This is awesome! Check out this fiber optic wallpaper... If you want it now though, you'll have to blow $231 on just ONE roll. There are several color options, but it looks like you're limited to flowers as far as the design goes. Here's to bringing wallpaper back! I think it would be too much for a large room, but really cool for a dining nook or small living space.

So what if these boots came out earlier in the season? I want them RIGHT NOW! Do you know how hard it is to find boots these days? Especially for girls with more, shall I say, "athletic" calves??? I tried these on and they fit like a dream and are outrageously gorgeous with a suit or jeans... If you're on the market, RUN don't walk for these Tory Burch Motorcycle Boots- they are almost sold out across the country!
BUT- I have a connection. E-mail if you want these boots for 20% off!

If you read enough fashion magazines, you'll surely come across pieces marked "Price Upon Request" on the same page as items happily informing you they are $250,000. I always assumed that meant the cost was so astronomical that you would go blind just seeing it. Apparently this is not always the case, as the NY Times investigated.
In fact, more than half the time the item in question just never went into production! "Two editors at different fashion publications, who would not speak publicly because they did not want to embarrass their employers, said “price upon request” was usually a misnomer. It has become a euphemism used to credit designs that were never produced for sale. It is appearing more commonly, they said, for a clear reason: less and less runway fashion is actually being produced."Lies, all lies! Though supposedly "'We say ‘price upon request’ when an item isn’t produced because the designer will make the item at cost, if they decide to, depending on interest.'"...which ultimately still means REALLY RIDICULOUSLY INSANELY expensive.
This really can't be real... there is this "exciting" new skin treatment which promises to permanently revitalize aging skin with injection of healthy young skin cells. OK- that sounds ok-until you hear that those young skin cells come from babies' foreskins. Yes, newborn babies are circumcised and then the foreskins are sent to a lab and turned into anti-aging potion or whatever.
Developed by a biomedical company, "Vavelta" is a clear liquid, made from millions of microscopic new skin cells cultured from babies' foreskins, which is then injected into the skin to treat wrinkles, sun damage, and scars. The clinical trials, which took place in London using "material" from a US hospital, have just been completed and reportedly show the technique to be "astonishingly effective." This is maybe no less insane than paralyzing your face with poison four times a year- but it's certinaly a lot creepier.

Louis Vuitton has just launched two patented diamond cuts.
The Vuitton diamonds have between 61 and 77 facets and have been set into a bracelet, a pair of earrings, two brooches, a ring and a necklace-the latter consisting of 1,001 tiny brilliant-cut diamonds totaling 15 carats, coexisting with 65 round flower diamonds (49 carats) and 79 pointed ones (44 carats), for a combined bling bang of 108 carats that retails for about $4 million.
I guess times aren't tough for everybody...
Fergie looking not her usual svelte self, as she put on 13 pounds for a recent movie role in "Nine." She did it by eating fish and chips apparently... what I noticed most was how busty she looked! That is crazy!

A British 19-year-old has officially changed his name to “Captain Fantastic Faster Than Superman Spiderman Batman Wolverine Hulk And The Flash Combined.” The Glastonbury, England, teenager -- originally named George Garratt -- said his new name, which is thought to be the world's longest, has so outraged his grandmother that she is no longer speaking to him, The Telegraph reported Monday. The teen said he used an online service to officially change his name for a $20 fee. "I wanted to be unique," Captain Fantastic said of his name choice. "I decided upon a theme of superheroes." Why not just Clark Kent?
This is way too cute... the original showed about 50 kids. How do you find 50 talented little ones like this? I can't deal!
