I like your sleeves. They're real big.

I love Us Weekly. It is full of amazing and useful facts like whom the stars go to when they want a nose job, how much they weigh, and why they are just like us (they wait at the baggage claim too!).

This week's magazine looked especially promising because it was full of celebrity relationships that were in trouble. But to balance the troubles Eva Longoria Parker and Tony were having--not to mention Heidi Montag and that douche Spencer--Us Weekly had a whole spread of engaged celebrities and their rings.

The best part, a little corner box talked about trends in Hollywood wedding rings.

In general, I like to think that "trendy" is good for things like nail polish, purses/bags, jeans and other things that will last a week/season or two (ok, maybe four. who's counting?).

"Trendy" is not good for "forever" things. Things like engagement rings or your children's names, anything you might want to be able to pass down to your grandchildren. You don't want to choose them because of an article you saw in Us Weekly.

Forever things are supposed to be classic. Like Jacqueline Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn. When you start looking for trendy stuff to decide on forever things, it means one of two things. 1) you aren't even trying to pretend like it's a forever thing. 2) you're going to end up with this decade's equivalent of poofy sleeves on your wedding dress. I'm just saying.
