привет! The Winter Olympics are here and it is time for an update on which olympians to watch out for so that you don’t miss the moments that will go down in the record books. At this year’s Olympic games in Sochi, there is no shortage of athletes, young and old, capable of securing their spot in sports history. You owe it to yourself to be part of the excitement and to witness some of the most memorable performances that only come around every two years. With that said, here is a list of four athletes that are sure to impress you and give an incentive to email the YouTube videos to your friends who have missed out:
Yulia Lipnitskaya- At just 15 years old, this Russian ice skater will leave you with a breath-taking performance like you have never witnessed. With such incredible precision and flexibility, this Olympics, Lipnitskaya will be proving the world and judges with her notoriously flawless performance that she is deserving of the gold medal. Her young age and fluid movement gives her an advantage over older girls who have to use more force and are less flexible. Lipnitskaya is ready to become the single star of these Games as she is fighting to win an individual gold medal in Sochi.
Zdeno Chara: A professional ice hockey defenseman, Chara is the man with a competitive advantage. At 6’ 9”it is uncommon for players to be so tall. Known for his history of destroying the opposing teams forwards, Chara is the current captain of the Boston Bruins and one of a few Europeans born to win a Stanley Cup. Chara will be representing the Slovakian team at the Olympics this year. Ironically, his first game will be against the United States on February 13th. Keep an eye out to see how this defensemen uses his knowledge of the USA hockey team strategies to his team’s advantage.
If you have not heard already, today is Super Bowl Sunday. The one day out of the year where American’s take pride in cheering on their beloved football teams in the championship for the world title. With an average viewing audience of 111 million and both a beer and some wings in your hands, brands are on the prowl to get your attention because you are not getting up from your couch anytime soon.
With online leaks spreading across the web, this year’s ads priced at $4 million a minute seem to be ranging from pups and ponies to wings and Muppets. If football has never really been your area of knowledge, no worries, because the top plays are not going to be all your colleagues will be talking about on Monday.
Here are the top 5 ads you should lookout for tonight just incase you’re feeling left out on the whole football talk ordeal:
Budweiser: Puppy love is in the air! This time featuring a pup that cannot give up on the love and affection from his master. Their unbreakable bond and adorable friendship goes straight to your heart.
Cheerios: After successfully launching their first commercial featuring an interracial family, Cheerios has added new family members to join the fun. The fictional family made up of a black dad, white mom and their young daughter depict the changing U.S. population and will be the first time Cheerios makes a showing in the Super Bowl.
Bud Light: Arnold Schwarzenegger is back and he is just about ready to show you how young and fit he still is. In the “Arnold Zipper” ad, Schwarzenegger will be playing a ping-pong match and the world is ready to see the results.
Axe: It is time to cuddle up and watch. Axe’s new transcendent message “Make Love Not War” will warm your heart and put you in the February Valentines mood if you are not already. Be prepared to feel a bit of suspense in the beginning, however sit back and let the plot unfold. Very well done, this commercial is bold, comical and beautiful.
Volkswagen: Anything you have ever wanted to see in an ad is put into one. Literally. German scientist, babies, puppies, Carmen Electra, cake, balloons, a muscle man, the list goes on. It is truly the ultimate game day commercial.
This Super Bowl does not have to be your turn to fumble. Kick it off by using some great inside information to enjoy true entertainment of the evening. Both comical, compelling and heart warming it is the one time you won’t want to skip through the commercials.
More Hot Chocolate- Chocolate was introduced to the Europeans in the early 1500s. Since it was introduced in Spain, people began to serve it sweetened and hot. Taking over 100 years to spread across Europe, the evolution has left us with many new recipes. Some like it hot by adding chili peppers or others like it to be thicker by adding crème. It can be surprising how many ways there are to drink hot chocolate, and we all know nothing tastes better on a snowy day. If you want to add some marshmallows and sit by an open fire, embrace it. These few winter months are the only time it is seasonally appropriate and here’s a link to my favorite recipe: http://goo.gl/iu0whf
Winter is here and trust me, baby it is NOT bad out there. The cold helps us indulge into life’s better offerings! So, take out that phone because it is time for a Insta pic, the cold weather won’t be around forever, you know.
A few days ago the world was given the opportunity to watch as Hollywood walks, poses, drinks, laughs, presents, and accepts awards for their outstanding performances over the year. The Golden Globes was the place any actor or actress wanted to be last Sunday night.
While their acting jobs were obviously one topic of discussion, it certainly wasn’t the only one. Some other honorable mentions included: fashion and the classic, “who are you wearing?” question. Sources such as E! News was all over it covering everything from the nail polish “Mani Cam” to the height of the heel. As well as the debate to rid of the stage all together and just have drop down mics at each table. I’m not the only one that thought the walk up takes up a good 10% of show, and when you have multiple Sunday night shows to watch c’mon, lets trim the fat people! Let us not forget about the comedians of the group. Every good award show starts with one thing, a funny host, and this years GG”s we had two. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler stole the show with their jokes and jabs at fellow colleagues. Matt Damon received an extra dose of “love” from Fey and Poehler as well as Bridesmaids actress, Melissa McCarthy believing she in fact was Matt Damon.
We all know watching is fun, especially a little later into the night once the drinks start flowing, but it can also be a task keeping up with everything. As a viewer, you need to have just about every form of social news out and ready. You’ve got the Globes on TV, twitter on your phone, Facebook on your tablet, and all the entertainment news websites pulled up in separate tabs on your computer. Believe me I know it can get pretty hectic, but this year I decided to tone it down a notch. Instead, I curled up on the couch, wine glass in hand and watched. No phone or laptop around, I just sat and let the program unfold and shockingly enough, it was enjoying. Now don’t get me wrong because boy did I still get my fix of who’s on the hot and not list with a special thanks to, drum roll please… Resultly. I went to my profile and added a couple new interests. I got all the results I needed from my usual entertainment, fashion, and beauty experts.
Resultly makes it easy to keep up with Hollywood, and as we all know, things change by the minute there. So remember, for the next award show, celebrity meltdown, or latest makeup or breakup, Resultly’s got you covered.

I was 17 years old when I heard Bruno Mars, “ Just the Way you are” and he has been my melodic go-to artist ever since. I became fascinated with him; wanting to know anything and everything about him. If you’re wondering at this point if Bruno Mars was my teenage celebrity crush you’re totally right! Bruno is my Elvis, or my James Dean; he’s perfect. I mean come on his nickname was “Little Elvis”! What can I say? The man’s got swag.
While his stage name might be Bruno Mars, 28 years ago he was named Peter Gene Hernadez after his father. So, where does this Sacha Baron Cohen meets outer space name come from? The chubby wrestler, Bruno Samartino, inspired “Bruno” because as a child, Peter wasn’t exactly the smallest ant on the farm either. He added “Mars” as his last name for some extra pizzazz, which is fitting because he is out of this world isn’t he?
I was encompassed in everything about Bruno. I looked all over the Internet, went to libraries (yes, they do still exist), bookstores, even CD stores (also commonly mistaken for ancient ruins), to learn everything I could about this hunk. While he might be a 13 time Grammy Award nominee, and a Billboard Music Award winner for Top Radio Song, as well as my personal favorite song among many other honors, I think it’s safe to say after all that running around I was more exhausted than he could’ve been!
So, thanks to hearing a little bit about this app, Resultly, I was intrigued to know if they could tell me more about my man than I already knew. After creating my profile I typed in “Bruno Mars” and let the notifications flow. From concert tickets and tour dates to song announcements and news releases, Resultly showed my research skills up.
My 17 year-old self hasn’t evolved much as One Direction is my latest Resultly follow; you know you could use a little Harry Styles in your life don’t deny it. But, truth be told, I simply love the sit back and let the info come to you lifestyle that Resultly allows.

The holiday season is an exciting time for everyone. Families get together and it’s the happiest time of the year. This fun also comes with a lot of pressure unfortunately, you have to think of and find something to buy for the whole family.You can’t forget to buy one of your cousins something; oops! And now you have to worry about buying a belated holiday gift. Usually those who are trying to buy gifts for their loved ones head to the nearest mall and spend hours desperately looking for the perfect present. I love going shopping at the mall, dont get me wrong! Resultly brings the mall to me though! For example, my dad loves watches, my mom loves handbags, and my brother loves soccer.

Happy New Year! This is what it’s about: saying goodbye to the old year and bringing in the new one. Each year we look forward to this date and time. We all want to start of fresh but, is 2014 really going to be the year of big change?
Maybe. Each year we look to change the quality of our life. We seek for different alternatives that can save us time and let us enjoy all of what life has to offer. The experiences we choose to focus on and enhance are the time spent with our loved ones, personal development and giving back to the community. The truth is it can be hard. Lets face it; we all are only human and living in a world that only offers 24 hours in a day. It can be difficult. Now, for one second what if I told you that YOU are capable of being that person you envision yourself to be. What if you found out the only thing stopping you is yourself? Close your eyes for a second.
Open and welcome to a world where we are able to improve our lives. What we need to focus on is baby steps and I’m not referring to the ones your toddler takes. I am talking about the real deal. I am referring the kind of steps that lead you to the big thing: that instant AHA! and something that really leaves you in the moment. But maybe we can look at it from a baby’s perspective. After all, it’s a place in time we all have been.
In 24 hours we can change the way we live. We just need to become more informed of how to do it more effectively. The first step is to literally get up. Not much can be done sitting in the same environment that no longer inspires you. We need to start thinking about what new experiences in life taste like and how these new experiences make us feel. I’m not suggesting going to the bathroom and playing in the toilet water or going to the kitchen and dumping a bowl of spaghetti on your head. I am saying we live in a world that is maximized in communication and offers endless ways to get places efficiently. We no longer have to sail the ocean blue for months on end or call up the Wright brothers for a quick aircraft rental. We are literally able to travel anywhere we want. The best news is we know the earth is round. We are not going to fall off the end of the earth!
We can just keep on going.
With the Internet and social media we can easily communicate our new personal experiences to encourage others and make them aware of the beauty that exists in the world. We can endlessly search for new deals and opportunities that will lead us to life changing experiences, even on a budget. What is surprising are the times when online deals influence us to click on destinations we had never considered before. Call it fate, it might as well be.
Do not worry, changing your environment does not leave you with anything to lose. This can be done in the simplest of ways such as traveling to work a different way than usual. You’ll be surprised when you notice that delicious ice cream shop or a beautiful view that leaves you feeling inspired. These are the types of experiences that keep bringing you back to a happy moment in time and encourage you to brighten up the world with a just a positive outlook and a smile.
You are one baby step from starting 2014 on the right foot. Literally. Keep your head up and do not worry about keeping your balance. Even a fall can lead you to finding that toy under the shelf you lost 3 years ago. The opportunities are endless. Happy 2014 and Happy Travels!
California is the place to go this holiday vacation. Sure, it may not be what you where thinking about when your neighbor was talking about her exquisite trip to Paris. But here is why it is time to roll with the motion of the ocean, put your feet up and enjoy the beautiful adventures Cali has to offer!
The Golden State is filled with a vast variety of landscape. From mountains to valleys, from snow to sunshine, the views are amazing. Anywhere you go you are bound to come across beautiful scenery easy enough to fool anyone you were hiking the Alps or surfing Avon Beach in Great Britain. See any difference?
The truth is after this holiday season we will all need a getaway. The last thing we need is to expose ourselves to some embarrassing moments. Being Santa’s elf at the holiday party was enough!
Traveling can be expensive, especially after having to spend your entire holiday budget impressing the in-laws. But, we all only have a few days out of the year to really stop and seize the beauty in the world. What some of us forget is that we do not have to go really far. We are all within reach of experiencing some of the most fascinating natural landscapes reminding us just how much more there is to see out there! The time to create those memories finding your way to the top of the Hollywood sign or celebrating your first successful 5 sec. standing on the surfboard after endless times falling down is today!
Finding the best deals for a flight are easy! With Resultly you can create a new interest, in this case being Travel. Type in your destination, the days you want to leave, and price. If you want to do a round-trip or a one-way get-a-way, that is up to you! We could all use a little time to escape after the holidays. So it is time to start practicing saying dude, gnarly and totally chill. California is waiting for you and it is time to get this trip rolling!
After years of luck and getting off the hook with “work projects” and “sickness” the odds were against you this time…Thanksgiving is at YOUR house this year. Shoot! There is no greater pleasure than having to out beat Grandma Sally’s phenomenal homemade cooking and impressing the in-laws. Frantic, you grab your cookbook, covered with wine residue from that first meal you attempted in college. You open it up only to realize why you haven’t been using it in the first place. Where do most of these ingredients even come from? You’re not some all-star celebrity chef! With the holiday just a few days away, you can’t help but to think that you are just as doomed as a Thanksgiving turkey. There must be a better way.
Holidays a time to be joyful and THANKFUL for the things you do have. Luckily for you, you’re not alone.
