FOUR years since we all fell in love at first sight with the very emotional and beautiful song written by Kylie and performed at the KylieX2008 tour and 4 years since we've been waiting for this to happen, sometimes even losing hope as time was passing by. But the confirmation of the Orchestral Album release later this year gave us another wave of faith and this month, barely catching our breaths after the August #K25 surprise, we got the news about upcoming releases - guess what's scheduled for the September 24th-25th release?

*MAIN UPDATE: September 17th, 2012*
Everyone who participated: Kylie RECEIVED the "K25 - TimeBook" and THANKED everyone involved! :D WHOOP!!!

ONE Book, THIRTY ONE pages, in just TWO weeks over ONE HUNDRED #Lovers united to make this super special project for the little woman with a HUGE heart, Kylie Minogue, possible!
It took about a month to come up with the idea of not a regular scrap book, but something a little more unique and unusual - and now it is almost finished and ready to be sent!
With the brainstorming help of some fans, hands and blogs, "time and sweat" of others and creativity of all people participating, I can assure you - Kylie won't be bored!! ;)

The book initially was meant to be just a little something celebrating #K25 year, but Kylie-Uniting-Power has proven to be unlimited once again - it turned out to be a more than 100 entry one celebrating KYLIE!

So, making your August #K25 day even more exciting, today I am revealing the COVER of the
"K25 TimeBook" ;)

This blog post will be updating - I will be revealing every page of the book, so everyone who participated can find themselves in it :) also a VIDEO of the book (to see how it works - remember, it's not just a book ;) will be posted soon as well!
P.S. Pages pictures will be posted the way you won't be able to read people's messages out of respect of everyone's privacy!

*September UPDATE*
As promised, a little video of how the book works :) 
Half of the messages were already put inside, although pages looked slightly different when the Book was finished.

Kylie's August #K25 Surprise!

Whoop, we wanna wanna!! :))
#KylieBTI is what should be tweeted TODAY at 12p.m. UK time to unlock a very "anticipated video"!
The hashtag itself gave us no clue until:

The new "Beat The Intro - Kylie K25" App became available on iTunes - it "celebrates 25 years of amazing music sung by the lovely Kylie Minogue, but are you good enough to guess them, and quick enough to win fantastic prizes? What's you favourite ever image of Kylie? Do you fancy having a personalised signed version in your house? Obtain 3 stars on the 10 track and the 30 track game and it could be you receiving a giant signed image of Kylie to your front door. The faster you answer the more chance you have to win those stars."

But this was just the FIRST surprise of the day - so don't forget to tune on Twitter & kylie.com/tweettounlock page to find out what Kylie&Team have as a surprise VIDEO for this month! ;)


And here we are - our August #K25 video surprise is the amazing Anti Tour's Tightrope!
One of fans' most favorite non-single/album songs out there Miss kylie Minogue performed during her incredible mini Anti Tour in March ;) It definitely IS the anticipated video! Thanks Kylie & Co.!

it all began with tweeting... well... not right away, because as soon as the clock struck 12 p.m. UK time, what WE saw was "Tweet #BTIKylie now" instead of #KylieBTI :) but thanks to Kylie - everything was fixed&both were counted towards the video unlocking process:

And here we go! #2 trending topic WW&UK for over 20 minutes and that's not all!

Then Kylie got in the mood if giving us a clue :D

Lance Armstrong: Lifetime Ban And No Tour de France Titles?

Shocking!! No other words... I admire this cyclist and person, what he's done for sport, his courage and desire to fight for life against testicular cancer and Livestrong charity he created...

“I know who won those seven tours, my team-mates know who won those seven tours, and everyone I competed against knows who won those seven tours. Nobody can ever change that” (Armstrong)
Armstrong’s attorneys sent a letter to USADA today saying he won’t fight drug allegations by the agency that the cyclist called part of an “unconstitutional witch hunt.”

“We will have an official release tomorrow (UPDATE: Read Lance Armstrong's Statement), but he will be banned for life and loss of results since Aug 1, 1998,” Annie Skinner, a USADA spokeswoman, said in an email.

“If I thought for one moment that by participating in USADA’s process I could confront these allegations in a fair setting and - once and for all - put these charges to rest, I would jump at the chance,” Armstrong said in a letter. “But I refuse to participate in a process that is so one-sided and unfair.” 

Armstrong, 40, won the Tour de France every year from 1999 to 2005, a record for the sport’s most prestigious race. He survived testicular cancer early in his career, and created Livestrong, a charity that has raised more than $470 million for the fight against cancer, according to its website.

(For all information considering the case, please read --> The Telegraph article! <--)

Kylie At Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Launch Party!

The Olympic party isn't over yet: Kylie Minogue poses with Olympians Alex Partridge, Emily Pidgeon, Jenna Randall, Victoria Pendleton, Laura Trott, Asha Randall, Jason Kenny and Andrew Osagie at the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 launch party, which took place on August 15th (well, more like 16th ;)).

Samsung Electronics is taking another shot at the dominance of Apple's iPad with a tablet equipped with a digital pen and a faster processor at the same price tag. Apple's latest iPad starts at the same price but the Note 10.1 offers some features that the iPad does not have, while its screen resolution is lower than the iPad's.
It is Samsung's first Android tablet equipped with a digital pen and can run two applications side-by-side on a screen divided in half. The split screen, made possible by the quad-core processor and two gigabytes of RAM, can be useful when taking notes while watching a video or surfing the Internet.
(you can find out more about it HERE)

Meanwhile, this is what Kylie's been busy with! She left us all wondering what that was all about tweeting the picture of her "today's kit" on August 14th:

Now it all makes sense - she was rehearsing a little gig for the launch party in UK!
(rehearsing before the party, August 15th in Dolce&Gabbana leopard-print dress. SHOES!! <:D )

And later that night rocking the dance-floor in a very sparkly pink mini-dress (by Roberto Cavalli), performing some of her biggest hits! (SHOES (again)!!)

All The Lovers:

Can't Get You Out Of My Head:


(Many thanks to IBIY from Sayhey for download links!!)

(according to Twitter users who were lucky to be there, Kylie performed All The Lovers, Wow, Can't Get You Out Of My Head, Better the Devil You Know and Locomotion)

I bet everyone had a Kylietastic night! ;)

And the sweet couple, Kylie and boyfriend Andres, leaving the event together later that night, looking gorgeous!
