Finding The Perfect New Years Eve Dress

When most people think of New Years Eve it is all about the best party or who you will share the first kiss of the new year with. But for others it is all about what they will be wearing. Most want to look great and grab a lot of attention, so finding the right dress that will dazzle is a must. Here are a few tips to help you get started; 1) Pick an ensemble that is fun, flirty and flattering 2) Don't overdo trends; try to stick to just one 3) shop in vintage stores; something old can always turn into something new again 4) add a pop of color to your outfit 5) throw in some sparkle 6) wear dressy flats; you do not always have to wear heels to feel dressed up. There are tons of flats with gems and made in satin fabric that can help save your feet on the dance floor. And the biggest tip of all is try to find something original. Remember that other party goers will be shopping at the same malls and stores as you and many will end up in the same attire. So be different and try some of your city's hottest boutiques that carry one of a kind pieces. Or contact me at to help you out.

The Dirty Laundry for December 8, 2010

The Dirty Laundry

T.I.says he's using his time behind bars, again, to become a "better man." Yesterday, the same day his new album, "No Mercy" came out. Here's the letter:

"So here it is...NO MERCY, the most honest and intimate installment of my life story as promised. Hope y'all enjoy it and it lives up to the very high standards I've set for myself or anyone who's to be considered one of the best. I must admit it takes a lot to go through as much as I have and still keep the love in your heart and in your art. But at the end of the day, if that's what it takes to produce the music that keeps the world of hip-hop evolving on it's axis....Then even the lowest of the lows of my life was all worth it. Thanks again for your prayers, your time and attention. And remember....It does'nt matter how long it'll be before the next time you see me. What matters is that I'll be a better man before that time comes. The longer I sit, the smarter I get.

I'd like to give a vey special thank you to all the fans who've been writing me and lifting my spirits everyday. I read all of them. Although I would never be able to write you all back...I'd like to list as many of you individualy as i can and thank the others collectively. It's a relief to know that there still are people who see a man with a life and not just another headline in the news. Most of you sound very concerned and optimistic at the same time about my situation. Let me assure you all that I am deffenitely keeping my head up. I don't consider myself done by far. Also many of you are convinced as I am that God has a plan for me that he's preparing me for. How do you tell God Almighty that all you wanna do is LIVE LIFE ??? What if all you wanna do is be a father to your kids, a husband to your wife, and son to your mother while providing insightful motivation through music and lending a helping hand when posible to those who need it most.

Well guys...That's the topic of discussion between me and the MOST HIGH at the moment. I'll keep you posted on how it turns out. Who knows maybe you can look foward to hearing the dialogue between us set to music on the next album...which I'll be announcing the official title to sooner than later. But until then, thanks again for all your understanding, love and support. Y'all take it light and be eazy."
- Love King.
