Nicole Sahebi Is TikToks Newest Trend Maker

Hello everyone we had the amazing chance to interview Nicole. She loves to make great tiktoks. She currently has 50.9k followers on Instagram. Make sure you checkout her page.

How old are you? 

I am 16!

You have some funny tiktoks! What is the process of you making the videos?

Most of my tiktoks revolve around things I do daily! For example every time i’m getting ready to go somewhere, I just record it.

As for the ones with a little more humor, it’s always based on something that’s actually happened.

How do you get ideas for the tiktoks you make?

I get ideas for the tiktoks I make through my daily lifestyle. Every tiktok is based on something that has or is happening in my life.

I never sit down to think about what video I should make, rather I make tik toks whenever I feel something I’m doing is worthy to be recorded. 

What is your favorite thing about tiktok?

My favorite thing about tiktok is the influence creators have on their audience. Though in some cases this can be very bad, most of the creators I see daily are amazing influences.

I get messages all the time about how I’ve helped people become more confident and positive! 

What are plans for the future? 

In the future, I plan on going to college and focusing on a Business Major. I want to start my own clothing line first, and take it from there

Do you have any advice for teens in your field?

Advice I have for teens in my field is to make the most of technology! Use it as a resource. Many teens hate social media because of the toxicity that we just can’t ignore.

But if we focus on the bigger and better things apps like Instagram, TikTok, and Youtube have to offer, we can use it to our advantage.

My best advice is grow your platforms because in the future it may be very beneficial if you are to focus on a business major.

Ava Stanford Dishes on the Future of HYALINE

Meet your new obsession: HYALINE COSMETICS!

The newly-launched brand — headed by Ava Stanford — is all about embracing and embellishing the best parts of your inner AND outer beauty. “Because why not show off your natural you with a little flair,” the site poses. We couldn’t agree more!

To celebrate the collection, which features cheek, lip, eye and nail products, we caught up with the 15-year-old budding beauty and makeup mogul (and younger sister of Why Don’t We‘s Jack Avery) to get the inside scoop on what fans can expect to see next out of the glittering line of must-haves. The best part? Ava even teased a coming-soon eye product that’ll be available in just a couple of weeks!

What inspired you to launch your brand?
Ava: HYALINE [is another word for] glossy/transparent. I wear a lot of natural makeup because I have a lot of freckles, and I don’t like covering them up. I think it’s best to bring out your natural beauty, but…like me…people [still] like to bling it up sometimes, so I wanted to create a makeup line that could be natural but [still] blingy.

Have you always had a love of makeup?
Ava: My mom was a cosmetologist teacher. [Growing up,] she would always do my nails, and my older sister Sydnie would always do my makeup. I always enjoyed it!

Which product in the collection is your most used?
Ava: The AFTERGLOW is my most used HYALINE product. It’s a stick highlighter. I love it because it’s smooth and when I put it on it doesn’t feel like I have lotion on my face. I love it! I use the “24 KARAT-AFTERGLOW” on regular days. When I want to spice it up a little, I use “PINKY PROMISE-AFTERGLOW.” I also can’t live without LIPGLOSS OR YOUR LOSS. It’s my clear lip gloss that lasts forever. Love it!

What’s next for the beauty brand?
Ava: My biggest goal is to have HYALINE products available in all big beauty stores, [like] Sephora and Ulta. [And] I definitely have exciting things in the works to bring [new] products to everyone. I’ve been working on another eye product. It will be coming out within the next couple of weeks!

Love finding new and exciting ways to switch up your look? Luckily, Loren Gray recently shared the best beauty advice she’s ever received!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Reportedly Filed a Trademark for “Sussex Royal”

Get ready for royal merch from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle! Well, sort of.

People reports that the couple has officially filed a trademark for Sussex Royal, The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. While the initial paperwork was completed in June 2019, the filing wasn’t published until last week, detailing what the trademark application could be used for. As noted by People, Meghan and Harry might use the trademark for a variety of items, including books and magazines, clothing, education, and “charitable fundraising.”

Back in June, Meghan and Harry also broke away from the joint charity that they shared with Prince William and Kate Middleton; the trademark application was reportedly filed one day after announcing the split from The Royal Foundation.

The following month, Meghan and Harry unveiled their new charity, Sussex Royal, which is incidentally the same name as their royal Instagram handle.

While it’s yet to be determined what exactly Meghan and Harry’s charity will focus on, the Duchess of Sussex has indicated that she’s passionate about “strong, community-based projects.” On Instagram, Meghan and Harry often highlight other charities and organizations that are focusing on changing the world for the better. Over the summer, the Duke and Duchess asked their followers to share some of their biggest inspirations, in order to give them a bigger platform. “We want to know who YOUR Force for Change is,” they wrote at the time. “Each month, we change the accounts we follow to highlight various causes, people or organizations doing amazing things for their communities and the world at large.”

Kylie Jenner Shows Off “Leopard French” Manicure

Kylie Jenner has been known to wow us occasionally (read: daily) with her impressive manicures. From Lip Kit-inspired nail art to chic winter-white talons, the reality star and makeup mogul always pays attention to the details. For her latest look, she’s opted for a fresh take on a traditional French manicure — one that lets her walk on the wild side.

On December 28, Kylie shared a ‘gram of her new nails, the base of which are painted a creamy peach hue. The tips, however, are comprised entirely of leopard print, filed to a perfectly sharp square. Kylie has officially dubbed the style “Leopard French,” complete with a wild cat emoji to match. In the next slide, Kylie showed off her nails in action with a video that captured the manicure’s flawless finish.

Kylie’s been known to change up her nails at a moment’s notice, and we’ve seen her rock a rainbow of shades over the past few months. Back in September, she tapped into her inner romantic with shiny peachy-pink nails complete with tiny rhinestones assembled into a heart shape, and let’s not forget her neon pink “French drip” mani that left us inspired all summer long.

We can always count on Kylie to give us a sneak peek at the next big trend for nails, and we wouldn’t be surprised if people start asking for a “Leopard French” the next time they hit the salon.

Child Prodigies Renee Mendonca & Rhea Mendonca Are Trailblazers In The Anti-Vaping Campaign Globally


We started WINGS OF HOPE at the age of 10. Death of our beloved Grandpa, who was our CONFIDANTE, FRIEND and ROLE MODEL due to Pulmonary Fibrosis crumbled our lives.

He was a chain smoker from the age of 14. From that day, we vowed to save young lives caught in trauma due to addictions. This is how WINGS OF HOPE was born.


Recently when we immigrated to the United States. We were spending sleepless nights, as we observed our underage peers vaping E-Cigarettes. When we conducted a survey, we were baffled to find that out of 3,000 students, 97% use flavoured E- Cigarettes, 90% vaped Juul, 85% of the ages of 12 – 17 year olds vape.

Our classrooms were transformed into VAPING DENS. My twin sister Renee Mendonca and I, Rhea Mendonca felt that we couldn’t remain silent anymore and watch the youth being robbed of their lives due to this evil addiction of Vaping E- Cigarettes. This inspired us to form the American Chapter of Wings of Hope.


The death of our 17 year Instagram friend due to VAPING left us devastated. So we took matters into our hands by putting pen to paper and started writing letters to President Donald Trump, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Governors of the 50 States in America demanding to ban E- Cigarettes in whole of USA.

We received letters of appreciation from Governors of the 50 States in America.

Due to the magnitude of our actions, we realised at the age of 16, it created a SNOWBALL EFFECT. New York was the First State to ban Flavoured E-Cigarettes, followed by 10 States in America.


We accidentally came across the advertisement by E-Cigarette Company, JUUL on Social Media “SAVE ROOM FOR TASTY TREATS AND REWARDS”.

We wrote a letter to E-Cigarette Company, JUUL, them expressing our disapproval how they were using social media to target underage teenagers where Middle and High School students live.

We also protested about the sweet dessert flavours they were using such as Gummy Bears, Cotton Candy, Creme, Mango to entice teenagers and hook them to Nicotine. It was a JESUS MOMENT for us.

We felt we were like MISSIONARIES sent to America to save lives of youth due to VAPING. E-Cigarette Company, JUUL withdrew all Social Media Marketing Campaigns and flavored pods targeted at youth. 


At the Dinner table, my mom would throw at us different Global issues and each of us had to give our opinion. This developed us into young leaders who were not afraid to voice our  opinion and to stand up for injustice in this world. 


Wings of Hope is a youth led organisation to help youth all over the world. Till date we have helped 1,50,000 youth from USA, UK, Nigeria, South  Africa, Kenya, Nicaragua, Haiti, Mexico, Columbia, Cuba, Congo, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Australia and India.

The vaping addicts can send us a SECRET LETTER about the trauma they are facing and ask for help on on our INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT @wings_ofhope and Email- wingsofhope555@gmail.com 


We share our wisdom on QUORA, MEDIUM and write on international teen magazines to caution the youth of dangers of VAPING.

We also utilized the use social media to spread awareness to the youth. We also made youtube videos urging President Donald Trump, E-Cigarette Companies to STOP E-  Cigarettes in whole of USA.




For our 17th birthday we traded our birthday presents to save the lives of the youth addicted to vaping by asking all our friends, relatives and well wishers to donate to our favorite charity ST JUDE HOSPITAL as our BIRTHDAY GIFT.

We felt truly blessed to celebrate our birthday – FOR A  WORTHY CAUSE BIGGER THAN OURSELVES. We raised $1,50,000 dollars.


At the beginning of every school year my mom would handover us an EMPTY BUCKET.

My mom said, “Everyday I want you to fill this bucket with a minimum of 10 GOOD DEEDS”

At the end of the day, she would ask us what good deeds we have done towards our peers, teachers, blue-collared staff, strangers and animals. This ritual imbibed in us a practice of being an angel in our community. Doing good came naturally to us.

How do u celebrate THANKSGIVING?

We had a special RITUAL at THANKSGIVING. At the begnining of the year, each of us had a GRATITUDE JAR with our name on it.

Every morning we had to write a minimum of 10 things we are grateful for and drop it in the Gratitude Jar before rushing off to school.

At Thanksgiving we would empty our jar and read aloud what each one is grateful for.

It was a competition. My mom was the judge for the event. The person with most items in the GRATITUDE JAR won a PRIZE.


From the age of 3 at bedtime, my mom she would always share with us life lessons and stories of great women and men like Mother Theresa, Bill Gates, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela.

We grew up believing we were sent to this world with a MISSION TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD. This is our favourite NIGHT RITUAL TILL DATE. We look forward to this time together. It is a time of bonding, sharing and celebrating the good in this world. 


We feel honored and happy to receive the AWARD. We do not do it for the recognition, but do it to save the lives of youth caught in the web of vaping. Our hearts break into a million pieces every time we read that a youth has died due to vaping.


Rhea Mendonca and Renee Mendonca, 17 year old twins are social entrepreneurs, activists, humanitarians, composer and singer of songs.

They are currently  Seniors at Susan E Wagner high school. They are Co- Founders of Wings of Hope, a Global Not For Profit Organisation, Co-Founder and President of Model UN Club in their School.

4 Hints About The Future of ‘Descendants’

Could a “Descendants 4 be in the works? Never say never!

Disney Channel has yet to comment on the future of the fan-favorite franchise, and unlike past installments, the third (and seemingly final) flick didn’t end with the reassuring “You didn’t think this was the end of the story, did you?” line. However, the cast isn’t necessarily ruling anything out.

Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, and Mitchell Hope have all hinted that there might be more to the story…

1. Dove said that that while she can’t confirm anything for sure, a D4 isn’t entirely out of the question. “I do think there is a world where that happens…I don’t love the idea of doing it without Cameron [Boyce, who tragically passed away in July]. I don’t know what the plot would be and I don’t know what it would look like…But I also love the franchise and I love [director] Kenny [Ortega], and I love Disney and I love that cast. I loved that time in my life.”

2. She also hinted that there may or may not be a spin-off on the horizon! “I think it would be smart to do maybe a spin-off with maybe the younger characters…Disney has been very specific about saying that this world doesn’t really ever end, it goes on forever and the possibilities are endless…Also, I may or may not have heard something about something that I might be doing involving the franchise. I would never say that it’s over, but I also would never confirm anything at this time. I would be open to doing more.”

3. Sofia was vague in an interview, but left fans with hope that they might see more of Evie in the future. “The Descendants franchise changed all of our lives. I don’t think any of us can imagine it without Cameron…Who knows what the future holds.”

4. Mitchell expressed his love for Ben and explained that there’s always a chance that the story could continue. “It’s a great franchise, and it was a lot of fun to be a part of. There’s a few things that…There’s always a chance on the horizon. I’d be excited to do it…At this point, I haven’t heard anything but I love playing Ben. He’s just such a pure, benevolent character and it always make me feel nice, kind of changes of my behavior…When you play a character, you kind of subconsciously start adopting a few of those traits, so it was always really nice playing Ben.

Dove shared the emotional goodbye that the cast had with the set! Here’s exactly what happened.

Stationery Haul!! Exam Time Stationery Essentials!!!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to this blog where we are gonna discuss the stationery essentials for exam and exam time studies. Now, exams are not the most liked and that is why I have a cool hack for you: Use colourful and cute(interesting) stationery to have some determination while studying.

It feels good when you study while surrounded with such beautiful stationery.

So let us begin! And I’ll be giving the product links[if possible] at the end, to all the items mentioned.


I have many pens, and they are definitely worth the purpose.

Talking about the colourful pens, by Artline, they have fabric pointed nib. These pens are not only colourful from outside but their ink is also colourful. And they satisfy the sole purpose of notes making. Well, I believe that colour coordinated notes are the best to read and understand and hence these pens are very very helpful! These pens come in a pack of 10 and each pens costs just 10 bucks and I think that’s super affordable price!

When it comes to exams, we all search for good pens which work smoothly. Therefore I found these Pilot V7 Pens which have liquid ink cartridge system and these literally glide on the paper. They are super smooth and the design is also very sleek. Well the feature are definitely worth the price, which is 60 rupees!!!


It has been so long since I have purchased pencils from local stores and I literally forgot that we do get loose pencils, yes the Indian market does sell loose pencils. So I bought 2 pencils each from the brands Natraj and DOMS. And the DOMS pencils are what I wanted to talk about, the design is soo unique and beautiful, it has got shiny stars and a matte black body. It’s really beautiful and also purposeful! I must say , you guys have to give this one a try.

But we cannot be satisfied by spending so less on pencils, so I went for eco-friendly pencils[lid pencil] or lid pencil which is soo sleek and beautiful in design. It cost me 30 rupees and was actually super unique design. It does not look like a pencil. Also, I must tell you guys that when you buy the lid for these lid pencils, go for a bit good quality ones from trusted brands like Camlin or Stadler, etc…


Moving on, when we come to highlighters, which help a lot while skimming or reading, I have two options for you guys, the normal highlighters and the gel highlighters.

Well both are by trusted brands: Luxor[Normal ones] and Faber Castell[Gel Highlighters] and I don’t think I need to tell anything about these products, everyone has got their own way and own hacks of using the highlighters.


This item is amazing, it is a flexible ruler and the concept is amazing. This one is by the brand Maped and I have used this for a very long time now. It has compensated on all the rulers I have broken in my heavy bag! And I just don’t have words for it, it’s a fabulous product!

Writing Pad

The thing that happens with me is that I always forget to carry my writing pad for my first exam, because I never get ready properly maybe! Anyway I found this clear pad which comes in many colours and as per my knowledge, many Indian schools and colleges demand for such clear exam pads to ensure that you don’t cheat in the exam. So here’s a perfect one for you!

Memo Pads

I know this doesn’t count for exams but it does for exam preparations, I think there’s always a need to plan what your schedule and your studies. And I can talk about planning endlessly! Here’s a review for these memo pads on my blog:

And that was it, I hope you liked this stationery haul of exam stationery essentials!

Thank you so much for reading. Written By: Siddesh

“You” Season 2: My Educated Prediction & Thoughts

I was so excited when I first seen the new “you” season 2 trailer. Now I just have to watch it. I know I’m a little behind but I’ll get there.

Quick Season one recap

I was so excited when I heard there would be a new you season 2 release date. Everyone was raving about how good this show was “you” so I decided to give it a shot. Let’s just say I finished the show in the next 3 days. 

Honestly this show had me on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next because it’s the type of show where we know something before the other character does and were yelling at the tv NOOOO don’t go in there. 

The end of season one with a complete plot twist I didn’t expect him to kill her like that  mean it was his love. He had everything going for him everything he wanted but Bam everything started to unwind all because of her psycho best friend.

 It’s kinda crazy because he killed two people in the process and managed to play it cool and look her in the eye which was wild. 

What I think will happen in “you” season 2

Honestly I don’t know what to expect for  “you” season 2 because there are so many things that could happen. 

He should have just gotten her the old fashion way fair and square but here where smh. I’m happy he didn’t because know we get a season.

“You” season 2 cast

Joe is returning which I am stoked about but they’re a few new faces which would give the show a new mix and feel which will make it exciting to see how Joe reacts around new people. I’m wonder will his past come back to haunt him with his new crew. 

What I think will happen in “you” season 2

Honestly I’ll miss Guinevere she was pretty cute. To be honest I take that back I honestly don’t she is dead. Neither is her best friend Peach.  

I have a feeling Joe will build a relationship with Love Quinn and everything will go smoothly until she ask about Guinevere he friend that he doesn’t know that they know each other. 

Maybe she read her book, something along those lines. I also think that Peaches will somehow blackmail Joe into admitting he tried to kill her and Guinevere. I also feel that Joe somehow face off with a few different other characters who know about his dark past.

Will  “you” season 2 be better than the first?

In my opinion that’s a tough question to ask myself because I have to understand that “you” season 2 has a different plot than the first. 

The main purpose of season two is to continue the story of what Joe has done in the past. So in all honesty I feel like season 2 could be better because it could be the end of Joe as we know it.

“You” Star Victoria Pedretti on Love Quinn’s Season 2 Twist Ending

Warning: Major spoilers ahead for season 2 of You.

In Netflix’s psychological romance thriller You, Victoria Pedretti plays Love Quinn, a young woman in Los Angeles still grieving the death of her husband when she meets murderous boyfriend Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley), who is now going by the name Will Bettelheim. But Victoria first auditioned for a very different You character: Season 1’s Guinevere Beck (played by Elizabeth Lail).

Beck and Love are a world apart, but it’s difficult not to compare them, since Joe spends basically the entire second season doing just that. “I think Beck carried a lot of insecurities that made her very easily manipulated,” Victoria tells Teen Vogue. “Love is written as a character who is not easily moved, and [who is] very strong in her beliefs. So, there’s a lot of contrast right there. It wasn’t going to be the same season. It wasn’t going to be the same thing because this person that he’s fixated on is very, very different.”

If you haven’t read Caroline Kepnes’s original books, you’d be forgiven for thinking season 2 was going to go down just like season 1. A pretty, vulnerable love interest. A carefully plotted meet-cute. A honeymoon phase, a realization of bad behavior, and a violent end. Season 2 does cover those plot points — but it twists them into something new, something more complicated.

At the center of that twist is Victoria’s Love, so it’s not such a bad thing that she didn’t end up with the role of Beck. Plus, 24-year-old Victoria got to play another dynamic character for her debut professional acting role: Nell Crane in the hit horror anthology, The Haunting of Hill House, a part she won just a few months after graduating from the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama in 2017. When she spoke to Teen Vogue about You season 2, she was already filming the second installment, The Haunting of Bly Manor, which will air later in 2020.

In comparison to the Haunting series, You’s brand of terror is subtler. Often, You’s best trick is letting viewers lapse into comfortable acceptance of Joe Goldberg’s frequent internal monologues. We see the world how Joe does, and he typically fails to see women as actual people, instead preferring to see them as broken, or traumatized, or in need of saving and monitoring and stalking and kidnapping and—yeah, doesn’t seem so romantic anymore, does it?
