Amar’e Stoudemire knicks player at MBFW sings! BY JULIA CORS0(my daughter)

Knicks stylish player, Amar'e Stoudemire  sang to blurred lines by Robin Thicke as he watched the  The Strut fashion show  for stylish Mom's. Is he a fan of the Thicke??               

 

  

                                     @djfluano
At the Strut fashion show in Lincoln Center last night , during   NYC fashion week Knicks player Amar'e Stoudemire showed up to support his family at the  STRUT for a cause show for stylish MOM's by Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Gerstein.
During the fashion show Knicks player started to sing to "Blurred Line" by Robin Thicke, I watched him as he sang along.  Is music his next career after basketball?  IM not one  to spread roumers but when, "We Can't Stop" played by Miley Cyrus stared he lost his mojo and went back to looking like professional  basketball  player  and DAD,so I'm guessing that he saw her performance at the VMAS, like my Mom and DAD and was not happy about her performance. Anyway he  liked the show, high fived and was very friendly to everyone  who wanted  pics. Now let's get real look at what he was wearing, ok he was rocking those shades he was wearing, black dark sunglasses  he was cool, he had a blonde streak in his hair. I liked his style, it was cool. He was proud of his family like my Dad is of me!                                                         me Julia singing to blurred lines

Why is Lady GaGa Naked with a Quartz Crystal?? I can Explain!! by Cherie Corso

Reiki & Crystal healing and Quartz Crystals

What is Reiki? and Why Quart

This is a picture of Lady GaGa feeling the healing energy from the crystal! It does work!

The word Reiki is derived from two Japanese words: rei meaning Universal Spirit and ki meaning life force energy. In Reiki, hands are the channels for energy (ki) guided by the Universal Spirit (Rei). Mystics of all cultures speak of the physical universe being made of an underlying form of energy which is subject to or affected by thought.

Reiki is a flexible, ever-evolving form of healing, relaxation and personal development. Practicing Reiki helps bring about harmony in the body, leading to a deep sense of relaxation. As well as having this wonderfully calming affect on the healee, the person giving a Reiki treatment also receives the healing effect of the Universal energy that flows through them. Many hospitals and Doctors use Reiki healers in conduction with traditional medicines.

This is said to be an intelligent energy in that it seems to know where to go for healing to take place and what is needed. It never does any harm. The energy does not come from the Reiki practitioner. The practitioner is a channel for the healing energy.

Some benefits of Reiki include:

  • a balancing of physical/mental/emotional and spiritual energies
  • enhanced personal awareness; reiki increases inner peace and mental clarity/emotional stability
  • improved creativity
  • suppressed feelings are released
  • a reduction of stress and tension and pain relief
  • aids positive thinking, its all about the energy flow
  • Reiki can therefore be used for many reasons including reducing stress or tension, relieving pain, headaches, back problems, respiratory problems, PMT, menstrual problems and more. Reiki should be used to compliment traditional medicine and not as an alternative.
It is a gentle non-invasive method of healing. Through Reiki, practitioners can also develop personal and spiritual growth.
 

The Differences between Reiki and Spiritual Healing

Reiki draws on the Universal spirit to heal however there are differences between Reiki and other methods of healing such as spiritual healing. Through Reiki, energy is channelled by an attuned person to empower the healee to cure themselves. The healer acts as a channel for the energy normally without being drained themselves. A spiritual healer is a person said to be gifted in the powers of healing who will channel energy to bring about a cure. Spiritual healers believe themselves to be vulnerable to other influences/entities and to picking up problems from the person they're working on when they open themselves to the energy. They take steps to protect themselves against this. Reiki attunement seems to protect and prevent Reiki practitioners from picking up any negative influences from the healee.

There are several different forms of Reiki. As knowledge is passed down from Master to student, students have developed and passed on their own understanding and individual methods. Even so the basic concept of channelling Universal energy is common to them all.

Different symbols are used in each Reiki practice. Some practitioners are trained in and use more than one form of Reiki. Each method has its place in healing.

Reiki is guided by the Universal Spirit/energy that sustains and balances all life on this planet. It is an intelligent energy of love and wholeness.

This is a picture of Lady GaGa feeling the healing energy from the crystal! It does work! She is feeling the energy

Lady Gaga Is NSFW — Again — for Marina Abramović

We have no doubt that your interest in this video is based solely on its artistic merit and not Lady Gaga's shaved hooha. We therefore present to you a very NSFW video of Gaga "practicing the Marina Abramović method," a meditative technique requiring her to make prolonged Om-like sounds, walk naked and blindfolded through nature, embrace an enormous healing crystal, and finally lie in a bed of them. No, it is not a skit from Portlandia, but a promotion for the performance artist's Kickstarter campaign to raise $600,000 to start construction on the Marina Abramović Institute. We're pretty sure this will put her over the top…

Quartz Crystal's come with all G2 Organics Products! Because…..

 

QUARTZ crystals are  dynamic gems and so amazing !

I bet you did not know Manhattan is built on quartz, thats why I feel it holds the energy and power and attracts people from all over the world. Im not just saying this because I live in NewYork and love the city.

A great deal of scientific and metaphysical research has been done specifically, concerning these marvels of nature, and that the material is voluminous.

The information I am presenting here is essentials which should inspire you to do your own research to find out for yourself and see if you feel the energy!

Quartz is an igneous rock made out of molecules of silicon and oxygen atoms held together in a crystal pattern.

All of the silica and oxygen that make quartz came originally from theinsides of stars, and it shot out of the stars when the stars exploded as supernovas.

Then the silica formed a nebula, a dust cloud floating in space.

Nobody knows exactly how the silica got to Earth from the nebula, but once it did, it sank down under the lighter elements of the Earth ( oxygen, hydrogen and carbon), but stayed above the heavier elements (mainly iron).

So silica got stuck in the middle-not in the core, but not on the surface either. In the middle zone, it was hot enough to melt rock.

Most of the silica on Earth is still in the melted state. The vast majority of our precious  gemstones are nothing more than variations of quartz.

Quartz embodies an architectural and mathematical perfection based on the Golden Proportions, phi, just like the Great Pyramid.

The tips of all quartz crystals are angled exactly like the Great Pyramid at 36017 or 57.43 degrees.. The natural tendency of quartz is for harmony.

A quartz crystal takes over 10,000 years to form. Natural quartz crystals were often referred to by the ancient traditions as the veils of the earth", "frozen water" or "frozen light", combine the elements of silicon and water through a lengthy process involving heat and pressure.

Quartz crystals incorporate geometric precision and harmony which is why it's seen as the" Stone of Harmony".

The Ancient Egyptians well understood the mathematically precise and rigid structure of quartz and recognized it's ability to both harness and transmit spiritual power. 

A quartz crystal is a beautiful, perfect form. It contains within itself Harmony, Balance, Clarity and Perfection..

Now from the book Shifting Frequencies by Jonathan Goldman he says:

"Quartz crystals are considered sacred powerful tools in many different traditions and have been recognized as such for a very long time.

They have been utilized for their extraordinary abilities by magicians, shamans and light workers since recorded history and before as tools for healing higher consciousness and frequency-shifting".

"Quartz crystals have been found  as artifacts among the most ancient of archeological digs..and their use in Atlantis has been described by many writers".

 

From the most ancient of days quartz crystals have been used in metaphysical practices particularly as a strong talisman.

It was believed to have the power to ward off the "evil eye". As well as counteracting  and transforming negative vibes.

Metaphysical practitioners considered clear quartz as being the channel for metaphysical and cosmic energy.

The shaman, and other types of spiritual healers used clear quartz in their healing practices. I use the crystals everyday and do feel the energy from them. Naturally people always gravitate towards crystals, because they are not man made and do hold a energy.

Because quartz crystals in the main symbolized energy, and it helps the user to energize and focus on their prayers and thought, I personally know that when people receive a crystal they hold on to it, and years later, even thank me for it.  I always say it can't hurt can always help.

Debra Atlas: The Hickey Stick covers more than embarassing hickies

By Debra Atlas

Saturday, August 10, 2013I recently tested a product called The Hickey Stick, an organic two-step concealer/cover-up stick from G2Organics.

Used by both men and women, its thick, rich formula gives easy coverage. It works well to cover breakouts, scars, bruises, tattoos, razor cuts — and embarrassing hickies. It can even be used under eye shadow to conceal those dark circles.

Cherie Corso, one of G2Organics’ co-founders, says her daughter even uses The Hickey Stick to treat mosquito bites.

The Hickey Stick is made with non-toxic natural and organic ingredients. It contains no parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or lanolin, but includes ingredients such as rosemary, zinc oxide and Vitamin E.

Corso, an entrepreneur and a print model, and her partner, Marie Elena Lamarie, a finance major, entrepreneur and cosmetologist, take health and healing to heart. Since launching their company in 2009, they have become a leader in green beauty, producing safe, organic, eco-friendly, non-toxic products good for both consumers and the environment.

Both women are Reiki Master healers. A hands-on healing method, Reiki plays a part in all the products their company offers. All of their products are Reiki charged or imbued with Reiki healing energy.

Corso has been a guest on the Dr. Oz show, interviewed by the Wall Street Journal and other noted venues about her company and its natural products. She realizes that not everyone can do everything organic. But, she says, “If you do one or two things (green) in your beauty routine, you help lessen the impact of the chemicals you’re using on your body (and) in the environment.”

“Every little bit helps,” she said.

The Hickey Stick is a two-stick, two-step system. The first stick acts as a primer to mark what you want to conceal. The second stick neutralizes the first, to give even coverage. It’s available in both light and dark shades to match any skin tone.

Priced at $24.95 for two sticks, a portion of sales goes to help cancer research.

To learn more about this concealer or any of their other products, go towww.G2Organics.com.

The SMURFS 2 fun for the whole family! by Cherie Corso


Visual comedy, life lesson and cute little blue guys is a winning formula for cast and  Raja Gosnell  the director of The Smurfs 2. I saw the movie in NYC at a blue carpet screening, it was very exciting for my  daughter to meet the smurfs, okay I loved it too, they were so cuddly and cute!!  Hank Azaria who played Gargame was there too, he kills me, I have liked him since his roll in Pretty Woman with Julia Roberts, remember??  He walked into the room  with out a cape and said "Hello my little Smurfs", my ten year old loved it, some of the kids got scared but it was so funny. YES YES I wanted a picture, but  we stepped back and let the photogs do their thing. We took the moment, sometimes like all of us   we take everything  in through  camera, so we stayed in the moment and I just felt the energy. Honestly I was  "NY COOL" with Hank but could not contain myself when I ran in to Dan Abrams  legal analyst at  Dan Abrams (danabrams) on Twitter   ABC News Good Morning America  with his family. He is just a nice smart  man,

 I had to give him a crystal for continued  positive energy.  I just respect his legal opinion on  cases he always breaks it down and has a logical point of view. I just appreciate his authentisy  vs some of the blow hards I see and hear on TV.  Anyhow back to the movieThe Smurfs 2 | Official Movie Site | Sony Pictures 

The Smurfs  have been just smuffing since their 2011 big-screen outing, but there’s trouble stirring in their new adventure-comedy that will require their mix of  optimism and silly enthusiasm to resolve the wraith of Sorcerer Gargamel (Hank Azaria).

The movie had a vibe of happiness, and beloning to a family. I enjoyed the NewYork City scenes and Katy Perry   Katy Perry (katyperry) on Twitterwas just  the perfect! We all went to the   party  at Dylan's Candy Bar.

Summer is sweeter at Dylan's Candy Bar 

Sony Pictures | The Best in Movies, TV Shows, Games & Apps


 

The birthday of Smurfette’s (Katy Perry)   KATY PERRY // Official Website //  presents the opportunity for her to recall her conflicted origins – rather than a “true-blue” Smurf, I just love the picture above from the LA  event in THE SUN, she was actually Gargamels daughter and raised by Popa Smurf. Because she was always shown unconditional love and respect she was a true Smurf, but always had bad dreams about not being "a real Smurf". Gargamel (Hank Azaria)Hank Azaria (HankAzaria) on Twitter, has a evil plan to kidnap her from her enchanted-forest home to obtain the formula for the magical Smurf-essence that Papa Smurf (Jonathan Winters) used to originally blessed her with blue skin. Once he has the secret, Gargamel plans to power up a host of Naughties, Smurf-sized creatures he’s created, to help him take over the world. The kids in the theater loved and feared Gargamel. It reminded me of how I felt about Crella de Vil the antagonist from 101 Dalmatians.

So he sent  his Naughty daughter Vexy      (Christina Ricci)http://www.christinaricci.ws  to drag Smurfette through a magic portal and into the real world where he can  toy and manipulate her inherent identity issues. Papa Smurf and his mismatched extraction team consisting of Grouchy (George Lopez),http://www.christinaricci.ws Clumsy (Anton Yelchin) and Vanity (John Oliver) will have to portal to the live-action world to reunite in Paris with his beautiful sweet young family of Patrick (Neil Patrick Harris)  Neil Patrick Harris (NPHnews) on Twitter   and Grace (Jayma Mays) Winslow, their live-action counterparts from the original movie, if they’re to have any chance of rescuing Smurfette.

Belgian Smurfs comic-strip originator PierreCulliford adds some visual interest, with Paris as the backdrop for the Smurfs’ rescue and recovery mission, I did enjoy the backdrop of Paris but NYC is where the action is. I loved the use of crystals in the movie, finally the recognition of the power of crystals in being recognizes. Thank YOU!

The Smurfs director Raja Gosnell (Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Scooby Doo) understand the power of cuteness, and deliverers with the Smurfs’ big-screen return. With the understanding of entertaining adults and kids he entertained us the audience enjoyed  repeating lines, gags and life lessons. I likes the Smurf "talk" and the silliness, of the adjectives as names.  I was able to sit back with my family and relax as well as be entertained.  OMG I almost forgot to tell you to watch for this part….the "apartment scene" is so funny at the beginning of the movie with narsistic, self absorbed, parenting scene, when they give the little boy a Birthday party, is very funny. It personifies the "kookiness" and need for "PC" in parent's minds . I loved it, I wanted to jump up and scream YES YES see how nutty it's gotten.

 

In his final film role, Jonathan Winters reprises the beneficent Papa Smurf with the requisite twinkle in his voice, but compassionately understands Katie Perry’s bewildered, wounded and ultimately outraged Smurfette. Harris and Mays, as the parents of a young boy appropriately named “Blue” (JacobTremblay), acquit themselves good-natured enough, although it's Brendan Gleeson as Patrick’s well-intentioned but misunderstood stepfather, Vince Winslow, who is my favorite, shines throughout the movie even when he is a bird he is hysterical. Azaria ahain makes the movie, he is  brilliant  as the bumbelling wizard with the bad teeth.  The  unrelenting, team of Smurf rescuers featuring Lopez  George Lopez (_George_Lopez__) on Twitter  , Yelchin and Oliver were very funny.

Overall I loved this movie and also check out my favorite The Moms in Chicogo at the MAMARAZZI EVENT, http://themoms.com They were fantastic!

Hugh Jackman Delivers in The Wolverine and more!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mamarazzi Hugh Jackman and The Wolverine

 

 

 

 

I just love going to the movies, I love the shared experience with my family and being in a theater, AMC Loews 34th Street 14 – New York, New York 10001 – AMC Theatresespecially if its a thrilling movie, I love the 3D, the smell of popcorn,the big screen, going to the theater, finding a seat, putting on my 3D glasses and being transported. I know  today the home experience is so good, on your comfortable couch, with snacks, the family and the dog on your lap. It's sometimes hard to justify the  time ,effort and expense, to go to the movies, but trust me this movie is worth it.  The Wolverine | Official Movie Site | View Trailers | NOW PLAYING  The action scenes had us screaming and cheering in and  out of our seats. Hugh Jackman was exciting, his true energy and high frequency jumped off the screen. He humanizes, a comic character. If your not familiar with the comic, you will still enjoy this movie. This  does have , blood, a little swearing in the right places and a great story line. I liked the message about Karma and repaying debts and that sometimes things aren't as they appear and people have different motives. I think this  can open up conversation with your children in a exciting current way. In the movie the car of choice was the Audi  The Wolverine Teams Up With Audi For Promotional Content | Comicbook.com , I am in love with this car. The cars World Class reputation delivered! The chauffeured Audi picked us up and drove us around all day. We went to lunch and shopped on Madison Ave, as the car waited for us outside. Okay as a NewYorker, we see it all and are so use to seeing beautiful cars that most people don't even notice. I have to tell you my experience, everywhere we went in this car, heads were turned people even snapped pictures. We felt like movie stars, this car Audi delivered the whole experience. The performance of this car on the open road was far superior then my car. I personally would love to buy this car.

The Wolverine, 2013 American-Australian superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Wolverine, starring my favorite Hugh Jackman. I think  this movies one is the best, he brings a adrenalin filled performance that we viewed on the AMC Empire 25 3D theater was thrilling to watch, the claws, even the fashion Viper wore had me reeling. I will be sporting the black leather gloves with gold studs at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2014.

 Okay now lets get to the good part as promised," what Hugh Jackman was really like in person?" The Mamarazzi event hosted by The MOMS Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Gerstein  delivered him right to the theater (thanks girls). Security was tight, cameras filming. People snapping pictures. I was so lucky with a random seat I picked, he brushed right by me. He was tall and muscular, smelled very "clean" not heavily cologne, his energy was positive. I did my quick "energy Chakra scan", on him. I felt heat coming from his shoulders, I could tell he had a lot on his mind, he is a thinker, very smart. He handled the media and fans with grace and had a humble confidence. A genuine nice guy, a hard worker, family man. He talked about his family and not being away from them more then two weeks. I liked that. My daughter could not wait to ask him a question. She was brought to the front.

She asked "Would you ever like to be Wolverine?" He answered and said "sometimes!" He said he can get grumpy like anyone,  and  likes the power of the claws, all he does is have to show the claws. He asked Julia if she would like it too, all the kids gasped and said YES" We love to rweet and share a good experience Cherie Corso (cheriecorso) on Twitter
"There are so many areas of that Japanese story, I love the idea of this kind of anarchic character, the outsider, being in this world – I can see it anesthetically, too – full of honor and tradition and customs and someone who’s really anti-all of that, and trying to negotiate his way. The idea of the samurai, too – and the tradition there. It’s really great. In the comic book he gets his ass kicked by a couple of samurai – not even mutants. He’s shocked by that at first." Hugh Jackman The Wolverine (WolverineMovie) on Twitter
Overall I give this movie a A+ !! The Moms and kids loved the movie!!

How to protect your hair from Chlorine!! By Julia Corso

As a kid who loves to swim and spends a lot of time in the pool. I notice as temperatures climb , I find myself going for a cold dunk  in the pool. Swimming is most peoples  favorite summer activity. It's a body workout thats fun. But there is one bad side about swimming in the pool, it has so much chlorine 

 

"Chlorine is used as a disinfectant to kill harmful bacteria in the water. This keeps you from getting sick from E. coli and other nasty germs, but it also strips out the natural oils that protect your hair from damage and daily wear. Since I don't want my hair to turn into hay, I've learned to coat my strands with hair product before I jump into the pool." – MIN-JA LEE

so i have some tips so that cant happen 

1. put coconut oil in hair before and after swim

2.try Pantene pro-v bb cream 

3. shower imidetely after swim shampoo and condition an leave condoner until next swim TRY ONES BELOW

Ear Candling, Restore Balance Tap into YOUR inner power!! by Cherie Corso

Ear candling feel so good and you will be shocked when you see what comes out! I know it sounds scary to some when I say Im going to put a candle in your ear and light it on fire. Let me explain the history. "Ear candling/coning can be understood as an ancient healing modality – Atlantean, Mayan, Egyptian, Tibetan – which has many other healing practices, periodically spent time in "hiding". It was originally used in conjunction with initiation practices for spiritual leaders in order to strengthen their positions a s bearers of great truths and as beacons of light in the darkness. Ear coning was used to open the spiritual centers and to clear and cleanse the physical as well as emotional and other auric bodies. It was used in conjunction with other healing practices and assumed a co-creative position with these practices. Traditionally, conings were performed by master energetic healers who worked on the physical as well as intermediate planes.Conings were performed in the temples and usually occurred in a series of three, spaced strategically apart. The number of conings performed was individualized and depended upon either the amount of clearing which was necessary and/or the spiritual appetite of each person. Although seven conings were average, at times, as many as eleven conings were performed. Nine and eleven conings were considered to be aligned with the master numbers in numerology. Receiving nine or eleven conings symbolized achieving human perfection toward universal service Ear conings worked upon the physical body by detoxifying the sinus, lymphatic and other systems. Among other things, they provided clarity of hearing and vision, improvement in the sense of smell, taste and color perception as well as emotional stability and sharer mental functioning. In addition to working upon the physical body, coning worked directly with the chakra system to clear an strengthen the auric bodies as well. Traditionally, the first seven conings worked to clear and strengthen the physical body and the first seven layers of the auric field. Each coning would ALWAYS affect the physical body and then affect whichever auric layer needed most to be cleared at that moment. For example, the first coning affected the physical body and either the first auric layer (etheric body) or the second auric layer (the emotional body) or the third auric layer (the mental body-thought forms) or the fourth auric layer (the astral body) or the fifth auric layer (the etheric template-associated with sound healing) or the sixth auric layer (the emotional level of the spiritual plane) or the seventh auric layer (the mental level of the spiritual plane-past life band and present life plan).In Egypt, however. at various times, auric bodies were intercepted and provoked to release blocked energy in a sequence. For example, the first coning affected the physical body and the first auric layer, the second coning affected the physical body and the second auric layer and so on through the first seven conings. The eighth, ninth, tenth, and eleventh conings were performed in order to clear and strengthen the physical body and those bodies in the cosmic plane of existence – those crystalline bodies composed of extremely fine, high vibrations. These conings were thought to totally purify the physical body and to fine tune the auric field in order to allow one to resonate in the purist from in preparation for supreme service.It must be realized that coning was done simultaneously and coordinated with advanced haling practices using color, crystal, sound, and other soon to be revealed methods, to correct the obstructed natural flow of energy, balance the system, realign the spinal structure and cleans the body. These healing processes ritualistically purified individuals, allowing them to resonate to the highest vibrational frequencies. Realize, also, that upon your earth plane at this time, the number of conings required by individuals will be directly related to any other healing processes to which they are simultaneously exposed. I do ear cadling, in conjuction with Chakra Clearing. Many spa are now offering this servive. My favorite is Nicholas Day Spa and Salon in Pelham, NY. You will feel great!!

Mid Summer Night Dream, Beauty from the Refrigerator?

 
Well ladies (and gents), day light savings has officially arrived and you know what that means…one less hour of that precious beauty sleep we all crave. But have no fear, Im here to help! With every new day comes a whole new you, and what better way to start off this spring than with some uplifting spa treatments to get you relaxed, energized, and ready to take on the sun…and maybe that closest full of clothes you haven't cleaned out in five years. 
I have compiled a few of my favorite at home spa treatments (we love DIY!!) that will be sure to lift your spirits and rejuvenate your chakras, not to mention for almost no cost at all and they're totally organic!
