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!

Who better to ride with to Kim Kardashian‘s Halloween party than the DJ?
Jakissa Taylor-Semple, now known to a very stylish set as DJ Kiss, was recently named one of Us Weekly’s “25 Most Stylish New Yorkers,” she’s provided the tunes at parties for everyone from Madonna to Naomi Campbell and her A-list fashion clients include Chanel, Prada, Alexander Wang, Tiffany & Co., Salvatore Ferragamo, and many more.
So, she’s kind of a big deal.
On Saturday night (Oct 27), AXSLive picked up the spinmaster of the night, DJ Kiss, for a ride-a-long — to find out how she got started DJing, celebrity parties vs. fashion parties, her DJ hubby DJ MOS, what’s HOT on her playlist…and much much more!
“Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star Kim Kardashian (with new beau Kanye West) hosted the Midori Beachside Bash at the Delano Beach Club, where she was joined by her BFFs Jonathan Cheban and Larsa Pippen, as well as “Dancing With The Stars” cutie Karina Smirnoff. The reality TV star rocked a white and green Versace dress for the occasion.
“The Voice’s” Christina Milian was all smiles at the Nicolita show, presented by Veet, on Day 2 of Mercedes-Benz Swim Week at the Raleigh Hotel in South Beach. The singer walked the runway with designer Nicole Di Rocco. Wilmer Valderrama and “Dancing With The Stars” cutie Cheryl Burke sat front row.
Actress Shenae Grimes (“90210″) attended the Angela Martini Bikini Fashion Show at WET at W Hotel South Beach for supermodel and swimwear designer, Angela Martini. The Albanian born supermodel created for her premier Spring/Summer 2013 collection an assortment of atypical bikini silhouettes inspired in cut and colors by exotic flowers.
Actress Dania Ramirez showed off her paddle boarding skills at the Muscle Milk Fitness Retreat and Oakley Learn to Ride event, but not before she took a tumble with boyfriend John Land nearby. Miami Housewife Marysol Patton was also in the mix, and was spotted drinking a chocolate Muscle Milk Light on the sand.
Sports Illustrated Models Nina Agdal and Julie Henderson stopped by the Lifestyle Retreat Lounge to get some treatments and cool off from the heat. Nina Agdal received a glamorous summer makeover by professional stylists from Mary Kay and BayBlissPRO while Julie checked out Rica Swimwear’s new collection and had some sweet treats by Tasti D-lite. Julie later celebrated her own design collaboration with Basta Surf at Soho Beach House and hosted a party at SET nightclub.
The Oakley Spring 2013 Swim Show hosted by Trimera Group sizzled on Sunday night at Hyde Beach in Miami. The models, including Oakley surf star Erica Hosseini, heated up the runway in the lastest and greatest from Oakley Swim and UNO de 50 jewelry while DJ Nick Cannon spun the tunes for the party. Also joining the fun with the bevy of swimsuit models was legendary rapper Lil Jon.
Madonna is back with a HOT new music video!
With a Tom Ford-esque driver toting her around Florence, Italy, the cleavage-bearing “Give Me All Your Luv’n” singer picks up some pals for a backseat dance party in her newest music video for “Turn Up The Radio,” from her new album MDNA.
Watch the video below and let MJ know what you think. Is the video HOT or NOT?
Pop queen Madonna began her “MDNA” tour in Tel Aviv with a bang. The tour, which she has dedicated to World peace, will travel to 65 cities all over the world.
As expected, the concert was a spectacle, featuring a gospel choir, 22 dancers and eight costume changes that ranged from a cheerleader ensemble to sleek pieces that showed off her rockin’ body. She sang old hits such as “Like a Virgin” and “Papa don’t preach” as well as songs from her most recent album such as “Give Me All Your Luvin’” to the crowd of over 30,000.
Madonna took a break in the performance to speak out to the audience: “I chose to start my world tour in Israel for a very specific and important reason. As you know, the Middle East and all the conflicts that occur here and that have been occurring for thousands of years…They have to stop…You can’t be a fan of mine and not want peace in the world”
Her tour continues in Europe until she comes to the U.S. in August.
Georgia May Jagger is the new face of Material Girl!
“To be handpicked by Madonna and Lola as the new face of Material Girl is truly amazing. I’ve always admired Madonna’s style and I’m thrilled to be working with them,” stated Georgia May Jagger.
Georgia May Jagger is the daughter of the legendary musician, Mick Jagger and supermodel, Jerry Hall. Georgia, a world-renowned model, has graced the covers of international fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle.
The Material Girl brand is available exclusively at Macy’s and on macys.com in the United States, The Bay in Canada, and will launch in Europe and Australia later this summer.

“The Queen of Pop” Madonna was on hand at Macy’s Herald Square in NYC to launch her very first fragrance, “Truth Or Dare,” to a packed crowed of excited fans!
The “Girl Gone Wild” singer sat pretty on stage and answered “intelligent” questions from fans.
She said the fragrance was inspired by her late mother and is an intoxicating mixture that is both “feminine and mysterious.” The Material Girl said she wanted to re-create that scent, but make it fresh and contemporary, honest yet daring, which led to her naming the fragrance “Truth or Dare.”
Truth or Dare was also the name of her 1991 documentary film that chronicled Madonna’s 1990 Blond Ambition World Tour and reportedly grossed over $29 million.
Watch the Q&A with Madonna right here and check out more HOT SHOTS…after the jump!
The line includes an Eau du Parfum 75ml for $68, 50ml $55, 30ml $39, Body Lotion $28, and Shower Gel for $24, sold exclusively at Macy’s.
