Go and audition for reality shows like Roadies or something. Tip: Remember be worst than ever. No one likes a boring goody two shoes. Deep inside you know while watching these shows you are just waiting for the Satan to get ticked off and waiting for that drama to unfold.

Let’s face it while flicking through the pages of world records most of us check out the stupidest and the utterly pointless records you could dream of. For instance, Ashrita Furman who crushed 80 eggs with his head in one minute. You just need to break one egg more for a new record. Jack Schoff of the U.S. who is the proud holder of this title, with 1094 clocks in his possession. For this record too, you need to just a few more clocks to get Jack’s heart broken.

3) Getting kidnapped or kidnapping someone

It could be anything like a song or lyrics or painting. For example, Naomi Shemer was a famous Israeli songwriter who was accused of plagiarizing her most famous song ‘Jerusalem of Gold’ from an Israeli lullaby. Although many speculated that she copied the song (which probably added to her fame) she never confessed until on her deathbed in 2004.

5) Getting into a relationship with someone famous

Everyone loves a story of a gold digger. It requires no talent what so ever…. except maybe good looks. Is that a talent? Anyways here the only person you must impress is your partner and have many followers and relationship shippers. Don’t wait to be famous, date someone famous!

6) Pray for being born into a rich family in your next life

This is the best way to become famous right from the day you come in this world. I personally think Kardashians or Hilton family would be the best. Getting expensive gifts from all famous brands every day without paying a buck for just posting a pic on Snapchat. Then there is baby Taimur, being born into a family of Nawabs and family of Kapoors wasn’t enough but being shamed for having that name was something that ticked off every Indian. The kid has not even reached six months but has become an Internet sensation already.

7) Sponsor an important Charity Event

This will not only get you famous but will also help others for a good cause. Giving up your time and money will make people remember your name for a long time or at least till the next charity event. You might even land up with your picture on the front page of the local newspaper.

8) Vandalizing Property

This will get you in jail for destruction of property which does not belong to you obviously. This is beneficial for people with anger management issues by making some graffiti on walls or breaking some windows or cars. You’ll be banned from a few places but you will be the hot topic for the next kitty party unless someone is better at vandalizing than you.

9) Making a video on YouTube by self-shaming

We see thousands of video pranks on the Internet everyday, which are hilarious. Your video should be even worse than the other videos on such social networking platforms. The best part is if you are a couch potato, you won’t even have to get out of your house. All you need is a camera, that’s it!

10) Having Real Talent

Bill Gates, J.K. Rowling or Michael Jackson didn’t become famous overnight nor were they born with a silver spoon in their mouth. They thrived, struggled, failed many times but still got up on their feet to achieve the crown which many of us just dream to wear. They not only dreamed big but they also ended living their dreams. People like these have created a mark in history which no one can dare to erase. They are not only famous but also immortal through their achievements.

Hey, my name is Gauri Jar I'm studying Computer Engineering and right now in the first year. I am just another average teenager who thinks she can write. I spend most of my time in reading dystopian books, watching TV series and listening to Kpop music.

Victoria’s Secret’s Fallen Angels: Is VS Collective Little Too Late?

Published

Victoria Secret's Fallen Angels II News Aur Chai

After years of selling misogynistic fantasies masked as insecurity for women worldwide, Victoria’s Secret (VS), the lingerie and personal care mammoth, has come upon a business-altering decision. Everyone’s aesthetic and sexual fantasy – the VS Angels have fallen.

After multiple accusations of sexual assault, overt body shaming, and transphobia, their refusal to take action against high-profile executives guilty of inappropriate behaviour has led to its downfall. 2018 was possibly the worst year for the company as more body positive and inclusive brands like Aerie, Lively, and Savage X Fenty rose.

The mystical barbie-doll VS Angels, extravagantly clad in wings and bejewelled lingerie, had more or less remained the same in the last three decades since VS started their fashion shows. Models bearing bodies that ‘please’ the male gaze, just-enough-plump and just-enough-toned, were no longer a thing of beauty standards to the common woman. After all, feminists remind us repeatedly that autonomy over lingerie remains with the person who wants to wear it rather than cishet men.

There was a time when lacy push-ups and the thick underwear band labelled PINK was found in the boudoir drawer of every female teenager and adult alike. No one would be caught dead wearing something else. But in a mere decade, the tables have turned as no one would dare step inside the walls of the magnum opus of male sexual fantasy. It’s safe to say that VS brought this tragedy upon itself with its sluggish attitude toward the changing social norms of body positivity and culture inclusivity.

But recently, VS announced a defining move – one which may have come a little too late but alas, it came. Gone were the glamorous, airbrushed, and pushed-up fantasies of the Angels. Instead came in the Victoria’s Secret Collective. This high-profile seven-member board is a chance for VS to redeem its reputation and right its past wrongs. The septet consists of the pink-haired member of the American National Women’s Soccer team, Megan Rapinoe, Actor, entrepreneur, and activist Priyanka Chopra Jonas, inclusivity activist and model Paloma Elsesser, transgender model-actor Valentina Sampaio, Sino-American world champion skier Eileen Gu, model and South Sudanese-Australian model Adut Akech, and English photographer and podcast host Amanda de Cadanet.

This board is a shot at inclusivity and is reflective of real-life women as the members hail from different cultures, are from different age groups, and in some way or another, are more relatable to the common woman. This diverse set of ambassadors will spearhead this new campaign. They will be alternatively seen as an essential part of VS’s revamped brand image, including their advertisements and social media. VS’s new move is indeed a step toward becoming more like their well-off competitors, who are idealistically anti-Victoria’s Secret.

What’s notable is that this decision of VS is not just superficial to woo their consumer base but is one aimed at its very corporate structure. Billionaire Leslie Wexner, the founder of VS’s parent company L Brands, and Ed Razek, a top executive of the said company, will not be a part of the revamped identity of the lingerie giant. Razek and Wexner have been accused multiple times of inappropriate conduct, sexual advances and remarks, and exploitation of models.

VS has made it clear that the two will not be associated with VS anymore. The company will split from L Brands and subsequently from the toiletry giant Bath & Body Works to become an independent entity. VS will now have top-tier decisions taken by more women executives as Martha Pease, the new Chief Marketing Officer, heads the Collective and plans on having an all-women committee.

A complete upheaval of the VS stores will see the signature Angels’ posters stripped off of their walls, TVs, websites, and social media. Mannequins and models will exhibit a diverse range of bodies and products.

In an interview with The New York Times, Martin Waters, a former executive of VS international, said, “When the world was changing, we were too slow to respond. We needed to stop being about what men want and to be about what women want.”

In a recent attempt to foreshadow the company’s announcement of becoming “what women want”, VS launched a Mothers’ Day campaign. Displaying pregnant women as their models was a first for the company. Apparently, for VS, motherhood was not sexy enough till now.

The VS collective board will promote the upcoming product releases such as maternity wear along with the same old thongs and lacy bras. Other TBA products will see a collaboration between Chopra Jonas and Rapinoe.

Skin Care Tips To Survive Summers In India

Published

on

Skin Care in Summer in India | News Aur Chai

The summer heat in India can be harsh on your skin if you don’t take proper care of it. The blistering heat, dust, and pollution take away the natural shine and, in some cases, invite infections. To avoid all of these annoyances and to keep your skin glowing as it did before, try these summer skincare tips:

Clothing

Tight clothing during hot weather will irritate the skin and make sweaty areas of the body itch even more. To combat the heat, cotton and lighter fabrics are vital. Try wearing breathable fabrics.

Diet

Applying creams is not enough; you need to enrich your skin properly to keep it glowing. Juicy fruits and vegetables should be consumed in large quantities as they are high in nutrients and antioxidants that protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Try consuming cooling or seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Exercise

Exercise increases blood flow that ensures that oxygen reaches the skin cells. Any tissue damage (skin burn, etc) is repaired by the body.

Exfoliation

It is a process that helps in the removal of dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Exfoliate your skin regularly for healthy and glowing skin. You can simply use a washcloth to gently scrub your skin. Try this process at least once a week.

Eyes and Lips

Protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses while stepping out in the sun. Protect your lips by applying a lip balm.

Feet

It is important to take care of your feet as well. Give yourself a manicure; remove the dead and dry skin cells with a scrub and moisturize them later.

Minimal Makeup

Go easy on make-up during summers; avoid anything heavy it’s most likely to melt off the minute you step out in the sweltering summer heat. When it comes to makeup during the summers, keep it simple as the skin needs to breathe.

Sunscreen

Summertime necessitates the use of sunscreen. It is important to safeguard yourself from tanning and skin burns. It also helps in protecting our skin from harmful UV rays. You should apply sunscreen at least twice a day. It is a must-have item, if you don’t have one; you should invest in sunscreen.

Stay Hydrated

It is extremely important to stay hydrated; especially during hot weather. Sweat causes us to lose a lot of our body fluids. Our bodies are severely harmed when the levels of body fluids drop. Staying hydrated also helps to flush out toxins from the body and feel refreshed. Carry a bottle of water everywhere you go, set reminders to drink water throughout the day so that you don’t forget to hydrate yourself!

Update your skincare products

It is very important to update your skincare products during summertime. During winters we need stronger creams to fight the cold and dry weather, but in the summer, we need hydrating products. Buy a moisturizer that is lightweight and non-greasy.

 Use natural remedies

Skincare home remedies are useful as they make your skin glow naturally without causing any harm. Applying Aloe Vera gel, Cucumber mask, Coconut oil, Honey mask, Lemon mask, Orange Peel mask, Turmeric paste are few remedies that soothe your skin during summer.
