Kristen Bell in "When in Rome"

Kristen Bell in "When in Rome" looks pretty suspicious of her flowers.

Smart shopping includes knowing what movies are worth your time seeing in theaters. Movies put out by Disney are pretty much guaranteed to warm your heart, and often are movies that will also entertain your kids (bingo!). The 2010 lineup for Walt Disney Motion pictures looks pretty great to us.  It includes two movies with Kristen Bell (When in Rome, You Again), another installment of the beloved Toy Story saga, and Rapunzel.

WHEN IN ROME Release date: January 29

ALICE IN WONDERLAND Release date: March 5

THE LAST SONG Release date: April 2

OCEANS Release date: April 22

PRINCE OF PERSIA: ?

THE SANDS OF TIME Release date: May 2 ... Read More

Smart Tips from Kristen Bell

Kristen Bell was recently spotted out and about shopping for flowers. Can you spot all of the SMART elements in this candid photo?

#1 Bend it like Bell: She’s bending at the knee’s! Seriously, it’s so much less strain than if she’d just bent down over at waist.

#2 Work with children and pets:  Bell is taking time to talk to strangers – and she gets bonus points for taking time to interact with a kid. Talking and spending time with kids, pets or babies can brighten the outlook on your day. And that smile looks genuine to me!

#3 Block the glare:  Sunglasses help if you’re an A-list celebrity who doesn’t want to draw too much attention to yourself, admittedly we may not have this same problem.

#4 Be green: Like any responsible shopper, Bell is using an eco-friendly reusable bag for her shopping.

#5 Versatile jewelry: Notice her statement necklace? That’s something she can wear with fancier stuff, too. Adding it to her simple outfit dresses it up a bit.

Kristen Bell Gives Us a Hairdo Idea

kristen bell when in rome hair

I used to have a scrapbook of cute hair ideas using magazine pulls that I’d arrange in a binder. Yea…I’m kind of weird. (Is it weird I also had fashion, decor, and makeup idea binders?) But, whatever! It’s helpful. Sometimes you forget what to do with your hair other than the basic things you ALWAYS do. One hairdo I like that is SO easy to do is something that Kristen Bell has actually worn on the illustrious red carpet.

The technique for the hairstyle is to pull up the middle front section of your hair and clip it – either to the side or straight back. (This is a great hairstyle to use for showing off earrings.) Then you collect the remaining hair and pull it all over to the side and loop it there. You can make it really casual by just using an elastic band and looping your hair in a half pony-tail. If you curl your hair first the entire effect will look a bit fancier. And you can also use one of those fabric flowers on an elastic band to make it look great.

A variation on this is to pull your hair back in a clip as I already said, and then separate the remaining hair into low pigtails anchored to the front, under your ears.

Yet ANOTHER variation is to use a headband instead of clipping the top part of your hair back. Follow as ... Read More
