It was the turn of the Critics' Week, the oldest parallel sections of the
Cannes festival to present a selection of films on Monday.
This 54th edition should be based on "two highlights," according to Charles
Tesson, General Delegate of the International Critics' Week. Anarchists Elijah
Wajeman with Adèle Exarchopoulos and Tahar Rahim, will open May 14 A film that
"demonstrates the commitment of youth and his rebellion," according to Charles
Tesson who the director of Aliyah "brings us back to the time of the anarchists,
the children of the Commune, while offering a contemporary movie" .
The first feature film by Louis Garrel The other event, it will be presenting
a special screening of the first feature film by Louis Garrel, The Two Friends.
A film that will need to watch for the "freedom of tone between lightness and
gravity," but also a "fun and tasty treat, irradiated by the complicity of the
trio of actors," Louis Garrel, Vincent Macaigne and Golshifteh Farahani. Note
that Louis Garrel is the son of director Philippe Garrel which itself will open
the Fortnight, the other parallel section of the Cannes Film Festival
Difficult to speak of the seven films in competition (most of the first
films), except that Krisha advertised as "an exciting film proposal and
swollen," another is carried out by a former winner of the Discovery Sony
CineAlta short film, the American-Italian Jonas Carpignano. And that neither
heaven nor earth, on the day of French soldiers in Afghanistan, "led by Jeremie
Renier and worn by the young guard of French cinema: Kevin Aza?s, Swann Arlaud
and Finnegan Oldfield".
Movie promises As for the ten short films in competition, they are announced
by Charles Tesson as "ten amazing movie promises by their shades of diversity."
The closing session will be provided by "a comedy that has seized us by the
accuracy of his gaze," La Vie en general, the first film by French director
Mathieu Vadepied, also discovered at the Critics' Week with a short film. This
would be "a mischievous tale in the suburbs with two stunning kids [who] are
going to bring a breath of freshness and tenderness." Verdict Thursday, May
The former academic Alex Garza daily strengthens its versatility in the
Mexican entertainment and this can be demonstrated in the premiere of the
telenovela UEPA where he will play a costume designer with dreams of becoming a
singer. The melodrama of Azteca opens on April 27 o'clock in 17:00 and also
expressed his excitement to driving this publishing house to start this project.
Alex Garza will "Tita", the costume designer ballerinas "Pink", a group of
girls with the impetus to make their way in life, they perform very innovative
choreography as part of the show they put on and "Tita" will also be right Betty
Monroe, who is the owner of the bar, Alex will get into the skin of a "snappy"
woman with the desire to be a singer, matching her passion and her character,
since both love music.
"Betty Monroe is my boss in the novel, she will tell me all your sorrows as
well as other partners, is a character who tries to solve problems and help, is
a species as an accomplice, plus 'Tita' is something that attracts me lot
because we both like to sing and she has dreams of being a great singer and that
people know, but have stage fright. Then it is fun to watch as locks, but also
becomes desperate because he can not get over it and is partly what I really
love it. "
The protagonists of melodrama are Erick Chapa and Gloria Stalina, both with
his first feature opportunity, Alex explains that the entire cast is very well
made and a great friendship among all formed, she hopes that the public is
engaged with the story as it is a adaptation of "like in the movies" melodrama
Azteca introduced 15 years ago.
During the course of the plot the public will see as "Tita" is specifying
their dreams. Alex in reality was in a women's group called G6 with whom he
recorded two albums and is now away a little of the subject giving priority to
his career in acting and driving, yet has a rock band which still venting their
?"You will see lots of music girls dancing and my singing, why not say so?
What the public is pending, I will cover that part which I also love, so 'UEPA'
I love because it allows me to do all things I love. " Alex is writing songs
with his rock band called Supernova, but sees it more as a hobby. He is very
active in his Sunday program Azteca called "Connection" and also in a program
A child growing up in an atmosphere of violence and without moral could
repeat the behavior in adulthood. But since childhood are taught values ??such
as solidarity, empathy and love for neighbor, has great potential for it to
become a person who respects others and be happy.
With this vision in mind was taken to the cinema "The Incredible Kid History
Stone" child tape animated Stingray independent production that opens on April
17 in tapatías rooms.
"It's a film that is much needed for the situation that is facing the
country. There are a lot of films of denunciation, but also need to flip to see
the kids and talk to them as core values, "said its director, Miguel Angel
Through a story of adventure, in which fantastic and fun with others
representing the Huichol culture characters are mixed, the story based on a
story by Nadia Gonzalez recounts the experiences of "Marina" (voiced by Melissa
Gideon Pérez) and his three cousins ??"Tato" (voice of Angel Guillermo Garcia
Solis), "Tito" (Emilio Rafael Trevino) and "Tete" (Melisa Gutiérrez Vianney
Alvarado), who live in a valley of the Huasteca Tamaulipeca, which reaches a
fair where a Child Stone, who decide to help to re-being of flesh and bone is
presented. To achieve this, they travel to the Land of the Senses and request
support its inhabitants: Ears, Hands, Eyes, Mouths and Noses.
Uriegas said the director Jaime Romadía also met Nadia and after that came
the idea to make a film, being the author herself who made the film script. "Try
to learn to be generous and secondly that nobody can teach you to love life more
Each episode is music by original songs composed by Mexican singer Julieta
Venegas, in which she "managed to capture perfect the essence of what was
meant," said Uriegas. He adds that there is a part that is inspired by the
philosophy of life of the Huichol to discover the "flame of life".
The director explained that decided that the film would be encouraged because
they felt it was the right way to reach young children. "Without being
pretentious wanted to make a tribute to Mexican art in all its edges, through a
concrete visual proposal."
Warning: spoiler. The villain was not the one that we thought. Three months
after its release on July 1, the latest trailer for the fifth installment of the
Terminator, subtitled "Genisys" reverses the course of history. If the above
video suggested that the villain was played by Lee Byung-Hun, it reveals that in
reality it is ... John Connor (played by Jason Clarke)! The son of Sarah Connor,
the leader of the revolt against the machines in person.
The name of Emilia Clarke to interpret Sarah Connor had a surprise. Like the
return of T-800, aka Arnold Schwarzenegger, former governor of California, 67
years old ... One thing is certain, the director Alan Taylor has a sense of
At first it seems a fluke: a child of two years manipulates the buttons on an
advanced sound system. However, little is controlling the music itself, which is
known for its strong bass. It is DJ AJ, the youngest disc jockey in South
In his presentation at a mall, a crowd around it while moving his head to the
beat of the music, and big headphones will roll. Adults take their phones to
record while children simply look.
Oratilwe Hlongwane is still learning to speak, but I can pick and play music
on a laptop and has become a viral phenomenon in South African social networks.
His mother, Refiloe Marumo says all due to the parent's decision to buy an
iPad when his son was born. Glen Hlongwane planned to download educational
applications to accelerate your child's education. Hlongwane, who teaches
gymnastics and aspiring DJ also downloaded an app for that activity to himself.
When DJ AJ was one, he learned how to operate the device. But dissatisfied
with number recognition games, began testing the application DJ dad.
Parents were of a piece when the child still in diapers, professional teams
could repeat what he had learned in implementing and played with musical
effects. A video of his adventures went viral and now DJ AJ has nearly 25,000
followers on Facebook.
The newfound fame has represented special presentations and sponsorship deals
that many can only dream DJ older.
But celebrity has also drawn criticism because some accuse their parents of
abuse and capitalize on early child's ability.
"I will not exploit my son," his father said. DJ AJ's parents said they would
no longer be in clubs or parties.
Hlongwane and Marumo say not force your child to be a DJ when he grows up,
but say their affinity for electronic equipment will probably be what you decide
your future. Hlongwane said: "I can see a future Bill Gates here."
Fame and fortune are not all that important in Garth Brooks' life, because
what really matters to him is family.
In 2000, the country star decided to leave behind his music career to focus
on raising his daughters, who he shares with first wife, Sandy Mahl. Fourteen
years later, he is making a comeback with his world tour and ninth studio album,
Man Against Machine, but does he regret leaving showbiz in the first place?
"People said, 'How could you walk away from music?'" he told People magazine.
"But being a dad — there's nothing that can touch that."
Speaking about what he enjoyed most about his children, he gushed, "They're
such a joy... children bring all kinds of unexpected things in your life."
The "Friends in Low Places" hit maker also admitted that fatherhood has
brought him both joy and heartache.
Speaking of children, he said, they "are the greatest joy and the greatest
heartache you'll ever have. The saying is, as long as your babies are healthy,
everything else you can deal with. If they have D's, if they flunk, you deal
with it. You can introduce them to the lord, teach them manners, teach them to
believe in themselves, but the truth is, they're going to be who they're going
And just because his girls are all grown up and have graduated from high
school does not mean that the proud papa has stopped worrying about them. In
fact, he worries even more.
"I am in the period now where I think I pray more than I ever have in my
life," he tells the magazine. "Because for some reason when they were under my
roof, I felt like I might have had some control, you know?"
He just can't seem to bring himself to fully admit he lied about being in a
chopper that came under fire and was shot down when he was embedded in Iraq.
Instead, he is wondering (aloud) if he might have had a brain tumor that made
him get confused or forget the fact that he wasn't shot down in an aircraft in a
I’m serious. You can't make something this ridiculous up.
Even when he did (kinda) come clean before, saying, "I would not have chosen
to make this mistake. I don't know what screwed up in my mind that caused me to
conflate one aircraft with another," he seemed to be alluding to the fact that
it was someone (or something) else's fault.
In a recent Vanity Fair article, an unnamed source inside the news
organization said, "[Williams said], 'Did something happen to [my] head? Maybe I
had a brain tumor, or something in my head?'" The source said, "We got the best
[apology] we could get."
From where I sit, this isn't an apology at all. It's a really terrible excuse
that diminishes those who have been afflicted with brain tumors, turning them
into some strange breed of fabricators and inventors of stories, on top of the
fact that Williams still refuses to take full responsibility for the lies he
The Vanity Fair article chronicles how difficult it was to get Williams into
the war zone to begin with, and then tells about how he seemed "shell-shocked"
when he returned.
Another source told the magazine, in regard to getting him to apologize, "He
was having a tough enough time coming to grips with the idea that he had gotten
it wrong in the first place, slash misrepresented it, slash lied. He wasn't
anywhere in the ballpark of being helpful about what happened 12 years ago."
This is just a veiled attempt to minimize the fact that what he did was a
gross violation of the public's trust. I appreciate this source trying to lessen
the blow of what they feel Williams was going through or provide a rational
reason for what Williams did, but at the end of the day, he made up stories,
created facts out of thin air and ultimately violated the trust journalists have
been working very hard to earn. And the fact that he refused to come out and own
up to what he did is, to me, further proof that Brian Williams should never be
trusted to report the news to the American public ever again.
And for him to use the seriously lame excuse of a tumor in his brain is
The lengths we'll go to look our best are pretty astounding, amiright ladies?
There have been plenty of questionable beauty products I've tried over the years
that made my sanity seem just as questionable. That being said, some of the
weirdest products turn out to be amazingly effective. (A beauty product that
actually does what it's supposed to? Never heard of it.)
Check out these seven don't-knock-till-you-try beauty products and you know,
get ready to have your mind blown:
1. Fresh Breasts Cream With the hot weather just around the corner, I felt
the need to mention this product first. Fresh Breasts has been scientifically
created to keep your girls dry and unchafed. It's a soothing lotion that
quick-dries into a clump-free powder to keep swoobs (sweaty boobs) at bay. For
reals. (freshbody.com, $12)
2. Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner The name says it all: This gel
goes on thin and as it dries turns into a white powder, essentially sucking the
gunk out of your pores. It's the perfect partner in crime for tackling those
pesky blackheads. (Sephora, $45)
3. Brow Buddy OK, so it kinda sorta looks like the protractor you popped your
ex's car tires with in high school, but word is Brow Buddy is the cheese to your
macaroni. It makes shaping your brows uber-fast and simple, giving you perfectly
symmetrical brows every time. (bdb, $20)
4. Clip Tips Your besties will probably tease you for buying these wet
manicure protectors... you know, until they eff up their freshly-painted nails
in a matter of seconds and ask where you got them. (Amazon, $4)
5. Smashbox O-Gloss Intuitive Lip Gloss his gloss is like a mood ring for
your lips: It goes on clear, then based on its "intuition," colors your lips in
the shade of pink that suits you best. For women who struggle to find a shade of
gloss that's just right... well, you're welcome. (Smashbox, $24)
6. Milky Foot Exfoliating Foot Pads I haven't tried this personally but a few
of my friends have and couldn't believe how soft their feet were. We put our
feet through a lot, and many of us don't give them the attention they deserve.
These exfoliating foot pads will totally make up for all the neglect. Just wear
the acid-infused socks for an hour, and a few days later your dry skin peels
away to reveal baby-soft feet. But make sure when it comes time to literally rip
your skin off, you haven't eaten recently. Your skin comes off in one piece like
a sock. Only gross. (Biorevive, $15)
7. Hask Placenta Leave-In Conditioner Yep, placenta. This no-rinse formula
works on all hair types to bring back texture, body and shine to your hair.
Justin Timberlake was during an acceptance speech not hold back his tears.
The 'Sexy Back' singer, who in a few weeks, his first child with wife Jessica
Biel was expected in the 'excellent iHeartRadio' Awards in Los Angeles with the
Innovator Award. When he came on stage to pick him up, he thanked touching at
the actress: "There is no innovation without creation and therefore I would like
to thank my best friend, my favorite Associate - my wife Jessica, who is at home
watching Honey, I. can not wait to see our previous best creation. " At these
words the feelings went through with the musician and he could not hold back his
Despite the many emotions of the 34-year-old concluded his speech off with a
laugh. He said: "Do not worry, Daddy comes home now to finally learn how to
change diapers and full up." On his wife's pregnancy had Timeberlake otherwise
reluctant responding. In January, he confirmed at all to be father by posted a
picture of the vast baby ball Biel on Instagram. The exact date of birth and sex
of the child are not known.
If Winter the lamb could talk, he would probably say, "It's my party, and
I'll bounce if I want to!" This little guy looks like he's just discovered
jumping on the bed, and now that he knows it's the best thing ever, he has no
intention of stopping.
Winter the lamb belongs to Shannen Hussein, who's also put adorable little
clips of him all over Vine, in case this video makes you want to see a whole lot
more of him (which it probably will). In this video, he just can't help jumping
all over his mistress's bed, and her calling him off only seems to get him more
amped up. At one point he even gets on his knees, which makes him look like he's
asking Shannen to join him. He's all, "You know you want to jump on here. I
can't be the only one having all the fun." Take a look at his adorably
He even makes like he's getting off but then hops right back on just to fake
Shannen out! Lambs are such cards. If Winter ever has a slumber party, I'm
definitely RSVPing "yes."
Neatly stacked fabrics in every color sit on a rack above a long row of
hanging dresses and jackets. Piles of fashion magazines cover the coffee table
and a handmade wedding dress designed for a friend stands as the piece de
resistance in the front window. It’s a representation of the work Jennifer Usher
does and her type of design aesthetic. Her shop is a den of creativity literally
busting at the seams with projects.
A flair for sewing has been a common thread in Usher’s life, and her
infectious passion for it has taken her on adventures far and wide, culminating
in a dream realized.
The 44-year-old owner of Make It Sew, on Center Street has a lifelong love of
design and sewing, ranging from hemming gowns and replacing jacket linings to
designing custom wedding gowns and an Alexander McQueen knock-off.
As customers floated in and out of the shop, Usher talked about her path,
which has sort of zigzagged from Rutland to various places and back again, and
what led her to open a business in downtown Rutland, and what it takes to make
that business thrive.
She’s done all sorts of work throughout her life, all the while operating a
mini sewing business on the side, and three and a half years ago on her 41st
birthday she opened the doors of “Make It Sew.”
“This was the biggest birthday present to myself ever,” she said. “It took me
a long time to decide that having my own business was what I really wanted.
Because it’s scary, it’s a big risk to say I’m going to do it on my own now.”
Her mother’s big clunky Singer sewing machine was her introduction to sewing
around age 7, a somewhat complicated machine that fascinated her. In addition to
her mom, both of her grandmothers were creative sewers and knitters, and that
outlet became a natural part of self-expression for Usher, growing up with a
family who created things by hand.
“It didn’t occur to me until I was 27 or 28 that I could do it for a living,”
she said. She worked part-time sewing for a couple smaller businesses, and for a
while rented a small studio space above where the Yellow Deli is now, doing
A friend had opened a similar sewing business in Massachusetts to what “Make
it Sew” is today, and in 2006 Usher moved down there to work with her, where she
developed her skills as a custom dressmaker. And later, a company in Ireland
that made hand-woven woolen fabric needed a sewer, and Usher spent three months
in Ireland learning how to create garments out of heavyweight wool.
“When I got back from that, I was like, ‘OK now what do I do,’” she recalled.
Growing up in Tinmouth, she had been around horses her whole life. She
decided to take work in a horse stable in Clarendon for a couple years, still
doing sewing projects in her basement on the side.
“I had a little business card I would hand out, I did alterations, that kind
of thing,” she said. “It worked but there was never going to be a big clientele
attached to that.”
When a part-time job at Castleton’s theater costume department came up, it
let her really focus her energy on being creative. The main costume designer
left for a semester and Usher was asked to fill in. That year she designed
“Jesus Christ Superstar” in steampunk, and wheels were set in motion.
“I was really proud of that,” she said. “It was so much hard work, and so
rewarding and I remember thinking I’m finally doing what I’m supposed to do.”
On her 40th birthday she decided to give herself a year to open a business.
“It took me a solid year but I did it, I opened up the shop a year later” she
Alexander McQueen is one of her favorite designers, and a huge, heavy book
with a holographic cover that highlights every piece McQueen ever did lives in
“I don’t think I really had any influences in the outer world until later
on,” she said. “I started reading Vogue and looking at what some of the
designers were doing, becoming more aware of fashion.”
“He’s the biggest creative inspiration of my life, pretty much. Look at
that,” she says opening to a page with a model wearing an endless white dress
covered in intricate tiers of layered ruffles.
“That represents hundreds of hours of work. These ruffles would be all cut by
hand and then stitched together. There are other designers that I like but for
some reason he just struck my imagination in a way that no other designer ever
has,” she said.
She explains the precision of McQueen’s cut and fit, and it’s the details in
tailoring that get her excited about the work she does.
“I’ve been looking my whole life for what I’m supposed to be when I grow up
kind of thing, and nothing ever really felt like it was the thing that was going
to be the thing. Some people seem to be able to figure it out from the get-go
and they have this wonderful long career, but I never could quite figure out
where my path was until now. So it’s great to be finally figuring it out, as
best as I can, because there are always days when I think, ‘What have I done?’”
But Usher was determined to make it happen, and to do it in Rutland. And
business is prospering. December through February are her slow months but March
and April begin a steady incline to a busy season throughout the spring and
summer, with weddings and prom dresses and custom projects. Her business has
grown every year, and last year was her busiest yet.
Usher says every day is different, and every project is different; some days
a thousand things get done, others she’ll work on one project all day.
The time management and effort it takes to run the business she says she’s
still figuring out as it goes along. In addition to her sewing skills, being
able to communicate with clients and understand exactly what they’re looking for
is a big part of her business.
“Whether it’s hemming pants two inches — not three inches but two inches — or
a wedding gown with 42 layers of tulle, listening and people skills are a big
piece of it,” she said. “Customers are by far the most important piece. Without
them I don’t have a business. I try to welcome people in when they come here
because I am happy that they’re here. I’m happy that they decided to pick me to
do their work for them. I live here and I want to be part of the community and
part of bringing good positive energy back to Rutland.”
People have suggested to her doing business in other towns like Manchester
where earning potential is possibly higher, but, “that’s not really the point,”
Usher says. “I mean yes I want to make a living, and I do, but I really wanted
to be part of bringing back good stuff to this town because this town deserves
it. Some of the best people I’ve ever met live right here. There’s a great
theater, great art, we have a lot of good stuff here.”
Businesses in the Brazilian city of S?o Paulo will have to start thinking
twice before they try to stop a woman from breastfeeding in public, because if
they do, they could be fined $150.
Despite laws that specifically give a woman the right to nurse her baby
wherever she is legally allowed to be, breastfeeding harassment continues to be
a problem, not only in the U.S., but worldwide. Nearly every day, I read (or
write) about a mother who is doing nothing more than feeding her child when an
employee or representative of an organization asks her to move, cover up or
leave the premises entirely. In nearly every state in the U.S., doing so is
against the law.
Breastfeeding harassment isn't unqiue to the U.S., however. It's enough of a
problem in S?o Paulo, the most populous city in the South American country of
Brazil, that the mayor is expected to sign this bill into law within the next
few weeks. Once the bill is signed into law, violators can be slapped with a
fine equivalent to $150.
I love this move. If breaking the law isn't enough of a deterrent, then maybe
the addition of a fine will be. There are so many instances of under-trained
employees incorrectly harassing breastfeeding moms, and even store owners asking
moms to cover up so it doesn't "bother" the other customers, that there should
be an additional punishment for illegally confronting a nursing mom.
Breastfeeding a baby is feeding a baby. Just because it's with a boob doesn't
mean it's immoral, sexual, improper or akin to urinating, defecating or
masturbating. Some moms prefer to nurse in private, but that doesn't mean all
moms have to, and if a mom doesn't use a cover, it doesn't mean she isn't
modest. Telling a breastfeeding mother to stay home, pump and use bottles or
hide out in the bathroom or her car is putting your issues on her.
Nursing a baby in public is actually the best way to normalize it. When
children see a mom nursing her baby, they don't think it's a big deal unless the
adults they're with think it's a big deal. Also, bothering a nursing mom might
not only embarrass or upset her, but it can derail her confidence and make her
less likely to nurse in public the next time her baby is hungry. And that, my
friends, is wrong.
So bravo, S?o Paulo, and maybe this will keep people in that city from
hassling a mom who is doing nothing more than nourishing her kid, which is how
it should be.
Your Wi-Fi is more than a luxury, it's a necessity. So the next time you lose
your Wi-Fi connection, try one of these seven simple tips to get back up and
surfing in no time flat.
1. Check for a software solution Most computer operating software offers a
tool to troubleshoot connectivity issues. For Windows, you can find the
troubleshooter on the "control panel" under "network and sharing" and
2. Double-check cable connections Once you’ve ruled out a software problem,
check all of the cables connecting your router to its power source and your
3. Reboot the router If the router is properly connected, the next likely
culprit would be the router itself. Reboot the router by disconnecting it
completely from its power source for a full 10 seconds. No cheating! You really
do need to leave it unplugged that long. After 10 seconds, plug it back in and
see if your connectivity returns.
4. Splitters If your Wi-Fi signal unexpectedly drops on the reg, check out
your splitters. If you have a -7dB splitter to your broadband modem (cable or
FIOS) upgrade it to a -3.5dB version to boost the signal. If you have a
three-way splitter coming to your router, but only use it for two cables,
consider replacing it with a two-way splitter for a better signal.
5. Intermittent router shutdown If your router is shutting itself down
intermittently, for no apparent reason, you might have an older router that’s
overheating. Check the vents on the router and clear out the dust with
compressed air to maximize ventilation and cooling.
6. Test for speed If your Wi-Fi is operating but still running slow, consider
running an easy test to make sure you’re getting the right amount of bandwidth
from your internet service provider (ISP). There are free diagnostic tools you
can use to run a speed test on your home internet signal, including
Speedtest.net, Speedtest.org and apps like WiFi SweetSpots.
7. Consider making the call Most internet service providers have diagnostic
tools to help you troubleshoot your Wi-Fi problems, including pinging your
router remotely to make sure it’s receiving a signal. You might have to wait on
hold, but once you get the right person on the phone, they can be very helpful.
Also, if you have access to a working internet connection through your cell
network provider, consider the live chat options with your ISP customer service,
which often have shorter wait times and can be much more effective in solving
Speculoos — or cookie butter — is a tasty European spread, and here it's used
to put a fun twist on basic, everyday fudge with just five ingredients.
Cookie butter — also commonly known as Speculoos — is an amazingly delicious
treat found in Europe, especially in areas such as the Netherlands, Germany and
other neighboring countries. With an appearance and consistency very similar to
that of peanut butter, Speculoos is made from crushed cookies and tastes almost
like a gingerbread cookie.
I took the idea of fudge but swapped out the peanut butter and instead used
cookie butter in its place. This rich and very decadent treat is perfect when
you want a little something sweet to get your sugar fix. The spices and
gingerlike taste add a nice contrast against the sweet flavor, creating
something super satisfying.
Line an 8-inch baking dish with aluminum foil, and set it aside.
To a pan over medium-high heat, add all the ingredients except for the cookie
butter, and bring to a light boil, about 5 minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium-low, and carefully stir in the cookie butter.
Continue simmering the mixture until it becomes nice and thick, about 4 to 5
Carefully pour the hot mixture into the baking dish, and allow it cool for 10
Place the dish into the refrigerator, and chill it for 2 hours or until the
fudge is very firm.
Remove the fudge from the baking dish, and cut it into desired-size pieces.
My Sally Hansen? Miracle Match was "Get Mod," a bright white nail polish from
the Miracle Gel? line, and the description for my personality could not be more
"Think outside the box is your motto... so that means hosting funky dinner
parties and modeling your quirky fashion finds.”
THIS. IS. SO. ME! Hit the nail on the head. So I thought I would show you how
to bring your personality into your outfits with your color and really step up
your style for spring. The best part? All of these tips will work regardless of
what your color match was!
Tip #1: Manicure This tip is obvious. Integrate your personality and your
color with a fresh manicure! I tend to always wear the same style of nails;
long, oval shaped nails with a glitter half moon. I'm transitioning out of my
dark, black nails that I had all winter and brightening up with a fresh coat of
Tip #2: Handbag Your bag is something that can become your signature piece,
so this is the perfect time to bring a lot of personality into your outfit!
Switch up your style by changing out your purse. I've been carrying a dark purse
all winter, so this white purse immediately lightens up my outfits while
matching my style.
Tip #3: Shoes If you're a little timid about playing around with a lot of
color, or if you work in an office, this is a great way to bring some life to
your outfit while staying professional.
Tip #4: Monochromatic Wearing a monochromatic outfit (like my look) is really
fresh for spring. White on white, pink on pink, the options are endless.
Layering the same color immediately makes your look more modern, so you can
participate in this trend regardless of your color match! My tip for layering
colors: Mix up the textures if you're keeping the color solid. This helps an
outfit to look more luxe!
Tip #5: Fringe Fringe is one of the biggest trends for spring and one of my
personal favorites. It's impossible to not feel fun when you're wearing this
