Let’s Talk About Taylor and Tumblr

Social Media, Taylor Swift, Tumblr

T-Swizzle. T-Dawg. TayTay. Taylor Swift. This pop star has been a busy bee lately in preparation for her new album 1989 (due Oct. 27).

We could talk about about Shake It Off and her feud with Katy Perry. But no.

LET’S GET REAL & TALK ABOUT TAYLOR’S TUMBLR

She likes to re-blog goofball gifs and vines of herself, as well as posting pics of Meredith Swift (her precious cat, who has her own twitter account..that Hannah Spears follows.. which is Britney’s dog.. where is this going?!)

If you are a Tumblr rat like Taylor, you may recognize this post from your Dashboard…

This on going post often brings a lol to the tumblr community, but what’s really great is that BECKY DID NOT DIE! Yes, Taylor got into the joke this week sporting her snazzy top.

Up Your Selfie Game

App, Social Media, Technology

Every time you blink, three people around the world have taken a selfie. (I made that up, just go with it).

Getting the perfect selfie can be a struggle. How many times do you have to take 40 snaps to delete them all ? From the lighting, to the angle, to the filter you pick, taking a selfie is turning into a serious form of art.

Hopefully this post will give you guidance and inspiration to achieve your selfie dreams.

You need to stand out from the crowd. Don’t be basic and just hold your phone to take a selfie. No. Make an investment. Make a statement. Purchase a selfie stick, BECAUSE YOUR ARM JUST IS NOT LONG ENOUGH (no offence).

Selfie-Stick

If you really want to up your selfie game and have true respect from your peers, you must acquire the selfie hairbrush. It is a brush. It is a case. IT IS A WAY OF LIFE. It also comes in three colours, which is a triple win situation!

The only natural lighting the selfie world accepts is at the golden hour. So filters are a must. Don’t be afraid of a filter sandwich because sometimes a stack of filters make the perfect picture.

Selfies-GIFS

Instagram obviously has a great source of filters, and there are plenty more apps in the app store to enhance your photos such as:

SpaceEffect (Free)
Snapseed (Free)
Litely (Free with paid add-ons)
Afterlight ($0.99)

Good luck selfie kings and queens.

Katy Perry- This Is How We Do

Katy Perry, New Music, YouTube

Chanel, twerking ice cream, watermelon, pizza and everything that is important in life is blown up and thrown into Katy’s new music video.

The single is a fun and fresh summer track, taken from ‘PRISM’ (which boasts a number of killer tunes).

BTW where can I buy a pizza swimming costume ?!

Paris Hilton – “Come Alive” (Bright New Video)

New Music, Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton is back with her new music video for “Come Alive”, which basically looks like a fairytale explosion on ecstasy.

Paris is no stranger to the music industry, releasing her first single “Stars Are Blind” back in 2006. Since then Paris has dabbled in DJing as well as trillions of other projects. Whether you hate her, love her, or really confused by her, Paris just does whatever she wants because at the end of the day… She is Paris Hilton. So expect a second album soon. giphy (2) Pros of the Music Video: -Make-Up is perfection. -It all seems very Victoria Secret. -There is a unicorn (bonus points). Cons of the Music Video: – To begin with I thought it was a recreation of “Only Girl” by Rihanna. – It all seems very safe. Paris should rap. Kanye style. Maybe. tumblr_maewhwnIwZ1rfduvxo1_500

Kristen Stewart Is The Man

New Music

Jenny Lewis released her music video for Just One Of The Guys this week, starring a few of her famous friends. This is a new single taken from her album The Voyager, which is Jenny’s first solo album in six years.

Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway, Tennessee Thomas and Brie Larson all star in the music video, dressed up as a bunch of dudes.

Sporting Adidas tracksuits and ratty moustaches, I can’t say they make the most handsome of men … but Kristen does look like she is having the time of her life.

Keeping Up With Kris Jenner

Kardashian

Keeping Up With The Kardashians has graced our TV’s since 2007, providing us with entertainment, drama and life long lessons.

Cutting to the chase, this blog post is simply a bit of appreciation for Kris Jenner because she is a fabulous crazy lady.

Kris understands the struggles in the society of youth today, including the importance of having good cell phone reception.

tumblr_mavw2grUpa1rbt2y7o1_r1_500

Her Momager vibes are strong and supportive.

And her selfie game will knock you out of the park.

tumblr_n6y9t1fylk1qf4ywho2_500

Kris can rock any look and style and get away with it, and if you don’t like it, she won’t care.

tumblr_m4ugijePl81rwighno1_500

Even though she is slightly cray cray…

tumblr_m9tk9duFV61qhwkkdo1_500

And can sometimes have her off days (nobodys perfect)…

tumblr_m6g4eogpU51qinkf9o1_500

Kris Jenner is our favourite Kardashian, that is not really a Kardashian, but used to be a Kardashian, so is still a Kardashian, Kardashian.

The End

#CandidlyNicole From Web Series to TV

Nicole Richie, Social Media, TV, Twitter

Nicole Richie is back! (Not that she really went anywhere, but just go with it).

m

Nicole earned her reality star status in The Simple Life. If you haven’t seen the show, seek help. No really. The Simple Life was 2003’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians, staring former BFF Paris Hilton.

tumblr_lsg856oOVS1ql5yr7o1_400

What we learnt from The Simple Life today, is that Nicole Richie is a living meme/gif. So who wouldn’t want to watch the sassy star back on our screens?!

Nicole began her web series #CandidlyNicole in 2013 and the lols began.

Hosted by AOL, the mini series ran 20 episodes of the style star based on her irreverent twitter feed. And in true Nicole fashion she tackled each show with her witty unfiltered sense of humour.

tumblr_msgyz9INT41rp25b8o1_400

The Socialmedialite explored many subjects from tramp stamps to fashion advice. Many of the episodes also featured her close friends and family members, including the legendary Lionel.

With great success, #CandidlyNicole is upgrading from an internet series to a television show (yey). Check out the trailer below.

The show is set to air Thursday, July 17th, on VH1.
