- Kate Middleton Stuns in Royal Family's Heirloom Tiara
It seems like Kate might have a thing for the late Princess Margaret. The Queen's younger sister - a bit of a glamorous wild child back in the day - was the previous occupant of Kensington Palace's apartment 1A, the same residence the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge so famously moved into this year. And last night, Kate set hearts aflutter by finally acting like a princess and walking out the front door with a dazzling diamond tiara on her (gray hair-free) head - the same tiara Princess Margaret so loved. Named the "papyrus tiara" as well as the "lotus tiara," it was created in 1923 by Queen Elizabeth II's mother, also named Elizabeth (but known in popular culture simply as The Queen Mum who had a sharp personal style and was played to sparky perfection by Helena Bonham Carter in The Kings Speech).

- Why Running Isn't Helping You Lose Weight
Doing one 45-minute run once a week or a couple 20-minute runs won't burn enough calories to lose weight. In order to lose a pound a week, you'll need to cut 500 calories each day, through a combination of diet and exercise. If losing weight is your goal, run three to four times per week and incorporate other forms of calorie-burning cardio and/or metabolism-boosting strength training on the other days.
