Celebrity Wednesday

Here on BFF we celebrate everything that ties Best Friends, and what couldn't be better than showcasing every week, our favorite celeb BFFs! Celebrities are constantly in the limelight and it's obvious that they need that one person they can lean on, which brings us to this week's favorite pair of Celeb BFFS:


Drew Barrymore & Ellen Page


They met on the set of Barrymore's directed movie "Whip It!" and have become instant BFFs ever since! In a recent interview with Marie Claire, the two bosom buddies talk about traveling together, "Traveling with her is an absolute blast. Drew always brings such a positive energy. We just went to Mexico for New Year's. We played Cranium, and I teamed up with [musician] Har Mar Superstar, and we were destroyed." says Page.

& there you have it! Got a suggestion for next week's Celeb Wednesday? Well drop us a line below!

Dear Nicole

TeenDiariesOnline.com is a site dedicated to everything for the teenage girl. From music, fashion, and advice, it’s no wonder that we found this site to be a girl’s true sanctuary. Within the site there is an anonymous advice column called Dear Nicole. It’s a place where you can reach out for a bit of advice or a little direction. We all know life has its little (or maybe huge) complications. That is why we here at BFF decided to team up with TD to present you with, “Dear Nicole”:
 

Dear Nicole,


My boyfriend and I have been dating for 15 months. My cousin lied and said that he snuck over the weekend my parents were at the beach, and that is NOT true. My parents now forbid me to see him. I didn't do anything wrong and since all of this happened, they treat me terribly. They treat me like I'm invisible and I'm a nobody. I'm 16. What do I do?


A. I would start with talking to my cousin about the lie. See if you can get your cousin to admit to your parents that they lied. Then try to talk to your parents about the situation and what you can do to earn their trust again, especially since the infraction they are concerned about didn’t even happen. Also let your parents know that you’ve been feeling invisible and like a ‘nobody’. If you don’t go to the heart of the problem (your parents) it will not be resolved. Hope this helps!
Nicole

Yep, you guessed it! It's another weekend and another weekend recap. So hold on tight as we give you part one of this week's BFF blog posts. Here we go!

On Music Monday, we gave you our Top 10 Favorite Christmas songs. Paul McCartney held the number 10 spot with "Wonderful Christmastime" but it was Darlene Love who took the number 1 spot with "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)". On Tuesday, Teen Diaries' own Nicole suggested that one should head over to their guidance counselor if unsure what career path to choose before heading to college.

Bart Simpson and Milhouse Van Houten took the stage as they claimed this week's fave pair of Celebrity BFFs for celebrity Wednesdays. Hey, just because they are animated doesn't mean they can't be awarded for being awesome best buds, right?!

Weekend Guide

Going with our Holiday theme of the Weekend Guide, we stumbled upon this article from the Pace Press titled "In No Particular Order, Ten Things to Do During the Holidays". We found it to be a cool list and thought it would be a great idea to share, especially to those who've just wrapped up finals! Enjoy :

The end of the semester is finally in sight. Winter holidays are approaching. Finals are ending. A month-long break is in your future. Life is good. But wouldn't your life be a little better if you had some suggestions for how to spend that long vacation?

10. Catch up. Since the semester is over, you might actually have some time to do what you want in the coming weeks. So make use of that time to do everything you really wanted to do during the semester : Read some books for fun. Go to the movies. You could even get ahead if you buy your books ahead of time and do some reading for next semester's courses (just kidding).

9. Reacquaint yourself with the outside world. Visit your old aunts, tell your friends that you are actually still alive, and find out what happened on your favorite TV show for the last month.

8. See the sights. If you get the chance, don't miss out on your opportunity to be a tourist and visit all the holiday displays around the city. Check out the Rockefeller Center tree. You might even check out the Origami Tree at the Museum of Natural History.

7. Party. Not that you'd procrastinate or anything, but now that you are done staying up until four in the morning writing papers and studying, why not stay up until four in the morning for a good reason? Come on, you know you want to paint the town red, grab a paintbrush!

6. Pad the resume. Do something you can put on your resume to impress prospective employers or grad school admissions committees. Consider getting a short internship at a friend or family member's place of business. Apply for some scholarships. Do some community service. Submit your novel for publication (sorry, English major). You get the idea.

5. Shop. Spend all the money (or all those gift certificates) that you got from whatever winter holiday you celebrate and spend it on cool stuff while you can. Do not wait until the end of break to spend this money. You will feel guilty and buy your books instead of that CD, bag, mp3 player, fill-in-the-blank, that you have been wanting all semester. This is not an appropriate way to spend your holiday cash.

4. Visit family and friends. Spend some time with your family while you can, because if you dorm other opportunities are minimal. While you're at it, why not look up those high school friends you haven't seen since . . . well dates aren't important, just make up for lost time.

3. Travel. Have you been dying to spend New Year's in Vegas? Did you leave your heart in San Francisco the last time you visited? Whatever the reason, if you like to travel, you probably have one or two exciting destinations on your holiday itinerary.

2. Get a job. Perhaps you are tired of being a broke college student. If so, you may want to get a job during your down time off in order to improve your financial situation.

1. Sleep. If you have fantastic time management skills, this might surprise you, but catching up on sleep is in fact the number one thing students want to do during their time off. So, much like a hibernating bear, you might want to try to stock up on sleep now before another cycle of papers and exams begins next semester.

Here on BFF we celebrate everything that ties Best Friends, and what couldn't be better than showcasing every week, our favorite celeb BFFs! Celebrities are constantly in the limelight and it's obvious that they need that one person they can lean on, which brings us to this week's favorite pair of Celeb BFFS:

Bart Simpson & Milhouse Van Houten


These trouble makers have been best buds since 1986, when the hit sitcom 'The Simpsons' premiered! Though Bart excels in pulling pranks on just about everyone, Milhouse is there by his side and encourages him along the way .. that is, until Bart gets caught


Watch what new antics these two get into every Sunday, at 8PM on Fox!

Dear Nicole

Dear Nicole,


I have a problem. I don't know how to choose a profession. Plus I am from a rural area and I don't want to study here after high school. I have one more year in school. Can you give me some advice on what to do next? How do I find out about my interests? HELP!?!



A: Great question. I would suggest you start with your guidance counselor at school. They should be able to point you in the direction you need to go regarding your interests and possible school or training programs. Now your school may not have a faculty member like a counselor who can help you with something like this. If that is the case, then you can find a local community college. Many community colleges actually have career centers. There they can offer you written inventories and other checklists that will help you figure out what path you may want to take. There are also many people who enter college without a declaring a major for at least a year so that they can figure out what they like and are good at. Internships are also a sure bet to help you figure out what industries may interest you and which ones you totally want to avoid! Hope this helps!

Nicole

Weekend Recap

Missed out on any posts this week? Well don't worry, we've got ya covered. Grab a seat and follow along!



Kid Sister was the music artist we felt you should listen to for Music Monday. Her funky beats and hip hop flows is what makes this artist's music ear-worthy! On Tuesday, TeenDiaries' very own Nicole, gave you all the heads up on what to do when you make a Frenemy rather than a friend. A true friend wouldn't make you pick her/him over anyone else. 

Justin Bieber and Usher danced their way in your hearts as they were this week's fave pair of Celebrity BFF's on Celebrity Wednesday. On our weekend guide, we gave you & your bff(s) an awesome holiday party to throw which we titled, "Ugly Christmas Sweater Holiday Party". You + friends + Ugly Sweaters and a camera ... could there be anything better?! On Friday we launched a brand new Twitter contest in which you guys have the chance to win a Mereadesso gift certificate and it ends TODAY @ 6PM EST!!!

Weekend Guide

In light of the Holiday Season, we here at BFF thought it would be best to surround this month's weekend guides with things that encompass the holiday theme. Last week we gave you a great Girls' Holiday Night out idea and for this weekend (for those of you who dare), you and your BFF(s) can set up an Ugly Christmas Sweater Holiday Party!


Decorate the house with some cute and funky holiday decoration. Cook up some good food or if you are on a budget, have your friends bring the food and you provide the drinks or vice versa. You can print up cute invitations or even send out e-invites through awesome sites such as pingg.com. Make sure you note the one, absolute rule : everyone MUST come in an ugly Christmas sweater. If not, then what's the point of having the party?! Imagine all of the hilarious pictures you and your friends will be able to laugh at for years!


Cooking food and decorating sounding like too much work? For those of you 21 and over, you can even opt for an Ugly Christmas Sweater Holiday Bar - Hop. The laughs will increase as all of you will be seen in ugly sweaters out in public!


Let us know what you have planned for this weekend. Drop a line below!

We all know life has its little (or maybe huge) complications. That is why we here at BFF decided to team up with TD to present you with, “Dear Nicole”:

Dear Nicole,


One of my friends has been constantly telling me that I've changed in a bad way. I've asked many other people if I have, and they all say NO! This friend has also said that my BFF and I aren't meant to be BFFs, which ticks me off a lot. Now she's saying I have to sacrifice my friendship with 5 people in order to have her accept me. She believes that I am a bad person because of those 5 people I hang out with, which I don't think is right at all. Many people have said that they like me more this year than last. She is the only person telling me bad stuff. What should I do?


A: Sounds like you may be dealing with a frenemy more than a friend. I would go with what most people are saying, especially your close friends and family. Sometimes negative and even jealous people come into our lives. They stunt our growth with the mean things they say and do. Don’t let this happen to you. Now, if she has a point and there are some things you feel you may need to improve on, fine. But sacrificing friends for her to “accept” you is ridiculous. What will she need to maintain your friendship next… your blood? That is not how friendships are formed and that is not what friends do. Be honest and upfront with her about how she is making you feel, and then leave it alone. Not everyone is healthy enough to sit in the front row of your life. Maybe she needs a ‘parking lot’ position. In other words, either she shapes up or ships out! Hope this helps!

Nicole

Music Monday

Based in Chicago, Melisa Young a.k.a. Kid Sister, is a rap artist best known for her hit "Pro Nails" featuring Mr. Kanye West. As of Fall 2009, Kid Sister has finished recording her debut album "UltraViolet", which was originally named "Dream Date". According to DJ A-Trak, "I think a lot of people are going to be surprised with the fact that there's a bunch of raw hip-hop records on there. It's not all up tempo clubby stuff. I think a lot of people are going to be impressed with her growth also because when she made a lot of the records that people have heard by now, she was just starting to rap."

Weekend Recap - Part 2

Let's recap the ending of this past week on the BFF blog! Get ready 'cause we're starting NOW :


Guest blogger Sammi Hanratty from the family film, "The Greening of Whitney Port" stole the mic on Celebrity Wednesday as she shared with us how her and her BFF Kaitlyn met and how they became such great BFFs!

Thursday's Weekend Guide gave you a fab idea on what you and your girls can be doing this weekend : Girls' Night Holiday Party. Eat some dinner (whether at your place or at your favorite restaurant), make some chic cocktails at home, pop in your favorite Holiday movie, and the most important key to making this party AWESOME : don't forget to invite us!



REBELDNCE was featured on Fashion Friday. It's a line created by new and upcoming designer, MaiKhanh Bertrand. The line is for those described as 'urban nomads' and the bold prints and style will definitely make one stand apart from the crowd.

Weekend Recap - Part 1

Missed out on some BFF posts this week? It's okay (we forgive you). We've taken some time out and created for you lovely people a 2 part weekend recap! Fasten your seat belts because here we go :



On Monday, we were in the New York spirit and decided to make our Music Monday choice Jay-Z & Alicia Key's "Empire State of Mind." If you haven't heard it, you have been living in a cave!! you better do so now as the song is HOT HOT HOT! So HOT that the Yankees - World Champs Baby! - decided to make that their anthem during the world series!


Tuesday was your day to get your life questions answered by our friend from Teen Diaries, Nicole. You all wanted to know how to deal with a bully without getting into an argument or fight, or how to avoid a fight all together and she gave you some pretty good advice -- lay low! Unless they steal your BFF's milk money, then it's time to ... *cracks knuckles* -- HAHA we're just joking! Bullies usually pick on people for attention, so the least attention you give them, the better!


Part 2 of our recap will be on tomorrow! So stay tuned!

Weekend Guide

Stumped on what you and your BFF could be doing this weekend? Well don't worry, that's what we're here for! Every week we'll be giving you and your BFF ideas on some fun things to do this weekend.


Today's idea is : Girls' Night Holiday Party

What a perfect reason to tie the Holiday's with your BFFS! Leave the holiday stress behind and gather up your girls as you wine & dine and enjoy some last minute gift wrapping together! Here's a mock up itinerary for the night. Feel free to change it the way that best fits for you and your friends :

1. Start the night off by having dinner. You can provide a home cooked meal, in which your friends can help and bring dishes as well OR you can dine at one of your favorite restaurants. Usually a lively place like Applebees, TGIFridays, a steakhouse, etc. are prime choices.

2. Bring the girls back to the house and you guys can whip up your very own holiday cocktails. The best thing to do is to Google cocktail recipes. Some search terms include "Party cocktails", "Holiday cocktails", etc.

3. Another cute idea would be for you and your gal pals to collaborate on some Holiday traditions, such as creating a Gingerbread house or even baking some fun holiday cookies!

4. Watch Holiday movies. Heat some popcorn and pop in a DVD. You can either rent a movie, or tell your BFFS to each bring one of their face Holiday movies and you all can decide then!

Dinner + Fun Cocktails + Holiday Treats + Movies = FUN FUN FUN!

Can it get any better? ;)

Have some ideas of your own? Feel free to drop us a line below!

Celebrity Wednesday!






Guest blogger Sammi Hanratty, star of the upcoming film 'The Greening of Whitney Brown' has decided to share her story with us about how her and her BFF, Kaitlyn, became Best Buds:


I met my best friend Kaitlyn Dever on the set of "American Girl: Chrissa Stands Strong." From the first day we met, we instantly became friends. We like hanging out together and just making up crazy voices and characters. We also like making movies of the different characters and then editing them for our families to watch. Kaitlyn is someone I can trust and I know she will always be there for me; she's the best!! That's why Kaitlyn's my BFF!

Check out a couple of pics from Sammi on set of "The Greening of Whitney Brown" below :

Music Monday

For all you New Yorkers out there, today's Music Monday is dedicated to Hip-Hop Jay-z's hit "Empire State of Mind" which features the talented Alicia Keys. The song combines elements of Hip-Hop with a Frank Sinatra twist, making the song all about New York pride. This song is such a hit that not only has it been #1 on the Top 100 for weeks but it also was the NY Yankees national anthem during the World Series! Jay-Z and Alicia Keys not only got to perform this song during one of the games but also during the Yankee parade as well! We here at BFF think it's safe to say that "Empire State of Mind" has become this generations' New York national anthem!

Fashion Friday : THE WAFFLES GIRLS REVIEW TWILIGHT FASHION!

We all love New Moon. But in our collective Team Edward / Team Teenwolf haze, what often gets lost is the brilliant costume design and fashion you find in these films, which for fashionistas like us, is a real crying shame! So when BFF asked us to drop in for Fashion Friday, we here at Waffles+Falafels didn't hesitate to pick New Moon fashion as our topic of choice, We hope you enjoy our spotlight on these fashion-forward monsters. And if not, just look at the pictures dammit!







Good news for albinos, librarians and those with deathly low blood circulation- tans are out, pale is in! Interested in getting that ghostly gleam? We recommend staying out of the sun for at least 7 weeks or wearing SPF 5millionbilliontrillion to ensure that pasty complexion, because, let's face it; nothing goes better with your weekend outfit than a layer of heavily caked on baby powder. Nothing. - Hillary Bankz




Fashion forecasters and tastemakers have long predicted the inevitable marriage between fashion and technology so it's nice to see the costume department of New Moon really embracing this emerging trend. While still at least a season away from hitting runways, expect to see skin suits like the ones above (in most body types and ethnicities) on the racks of major retailers soon, and don't be surprised if "abs" becomes 2010's must-have look for back to school. - Icey Ana








From the bathroom to the runway, expect to see an emergence of the bathrobe hitting Paris, New York, and London in late 2010. Not only does the bathrobe compliment all figures, it encompasses comfort and style to create a look that is hard to resist. Dust off yours and try it with a skin suit today for a truly classic look. - Hood Charlotte




This season, black is the new black, so the less sleep you get the better, because everyone knows red goes really well with black, and this season red eyes are hot hot hot! Can't function without your beauty sleep? Don't stress, You can stilll achieve this look by throwing dirt in your eyes regularly. - Hillary Bankz






It's rare you see a fashion trend held over from a previous season, or multiple seasons for that matter. But when it does happen, it's pretty safe to say we have the makings of a new classic look on our hands; one that will define a generation. And thanks to Twilight, we finally have it! That's right, the nineties had the Rachel Haircut and we have none other than... the KStew Forehead! Expect soccer moms to start rocking this soon- OH SWEET SKULL! - Icey Ana






Got a take on the Twilight takeover of the fashion industry? Leave a comment and let us know!






xoxo

Celebrity Wednesday!


Here on BFF we celebrate everything that ties Best Friends, and what couldn't be better than showcasing every week, our favorite celeb BFFs! Celebrities are constantly in the limelight and it's obvious that they need that one person they can lean on, which brings us to this week's favorite pair of Celeb BFFS:

Camilla Belle & Maria Sharapova

The Russian tennis champ and The 10,00 B.C. star have turned into BFFs as of late. You can catch these two gal pals attending couture fashion shows and industry events together. They even decided to travel to Europe with one another! Both Maria and Camilla turned 21, and Maria can be quoted saying, "I have had to deal with a lot of ups and downs in my life, on and off the court. But the number one thing is not to be disappointed by that, or by losses, or by negative things, things here and there. You have to find a way to keep your head even though it’s pretty tough.” And that is why she has her BFF Camilla to help keep her head on straight.

Dear Nicole ...

TeenDiariesOnline.com is a site dedicated to everything for the teenage girl. From music, fashion, and advice, it’s no wonder that we found this site to be a girl’s true sanctuary. Within the site there is an anonymous advice column called Dear Nicole. It’s a place where you can reach out for a bit of advice or a little direction. We all know life has its little (or maybe huge) complications. That is why we here at BFF decided to team up with TD to present you with, “Dear Nicole”:

Dear Nicole,

I want to be more social. That has been my goal for a long time because I've been quiet for years in school. I'm in high school right now, and I feel as thought I'm confident in being beautiful, smart, and successful, but I can't figure out why I'm so quiet. HELP!

A. One thing I had to learn in life is that it’s perfectly okay to be me. For example, I’m pretty quiet too. I don’t go to many parties or clubs. I love to be outside doing things most girls my age don’t like to do like fishing, hiking, swimming, horseback riding, etc. For the longest time, I used to beat myself up for not wanting to rush to the next Jay Z concert but guess what ~ that is who I am. Those are my interests and that is OKAY. I say that to emphasize to you that it’s OKAY to be quiet. It sounds like you know that you are Beautiful, Smart and Successful and that’s all that matters. Some of the most profound and interesting people don’t speak a lot. But when they do speak, its something poetic and amazing. Maybe that’s you. If you are still interested in getting out there a bit more, join a few social clubs at school and start there. That is a good way to speak up a bit more and meet some pretty interesting people. Hope this helps!

;)
