chanel no. 5 slummed it in jersey at one point

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

A new book is out revealing the secrets of Chanel’s most iconic fragrance No. 5 and one of them hits close to home.  According to the author of The Secret History of Chanel No. 5 the perfume used to be manufactured in New Jersey!  Thanks to World War II, Coco Chanel had no choice but to smuggle her materials across the Atlantic to Chanel No. 5′s temporary new home in Hoboken.

Once the war was over Coco, who called the whole ordeal “monstrous”, hightailed it back to France where production is still going on.

Kelly Osbourne was on hand at the Glamour Women of the Year awards to present an award to Constance McMillen, the teenager who was told she couldn’t take her girlfriend to prom or wear a tuxedo (and was sent to a FAKE prom by the PARENTS while her classmates convened elsewhere …the story still saddens and sickens me…)

When on stage, Kelly then told Constance, “F**k the prom—you’re dancing with me tonight!”

Nice.  Love it.  Love her.  Sober and fit Kelly is so much better.  Not to mention I’m really happy to see Constance being shown how much cooler things are outside of her shitty town of peers that are busy drinking  in their parents’ basements and shopping at the Walmart while she’s busy going to REAL parties and and being commended for taking a stand for herself.  I’d also like to add that I think Constance looked awesome in her tux.

In honor of Heather on her birthday …and my favorite person to eat too much and then complain about how I’ve gained weight with as if it was the birthday burger diet’s fault. *MUAH*

the twinkie diet!

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

GROSS.  Imagine instead of eating lean meat, fresh fruit, and vegetables to lose weight you had to eat a cream filled sponge!  Well, as much as I DO NOT recommend this approach to losing weight, it worked for this guy (not that the “diet” would have held up for very long).

For 10 weeks, Mark Haub, a professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University, ate one of those sugar sponges tasty treats every three hours, instead of meals and lost 27 pounds in 2 months!

The premise of his “convenience store” diet is that pure calorie counting is what matters most, as opposed to nutritional value.  A man of the professor’s pre-diet size usually consumes about 2,600 calories, but he limited himself to less then 1,800 and luckily for his body, his theory has appeared to hold up.  However, for all you junk food junkies out there waiting for an excuse to start popping nothing but Pringles, Haub took a multi-vitamin, protein shakes, and ate a can of vegetables a day on top of his junk food diet.

As far as endorsing his diet, we won’t be seeing the professor of human nutrition on any late night infomercials any time soon, as he says:

“I’m not geared to say this is a good thing to do. I’m stuck in the middle. I guess that’s the frustrating part. I can’t give a concrete answer. There’s not enough information to do that.”

The good news is that counting calories COUNTS! Otherwise …ew, just …ew.  Find another food item to count calories with.
