Kristen Bell's Favorite Things...

Kristen Bell the star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall is such a cutie! And she is a Michigan girl like me so I have to love that! So what keeps her looking so darn cute??? Check out her favorite things!

Since Kristen is a vegetarian she loves salads her favorite is called the Garbage Disposal Salad...
"Oh my gosh, it's the best! I usually start with spinach, then put in almonds, pine nuts, dried cranberries, blueberries, apples, broccoli, cucumbers, carrots and celery. Believe it or not; it tastes good together. Put some feta or Parmesan on top and you don't even need dressing."

OK now I get why its called the garbage disposal that salad has everything in it!

Kristen also loves Kale Chips.
" A great way to get everything the super-food kale has to offer. Break off the stems and break the leaves into potato chip size pieces. Then drizzle them in olive oil, put sea salt on them, and bake em for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Tasty."

Wen Cleansing Conditioner
"It feels like a conditioner, but it actually cleanses your hair. And it doesn't make you an oily mess."

Kiehl's Cucumber Toner
"It cleans your skin, but it doesn't strip your skin."

The Solution Moisturizer
"It's completely natural-so much so that it goes bad after a couple of months. It's that healthy."

Who Rocked This Camilla & Marc Dress Best?

Who do you think rocked this hot Camilla & Marc dress best?

90210 star AnnaLynne McCord paired this "LBD"(Little Black Dress for those of you who weren't sure what LBD was) with a hot pair of red peep toe pumps a neon clutch and a trendy belt. Eonline reports that AnnaLynne wore this dress first at the Nylon party back in August.

Lea Michele from the new hit Glee rocked her "LBD" at a Fox party back in September. Lea took the more conservative approach with plain black pumps and sans jewelry. 

Last but not least...
High School Musical Star Ashley Tisdale rocked her "LBD" last Thursday at the Los Premios MTV event with sexy pair of leopard peep toe pumps and trendy belt.

For me it's kind of a toss up between Tisdale and McCord but I think I'm going to have to give it to McCord her bright colors make a statement and I like it ;)

Celebrity Hair Mishaps

I think everyone has encountered some hair mishaps in their past. I know I have...when I was 15 I really wanted my hair cut like Courtney Cox...yes this was during the late 90's when the Friends hair craze was in full effect. Well I went to the salon and brought in a picture and the stylist cut my hair way too short! My hair was cut to my chin when before my hair was about an inch past my shoulders. I just wanted layers and maybe a inch or so off. Wow I was devastated I started balling my eyes out as soon as I got into the car! Since I was a Freshman in high school and did not want to show off my new hair until I could figure something out I stayed home from school the next day obsessing about how I was going to do my hair until it grew back! Needless to say everything turned out fine and my life wasn't over becuase of my

Well celebrities are just like us and a few of them shared their hair mishaps of the past too.

Jessica Biel
"When I was 17, I cut my hair up to my ears. It was a blunt cut all the way around and I used to hairspray it until it was stiff. When I look back, I'm like 'Ugh!"

Anne Hathaway
She said that when she was younger she asked to have layers cut into her hair and the stylist cut the back all one length and left the two pieces in front long -like utters! Anne said 'It was horrible, but I kept a brave face, I even tipped her."

Halle Berry
Halle said that back in the 80s it was all about big hair and lots of make up and trying to look older than you were. Halle has said that she looks younger now at 42 than she did when she was 20! Halle said that back in 1994 she had a feathered hair do that she said looked like a backwards mullet!

Megan Mullally
Megan was a victim of the 80s perms! After so much chemical abuse she said that her hair was the color of a dead leaf!

Jane Krakowski
During her years on Ally McBeal actress Jane Krakowski had what she called a "tragic cut" saying someone convinced her to cut her hair like Ronald McDonald!
