Cate Blanchett to play Lucille Ball

After being on the road for quite a while these past few weeks; today I finally had time to catch up with life lol. While surfing through the newsfeed on my Facebook page I found that two time Oscar winning actress Cate Blanchett has been chosen to play Lucille Ball in an upcoming biopic of the famous comedienne. When I found out I couldn’t tell you how excited I was. Being such a Lucy freak, pretty much knowing everything she does before she does it, I am beyond excited for this movie to come. I cannot wait to see what Cate brings to the table and how the movie wil showcase the life, career & relationships of my favorite lady Lucille Ball! Break a leg Cate! I Love Lucy

Millinery at its Finest

Millenary-by-Heather-McDowall-351-400x580

By Lisa Gal

Sometimes I stumble across something that I am shocked I didn’t know, like what millinery is. Do you know? Well, it is the designing and manufacturing of hats! Heather McDowall is a true milliner. From her studio in Sydney Australia she creates true masterpieces. While most designs are for race wear or bridal wear, her pieces can also be seen on runways in Australia. All pieces are handmade by Heather and can be custom designed to match your outfit. Her extravagant copper and silver leaf headbands from the Warrior Princess line are valued at $400. These Millinery by Heather McDowall headbands will soon grace the Hollywood Swag Bags being gifted to the 2015 Emmy Nominees staying at the Four Seasons Hotel.

Step 3: Take the remaining pieces of hair left in the previous step and create a braid on either side of the face. Once complete, bring the braid to the opposite side of the face and secure above the ear with bobby pins. Repeat with remaining hair on other side of the face; creating a full braid crown. Apply Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Crystal Shine & Hold Laminating Shine Hair Spray to secure the look.
