Coachella and Wengie: Fashion Inspirations for Every Age

When beauty blogger, Wengie, realized she needed to educate herself on various blogging platforms she had no idea it would launch her into internet stardom. Now boasting a massive one million (and counting) followers on her blog, she continues to grow as a blogger and role model to young girls and women everywhere. Giving her take on everything beauty and life, she engages her fans with her insightful and fabulous posts and videos.

One thing that Wengie really focuses on is giving her fans what they want, not just what she wants. This means talking about things that are important to her followers. For younger girls (and boys) she has a channel to offer advice on the challenges they might be facing in life. For beauty fanatics, she loves to give tutorials and insight into the latest trends and styles.

Another great leader in the fashion and beauty world is the massive music event, Coachella. Gracing the state of California every year, the music festival coaxes out celebrities from all over. This year Coachella saw long, luxurious locks and a mixture of fabulously nude makeup trends as well as wild and wacky ones. Nude lips, green lips, face jewels, and natural bronzers were rampant at the 2016 music festival, signaling a start to spring and summer fashion around the country.

If you are trying to stay up to date on the latest hair trends, one to follow is the long, beautiful locks that were seen at Coachella this year. While many celebrities showed up with expensive hair extensions, you can save a buck or two by investing in a good quality boar bristle brush to grow your hair out. These brushes are great for encouraging hair growth because they distribute oil from root to end, providing proper nourishment for your hair. In addition to this, the bristles stimulate the scalp which encourages hair growth.

No matter what look you go with, Coachella and Wengie are both great influences to turn your eyes to this coming season. Long hair and bold lips are everywhere, so don’t forget to invest in a good brush and a great lip color. Cheers to the coming summer!

What App is Your Daughter Using? Most Likely Skout

Technology changes so fast. It is every parent’s worst nightmare getting caught up on the wrong side of technology. It is important to know what your young ones are doing online. Today we discuss how today’s teen meet and what apps they use in their daily interactions.

 

Before you go snooping on your daughter, it is important to know that communication is important. Seek to be their friend and understand their needs.

 

One category of apps is microblogging apps. These include Instagram, which allows one to share a picture of a 15-second video. It can lead your daughter to develop low self-esteem as it can be tied to the number of likes he or she receives.

 

Tumblr is also a type of blogging platform that allows one to tweet their blogs. It has less control and can at times be intrusive. If your son blogs intimate details of their life, it is possible for that information to be shared for anyone to see on the internet. Twitter allows you to post 140-word characters while Vine is all about 6-second looping video clips. It is a fun way to express yourself creatively, but there is inappropriate content displayed sometimes.

 

The last section is the chatting, meeting and dating apps. Here the apps allow people to meet and establish relationships. Meet me enables you to set connections while Omegle allows you sometimes to chat in a video.

 

Skout is the most popular of all. It allows one to chat up and meet people of your choice based on a set of filters. It is the easiest dating app there is. Should you find your teenager using Skout, there is no need for alarm. It is the most secure app for a teenager to use because it uses the users age to filter access to several features.

 

Skout was the 1st dating app to emphasize location as a filter. It allows one to get access to people within your area. It today has 10 million active users and 500 million registered users.

 

Skout was founded in 2007 by Christian Wiklund and Niklas Lindstrom.It was initially a socializing app but was relaunched in 2009 as a dating app.It has since grown and has spawned other apps like Fuse and Nixer.It is also available in 14 languages in 180 countries.
