What are some ways to keep the spark in your relationship?
When you first get together with someone, it’s new and exciting. But when you’ve been with the same person for a long time, you can sometimes fall into what feels like a rut. Relationships can constantly change, and being with your partner for a long time doesn’t mean you can’t still experience new and fun things. Cupid has some advice on some ways to keep the spark in your relationship:
1. Recreate your first date: It can be fun to go back to the beginning, experience things all over again, but also see how much things have changed. Memories are important things and some we will cherish and remember forever, but that doesn’t mean we can’t go back and relive them. It could be fun to go “back in time” for a night and recreate the magic all over again.

2. Try something new together: What makes the beginning of relationship so exciting is the fact everything is new. So, trying new things together will keep things fresh and the fires burning. Do something you both have talked about doing or haven’t done yet, try activities like skydiving or try traveling somewhere you’ve never been, it doesn’t matter what you do just make it an adventure and something to remember.
3. Dress up for each other from time to time: Sure, you may already have that special someone in your life, but that doesn’t mean you should stop taking care of yourself or dressing up for them. Don’t just get all dolled up for date nights, try doing it sometime when you’re home and make a boring night turn into a romantic evening in. Having a little fun in your relationship, like dressing up for your beau, can help with keeping the passion alive between the two of you.

We all want to look our best, and that begins with managing our hair. With clients such as Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston, Chrissy Tiegan, and Jennifer Lopez, Raphael Reboh definitely knows what he’s doing when it comes to achieving glossy locks. Whether it’s a celebrity in his chair or not, the stylist finds himself always stressing the same advice: take care of your hair!
“Women often don’t take care of their hair as much as their skin, but they should,” he explains. “I find it weird that women will run out and buy hundreds of dollars worth of face cream that may not even work, but they won’t spend the same amount of money and energy on their hair. Hair is connected to the scalp, so it’s just as important.”

How can you give back as a couple?
Spending a lazy afternoon at a ball game can be the perfect casual date — and celebrity couples seem to think so, too. Sometimes, celeb sightings at a sporting event can be as entertaining at the game itself. There may even be as much action off the court as there is on it.
So the next time you attend a sporting event — whether it be hockey, basketball or baseball — keep your eyes open for the famous duos below:
1. Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher: In February, Underwood’s hockey-playing hubby was traded from the Ottawa Senators to the Nashville Predators. Shortly after, Fisher moved into his wife’s Brentwood, CA, home (and into her closet), and for the first time during their marriage, the newlyweds settled in the same city. Fans can rest assured that, once the hockey season starts up again in October, Underwood will be at as many home games as her hectic schedule allows.

From Britney Spears to Nicki Minaj, this year’s MTV Video Music Award (VMA) nominees are teeming with A-list music stars. The three top contenders include Katy Perry, with nine nods (the most of any performer this year), and Adele and Kanye West, both with seven nominations each. While it will be exciting to see which stars take home a trophy for their designated categories, we’re also eager to see which of our favorite celebrity couples will attend. Although we won’t know for sure who will show up to the VMAs until Sunday, Aug. 28, here are five celebrity couples we hope make an appearance:
1. Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z: Listed as the “most powerful couple” for TIME magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” in 2006, the duo dated for six years before secretly getting married in 2008. OK Magazine reported that “the couple is very supportive of one another — making sure to attend performances and appearances together.” That means we can definitely count on them to arrive together, since Beyoncé is up for a nomination, right?
It looks like love got the best of him! Jay-Z finally broke his longstanding silence when it comes to talking about wife Beyonce to the media. He just couldn’t contain himself during a phone call into a Miami, Florida, radio station, according to UsMagazine.com. And when he opens up, he really lets it fly. “What I’ve learned from her is similar to what I learned from Mike [Jackson] – and I know that’s blasphemy to compare the two because Mike was such an innovator – but I think she’s like the second coming,” said Jay-Z. “You know, the hard work and dedication that she puts into her shows. It just makes you want to work harder at your own craft. She’s like a machine.”

Why do some celebrity couples end up as a train wreck, while others seem to withstand the test of time? Different strategies work for different power couples.

With this year’s 2010 midterm elections coming to a close today, we aren’t seeing the celebrity star power that we witnessed in 2008. Make no mistake; it’s not the Presedential election but it’s still an important time to vote. According to experts, Hollywood is staying home this election period. Why the lack of star power now? Where’s Brad and Angelina? Demi and Ashton? Whether we like it or not, these famous folks can influence public opinion. If you and your partner are ready to vote but don’t see eye-to-eye when it comes to politics, there are still ways that you can make a stance while maintaining a healthy relationship:

Rumors are swirling that Beyoncé Knowles will soon be in the market for some bootylicious baby booties! In an exclusive, US Magazine is reporting that the singer and husband, Jay-Z, are expecting their first child. According to a source, the news came as a big surprise for the superstar duo. “B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet.” “She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again.” Still, another source says that Beyonce realizes that “this is a gift from God and she’s so happy.” But don’t start buying baby clothes for the couple just yet. Beyoncé’s mom recently told Ellen DeGeneres that the pair are, in fact, not expecting a baby, according to People. The truth remains to be seen!
How can you and your partner best handle news of a surprise pregnancy?
Superstar Beyoncé Knowles has a broad range of issues on her plate, but pregnancy isn’t one of them. The singer has previously acknowledged her wish for a baby, and assures U.K.’s YOU magazine that her plans have not changed. However, she says she is determined “to continue to learn about the world and to eventually have a family.” This attitude allows for the Dreamgirls actress to continue work on her acting, singing, songwriting, and her new perfume, Heat. Knowles adds that isn’t on any schedule: “It will happen when I am ready.”
