    Tashie’s Tips For Flirting on Dating Apps

    Feeling burnt out from the constant messaging on dating apps? Tash is here to help with her advice on how to make your dating app conversations unique and flirty!

    Don’t just ask typical getting to know you questions. People have answered these questions over and over again on dating apps… it gets boring after a while.

    Set yourself apart by starting out with banter. It shows that you will be fun to hang out with!

    The sooner you start flirting, the more they’ll want to actually meet you. You’re wasting no time at creating attraction 😉

    Save the getting to know you questions for the actual date. Just focus on having fun with them in the messages and getting a feel for their personality and vibe.

    If you need an example of flirty messaging, watch this video where Tash goes over one conversation with a guy who she gave her number to on a dating app!

    Check out Tash’s dating advice here.

    Our Favorites

    Music: Confidence Boost – Tash’s vibey playlist will leave you feeling fiery.

    Film: Loving Adults – Based on a Danish novel, this crime drama thriller currently streaming on Netflix will have you gasping at every twist and turn.

    Television: House of the Dragon – Whether you binged all of Game of Thrones or never got into it, everyone can start fresh with this prequel!

    Book: I’m Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy – This Nickelodeon child star’s memoir tells us the dark side of what it was like to grow up in the public eye while privately dealing with an abusive mother, anxiety, and addiction. I’m sure we’ve all smiled and laughed at iCarly while never thinking that Jennette, who played Cat, was going through so much at such a young age.

    Local LA eats: Meteora – This new (and extremely Instagram worthy) restaurant on Melrose Ave features a unique menu and even more unique design.

    Happy Birthday Ashley Kolfage and Kayla Simmons!

    Social Media Update of the Month

    Instagram is now allowing certain users to earn money based on the amount of views their Reels get.

    Last month we talked about the new features that Instagram added for Reels to promote filming and editing within the app as opposed to importing content from other apps, and now they’re taking Reels a step further with their new program, Reels Play Bonuses. With Reels Play Bonuses, Instagram will now be directly paying creators based on the amount of views their Reels get.

    What we think: Although this program is currently only available for eligible creators in the US, if the program goes well we’d expect to see it implemented on a more global scale. This initiative also indicates that the platform wants to encourage popular creators making Reels in the same way that YouTube and TikTok have content creators that solely post on the one platform.

    Social Media Update of the Month

    Instagram has now added Reels templates for easier content creation within the app

    Instagram continues its transition into becoming a leading video sharing platform by adding templates for their Reels. These templates make it easier to film and edit videos on the Instagram app, rather than filming and importing content from other platforms.

    • Dual allows you to show both your front and back camera views in a single video: It seems that BeReal is the latest app Instagram is taking inspiration from for this new feature that captures both sides of the camera.
    • Remixes are Instagram’s way of adding duets on their Reels: You can now add your own opinion to your favorite (or least favorite) Instagram Reels by filming your reaction to the content and inserting it in the video, which will then be posted to your account. Your remix can either play side-by-side with the original video or sequentially after the original video ends.

    What we think: These updates all seem to be Instagram’s way of getting users to create fresh and exciting content solely for Reels, since it looks like the current most popular Reels are reposted TikTok videos. We can’t wait to see what new features they add next!

    Tips & Tricks

    Here’s what Ashley Kolfage had to say when we asked for her secrets to her insane selfies: “I’m sure you’re always asking yourself, ‘How can I change up my selfie game?!’ I wanna give you a few tips and tricks that help make my selfies not boring.”

    • Never use the same angle and stop posing in front of the same mirror: “Switch it up. People get bored with the same ‘up high’ angled selfie everyday. Change your angles and locations!”
    • Point that toe out and those hips back: “This pose makes you look leaner and taller! I’m only 5’3 (on a good day) but this go-to pose makes me appear 5’8.”
    • Lighting! It’s all about lighting! “Even that ‘just woke up/no makeup’ pic is all about the good lighting! I avoid fluorescent lights, they just aren’t flattering.”
    • Make those boobs look bigger without actually “making them bigger”: “I like to shoot right below my boob and up to make them look huge ?”
    • When you wanna change it up: “Take a pic with your animals! Everyone loves a good puppy selfie! Bonus tip: try a hat! It changes the way you look and the vibe of the selfie!”
    • Find your filter: “When in doubt I always swipe ? for the Paris filter on Instagram! It just adds that extra smoothness!”
    • Always have fun with it: “If you aren’t feeling the selfie, it’s going to show. Crack a smile or maybe turn some music on and dance for a selfie video!”

    3. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds.

    4. Carefully strain into 2 glasses and serve!

    Tips & Tricks

    Alissa’s Beauty Tip

    Alissa uses ice on her face to reduce puffiness. Ice cubes or ice packs used on the face help to dilate the underlying blood vessels in the skin. It works almost instantaneously de-puffing affected areas. It is also beneficial to massage in a circular motion to gently distribute the lymphatic build-up which in turn also helps to decrease any puffiness.

    Recipes

    Sidney’s Iced Latte Magic

    Ingredients:

    • Espresso
    • Caramel Almond Milk Creamer
    • Your Favorite Protein Powder (⅓ scoop)
    • Coconut Sugar

    “My new fave at-home coffee is also healthier! One cup of hot coffee with caramel almond milk creamer, 1/3 scoop protein, and coconut sugar! I like to always use coconut sugar in place of white sugar.” – Sidney

    Alissa’s Favorite Summertime Drink

    Ingredients:

    • 2 ounces vodka
    • 1/2 ounce triple sec
    • 1 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed
    • 1 ounce simple syrup
    • Garnish: sugar rim

    “This is my favorite drink! For this recipe, I just go by the book!” – Alissa

    Our Favorites

    Film: Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness – we are big fans of the Multiverse here at Behave and while the film was a big blockbuster, it certainly left us with quite a few more questions than answers. No spoiler alerts here!
