender face, with good features, if not then youll look like a poser. Try not to overexagerrate scene/emo with those vivid colors try to stay a natural scene color.

Step 3.

If you want to poof up your hair like all the other scenesters, your going to have to tease it.
Your going to need LAYERS ( alot of layers on your scene hair or youll just look like a big mass of hair even though some scenesters ignore my warning and still look like they have a big head)


1. your hair has to be clean and straightened.
2. go to youtube and look up "how i tease my hair" that will give you a tutorial..

Step 4.

Okay your going to need eyelash extensions... this is going to complicated at first because it took me forever to master it.
There are two different kids of eyelash extensions your can get.

The full eyelash products the full ring of eyelashes for one eye) or individual eyelashes (tiny seperate ones). You are going to have to find a tutorial to how to stick on that cause for me its hard to explain... Don't worry if you do buy one on a drugstore will cost 3-5$ and will come with directions and glue and additional info.

Step 5.

CUT YOUR EYEBROWS! GET THEM PLUCKED! not to the point to where you completely look demonic... I don't think you'll look good with drawing them on with a eyeliner pencil. Just a natural slender look, not too skinny. So just look up some photos of some popular scene guys and look for one who has a natural eyebrow shape, something that will match your the shape of your upper eyelid and will complete all your facial features.

Step 6.

Eyeliner and Makeup.
Eyeliner... DONT OVEREXAGERRATE IT AND LOOK LIKE A RACCOON. or a hamburgler. At first since your probably a beginner at makeup try the sides of your eyelids if your eyes are a decent amount far apart and the ends of your eyelids just on the outer sides. Also get a volumizing mascara to bring out your eyes and eyeliner, try exaggerating the edges of your lashes so bring them out, get a dark shade for mascara. YOU NEEEEDDD MASCARA! if you want a paler facade i suggest you buy the most palest decent concealer you can find in a drugstore. If you want to hide acne, then I suggest you get a powder compact or a concealer that matches your skin tone or is a tad bit more brighter. For eye shadow look for tutorials on youtube...

Step 7.

Shave any evidence of chin hair, facial hair SHAVE ITTT... It makes your skin look more clear. Shave especially if you have really dark dark dark hair as mustache hair.

step 8.

Now I know Im being a real blunt.
If your really want this ideal image.
Lose weight.
If your slender and have a high metabolism, thats great your set!
You notice that these scene guys are skinny.
Dont go bulimic. Don't get too deep into turning yourself into something your not. Also I dont want you to hurt your body severely which bulimia can lead too same with anorexia. Just exercise and take in your daily amount of food. Scene guys are usually frail looking as in they are not muscular they don't have abs, they look great in fit teeshirts if they are frail looking, they have no muscles but look like a slender girl, it doesn't show the muscle outlines because they have none and they like the ideal scene make sure you lose belly fat and on your sides, that is a turn off. Make sure your legs are slender, no matter how short/tall you may be if you have slender legs your good to go for skinny jeans.

Step 9.

Cloth shopping
BIGG THING, usually your supposed to find your own unique fashion but i guess you have no sense whatsoever...
Sorry for being blunt but its true.

Okay what your going to have to shop for are usually band tees or vintage abstract tees. Don't get the mainstream ones unless you have a nice physique then its acceptable if not you will be criticized.... get bomber jackets ( fur plaid hoodies and are sometimes snug at the waist) if you have slender legs this is hella easy to pull off.
Get studded/vintage belts.
For shoes i suggest you get pumas/ airforce/ the hightop vans/ reebook/ cowboy/vintage boots(if you have a feminine slender body and face) usually sporty vintage/retro scene shoes are acceptable if you wear converses or very common van shoes that you cant seem to pull off you will be accounted as a poser...

Shop at
American Apparal
Some ebay vintage myspace shops
You can buy them online if you don't have one of them near you.
Look at what some of the vintage scene kids wear and update your fashion knowledge from there....

I hope I have overall shaped your appearance of a scene/emo kid.... :)

Lindsay Lohan sets record, kisses 3 men a day!

Lindsay Lohan has become a complete freak out. She spent a wild weekend as she reached Capri. The ‘Life-Size’ actress’s decline is for sure ever since she visited rehab thrice in 2007. But, it seems, she is in no mood to learn from her past and behave decently as she continued with her ways of no restraint, no self-respect and a moral-less being.

The 21-year-old has shocked me with her latest gestures as she tried to get cozy with not one, but, three men in 24-hour spell during a visit to Capri! She attended Capri Film Festival with ‘Heroes’ star and friend Hayden Panettiere and was honored for her contribution to Hollywood.

It all started with waiter Alessandro Di Nunzio, whom Lohan met as she reached Capri. The duo exchanged their phone numbers at a film show. However, she did not find him great and decided on another guy Di Nunzio and ended up in lip locking with him. Both, then dined together and got little intimate on hotel’s sofa.

That was not enough to satiate Lohan as later on, dressed up in skimpy skirt she went on and had a session with another older Italian hunk, Eduardo Costa.

The last and fortunate one to get close and kissed by Lohan was actor Dario Faiella, the son of Italian music legend Peppino Di Capri. Well, I hope Lohan is now contended with kisses she shared with Italian men but all I wish to know is that which one was most passionate for her.
