Jayne Mansfield’s Pink Palace

In November 1957, shortly before her marriage to Mickey Hargitay, Mansfield bought a 40-room Mediterranean-style mansion formerly owned by Rudy Vallée at 10100 Sunset Boulevard in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles Much of the investment to buy the house came from the $81,340 ($685,318 in 2016 dollars) she inherited from her maternal grandfather Elmer Palmer. Mansfield had the house painted pink, with cupids surrounded by pink fluorescent lights, pink furs in the bathrooms, a pink heart-shaped bathtub, and a fountain spurting pink champagne, and then dubbed it the “Pink Palace”. Hargitay, a plumber and carpenter before getting into bodybuilding, built a pink heart-shaped swimming pool. Mansfield decorated the Pink Palace by writing to furniture and building suppliers requesting free samples. She received over $150,000 ($1,263,803 in 2016 dollars) in free merchandise, paying only $76,000 ($640,327 in 2016 dollars) for the mansion itself. It was still a large sum, when the average cost of a house at the time was under $7,500 ($63,190 in 2016 dollars). The Pink Palace was sold and its subsequent owners have included Ringo Starr, Cass Elliot and Engelbert Humperdinck. In 2002, Humperdinck sold it to developers, and the house was demolished in November of that year.

4 Moves That’ll Pull Your Abs In Better Than A Waist Trainer

Trainer Larysa DiDio created the fastest, most effective waist workout that those of us in favor of, ya know, breathing comfortably, could do instead.
This workout hits your obliques hard—those muscles on the sides of your abs that help create a curvy silhouette—and only takes 10 minutes.

How to do it: Perform each exercise for the time stated, resting for 30 seconds between moves. Repeat the entire circuit twice.

Oblique Static Hold

Start lying on one side as shown, legs extended and stacked. Raise your legs a few inches off the floor, hold for 1 to 2 seconds, and then lower them back to the floor. Continue for 20 seconds. Switch sides and repeat for another 20 seconds on the opposite side.
Expert tip: Squeeze your abs as your lift and lower your legs.

Side-to-Side Leg Drops

Lie on your back with your legs extended over your hips, knees slightly bent, and arms out to your sides with palms facing down. Keeping your knees together, slowly drop your legs to one side, then return to center.  Repeat on the other side. Continue alternating sides for 45 seconds.
Expert tip: Don’t let your hip lift too high off the floor.

Oblique Side Crunches

Lie on your back, knees bent and feet flat on the floor, arms extended overhead. Reach your arms outside your right knee, lifting your shoulders off the floor. Return to start, then repeat the crunch on the opposite side. Continue alternating sides for 45 seconds.
Expert tip: Use your core to lift yourself off the floor.

Forearm Plank Hip Dips

Start in a forearm plank, elbows under your shoulders. Keeping your core tight, drop your hips to one side, then return to center. Repeat the dip on the opposite side. Continue alternating sides for 45 seconds.
Expert tip: Keep your core tight and engaged to protect your lower back.


Hi, lovelies! ^^

So, today, I decided to make a masterpost for studying with your notes - how to take notes, how to make your notes more colorful, brighter and how to learn something from them <3 This is my first masterpost, so I am sorry, if it won’t be as great, as are other’s… ^^ 

 ~ People who inspired me and I love their blogs <3 : @academla @elkstudies @theorganisedstudent @scribblednotesincoats @hayley-studies … thank you!


Taking notes in class, so you can study with them at home:

  • The most important thing is to listen to your teacher, when she/he is talking about subject matter/theme of class. Either your teacher does or doesn’t give you notes - write everything important, everything you found interesting and everything you think you should use in life, in studying for exams or other subjects.
  • Give up on colors & aesthetic. Try to get as much informations as possible. 
  • Don’t be afraid or shy - I know it is hard - but, ask about anything you don’t understand, maybe several times if you need. Don’t forget to write down explanation!
  • If your teacher give you notes - make sure you wrote down everything that is written on the board.
  • Don’t just “I will memorize this, I don’t need to write it down.” Write. It. Down. Even things you knew or learned years ago.

Studying with notes at home (or anywhere, where you feel comfortable):

  •  You will need much more than notes you wrote in the class.
  • Take a textbook, student’s book or anything where you learn from at school and what matches the subject matter. (If you don’t have one from school, look down ^^)
  • Either you have or don’t have a text/student’s book do a research on the web (try also different sites than wikipedia, use from several choices of key words and the Ctrl+F might be helpful) or in the library/internet book store/kindle/iBooks (find your own textbook ^^).
  • Write down everything important you found - take notes like you are in class again.
  • Read the whole text about subject matter, if you have your textbook. Or read what you have found on the web.
  • Read it again.
  • And once again.
  • Complete the notes you took when you first saw your researched text with thing that are new for you.
  • Take the notes from class. Take the notes from research. Take a blank page. They are a mess, aren’t they?
  • Rewrite your notes to a blank paper/to your notebook both together, the ones from class and the ones from research, so they will give you a real subject matter. Like it is a story line. Only with one color for now.
  • Now, take your highlighters, color pens, gel pens, sparkles, glitters, sticky notes, anything colorful. Make it aesthetic.
  • Read your notes again, while you are making them beautiful.
  • Use a color coding, if you need.
  • Now, look at your notes. You like them, don’t you? ^^ I know you do.
  • Read the research and text book again.
  • Read the notes.

Congratulations! You did it! You are ready for your exam!

And if you feel like you still don’t know it, try to make another research, or read your notes and texts again. It will help <3

So, that’s it! I hope you like it!

Love to y'all,

Simme <3
