Kylie Jenner Ppersonal life, style, and about

her father
How does she get her lips so big you may ask?
Well based on social media sites they believe
that she has gotten plastic surgery not only
on her lips but throughout her body also. Kylie
Jenner is the biggest idol for many inspired
makeup artists in this century, however there
are some precaution they may want to take
before actually doing the whole Kylie Jenner
look. This particular Jenner is one that stands
out to my generation along with her sister
Kendall Jenner. Kylie Jenner however is more
involved with in fashion, makeup, clamor,
clothes, and many more specific characteristics
that make up her story.

Many girls that I have met that are fascinated

by the makeup industry simply do their makeup because that is what they enjoy and have a
passion for. There are many video tutorials
regarding Kylie Jenners style and I find it help
full if you are trying to get inspired by her.
Many women in todays society get influenced
by what men mainly say and believe the norm
should be for us.

Women in my perspective have a limit regardless of what they can do, use, and say. Media
like I stated before plays a huge role in the
mind of the women, women get in this motion
of being competitors and pleasing the male.
When in reality women should to things for
themselves and not care
about the man regardless of sex or any norms
placed on them.

Brands such as NARS along with other drug

store cosmetics does the job
for many girls that are trying to get the look
just like Kylie Jenner.

Kyle Jenner is a style icon. Her wardrobe can

be chic and stylist while still being effortless.
Nevertheless Kylie is rocking a simple black
dress with arm candy along with many more
accessories that make her whole outfit pop.
Basically what Kylie is now with holding is the
style just like her older sister Kim Kardashian.
On the image above we can see that NYX,
Sephora, and MAC lip linear along with lip
sticks in which all are about nude and light
colors are some of many Kylies favorites. MAC
has been the top makeup company since it was
established in Toronto when makeup artist
and photographer, Frank Toskan and beauty
salon owner. Frank Angelo brainstormed a
makeup line. Frustrated because of the lack
of colors that would shoot well with photography; their aim was to develop a studio line
makeup line that would fulfill their professional needs. Alongside with the NYX and Sephora makeup all their purpose is for the same

Kylie is following in her footsteps in order to

achieve greatness within her look as a teen.
My vision of her actions are to just get into the
fashion side for herself and what better way
to do that then following in her older sisters
steps. Kylie was snapped at the airport Sunday
wearing an allover black outfit, a style Kim
usually favors while traveling.

Bruce Jenners 20/20 interview inspired millions of people to be courageous! And thanks
to him, Kylie found her strength and stood
up to Tyga, questioning him about his alleged
romantic texts with his ex, Blac Chyna.
Kylie Jenner went ham on Tyga, her boyfriend,
HollywoodLife.com Exclusively learned that
the 17 year old finally had the guts to put Tyga
in the hot seat over his alleged securing with
his ex, Blac Chyna. Due to her fathers courage
was that, that convinced her to stand up to

L.A. night life


Hollywood is a district in the central region of

Los Angeles, California, in the United States.
It is notable for its place as the home of the
entertainment industry, including several of its
historic studios.

LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States. It attracts nearly a million
visitors annually. It holds more than 120,000
works spanning the history of art from ancient times to the present. In addition to art
exhibits, the museum features film and concert
Project LA
Project LA: Is the central place to go if you are
trying to enjoy yourself. Exclusive, guest-listonly nightclub offers drinks, dancing and a
neon-hued color scheme. One of Londons
most exclusive nightlife venues, Project London, in conjunction with LA based Boulevard
Nightlife Group, is a venue with an emphasis
on friendly, all inclusive fun, and wild.

Surrounded the BCAM building and LACMAs

courtyard is a 100 palm tree garden, designed
by the Robert Irwin and landscape architect
Paul Comstock. Some of the 30 varieties of
palms are in the ground, but most are in large
wooden boxes above ground.
The street lights are functional, turn on in the
evening, and are powered by solar panels on
the roof of the BP Grand Entrance.
Originally the sculpture was inside the Grand
Entrance building and was outside in the
courtyard, both lent by the Broad Art Foundation. However both sculptures were removed
after being on display for 3 moths due to unexpected damage.
LACMA is a memorable space of art for which
I can speak on a level because it signifies the
difference which the space of Los Angeles can
be used to imply transformation with in the
culture that the towers are surrounded by. Copious amounts of people have been here, you
name it they have been here. The importance
of this suggests that LACMA is known by a
diverse community and that many people can
also identify with the space around them.

We want to immerse our guests in that kind

of fun you have when you have no cares in the
world, we want our guests to completely forger
all their cares and worries, their past and
future, and for the time they are with us, just
exixt in the NOW, in the present, says Freddy Braidi, Managing Partner for Boulevard

Project London chime in, We believe in providing prompt and exceptional service for our
guests, we want to fully anticipate their needs
and wants before they do, and welcome them

Its not going to be all fun and games at Project. In an industry first, Project Los Angeles
will donate 2% of each bill to a charity. Project
LA plans on donating to 12 pre-selected charities of charitable organizations each year (one
per month).

Hollywood was originally a small independent

agricultural community. It merged with Los
Angeles in 1910 in order to obtain an adequate
water supply. At approximately the same time,
the film industry began to locate in the region,
seeking to take advantage of natural sunlight
that allowed year-round filming and a diverse
southern California landscape that provided
cheap scenery. In 1914, the director Cecil B.
DeMille decided to locate his studio in Hollywood permanently, and other companies
followed. By the 1920s, Hollywood had beaten
out rivals such as Culver City and Burbank as
the place most associated with the film industry, although in fact movie lots were scattered
throughout the Los Angeles area.
The growing power and romance of film made
Hollywood a cultural icon and a major tourist
attraction. In the 1950s and 1960s, Hollywood
also began to attract television studios and
record companies. While still home to many
entertainment-related companies and remaining a popular destination for starstruck visitors, the areas actual role in film production
began to lag in the 1970s. Soaring production
and living costs in Los Angeles led many
companies to seek opportunities elsewhere,
and Hollywood itself struggled with problems
associated with urban affliction. However
Hollywood serves as one of the most known
tourists places to visit till this day and I believe
it will never stop.

It the architecture has more weird looking?

When we think abut many of the more modern architectures, we can soon recognize some
of most interesting stuff which we might have
seen somewhere. And the reason that they are
so recognizable is that their shapes are not as
ordinary as think a building should be. There
are many this kind building around the world.
And in Los Anglos, in my opinion, the most
iconic of them is the Wait Disney Concert
Hall. Designed by Frank Gehry, Wait Disney Concert Hall is the fourth hall of the Los
Angeles Music Center designs Wait Disney
Concert Hall. As an architecture landmark,
this building is also attracting many people by
its unique feature. Some might think that will
there be more of this kind of building coming
up? In my opinion it could very well happen
if they meet these requirements, which are
wasting little to no space, no side effect, and
reasonable cost.

The space using is a very important aspect in

architecture design, especially when we are
talking about the design that can be done by
modern technology. In the modern architecture design, there are many mistakes. One
of them is designers are more focus on how
their designs look not how good the spaces
their create can be used. Therefore, if you look
inside some building, which might looks very
interesting, you can find many unusable spaces. Those spaces are course by the shape of the
building. When we talking about side effect,
we are talking about the problem the building
bored that was not consider in the original
design. Let talk about Wait Disney Concert
Hall again. These iconic building is well know
for people around the world, especially if you
study architecture.

When we talking about side effect, we are talking

about the problem the building bored that was
not consider in the original design. Let talk
about Wait Disney Concert Hall again. These
iconic building is well know for people around
the world, especially if you study architecture.
However, after it was build, the building did
case many problems. Because the building was
too shiny, which cause by the materials it used,
it reflects some concentrated light to the surrounding area. If it were built on places with low
sunshine, it would be ok. However, it was build
in California with its famous sunshine thought
out the year. This caused rising temperature to
nearby buildings and sometimes blinds drivers
from looking the traffic lights, until they sandblasted the some area of the building to fix the

The other most important aspect, may be the

most important of all, is the cost of the building. The financial gaps is one reason, which
makes many design stay on the paper, despite
how great they might look. When we think
about build a new building, most people are
more focus on how good they are or they look.
However, for those who pay the money to
build those building there are more than the
look of building they need to think about. And
most important of all for them is money. Great
architecture costs great amount of money.
The Walt Disney Concert Hall itself cost 130
million dollars, and if you count the parking
garage, which build for it, there will be much
more cost on that. Although it is not a very big
building, it did cost by its design. If you compare to the Empire State building which would
cost 635 million dollars if it were building in
2015. And that is more than 6 times bigger
than the Concert Hall. The modern design and
new materials it required will make cost even
higher if designer want the building looks
more fantasy to meet their dream. Therefore,
if one can put a weird design into a real building, he or she must find balance between great
feature and cost.

Many people believe that more these kind of

building could benefit where they build. If
you only count in term of tourism, the answer might be yes in some aspect. However,
without a careful analysis those building do
not give people much beside the functions of
buildings. For example, in China, there are
many new building with very unique features
were built in the last few years. Many of them
do not bring much benefit, and some of them
you might not even hear anything out of them
until you read criticism on some website.
Over all, it is reason that we all want to have
more weird looking building to make our
city more beautiful. However, only by meeting those requirement above can those design
become reality.

Choosing where to live is always one important aspect that people think about in their
lives, especially in the economic state these
days, people keep move from one places to
another to find a better job. For most of the
people, to live as closer as possible to the work
place is important. The reason mainly is to
cut out more time between home and work
place. To these people working in Los Angels
(LA), be able to get a home inside LA will be
vey good. However, is LA a good place to get a
home? From what I have read, I do not think
the answer will be yes.

Frist of all, rents in LA are high and have risen

quite a bit. As the more reasonable choice for
most of the people, rent a home is much better
than buy one. Because people are more likely
to change their job after few years, and the
economy is not very good in recent years. To
find another job in the same area is not very
likely to happen to most of people. However,
according to an article LA Storeys; Housing
In Los Angeles, the percentage of income people used to pay rent is higher than any other
city. One of the reasons is that the rents in LA
have risen more than 25% since 2000. 25%
increase is a very big gap for many people who
are not very rich; especially in the same time
most of peoples income are decreasing. To
be able to pay this amount of rent very makes
many families facing financial difficulties.
Therefore, the expensive rent make LA a bad
place to make home.

The other reason that makes LA not a good

place for housing is that LA is facing a good
shortage of affordable housing. A recent report
from the California Housing Partnership Corp
states that LA needs nearly another a million
homes with below-market rents. There are
many reasons may have caused this problem.
Some of the plans were cancel or cut back
because of neighbors protest. Of course, these
people have their right to do so. However, it
did make new house less than the city requires.
There is another reason is, according to article
LA Storeys; Housing In Los Angeles that
LA restrictive zoning laws make developers
very difficult to build high-rise or high density housing. This might result from the local
culture of LA about their neighborhoods. This
shortage of house clearly not only increased
the rent in LA, but also gives new comers very
limit choice to make where they should live.
Many people have to live much far way than
they should in order to get a reasonable house.
If LA cannot find a solution to fix this problem, which is unlikely happen very soon, this
city is not very good for people looking for
new place to live.

There are some other opinions on this matter. One

of them is that some people say that there are many
other cities have higher average rent than LA. If
we just look at the rent itself, then there are some
cities have higher rent. For example, New York is
one of the cities that its average rent is higher than
LA. Or San Francisco, which is more close to LA,
is also higher than LA in term of rent. The problem
is these people are tunnel vision on rent itself, and
there are other aspect that decide wither the rent
is expensive. High rent is not always means rent is
expensive. In those places, which have higher rent
than LA, people also normally have much higher
income than LA. Therefore, the rent does not take
very high percent of peoples income, and people
have more choice to pick what house I like or where
they live.
As one of the biggest in America, LA has many
good aspects to make people to live there. However,
use those to encourage people to live in LA is not
longer effective. If the problem of expensive rent
and shortage of new house continue, LA cannot become a good place for people to make their home.

Los Angeles Clippers vs San Antonio Spurs

Most American people have been busy watching the playoffs games between two of the
most famous basketball teams in U.S the LA
Clippers and San Antonio Spurs. Basically
the way they play their playoffs in Basketball
tournaments is unique, the rule says they play
7 games in 2 weeks and the team who qualify
must win 4 games out of the 7 games. Until
this moment both teams played 5 games. The
first game was on April 19 at San Antonio
Spurs home, LA Clippers played a really good
game and they deserved to win the first game,
the score was 92 for the Spurs and 107 for the

The second game was after 3 days from the first

one on April 22, it was also at Spurs home and
they played a wonderful game and great performance from players, the score was so close
between the two teams it was 111 for the Spurs
and 107 for the clippers. After those two games
the supporters for both teams were satisfied
about the results and excited about the upcoming

The third game on April 24 was at Clippers

home and the Spurs players were feeling more
enthusiasm than the clippers players because
of the win in the second game and they want
to take the lead, the game was a little bit easy
for the Spurs players because they won with a
huge deference in the score, the score was 10073 for the Spurs.

After the defeat in the third game the Clippers

players were training hard to get back, and their
hard work and efforts were not in vain they made
a great victory in the fourth game on April 26
which it was in their home between their fans,
they won by 114-105 for them.

On April 28 the fifth game was at Spurs home,

at the beginning of this game there were a lot
of stress between the players, each player was
trying to his best to help his team to win this
game, finally the Spurs players experience
made a difference in the game and they defeat the clippers by 111-107, the score was too
close it was just 4 points in the last seconds.
Overall LA Clippers won 2 games and San
Antonio Spurs won 3 games which make them
take the lead and there are just two games left.

The sixth game will be on Thursday April 30 at

the Clippers home, this game will be like a final
game for the Clippers players because if they lost
that game they will get kicked out of the tournament. Definitely the Clippers will play with
different tactics and more passion because they
want to win the game so both teams will have
the same number of winning games which is 3
games for both and the seventh game will decide
who qualify. On the other hand the Spurs players
will play without feeling stressful but at the same
time they will enter this game with just one goal
which is to win.

In addition, the Spurs players will have the

courage this game because if they win they will
qualify to the next round. Most people expecting that the Spurs will win the sixth game and
they will qualify to the next round, the reason
that they say that is because of the historical
statistics about the games played between the
Spurs and the Clippers with their all-time
head-to-head records against each other which
is 165 games in the NBA seasons and playoffs.

In the NBA regular season games they played a

total of 156 games, the San Antonio Spurs had
the victory in 121 games while the Los Angeles Clippers won 35 games. For the playoff
all-time record they played a total of 9 games,
the San Antonio Spurs won 7 games and The
Los Angeles Clippers won just 2 games. While
there are some few people who says that the
game will depend on players performance and
how they play, but the historical statistics will
not affect anything because it is just numbers
about what happened in the past, as one of the
famous quotes says yesterday is a history and
tomorrow is a mystery, so who knows what
will happen in the next game!
