Audrina Partridge, Vanessa Hudgens and Jessica Lowndes are top of the crop tops

It was the battle of the midriffs at this years young Hollywood awards.Top of the crop tops were Audrina Partridge, Vanessa Hudgens and Jessica Lowndes who all displayed enviably toned tummies.

Audrina sparkled in a celestial white ensemble. She accessorized her look with a pair of tan heels and her long dark tresses half pinned back to show off her pretty face.

Jessica worked a sexy black Three Floor mini skirt and top combo that showed off her perfectly toned legs. The 90210 actress complimented her full on look with slicked back hair and barely their sandals.

But it was Vanessa Hudgens who stole the style show in a blue halterneck crop top and floaty white palazzo pants. She kept her look young and fresh with natural make up and an arm full of boho bangles. It’s hardly a surprise the 25-year-old star won the Trendsetter award.

UFOs Over Toronto Caught On Tape, Prompting Police Reports

Something was flying over Toronto on Saturday night, causing residents to contact police and take to social media with images and videos of lights in the sky.

“It was really high up, and was round, bright and shining,” Sarah Chun, who recorded videos of the lights with her iPad and posted them to YouTube, told the Toronto Star. “At first I thought it was stars or something, but it was too bright to be. I didn’t know what it was.”

Chun said the lights lasted for about 25 minutes.

“It kind of flew, and then disappeared,” she was quoted as saying.

Some witnesses posted photos to Twitter, including one taken before sunset that looks more like a bird than a flying saucer. Others posted images of a mysterious light hovering over the city:

So far, no one has been able to identify the flying objects, but there’s no shortage of theories.

UFOs, drones or kites What’s behind these strange flashing lights spotted over North York? http://t.co/4ALmFZyuXs pic.twitter.com/OeuecgaIKj

— CTV Toronto (@CTVToronto) July 27, 2014

One Toronto resident told CTV he saw kids setting up a kite with a light rig attached to it.

“After it got dark, a couple of hours later, I notice a line of lights,” Alejandro, who did not give a last name, told the network via email. “(It) looked like a very potent laser pointing vertical to the sky, but it was the kite these people were preparing.”

Some think the lights may have been lanterns sent up for Ramadan while others, like Toronto police constable Craig Brister, believes it may have been a type of drone known as a quadcopter:

I’ve been a police officer for 15 years. Tonight I have a first! My first report of a UFO!! He was serious! #quadcopter

— Officer Craig (@PC7634) July 27, 2014

Brister, who also saw the lights while on bike patrol, later told CP24 that he was only speculating.

Constable Brian Harper backs the drone theory.

“Remote controlled drones, you can buy them in any model store anywhere in the city,” he told The Globe and Mail. “Put some lights up on them and fly them around the building.”

Toni Garrn sizzles on Leonardo DiCaprio’s yacht

Leonardo Dicaprio proved he is one lucky
man as he enjoyed a vacay in Ibiza. The Wolf of Wall Street star wasn’t
enjoying the stunning views of the White Isle though but rather his incredibly
hot model girlfriend Toni Garrn.

The supermodel was holidaying with her Oscar
nominated beau in a tiny black string bikini which showed that even the
simplest of attire looks beautiful on Garrn.

Black is clearly the colour of choice for
the twenty-two year old as Toni also sported a black bandeau bikini on Leo’s mega
yacht.

The beauty also cooled off with a dip in
the ocean before jumping on a speedboat with her 39 year-old man.

The Latest Post Published On Claire Magazine - http://blog.clairepeetz.com/im-halfway-through-this-pregnancy-omg-and-heres-the-stuff-ive-been-loving/

I’m halfway through this pregnancy (omg)… and here’s the stuff I’ve been loving.

pregnancy stuff I'm loving I howsweeteats.com

I seriously can’t believe that I’m a little over halfway in this whole pregnancy thing… Not really sure if I can describe how I feel physically – I don’t feel like myself but I totally feel like myself. I don’t feel amazing and wonderful but I don’t feel terrible or bad by any means. I feel normal and good and like me but not like me? It is so odd. I cannot explain it!

I can thankfully still move around easily and exercise and stuff. But I totally notice some out-of-breath feelings when I walk up the steps or go for a walk with someone other than just myself. We had our anatomy ultrasound and didn’t even peek when it was possible to determine it’s boy or girlness. It’s still going to be a complete surprise.

Anyhoo.

These are the things that I’ve been L.O.V.I.N.G. the past twenty plus weeks. Twenty weeks sounds like for-ev-ER.

This big pillow has somewhat saved my sleep… when I do sleep. Almost immediately sleeping on my stomach became incredibly uncomfortable and kinda hurt. And I tend to go back and forth between being a stomach and back sleeper. I’ve NEVER been a side sleeper. I got this pillow around seven weeks and haven’t had a night without it yet. I prop another regular pillow up against the back of it to try and keep myself on my side and it works for the most part. The only love/hate thing about the makeshift pillow fort is that is puts a barrier between Eddie and I – but that’s also kind of amazing given how he sleeps. If you’ve read my blog for five years, you get this. The whole not-being-tired thing still blows my mind because it’s all I’ve heard people talk about for years.

For a few years I’ve been taking gummy prenatal vitamins… you know me and my gummies. But once I actually got pregnant I figured maybe I should step it up a little and not be a child. The vitamins were tough at the beginning because of the nausea, so I’ve always made sure to take them at night. I’ve been taking these garden of life vitamin code raw prenatals. I love them. BUT. I have had a massive phobia of swallowing pills since I was a kid, so every day I get a little anxiety over having to take three of them. I’ve embarrassingly choked multiple times but can get them down. I can find them at whole foods but usually can get them on amazon or vitacost for much cheaper.

If you know how much of a book freak I am it may come as a surprise to know that I really haven’t wanted to read… anything… when it comes to pregnancy. I am finally feeling more comfortable reading a few things, but since I was so scared in the beginning, I couldn’t even bring myself to read. I thought I’d jinx it. I stayed away from all forums. I didn’t even get what to expect when you’re expecting because of the reviews I read and how much it freaked some people out – and I’m a lunatic so I figured it would freak me out too. The only book I read was the panic free pregnancy. I loved it. It calmed some fears and kept the details matter of fact so I tried not to be so worried. I do have a few other books like ina may’s guide to childbirth and what not. I’ll keep you posted on those!

Later this week when I talk about my monthly beauty favorites I’ll go into more detail about some of the things I’ve been using. But on that same topic, one of the first things I purchased when I found out was this l’occitane almond supple skin body oil. To be real, I’m not that concerned about stretch marks. I mean, if it happens, it happens. I don’t even know if my mom has them – I’ve never asked or paid attention! But I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon of buying one of these creams or oils that moms-to-be usually use, and I absolutely love this one. I wasn’t using it every single night – especially at the beginning. And I’m well aware that I could just use coconut oil too, which I always have a ton of. I was drawn to this after reading some reviews because it’s a spray (oh so convenient) and I’m nutty about almond-like scents. (embarrassing bad pun.) I haven’t had any itching yet or anything on my stomach, but now that I’m getting bigger I have been using this daily. I also have the pure shea buter from l’occitane and like that too.

The other somewhat beauty related thing I’ve been a psycho over is SPF. We haven’t had too much of a crazy heat wave yet so I haven’t desperately wanted to be in a pool, but I’ve managed to somewhat keep my face shielded from the sun and am whacked out about applying sunscreen before I go anywhere. All the time, all over. So far – no sunspots or darkening of my skin anywhere… yet. I’m so fair that it’s probably coming.

Ummm. Can we talk about hot dogs? This may sound ridiculous but we need to. I love me a good hot dog in the summer. My doctor says they are fine as long as they are cooked, obviously. I was a little iffy though – and a few weeks after I found out I was pregnant I learned about fork in the road hot dogs from Maggy. I rarely ever accept any products but I had no way of purchasing these dogs (they aren’t in my area) and when they offered to send me some, I jumped on it. THEY ARE SO GOOD! Ugh. Can’t even take it. I believe they are only on the west coast Click Here To Read The Full Story
