Paris, France The Cut: A classic bob She's an expert on the subject. You can check out the visual for "Pull Up" above. It appears as though Kate Moss is switching things up stylistically, yet again.
Last night in London, Moss was spotted leaving Mr. Chow, after celebrating the opening of hairstylist Sam McKnight's The supermodel has an arsenal of unexpected styling tricks at her fingertips, and yesterday she called on a trend that has been percolating for the past few seasons, namely fishnet tights. The look was on the runways for Fall at Balmain, Max Mara, and Jeremy Scott, and has been gaining traction in the world of street style, too.
For her part, Moss kept things simple, using the textured hosiery to amp up her party dress and rock star fringed booties. The post Kate Moss Read More 2. Hillary Clinton is nothing if not prepared. Instructions 1. Start with a round bamboo purse handle available at most craft-supply stores or online at www.
We made two dreamcatchers, one 11" in diameter and one 7" in diameter. To create the web within the ring, take 7 — 9 yards of wax cord for an 11" handle 3 — 5 yards for a 7" handle , and knot one end around a point on the hoop. Loop the cord once tightly around the hoop, and tie a knot 1" away from your starting point.
Then, to begin forming the web, make the next round of stitches not on the rim but through the center of each knotted section. Repeat this step, working your way around and around, expanding your web to the center of the hoop. Keep the cord taut, but not too tight or your dreamcatcher will warp. You can either decorate the excess cord and let it hang, or you can cut it off at the knot. To decorate your dreamcatcher, attach beads, feathers, shells, or gems to lengths of suede cord and tie them to the hoop.
Tie several inches of cord around the top of the catcher, hang it above your bed, and sleep like a baby. She attributed most of her vava-verve to exercise, lots of potassium, and doing everything herself. Combine 1 cup chopped dates, 1 cup boiling water, and 1 tsp. Pour the mixture into a greased 8-inch Springform pan, and bake for 45 minutes at degrees. Serve the pudding in slices smothered in warm sauce for a taste that screams glamour despite its peasant-girl appearance. But rather than give up on the idea, the duo came up with a solution: using recycled water bottles, they created a vertical garden that hangs in a window and can produce veggies year round.
Now you can tap their DIY ingenuity to sow an indoor crop of your own. The water then trickles down a root system stored in hanging, nested water bottles.

Places where regular folks exercise can make you feel more comfortable than hot spots packed with models and executives cruising each other. Get Over Yourself: One of the hardest hurdles to overcome is the feeling that everyone is looking at you because of your size.

Brush them with olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Bake in the oven at degrees until crispy. Toss them together with a few dashes of olive oil and a heaping handful of fresh chopped basil, then salt and pepper to taste.
For the pulled chicken, marinate 4 or 5 boneless chicken breasts overnight in a few shots of barbecue sauce, a shot each of Worcestershire, apple cider vinegar, and olive oil, fresh ground pepper, a few pinches of garlic powder, and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
Then bake at degrees until cooked through 40 minutes to an hour. Save all the drippings from the baking pan and pour over your pulled chicken. Start by taking a piece of scrap yarn, approximately 12", and tie the ends together, creating a loop. With your upright spindle in hand, wrap the yarn around the dowel below the whorl and secure it with a slip knot. This is your leader yarn; pull it up and over the whorl and through the hook.
Then park the spindle between your knees. This is called drafting. Then wind it onto the spindle below the whorl. Move your non-dominant hand to travel the twist upward over both ends, securing them together. Remove the leader yarn, and tie the ends of your new yarn together.
To keep it from getting tangled while you set the twist, tie thread around it in several different places before you pull it off the chair back. To set the twist, wet the skein, wring out excess water, and hang dry, weighting the bottom loop with a few coat hangers. When the yarn is fully dry, twist it until the skein folds back on itself, then pull one loop through the other. COM] For instructions on how to spin yarn with a wheel, go to www.

My second-grade classmates and I logged a lot of quality time with Cuisenaire Rods, a hands-on math system whose bright colors and functional design presaged the rise of Ikea.

Not to mention it smells amazing! But this scrub is perfectly gentle. Feel the burn! This toner was a great addition to my morning routine, and it left my face feeling fresh and clean all day. Just remember to moisturize afterward.
This toner got my face superclean—no grime or makeup in sight. It also left a pleasant tingly feeling on my skin but made my face a little too tight and dry for me to use it every day. It smelled a little funky like a very pungent garden center , but this toner chilled out my blemishy skin. Sweeping the green stuff over my just-washed face left me feeling cool, clean, and light. This mud mask takes some time to apply, though, and girls with superthick hair like mine will need a lot of it to coat from root to tip.
After rinsing it out, my locks were soft and completely tangle-free—a major perk for a lazy person with long hair. My hair is oily, and conditioning treatments usually add to the problem. But the natural magic of this mask made my tresses soft and silky, not greasy or weighed-down. As a sweaty girl, natural deodorant products usually turn me off.
However, this stick actually worked…for a couple of hours. I had to reapply during the day, but I felt good using something natural. After a liberal application, I was in the clear for a good hour. But when the sweat came, so did the smellies.

History talks, Abenaki and contra dances, Franco-American singing and a live performance of The Loggerkcc'p some things in the present tense. Sharon Jones is the Tina Turner of a new generation. No stranger to the Supernatural Amphitheatre, she owns the stage — lunging, prowling and feline — like no other act at the festival. The Dap-Kings drag you back to a time gone by where music floods the streets and impromptu jam sessions spring up on neighbourhood corners. The combination makes you feel like you accidentally stumbled into a Blues Brothers fi lm set and scored a role as a backing dancer.
To mention Dirty Three and Meredith in the same sentence is enough to give you chills. Their performance is flawless, impassioned, immediate, awe-inspiring. They hold nothing back. They are proud to be associated with the festival that sticks it as far up the mainstream as themselves and it shows. Dark, twisted beats flow up the sides of the amphitheatre and into the impressionable ears of tent-bound sleepers.
At ground zero though, the Melbourne shuffle is in full fl ight. Chemical and natural enhancers abound, and dinner-plate eyes head into the abyss of a late, late-night Saturday session. Until Tennessee hotties Those Darlins hit the stage, the festival had felt a little light-on in the area of grimy rock. Their three- and four-part harmonies and straight-up, three-chord assault set the stage on fi re. Hypnotic Brass Ensemble hit the stage with horns — one so large the dude has to wear it — and educate the Sunday Meredith crowd as to what a goddamn party looks like.
All brothers, the eight take the prize for best-looking group of the festival and pulse out some fi ne rhythms and fun-time party tunes, grinning widely and lapping up the unbroken attention of a dishevelled audience.
To those who whimpered off early, tails between their legs, we say: you missed the performance of the festival. Sucked in. The last of the bedraggled, broken and bearded boys and girls trundle past the remains of tents and gazebos to their cars, and we drive home knowing we gave it everything.
Little Red hit the stage at midnight, with the crowd ready for some primetime Friday night rocking. The setlist.
That it did, the band coming away with a major booking deal and enough interest to head back next year for the aforementioned festival run. Once this was done, it was home to Melbourne and back into the writing phase to put together the follow-up to their debut, Love Your Band, released last year.
The group played headline shows around Australia and played with some of their heroes including The Cruel Sea and Steve Kilbey. The Demon Parade now want to thank all their hometown friends and fans as they invite you to get hot and sweaty in the intimate confines of the Workers Club this Saturday. More importantly, there will also be free beer.

Anyone is welcome to use the house guitar, but you can take your own if you want to, otherwise take your plectrums, vocal chords or any other instrument you wish to play.

Head down and support your fellow musos, offer feedback and best of all, grab some cheap jugs ahoy! Entry is free from 7. After a quiet year on the live scene, Melbourne balladeers The Winter Migration are farewelling with a bang.
The group report that it is a tribute to the iconic Spotswood Sewerage Pumping Station and Japanese volcanoes. The gigs at the Edinburgh Castle come in anticipation of their upcoming album, Loom. The band play from 4pm until 6pm in the front bar; entry is free.
Limited tickets are still available, however the show is close to selling out so get in quick. This intimate gig will be your chance to see Hanlon in solo mode and hear stripped back versions of songs from his critically acclaimed album I Will Love You At All. I imagine the feeling in the band is good.
Regardless, the band knuckled down and came up with the tracks which will make up Attention Shoppers, due for release early next year. It was exhausting. We found that, anyway. Come along and make them feel welcome, as they reproduce for you their electronic sound, but with live instruments. He can drum, strum, sing and now mix up a party frenzy!

Galleon play the Workers Club this Friday. Adelaide is a relatively small scene and we were aware of one another and a couple of us were mates, so we kind of formed Galleon from the ashes of these old bands almost two years back. Our first single from the album was Kamikaze, and the one we are touring on now is In Stereo.
Playing with the likes of Radiohead, The Killers or Oasis would also be cool. If our drummer was answering these questions he would say Weezer.
Thankfully, however, we live in and some genius invented the iPod. I was taught how to cook this from a year-old Italian nonna. Have you heard of Orlando? Drunk activists — scary. We were only checking in one guitar each. The drive from Sydney Airport to Wollongong is like driving down from the mountains. It had stopped raining, but was so misty we could barely see 15 metres in front of us.
Matt Bailey the former bass player of Paradise Motel is currently mixing his second solo record, which is due for release early next year. Although we were all happy the sun was finally out. Need a spanking?
Doors open at 9pm. Adelaide-based indie rock four-piece Galleon have just announced the release of their brand new single, In Stereo, and accompanying East Coast launch shows. Doors at 8pm. We put a dozen songs together and decided it was working so we recruited Aron [guitar and vocals] in July, and finally Brendon [bass] in September.
I reckon: epic, melodic, quirky, real. The band has been mangling flesh and microphone leads solidly since the launch of their self-released debut EP, Washed Up, and are showing no signs of slowing down.
Doors open at 8. No sun has ever made it into to the Old Manly Boatshed. We meet up with [support act] Leena at Brisbane airport. Leena seems quite comfortable to be jumping in a car with two strangers. The bouncer was right. The Boatshed only holds but it felt like more. Maybe drunk people just take up more room. After the first set Jarrad, Craig and I went upstairs for some air. There were two guys trying to argue their way inside.
One was obviously and dramatically drunk. The other, while relatively sober, was dressed like a clown, with an oversized top hat on. We took wagers on who would be the one to make it in. Pink Floyd — just because. By the time we made it to Melbourne Airport it had stopped raining. Craig has a knack for it. Over the years he must have saved us thousands of dollars.
Everyone in the band has their speciality. Tickets from the venue. We were all hungry when we reached Toowoomba. Only half of this review turned out to be accurate. She covered up her name tag when I asked for her surname. She told us it was Cook and I remembered a joke about. The night very nearly got out of hand. One lady requested we play a Mr Big song before tripping on the fold-back speaker and falling face first on to the stage, spilling scotch and coke all over my delay pedal.
But when she picked herself up she had a different look on her face, and I could tell she knew I was lying. The evening kicks off at 8. So kick up the dust and shoot at the moon as these three bands drive you all night into an alt. Man, I like your Foster [sic], but sometimes the government gets to it. They do! Man, sometimes it tastes good, but sometimes it tastes like someone put their dick in it.
The government opens the bottles. Picture the scene: a long, narrow dive bar where the ceiling is low enough to touch and the walls are covered with yellowing photos and a couple of curling posters of jazz greats — Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, various others.
Eventually, the band start without the drummer, who sneaks in abashedly halfway through the set. The highlight is a dapper old gentleman with a suit, a flat cap and a slide trombone — he must be at least 70, and here he is at 2am, blowing soulful melody lines at the most strangely, endearingly unpretentious place in Manhattan. An hour later, the place is showing no sign of slowing down and we decide that five hours of jazz is enough.
Winter is really here. Her Magic Dirt bandmate Dean Turner co-produced the opening title track before he sadly passed away last year. This song goes for almost seven minutes but never feels overlong.
These recordings are raw without being devoid of melody. Bodes well for her debut solo album, due out in the new year. These ladies really brought it to Queenscliff Music Festival this year so I was eager to see how their act translated to recorded format.
The Nymphs sing into old school radio mics! Go check them out for yourself this Saturday night at the Builders Arms. Their dressmaker should also be commended.
There are definitely disparate forces at work here and Aussie pronunciation sits right out there. Tyler Kuulberg repeats his basslines with mathematical precision. Additional vocals are used to great effect in Seven Seconds, particularly in the intro and outro.
But, dudes! Harmonica is welcomed during The Story and adds an extra dose of rustic charm. After a busy spell on the road promoting their debut album, The Bon Scotts are going to be nestling in at the Builders Arms on Fridays, playing some of their toe-tapping sing-alongs to help you get over your Christmas blues. They play from 6pm until 8pm in the front bar; entry is free. So call your lawyer, rob your dealer and prepare to spend Christmas in prison because this will not end well.
Well, not just that — drink specials, free champagne with ticket, chillout stairway bar, outdoor smoking section, brilliant fun! Spawned in a forest enriched with arcane soundscapes, streams of distortion and anthropological questions; an existential voice has emerged. Rainbird is a perfect example of life imitating art, as a blend of charisma and mystique soaks into a blend of electricblues and prog-rock.
The album is due out early next year. Get on down and get merry! This Friday, jump that horse, win that punt and join in a party that promises a killer line-up as Clavians play alongside the emphatic pop rock symmetry of The No Real Need, the postpunk fury of Death Valley Band and the indie goodness of The Villains Lair. Bands kick off at 9pm. The first 50 punters get a limited edition single CD and a big bucket of scuzzy love. Since their humble beginnings as a two-piece blues band, The Beat Brothers have developed their sound into something, well… massive.
See them as a four-piece playing the songs from their second EP plus a bunch of new ones. Doors at 9pm. Prior to the release of the album, Laucirica was selected to support Mark Lanegan on each night of his Australian tour. Since its official release, Early Summer has garnered excellent reviews a considerable amount of recognition and airplay with the first single from the album, This World Can Make You Happy, recently added to high rotation on Triple J.
Now in their 16th year, Pet Rocks have wound their way via Auckland and Sydney to now being a Brunswick-based band. The constant throughout has been songwriter Nick Kreisler. This Sunday they roll over to Fitzroy to play the Builders Arms as part of their mini residency, supported by Omar Pervaiz.
Expect slacker indie rock, with a literate vibe, from this cracking four-piece band, performing songs from their critically acclaimed album Wayward Ways, as well as some tasty new tunes.
