Nail Art is the Latest Trend Among Mothers Wanting to Honor Their Kiddos

Listen up, ladies! Next time you go to the nail salon for some R&R you may want to jump on the latest nail trend, nail art. Remember your first sonogram? Now you can get it painted on your nails. Yup, you heard right!

The latest trend has ladies requesting their sonograms painted on their nails. Pregnant ladies are lining up for the special paint job as an added touch for their gender reveal parties. On Instagram, a Swedish mama-to-be of twins shared a snapshot showed her nails that were painted with two sonograms of her babies on the way.

Some ladies are even using the latest nail trend as a memorial to babies they have miscarried. An Instagram user named Sara who miscarried in 2017 wanted to remember her baby and used the latest trend as a way to do so. Writing a heartfelt tribute to her child she wrote alongside her post,  “After three years and numerous fertility treatments, my hubby and I finally conceived in April. On May 30, my heart was broken when I found out my baby was no longer living and growing, and he was taken from me the next day.”

“I lost all inspiration as I struggled with the grief. I learned how to love him and his brief life and move forward with renewed hope,” Sara added. “I love you jelly bean, and seeing you on my nails makes me smile.”

Nadine Abramcyk co-founder of Tenoverten non-toxic nail salons based in New York, Los Angeles and Austin spoke to PEOPLE about the newest nail trend and most importantly is it safe for pregnant ladies?

“It’s totally safe to do it as long as you’re in the right environment,” says Abramcyk, who is currently pregnant with her third child. “It matters less what products you’re using and more about the safety of the environment at the salon that you’re choosing.”

Abramcyk encourages pregnant women to be their own advocate and survey the nail salon before sitting down in the chair. Clean tools and proper ventilation are two very important things women carrying a child should investigate.  

“It’s definitely a better option to find a nail salon that is free of a lot of chemicals that they’re using in services so that these chemicals are not airborne and you’re not breathing them in.

Celebrate the Muppets Most Wanted Premiere with the Best of the Swedish Chef

Who doesn’t love the Swedish Chef? The unintelligible Muppet has a cooking style that is all his own — often complete with flying utensils!

Plus, he’s even gone head-to-head with the foul-mouthed Gordon Ramsay. Now that takes some gusto.

No matter what he’s cooking (pancakes? meatballs? dessert?), the Chef kicks off his step-by-step tutorials with a silly song and dance before putting his culinary skills to work… or at least trying to before disaster strikes.

In honor of Muppets Most Wanted hitting theaters Friday, revisit these five classic clips from our favorite food-loving puppet. You may not learn how to make a meal, but you will satiate your funny bone!

Making Meatballs
We couldn’t profile the Swedish Chef without a demo of him cooking up a batch of delicious Swedish meatballs! With a sprinkle of seasoning, the Chef’s meaty morsels are one-of-a-kind, with a healthy bounce and a whole lot of fun!

Fun Factor: The meatballs take on double duty as tennis balls in an amusing game with balcony heckler Statler.

Basket’ Case
This recipe is a slam-dunk for the Chef, who goes to court with his Chicken in a Basket dish. He scores extra points for his dribble skills and amusing (albeit indecipherable) play-by-play commentary.

Fun Factor: It’s just in time for March Madness!

Manic for Moose
When it’s time for dessert, the Chef’s chocolate ‘moose’ recipe was off to a good start, with a decadent mix of rich chocolate. But the sweet treat takes a goofy turn when Chef layers the chocolate on the moose.

Fun Factor: The always-loveable Kermit the Frog races in to stop the insanity!

Morning Flap Jacks
The comical cook uses the breakfast staple to illustrate the art of flipping morning flapjacks, proving it’s all in the wrist.

Fun Factor: The Chef doesn’t know his own strength, flinging and sticking each pancake onto the ceiling!

Spring Chicken
Chef discovers that his feathered friends are unwilling subjects as he begins to prepare the Spring Chicken entrée. When he tries to lay down the law, his chickens spring out of control — and out of the kitchen! With a meat cleaver in hand, he attempts to retrieve his main course.

Fun Factor: Kermit, Gonzo and Fozzie all make a surprise appearance, offering a few zingers of their own!

A Bulging Disk! Tiger Woods Having Medical Issues — But He Doesn’t Need Surgery: REPORT

A Bulging Disk! Tiger Woods Having Medical Issues — But He Doesn’t Need Surgery: REPORT

Posted by Adam

Tiger bulging diskTIGER Woods has a problem with his bulge.

But it’s not what you think!

The golfer — who famously cheated on his wife, Swedish stunner Elin Nordegren, with a bunch of different women — has been diagnosed with a bulging back disk and won’t need surgery.

A source says the situation could have been worse, because Woods doesn’t have the kind of herniated disk that likely would require an operation.

Woods himself hasn’t identified the diagnosis publicly other than citing spasms. He said his goal is to continue treatment with hopes of playing the April 10-13 Masters, where he has won four of his 14 major championships.

“It’s too early to know about the Masters, and I will continue to be evaluated and work closely with my doctors,” Woods said on his website.

Meanwhile, Woods’ ex-wife — who got a $110 million divorce payout from the cheating golfer — told Tiger’s current squeeze, Lindsey Vonn, to not pressure Tiger into marriage.

But sadly of Lindsey, she didn’t listen — and now the romance is on the rocks.

“Elin thinks Lindsey is good for Tiger but doubts their relation­ship will last,” said the source.

“She advised Lindsey to not put any pressure on Tiger, but Lindsey went ahead and did the complete opposite. She’s demanding a com­mitment, and that just pushes Tiger farther away.

“When Lindsey hit him with an ultimatum, it started an argument. Tiger told her, ‘If that’s the way you feel, we need to rethink this whole relationship.’”

Hugh Grant Is a Father for the Third Time

01/30/2014 at 09:30 AM EST

Hugh Grant is a father again – and in fact, this boy is more than a year old already!

The actor, 53, had a son in 2012 with Swedish TV announcer Anna Elisabet Eberstein, according to the Sun newspaper. The two have reportedly been seeing each other for two years.

The news was only revealed when Grant’s full name, Hugh John Mungo Grant, was printed on the child’s birth certificate when the birth was re-registered in December.

The space was reportedly left blank on the first birth certificate.

The boy, whose name has not been made public, was born three months before the birth of Grant’s second child, Felix Chang, with former girlfriend Tinglan Hong.

Grant and Hong, 33, also have a daughter, Tabitha Xaio Xi, born in September 2011 in London. It is not clear if Hong was aware of Grant’s simultaneous affair with Eberstein. A source told the Sun, “They were pregnant with Hugh’s children at the same time. It’s an unusual arrangement.”

A rep for Grant did not return calls.

Susanne Eberstein, Anna’s mother, said in an email to the tabloid Aftonbladet this week: “It is a wonderful little cute grandchild boy i have got. I already had a grandchild since earlier, and it’s such fun to have another one.”
