  • Inside Rhianna's VIP Birthday Party..

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

    Rihanna turned 23 Sunday--and the pop star celebrated in high style with some very famous friends! Jay-Z, Zac Efron and Snoop Dog were just a couple of the stars that attended her exclusive birthday bash held at a private home in Beverly Hills, PEOPLE reports.

    After performing at the NBA All-Star game in Los Angeles, Rihanna hurried to the house where her party was taking place. Once she arrived, a source tells PEOPLE the singer grabbed a Sprinkles red velvet cupcake with a Barbados flag on the top and then snuck to a back room to celebrate with some close girl friends. When she emerged later to join the main party, she was wearing a pink dress with purple fringe around the bottom.

    The source reveals that Rihanna gave Efron and Ryan Phillippe big hugs when she saw them. The pair of Hollywood bachelors reportedly spent the night hanging together. Mary J. Blige hung with pal Jay-Z and "squealed with excitement" when Diddy arrived a little later in the night.

    Snoop Dog and Warren G arrived around 1 a.m. and sang along to old school rap songs while the guests cheered on. Joel Madden, Cee Lo Green and Christina Milian were also spotted celebrating with Rihanna.

    Although Katy Perry wasn't there to help her best pal celebrate, she wished Rihanna a big happy birthday while performing a concert in Lisbon. Entertainment Weekly reports she also sang an acoustic version of the birthday girl's hit song, Only Girl in the World. See video of her birthday shout below:

  • Clay Matthews shaved his head!!!!

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

    Clay Matthews Posts Shaved Head Pictures on Twitter; Did Packers LB Really Do it? Green Bay Packers Linebacker Clay Matthews sent shockwaves rippling across the sports world today when the hulking Linebacker with the flowing golden locks posted pictures of a decidedly shiny bald head on Twitter earlier today. "Just got my Britney Spears on... what do u think???" the Packer with the most recognizable hair asked his followers on the social media site.

    BUT...dont get your panties in a bundle yet, he did it all for a suave commercial...

    Dont worry, he's still got the golden tresses....YAY!!

  • They are calling her the Female Justin Beiber...WOW

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

    I could not believe when I was told this little girl was 10 years old with a voice like this....then to find out she wrote the song too..it's called "She Needs Love"

    Heather Russell from Atlanta is an amazing singer that blows away pretty much everyone that hears her and blows the tween singing sensations that have gone before out of the water.

    A song she wrote herself, "She Needs Love," is circulating on the web and creating a buzz that bellies that of Justin Bieber way back when before he became "The Biebs." She signed with Rob Fusari last year, and people are saying she could be the next Bieber or Mariah Carey. No offense to either of them (well, maybe a little to J.B.), but I'd rather listen to her than either of them.

    She is amazingly talented, and the emotion in her voice is piercing. "Soulful" is the word I keep hearing used to describe her, and I can't think of a better one. Listen to her here and see if you agree:



    She starts singing at :43

  • Natural Remedies....

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

    Natural remedies for the 15 most common aches, pains, and health complaints.

    Is the economy beating you up? It’s time to get creative. Next time you have an ache or pain, forget about a costly trip to the drugstore and test-drive some of your grandmother’s remedies instead. It’ll save money and be gentler on your body and the environment. Recessionistas (and gents), welcome to the DIY medicine cabinet.

    1. Stop Bleeding

    You’d think it would burn, but a sprinkle of cayenne pepper on a cut will quickly stop the bleeding and actually relieve the pain.

    2. Toothache

    There’s nothing so bad as the shooting pain of a toothache. You don’t want to ignore a tooth problem, because an infection that close to your brain can be extremely dangerous if it spreads. But in order to reduce swelling and pain while you wait for a dentist appointment, try putting a few drops of clove oil on your tooth and gums, and bite down on a smashed piece of garlic (which has excellent antibacterial properties). This has always worked for me.

    3. Rashes and Allergies

    Prescription and OTC antihistamines can cause some serious side effects. Before you head for the strong stuff, try green tea, which contains compounds with antihistamine properties. You’ll need to drink 2-3 cups a day to get the full effect.

    4. Athlete’s Foot

    It’s a foot fungus, and it stinks. Air those piggies, then soak them in salty water, wash them with garlic juice, or soak them with diluted white or apple cider vinegar. All of these things will help kill the fungus.

    But you have to be persistent, consistent, and diligent: No matter what treatment you use, do it a few times a day and stick with it until at least a week after you think the symptoms are gone! Fungus excels at hiding out and coming back when you least expect it.

    5. Acne and Sensitive Skin

    First, you really have to look at your lifestyle, because imbalances in your health can show up in your skin. But in the meantime, wash your face with oatmeal. It’s a gentle exfoliant and draws out oil and impurities.

    6. Ear Infections

    Ear infections can become quite serious and cause permanent damage, so please see a doctor if your ear ache has become severe.

    But if you feel like your infection is mild and at the beginning stages, put a few drops of garlic oil or white vinegar into your ear canal and lay down on the opposite side to let those drops do their work. Garlic and vinegar create an environment that won’t support the bacteria causing the infection. Repeat a few times a day until the symptoms disappear. (If your symptoms last longer than a few days, you should definitely see a doctor!)

    7. Sore Muscles and Bruises

    After a hard afternoon of rowing with a friend, I resigned myself to a few days of burning muscles and soreness. But my friend saved the day with a tube of arnica cream. He rubbed it on my shoulders and voila, instant relief and absolutely no aches the next day. The humble arnica flower makes an incredible cream that no medicine cabinet should be without. Use it immediately to speed up the healing of bruises, sprains, sore muscles, and other general aches.

    8. Flatulence

    Some foods, like beans and raw veggies, are more likely to cause gas, but if you find flatulence to be too common of an occurrence, try taking a digestive enzyme with your meals. You can find these at any health food store.

    In the meantime, make use of digestive spices such as ginger, anise, peppermint, coriander, and dill. You can make tea with these ingredients or incorporate them into your food.

    9. Dandruff

    Have you looked at the ingredients in dandruff shampoo? It seems like they contain almost everything in the Toxic Ingredients You Must Avoid list. Better to try something natural first before resorting to chemicals. Many people swear by rubbing aloe vera gel onto the scalp (leave it on for 20 minutes than rinse it out). This will certainly help with dry, itchy scalp.

    Another remedy is a rinse with apple cider vinegar. Try these remedies a few times before deciding if they work for you. Even dandruff shampoo requires regular use to see results, so give the natural stuff a chance!

    10. Headache and Migraine

    Try rubbing peppermint or lavender oil on your temples and the base of your neck; sniffing these oils may also help.

    Rub a fresh cut lemon or lime on your forehead. Feverfew is a good herbal remedy for headaches.

    Have a little caffeine by way of green tea, and don’t forget to use an ice pack for 20 minutes to dull the throbbing.

    11. Indigestion and Heartburn

    It almost goes without saying – but consider why you’re getting heartburn in the first place. Did you overeat? Too much grease or spicy food? Eating late at night? Scout out the cause and try to stop this before it happens. Then, put down the antacids.

    The belching, bloat, and heartburn caused by indigestion come about because you don’t have enough stomach acid to do the job right. A spoonful or two of apple cider vinegar will help break down the excess food that is causing you trouble and bring your stomach back to balance.

    12. Constipation

    First, drink more water and eat more fruit and salads. You’re backed up for a reason and taking lots of laxatives is not the answer. Meanwhile, drinking a few teaspoons of olive oil mixed with a bit of orange or (diluted) lemon juice can help things get moving.

    Another surefire remedy is 1/4 teaspoon of epsom salts drunk in 1/2 a glass of water. Sometimes calorie restriction or avoidance of healthy fats (such as the good fats found in fish, nuts, and avocados) can worsen constipation.

    And though it’s counterintuitive, some people relieve their constipation by actually cutting back on grain consumption! True, grains contain fiber, but some people don’t digest grains very well. Other causes of constipation include stress, depression, inactivity, and nutritional deficiencies. If your constipation is chronic, it may be a sign of a more serious problem, so please seek medical advice and adjust your lifestyle.

    13. Sore Throat

    Sore, scratchy throats are usually a sign of a cold or flu coming on, so you don’t want to ignore this symptom, but you can relieve the pain by gargling with warm salt water a few times a day and then drinking a soothing honey-lemon tea.

    14. Burns

    So you bumped up against the stove again? Ouch. Rinse first with cold water, but then immediately apply aloe vera gel to the burn.

    For those of us who don’t have aloe in the house, slice a potato and rub its cool, soothing juices all over the burn.

    And honey, with its antibacterial properties, is also good topical ointment. If you can catch the burn immediately, mustard is also reportedly a great salve.

    15. Nausea

    The classic cure for nausea or carsickness is ginger tea or candied ginger. You can chew on the stuff raw, if you like, but it’s so spicy and strong it might just make you feel worse.

    Sniffing real peppermint or lavender oil can also help.

    Give some of these remedies a try – and share your own tried-and-true treatments, too.

  • What airlines really charge...

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

    1. Delta-Passengers flying Delta pay an average of $24 in extra fees, more than twice what passengers on United and Continental pay and quadruple the amount of people flying Southwest. The first checked bag costs $25 and the second costs $35. Changing your ticket costs $150 and changing a flight that was booked with frequent flier miles will also cost you $150. The airline is also planning to charge as much as $160 extra for special seats in economy class on long distance flights. The specialty: they recline 50% farther back.

    2. Northwest Airlines--Northwest charges for the first piece of luggage ($15) and as much as $100 for redeeming frequent flier miles.

    3. US Airways-The airline might charge as much as $25 for the first piece of luggage, $55 for the second and $100 for the third. If that's not enough, the airline is now charging $90 extra for checked baggage that is overweight by 50-70 pounds, and $175 extra for bags overweight by more than 70 pounds. On top of all that, US Airways can charge anywhere from $25 to $75 to redeem frequent flier miles and $150 to make changes to your flight.

    4. American Airlines--American Airlines charges as much as $39 more to sit in one of the first few rows--in coach.

    5. Alaska Airlines--Alaska Airlines charges $15 for the first piece of checked luggage and $25 for the second, as well as a $100 reservation change fee, a $15 fee for booking a reservation at the ticket counter and a $100 fee for bringing a pet on board (each way).

    6. Continental Airlines--Continental officially merged with United Airlines to become the world's largest airline. But the deal won't help passengers. They're ending up paying the same amount in fees as United.

    7. United Airlines--United is famous for poor customer service and luggage issues, but that doesn't stop them from charging a lot of extra fees. Passengers pay $25 for their first checked bag and $35 for the second checked bag, not to mention a $30 charge to redeem frequent flier miles.

    8. AirTran--AirTran is known for having some of the cheapest flights in the country, but the cost of those flights is low because of the extra fees. They include charging for both the first and second piece of checked luggage and ticket change fees.

    9. JetBlue--JetBlue charges fewer fees than most major airlines. The airline doesn't charge for the first checked bag, but will charge anywhere from $50-$100 for the second. JetBlue also charges a reservation change fee ($100) and has new fees like getting extra legroom for $10.

    10. Southwest Airlines--Southwest doesn't charge for checking the first two pieces of luggage or changing a reservation. The company also doesn't add fees like charging for legroom or snacks. They do charge for some things, including an optional $10 early bird check-in fee and sometimes for an extra seat if the passenger is overweight.

  • 20 new uses for Shampoo...who would've known

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

    20 NEW USES FOR-SHAMPOO!

    1. Donate your old shampoo to Clean the World to help fight acute respiratory infection and diarrheal disease due to lack of hygiene supplies.

    2. For a stuck zipper, put a drop of shampoo on a Q-tip and dab it onto the zipper. The shampoo will help the zipper to slide easily.

    3. Buff your shoes. In a pinch, you can revitalize leather shoes and purses by using a small amount of shampoo on a clean cloth. Rub into worn areas as you would shoe polish, and give it a buff. This also offers some protection from salt stains.

    4. Skip expensive soaps for hand-washing laundry, use just a drop or two of shampoo instead.

    5. Shampoo works well on laundry stains--treat the stain with a few drops of shampoo, rub them in, let soak, and then launder as usual.

    6. Help take off a sticky bandage. Let a few drops of shampoo soak through the adhesive part and the bandage should peel off without pain and sticking.

    7. In a pinch, shampoo can be used as a substitute for bubble bath.

    8. Shampoo (conditioner, too) works as a great substitute shaving cream. Lather up, shave away. Shampoo is much more nourishing/less drying than soap, which is what many women use on their legs.

    9. Harsh soap can dry out hands, but sometimes you need something strong for extra grime. Next time, try using shampoo as a hand cleanser. It tackles messes without drying out your skin. You can also just put it in your liquid soap dispenser for everyday use.

    10. Shampoo works well to remove body oil and gunk from combs and hairbrushes; comb out any loose hair and swish the comb/brush in some warm water and shampoo. Let it soak for a few minutes, then rinse well.

    11. You can clean houseplant leaves using a few drops of shampoo in a bowl of water; dip a towel in the solution, wring it out, and wipe away dust.

    12. For a quick touch up cleanse of tub, shower or sink, use some shampoo as a liquid cleaner. It rinses clean and makes chrome shine as well.

    13. To clean paint brushes use a few drops of shampoo and massage it through the bristles, then rinse well. (Never use extra hot water when washing paint brushes, it loosens the glue resulting in bristle loss!)

    14. Try shampoo on rug and carpet spills, dab a few drops on with some water and blot with a towel. Repeat until spill is gone.

    15. A few drops of shampoo rubbed onto the inside surface of a swimming mask (then rinsed) will prevent the mask from fogging up.

    16. Diluted shampoo can take the place of bubble soap for bubble-blowing wands.

    17. Car-washing suds! Add 1/4 cup shampoo to a pail of warm water and lather up the car as usual.

    18. Shampoo mixed with baking soda into a paste can be used to clean chrome on cars; rinse thoroughly and buff to shine.

    19. Loosen stuck nuts and bolts with a drop of shampoo. Let it seep into the threads and the bolt should loosen easily.

    20. Use shampoo to lubricate squeaky hinges.
