    Posted by Nikki Montgomery

    honey boo boo kimmelIf the opportunity ever arises please remind me of this video so I will pass on the interview. This is rediculous! It's not cute and it makes Mama June look like she has absolutely no control over her child. Perhaps she doesn't even in the bits of the show I've seen Honey Boo Boo Child runs that house! She's not a bad child just obnoxious which to some people is the same thing.

    Check out the video from her interview on KTLA TV: 

    And here is her interview on Jimmy Kimmel:

     And here's the second half of the interview:

  • Ugly doesn't describe these shoes!

    Posted by Nikki Montgomery

    scary beautiful shoesYou may call these ugly or painful, but the designers call them "Scary Beautiful Shoes." They are designed so that the heal looks to be in the front and your foot goes down the back pointed like in ballet shoes, then your shin is buckled in to rest along the top of the shoe so you can't straighten your knees! 

    If they make you think of Lady Gaga you wouldn't be wrong. They were actually sent to her almost as a dare. We'll see if they show up on the next awards show or music video.

    They are created by South African artist Leanie van der Vyver and Dutch shoe designer René van den Berg. They are not actually designed to be warn they are a commentary about today's impossible standards of beauty.

    Click here to read the meaning and idea behind these "Scary Beautiful Shoes." 

    To add to the message they hired a model to wear the shoes and walk in them. What the hell?! She walks like a zombie!  

    Do you think this is an accurate representation of the beauty standards of today?

  • Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher

    Posted by Nikki Montgomery

    These two movies came out right around the same time...they have different actors in them, but they're the same movie. I've seen both and enjoyed both. Niether ending surprised me, but it was the journey I enjoyed. I liked Friends With Benefits more though because Mila Kunis is awesome. See for yourself:  

    Now if you combined the two movies taking the male character from No Strings Attached with the female from Friends with Benefits you have the real life story of Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. The two claimed they were just friends, but now they're not shy about their PDA.

    I actually really like these two together they seem so natural and maybe it's because they were so great as Jackie and Kelso on That 70s Show. Mila has even talked about marrying Ashton. We'll see if he jumps on that idea now that Mila Kunis has been named the Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire magazine.

  • Christina Hedricks insulted by interview question

    Posted by Nikki Montgomery

    People make a big deal of Christina Hendricks' curves. You'd better be careful how you address them though as Austrailian fashion editor, Kate Waterhouse learned.

    After the interview, off camera, Hendricks reportedly said, "I think calling me full-figured is just rude."

  • DYI Pink Caviar Nails

    Posted by Nikki Montgomery

    I saw caviar nails on Pintrest and became obsessed! Unfortunately caviar nail polish sets cost $25! I decided that was too rich for my blood so set out on a mission to do it for $10.

    All you need is nail polish, in honor of breast cancer awareness month I chose Avon Breast Cancer Crusade Nailwear Pro Pink Power that I got for $2.99

    polish

    You will also need glass microbeads. I got a set of 6 different colors from Michaels craft store for $6.99. You should pick a bead color in the same hue as your nail polish.

    microbeads

    Put two coats of polish on your nails. Put a third coat on one nail at a time and sprinkle microbeads over wet polish. You'll need a dish to catch the beads. I used a square tupperware dish so it would be easier to pour the leftovers back into the bottle. Once all nails are coated with the beads put a coat of clear polish over the top to lock the beads.

    Pretty cool look. I can't wait to see how long it lasts and how hard it is to get off.

    Anyone else ever done caviar nails?

    FOLLOW UP ON CAVIAR NAILS

     

    After night one I learned some things about caviar nails.

    1. Don't do dishes. Soaking your hands in water loosens the beads.
    2. Don't give your baby a bath. Same problem as above.
    3. Just an observation you probably don't want to make hamburgers, meatloaf, or bread, anything that you make with your hands because the beads could fall off into the food. 
    4. Don't clean anything

    My left hand still looks good, but my right hand has a lot of bare spots. So my conclusion is that this is an awesome look for a night out, but certainly not a longterm manicure. I would've been really upset if I would've paid $25 for a set that only includes one polish color and one bead color. Instead I can use any of my own polishes and one of the six bead colors I got for only $6.99.

    breast cancerOctober is breast cancer awareness month and so many women forego a yearly mammogram due to lack of insurance or the ability to pay. The reality is that cancer doesn't just happen to those who can afford it and the earlier you catch it the better your chances of survival.

    My best friend was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer in August last year. It was a long hard battle, but she muddled through it for her family. She was only 32 years old so had it not been for feeling the lump she may not be here today. Her cancer was agressive so she needed to do the full range of treatment, chemo, double mastectomy, and radiation. She is now in remission. She just had her reconstructive surgery done last week. 

    Self breast exams are easy to forget, but shouldn't be. The National Breast Cancer Foundation suggests setting up a monthly reminder on your phone for your self exam.

    Women over 40 should have a yearly mammogram. There are programs in place for women who have no insurance or are unable to cover the costs themselves. Aspirus Womens health does screenings throughout the year you can check their website to see when and where you can find them. There are also programs set up for finanical assistance to those who need it through Marshfield Clinic. 

    During Breast Cancer Awarenss Month pick a day and get your whole office to wear pink then post a picture of your staff sporting pink on our Bryan and Nikki facebook page or you can email it to us at bryanandnikki@wdez.com and we'll post it for you.

  • Living above the influence

    Posted by Nikki Montgomery

    Taylor Glamour

    A beautiful Taylor Swift graces the cover of the November issue of Glamour Magazine. In the article she was asked about her song "Dear John" and the claims that it was about John Mayer after their brief fling in 2010. She denies the claim and when told that Mayer himself believes the song is about him she responded, "How presumptuous! I never disclose who my songs are about." When ABC's Cynthia McFadden, who interviewed Swift for the magazine, attempts to read Mayer's quotes, the country singer cuts her short. "No! I don't want to know, I don't want to know. I know it wasn't good, so I don't want to know. I put a high priority on staying happy, and I know what I can't handle. It's not that I'm this egomaniac and I don't want to hear anything negative, because I do keep myself in check. But I've never developed that thick a skin. So I just kind of live a life, and I let all the gossip live somewhere else. If you go too far down the rabbit hole of what people think about you, it can change everything about who you are."

    I love Taylor's ability to live above the influence of stardom, too many young starlets can't and end up like Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes.

    Regardless of whether or not you're a fan of her music you have to respect that she's a good role model for young girls.

  • Bosses discourage it, but most of us still do it, and it turns out the bosses are wrong

    Posted by Nikki Montgomery

    A new study by a Dutch researcher found that gossip and idle chatter at work brings coworkers together and makes them more cooperative.

    With that said you must keep your chit chat to a minimum because the study also shows that people who talk too much have fewer friends at work.

    It is important to keep in mind gossip simply means talking about someone who isn't there so it can be positive or negative. It is best to keep negative gossip to a minimum and you must be certain you can trust the person with whom you share this type of information.

    You should also keep the number of people you gossip with to a minimum because the more people you confide in the more untrustworthy you appear to the rest of the employees at the office.

    Do you gossip at work? Are you considered the office gossip? Do you think that gossip is an effective way to make your office more cohesive?
