Beyoncé Keeps Her Finger on the “Pulse” of the Big Apple
Beyonce PulseBeyonce Pulse Perfume
The Beautiful and talented Beyoncé Knowles was all smiles as she posed for photographers. The Actress/Singer was recently in New York promoting her new fragrance, Pulse. If her growing baby bump didn’t catch some attention, her sequin outfit sure did!
Beyoncé was decked out in a blue sequin minidress and matching sequin blazer. B attended the launch party, which was held at the Dream Downtown, with husband Jay-Z. This is Beyoncé’s third fragrance and is said to embody the same assertiveness as her girl-powered hit songs do!
Beyoncé described her new perfume to AP reporters,
“This is very fresh. This is all about citrus, but it also has vanilla in the back. It is important for me for a fragrance not to just smell like one thing.”
The new mommy to be seems to be keeping herself busy, even finding time to make appearances during NYFW.
Beyoncé was also in London for LFW with mother Tina Knowles for the House of Dereon fashion show. With so much promoting going on, how does Beyonce cope with the side effects of pregnancy?
“My nose. I smell everything from a mile away,” said Beyoncé. She continued, “ Usually it is food, it is onions or something that I just can’t tolerate.”
Beyoncé and Hubby Jay-Z aren’t expected to be due until sometime next year, but something tells me this power couple will find time to stay busy!

Actress Amy Smart Marries HGTV’s Carter Oosterhouse in a gorgeous southern wedding.
The couple who said their I-do’s on September 10th, were married in Tranverse City, Michigan. The location had special significance to the couple as the place where the groom grew up and where the brides parents live.
The rustic themed affair took place outdoors and was filled with the colors of wild flowers. The bride looked classic and in a Carolina Herrera ruffled gown. She kept her makeup natural and had her hair pulled away from her face in a timeless up-do. The bridal party each wore different styles of  deep blue dresses all designed by Ann Taylor.
The newly weds shared their first dance as they were serenaded by two fiddlers playing U2’s “All I Want is You”. At the end of the evening the blissful bride showered her hubby in a rain of confetti.
The couple who reportedly met last November, were only together a short time before Carter popped the big question.  We wish them both happiness in their new life together!
