What Hot Moms Named J.Lo Wear on Weekends

weekend

It’s weekend! Time for kids activities, practices and games, trips to the mall, hikes and journeys to visit friends and family or join in celebration. It’s highly likely that you’ll be spending your downtime in sweats, yoga pants, comfy jeans, t-shirts and tennis shoes.

But will you be looking like Jennifer Lopez? At 47-years young, she has a sick body, and a long list of boy toys (though the current one is retired major league baseball player Alex Rodriguez we hear).


We spotted the hot mama in a cropped white top showing off her insanely ripped and toned abs, a pair of Lululemon yoga pants and Neon Green Nike trainers, oh and of course, naturally, carrying a $ 7,000 white Hermes Birkin bag, the ultimate luxury tote for a woman of means, wealth and influence.

If only…right? Well, actually, if you can, why not!? Look! SHOP!

Pi Day: Get Blaze Artisanal Pizza for $3.14 Today

blaze-pizzaToday is¬†March 14 also known as¬†Pi Day, the numerical figure for the ratio of a circul’s¬†circumference to its diameter is 3.14. The day is¬†celebrated by the eating, purchase and making of actual pies. But¬†a pizza pie is also a pie, right?

So Blaze Fast-Fire‚Äôd Pizza’s nationwide are offering its yummy artisanal pizzas for just $3.14 each.

My family loves these pizzas because they, like & Pizza, Custom Pizza and other chains, allow customers to build their own personal pies. Last year, we lined up with dozens of coeds that live in our college town to get our heavily discounted pizza.


An assembly-line format allows guests to select a number of toppings from fresh ingredients ‚Äď all for under $8.

¬†Then, the 11-inch pies are sent to the oven for 180 seconds, emerging ‚Äúfast-fire‚Äôd‚ÄĚ and ready to eat.

Blaze Pizza makes its dough from scratch, using a recipe designed by Executive Chef Brad Kent to ensure a crisp, thin crust.

Other signature menu items include fresh salads, blood orange lemonade and s’more pies. The restaurant can cater to dietary needs with gluten-free dough and vegan cheese.

A quickly expanding company, Blaze Pizza’s first opened in California in 2012.

If you live near a Blaze pizza and aren’t blanketed under the Northeast storm, head out there for dinner this evening or for lunch.

 

Gwen Stefani Ditches Her Signature Ruby Red Lip for Hot Pink at 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards

Sizzling!

We were geeked to see our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum, singer and The Voice coach Gwen Stefani ditch her signature ruby red lip for neon pink tonight at the Nickelodeon’s 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards at USC Galen Center on March 11, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.


The star went with an embellished black rocker glam on the arrival carpet and hit the stage later to present an award in a cute “Slime” theme mini dress.

Good thing the mom to three boys stuck with her trademark platinum pony-tail or we wouldn’t be able to distinguish her from the twenty-something starlets out there.

Man, can you believe she is 47!?! Wow! Hot mama!

 

How Olivia Culpo’s Marchesa Water Dress helps Charity

…

f259bcdd-637b-4686-b4ed-d9019723e667

Actress and former beauty queen Olivia Culpo’s Oscar red carpet dress will help provide clean water to children in the developing world.

How?


The former Miss USA and Miss Universe 2012 teamed up with our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Georgina Chapman to design the dress made up of a chalice.

“It’s in partnership with Stella Artois and Water.org,” the star of The Other Woman ¬†told Ryan Secrest¬†on the red carpet. “Stella Artois created chalices and for one chalice sold, five years of clean drinking water is provided for someone in the developing world. So this dress is actually made out of the chalice pieces, and it’s encouraging people to get involved in the water crisis and buy the chalice.”

And it is a stunning masterpiece. It even flows like water.

“We wanted the dress to represent water itself, so it’s sort of cascading,” she explained. “The crystal represents the water as well. We knew we wanted tears.”

She continued, “They did an amazing job…and it’s fun when you can incorporate good things and charity into fashion!”

Nice!

Trending: How to Work Yellow Into Your Wardrobe, Preginistas!

picmonkey-collage-yellow

I’m very happy to see that yellow is a trending color for this Spring. It’s a great hue because it’s sunny, bright and could lighten your mood just by wearing it, I think. The downside of yellow if you are expecting and growing a tiny human inside of you is that bright colors like yellow may have you looking like the sun and you might like that.

Never fret! Be creative and find different ways to mix yellow into your wardrobe. Accessories are the best way to do that. Yellow tinted aviators or lemon framed sunglasses, sunflower yellow tassel earrings, a lemon chiffon patterned tote or a canary yellow scarf.


You can walk on sunshine with some yellow ballet flats, loafers or tennis shoes too. If you can be so bold and work in an environment that allows for creative dress, paint your nails yellow.

However, you can, go big and bold this Spring! Shop these styles:

Bryce Howard’s Red Carpet Picks Give Us One More Reason to Love her

more-reasons-to-love

The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards went down last night at The Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles, California and has been notable this year because of its diversity among winners (Viola Davis for Best Actress and Denzel Washington for Best Actor in Fences, Hidden Figures for Best Cast and Mahershala Ali for Best Actor Supporting Role in Moonlight).

But it was noteworthy in the fashion world for another reason.

This not the first time Howard, who was nominated for her performance in an episode of Netflix‘s Black Mirror,¬†has opted to skip the expensive couture and custom designed dresses many stars wear on the red carpet.

In December, the Twilight saga series star wore a dreamy yellow Top Shop gown to the Critics Choice Awards, which sells for just $240 at Topshop. At the 2016 Golden Globes, the daughter of famed actor turned director Ron Howard,  wore a blue Jenny Packham gown that she bought herself at Neiman Marcus the week of the show.

These choices are awesome because in a world where many people clamor to imitate celeb style, she makes it achievable for fashion conscious women of all socio-economic levels. Also, you got to give it up to her for giving back while looking fabulous! Score!


More reasons to love Bryce! Swoon!
