It was another hectic car chase with Lindsay today following her from her mandatory community service at the Red Cross. I always thought chasing someone on the streets was already crazy but successful following someone on the freeway took skills and balls. Especially when Lindsay was behind the wheel pretending it was the Indy 500 trying to get away from us. She wanted to stay out of the public eye because of the recent bad press about her rock star lifestyle. Of course, the media blew it out proportion calling her a troubled lost young adult, not resembling her younger former self. In any case, she didn’t give up all day long which seemed like she wasn’t going to give it up without a fight.
We were determined to get a shot of her because everyone wanted to know what she was up to and everyone loves a fall from grace story. We carefully navigate our cars in and out of traffic, amazingly not causing any traffic accidents. She thankfully gets off the freeway heading towards Hollywood. We all prepare ourselves for her landing, telling my partner in the other car to get ready. She drives into a residential neighborhood, finally stopping at her assistant’s house.
We quickly park our rides right in the middle of street blocking incoming traffic. We try to shoot her as soon as she gets out of her car but she puts her jacket over her head running towards the house as we try to get any kind of angle of her face but failing miserably. We then make the cardinal sin by getting on her property but I noticed what we were going and I stopped myself but unfortunately it didn’t stop the others from trying to take pictures of her. Looking at other paps not give a fuck about her private space as they walk all over the assistants Rose garden, shooting her right on her doorstep as she walks in to get away from the savages.
Most of the paps decide to leave because they all felt like she wasn’t going out anymore because we acted like such animals towards her on the way in. My partner and I were the only ones to stay behind because we didn’t great shots of her going in. We quietly stayed inside of our cars hoping that she would step out again trying to get something for all our hard work today. An hour passes by as I start becoming claustrophobic inside of my own car.
I had to step outside, lighting up a fag. My partner had the same brilliant idea joining me outside as we smoked right in front of Lindsay’s house. As we were trying to relax we hear a faint call in the distance. It was Lindsay asking for a match.
We turn around looking at Lindsay walk towards us as we both don’t react to what was happening. She casually walks up towards us asking for a light again as my partner finally gives her a lighter. There was a bit of awkward silence for a couple of minutes as you would imagine as we both look at Lilo both of us thinking, why the hell we are not shooting the shit out her. She breaks the uncomfortable silence by talking about the weather as we respond with one word answers still in shock to what was going on. We were in the Twilight Show where she was a normal person and we weren’t scumbag paparazzis trying to get a photo.
We were just normal people sharing a metaphorical fire together using the bond of lung cancer. Looking at her carefully smoking her cigarette, she didn’t look like a troubled or lost person. She looked like any another young woman trying to get her shit together but with the add pressure of media. If we were in her shoes we wouldn’t probably handle it as well as she did. She finished her last puff saying it was great talking to us even though we only said a couple of words. It was nice to see we could be normal people if only for a couple of minutes.
She walked back into her house as we walk back into our cars thinking about how amazing that interaction was between us and Lindsay. A couple of minutes later she came out with her assistant as we start shooting her again, walking towards her car pretending that we didn’t have an incredible bond we made just minutes ago.
But this is what it is, a symbiotic relationship between the hunted and the hunters, but always knowing we were all the same.
Just a bunch of people trying to make sense of this crazy ass world we are living in which all of us trying are best and hopefully we can stop cutting each other down, but let’s face it.
Haters are going to hate. It’s easy to say shit while you’re looking up from the bottom. I say “fuck em,” give them a reason to hate and just do you. Remember not everyone liked Jesus, but it didn’t stop him from being legendary.

Lipstick has become a beauty staple for me the past few years. I wear it almost every day, and I get a lot of questions from friends and readers which types of lipsticks I wear and how I actually make it last all damn day. My friends are always pretty surprised that I can go most of the day, while eating and drinking, and still have my lips pretty much fully intact. So today, I am sharing 5 steps that will make you lipstick stand the test of time…or until you decide to wash your face. See below!
1. Exfoliate and moisturize
I wash my face every night, and I always make sure to exfoliate my lips because wearing lipstick as often as I do, it can easily dry out my lips. Some people use lip scrubs, but I found that using a washcloth and water works just as well and is a cheaper, easier way…

It’s been eight days since I returned to my bungalow from the beautiful goodness of Iceland. It’s been my dream to go to Iceland way before it was cool-it was actually a quiz question on a “How well do you know Lindsay?” game at my 14th birthday as my #1 travel destination. I ended up going a few more places before making it to the land of fire and ice, but the timing ended up being pretty perfect (we have Instagram now!) My mom (remember her from her awesome guest post?) and I have this awesome tradition where we go on a fabulous trip every couple of years. Iceland marked four years since our last trip to Ireland and Scotland and now I can’t imagine waiting FOUR MORE WHOLE YEARS before another trip together because we always have the best time and laugh and laugh and explore everything.

Today I thought I’d share a few ways you can ‘go green’ and make a fashion statement this coming St. Patricks Day 🙂 Growing up I never worried much about wearing something Green on Paddy’s Day, but I know in a lot of places it can be a tradition:) I found all these items on Asos.com and they don’t break the bank either 😀
My first pick is this gorgeous little sundress that goes lovely with these mid-heeled sandals if you’re lucky enough to get great weather this Paddy’s Day 🙂
Now if you’re really not into dressing up or if comfort means more to you this oversized jumper would be perfect 🙂
If you plan on heading out and really want to make a bold statement then this metallic green mini dress should be right up your ally 😀
Asos actually has a lot of options when it comes to…

There are times in a girl’s life, when the shopaholic brat, inside of her, blinds her choices and rules her actions. As a fashion lover, I can’t deny it, that part of me, wants to get its way more times than I can recall, but I tend to be very rational about it. Nevertheless, I am still only human.
When I opened my latest bank statement it felt like a punch to my gut. It left me panting for air. I was walking on Rebecca Bloomwood’s fuchsia furry boots, and it didn’t feel good. My eyes scrolled down the stiff paper trying to take in every number. There was no mistake. I could account for every figure on the statement.

According to CNN, “Fearless Girl” was installed Tuesday by State Street Global Advisors as part of the asset-manager’s campaign to increase the number of women on their clients’ corporate boards.
A group of women who work together also came to the financial district to see the statue on International Women’s Day. “We really like the little girl standing up to the bull,” one said.
A man who works nearby said, “I have two daughters and I thought it was pretty impressive that they have this up here.”
“Fearless Girl” wasn’t the only one overwhelmed by attention. The woman who created her, artist Kristen Visbal, says she’s been inundated with calls and emails from fans.
Visbal said that team behind the campaign,which includes the advertising agency McCann NY, approached her to design a statue of a young girl. “We were focusing on making a statement about the future of Wall Street,” she said. “We wanted this wonderful contrast,” she said, between the delicate child and the aggressive bull.
“I think the fact that she’s a child makes the figure much more endearing.”
Visbal was particularly moved by an image of young girl wearing a cape and posing beside the statue.
“The whole project is about girl power,” she said. “I love that phrase, because it makes us a lot stronger if we are in unison.”
Anne McNally, SSGA’s head of public relations for North America, told CNNMoney that the group has a permit that allows the statue to remain in place for one week, but that they are seeking an extension that would keep “Fearless Girl” in place for a month.
“After that, it’s up to the city,” she said. “We would be very supportive of a permanent installation as a piece of art.”
What are your thoughts on the statue?
“A red winged angel flew into amass of white clouds. Brief was her embark through the snow white surround. Her curiosity was rewarded after passing through the cumulus completely. She returned on the sky blue path seeking her landing place among her kin. Landing within the village square she was met with eyes of awe and astonishment. Compliments of a change she herself was unaware of, directed her eyes to her own wings. An elder of the village made her way through the crowd, with tear filled eyes. She described the tint in her wings as pink, a shade known well amongst humans. The memories of her years spent as a guardian flooded her consciousness. Joy and sorrow danced in her heart, and her tears began to fall like raindrops. Like a harp and a lute, her stories carried melodies of truths of the newly found shade. She explained, The…

As I have said before I honestly think that if you take care of your skin you could get away without wearing makeup. So I’m going to tell you some tips and tricks as to how to keep your skin soft, smooth and youthful.
Disclaimer- I AM NOT a dermatologist so if your face falls off (but it probably won’t) don’t sue me please.
1- Remove makeup- This is probably one of the most basic skincare laws but I must say it. Take off your make up. If you don’t it clogs up your pores and leads to spots and dry skin also Fun Fact- Your skin ages 2 whole days every time you don’t remove your makeup.
2- Sleep- As a rather average teen I don’t sleep until roughly maybe 1:30 am so that’s probably not that great for your skin and that makes me a massive hypocrite. But you…
