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!”

Recipes

Claire’s Favorite Cocktail From TAO Los Angeles!

This month, we’re going to tell you how to recreate Claire Cali’s favorite cocktail from LA hotspot TAO, the Mango Chili Martini! Almost as spicy and sweet as Claire herself.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup mango puree
  • 4 oz your choice of tequila (TAO uses Herradura Blanco Tequila)
  • 4 oz pineapple juice
  • 2 oz lime juice
  • Lime wedges
  • Chili powder

1. Place chili powder on a plate. Run a lime wedge around the rim of 2 chilled martini glasses. Set aside.

2. Combine fresh mango puree with tequila, pineapple juice, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker with ice.

3. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds.

4. Carefully strain into 2 glasses and serve!

Our Favorites

Music: This month we’ve curated a playlist filled with our team’s favorite songs for the summer! We’ve been blasting this at pre-games, while driving with the windows down, and at the office. You can find it here on our Spotify!

Film: Fire Island – This new film is a must watch for summer movie nights and will have you celebrating Pride Month all summer long! You can find it on Hulu.

Television: Heartstopper – This show is the perfect comfort watch! You literally won’t be able to get through 5 minutes of it without smiling. Find it on Netflix!

Book: You are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero – This is not your boring run of the mill income book. Jen Sincero’s hilarious writing makes it such a fun and informative read!
