Star Jones Divorce!!! Another Charade is over

Star Jones has reportedly filed for divorce from husband of three-and-a-half years Al Reynolds.

The filing took place on March 26 in New York Supreme Court in Manhattan. Starlet M. Jones versus Al S. Reynolds was marked as an “Uncontested Matrimonial” case by the court and the records were sealed.

Says Star in a just-released statement: “Several years ago I made an error in judgment by inviting the media into the most intimate area of my life. A month ago I filed for divorce. The dissolution of a marriage is a difficult time in anyone’s life that requires privacy with one’s thoughts. I have committed myself to handling this situation with dignity and grace and look forward to emerging from this period as a stronger and wiser woman.”

Designer Profile - Miatta-MiMi. Shop Boutique Mix

In September 2004, I took a long vacation to Capetown, South Africa, where Miatta-MiMi and Boutique Mix were born!!!!! As I lay on the beach sipping cocktails and designing my first bracelet, I realized “this is what I should be doing.” I spent most of my vacation making jewelry, gift-baskets, shopping for unique items and writing up my business plan - drawing from years of hoping, dreaming and following fashion. I am a huge fan of all things hand-made, and Boutique Mix carries both hand-made and non-handmade unique items from around the world.

I am blessed with the good fortune of combining my great love of travel with my passion for fashion. Each time I travel I personally select items for Boutique Mix that showcase the culture, creativity and style of local and international designers around the world. I make my own jewelry under the Miatta-MiMi label. Each Miatta-MiMi design piece has its own unique story, and is made from beads and other accessories hand-picked during my travels. My fashion style can be described at best as bold, funky, colorful and sassy. Miatta-MiMi reflects that bold, sassy, funky, eclectic and fabulous look that screams "I am ME"!!!

5 Signs She Wants to Date You By Alan Goldsher

Excerpted from Does she want to date you? By Alan Goldsher

Guys can be kinda dumb.

I’m not talking kinda dumb in a low-IQ kind of way—remember Ken “Mr. Jeopardy” Jennings? Last time we checked, he was a guy—and clearly not unintelligent. But in terms of figuring out how to comprehend a woman’s feelings about us when we’re trying to make the leap from “friends” to “friends who kiss,” forget about it. This is especially true for guys who’ve been burned in the past (and who hasn’t been?) who are wary about rejection. Maybe we’re not totally illiterate, but we often have a difficult time reading signals. So here, a few signs she’s interested—consider them your green light to get closer.

The “let’s laugh” signal
Distinctly not-dumb guy David Wygant, author of Always Talk To Strangers, is an excellent signal-reader. “If she makes you feel like a stand-up comedian, even though you’re not that funny, she wants to take it to the next level,” says Wygant. Similarly, Rosemarie of White Plains, New York, shares, “If I’m interested in a guy, I kind of tease him—I try to get a funny, bantering chat going. It shows that I’m interested in playing a bit of a cat-and-mouse game, you know? I’ll say something like, ‘I think you’re just making that up,’ or ‘Honestly now, has that line worked?’ but I say it with a big smile and eye contact so he knows I’m just joking.”

The tell-tale time sign
If you are friends with a woman and sometimes wonder if there might be more there, take heed of when she wants to hang out with you. If she wants to meet you for a quick workday lunch, chances are she doesn’t fancy you in the way you might hope. But if she asks you to meet her for a drink in the evening or to see a movie with her on a Saturday at 8 p.m., she may be casting you in more of a boyfriend role. Says Shelly of San Diego: “I work with a lot of guys and admit to getting crushes on co-workers from time to time. I’ll chat them up about new movies I want to see, and if one I’m interested in asks me out, I do what I can to make it at night on a weekend. That makes it so easy to grab a drink or food afterward and get to know each other on a more personal level.”

The body language clues
OK, so the odds of a woman reaching out to hold your hand while you’re flirting with her are slim to none. So how does she use her body to show you she’s interested? Jess from New York believes a woman’s gestures will send you the message. “Her body language will give her away—if a woman leans in toward a guy while he’s talking, mimics his body language, and maybe sneaks in a subtle touch here or there, these are pretty good signs that she’s into him. Obviously, he should get her phone number and actually call.”

And how does a guy know if a woman isn’t interested? “If she is looking around the room while he’s talking to her and crossing her arms across her chest,” says Jess, “she’s probably not that interested. Also, if she tells the guy that he would be perfect for her sister or she suddenly brings up the fact that she’s been talking to her ex-boyfriend, there’s probably not a spark there.” The guy should just move on to a woman who is worth his time or possibly take the uninterested woman up on her sister offer.

The look of “I like you”
A guy should also know what kind of eye contact is waving him in. Direct eye contact that lasts more than a couple of seconds is a sign of interest, say the experts. And if a woman looks from your eyes to your mouth, well, things are in very, very good shape. “I don’t know if it’s conscious or not, but when I like a guy, I find my gaze wanders from his eyes to his mouth,” says Moira of St. Louis. “It’s definitely a seduction move; it lets him know that I’m thinking about what it would be like to kiss him.” Gentleman, if you’re getting that signal, this is another time you want to go ahead and get that phone number.

Taking the next step
Once we men realize she “likes us, likes us,” our minds are oftentimes so blown that we have no idea how to proceed. Fortunately, Wygant does: “Once she gives you the hints, you need to close the deal. Ask her to talk to you away from her friends or call her up on the phone and say, ‘You know what? I want to take you out for a nice dinner—just the two of us.’”

What if the object of your affection is a woman you’ve known as a pal for a while? Over dinner, you have the talk, advises Wygant. “You say, ‘I’d really like to become more than friends. I’d like to start dating you. What do you think of that?’ At this point, she’s given you every single sign that this is the conversation she’s been dreaming about, and of course the answer is going to be yes.”

So it all really boils down to a two-pronged plan: Pay attention and take a chance. If you focus your energy on the woman in question rather than on yourself or your surroundings (which is what you should be doing anyway), you’ll pick up more than you ever thought you could have. And if you disregard the very obvious signs — the laughing, the touching, the eye contact — and you don’t go for it, well then, then you are kinda dumb.

Rumor Has it.........Kanye West and His Fiance (Alexis Phifer) Call it Quits

Kanye and his fiance have allegedly called off their charade, ahem, i mean, engagement.

Courtsey of BET---"Reports are circulating that Kanye West and his fiance, Alexis Phifer, have called off their engagement. Reps for Kanye have not yet confirmed the breakup, but sources say that it was Kanye who decided that things weren’t working out. Kanye and Alexis were engaged back in August of 2006, not long after the rapper’s much publicized break-up with an MTV employee, Brooke Crittendon. Maybe Kanye’s looking for the celebrity chick…"

Clutch Your Wardrobe - Accessory Wardrobe Essentials

Every Accessory Wardrobe needs 10 staple items. The First item is the Clutch. Every fashionista has an "it" bag. The one trusted accessory that adds flavor to her outfit and puts that extra spring in her step.

For me, its the Clutch. No look is complete without it. The Clutch has always been the "it" bag for spring and summer, and for chicas like me, a year round staple. I keep them at work for those after-work happy hour events or spontaneous date plans. Who wants to carry their kitchen-sink hobo or briefcase to happy hour and/or a sassy date? Classic colors like black will match everything, while color adds spunk!!

Don't limit your fabulous clutch to night outings only. Clutches work well in the daytime too. Classic black (with metallic touches) work well for night outings, adding more glamour and glitz. Color works anytime. Choose something that reflects your style, but don't be afraid to step out of your fashion box. They're fun accessories. Indulge and have fun!!!! Don't be bashful - Be Colorful!
