Prince Harry Experienced a Minor Wardrobe Malfunction of His Own — a Giant Hole in His Shoe!

Watch your step, Prince Harry!

While the online world was making a big deal of Meghan Markle‘s barely noticeable undone top button while attending attending the wedding of Harry’s longtime pal Charlie van Straubenzee to Daisy Jenks on Saturday, the 33-year-old royal suffered a minor wardrobe malfunction himself.

Fans with a sharp eye for detail noticed that there was a rather large hole on the bottom of Prince Harry’s shoe, proving that even royals know there’s nothing better than comfortably broken in footwear.

Turns out, the shoes seem to be a favorite pair of Harry’s, even if they are a little worn out. He sported the same pair, hole and all, back in April during a memorial service in London’s Trafalgar Square to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the murder of gang victim Stephen Lawrence.

Meghan, who celebrated her 37th birthday on Saturday, gave a friendly wave to the crowd during the outing while her top button had come undone, revealing a black lace camisole under her color-block, pleated shirtdress from Club Monaco.

Beaumont Etiquette founder and expert in all things proper, Myka Meier, tells PEOPLE that wardrobe malfunctions don’t qualify as breaking royal protocol — they’re simply accidents.

“Meghan did not break royal protocol when her bra showed, as accidents or wardrobe malfunctions are not considered going against dress code rules,” Meier explains. “Her bra showing was not believed to be deliberate, in which case she would have not been seen to be disrespectful by the palace.”

She adds, “A blatant disregard of a rule which was set in order to show respect would when you would consider a break in royal protocol, which the Duchess of Sussex did not do.”

Meghan was all smiles for her first birthday as an official royal after her own wedding in May.

Although the Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at the church separately, as Harry was with other close pals of the groom helping with arrangements and ushering duties, the pair were seen holding hands together at the ceremony, as Harry gazed approvingly at his wife.

While Harry tended to his duties, Meghan chatted with several women in attendance, including Celia McCorquodale, whose June wedding she previously attended with Harry.

LeToya Luckett Gets Engaged — with a Giant Diamond Ring — a Year After Divorce

LeToya Luckett is ready to walk down the aisle again!

The R&B singer is engaged to Texas businessman Tommicus Walker, she announced on Wednesday — sharing a stunning selfie of her jaw-dropping engagement ring on Instagram.

“I said, ‘Yes yeeeesssss’ on his Burfday!!” Luckett, 36, captioned the shot — adding the hashtags, “#issaengagement #GodShowedout #HesaGoodManSavanah #LoveWins #8/16/17.”

Her happy news comes a year after news broke that Luckett split from husband Rob Hillman, whom she married in January of 2016 and split from two months later. Their divorce was finalized last spring.

“Anytime you open up and allow yourself to love and love hard, that’s the risk you take of it possibly not working out,” she revealed to The Breakfast Club in May 2017. “And although we really did love and care for each other, it just didn’t turn out the way we wanted it to.”

RELATED VIDEO: Property Brother Drew Scott Gives The Details On His Wedding Proposal

Luckett — who was one of the original four members of Destiny’s Child and sang on hits such as “Say My Name” and “Jumpin’ Jumpin’” — was surprised by Walker’s proposal, and teared up when he dropped down to one knee in front of their friends and family (including his young daughter).

The happy moment was captured by Luckett’s brother Gavin, who shared it to Instagram. “That one time @letoyaluckett planned a surprise Bday dinner for @iamtwalk2 but he had a bigger surprise for her,” he explained in the caption. “Congrats y’all!!!”

Aside from wedding planning, Luckett is prepping to portray legendary pop and R&B singer Dionne Warwick in the upcoming biopic, Dionne. The film will follow Warwick’s early career spanning from 1962-1968, during which time she recorded some of her biggest hits including “Alfie” and “I Say a Little Prayer.”

Along with channeling Warwick in the movie, Luckett will also record the singer’s songs for the soundtrack.

Harrods Set to Sell Giant Diamond From Store’s Vault

ROCK OF AGES: It may not be as big as the Ritz, but the diamond that Harrods plans to display this month remains one whopper of a rock.
Weighing 228.31 carats, the pear-shaped diamond has, until now, spent much of its life in a safe deposit box at Harrods.
The owner, who has requested anonymity, is putting it up for sale, but not at auction, WWD has learned. The Harrods Diamond, as it’s known, will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Price is on application.
The Harrods Diamond will be available to view, by appointment at the store’s Fine Jewellery Room, from mid-December.
The Gemological Institute of America has graded the gem’s color as G, the top of the near-colorless class, while the clarity is VS1, a rare designation for a diamond of such proportions.
Harrods said items from its safe deposit boxes almost never come up for sale. This is also the first time the diamond has been displayed. Stones of that size and class are rarely sold outside auction.
“It is rare that stones of this weight, cut, polish and symmetry are sold outside auction, so this is an exceptional opportunity for Harrods’ customers and a very exciting moment in Harrods’ history,” said Helen

Edward Field Trying to Replicate American Giant Success

American Giant is an American success story: the San Francisco-based direct-to-consumer site has created a frenzy for its key product, a sweatshirt, that has been billed as “the greatest sweatshirt ever” on social media.
Since its founding in 2012, American Giant and its founder Bayard Winthrop, who produces everything in the U.S., has branched out into other products with additional success.
Now his brother Teddy is hoping to replicate that model with his own men’s accessories brand: Edward Field.
Teddy Winthrop worked with his brother on American Giant until deciding last year to create “a Day-Timer for the digital generation.”
He teamed with his friend Michael Menninger, who was looking for an exit strategy from his finance career, and together they created Edward Field.
Winthrop said that like American Giant, they set out to create one high-quality product that could address what they saw as the “phone-wallet conundrum.”
So Winthrop created a wallet that used a micro-suction technology to adhere the phone to the leather, along with several slots to hold credit cards and money. The wallets are manufactured in San Francisco and retail for $ 109 for leather and $ 69 for Cordura. A lizard option was recently added that will sell for $ 209.

7 Steps to Create Giant Success and Live a Fulfilled Life in the Process

2015-06-11-1434014278-9895737-ScreenShot20150611at11.17.36AM.png

NASA experts use what is called “the chain of events” to understand the root causes of failures. In this chain, a cause creates an effect that becomes the cause of a new effect and so on until the failure occurs. If multiple events can connect and lead to a failure, the opposite is true as well. There is a series of mental events that lead to massive success. Each event is the cause for another event. How can you apply this thinking to create authentic success, meaning and fulfillment in your life? Here’s the countdown:

Step 6
The final outcome that we want in our lives is to have great results. Nobody works for several years with the hope that maybe one day, if everything falls perfectly into place and if he’s lucky enough he will fail. We all want results and success as the final effect. What is the cause of this effect?

Step 5
Success is ensured through steady growth, exponential thinking, smart work, commitment and continuous learning. Overnight success usually requires many years of work. Nothing worthwhile is created quickly. What allows you to invest a lot of time and effort, to learn, to research and work hard until your dream becomes real?

Step 4
The mental forces that allow you to continue learning, working and growing are inspiration, drive and motivation. Educational systems are constantly looking for new ways to motivate their students to learn various disciplines; organizations are investing millions of dollars in motivational programs for their employees. These approaches create only a momentary spike of motivation that rapidly goes away with the stimulus. Neither are sustainable because they lack the rock solid inner personal foundation.

Step 3
The only way to trigger sustainable motivation, drive and inspiration is to live your life with a sense of purpose. When you make the decision to trust your heart, to live your values and to honor your passion, you will find purpose. If you don’t live your values, if you ignore your passion and if you don’t honor the intelligence of your heart, you will be empty and most likely experience a lot of emotional pain. You cannot create an inner conflict between the mind and the heart, you cannot lie to yourself about who you are, about your dreams and expect to live a fulfilled life.

Step 2
The most straightforward and probably the only authentic way to find a sense of purpose is to put your life in the honest perspective. Honesty is critical.

Step 1
You put your life in the honest (and correct) perspective by living the truth and by fully embracing reality. What is the most uncomfortable reality we all need to face in our lives?

2015-06-11-1434013837-2113114-ScreenShot20150611at11.10.11AM.png

“I will show you fear in a handful of dust”
– T.S. Eliot

Our time here on Earth is limited. The desert fathers in the remote monasteries of Egypt, the Greek orthodox monks on Mount Athos or the ancient shamans in Central America understood that death is the wisest and most reliable guide we have in life.

Without sadness or worry, you must fully embrace the fact that you don’t have time to doubt yourself, to live in self-pity, to postpone your dreams, to delay your life. You simply don’t have time for a meaningless, empty existence. Without the awareness of our limited time on Earth, everything around us is trivial and ordinary.

“All you have to do is write one true sentence.
Write the truest sentence that you know”
– Ernest Hemingway, Nobel Prize Laureate

Honesty without judgment is the secret door to peace and fulfillment, so think and feel the answer to these questions:

1. If your life ended in this moment, would you be fulfilled with how you have lived and what you have accomplished so far?

2. Would you be able to honestly say you have lived an authentic life?

3. What regrets do you have in life?

4. How can you live from now on without continuing to accumulate more and more regrets?

Leave a comment and tell me. We’re in this together.

For hundreds of years humanity has tried to answer the question – “is there life after death?” For the first time in your life you now must honestly answer the question:
Do you really have a life before death?

Your friend,
Dr. Dragos

PS: Go do something extraordinary. Because it’s never the extraordinary people who do the extraordinary. It’s the ordinary people like you and me, who get up off their knees and decide to take the journey. Because they complete the journey, ordinary people become extraordinary.

Nothing worthwhile is created quickly. What allows you to invest a lot of time and effort, to learn, to research and work hard until your dream becomes real?

Step 4
The mental forces that allow you to continue learning, working and growing are inspiration, drive and motivation. Educational systems are constantly looking for new ways to motivate their students to learn various disciplines; organizations are investing millions of dollars in motivational programs for their employees. These approaches create only a momentary spike of motivation that rapidly goes away with the stimulus. Neither are sustainable because they lack the rock solid inner personal foundation.

Step 3
The only way to trigger sustainable motivation, drive and inspiration is to live your life with a sense of purpose. When you make the decision to trust your heart, to live your values and to honor your passion, you will find purpose. If you don’t live your values, if you ignore your passion and if you don’t honor the intelligence of your heart, you will be empty and most likely experience a lot of emotional pain. You cannot create an inner conflict between the mind and the heart, you cannot lie to yourself about who you are, about your dreams and expect to live a fulfilled life.

Step 2
The most straightforward and probably the only authentic way to find a sense of purpose is to put your life in the honest perspective. Honesty is critical.

Step 1
You put your life in the honest (and correct) perspective by living the truth and by fully embracing reality. What is the most uncomfortable reality we all need to face in our lives?

“I will show you fear in a handful of dust”
– T.S. Eliot

Our time here on Earth is limited. The desert fathers in the remote monasteries of Egypt, the Greek orthodox monks on Mount Athos or the ancient shamans in Central America understood that death is the wisest and most reliable guide we have in life.

Without sadness or worry, you must fully embrace the fact that you don’t have time to doubt yourself, to live in self-pity, to postpone your dreams, to delay your life. You simply don’t have time for a meaningless, empty existence. Without the awareness of our limited time on Earth, everything around us is trivial and ordinary.

“All you have to do is write one true sentence.
Write the truest sentence that you know”
– Ernest Hemingway, Nobel Prize Laureate

Honesty without judgment is the secret door to peace and fulfillment, so think and feel the answer to these questions:

1. If your life ended in this moment, would you be fulfilled with how you have lived and what you have accomplished so far?

2. Would you be able to honestly say you have lived an authentic life?

3. What regrets do you have in life?

4. How can you live from now on without continuing to accumulate more and more regrets?

Leave a comment and tell me. We’re in this together.

For hundreds of years humanity has tried to answer the question – “is there life after death?” For the first time in your life you now must honestly answer the question:
Do you really have a life before death?

Your friend,
Dr. Dragos

PS: Go do something extraordinary. Because it’s never the extraordinary people who do the extraordinary. It’s the ordinary people like you and me, who get up off their knees and decide to take the journey. Because they complete the journey, ordinary people become extraordinary.

Giant Penis Sprays Confetti To Promote Safe Sex … Come Again?

When a man in a giant penis costume ejaculates confetti on people, you pay attention.

But are you thinking about practicing safe sex?

That’s the dilemma facing a wacky PSA in Norway to combat the increase in STDs there. “Penis can surprise you,” says the tagline in Norwegian.

The PSA was produced by the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (RFSU).

penis

A spokesperson for the Involve! agency behind the spot told the Mirror the commercial is intended to highlight the fun and naughtiness of sex, though admittedly many over 30 “thought the campaign was pointless and some went so far as to brand it banal and idiotic.”

Silly as it is, the video aims its use-a-condom message at 16- to 25-year-olds, the Telegraph reported. “This is a group that is not swayed by lecturing, facts or scaremongering, RFSU’s Christina Placht said.

The guy wearing the getup, 19-year-old student Philip van Eck, reportedly told a Norwegian outlet that he’s happy to do his part: “I thought it was hilarious. If I can help others, just by being a dick, there is nothing better.”

Japanese Shipping Company Advertises With … Giant Pettable Cat Head??

A Japanese shipping company is doing some strange things to convince consumers it’s the cat’s meow.

On Tuesday, Kuroneko Yamato — or Black Cat Yamato — installed a a giant billboard that is nothing but a humongous cat’s face at Tokyo’s Shibuya Station, according to Kotaku.com

The giant black cat face features plush, pettable fur, a nose with actual nostril holes big enough to fit a human han, and giant eyes that stare right through you, WTFark reports.

Although the billboard is attracting lots of selfies, it will be a while before w know if it increases business.

Kuroneko Yamato is no stranger to bizarre branding techniques.

Last July, Kuroneko Yamato started making employees wear pawprint gloves as a way to advertise that any parcels delivered by the company would be handled as delicately as a mother cat handles its own child, RocketNews24.com reports.

Oakland’s New Mayor Has Been Driving Around Town In A Giant Burning Man Snail Car

Libby Schaaf may very well be the first mayor of a major American city to ride around town in a flame-shooting Burning Man art car shaped like a giant snail. She notes that she may also be the only mayor of a major American city to have gone to Burning Man.

“To be fair, I went a long, long time ago,” she told The Huffington Post of her visit to the annual celebration of art and creative expression in the Nevada desert. “But the Burning Man community is a complete asset to the larger Oakland community.”

Voters in Oakland, California, elected Schaaf to the Bay Area city’s highest office in November. As part of her victory lap, she drove the snail car, the brainchild of local artist and blacksmith Jon Sarriugarte, through the streets to meet with constituents. On Monday, she drove her husband and two children to her inaugural ceremony downtown in the same mutant vehicle.

Schaaf arrives at her inauguration with her family at Oakland’s Paramount Theater on January 5.

And this Sunday, the snail will be out and about in all its fiery glory at Schaaf’s inaugural festival, which also features a parade of other Burning Man art cars along with fire dancers, musicians and food and drink purveyors — all of whom call Oakland home.

“It’s not your daddy’s inaugural ball,” Schaaf, a lifelong Oakland resident and graduate of the city’s public school system, said with a laugh.

Sarriugarte told HuffPost he’s been a longtime Schaaf supporter, having first met her while she was serving as an Oakland city councilwoman a handful of years ago. He volunteered for several mayoral campaign events, using the snail car as a conversation piece to attract voters.

“We would hold signs out on the street right next to a giant snail car shooting fire out of it,” he said. “I joked that if she won, we should drive her around in it.” Team Schaaf didn’t take it as a joke.

Schaaf with Sarriugarte.

One of the reasons Sarriugarte is such a fan of the mayor, he said, is because of her pledge to reinforce Oakland’s burgeoning community of artists and “makers.” “We have a wonderful make community,” he said. “I want to see industrial areas set aside for making and producing things … [Schaaf] is really good at taking feedback from the community.”

For her part, Schaaf said she pledges to build programs that foster the growth of local arts institutions, without pursuing developments that grow to be so big they eventually get pushed out. “What makes Oakland Oakland is our diversity and our incredible arts scene,” she said. “Our gritty industrial flavor, as well as our long history of embracing social movements. We are an incredibly creative place.”

Schaaf noted that one of her final initiatives as a councilwoman was to champion a law that requires private developers in Oakland give 1 percent of their project costs to benefit the public arts sector. The money helps create performance arts spaces, galleries and installations. And with nearby San Francisco becoming more unaffordable by the minute, many developers are looking toward Oakland as their next frontier.

Schaaf and her family greet supporters.

But Schaaf says it’s essential not to let new developments squeeze out the existing communities that make her city unique. “I’m very aware that we cannot sell our soul for growth,” she said. “Part of that soul is our artist community. That balance of growth and revitalization but preserving our Oaklandishness — our secret sauce — that’s an acute awareness I bring to this position.”

The Giant Floating Face in Japan’s Sky

In the sky over Utsunomiya, a city just over 60 miles north of Tokyo, there floats what looks like the head of a gigantic middle-aged man, a phenomenon that’s caused quite a stir among the locals. At nearly 50 feet long and 23 feet wide, it first appeared over the dry Kinugawa riverbed on the afternoon of December the 14. It is scheduled to make another appearance on December 20, this time right in the heart of the city of Utsunomiya, over Nishiki Elementary School.

This floating head project was created by the Utsunomiya Museum of Art as a way for people to enjoy works of art and design outside of a gallery setting, and also as a way of fostering communication and exchange. The “Middle-Aged-Guy in the Sky Day” project was proposed last year by a modern art team called “Me” (meaning “eye” or “eyes”).

Images of the faces of 218 men were collected on Union Street in the middle of Tokyo. From among those faces, one was chosen that was generally accepted to be the most “middle-aged-man-like,” and that face was drawn onto a balloon in three dimensions, incorporating thousands of tiny dots to create the pointillistic portrait. Then, another balloon filled with helium gas was inserted inside, and the huge face was able to take flight.
