All you need is a balance or exercise ball, a step stool, hand weights (you can use canned food if you don't have any) and if you don't have barbells at home either, try using a broom.

    When you're starting to work out, start small- do two reps of 10 or 20, then build up.

    Dear Mouthy Housewives,

    I'm embarrassed to ask this question, but here it goes. I noticed that when my boyfriend and I are intimate, he keeps his eyes closed. My previous lovers definitely kept their eyes open during sex. Do you think that means he's fantasizing about other women?

    Signed,

    Insecure

    Dear Insecure,

    There are a few reasons why your lover may have his eyes closed, like maybe he's thinking about other (more attractive)

    Muggles and young wizards alike gathered at the New York premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 held at the Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher hall Monday night. Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint appeared exceptionally dashing in their black suits, while Emma Watson's Bottega Veneta dress took our breath away.

    Let's take another look at that gown!

    "It is a little bittersweet. It's bizarre to be here," Radcliffe said to USA Today. "I don't think we ever thought this day would come."

    Stars such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick (and their lucky-duck son James Wilkie), Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets, and the director of the first Potter films, Chris Columbus, attended the premiere to say goodbye to their favorite magical franchise.

    My original top 10 top 10 dating profile red flags intended to save you the ridiculous amount of time that I have now forever lost by corresponding with and/or going out with some total losers I met online was apparently very popular. So, I've gone on to provide you with ten more guys to avoid!

    Disclaimer: To any of the men whose online dating profiles inspired and unknowingly lent to the quotes that comprise my post, let's all hope for your sake that knowing is truly half the battle.

    1. "Bonus Point" Guy
    You know this guy, the dude that gives "bonus points" for anything and everything. If you "have cookie baking and/or cookie eating skills," check this out, you get bonus points. If you're as comfortable in Manolos as you are in flip-flops or hiking boots, in his book you are the recipient of MAJOR bonus points. Trust me when I say the bonus to you comes from avoiding this guy who clearly

  • Mila Kunis Accepts Date Invite From a Marine!

    Hollywood hasn't phased movie star, Mila Kunis.

    Nora Breznai, BettyConfidential.com


    When Sgt Scott Moore, 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines, posted a video to YouTube, inviting Mila Kunis to attend the Marine Corps Ball with him, an actual acceptance did not seem real. But, Kunis HAS accepted and will attend the ball with Sgt. Moore on November 18 in Greensboro, North Carolina!

    Moore has Justin Timberlake, Kunis's Friends with Benefits costar, to thank for his hot date. Fox News asked Kunis about the video post, and it was Timberlake who excitedly said, "Have you seen this? Have you heard about this? You need to do it for your country." He then sent Moore a direct message, saying, "I'm going to work on this, man. This needs to go down."

    The actress gladly accepted. "I'll go. I'll do it for you," Kunis said. Even with all of her success, Kunis is still a down-to-earth good girl!

  • Kate Middleton Style Watch: Kate Conquers Canada0

    Kate looks amazing where ever she goes. How does she do it?

    -Beata Cherepakhina, BettyConfidential.com


    As Kate Middleton (the Duchess of Cambridge, I know, I know) made her way through Canada with her fabulous hubby, Prince William, she mastered the art of the quick change. She donned multiple chic ensembles, sometimes as many as four a day. We'd love to know her secret.

    Read on for all of Kate's looks in Canada.

    Friday


    Friday may have been the start of our holiday weekend, but July 1 also marked Canada Day. It's a national holiday celebrating the country's birthday. Appropriately, Kate got inspired by the country's flag, donning red, white, and maple leaf.

    The Duchess's outfit consisted of a fascinator with red maple leaves specially made by Sylvia Fletcher of Lock and Company for the tour, an Anya Hindmarch Fan clutch, Albini Square Cut Court shoe in red and Reiss Nannette zip frill dress in cream. Kate thought the dress was so nice… she actually wore it

  • Love It or Hate It: The Best and Worst Dressed at BAFTA!

    -Evette Brown, BettyConfidential.com


    After months of red carpet fashion drought, alas, we had the BAFTAS: Brits to Watch event in Los Angeles this past weekend. Held at the Belasco Theater, the star-studded event brought 42 of the best up-and-coming British talents together with some of Hollywood's elite including Jennifer Lopez and Blake Lively for an evening of A-list fun.

    When the red carpet is rolled out, celebs pull out the hot designers. From Alexander McQueen to Emilio Pucci, the fiercest names in fashion were on display as TV and films' best posed for the cameras. Some stars hit the fashion nail on the head, while others fell short of the mark. The stars shone bright in LA on Saturday night. Here are the best and worst dressed.

  • Top 10 Foods to Eat for Healthy, Glowing Skin



    These nutrient-rich foods will give your skin a replenishing boost.

    -Carolyn Gregoire, BettyConfidential.com

    It may be a cliché, but the simple truth is that you are what you eat. Just as radiant, glowing skin is an indicator of good health and a nutrient-rich diet, a lackluster complexion reflects poor diet choices and overall health. Your skin is an indication of what's going on inside the body, and great skin starts from the inside.

    If you eat high quantities of processed foods, sugar, caffeine, and fried foods, chances are, your skin is not going to be looking its most radiant. But, loading up on fruits and veggies, whole grains, and vitamin-rich foods makes for a healthy body and, in turn, healthier, more radiant skin.

    Check out these skin-boosting super foods that contribute to overall good health, and contain properties which help your skin become its most healthy and radiant:
