Miley Cyrus' Pilates Workout

Miley has been working with Mari Winsor for three years to get her great legs and abs. She even installed a pilates studio in her home so that Mari can pay her personal visits. Miley's favorite moves are the 100s, which Mari demonstrates in the following video. Miley chooses pilates because she is able to do it for a short amount of time (not every single day) and get great results. For someone as busy as she is, studying pilates makes perfect sense! Check out the video for an introduction to Miley's favorite moves :)

No twerking?
Pilates is the best! Even the most basic moves will tone your body in no-time
I haven't paid much attention to Miley, her music wasn't really my taste, but she really knows how to take care of her body!
The hundreds always look so much easier than they actually are :)

Makeup Artist Draws Kim Kardashian On Her Chin
If you think Michael Jordan crying meme is hilarious, the Kim Kardashian one is twice as funny. As much as we love Kim K, she will never get out of this one -- ever. Let's be honest, her cry was monumental and quite hideous -- then again, who really has a lovely looking smile anyway? While Michael Jordan has been getting the most shine lately for his crying meme, it didn't take long before someone came along and put the infamous Kim Kardashian meme on the map. You've seen it on blogs, you've seen it on cellphones, and you've even seen it on shirts, but have you ever seen it on someone's chin? If not, today happens to be your lucky day. A talented makeup artist decided it would be cool if she drew cry baby Kim on her chin and believe it or not, it actually came out looking rather amazing. You cannot tell me that makeup is not a form of art. Laura Jenkinson is a makeup artist known for recreating images on her chin using her ever so amazing makeup skills and if you thought this was pretty awesome, just wait until you see her Donald Trump drawing -- yikes. In the meantime, keep scrolling and check out the images below. How epic is this? Looks just like Kim. Seriously. Of course, you can't have Kim without Kylie and her new lips. Amazing! Looks just like Jay-Z. Big lips and all. He has that same sinister look he always has on his face. Donald Gump. Ooops, I mean't Trump. Hey Everyone, look it's Finn from Adventure Time! And of course, I had to save the best for last and for @alywoah. Tacos! How amazingly odd are these works of art? Which one is your favorite? @alywoah @danidee @humairaa @cindystran @sophiamor @buddyesd @marshalledgar @YourConscience @shannonl5 @TessStevens @MyAffairWith @EasternShell @Cle1 @jazziejazz @primodiva93 @stephosorio @LizArnone
Hannah Montana: Where Are They Now?
She really did have the best of both worlds. I'm not going to pretend I didn't watch this on a regular basis, even though I was certainly too old to still be watching Disney Channel when it aired. The secret pop star and her close knit groups of friends and family have been busy since their days in Malibu. From Pop to Punk Miley Cyrus probably had the most dramatic transition of any Disney Channel star ever. From innocent Hannah Montana to her now self-described "white trash and Chanel" self, she's been making headlines for her music, style and relationships. Personally, I'm glad she escaped the mold of sweet Disney Channel stars and is doing her own thing. Still Old Okay, I can't find pictures of Jason Earles then and now because he was already SUPER OLD when he starred on the show. A 30-year-old playing a teenager just seems wrong to me, but I guess he pulled it off. Despite being older than everyone else on Disney Channel, Earles continued to start in Disney shows after Hannah Montana ended. Now, he's married with children (finally acting his age). Now a D-List Celeb Emily Osment went from Hannah Montana's trusty sidekick to the star of her own ABC Family show, Young & Hungry. She plays a young adult living on her own in San Francisco, which sounds like the plot of every ABC Family original series, but that's okay, I wish her the best. Teen Gets Tatted Thankfully Mitchel Musso has gotten a hair cut since Hannah Montana! He has also stayed true to his Disney Channel roots, starring in a couple of other Disney shows and writing music for Radio Disney. Less Disney Channel-esque are his tattoos, which he has become sort of well known for. Star of Sharknado (the sequel) Billy Ray Cyrus has since grown more facial hair than that tiny goatee he sported throughout Hannah Montana. He has also continued his solid acting career with appearances in classics like Sharknado 2: The Second One.
"Hannah Montana" caused Body Dysmorphia for young Miley Cyrus
It really wasn't the best of both worlds. News about Miley Cyrus' battle with body dysmorphia during her 'Hannah Montana' days has really come in like a wrecking ball! It comes as a surprise to many because Hannah Montana was the persona that every little girl in the United States wanted to mimic back in the day. Hannah Montana was a disney phenomenon during the prime years of Disney Channel. Cyrus came after the days of Hilary Duff's Lizzie McGuire pop stars days. Cyrus was popular before Nickelodeon's Victorious and Disney's High School Musical. She controlled the market and with no real pop star competition in the mainstream music industry, Cyrus was able to dominate. She went on tour selling out stadiums that no entertainer had ever done before. And then it all changed. Miley Cyrus started to show signs of someone who was drastically unrecognizable to the bubble gum sparkly pop princess the country fell in love with. First, Cyrus at age 15, shocked the world when a picture of her holding only a sheet over her chest graced Vogue. Though Annie Leibovitz, world famous photographer, is known for provocative and shockingly amazing photos, people were horrified to see a tween girl being sexualized. However, the cutesy image continued to be quickly discarded after the Hannah Montana movie. We saw "Party In The USA", "The Climb", and "7 Things I Hate About You". But then she hit the ultimate turning point in her shocking song, "I Can't Be Tamed". The teenage years would surprise everyone and Cyrus showed that she wasn't kidding around. Twerking, tongue wagging, nudity, drugs, alcohol, and a short pixie haircut would be Cyrus' new image and she continues to create controversy with each passing year. However, she has never felt more like herself. That was then. She wore sparkly clothing with bedazzled jewelry. She was your typical American pop star with a platinum blonde wig and blue eyes. It was all confetti, backup dancers, and lazer lights before Cyrus even realized what was going on. "From the time I was 11, it was, 'You're a pop star! That means you have to be blonde, and you have to have long hair, and you have to put on some glittery tight thing,'" Miley told Marie Claire for their September issue,"Meanwhile, I'm this fragile little girl playing a 16-year-old in a wig and a ton of makeup. It was like Toddlers & Tiaras." Though Cyrus didn't feel comfortable with all of the changes, she remained silent. How could she complain? Her life was perfect from an outsider's view. She was getting everything she ever wanted, well, THOUGHT she wanted. But Cyrus quickly learned she wasn't being herself and that needed to change. "I was made to look like someone that I wasn't, which probably caused some body dysmorphia because I had been made pretty every day for so long, and then when I wasn't on that show, it was like, Who the f**k am I?" This is now. She's 22-years-old and just completed her sexually exhilarating Bangerz Tour in October. With major hits like "Wrecking Ball", "Adore You", and "We Can't Stop", Cyrus has been raking in the money. She's currently working on her fifth studio album that will undoubtedly hit number one on the charts as soon as it's released. Cyrus is even hosting the highly anticipated 2015 VMAs this year guaranteeing that it'll be a spectacle. But even though she is finally comfortable in her own skin and reaping success, she has never forgotten her past. "I would have anxiety attacks. I'd get hot flashes, feel like I was about to pass up or throw up. It would happen a lot before shows, and I'd have to cancel. Then the anxiety started coming from anxiety," Miley shared. "You get in this hole that seems like you're never going to be able to get out of." Cyrus also continued to note that she'd "probably never going to be the face of a traditional beauty company." Her image may be too controversial these days. "Unless they want a weed-smoking, liberal-ass freak," Miley added. "But my dream was never to sell lip gloss. My dream is to save the world."
Tone Your Inner Thighs with This Workout
It's time to get the legs you want. The inner thighs are every girl's nightmare area, and in this season of swimsuits and short and summer dresses, there is no way to hide them. Luckily, there are some steps you can take to thin and strengthen those legs to make them exactly what you want. So grab some weights, an exercise ball, and a water bottle and let's get ready for this summer. Ball Leg Lifts Lie on your side on the floor with your arms crossed in front of your body. If this is uncomfortable, bend your bottom elbow and rest your head on your hand. Place a large exercise ball in between your feet, and slowly lift the ball up toward the ceiling using only your hips and butt. Return to the start position. This counts as one repetition. Complete three sets of 15 reps. Glider Side Lunge Stand with your feet a few inches apart, with your right foot on the plastic lid. Make a fist with one hand and cup your other hand over it. Keep your hands in front of your chest throughout the exercise to help you stay balanced. Put weight into your left leg, and as you slowly bend your left knee and squat down, slide your right foot out to the side. Then as you slowly straighten your leg, slide the right foot back in. Most of your weight remains in the leg that's not moving. Complete three sets of 10 reps with each leg. Sumo Squat With Side-Arm Raises Stand with legs wide and toes pointed outward slightly. Hold a pair of dumbbells in your hands with your arms straight and your palms facing down. Bend your knees until your knees are over your ankles while raising your arms to just below shoulder height. Arms should be in line with your legs — you should see the weights in your peripheral vision.Straighten your legs and lower your arms simultaneously. Complete three sets of 15 reps. Pilates Inner-Thigh Leg Lifts Lying on your side, lengthen your bottom leg and cross your top leg over it. Rest either your knee or foot on the floor. Prop your head up with your hand, or rest your head on your arm. As you exhale, lift your bottom leg up, and inhale as you lower it back down. Your torso should stay still while you do this. Do 10 reps, then repeat on the other side. Gate Swings With Cross Start with your feet in a wide, second-position stance with your toes pointed slightly outward. Bend your knees and lower into a squat, using your hands to help push your knees wide apart to deepen the inner-thigh stretch. Push off your knees to get leverage, and jump your right leg in front of your left, landing in a standing cross-legged stance.Immediately jump your legs back out to a wide squat with your hands at your knees. Push off your knees and jump your legs together, crossing your left leg in front of your right. Repeat as many times as possible for at least 40 seconds. Narrow Squat With Overhead Press Begin standing with your legs together, arms raised to shoulder height with elbows bent, holding weights by your ears. Squat toward the floor by bending your knees and reaching your bum backward, as if you were sitting in a chair. Keep your legs squeezing together. Focus your weight into your heels. While squatting, raise your arms overhead into a parallel position. Return to starting position by pressing through your heels while bending your elbows to lower the weights back to shoulder level. Do 15 reps for one set. Do three sets. Scissor Jacks Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, and extend your arms straight out to either side with palms facing down. This is the starting position. Jump, and cross your right arm over your left and your right foot over your left. Jump back to the starting position, then cross with the opposite arm and foot. This counts as one rep. Continue alternating sides and repeating this movement until you complete 25 reps. Be sure to keep up the pace and not allow too much time for recovery between jumps; this way you'll be sure to keep up your heart rate and engage your whole body.
