It’s that “most wonderful time of the year” time of year and… you’re procrastinating sorting out your holiday gifts, aren’t you? And who doesn’t have those one or two people who are really, really difficult to shop for?! I know I do.
So that is why I am sooooooo thrilled to be an American Express ambassador for their #PointsForPresents Holiday program this year! Over the last few weeks I have been digging through their extensive catalog of goodies and I’ve compiled a few of my faves to help you — my fabulous and in-the-know readers — pick out some seriously stellar gifts (all shoppable using American Express Membership Rewards) that seriously everyone will love!
American Express helps ease the pain of shopping by allowing their Cardmembers to earn and use Membership Rewards points. Surely you already know you can earn points for almost every purchase you make (and with no expiration date)… But — did you know you can use your points on a wide variety of gift cards, retail purchases, travel and entertainment events? Aha!

A new poll from Billboard.com has crowned an unlikeley pair as the Sexiest Man and Women in Music. Despite the combination, there is no doubt that Billboard voter’s choice of the current X Factor Judge, Britney Spears, and American Idol star, Adam Lambert was a good one. It’s hard to disagree that Adam and Britney are sexy!
In the poll that brought in over 600,000 votes, Spears earned 45% of the vote for sexiest female, followed by Lady Gaga with 12% of the vote and Beyonce in 3rd with 8% of the vote. Adam Lambert took 26% of the votes for sexiest male, beating out Maroon 5′s Adam Levine into second place with 12%, while Justin Bieber placed third with 10%.
What do you guys think!? Do you agree with the final vote?

After slipping out the word “fags” during a Q&A session before his film Tower Heist, Brett Ratner was under a lot of scrutiny…
However, realizing his mistake, Ratner is now ready to put a stop to antigay speech by judging a pro-gay PSA contest.
The filmmaker has teamed up with designer Tom Ford, the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, and the Ad Council to create a PSA campaign called “Think Before You Speak.”
The goal is to raise awareness of how damaging the use of terms like “faggot” and “that’s so gay” can be. The campaign asks aspiring filmmakers to submit 30-second PSA videos on the subject, which will be accepted until May 2. The videos will then be judged and the winner will be honored at the GLSEN Respect Awards in Los Angeles.
You can find out how to enter at Talenthouse!
