Over the weekend, Bar Refaeli posted this picture to her Instagram…
Then the lovely and extremely funny Elizabeth Banks re-tweeted the photo with the caption… “To have this life w that body. Geez.”
And, that is why I LOVE Elizabeth Banks.

While on vacation, the pop-star debuted some new ink…
The new tat features a pair of praying hands with three roses underneath. I wonder what Justin’s on-again gf, Selena Gomez, thinks of the new ink.
JB has MANY other tats…
“Believe” written on his left arm, the outline of a seagull on his hip, “Jesus” in Hebrew on his ribcage, a picture of Jesus on he left calf, the Japanese Kanji symbol for “music” on his right arm and a crown on his right collarbone.
What do you guys think of the new tattoo?

Thanks to Olivia Wilde’s Twitter post, I am now aware of a really, really cool organization called Peace Bomb.
On December 28th, Olivia tweeted, “This x mas gift blew my mind. It’s a bracelet made from a bomb. (It’s THE bomb? Sorry) Check out http://www.peace-bomb.com” — along with this photo:
With the purchase on 1 bracelet, 3 meters on bomb littered lands in Laos is cleared. HOW AWESOME!
The mission of Peace Bomb is to…
1. DIVERSIFY INCOME generating opportunities for subsistence farmers doubling as artisans.
2. GROW CAPITAL for the locally-managed Village Development Fund.
3. COLLABORATE WITH local NGOs and experts in bomb removal and education.
4. FUND CLEARANCE of unexploded ordnance from Lao fields, forests, and farm.
5. RAISE AWARENESS of war legacies and the need to ban cluster munitions.
Definitely take a minute to check out the Peace Bomb website. They have amazing bracelets and necklaces. Such a great cause!
I’m ordering mine right now!

It’s that time of year again, the fashionistas favorite film event, the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival. Yes, yes, the objectives of the film festival are to premiere new films and to acquire distributors, however this event has become a MAJOR fashion extravaganza. Every A-lister is in attendance and what they wear on the red carpet is almost as important as what we watch on the big screen!
The opening ceremony for this year’s festival was held on Wednesday at the Palais des Fesitvals and once again the top stars didn’t miss it. Eva Longoria, Jessica Chastain and one of my fashion favorites, Diane Kruger have already made a big impact on the carpet. Definitely keep an eye out for this year’s stand out films and drop dead gorgeous fashion!

While you’re there make sure to look at all the amazing healthy tips and beauty advice from real women!
Two O.P.I nail polishes for $1 each and a CC Skye Enamel Hinge Cuff that retails for $190 for $10! Win-win!
Although they did have some amazing Jimmy Choos for $75, I was able to hold back and be happy with my purchases.
CC Skye has some amazing jewelry, check out their collection HERE!
Definitely keep an eye out for sample sales around your area. Its a great opportunity to find high end items at a fraction of the price… Like I said, win-win!
Although I am now officially a Californian, I will sadly not be in attendance at Coachella this year. (Currently wiping away the tears.) But my sadness is heavily outweighed by the fashion that accompanies this major music festival. There is such a specific Coachella style that I absolutely love and every year oodles and oodles of celebrities buy into the Coachella Couture!
This rocker/hippie/half-naked look is sometimes hard to pull off, but every year Harper’s Bazaar reports on how to shop the Coachella looks. Check it out HERE! The first week of Coachella attracted the best of the best: Vanessa Hudgens, Katy Perry, Nina Dobrev, Fergie and Rihanna. My favorite has to be Nina, its simple and understated, yet refreshing and free. Let me tell you, there is no wrong way to dress Coachella style, so all of you Weekend 2 goers, stop pulling out your hair trying to decide what to bring, just go with cool, casual and maybe a but quirky!

My fashion find this week is compliments of Target.
These Vanilla Sky leopard print skinny jeans look just like the Current Elliot jeans I have been eyeing for weeks, however these are a ninth of the price.
These jeans fit great and come in gray leopard print and tan leopard print.
Check out the picture below to see how I styled my new pair!
I paired the jeans with a bright colored top to give the outfit a bit more life. The leopard print by nature is very rock star, so I wore them with black leather booties and a black leather jacket. This is only one of the MANY options you can try with these awesome jeans. Click here to order you jeans now!
