"Though you be away from me, you can not escape the love"______Nicole K. Phillips for Abornewords


MontBlanc writing instruments sounds so fancy, but it is rightfully befitting for such an important object used to bring pen and paper together. Because of the construction of these carefully crafted pens, you may occasionally lean to display and admiration instead of a spill of your thoughts.

At some point in your life you have heard this phrase or in an attempt to convince some resistant child to ear, you have uttered each and every word with general concern.

Band Baaja Baaraat: A Bollywood Hit

Posted by Nicole K. on Monday, November 28, 2011, In : Movies 

It's a movie directed by Maneesh Sharma starring Anuska Sharma and Ranveer Singh. In Bollywood, it's all the rave. Want to know how this movie measures up?

 

The plot stacks up as a classic case of innocence bound to transition into something serious, showing an admirer with stalker like tendencies. How harmless is the presentation of a gift? In this case it serves as an in-between that allows Bittoo Sharma (played by Ranveer Singh) to meet the mystery college student, but the amicable exchange...

Shingai Shonia: Barefoot & Singing in Tune with the Noisettes

Posted by Nicole K. on Sunday, November 27, 2011, In : Celebrities 

Everyone has a way or style to use when getting it good. Down into something deep, and a profound sense of self. You know you do it! Stop trying to play innocent because I brought it up. It's how you dance to your favorite song, or the way you wear your hair on a fist date. That thing about you that you don't mind sharing. Alter ego perhaps? Whatever you want to call it. I bring it up here only because I am privileged to be in the process of getting to know a lot of talent, and the door is op...

Sunday Politicking: The Hour Glass of Government

Posted by Nicole K. on Sunday, November 27, 2011, In : Politics 

It seems that there are major issues in the air that concern the allocation of funds. As if that surprises anyone right? Realizing that no one person or side for that matter can solve problems alone (or at least without cooperation) is a start. Presenting a plan or ideas in conference that opens the door to discussion is what will lead to a solution eventually, or a valid attempt to fix something that appears to be broken. Within the political realm it's always about creating a stable workabl...

Chris Noth: Using His Celebrity To Improve Health

Posted by Nicole K. on Sunday, November 27, 2011, In : Health 

The food choices we make are important not only for the obvious reason of weight management but proper nourishment. An unhealthy diet that is high in fat, high in sugar, and low in fiber is like a gateway diet that makes a person more  likely to develop Type II Diabetes. Genetics plays more of a role when considering obesity as a factor causing the disease. Type I Diabetes usually occurs during puberty, but it can also happen at any age. Genetics plays less of a role as far as the disease pro...

We were able to get our hands on a few good shots of a couple of the International Jury Members and also some head shots of a few who we certainly wished we had photographs of on the Red Carpet. Nonetheless, we do realize that it is always fun to dress up for a night on the town so imagine how over joyed you would feel, if you were going to a ceremony full of talented people. Large and in charge is an understatement. How sure do these VIP's look alll done up from head to toe? Let me show you ...

Eyes by Afterglow Cosmetics

Posted by Nicole K. on Friday, November 25, 2011, In : Make Up 

"The eyes are the window to the soul" now has become a part of the lyrics to a song called eyes from the artist Kaskade. Contemplating on that powerful statement is really a search for deeper meaning in the absence of language. Finding meaning when eyes meet and looking for a non-stated message means expecting communication to happen on another level. Think about these senarios. A mother looking into the eyes of her child at age 21. The moment your clear vision returns after an eye examinatio...

Asian Pacific Screen Awards 2011 is Here Already

Posted by Nicole K. on Thursday, November 24, 2011, In : Award Shows 

It's an Asian persuasion, but do I have to convince you to think in terms of the unfamiliar language of the stars who sound a little different from you? The creative voices sound to the tune of Band Baaja Baaraat. Confused? English is something close meaning Bands Horns and Revelry. Not to much of a lesson but certainly a little clarity. The movie was released in December of 2010 and is now nominated at this years Asian Pacific Screen Awards. Take a look at Senator Chris Dodd delivering the k...

A video has surfaced with a report on Rihanna's reaction to the single life with her words being quoted verbatim, according to a trusted source. The singer apparently believes that the single life is not cool. Does she somehow equate going stag with being alone?

The Mentally Challenged In Love
