Quick & Easy Beauty Routines

Makeup is one of the main reasons it rules to be a female. With the flick of a wand, you can recreate your whole look (guys are pretty much limited to getting their eyebrows in order). Here are some basic beauty routines to keep in your arsenal, and to keep your look on fleek at all times:

-If you have only 5 minutes to get yourself together, choose these three cosmetics to uplift your look: undereye concealer, mascara, and bronzer. Done!

-Make sure to remove your makeup every night to avoid buildup and acne; also, as makeup remover can be drying, so don’t forget to moisturize your skin after you remove your makeup! Full circle, ladies!

-Night time is an excellent time to apply rejuvenating creams to your face. Research a cream that will help you with whatever you’d like to improve on your skin, and splurge for it. Literally think about how little effort it takes. Apply cream of your choice to your face, sleep for 8 hours. Just do it!

-ALWAYS make sure you have red lipstick in your bag. This one item can literally take you from day to whatever type of night you want to have!

-Best beauty tip of all? Drink lots of water & stay hydrated! This keeps your skin cells refreshed in a way that no beauty cream can! Second best tip? Sunscreen every day (yes, even in winter!)! This is the best way to prevent sun damage and premature aging to your skin! After all, you need a good foundation to start off any makeup routine.

Lastly, don’t forget to smile — it’s your best accessory!

Recap: TommyLand

Tommy Hilfiger has been an iconic designer and brand for a few decades now. However, after last Wednesday’s “TommyLand” fashion show in Venice, California, it’s clear he isn’t going anywhere for a while.

TommyLand was part fashion show, part amusement park, with carnival rides, food trucks, and even fire throwers. The show set out to showcase TommyXGigi, Hilfiger’s collaboration line with model Gigi Hadid. Gigi, of course, rocked the runway, as did many other models of the moment, including Gigi’s sister, Bella Hadid, Joan Smalls, and Hailey Baldwin.

There were also many famous faces in the audience, including Lady Gaga, Kaia Gerber (Cindy Crawford’s look-alike daughter), and Kris Jenner. As if that weren’t enough, there was also a performance after the show by none other than Fergie. It was definitely a completely star-studded event.

 The best part? Hilfiger’s designs were instantly shoppable for the show’s guests at pop-up style stores within the amusement park. How fun! It definitely sounds like a night to remember. And you can join in on the fun, by watching the show via Tommy Hilfiger’s website!

Move Over, Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day, the most romantic day of the year, is just around the corner. However, it can be a little lonely if you’re single. This is why on February 13th of each year is the best day for girls around the world, regardless of whether they’re single or taken. That’s right, ladies, it’s almost Galintine’s Day, a day to celebrate with your female friends in the girliest of ways!

Here are some ideas for the perfect Galintine’s Day party:

-A potluck brunch, complete with mimosas and sangria! Every gal can bring their specialty dish (don’t forget some sweet desserts)!

-As for activities, plan on anything from a dance-off to crafting it up. Choose anything from bedazzling picture frames, making sparkly finger-paint art, or even taking a stab at making jewelry – the possibilities are endless!

-Galintine’s Day is the perfect day for a clothing swap! Tell all your friends to bring clothes they no longer want, and everyone will likely go home with a couple new pieces of clothing that they’re in love with. One woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure!

-Alternatively, you can plan a Secret Santa-like gift give. Pick names out of a hat, and get a surprise for the person you chose, so everyone goes home feeling the love! To make it extra special, include a card telling your friend something you love about them!

Happy Galintine’s Day!

Beytwice

Queen Bey has thrown a curve at the world yet again, and this time, it’s times two: Beyonce announced Wednesday that she is pregnant with twins! She made this news public via a series of very artsy pictures that feature her growing belly. They feature her surrounded by flowers and wearing just a bra and draped fabric over her bottom, to show off the main attraction: Beyonce’s twin-filled belly! One especially sweet photo features Bey accepting a flower from her daughter, Blue Ivy. She then released a series of underwater photos of newly-preggo Beyonce. Fun fact: one of her pregnancy photos is currently the most-liked photo in the history of Instagram, with a current total of 8.6 million likes!

Not to worry, Beyhive! At this point in time, Beyonce still plans to perform at both Coachella and the 2017 Grammies. We’re sure this will be a couple of her most inspired performances yet!

Recap: Miss Universe 2017!

On Sunday night, Miss Universe 2017 was crowned, and she was none other than Iris Mittenaere of France. France hasn’t had a Miss Universe since 1953, so there is a lot to celebrate. Of course, it was a close contest, with Raquel Pelissier of Haiti, and Andrea Tovar of Colombia, also coming in as finalists (Miss Haiti was first runner up and Miss Colombia was second runner up). The best part about all of this? Steve Harvey announced the correct winner this year, sparing us all from the awkwardness of the wrong person receiving the crown and then having it taken off their head! Bravo Steve Harvey!

This year proved to be a particularly interesting year for the pageant, as questions on politics took on more weight as we have just witnessed an extremely controversial election. It did give us a bit more insight as to who the contestants were, and where they stood on issues that we all have on our minds these days.

All in all, the contestants were gorgeous, and it was amazing to watch Iris take the honor of Miss Universe on behalf of her country.

Ellen Meets Mom of Quadruplets from Viral Video!

After seeing a viral video of Ashley, mom to quadruplets, hiding in her pantry for a rare moment alone while snacking on Twizzlers and relishing her moment to herself, Ellen just had to meet this family in person. So Ashley, her husband, and their four (!) 2-year-old girls took a trip to visit Ellen. Ashley was extremely upbeat despite what sounds like a grueling routine, but it’s easy to see why she was in such good spirits once the four little bundles of joy were brought out! Well, more like ran out, and took over the stage, walking around every which way while Ellen attempted to reign in the chaos!

It wouldn’t be Ellen if she didn’t have a couple surprises up her sleeve, and this was no exception. She first brought out a portable pantry for Ashley, complete with closing doors and space for her Twizzlers, so she can escape whenever she needs to! Then came the real surprise… Ellen revealed that the entire family would be going on vacation to Hawaii! How’s that for a getaway from a daily routine?

Take Us To Lala Land

There’s no way to escape the magic of “Lala Land,” a Hollywood musical starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone that has taken the box office by storm. Two struggling artists meet and fall in love, but as they make strides in their careers, waves are made in how to adjust their relationship to their changing realities. That’s where the magic comes in… enter singing and dancing, all with Los Angeles as the backdrop to this fantastical show.

And people have already taken note to this whirlwind of this movie. It’s already won 6 Golden Globe awards, and it is nominated for an astonishing 14 awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Director, to name a few. Our advice? Definitely catch this movie while it’s still in theaters to get in on the magic, and don’t forget to tune in to the Academy Awards on February 26th to see how Lala Land and the other great flicks of the year do!

Golden Globes Fashion 2017

Another year of an amazing Golden Globe Awards, and of course, along with that comes amazing celeb fashion! Here’s our rundown of 2017’s best dressed at the awards show:

-Emma Stone looked stunning in silver, as she wore a custom –designed Valentino gown with a deep-V neckline and dreamy silver stars placed along the bodice of the dress. Her Tiffany’s diamond necklace perfectly completed her look.

-Emily Ratajkowski looked like a dream in a pale yellow Reem Acra gown with crazy slits and a sparkly silver panel holding the whole thing together. She completely nailed her look, complete with jewels by H. Stearn.

-Sofia Vergara all but stole the show in her embroidered gold Zuhair Murad dress, which, although was long and had long sleeves, still showed a little skin via sheer material and shoulder cut-outs, and the dress hugged her body perfectly. In short: she looked fab.

There were too many other fashion stars to mention here, but it was certainly a fashionable feast for the eyes!

The Obamas Sign Off

On Tuesday night, President Barack Obama gave his farewell speech, and it was as beautiful, classy, and inspiring as you would imagine it to be. He touched on how it is the duty of all of us, as citizens, to progress towards whatever changes we believe in, as that is how he got his start in politics, many years ago. In the wake of a very divisive presidential election, he also encouraged us to stand together despite our differences. But perhaps the sweetest part of this epic speech was his shout-out to his wife, Michelle, whom he called his “best friend,” as well as his daughters, and last but certainly not least, vice-president Joe Biden. It was inspiring and emotional, and truly a historic moment in U.S. history.

Just as amazing was Michelle Obama’s farewell speech, which she gave the previous Friday. She strongly encouraged young people to believe in themselves and stay focused, and to know that they belong. She also brought up the importance of getting a good education, noting that she and Barack had set out on their political journey with their educations and the simple belief that they could do anything they put their mind to. She ended with saying, “I hope I’ve made you proud,” and she has indeed.

Next up is Donald Trump getting inaugurated on January 20th… stay tuned! But we’re crossing our fingers that this isn’t the end of Obama/Biden memes… those will never get old!

New Year, New You: Resolution Tips

Here we are in January again, that lovely time of year when we resolve to make all kinds of lifestyle changes in hopes of bettering ourselves. There’s something about a brand new year that brings so much promise, and you can certainly fulfill any promises to yourself that you set out to fulfill. Here are a couple ideas for setting resolutions that won’t sabotage themselves before you get to February.

-Instead of resolving to lose weight, resolve to get healthy. Your weight is just a number on the scale, while your health encompasses all aspects of your being. Focus on eating healthier foods and finding a type of exercise that suits you, rather than lowering a number that is subject to change for a variety of reasons.

-Instead of resolving to buy things, resolve to pay off debt and save. Sure, we all need to splurge once in a while (especially on clothes, since we wear clothes every day), but if splurging is all you do, then you will always have debt hanging over you. Just pay off your bills rather than racking up interest on them once and for all, and while you’re at it, put a little money away, in case of emergency.

-If you’ve resolved to be more social, do it face to face, rather than via social media. In the era of social media, just a couple taps on your phone, and you’ve wished an old friend a happy birthday. Here’s an idea, give that friend a call with your wishes. Or better yet, make plans to see them in person. Once you’re hearing your friend’s voice, or finally meeting up with them, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do this sooner.

Most importantly, whatever decisions you make, make sure they come from your gut, and are true to you. As long as you’re progressing into who you truly want to be, there’s no way you can fail. Happy New
