I Wish I Lived in Wengie’s World!

Wengie hosts the most popular Asian beauty show in Australia on YouTube. This comes as no surprise, as she has a bubbly, outgoing personality and is absolutely gorgeous. Her video, “Morning Routine 2016”, provides a quick look into her day.
Wengie starts her day stirring around in bed. Her cat, Mikki, jumps onto the bed and crawls beneath the covers with her to cuddle until the alarm sounds. She gets out of bed right away, not allowing herself to hit the snooze button or to clutter her mind with social media. She brushes her teeth and rinses with mouthwash. After lip moisturizer is applied, she goes to the kitchen to prepare breakfast. She chops mushrooms and tomatoes, adds some vegetable stock and seasonings, and then steams this in the microwave. Wengie then adds avocado and fresh spinach. She heads over to her favorite corner by the window, and enjoys her breakfast while looking at the beautiful view. Wengie also watches a “Ted video”, which she describes as educational and motivational. Occasionally, she will sneak a peek at comments from her fans. After breakfast it’s time to clean and make the bed.
Next, it’s time for skincare. Wengie starts with toner, followed by a moisturizer and sunscreen. Then she dots on her favorite “Bb creme”. She then uses eyebrow mascara to accentuate her lovely eyebrows. She uses a little color on eyelids and cheeks, curls her eyelashes, and applies mascara.
Afterwards, she takes down the braided pigtails in which she slept, and finger combs her hair to create a relaxed, beach look. She applies gloss or lip color to her lips.
To finish her look, Wengie puts on her “super comfy summer outfit” – her ten-year-old denim shorts, a white t-shirt, and her Nike sneakers.

Professional Reputation Management for the Internet Age

Business professionals rely on their reputations to gain and keep their clients and business. In recent years, the internet has become a powerful tool for reputation management, and review sites like Yelp make it possible to grow an online reputation almost overnight. For job seekers, professional networking sites can also quickly help a person build a sound reputation. Unfortunately, the same hard earned reputation can easily be lost again just as quickly online without proper management. This costs businesses clients and money, and can cost job seekers crucial professional opportunities.

This is why many people with damaged reputations are seeking out online reputation management (ORM) services to mitigate reputation damage and build trust among customers. ORM providers recognize the value that everyday citizens place on the information found online. Rather than allowing negative information to remain unchallenged, ORM providers help professionals counter it and build a positive message instead.

Businesses and individuals alike will benefit from understanding the services provided by ORM teams and choosing the right provider for their needs. Better Reputation provides a wide suite of ORM services at competitive rates. They recognize both the value of reputation and how quickly it can be lost, and they work with professionals to build online reputations so business owners can focus on their business operations.

Better Reputation’s services are ethical and confidential and provided at competitive rates. No-obligation quotes are free, and the company prides itself on completing jobs thoroughly, at no cost to the customer if it takes longer than estimated. When recovering from a PR misstep, professionals should consider ORM services from providers who recognize the essential value of reputation.

Securus Technologies Moving Forward With Inmate Communication

Securus Technologies is one of the leading American prison technologies companies out there. I have been following them on PR Newswire. I know that they were very active in increasing security and have developed things, like a big data and algorithm system that can help the inmate security officers ensure that inmates were not using communication services to say or plan something incriminating.
But Securus Technologies is also one of the only companies that has been attempting to expand and improve the communication platform available to inmates and their families. I have seen them grow from regular phone calls to embracing some of the new technologies available to us today. This includes video visitation, which is going to revolutionize the way that inmates stay connected to their families. The reason that Securus has been active in this front is they believe that inmates rehabilitate better when they feel connected to those that they love.

What Securus also understands is that many families have a lot to do. Most of them do not have the time to make that big drive to visit their loved ones. Some families cannot even afford too many visits, which makes it easier for inmates to feel despair and loneliness. This is something that Securus wanted to help stop, and they have taken a large leap forward by introducing video calling services as an app. Yes, the app is available to both iPhone users as well as android users. The app can be downloaded to any smart device such as a smartphone, tablet, or may be even a video console. The technology is very simple and payment can be done over the internet, too.

One of the best things about this announcement according to Crunchbase experts is that the payment is going to be relatively low when compared to other communication choices. Another great thing is that it allows the inmate and their loved ones to talk from anywhere. The family member does not have to leave his or her home to visit the inmate. Of course, this technology is just in addition to some of the other things offered by Securus. This includes emails and voice mails that can be heard afterwards. Emails can include videos of a loved one or an inmate as well. It is clear to see that communication between inmates and loved ones is improving, and we can all thank Securus Technologies; they are improving technology.

Queens of Drama’s Crystal Hunt

The series Queens of Drama is a fantastic new reality show drama starring many soap opera actors that are upcoming breakout stars in the field. One of the most fabulous of those is the actress Crystal Hunt who portrays herself.

Crystal Hunt is perhaps most famous outside of Queens of Drama for portraying the character of Stacy Morasco on the long running soap opera My Life to Live. Her tenure on the show lasted around one year, from 2009 to 2010, and her role was one of the most memorable in the shows history. She first appeared as a stripper from Las Vegas that was following her sister back to her hometown. When she arrived on the show, she did everything in her power to steal away her sisters girlfriend. Her plotline contained many twists and turns and she proved to be one of the most vibrant faces on the show and was a character that all those who watched the series would remember.  There are some cool highlights of Crystal Hunt’s time as Stacy on YouTube.

Her role in Queens of Drama is clearly more subdued, as she is actually playing herself, but is no less entertaining than her turns on the various soap operas. Crystal often assures fans on Facebook that the program is scripted and has the ability to dissipate the line between fiction and reality. She has stated that the character she plays in Queens of Drama is something that expands on the role she took on during her time in soap operas. This can be likened to the famous classic soap opera star Joan Collins who was similarly over the top during her performance. Collins also makes an appearance on the show.

It will be interesting to see how the fans of the reality stars react to seeing the lines between fact and fiction blurred as Queens of Drama takes off. It is a very innovative take on the reality show genre and it should allow it’s stars to portray their dramatic selves in a way that’s true to themselves. Judging from early fan reaction, it seems that many fans of these stars are just happy to see their favorite actors still on television. As they say, “the show must go on” for those in show business and it looks like Crystal Hunt and the rest of the Queens will be in show business for quite some time to come.  Follow Crystal on her photography site, which features her entire portfolio.

The Hooded Sweatshirt is Everything You Want

For years, you have been cultivating the perfect “model off duty” look. You want to mix high and low pieces to appear casual, yet impeccably groomed. The newest addition to your laid-back wardrobe is something you might already have a few of: the hooded sweatshirt.

From Selena Gomez to Hailey Baldwin, all fashion’s “It” Girls are wearing versions of this comfy-cool staple. What’s the appeal of a basic hooded sweatshirt? First of all, this piece is available at every price point. You can find a decently made one at everywhere from Topshop to Rag and Bone. Celebrities on crunchbase.com have even been spending seven bills on this one from French designer Vetements – but that’s not necessary to achieve the cool factor.

Moreover, you can pair a hooded sweatshirt with almost anything to customize your look and suit your personal style on retailmenot.com. Kendall Jenner styled hers with a jean jacket and leather skinnies, while Karlie Kloss paired hers with the whitest white sneakers and an army green jacket.

Not quite sure of your personal style? Take the quiz at JustFab. You simply answer the questions and click on the pieces you naturally gravitate towards. Then JustFab, the mail-order fashion subscription service will send pieces (shoes, jewelry, denim, handbags – whatever!) just right for you. That way, you will know exactly how to style your hooded sweatshirt, or other favorite piece, to reflect your personal style.

Finally, in JustFab the appeal of the hooded sweatshirt is the obvious: it is like the clothing version of comfort food! This piece is cute but not revealing (so you don’t feel obligated to self-tan). It’s warm enough to wear walking the streets of New York and comfortable enough to wear on an airplane. Best of all, you look effortlessly chic and authentically you. Let’s hope this look is here for the long-term.

A Golden Opportunity For Financial Security

You’ve heard all the news and the tips before; save for retirement, invest, build your assets, etc. The nation is bombarded with these messages of saving money for emergencies and the later years, which is crucial to staying out of debt, bankruptcy, and financial ruin.

Many people choose to invest their money so it can grow interest in the long term. Investing takes all kinds of shapes, from Money Market Accounts and CD’s to Stocks and Bonds. Investing is a smart way to build a nice nest egg or emergency fund. Many people choose to invest in their favorite companies or simply let their bank grow it in a special account – https://www.usmoneyreserve.com/why-buy-gold/.

There is, however, an investment choice that has stood the test of time long after company stocks have disappeared and bank’s interest rates have gone down. That investment is precious metals, specifically gold.

Gold, platinum, and silver have been valuable ever since economics was born. The reason for that is simply because of their rarity. What is rare is more valuable than something that is common.

A precious metal like gold has gone up and down in value over the years, but in the long term, it’s value ticks upward as it becomes more rare. The U.S. government prints more paper money every day, making it more common and gold rarer still.

Because gold continues to grow in value, smart investors have chosen to buy physical gold while it is at a temporarily low price, knowing that it will soon be worth a great deal again. Some investors then sell their gold at a very high market value, gaining a healthy profit.

Others hang onto their gold in the event of another Great Depression or equally catastrophic event that would wreck the economy. Either way, gold is steadfastly one of the most stable investments an individual can make. If you as an investor, decide to purchase into the gold market, there is an easy way to do so.

The US Money Reserve is a company that mints and sells gold coins in exchange for money. They also deal in silver and platinum. Their mission is to provide gold investors with the physical metal they seek.

Gold News Network published an article that they even have retirement plans available in the form of precious metals. Instead of mining gold yourself, you can purchase gold from the US Money Reserve right on their website. They have the market value of gold on their main webpage, so you can buy it at a low price and make a nice profit. Happy investing!
