Cringe-Worthy Video Shows What NOT To Do When You Match Your Colleague
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Some people can laugh it off when they show up to work wearing the same outfit as their colleague. Australian news anchor Amber Sherlock, it appears, is not one of those people. Sherlock (center) and co-anchor Julie Snook (left) appeared on air with psychologist Sandy Rea (right) for a segment for 9 News Wednesday, in which it became clear as the three appeared on camera that they were all wearing what appeared to be the color white.   A visibly annoyed Sherlock demands that Snook put on a jacket. After Snook explains that she had been busy and forgot, Sherlock laments that she told her to do it “two hours ago.”  Snook, who clarified that her dress was actually blue, even offered to sit out of the segment entirely.  Eventually the camera cuts out and Snook reappears in a black jacket, likely brought over by one of the producers. Snook and Sherlock released a joint statement following the incident, in which Sherlock said she “probably overreacted” and cr ...

Huffington Post - about 2 months
Embed from Getty Images In his book "Mystic's Musings", Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev has warned women to never wear any metal rings on their thumbs as it "will lead to attracting occult forms". Sadhguru, a name which means uneducated guru, is an Enlightened Yogi, Mystic, Humanitarian, New York Times Bestselling Author, and more than likely a genius. So as much as I am a long term fan of fashion guru and thumb ring advocate, Rachel Zoe, (I love receiving her quarterly Box of Style and fashion advice via The Zoe Report) I am going to have to draw the line here. Rachel is even quoted as saying "why are you asking me if I've read a book". I've read the book, Rachel, it's now up to you to stop just accessorising with gay abandon and enlighten your fashion followers! Sadhguru and Rachel Zoe both share an affinity for snake jewelry. Spiritual seekers and Isha meditators can buy copper snake rings from Isha Shoppe USA to be worn only on the r ...

The Most Influential Celebrity Baby Names Of 2015
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Some of most popular names in the U.S. today prove that celebrities influence baby name trends. Nicole Richie’s Harlow, Gwen Stefani’s Kingston, and half of the names chosen by the Jolie-Pitts have risen in popularity thanks to famous families. High profile birth announcements can take an already rising name and put it on more parents' short lists, like Channing Tatum’s Everly. Or it can transform an obscure choice, like Marlowe, into everyone’s new favorite. As 2015 draws to a close, Nameberry takes a look at the celebrity baby name choices likely to influence baby naming in 2016 and beyond. Charlotte One of biggest celebrity stories of 2015 was the birth of Her Royal Highness, Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge. Just days after Charlotte’s birth was announced, we learned that the name had cracked the U.S. top 10. It’s a classic choice, not a trendy one, but it’s still a name to watch in 2016.

Huffington Post - about 1 year
Where is the last place you would ever expect to find "Transparent" star Gaby Hoffmann? If your answer was something along the lines of, "at Michael Jackson's ranch with Nicole Richie, Kim Kardashian and a pair of chimps," we've got news for you: your imagination is reality. When Hoffmann dropped by HuffPost Live on Tuesday to chat about the second season of her Amazon hit, host Alex Miranda showed the actress a photo from the early '90s that depicts a duck-faced quintet of preteen girls, including Hoffmann, Kardashian and Richie. The picture was passed around online after Kardashian posted it to her website in 2011, but watching Hoffmann tell the story of that day is a treat all its own. "We weren't friends," she said of her famous-in-the-future posse. "This is a totally strange, bizarre, anomalous moment." Hoffmann explained that as a kid, she moved for two years from New York to Los Angeles, where she attended a "crazy private school" and lived "an alternate ...
