Do it the sporty way
Athletes are not often fashionistas, we know that. But for you fashionistas, it's time to be half an athlete and half a fashion freak. That's what one of the big spring trends are about -Sporty fashion! The spring collections 2010 has shown us clothes inspired by tennis, basket ball, american football, skating, surfing and alot more and sports just keep influence designers in a good way. Big colorful patterns, sweat pants, loose tops and cool jackets will make you look both a bit sporty and chic at the same time this spring. And who said high heels wasen't sporty? On the runway, anything works!
Designers to be inspired by for this trend is mainly Pucci (Who's very know for sporty but yet fashionable clothes), Hermès (Who made alot of tennis inspired items this season), Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Alexander Wang among others. To get the very perfect sporty look, the accesories are a big deal. Small colorful clutches and leather fringed totes are bags to go for. Sweat bands were allso seen on the runways. Don't forget to get inspired by the 80's, flashdance, neon colors, great beats and dance moves! If you're already a sporty girl, this look will -hopefully- fit you like a glove!
Now how to pull it off in your everyday life?
Start with a pair of pants, or skirt (Of course depending on the temperature outside!) Go for bold colors like purple and bright blue OR go for the more sophisticated looks with either black and white or beige sheer garmints. If you choose to wear pants with alot of pattern it's better to go for a one colored top. Choose a big loose fitted short sleeved shirt or top if wearing tight pants and vice versa. The trick is to find the right balans in your outfits. If you feel like wearing a dress go for a pretty tight one with a bold pattern and even long sleeves, like the Pucci one to the right.
As I said before, why wouldn't high heels be sporty? High heeled sandals are way hot this spring, of course whenever the wheater allows you to wear them. Blue, brown or black, go for quite simple yet high sandals. Never forget your clutch or bag though! Match your clutch/tote/bag with your shoes and not with your outfit, you'll look way more trendy! If you really feel like going for the 'tennis' look, use a headband! Hèrmes and Lacoste showed us some great ones this spring.
Don't forget the leather
Tight black leather pants, either short or long are allso a trend that goes the sporty way. Match them with a big basketball shirt or a sheer allmost see-through top.
Work that face
To really complete your look use bold colored eyeshadows and blushes. It's not about blending in, it's about being chic, sporty and standing out! Let your lips still be natural though, you still don't want it to be too much, right? Now just one more thing, don't ever forget the shades!

It's no mystery that I have explained in the past, that there is one thing I want to be remembered for on Stardoll - and, that's my writing. Which brings me right to the point. I have completed my article for the upcoming issue of Eternity Magazine. I personally think that it consists of some of my best work. I also think that it is quite controversial, however, it does not relate to everyone. If it does cause a stir, I know that I wrote it for a reason - with reason, so obviously I will be able to back myself up.
Until next time, Tyler

Judy was born in 1922 in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. The roaring twenties provided fame to many hopefuls and Hollywood was pumping out movies right and left. Judy's parents dreamed that their three daughters would find fame, so they packed up and moved to California. However, it was only Judy who succeeded when the family got there. She quickly impressed the executives at MGM with her quick humor, and her mature voice. They cast her in many mini-musicals until she finally landed the role that would make her a legend in movie history. Despite the movie becoming very well-known, even today, when it premiered in 1939 it was a box-office flop, a fact that greatly discouraged Judy. This lack of self confidence, combined with the fact that her short stature showed any weight she gained, led her to troubles with MGM, pills, and depression: in the end this pathway ultimatley contributed to her demise.
Although she is most well-known for her role in The Wizard of Oz, Judy made many other movies under the MGM label including Meet Me in St. Louis, in which the song "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" premiered, and Easter Parade. When her health started to deteriorate she eventually stopped making films and focused on performing in concert at the London Palladium and the Palace. Her powerful voice commanded the audiences attention and rang throughout the huge halls of loving fans. It was said many times by an innumerable amount of fans that seeing Judy perform live was a breathtaking and memorable experience.
Despite having a tremendously successful career her personal life was rocky. Judy was married five times, divorced four times, and eventually had three children: Liza Minnelli, Lorna and Joey Luft. Throughout the years she struggled with her weight and became addicted to perscription pills. She was plagued by financial instability throughout her life and made atleast one suicide attempt. Her life of stress and depresssion, combined with her addiction, lead her to an early death: she passed away on June 22, 1969 at the young age of 47.
Although Judy struggled throughout her life she left a legacy that will not be soon forgotten. Her legacy continues with an upcoming movie of her life in the works and Anne Hathaway has been slated to portray Judy herself. Even today, decades after her death, Judy is still known for her tremendous voice, gorgeous looks and fantastic style. She had a special talent of making the world feel good, through both her personality and her voice, even when she was struggling. This trait is rare in today's world and it is the reason that even today Judy is remembered, honored, and loved.

Are you dying to do something you've never done before, or perhaps achieve your goals or fulfill your dreams, like becoming a successful artiste or making your mark in the fashion industry? Whether you're old or young, you can start achieving your goals in life one at a time, and live life healthily and happily, before you die.
1. Make a Dream Album
Instead of jotting down all your goals on paper, why not make a Dream Album? Collage over something, like a magazine, and write down all your goals in it, and include pictures to make it extra special. And you may include old photographs or hand-written letters which means a lot to you. Slowly start accomplishing them, one at a time, and the good thing about it is that you can always look back and smile at the pictures, and all the dreams you've wanted to fulfill.
2. Make a Goal Sheet
Another way is by making a sheet, and jot down all the things you want to accomplish, like getting into the fashion industry or to win a Grammy Award. Make little tick boxes next to them, and every time you've accomplished one of your goals, always tick it off the sheet. This is a good way to keep in track of what you've accomplished and what you want to accomplish.
3. Get Rid of your Bad Habits
If you have any bad habits, try to get rid of them, to get a better perspective on new things in life. Think of fun new things to do.
4. Start Afresh, and Leave The Past Behind
Don't ponder over the silly or the bad things you've done in the past. You sometimes have to start afresh when you're on the mission of accomplishing your goals; you have to move on. Get over a breakup, get over a minor thing you'd done: once you move forward, you will be that happy person again.
I hope these tips can inspire you to start fulfilling your dreams, being happy, and living life to its fullest.
"All the things that break you are the things that make you strong. You can't change the past, 'cause it's gone, and you just gonna move on."

Get healthy means get happy!
Everybody needs some cheering up this time of the year, I can tell you that. A long cold winter really takes it's toll. I will guide you on how to keep your good mood up and do your very best -at any time.
Stop the stress
No matter what you're stressed or worried about, there is ways to get out if it. A good advice is to make a list. Write down questions like 'What am I worried about?' 'Why am I stressed about it?' and finally 'How can I solve it?' .You always think someone else can solve your problems, but you will find out how good you are at doing it yourself! After all, you are the only one who really know how you feel. Being worried and stressed allso takes alot of your energy, taking control of your problems will make your everyday alot easier.
Sometimes objects in your real life symbolise your mind. Cleaning up in your room or even your bag, throwing out old things etcetera might be the same as cleaning up in your brain. You feel like you have alot on your mind and if your eyes have a clean space to look at, I can promise you it will be easier to think and focus on the right things.
Just do it
You always have things you have to do, but at the same time they're probably the most boring things you know. Think like this 'When is it hardest?''. Before, during or after you've done something you really don't want to do? Before, right? And if you just get to that point that you start it, no matter what it is (homeworks, cleaning etc.) you're more soon through it! Waiting and doing it later won't make anything better. Just do it.
Being up too late when school waits in the morning isn't very good. You will not only be very tired the next day but your brain won't work well either. You will not be able to achieve and work hard to reach things if your brain can't work properly. After a good nights sleep you allso become alot happier and alot of things will get easier!
Laugh and be healthy
Being with your friends and family, whatever makes you happy will not only bring you happiness but laughing and enjoying things gives you energy and you will feel better and shine more! Eating healthy and working out as well will sooner or later allso make your life brighter and you will live longer! To make the working out easier, set up a goal! Maybe you want to get in that lovely dress for the summer or look like the bomb in a bikini this summer? When working out, think about your goals and I promise you will get the energy to strive even harder!
Good luck with being and pursuing the very best you, this winter!

At the turn of the century ladies wore long skirts and all aimed to have a "Grecian bend" silhouette, mwhich was achieved by corseting the girl's waist and having high waistbands. The ladies wore elaborate, elegant evening gowns that created the image of a delicate, skinny, waist. They also wore huge hats full of flowers and other embellishments. Popular designers from the previous period continued producing collections, including Doucet, Paquin, the Callot Sisters, Redfern, and the house of Worth.
In the roaring twenties women started to show their knees, wear rolled stockings, and also wore dropped waistlines. Ldies cut their hair into bobs, and jackets and vests that were often fringed or beaded. The flapper style of fringed dresses and pinned short hair is iconic of this decade. New designers rose to fame, including Patou, Molyneux, and Le-Long. Schiparelli was introduced, while Lanvin and Poiret continued.
The wartime era brought in a money sensible wardrobe. Jackets and skirts were the rage in the 40's and women curled their hair to their shoulders for a relaxed look. Ladies started to wear wide legged pants for recreation, and long asymmetrical evening gowns at night. Lots of everyday dresses had large hop pockets that later became a fad in the 1950's. Crocodile accessories, platform shoes, and furs were everyday staples. Famous designers were Claire McCardell, Edith Head, Hardy Aimes, and Normal Norell.
The 60's brought the mod movement to fashion. The style of the decad went back to basic featuring simplistic shift dresses with hemlines between mid-thigh and knee length; girls also wore jacket and shirt ensembles. The icon Twiggy had a huge influence on the style and of this period. Space age fashion and tiny shorts were more daring fshion choices. Ladies often went out at night in skimpy dresses and high heels. Op Art inspired dresses were also in style. Desighners such as Yves St. Laurent and Pucci were key.
"Girls just wanna have fun" And boy was that true in the 80's. The decade was full of power suits and polyester. Ladies wore pantsuits, shoulder pads, and wild big hardos. Leggings, stilettos, bangles, and big dorr knocker earrings were iconic of young adults. Designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino, and John Galliano were the most important designers of the decade.
Does one of these looks call to you? Well go get the look! The store Decades in the starplaza can be the sourse of all the clothes neede for these looks. The vintage YSL dresses that the Twiggy doll wears are real dresses from the 60's. for the 80's, shop around! Rio can be a great source but almost anything goes! Top off your look with a vintage inspired hairstyle from the medoll styler, and go all out with decade inspired makeup! how groovy can you get?

Fake Tattoos -Chanel finally made it work
Remember putting on that silly temporary tattoos with weird colorful creatures on and some even looking like real bracelets when you were a kid? They were very childish but you liked them. Though, you grew up and you were sure you would never wear anything like it again. But the world just won't stop surprising you. One of the hottest accessories this spring is, to our big surprise, temporary tattoos! Not just from any fashion house, but Chanel did it, and made it work. Chanel now wants us to grace these lovely fake tattoos on not just our necks, but hands and legs too! Some are confused, some question it and some just think the idea is brilliant. And I agree, it's a bit confusing, you do want to question it, but after all, it's chanel and it is brilliant!
If nothing goes wrong, the tattoos will be able to purchase in february. The thing is, alot of budget stores will want to copy the idea. But according to me, the whole feeling of it will vanish. The exclusive vibe you get when seeing the Chanel tattoos will be gone, and the silly and childish look of it will return. And we'll think it is as silly as we thought the temporary tattoos we used as kids were. That's my thought. But if you've got the money, got the guts and got the style, there is nothing that can stop you from wearing the exclusive Chanel tattoos this spring! Allso alot other fashion houses and designers like Jean Paul Gautier and Rodarte used fake tattoos on their runway shows this spring, though Chanel stood out, and that's no wonder.

I'm Hannah (iluvmumble333), and I am one of the E trial workers! I couldn't believe it when Charlotte told me that I was one of the winners. To be honest, when I first saw the post, and what other people had posted as ideas, I didn't think I stood a chance! That's why I'm extremely thrilled to be a part of such a fantastic magazine! It has already proved to be extremely difficult, but I love a challenge. I never knew it took so many people and so much time to put together the virtual masterpiece that we read on worldpress.com. It's insane! If everyone has been working as hard as me (which i'm 110% sure of), this issue is going to be the best ever! I can't wait for everyone to read it!
Last of all, I would like to say thanks to Charlotte for having to deal with all my questions and keeping me updated on everything i had to do. :) I'll never forget this experience, and I have no doubt in my mind that I will walk away knowing 5,000 more things than I started with.
I hope you are all as excited as I am!
