    From Hello Beautiful:

    Fashionistas take pride in their looks, from head to toe. Women are realizing that the sacrifice of their bodies to have hype hair is not cute, or that starving themselves to keep a flat tummy is not good either. Here are five ways you can spend time at the gym and step out with your hair still in place and looking great!

    Look Pretty In Your Ponytail
    Ponytails can be sexy, flirty, simple, and chic. If your locks are long, you cannot really go wrong with this style.

    Take a flat brush, spray a high shine, holding spritz on it, and brush your hair into a ponytail. International creative consultant for John Frieda, Harry Josh, suggests that the ponytails should be at eye level and to pull out some strands of hair in the front to hang naturally, "A wispy, piecy look is sexy," says Josh. It also holds well while you're aerobicizing or working with weights.

    From Newsweek:

    "Hello? Housekeeping." The maid hovered in the suite's large living room, just inside the entrance. The 32-year-old Guinean, an employee of the Sofitel hotel, had been told by a room-service waiter that room 2806 was now free for cleaning, "Hello? Housekeeping," the maid called out again. No reply. The door to the bedroom, to her left, was open, and she could see part of the bed. She glanced around the living room for luggage, saw none. "Hello? Housekeeping." Then a naked man with white hair suddenly appeared, as if out of nowhere.

    From Daily Finance:

    Credit is ever so personal, and ultimately it's your responsibility -- but maybe this time, it's not solely about you. Where you live matters: Your state's creditworthiness can impact you too.

    For that reason, CardRatings.com's recently released rankings of the 10 Best and Worst States for Consumer Credit is worth a look-see.

    As gay couples in New York file into churches and courthouses to legally marry and later celebrate their nuptials, New York City's theater world has found its own unique ways to observe and celebrate the historic occasion.

    Over the weekend Tony award winning actress and singer Audra McDonald of A Raisin in the Sun and Ragtime fame (and less so the Grey's Anatomy spinoff Private Practice), sung at one of the first ceremonies in the state, one officiated by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

    "So honored and excited," McDonald tweeted.

    Even gay puppets got in on the action.

    According to Broadway.com, Avenue Q puppet characters Rod and Ricky got married at city hall before Sunday's show.

    "To have this finally happen for us - especially so soon after Will and Kate - is unbelievable to me," Rod said in a statement, according to the website. "I realize there are a lot of broken hearts out there now that Ricky and I are off the market - step back, all you chorus boys! - but I've known since Day One that Ricky is the husband for me. He's the furry fellow I want to spend my life with both on and off the stage."

    Later tonight other gays in the Broadway community plan on gathering at the St. James Theater tonight following an evening performance of Hair to wed.

    "It's not just a summer of love," Rory O'Malley, star of The Book of Mormon and a co-founder of the gay rights group Broadway Impact, said at a press conference announcing the event. "It's a summer of equality."

    The adventures of Mimi aren't all about her life as a wife to actor Nick Cannon and mom to almost three-month-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe. Mariah Carey debuted a new collection of fashion, jewelry, shoes, and fragrances in a two-hour spot on HSN last night, which also showcased the songstress' comic relief.

    Matt Cherette at Gawker highlighted some of Carey's best HSN moments, including a bevy of complaints about the horrible pregnancy she had, carrying the twins for forty-seven weeks, and the "math involved" in keeping up with the cameras on set.

    "I'm kind of proud of myself. I really am -- sorry, pregnant with twins is different than anything!" she said. "[People] were always saying to me, 'Oh, but it's all worth it!' Yeah, but it's easy to say when you're not the one whose feet are this big!" Her many asides kept the focus more on herself than on the products she designed -- glitzy jewelry and handbags, velour sweatsuits, and strappy metallic heels.

    Carey hasn't been seen much in public since she gave birth to twins and we couldn't imagine a more entertaining comeback.

    From Courthouse News
    : A high school southeast of Little Rock would not let a black student be valedictorian though she had the highest grade-point average, and wouldn't let her mom speak to the school board about it until graduation had passed, the graduate claims in Federal Court.

    Kymberly Wimberly, 18, got only a single B in her 4 years at McGehee Secondary School, and loaded up on Honors and Advanced Placement classes. She had the highest G.P.A. and says the school's refusal to let her be sole valedictorian was part of a pattern of discrimination against black students.

    Wimberly says that despite earning the highest G.P.A. of the Class of 2011, and being informed of it by a school counselor, "school administrators and personnel treated two other white students as heir[s] apparent to the valedictorian and salutatorian spots."
