Third school stab attack in China


A jobless knife-wielding man attacked and injured 29 young children and three adults at a kindergarten in eastern China yesterday, in the third school stabbing frenzy in a month.

Five of the children were in a critical condition after the attack in the city of Taixing, according to Xinhua news agency. The alleged assailant, a 47-year-old man, was detained, the report said.

The man burst into a classroom with a 20-centimetre knife and started attacking the children, most of whom were four years old, Xinhua said. Two teachers and a security guard who tried to stop him were also hurt. Various websites said there had been reports of up to four deaths, but an official said it had so far received no such information.

She also goes on to say "I hope you can accept my sincere apology." and "Please contact me if you wish to discuss on the phone or in person."

Is she looking for a golden forgiveness star for writing this? Maybe she believes that they will meet and hug it out and talk about how horrible of a lover Jesse James is over a nice cup of tea and biscuits. Unbelievable!

Walmart is definitely the first place I'd go right from the hospital. You know, because it's just so sanitary. I'm shocked they aren't connected!

I'm sorry lobster claw shoes are friggin ugly.



As talented as some fashion designers are, some should just stick to designing clothing lines and stay far away from shoe design. Case in point- Alexander McQueen. While he was extremely talented there is no reason why he was allowed to design and profit from a terrible shoe line that is being sold... ever.


I mean really? Ugh!





Well this makes sense

Spongebob and the 7 deadly sins?

So while on a walk to the grocery store the other day my boyfriend and I got to talking about the philosophies of Spongebob and he informed me that the creator based all of the characters of the cartoon on the 7 deadly sins.


Here is the breakdown:





Lust





  Sloth




Wrath 



Gluttony




       Envy 


Greed




Pride

That's right, the cute giggly sponge is lustful

Funny 4/20

Quick Spring Make-Up Looks

Just because we are moms and feel exhausted doesn't mean we have to look exhausted! While it is not necessarily important to put on an entire face of make-up to take junior to the park or to walk to the grocery store, we can still maintain a fresh spring look that keeps us looking and feeling up beat.Here are a few make-up trends and tips to enhance your spring looks.

Use body Shimmer.
While we are not 16 years old anymore a soft body shimmer will give us an overall glow when bounced off the suns rays. Dream Angels Heavenly™ Shimmering Hair & Body Spray- $10
 
 


Lavish up your lashes.
A nice dark mascara can make even the most tired eyes glow. The best solution is to use a small brush and to make sure your lashes are not clumped together but spread out.
 
Nude lip gloss. 
While we all are guilty of kissing our children profusely there is no reason why they need to be coated in red lip marks. By using a nude lip gloss not only do you make your lips pop, but  mommy kisses can be wiped away effortlessly.
Wear bright lipstick.
If you are going to go lipstick go bold! Coral and fuchsia lipsticks are the lip trend this spring.Sephora has a huge assortment of brightly colored lipsticks at reasonable prices.


Brighten your eyebrows.
Apply a thin line of a light eyeshadow right below the brow of your eyebrows. This will not only increase your arches but adds more interest in your eyebrows then the sleepy eyes below.

Watermelon Martini


Yippee spring's here! Leaves are growing, flowers are blooming and watermelon is almost in season! Here is a recipe to satisfy your watermelon cravings!

 Ingredients:
  • 1/4 seedless watermelon
  • 1 tray ice
  • 1/2 cup vodka
Directions:
  •  Mix together and blend.
 
Can't get much easier than that right?! Enjoy! 

Stretch marks! Can't live with em, can't live without em. Or can we?


 Now that it's getting warm out it's about time to break out the shorts and bathing suits, but who wants to wear a two piece if you still have those dreaded stretch marks? 'Not I' said the blog writer! So how do we get rid of these god awful pregnancy war scars without breaking the bank on laser surgery or hundred dollar cremes? Here are some great marks-be-gone solutions that other moms have recommended!




Tummy Butter by Palmers is one solution that moms have been raving about. Not only is it easy to find (at almost all Walgreens or drugstores) but it won't break the bank costing about $8.





While Bella Bee Tummy Honey Cream is best to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy, it does help decrease the marks post pregnancy as well and costs around $20.




 

Spoiled Mama Cocoa Butter is a big of tof both expecting post delivery moms. All of the ingredients are natural and produce collagen that helps to tighten stretch marks, prevent new ones and works well on C-section scars!

While it is a little more than the other products (ranging about $28) you can't beat natural ingredients!






Castor oil is a age old remedy for a multitude of things, from hair growth, laxative, inducing labor and you guessed it- to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Apparently the best remedy is to apply a layer of castor oil on your stomach, cover the area with saran wrap and then apply heat for 20 minutes. Do this routine everyday for a week and you should see results! Best part? This super oil is typically only $4!





While each creme is said to maintain some affect on stretch marks it ultimately depends on the severity of the scar as well as the consistency of the applications. Considering that every woman is unique there is no real guarantee on the healing time frames but with bathing suit season just around the corner what do you have to lose?

Boys vs Girl clothing- Girls win


So I always wanted to have a little boy. I never even knew what I'd name a girl if I had one so when the doctor told me I was having a boy at my 20 week sonogram I was thrilled! That is until I had to start looking for clothes for him. Pink shirts, pink pants, flowers, frills and polka dots...and one rack of "Moms Lil Prince". Awesome. And the madness doesn't stop there. Come Christmas and holiday time while the girls section was littered with red dresses and fancy garb, the boys "section" had two argyle sweaters and a one-piece that said "My 1st X-Mas". Ohhh all the choices!!!

There are always the neutral clothes. You know the gender friendly outfits that are made for baby eunuchs. Granted, the outfits are usually pretty cute and come in pretty greens and browns, but for a baby like mine whom people always mistake for a girl because of his hair these outfits would only exacerbate the issue.
So why exactly IS it so hard to find clothes for boys? Am I the only one that has noticed this? Considering my son was born with perfect eyebrows and beautiful long and curly hair, maybe he can get away with a cute lil shirt with a pink flower on it.

Jennifer Aniston is having a baby!


While waiting in line in the grocery store tonight I just so happened to peep the new US magazine that hit the shelves and what does it show? A glowing Jennifer Aniston holding what is claiming to be a baby bump!

Everyone has noticed the chemistry between her and actor Gerard Butler (hubba hubba) since the filming of their movie The Bounty Hunter, especially the one where he's holding her butt like a bowling ball (see below!).


But what do you think? Is she actually pregnant? Take our poll!

Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon exposed her husbands infidelity...to his co-workers!

It seems that there is always some sad news about some poor chap that has gotten caught being unfaithful to their wife, and now Garcelle is part of this unlucky list. Though she is not going down easy or quietly for that matter. She publicly announced that her husband, Tiki Barber, and father of her twin boys has been having a 5 year affair and promptly announced it all over his companies email!

She wrote: "I found out today that MY husband of almost 9 yrs has been having an affair for 5 yrs with some slut in Chicago. I am devastated!!!! And I have been duped!! Our boys don't deserve this!"

Spring is here! Time to dine alfresco

 

Finally! Granted "April showers bring May flowers" I'll take rain over snow any day. There is just something about the sweet after smell of the rain on the grass and the concrete that drives my senses wild! Today we took the kids for a nice long walk (from 10am to about 6pm...yes, exhausting!) and got to meet other puppies in the neighborhood as well as seeing so many moms strolling the parks and streets with their kids. 

On this nice 73 degree day we were hoping to find a place we could eat that was outside and that allowed puppies on the patio. While there were many places that had outdoor seating, we had a hard time finding a place that was dog friendly. The best many could offer was to have Bailey sitting on the outskirts of the patio but the limber puppy that she is she fits right through the bars every time. So what's a hungry family to do? We went to Google! 

On my boyfriends Android phone we were able to simply type in the words "dog friendly restaurants" and it not only found some restaurants, it located a few only some short yards away! 

We were able to dine happily at a restaurant that not only seated us quickly but gave us a water dish for Bailey! 

I heart Google.
