Margarite Elaine has partnered with Snap Shots

Hi All!

I just installed a nice little tool on this site called Snap Shots that enhances links with visual previews of the destination site, interactive excerpts of Wikipedia articles, MySpace profiles, IMDb profiles and Amazon products, display inline videos, RSS, MP3s, photos, stock charts and more.

Sometimes Snap Shots bring you the information you need, without your having to leave the site, while other times it lets you "look ahead," before deciding if you want to follow a link or not.

Should you decide this is not for you, just click the Options (wheel) icon in the upper right corner of the Snap Shot and opt-out.

ME and My Money: Miss Money Bags

MICHAEL Michael Kors Hudson Soft Large Shoulder Bag

If you're like ME, you need a handbag that can fit everything plus the kitchen sink. No matter how many times I try to downsize my purse (or luggage as my mom calls it), I always end up back in my big comfortable bags. This purse is soft, subtle, sexy and will look very chic as it hangs from my arm. What's the litmus test? Can you help ME lift this kitchen sink?

When I think of all the wonderful clothing that this Haurex watch will accent, I truly get overwhelmed.

ME and My Money: These boots were made for walking

Nina Ricci - Long Scrunched Boot

Now that the holidays have come to a close, I can focus on my resolutions for the New Year. My main focus in 2009 will be generating revenue. With all of my new money, I'd splurge on this subtle leather boots from Nina Ricci. These would look great with all my skinny jeans or leggings and would really step up my shoe game. Now, all I have to do is convince my accountant that shoe shopping is a valid business expense. Any suggestions?

Music News: RIP Pimp C


Hip-Hop legend. Re-Emerging Star. Southern Rap Pioneer.

All of these words describe Pimp C, one-half of hip-hop duo UGK. Chad Butler (i.e. Pimp C) was found dead in his LA Mondrian hotel room on Tuesday. A cause of death has yet to be determined however investigators do not suspect foul play. UGK opened the doors for many other Houston rappers such as Mike Jones, Slim Thug and Paul Wall to gain commerical success. Pimp C played a key role in the rise of Southern hip-hop and the UGK hit "Big Pimpin'" introduced his talent to those outside of the Houston city limits. Pimp C is the second Houston area rapper to die in the past few months. Kenneth "Big Moe" Moore died two months ago of a heart attack. John "Big Hawk" Hawkins was shot and killed outside his home in 2006. As a Houston native, my heart truly goes out to Pimp's family during this difficult time.

But now Katie Holmes is married and mother to her beautiful baby girl, Suri. She recently attended the Bambi Awards in Dusseldorf with hubby, Tom Cruise, and totally stole the show. The world's all a-buzz with news of this new haircut. It's bold, sleek and simply fantastic!
