WTF

Since when that sterling silver costs more than diamond !!! Above Gucci silver bracelet $1265; below Tiffany & Co. diamond bracelet $875.

Inspiration or Imitation ??

Do the sound and the video of Nicole Scherzinger's "Whatever U Like" and Beyonce's "Ring The Alarm" look very similar ?



My Wish List...

"6-pack" is always on my number 1 wish list but I still don't have one. Here is another tips from Men Health to get one in 5-minutes. OK, I'll try to believe them...

Plank
Assume a press-up position, but place your forearms on the floor. Brace your abs as if you were about to be punched in the gut, and hold for 30 seconds.

Side plank
Lie on your left side, propping your body up on your left elbow and forearm. Raise your hips until your body forms a straight line from shoulders to ankles. Brace your abs for 30 seconds, then repeat on your right.

Swiss-ball crunch
Lie with your hips and lower and upper back resting on a Swiss ball. Put your fingers behind your ears and crunch your chest towards your hips. Lower to the start and knock out 15 reps.

Reverse crunch
Lie on your back, knees slightly bent. Raise your knees to your chest by lifting your hips up and in. Lower your legs and repeat for 15 reps.

Cable woodchopper
Turn your right side towards a cable station and grab the rope handle of a high pulley with both hands. Pull it down and across the front of your body until your hands are outside your left knee. Reverse the movement, do 15 reps, then turn the other way for another 15.

Reverse cable woodchopper
Now use a low pulley cable. Bend and grab the rope with both hands, arms almost straight and just outside your right knee. Pull the rope up and across your body until your hands are in line with your left ear. Reverse the movement and complete 15 reps on each side.

Limited Crystal

Swarovski has unveiled a limited edition line of jewellery, created by the likes of Christopher Kane and Stephen Webster, in aid of Swarovski Fashion Rocks for The Princes Trust 2007. "As soon as I became aware of the Swarovski crystal mesh I wanted to use it. Swarovski Fashion Rocks was the perfect opportunity as the gradient of colour looks like the graphic equalizer on my stereo, with lights going from dark to light in a purple and lilac UV colour." says Kane of his Purple Rock necklace and pendant set (above). The full collection will be available to buy in Swarovski stores and at swarovski.com from October 18.

Cover Boy

Michael Jackson, a.k.a. "The king of the POP", celebrates the 25th anniversary of his album "Thriller" (the most sold to the world with 104 million copies) with a photographic service realized from Bruce Weber for L' Uomo Vogue. To be honest, I really do miss his music...

Put Your Strap On

Are you ready for Folsom Street Fair this weekend ? I'm not too excited because it's not really my scene and I've been extremely busy with other things. I'm more excited to see one of my friends who is coming back from Bangkok with his new face. Above is the promo poster from the event that creates quite a stir because it resembles "The Last Supper" of Leonardo Da Vinci. In the meantime, this Slog and Popped Culture show other parodies of the last Supper which didn't seem like a big deal. Talking about double standard...

Bold floral and graphic prints are big hits on Milan runway.

No, I'm not a member of PeTA nor turning "straight"... I just think Dita Von Teese looks gorgeous in this ads.

Quote of the Day

" In Iran, we don’t have homosexuals like in your country.
We don’t have that in our country.
In Iran, We do not have this phenomenon.
I do not know who has told you that we have it. "

World Premiere: Rihanna - "Hate That I Love You"



" And I hate how much I love you boy (yeah)
I can’t stand how much I need you (I need you)
And I hate how much I love you boy (ooh)
But I just can’t let you go
And I hate that I love you so..

Sad and it’s not fair how you take advantage of the fact that I
Love you beyond the reason why
And it just ain’t right

One of these days maybe your magic won’t affect me
And your kiss won’t make me weak
But no one in this world knows me the way you know me
So you’ll probably always have a spell on me.. "
