This is one of those pranks that you almost feel guilty for laughing at, but I’m sharing it with you anyway. An 8-year-old boy named Kenyan was playing around on his family’s iPad and I guess was checking out the cars on eBay. He panicked and shut the iPad off when he thought he purchased a Mustang for $50,000 – LOL. He figured by shutting it off, he’d be in the clear. Picture being just a kid and thinking you accidentally almost bought a car – a big difference between that and spilling your juice on the couch.

When his mom, Paula Papen came into the room, she asked him why he bought a $50,000 car and he explained that he had tried to exit out of it and that it purchased the car by accident, so he shut the iPad down to try to prevent it from going through. She said there was no way to cancel it and he is devastated that he has caused his family such grief. His mom doesn’t get mad at him though, she just says he made a mistake. She then breaks the news that he didn’t by a car and he couldn’t be more relieved.

In response to some of the criticism his mom received for the prank via comments on the video, Paula responded by saying “Trust me,? my son is fine, no permanent damage… And if there is, we know some really good therapists.” Watch the video below.

No, you don’t have to keep rubbing your eyes. That is American Idol judge Steven Tyler above immortalized as a famous Cabbage Patch Doll. And no, this isn’t a new Steven Tyler/Aerosmith merchandise scheme, but a new auction for charity; the Children’s Action Network to be exact. “CAN” is a national adoption awareness organization, which find homes for kids in the US who are in foster care.

Jakks Pacific, the makers of some of the most popular toys out there have created five celebrity dolls to be auctioned off on eBay to benefit the aforementioned charity. The auction began today and will run until November 17. The auction is to help raise awareness and funds for National Adoption Month of November. Former Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl has also been turned into a Cabbage Patch kid. This cause is very close to her heart.

“I’m excited to be part of this auction to raise money and awareness for foster children. Adoption is a cause very close to my heart as I have an adopted older sister and an adopted daughter. This auction is important to show the world how many adoptable kids are in great need for stable and loving homes.”

Other celebrities taking part are Al Roker, Broadway baby and television star Kristin Chenoweth and Disney channel and child star Raven Symone. Al Roker stated, “as a father, there is no difference between a biological child and an adopted one, Being a part of this auction is very meaningful to me as I have an adopted daughter and grew up with adopted siblings. Check out the celebrity dolls up for auction below.

Fashion: Shoes, They Make Or Break The Outfit

So let’s talk shoes. They do make or break your outfit. There is a fine line between distressed & aged and dilapidated & gross, know when to throw out shoes. Because I love shoes, the second thing I look at after what type of clothes someone is wearing are their shoes. I don’t know how some people can live on 2 or 3 pairs of shoes but if you must it is always good to have at least 4 different types.

– This is the pair you should be wearing out if you don’t wanna go too dressy. A less ‘gym type’ runner from Diesel, Energie, Puma and others works well and can be dressed up or down with either a T shirt or a button up shirt with a pair of jeans. I’m a huge fan of hi-tops right now and my favourite pair to date are my burgundy patent Supra.
