     Baby showers are one of the most anticipated couples who are soon parents to be. Friends and families come over to give advices, gifts and celebrate the soon arrival of the new member of the family. The usual showers are done with gift giving, sharing of dedications, games, food sharing and any ideas that would make the event fun and worthwhile.

Shakira the famous singer we knew from hips don’t lie and her fiancĂ©, soccer star, Gerard Pique offered make their baby shower available all over the world and not for their kid to have lots of gifts when she or he comes out of this world, but to share lots of gifts to millions of parents who would like to give the best to their future children as well.

The well known singer as the United Nation’s goodwill ambassador, wanted to share blessings to those expectant parents as well, she and her husband opened their doors top receiving donations from 5 to 110 US dollars instead of receiving gifts for their baby boy. The couple even took a picture together in a black and white to be posted in the virtual baby shower to emphasize that this event will be showcased mainly to help people in the third world countries. The expectant parent’s reason for having this is clearly stated in Shakira’s statement during an interview “Every expectant parent around the world shares all the same hopes and dreams for their children that we do. Yet many don’t share the same opportunities. Together we know we can change that.” Shakira and Gerard Pique’s baby shower can be seen online through this website: The program aims to purchase mosquito nets to avoid malaria, peanut butter based paste that will improve the health of children there preventing them from being undernourished and other items that could be of good help to the people there.

The wows and oh-ohs in the 70th Golden Globe Awards

If someone is in the fashion or show business industry, it doesn’t follow that the person would be perfect in everything. Surely, some of our fashion specialists marked this date when they would be able to see the stars styled from head to toe as showcased by known artists worldwide.  This time, we have the worst and best dressers of all time picked from the 70th Golden Globe Awards that was held in California’s Beverly Hills Hotel. 

Artists came in with striking, bold suits and glamorous prints and hues in their long gowns that gave the audience a mix of awe and shock; some were made perfect but some were not. The greatest factor that made some actors and actresses the worst dressers of the evening is their wrong choice of material to use for their attire. Some wore loud colors and floral prints that looked really off on the red carpet. However those who were chosen as the best dressers were just simply amazing in their simple elegant but classy wardrobes. Here are simple peeks on how your favorite artists looked like:
Amanda Seyfried made all eyes glued on her with her white lace Givenchy, with complicated but adorable sheer panels, with light make-up making her look like an angel. Amy Adams, on the other hand, chose to wear an elegant nude strapless number from Marchesa and made her mermaid attire a little vintage with Marcel wave and Tiffany & Co. accessories. The hosts of the event, Amy Poehler came in with her daring Stella McCartney suit, while Tina came in a L’Wren Scott ankle-length dress and a Roger Vivier clutch. Anne Hathaway also left people in awe with her white strapless Chanel gown and her new hairdo. Emily Blunt looked fabulous in her Michael Kors gown and Claire Danes in her red Atelier Versace red gown. 

As several female celebrities were able to make it right with their attires that evening, the men definitely prepared themselves for the event. Bradley Cooper came in a black Tom Ford tux and accessorized with a bow tie. George Clooney showed off in his classic suit, Leonardo di Caprio arrived in a simple suit and Robert Pattinson in Gucci’s ‘Signoria’ tuxedo, though these men went simple but they sure looked outstanding. If there are best dressers there are also worst dressers, here are the list of your most awaited: Sienna Miller looked like she’s attending a flower festival in her Erdem dress together with Ariel Winter in Valentino and Lucy Liu in her Carolina Herrera dress, Jessica Chastain looked fatter in her Calvin Klein dress and worst of all is Halle Berry as she subtly proved that prints are not a reliable all-event fashion choice because of her loud dress that looked more of an inappropriate show off in the red carpet.

Whether they wowed or oh-oh-ed the audience in this 70th Golden globe awards, they are still the artists you adored and loved. Why not give suggestions for your favorites as early as now on how they would look at their best for the next awards night.

Could there be a different ending for Cox and Arquette?

Some relationships are just not meant to end with a “Happy ever after”. Today people rush into marriage, when they get into a relationship and feel that it might work between the two of them they commit themselves to being married without really trying to think of what lies ahead.
Here in the United States divorce has been rampant most especially with big celebs, first because they have resources to do so and second they don’t have time for each other anymore. Things just don’t work the way they were when couples finally exchange their vows and see the real person they are dealing with. However, these bitter endings rarely come to sweet reconciliations but there are people who make it happen.

Courteney Cox and David Arquette amazingly maintained a good relationship after their separation. The couple got married around 1999 and stayed together for about 10 years or more. They separated at 2010 without filing a divorce yet, maybe to test if their relationship can still be restored to how it was before also for the sake of the family they have. The reasons for their separation were not clear at first but they sure ended it quietly not showing any hard feelings for each other. Last year, June 2012, David Arquette filed their divorce papers with the reason of “irreconcilable differences”. However, in the recent episode of The Ellen DeGeneres show, when asked about their status, Courteney Cox answered with delight that David is her bestfriend in the world now and that she loves him. She justifies that they have discovered a lot about each other after the separation that made them respect each other more. They keep a good relationship as friends, which is very amazing if you would compare them to quite a big number of couples which turned bad. The two share their time with their eight year old daughter Coco that may also be the reason why this former pair gets to have time for each other as well.

David Arquette is currently dating Cristina McLarty from Entertainment Weekly and Courteney Cox is still single. Though there could be a lot of questions why they separated, why Courteney is still single and how come two years have passed before they decided to finally file a divorce, what’s important is they still maintain a good relationship with each other. These two met each other because of the movies and series they did together, got in love with each other when they were in F.R.I.E.N.D.S and now that they are friends again, who knows if there could be another chance for the love that was once there?
