Chelsea and Marc's Wedding Congratulations!

Chelsea Clinton wed her longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky (investment banker) in an interfaith ceremony that honored Christian and Jewish traditions at Hudson River estate. 

"Today, we watched with great pride and overwhelming emotion as Chelsea and Marc wed in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts, surrounded by family and their close friends," the Clintons said. "We could not have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the beginning of their life together, and we are so happy to welcome Marc into our family. On behalf of the newlyweds, we want to give special thanks to the people of Rhinebeck for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day."

How Do I Keep My Bra Straps From Showing?

We all love the cute sun dresse and tank tops that are out there for
summer, but one of the biggest problems is when you can see someone's bra straps! How can we hide them away when it gets warm out?"

 - Racerback: If you don't want to invest in a racerback bra (which might be worth it--I recently bought the Spanx Bra-lellujah and it's a comfortable lifesaver!), you could always opt for the informercial gadget that changed my sister's life--the Strap Perfect. Or, if you really want to make this one a cheap fix, gather your two straps in the middle of your back and have a friend stick a safety pin between 'em!

Spaghetti strap: If a dress or camisole has really thin spaghetti straps, I usually opt for a strapless bra.

Tank tops: When you're wearing sleeveless but headed somewhere that you really, really can't risk your bra hanging out (an important meeting, a family function), turn to one of my favorite old-fashioned secrets--lingerie snaps! Some dresses come with these handy little doo-dads already sewn in:

But for those that don't, it's an easy project to buy a few cheap snaps from your local sewing store, stitch one side to the underside of your most offensive dress straps, and let the other side hang from a short length (a half inch or so) of heavy thread. When you put the dress on, snap the bra strap in place and it won't go anywhere!

When all else fails, tricky necklines can always be handled with double-sided fashion tape or a convertible bra that lets you decide if it's strapless, crossback, one shoulder, etc. Buy it in a nude that matches your skin tone as closely as possible, and it'll work with everything in your wardrobe.

You Can Do It Uruguay! GO URUGUAY!

Germany makes 5 changes, Klose out vs Uruguay! 
Defender Lahm and forward Podolski are out with the flu. Uruguay made three changes to the team
Klose's aching back has prevented him from threatening Ronaldo's World Cup goal record of 15 as the striker could not make the Germany lineup of the third-place against Uruguay.

Some generally don't remember the team that finishes third at a World Cup, but it gives the Uruguayans and Germans a chance to sign off in South Africa with a victory!
Uruguay brought back memories of previous triumphs in 1930 and 1950 with their run to the last four.

World Cup cell phone shaped like a soccer ball

This may not be an official World Cup 2010 cell phone, but it certainly could be.

The Football 001 is a Quad Band GSM phone shaped like a soccer ball. The soccer ball is split in half and opens up to reveal an inside display and keypad. The phone’s specs are pretty standard, it comes with an FM radio, Bluetooth and a 2″ LCD. It’s most unique feature, aside from its shape, is that it is actually a dual sim phone. You can pick up your “World Cup Cellphone” for $159.99.
Can you hear me now?

Don't Cry For Me Argentina! Germany beats Argentina 4 -0

Que paso Maradona?  Pibe nos ganaron?

"It was absolute class," Germany coach Joachim Loew said.  Hard to argue with that, and I love to argue. :(

Argentina had been one of the tournament's darlings, with coach Diego Maradona's every move causing a stir and superstar Lionel Messi showing you don't need to score to be sublime.  The Argentines rolled into the quarterfinals as one of only two teams to win all its games - the Netherlands was the other - and had been powerful they never trailed.

No wonder a star-studded crowd was on hand at Green Point Stadium, with German chancellor Angela Merkel, Mick Jagger, Leonardo DiCaprio, and South Africa's own Charlize Theron were all spotted in the VIP seats.

But Germany overwhelmed the Argentines, and shut down Messi in the process. "I'm as disappointed as all Argentinians," Maradona said. "To see my country lose a football match is very hard for someone who has worn the shirt."  It was very painful to watch how they crucify my still favorite team Argentina!!!!  As I said in my previous blogs - there is always another one - World Cup 2014!  That's football, that's why I LOVE the World Cup, full of excitement, tears, but definitely full of surprises.

I must admit, the Germans were amazing!  We still have Paraguay and Spain, Good Luck!
We'll see who take the World Cup....  Lo ultimo que puedo decir es, Que Gane el Mejor!
