welcomes better hair. Winter is a season for prevention. Prevention against
colds and what people state is blues. Well there are certainly blues for the
hair as well. Yes, folks todays agenda is the hair care during winters. The
bathing routine in winters requires the consumption of hot water. This hot

moisture out of the hair, leaving them dry and extremely zzy.

KYLIE JENNER'S
STYLE HACKS
TO
REFRESH YOUR

65

WARDROBE
There is no doubt that Kylie Jenner may be one of the most fashionable teenagers out there. She may be the youngest of the Kardashian family, but her wardrobe is more enviable than all of her
older sisters! If you are religiously scroll through her Instagram and
keep up with her Snapchat stories, there is no doubt that you would
want to copy her style. Or if you just want to infuse a little Kylie with
your otherwise bland closet, try these hacks ensuring you will dress
to impress, as well as mirror Jenner's fashionable outts. You don't
even need to be a Kardashian to dress similarly, as the younger
sister of gorgeous and successful model Kendall Jenner mixes edgy
street style with chic elements in a way that feels totally accessible and aordable - to us normal citizens.

Wear Black. Yes, it sounds


too simple. But it does work.
Kylie is often seen wearing
black, whether it is a casual
LA sighting, or a more glamorous gown for an awards
show, do not underestimate
the power of this seemingly
simple colour. It's attering,
slimming, looks good with
everything,

and

incredibly

versatile. No wonder not only


Kylie, but her stylish older
sisters are frequently seen in
this hue too. Black outts
work day and night, whatever
the occasion, so be sure to
collect timeless black pieces.
Ideas to start you o could
be a tailored blazer, a peacoat, a dress, jeans and even
a stylish blouse.

When choosing a floral sarong


or dress covered with flowers,
that pattern is the focal point of
the outfit. It can easily stand
alone. Therefore, don't try to
compete with it or overwhelm it
with other busy prints. Instead,
choose complementary accessories that enhance it.

Lace-up Boots. Want to


update your tame black or
suede ankle boots? Follow
Kylie and try thigh-high lace
up boots. They may scare
you as they seem like a bit
too much, but they can
easily dress up a little black
dress or a crop top and
shorts combo. Be prepared
to be the centre of attention, as these boots are
attractive. Try wearing these
with a gown with a thighhigh split to infuse Hollywood glamour with grunge.
Or opt for ankle-length lace
up boots with ripped skinnies and a white shirt. But if
they are good for Kylie
Jenner, then they are denitely good for you too!

Statement Pieces. If you follow Kylie on Instagram, then you probably understand. It could be
a gorgeous Hermes handbag or a Balmain sequinned blazer, but any statement item is guaranteed to make a boring look turn amazing. Going to a formal dinner but its too cold to wear
your strappy black dress? A sequinned or embroidered blazer thrown on top will instantly add
glamour and make you stand out. The same would look great paired with a simple oce suit,
taking the look from day to night. Happy with your outt but looks too grey and dull? A rose
gold or white and gold handbag or clutch will surely give the "fashion blogger" look, as well as
making others jealous of your new attractive arm candy. Even a leather jacket can be a great
investment, as it gives a "biker-chic" look to your getup. Plus, Kylie loves them.

Jeans. Another simple

BEST BEARD STYLES FOR


TEENAGERS
Teenagers are fascinated by having beards. It is the dream of every
teen ager boy to get the best look out of a beard. They nd beards
to be one of the most presentable forms of appearance. For a fact
that they are growing up and want to show the Man inside them
hence here is to the various looks they can have in beards. Lets
have a look around and see what styles we have to oer them as
suggestions.

1. Medium hair and


beard. Oh yes, nothing
looks better than this look.
It is one of the promising
and sincere manly looks
that the teenagers urge to
have. This look may have
the essence of a medium
length hair cut, more
suited on the silky yet
wavy hair. This combination works like magic on
the appearance.

2. Long hair and


beard. Well, this look
here works well with all
the hair types. Be it
straight, wavy or curly. The
trick is to chop the hair in
manly layers and let the
beard grow. This is a
pleasant beard look for
the teenagers, those who
aim to become the man

3. The subtle stubble look! Well, this is the kind of look that rocks on every teenager.
It describes their transition through childhood to manhood. This includes a decent boys
haircut, the classic cuts along with letting traces of prickelish beard. Thus it doesnt portray as a complete man yet gives them the appearance they want to lead with!

4. Oh well another go go taker look is the squarish look. This comes with a
square type beard cut and similar essence in the haircut. This look is another try on for
the teenagers beard looks. This might be new, but this is fun. Yet it makes the person
stand out. Risk and exposure to fashion are a big combination. Why not try them?

7. Get that relaxed and rejunivated look by gelling/ slicking


your hair in a back brushed look
while growing a thick mane beard
at the frontal look. Yes, thats
another manly look for the teenager boys to target!

8. The biker boys look. Oh


well, who doesnt die for that look.
With the best brushed waves of
the haircut and the rugged yet
thin moustache look on the face.
Thats the kind of beard look teenager boys crave at having.

5. For a teenage beard look, it is a suggestion


for the boys to keep their beards to the jawline,
keep a light moustache and let their hair grow long.
Well, yes there boys we are calling out for that
Korean look. It surely runs good on those Asian features of yours. Well, thats a good fair style to hang
on to.

6. Elite Guys Style is another look to make


you stand out. The purpose here is to let your
beard grow near to your jawline, but it should be
thick enough. You should shave it as it approaches
your cheeks. While keeping your hair in long ip
from the front. Now thats the elite boys style you
are craving for in the teenage boys beard looks.

WORLD MOST EXPENSIVE


SWIMMING POOLS
Isnt a pool just a giant tub of chlorinated water? How the hell do they get so
expensive, then? Marble, water slides, mosaic tiles, and other awe-inspiring
elements thats how.
While researching the most expensive pools built throughout the world,
some sources agreed and others had dierent ideas about which pools are
the most expensive. Such a thing seems strange to argue over; either a pool
costs $10 million or it doesnt. I guess, though, that some sources might
take ination into consideration or others might convert currencies more
liberally.
Whether this list is factual or as potentially untrustworthy as the ones I
sifted through, a sparkling line-up of incredibly expensive and luxurious
pools is what this is about, and we delivered.

Hearst Castle, USA

5.

It already sounds perfectly stunning and regal. Where do you take the kids to
swim? Oh, we live at the Hearst Castle, so we just swim in that $10 million pool we
have lying around in the backyard.

But really, this pool or pools, I suppose, as the Hearst Castle actually boasts 2
pools was built around 1924 to the tune of $10 million. In case you were wondering, thats a sweet sounding tune.
Were not sure whether thats $10 million in 1924 or $10 million our time, but were
hoping the latter, because the former undermines everything weve ever dreamed
the 20s looked like.
Can we call a castle a crib?
The elegant pool, built with marble and mosaic tiles, is privately owned by Mr. William Randolph Hearst, and apparently this is his castle. Move over, MTV.
By the way, this fancy pool in California is the rst and last time we see the USA on
the list. It seems Americas unique craft for engineering all things absurdly lavish is
wait for it sinking. Ah, see what I did there?

Lev Leviev Residence, United Kingdom


This pool is equally as expensive and just as private as the last masterpiece. Situated in London, the pool is owned by an Israeli businessman who one should assume goes by the name Lev
Leviev.
The pool to accompany the city of gold?
Its easy to understand how the pool racked up such a high price tag
when I tell you that it was constructed with mosaic tiles and gold. Yes,
gold. I think Ive read similar descriptions in the Bible, making this
pool the most heavenly on our list!
Also heavenly (or at least thats what I hear) are the spa and steam
bath associated with the giant pool. The Lev Leviev probably didnt
need anything more to make it the perfect venue for relaxation, but
that mysterious businessman is apparently a bit of a spendthrift. Oh,
did the $10 million pool give that away?

4.

SeaGaia Ocean Dome, Japan


This $2 billion structure makes a mockery of those measly $10 million pools we
just ooed and awed over. Oh well, onto bigger and better things!
Speaking of big things, the Ocean Dome is the largest indoor pool in the world,
coming in at a whopping 328,000 square feet. Dont quote me on that number; I
did the math myself. You get the idea unbelievably massive indoor pool.
The only stereotypical surfer joke Ill make all day
The pool boasts a gnarly articial wave pool, and I say gnarly only because surfers
take to these articial waves like theyre the real things. Also included are mock
volcanoes. In case the fear of being trapped in the undercurrent of the wave pool
wasnt enough, you can focus on the sound of articial volcanic eruptions.
The giant Ocean Dome is also equipped with a water slide area. This pool (if you
can call it that) is perfect for every water lover. Surfers, waterpark enthusiasts,

3.

swimmers, and volcano fans can all gather here in unrivaled merriment.

San Alfonso, Chile

2.

Another $2 billion pool, the San Alfonso sees the Ocean Domes largest indoor

pool and raises it a 2008 Guinness World Record. Well played, Chile. The giant
swimming pool took about 5 years to build, and with good reason; its about 20
acres in size. You thought maintaining a 20-acre yard was exhausting - how about
the pool maintenance for this beast?
I suppose the real question is: how do they ll that enormous swimming pool? With
ltered sea water, which makes sense, since the ocean is the only source of water
large enough to ll such a pool.
Maybe the water we see on Earth from space is San Alfonso rather than the sea
Did I mention the pool gets up to 11 feet deep? It almost seems masochistic how
dicult theyve made lling this thing. I bet the maintenance crew cringes every
time some over enthusiastic swimmer launches a cannonball into the water, quivering as that precious water splashes out of the enormous pool.

1.
City of Stars, Egypt

The most expensive pool in the world is the City of Stars, situated in Sharm el Sheikh.
Fun fact: the enormous lagoon-esque pool structure is made by Crystal Lagoons,
which also has its signature on the our last pool, the San Alfonso in Chile.
Along with the largest, 21-acre lagoon, there are 11 other lagoons staggered throughout this tourist attraction. Of course this project rang up a bill of about $5.5 billion,
which is arguably more than most of our dates cost (though it doesnt appear that way
at the mall, does it?).

Constructed in 2009, the City


of Stars easily surpassed all of
the pools previously hailed as
the most expensive.
Crystal Lagoons is a group to
keep an eye on. They have a
seemingly continuous outow
of major, awe-inspiring projects,

including

lavish

courses and water parks.


Should you ever have the
burning desire to swim in an

Crystal Lagoons, you clever pool experts.
Just like the San Alfonso, and probably because its
pioneered by the same team, the water to ll the
lagoons is pulled from the sea and ltered through
technology that was specially created by Crystal
Lagoons.
If you research expensive pools, you might not nd
this behemoth on the list, because its relatively

for its penguins.

Falkland Island gives you the best opportunity of watching penguins without risking an
Antarctic voyage.

Majuli Island, India


If islands on the seas and
oceans are too mainstream for you then give
this obeat island peeping out of river Brahmaputra a try. Majuli is the
largest river island in the
world. Tucked away in

North-Eastern

fringes of India, Majuli is

into the life of the tropical tribes. With greenery galore Majuli is also famous as a bird
watching spot!

Bazaruto Archipelago, Mozambique
Felicitated by the title Pearl of The Indian Ocean Bazaruto archipelago rightly earned
this honour. One of Africas virgin beauties, the island aunts it all. The white sand, the
innite blue and the option of delving into luxury all are abundantly available here.
What sets this island apart is its rich population of fauna. Whale sharks, manta rays,
dolphins, turtles to name a few are permanent residents of the water around the
island.

Capri, Italy
Go to visit Capri once and there is a heavy
chance you may never want to leave. This
is that dream place in our imagination
which has an unsustainable perfection
about it. Its legendary beauty grasped the
kings, artists, popular personalities and
the common man alike. History, art and
culture form the heart and soul of Capri. It
is a magnicent island with exotic villas
and mysterious caves which open and
close with the tides.

6.
Bali, Indonesia
When the small Hindu population of Indonesia thought of nestling somewhere, they chose
Bali. In Bali, Hinduism is much more than just a religion, it is a lifestyle, a disposition which
is hard to ignore. Warm locals ecient in skilled craftsmanship can teach you lots of new
things. Get enthralled by interesting temples and out of the world mythological tales. Experience the unique essence of the Balinese people and make a memory to be treasured
for life.

Galapagos The Spectacular Islands

Obviously, this island does not need any introduction.


The contribution of Galapagos in framing up of
Darwins The Theory Of Natural Selection is known
by all. If the travel bloggers and videographers
records are to be believed then people who set foot
here cry while leaving the island. It is very easy to fall
in love with the unique animals found nowhere else in
the world. Watching a hundred thousand varieties of
living beings existing peacefully without human
disturbances in the moonland type volcanic geography is once in a lifetime experience.

4.
Bora Bora Island, Tahiti
Seclusion, luxury, nature and the horizon-less blue describes Bora Bora. It is the leading
destination of the French Polynesian cluster of island in South Pacic Ocean. If blue is a
word carelessly used by you to express stress then a visit to this island will change that perspective of yours forever. Turquoise is the colour which rules here with towering rainforests and iconic oating bunglows. Though considered a honeymooners hotspot Bora Bora
also oers a whole array of water sports like snorkelling and scuba diving.

Santorini, Greece

3.

How can a list of spectacular Islands be complete


without Santorini! Santorini is actually an active
volcano perched in the sea. With amazing architecture and velvety wine it makes for aromantic holiday
destination. The orange and golden rays of the setting sun kissing the snow coloured houses hanging
from the clis in an uncannily ne-tuned rhythm is
like a poem by nature. A traveler cannot help but
wonder what it would be like to live here forever!

Seychelles
It is perfectly understandable if you visit Seychelles and refuse to return ever! Captivating pristine white sand beaches and trickling azure water will stupefy you for days. The
feel of the soft sands here is something unique which is found in no other part of the
world. Ecotourism is in vogue and there is endless option for those who want to
splurge. Environmental restrictions are very strictly followed in this tiny island country
and its rich biodiversity is responsibly preserved.
