    Wait, what? David Beckham has regrets? Given the overwhelming success of his life and career, it seems difficult to believe, doesn't it? But yes, ladies, it's true: David Beckham has regrets. And the biggest one is fashion-related.

    Do you remember that one time he and wife Posh-sorry, Victoria-stepped out together in head-to-toe black leather? In case you need to jog your memory, maybe this will help:

    David and Victoria BeckhamDavid and Victoria Beckham

    Yeah. That time. "Me and Victoria wore matching black leather outfits once," the football/soccer/whatever star recently told H&M Life according to People. "That's one where I look back, like, 'What were we thinking?' We laugh about that one." Ah well-everyone makes mistakes, especially in the prime of their youth!

    That said, though, he seems to have moved on quite nicely; in addition to, y'know, that awesome athletic career and

    The quality of your relationship can affect the rest of your life. Don't you want both to be the best they can be?

    -PJ Gach, BettyConfidential.com

    happy couplehappy couple

    Tod Patkin, author of the Finding Happiness: One Man's Quest to Beat Depression and Anxiety and-Finally-Let the Sunshine In (StepWise Press) thinks that, "…Because couples allow their relationships to run on autopilot, but still expect them to stay healthy and exciting…But the truth is, like everything else in life, relationships don't work that way. We must learn to put as much-no, even more-effort into our marriages as we do in trying to succeed professionally or keeping our gardens, houses, or cars looking top shelf."

    Tod believes that a happy relationship and a happy marriage is really what can make or break you. As he says, "If a marriage isn't good, you're going to have trouble feeling fulfilled in other areas as well.

    "I know from experience that if you get it right here, it's easier to get it right in all of the

    As we wind up on the remaining winter weeks, getting hands back to where they were pre-winter's dryness and redness is a tough task. Luckily, we have lead esthetician of Bliss Spa Soho, Yelena Royzen on hand (no pun intended) for recommendations on how to bring your hands back to hydrated health in five simple steps!

    1. Apply nightly

    "When you sleep, 80 percent of the skin's energy is devoted to repair. I recommend wearing a pair of skin softening gloves overnight. The gel lining inside of the gloves works to force feed cream and moisture into your skin that immediately softens hands, leaving them feeling smooth and hydrated, even on the coldest winter days."

    There are just some people who refuse to get out of the limelight, even when their 15 minutes of fame are up.

    According to People, Posh and Becks bought the 24-acre Hertfordshire estate back in 1999 for $4 million, just after they tied the knot. Originally a seven-bedroom home, the couple is said to have spent millions in renovations to add such things as a 52-ft. garden pavilion with a marble floor, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, a recording studio, and a gym. When David signed with Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007, he, Victoria, and sons Brookyln, Romeo, andCruz headed out to LA, where they settled in an
