Over the holiday, my family and I met at our normal halfway point in between Eastern Virginia and Western Tennessee. Also some friends of ours with their children came with us also. Smack dab in the Smoky Mountains we shared laughter and cheer but without my knowledge also some fear was shared between the children. During their nights of getting reacquainted with friends and cousins, the idea of telling ghost stories was brought up. Bloody Mary was mentioned along with a very unfriendly wolf.
What was once a pleasurable time of the day has turned into a nightmare. Instead of kisses and chimes of "See you in the morning," it has turned into dagger hugs and "Please let me sleep with you, I can't stop thinking about Bloody Mary!!"
As as child, I can remember the stories that were told between cousins and friends that would haunt my images before bed. Imagining a blood streaked woman with deranged hair would leap from the mirror and claw me until my skin bled was frighting to me. Instead

I can remember the days when celebrities would shield their children from the eyes of the media. In today's time, with social networking and news outlets available with the flick of the finger, shutterbugs have taken to the street in droves ready to catch their next meal ticket with a camera. More times than not, celebrities have their picture taken while grabbing a cup of coffee, pumping gas or taking their young children to school.Read More »from User post: Should celebrity children be photographed?
Being well known can often times bring about unwanted exposure of personal ideas and allegiances and welcome in all walks of life into a person with a high status of being "known" in the public eye. Many celebrities have seen and felt people who meet them often times know them better than they know their neighbor. Playing characters on screen and witnessing daily photographs available in gossip magazines and online in blogs and news outlets, celebrities are available 24/7 for your viewing pleasure.
As a parent of young children, I would be nervous about

As the owner of sensitive skin, I understand anytime I change my skin regime, she will protest. Instead of harsh words of revolt, my skin erupts into red bumps and puss filled pockets of hate. For this month's Beauty Guru reviews, she surprised me. It's as if she has waited her whole life for Kiehl's s Ultra Facial Cream. She responded with an evening of tone and a restored balance of vibrancy not seen in years.Read More »from My Favorite Moisturizer Ever!! Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream
After months of sitting in front of my computer blogging on a broad range of topics, the palm and fingers of my hand have met my face more times than ever before. While visions of creative thoughts poured from my brain onto my computer screen, the idea my hands could bring about such destruction on my face never occurred. So with red streaked chin and cheeks, something had to be done I had never done before.
I had to purchase my first batch of foundation. The years of getting by with loose powder seemed but a long lost memory.

There is something to be said about nudity: People look.Read More »from User post: Vanity Fair Sells Tiger Shirtless and You Will Buy It
Playboy would have never survived if men and women didn't want to see other people's nakedness open for other's to see. Peep shows have been around since the beginning of time. Remember in James Cameron's, Titanic, how men stole lustful glances at Kate Winslet's character when only her ankle was exposed for the air to breathe? It's an ankle!
The industry that sells sex as a mainstream product from cola to cell phones continues to show promise. There is something to be said about the human body unclothed. People seem to love it.
In Vanity Fair's February issue, Tiger Woods stands shirtless for the world to see. While pumping iron with sultry look at hand, Tiger Woods gives the world a sense into his world, "Pre-Scandal."
Shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz before the media grasped it's hand into Tiger's struggles with adultery and drug use.

If the new promo is any indication of what is in store for the new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, you can certain there will be no holding back.
Who says after babies and weddings the fun has to stop? The new promo sure makes living a "Kardashian Life" one for the books!
The sisters in black lingerie and seductive poses screams family values, right? T
he E! promo poster teases "What a difference a year makes." With Khloe showing off her new wedding sparkler, Kourtney showing off her baby rump and Kim of course showing off her booty, the ad leaves little to the imagination and hopes to bring in big ratings.
What is your take on the Family Photo? Does E! take it too far?
As a consumer of hair care brands you can pick up while shopping for dish detergent and tampons, receiving Redken's Body Full line was a real treat. I haven't had the luxury of treating my hair to a salon brand since my grandmother decided I was old enough to pay for my own hair care needs.Read More »from Redken's Body Full Line Is Not For Everyone
With packaging that screams "I'm cooler than what you use," and a scent reminiscent of $100 hair cuts, Redken's allure has it's place but when the hair that grows from your head is not what your hair care line treats, some mishaps can occur.
Redken's Body Full shampoo promises volume for baby fine hair and the conditioner claims to be weightless and a detangler. A fan of the shampoo but without the help of a strong conditioner to hold down the coarseness of my hair, it seemed to get lost. After washing you can apply the Body Full Instant Bodifer evenly into your strands. The mousse claims to provide volume for thin hair. The problem occurred when the combing process of hair care began.

Pictures taken Wednesday on location at Katie Holmes' new movie, The Romantics, show her bottle feeding her three year old, Suri Cruise.
We've heard of women who breast feed until this age but from a silicone nipple? Say it isn't so?
If you saw a woman feeding their three year old child from a bottle, what would you think?

As a mother of an eight year who often gets confused as a kindergartner, reading the news released today of a two year old insurance has denied to cover because she is too small is rather frightening.Read More »from Child Too Small For Health Insurance: What Next? You're Too Tall, Too Short, Too Skinny, Too Fat?
Wednesday morning "The Today Show" covered the story of 2-year-old Aislin Bates. With a weight of 22 pounds and in the 3rd percentile of children her age, United Health Care has decided to deny this child insurance. They claim she doesn't meet height and weight requirements of others her age. Her doctor has described her as perfectly healthy; never having been sick with anything more than a cold.

NBC's medical expert Dr. Nancy Snyderman was more pointed in her criticism: "This is just so bogus. A pre-existing condition for a child this age is birth, let's be real..... This is why things have to change."
Just last month my daughter and I went for her yearly well check up and learned she is in the 5th percentile of her age group. She's always been small and our doctors

For Amy Winehouse, who after being forced to divorce her junkie, ex-husband Blake Fielder, she suffered like many put in a tough spot--though probably more taking into account her addiction to heroin that came to light while being married to this wonderful man.
After spending months in St. Lucia while trying to breaking free from her old partying ways, she has reawakened again in a hospital room but this time instead of waking from her normal heroin induced comas, she is coming to light with a new bustier chest.
One patient told The Sun : "She was wandering around in a daze, humming under her breath. She had tubes hanging out of her bust so I asked what she'd had done.
"She started rambling and said, 'I've had a boob job. I 'ad 'em done for Strictly. I wanted to look my best and I'm sick of stuffing hankies down my bra'. [via The Sun ]
