Teenage dreams were coming true last night at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, when One Direction won 8 out of 10 nominations at the Teen Choice Awards.

Competition was high and the dresses were short. Let's see which celebrities impressed and which depressed with their outfit decisions.

10 In-Flight Beauty Essentials

Travelling around the world sounds like a lot of fun, but spending all day on a plane? Not so much. I still remember my longest, 9-hour flight to the USA.. I could barely move on my small seat, my hair got all messed up from trying to find a good position to fall asleep, my skin dehydrated from dry air and my feet got swollen so badly that almost didn't fit my shoes anymore. If you ask me, spending 5+ hours on a plane is the worst nightmare for your body! Luckily, with these beauty essentials at hand, you can make your in-flight experience much more pleasant.

Summer Trend: Palm Leaf Swimwear


Palm leaf trend has been around for a while now but never in such a major way as it's this season. From shorts and playsuits to dresses and skirts - it appears everywhere and makes every outfit look uber chic. Well, since we're in the middle of summer, let's concentrate on swimwear only. We all know that choosing the right model can be very hard, but with a large selection of different silhouettes, I'm sure you can find THE perfect swimsuit for yourself! When buying one, I suggest you don't blindly follow the trends, because no trend will look good on you if it doesn't fit you. Instead try as many different styles as it gets and choose the one that reflects your personality the most, makes you feel confident and highlights parts of the body you're most proud of.

ONE-PIECE SWIMSUIT
When it comes to swimwear, saying less is more isn't the case anymore. Even though that one-piece covers a lot of your body, it can look just as sexy as a teeny-weeny bikini. One-piece swimsuit is perfect for women with athletic bodies and the ones that want to hide a little extra pounds on their abdominal area. It can also be a good choice for women with slim legs and big chest (but in this case, choose a swimsuit with higher neckline). Besides, you can also pair it with some denim short and wear it as a body for a stroll in the city.

Reasons to Start Using Snapchat ASAP


It first started up as a sexting app and then became one of the most popular and entertaining apps that offer the most personal and direct messaging. For all those that still aren't familiar with Snapchat, I'm giving you a quick user guide.

What is it? 
If you ask me: the best app ever invented. It's a social tool that lets you share photos and videos a.k.a. snaps with the bonus of adding drawings and captions. It's an app that creates a space to be funny and honest and doesn't conform to unrealistic notions of beauty & perfection like other social media.

So what makes it different from any other social media? 
The catch is that snaps dissapear after a few seconds, the amount of which decides the sender. Messages erase themselves after they're viewed (unless someone does a screenshot) and have to be taken live. Unlike other social media, where image is everything, here isn't about posting polished and photoshopped images but just about having fun and be spontanous and 'real' - to let loose and have fun without concequences.

10 Beauty Uses of Coconut Oil


Everyone's been talking about the magical coconut oil and its many benefits in the cooking department, but did you know that it can also be used as a beauty product? Oh yes, it has many benefits that have soothing effect for your body.

So, what's so special about it? First of all - it's all natural, which means it doesn't contain any perservatives. It consists of saturated fats, fatty acids, vitamin-E and proteins, which are all very benefitial for your skin (you can read more about the composition here). Another good thing about it is that it doesn't become rancid, which means it can work for a longer time, unlike many other oils. It's also naturally antibacterial & antifungal and excellent moisturizer. 

When you see in how many ways it can be used, you'll realize that you can throw away half of your beauty products and use only coconut oil instead. This way you'll have more space on your vanity and also save money. Here are 10 ways to use raw coconut oil as a beauty product. Try them and you'll see that it really does magic!
