    Shortly after Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo announced that they were going to turn their trip down the altar into a reality TV show, they did it! The two were married this past Friday at a secret tropical location, the Daily Mail reports.

    Nick said, "Our wedding invitations were in the form of a plane ticket. 'We told them they were going away and the attire was 'island chic.' It was all very vague."

    The wedding was small, only 35 friends and family joined the two at their palm tree getaway. Vanessa wore 6.0 karat earrings loaned to her from celebrity jeweler, Martin Katz, and a two piece outfit designed by Monique Lhuillier. The top was a lace corset embellished with roses and crystal. The skirt was hand-tufted and made from silk faille. Nick wore a Dolce & Gabbana suit.

  • Sexpert Julie: Understanding Why Men and Women Bond Differently

    What turns him on and makes him feel closer to you is way different than what works for you. Sexpert Julie explains why that is and how to meet halfway.

    Tis the season for summer blockbusters, and your anticipated choice for your next romantic date with your man would obviously be Crazy Stupid Love, starring Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone and Steve Carrell. To your astonishment, your date has bought tickets for Cowboys & Aliens. Your man is excited about Cowboys & Aliens star Olivia Wilde who is rated number one in Maxim magazine's "Hot 100" list of 2009. While you may like Daniel Craig's washboard abs as much as the next girl, and you would enjoy this movie under different circumstances, it does not fit your idea of a romantic movie with your man followed by a candlelight dinner and then home for some sexual bonding. Of course, your man is completely baffled by your annoyance.

  • Zac Efron and Mark Wahlberg: What Do They Have in Common?

    These two superstars share something with only 1 in 100 men!

    -PJ Gach,

    zac efron mark wahlberg

    Hunky Zac Efron and Mark Wahlberg always look awesome shirtless. Thousands of women all over the world have never, ever noticed that these two A-listers have something in common (besides amazing abs). What is it? They both have an extra nipple!

    We know that out of thousands of hopefuls, only a few actors make it to the same status as Zac and Mark. You actually have a better chance of making it as an actor or actress than being born with an extra nipple. According to Dr. Sandra Lee, an Upland, California based dermatologist, "It is not widely known, but about one in 50 women and one in 100 men have a third nipple. This goes by several names besides "third nipple." It is a supernumerary nipple, accessory nipple, pseudomamma, polythelia, or polymastia. It is often not entirely developed as a fully functioning nipple. Sometimes it can be mistaken for a mole. The third nipple usually

  • How Is Technology Affecting Your Relationship?

    Is it helping or hurting your relationship?

    couple with cell phonecouple with cell phone

    I love technology. I just can't get enough of it sometimes- I want the latest gadget, app, hardware or software program. I love that it's made doing business across the world with colleagues a joy, and I love staying in touch with all my family and friends that are scattered far and wide. I can't imagine life without it.

    However, with all the advances in technology to help us communicate faster, cheaper and clearer, many people are more lonely and isolated than ever before.

    Whatever your position on technology, the simple facts are, we can't avoid it. Technology is embedded into every part of our day, from the moment we wake up until we go to sleep at night. Unless you live in a cave, or somewhere very remote with no contact with others, we actually need technology to go about our day-to-day living.

    The problem is, technology can get in the

  • Kate + Pippa Middleton Style Watch: Kate Says Goodbye to LA, Pippa Loves Coffee!

    These sisters always dress to impress.
    -Beata Cherepakhina,

    kate and pippakate aand pippa

    We have to admit we're quite sad the Royal Tour is over because it means we'll be seeing less of Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, or, as most of us prefer to call her, Kate Middleton. Since heading back across the pond, Prince William and Kate have kept things quiet and out of the public eye.

    We last saw Kate in LA on July 10, 2011. At the end of her visit, she went to the Inner-City Arts Project in downtown Los Angeles, before she and her hunk of a husband flew back to England. Kate wore a navy crocheted top, white pleated skirt and navy heels. The top and skirt are from Whistles. Don't bother googling for them; they're (of course) sold out. We're thinking the navy suede shoes are from L.K. Bennett as she loves their footwear.

  • 5 Things to Know About Vacay Hook Ups

    For many of us summer means vacation. And vacation means the possibility of summer flings. Whether you're at the beach, on a cruise, or at a cabin on a lake, these are the 5 things you need to know about hooking up on vacay.

    1. Pack Smart.
    Just like you pack your Alka-Seltzer and Copper Tone in preparation for your vacation activities, be sure to pack your Trojans and birth control in case those activities take a turn for the sexual.

    2. Remember Your Standards.
    You're on vacation, not your last fivr days on earth. Just because you're feeling carefree doesn't mean you should be so carefree that you're ignoring your standards. Don't go sleeping with some kinda nasty guy you're not really that into just because you're away from home. And if you're not the kind of girl who enjoys having sex in casual situation, don't think that being on vacation is going to change that. In order to have the most

    Kate Middleton's style and beauty captivated America as she toured Canada and the Los Angeles area with that guy she married in April (what's his name again?). We at Lock & Mane, much like the rest of the world, have had a huge hair crush on Kate since the moment her engagement to Prince William was announced. And her hair perfection on this North American tour has known no bounds. The tour included a polo match, a red carpet event and numerous state ceremonies and the Duchess consistently outshone everyone else in attendance.

    Here are our picks for Kate's best hair looks during her stateside tour.

  • 'How Can I Tell If a Guy Really Likes Me'

    It's a tiny little sign, but it says a mouthful about how the person feels about me.

    -Faye Brennan,

    Some women have their own "signs" they look out for to see if a date is really into them. "He's smiling a lot and I just made him laugh (good sign). Ooh, he touched my leg (very good sign), but he keeps checking his cell phone (bad sign)..."

    I have one sign that's foolproof for me, but it's not as obvious as giving me a flirty touch or laughing at my jokes. This sign is a very small, specific thing a guy does that immediately tells me whether or not he really likes me -- and I've been right 90 percent of the time.

    It relates back to my pre-teen years, when I had really bad skin, easily the worst in my grade. It made me so self-conscious and shy because I thought it was all people were looking at when they talked to me. I used to intently watch people's eyes -- were they looking in mine when I spoke, or my chin, forehead and cheeks? It drove me insane to
