Spotlight on '2yungkings' : The most stylish kids on Instagram

By: Farrah Estrella
2yungkings
While scrolling through none other than Vogue Magazine's Instagram page, I stumbled upon these cute twins and immediately I thought I have to share these pictures.

With over 63 thousand followers on Instagram as we speak and that number is growing by the minute, these twins style is taking Instagram by storm. We assumed that they are dressed by their mother and if she is not a stylist, she needs to become one. 

2yungkings are certainly taking kids clothing to the next level with their swag and unique style.

Check out some of our favorite looks from their Instagram page below, follow them on Instagram @2yungkings.

Plus size brand Ask Fashion launches ‘kickstarter’ campaign to fund next collection

By: Farrah Estrella


Hola Estrellitas!!

I have always been a supporter of new up and coming designers and this particular designer is no exception. I met Amanda Koker owner of Ask Fashion during Full Figured Fashion Week 2014 in New York, at a press meet and greet and she was very friendly and approachable. 

When I heard about her "Kickstarter campaign to help her fund her Spring/Summer collection I felt I needed to help her and share it with all of you.

ASK Fashion is promising to bring you a collection of edgy prints, classic shapes and kick ass style for plus size women sizes 14- 28.

Amanda has some great prizes for the people that help her fund her collection including an Ask Fashion dress, tote, beanie, scarf and more depending on the amount of your donation. She also has a breakdown of where the money will go once it is collected on the kickstarter campaign page.

Check out her Kickstarter campaign below for more details, click on the link:

One thing I like about her campaign is that if she gets funded she will manufactured all of her garments in the USA to make sure that the quality is good but also to help with jobs and help boost the local economy.

Amanda also has big plans for Ask Fashion, she wants to expand her production abilities, print her own fabrics, showcase her line during New York Fashion Week, upgrade her website, build her own e-store, expand into new markets, and compensate photographers, models, assistants and web developers, etc. with a fair wage for their services. As you know all of that takes money and for an up and coming designer, it could get very costly.

You can help Ask Fashion by Amanda Koker reach their goal by donating as low as $1 to her Kickstarter campaign.

Model and reality star Kendall Jenner has been named the new face of cosmetics giant Estee Lauder. As part of her contract she will appear in TV, digital and print ad campaigns for the brand.
Kendall, 19, had a breakout year this year, she walked in all mayor fashion weeks for designers such as Chanel, Balmain, Pucci, Fendi, Marc Jacobs and Givenchy just to name a few.
It is a great move for Estee Lauder, the company is trying to appeal to a younger audience and hiring Kendall does exactly that. She is young, beautiful and a social media powerhouse.

As part of the Kardashian family, she practically grew up in front of the camera in reality shows.
With over 16 million fans on Instagram and more on Twitter, she can surely engage and bring the Estee Lauder brand to a younger demographic.

Check out pictures below of her recent spread for Vogue Magazine. What do you guys think?
