Singles

Now, dating website for couples to spice up their love life.

A New York-based dating website is reaching out to rev up the love lives of city slickers who are already matched up, by providing pre-planned dates.HowAboutWe caters to couples who are too busy — or too lazy — to plan their own dates.

“We’re a modern love company,” co-founder Brian Schechter told the New York Daily News.HowAboutWe for Couples is a spinoff of the company’s popular HowAboutWe dating site for singles, where date-seekers pitch a date idea and see if anyone bites.

Schechter got the idea for the couples’ site after noticing singles were deactivating their accounts once they met someone.
But he said that they kept coming back because they were looking for inspiration for their own dates.

They realized that people who are in relationships are still looking for wonderful date ideas.
On HowAboutWe for Couples, the dates are already planned.Favorites include “Peanuts About You,” a date to a peanut butter specialty shop in the West Village, and “Scratch That,” a DJ lesson for two.

For 18 dollars a month, couples can choose from a selection of pre-planned dates.Some are free, but more extravagant dates — like a two-night getaway in the Finger Lakes region — cost extra.
Since it launched in November, more than 2,000 couples have signed up for the service, which is only available in New York, with plans to launchsoon in San Francisco.

Represent

4. In 2009, Rita auditioned in front of Andrew Lloyd Webber to represent the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest. Deciding it wasn’t for her, she walked out of the audition before even finding out whether she had been successful. Rita recently stated that she had no regrets, saying that if she had done Eurovision her “career would be over”. Her comments prompted retaliation from eventual winner Sugababe Jade Ewen, who hit back saying that “some manage to sleep their way to success”. Miaow! Claws away ladies!

5. Signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label by the big man himself when she was just 17, Ora is in good company and has schmoozed with the likes of Beyoncé, Rihanna and will.i.am. Are you jealous yet? If not, we can carry on…The-Dream, Kanye West, Chris Martin, Drake…

6. For single ‘Shine Ya Light’ Ora went back to her roots and filmed the video in Pristina, Kosovo. Despite moving to the UK when she was still a baby, Ora has a huge fanbase in her birthtown and says that the immense attention and support from the public when she was filming the video made her feel “like Princess Diana”.

Closing Ceremony

Olympic Closing Ceremony: Spice Girls’ fashion.

We take a look at the fashion choices of each of the Spice Girls from last night’s Olympic Closing Ceremony.
The Olympics last night finally drew to a close, and it most certainly went out with a bang.
We waited with breath that was baited for the rumours to come true and we finally got to see The Spice Girls together and performing once again.
They most certainly didn’t disappoint. The bedazzled Hackney cabs, the energy, the outfits it was everything we could have hoped for and in all honesty we didn’t want it to end.
The costumes that they decided upon were updated Spice Girl fashion that stayed true to each of their own persona.
There was rumours last week that they would all be wearing Giles Deacon, but this proved untrue. However, Victoria Beckham, Posh Spice did.
She chose a strapless gown, obviously in black, with tiers, ruffles and gold embroidery. The dress was custom made for the event, but was inspired by the designer’s Fall 2012 collection.
Baby Spice, Emma Bunton, went for a cute pink dress by Maggi Cooke. The mini dress featured structured glitter-covered shoulders with a deep-pplunging neckline. Silver sparkling peep-toes and glossy blonde waves completed her look.
It was as sweet as she is.
My favourite look had to be Melanie Chislom, Sporty Spice. Her outfit was perfect and she looked stunning. She’s wowed me recently with her fashion choices.
The singer was dressed by JD Sports, in a white jumpsuit with side split pants and a silver sparkling waistband which was designed by the leading sports fashion retailer. She paired the outfit with a pair of on-trend Silver Wedged trainers.

I must admit that I hoped and prayed that Geri Halliwell, aka Ginger Spice, would don her infamous Union Jack dress, but alas it was not to be.
Instead she insporated the flag into her red Suzanne Neville strapless mini dress which featured gold detailing. She paired the look with a beautiful Halo & Co gold filigree tiara and a pair of Isabel Marant gold glitter ‘Dicker’ ankle boots.
Melanie Brown, Mel B, Scary Spice tweeted before the event that her hair was ”Scary” and she didn’t disappoint. She looked amazing.
It has to be said that she looked as though she enjoyed herself most out of the girls and was definitely the standout in her Zuhair Murad jumpsuit.
The nude skin-tight look was embroidered with intricate gold-sequin detailing. She paired the look with a pair of gold heels.
They all looked amazing, but like I said before why can’t they just reform once again?
Did you enjoy their performance?
