Golf Digest Taps Holly Sonders for May Cover.
Tiger Woods may be the world’s number-one ranked golfer again, but he didn’t make the cut for the cover of Golf Digest’s May issue. Instead, the magazine opted for Golf Channel’s Holly Sonders.Sonders, cohost of “Morning Drive” and “School of Golf,” was selected for her sexy and athletic image as the cover girl for the magazine’s fitness-themed issue.
Ron Kaspriske, who penned the article on Sonders and spearheaded the fitness package, said she was chosen because the magazine thought she’d be “an inspiration to our readers.” Before a knee injury ended her hopes of a professional career in golf, Sonders was “an accomplished amateur player,” he said, racking up two American Junior Golf Association wins and helping Michigan State win the 2007 Big Ten Championship. Kaspriske said having a woman on the cover is “unusual,” but the chatter around Sonders was the tipping point. “We usually go with a professional or an amateur, but she’s gotten so much buzz, we decided to go out with her first,” he said.
He said the 35-page fitness section is intended to help golfers “slowly march toward getting fit” and includes exercises, nutrition tips and even “home-spun advice” from Mark Wahlberg, also an avid golfer and fitness buff. “We wanted people to know this is the sport of a lifetime,” Kaspriske said. “You may not be the guy with the six-pack abs, but there are a lot of things you can do to improve the experience and the way you look and feel.”
A teaser for the issue on the magazine’s Web site with outtakes from the Sonders photo shoot is quickly closing in on a record number of hits, Kaspriske said. The tablet version of the magazine came out Tuesday and the print edition hits newsstands on April 9.
In the ’30s fringed necklaces with pearls and pearl accents grew in popularity. We saw a lot of simulated pearls by Coro. Delta and Richelieu pearls were in the jewelry catalogs of the time. Single strands were still the pearls of choice but double strand pearls came into vogue. Most strands were sixteen to eighteen inches.
The ’40s were two and three strands of pearls and the five strands twisted. Most necklaces were fifteen to seventeen inches. We saw ads for Castlecliff pearls in Vogue magazine.
The ’50s were one, two and three strands of pearls measuring in length from fifteen to eighteen inches per strand. The fifties brought us the many strands of seed pearls of thirty to fifty strands and the double strand of colored pearls with a large decorative incorporated pendant on the bottom with the pearls attaching to each side of the pendant. And the beautiful and sometimes extravagant jeweled clasps. Ah, those great pearl bracelets!
The ’60s most popular pearls were the two strand choker and the two strands that was about twenty-four inches in length.
The ’70s brought us link chains of fifteen inch and thirty inch with a few individual pearls on the chain and pendants with pearls. We had a single strand of pearls with a heart on the strand as a pendant.
The ’80s were back to the real deal. Simulated pearls were not in fashion. Who creates the fashion standard? Is it magazines, fashion designers, movie stars, recording stars we follow for our fashion choices? Not unless we choose to do so. Who truly creates the fashion style is the availability of the item and us!
There is no gem quite like a pearl. Wear your pearls with pride.Have fun. Be classic, be you, wear vintage.
TOWIE: Lucy and Mario Are On The Rocks Again And Joey Helps Arg Join A Dating Site.
Could this finally be the end for Lucy and Mario?
It was another exciting and drama-filled episode of The Only Way is Essex tonight as Joey helps Arg join a dating site, Cara has surgery, Nanny Pat offers Arg her number, and Mario upsets Lucy (again!) after she finds out he’s still messaging other girls…
After some impressive dance moves with Joey Essex, Kirk told his pal about the Lauren Pope situation, admitting: “I’ve tried to be mature. She threw it in my face.”
But later on whilst they’re in a club Lauren admits to Chloe: “Kirk is unfinished business.” Could there be a reunion for the couple?
Arg gets some advice from the Wright family, admitting he wants a new chapter in his life. And to help, Nanny Pat offers to give the singer her number!
Mario walked out last week after Lucy admitted she wasn’t ready to marry Italian stud but it seems he’s thought about his actions as he apologises to the blonde beauty.
After asking why she doesn’t want to get married, Lucy answered: “The messages (from other girls) aren’t bad, it’s the fact you haven’t told me.
“I don’t like the idea of these girls and I don’t like what they look like in their pictures.”
She added: “I will marry you in five years time.”
Mario admits his proposal was the wrong thing to do. He said: “I proposed for the wrong reason.”
The engagement is still on as the couple agree to wait a few years until they’re ready to marry. As he prepares to leave, Mario hands Lucy a letter leaving the boutique-owner looking worried.
Lucy needs some advice and decides to visit Lydia, admitting she’s been looking at Mario’s phone.
“I know he will never cheat on me, but I also think he enjoys sleeping with other women,” Lucy revealed.
Lydia comforts her pal as she said: “Don’t jump to conclusions.”
However one of Sugar Hut Honey’s reveals to boss Mick and son Kirk that an engaged man has been sending her messages and reveals it’s Mario! Mick decides it’s time to give his friend some advice.
Joey decides to help Arg move on and tries to find him a nice girl as he sets up a profile for him on a dating website. He began to write ‘My friend is chubby’ before Arg manages to stop him and Joey gives his pal some advice to shower more!
Meanwhile Tom and Lydia discussed marriage as Lydia described her ideal wedding. Tom decides to ask his sister Cara for advice who tells him that if he really wants to, he should do it. Although she does warn her 21-year-old brother: “You’ve only been together for six months.” Tom is unaffected as he replies: “We’re proper happy though.”
Could Lydia and Tom beat Lucy and Mario to the alter?
The bad luck continues for Mario as Lucy finds out about the messages he’s sent to one of Mick’s Honey’s and she’s not happy. After confronting the Italian, she walks out muttering: “It’s not worth it. She’s not worth it. You’re not even worth it sometimes.”
Poor Lucy! But will she forgive Mario and give him another chance?
We can’t wait to find out in next weeks episode on ITV2 next Wednesday (October 17).

Circumstances might be similar for other such married couples but how they deal with them is surprisingly different. Rosy, a beautician and hair dresser lives in Delhi with her 5-year-old son, while her husband is posted in Asansol, thanks to a ‘secure’ government job. She doesn’t mind the distance as long as he visits them twice every year. “A government job has many benefits and that is why it is important for him to continue working there,” she says. If given a chance, would she want to go and live with him? “No. Delhi has many renowned schools and I want my son to get first class education. Besides, I have a full time job here that pays well. We’ve spoken about it at length and agreed upon this set up mutually,” she adds.
A thoughtful and practical decision as it may seem, thirty years ago things were not as easy as they are today. For 52-year-old Mrs Joseph, a stenographer, the challenge to live with a house full of in-laws while her husband went off to Qatar to make a fortune, was rather difficult. When asked if she disliked the idea of him going away in the first place, she answers uncomfortably, “Those days, we women did not have much say. Husbands were the sole breadwinners and we were expected to accept their decisions, good or bad.” And was she able to bring about a change in the state of affairs in due course of time? “Not really. Things are still the same except that I have learned to live with it,” says a rather dejected Mrs Joseph who even after twenty eight years of marriage only has memories of her husband’s homecomings during Christmas every year.
It is during times like these that the role of an extended family is put to test. Marriage and relationship counsellor Gitanjali Sharma points out, “Discrepancies may arise if the in-laws are not supportive. They should be willing to bridge the communication gap between the partners instead of straining their relationship further .”
