TSR STAFF: Christina C! @cdelafresh ____________________________________ #Roommates, for all those of you fed up with trying to date in 2018, I present to you a woman named #Natasha who took her love life into her own hands. This past weekend, Natasha duped hundreds of guys she met on #Tinder to meet her at #UnionSquare in #NewYorkCity where they were supposed to “catch a DJ set” for a date. ______________________________________ Little did these men know, Natasha was about to go all #HungerGames on ‘em to find out who was the best match for her, according to @gothamist. Guarded by security, the woman started eliminating men from the running based on a series of characteristics such as supporting Trump or having a long beard. ______________________________________ Then it got real when she put the remaining suitors into competition, having them do things like-read more at TheShadeRoom.com. 📸: @gettyimages

Tekashi 6ix9ine had a court appearance in New York today for a sexual misconduct case that stems from a few years back. According to @TMZ_tv, he pled guilty to one count of Use of a Child in a Sexual Performance in 2015 but the judge gave him a conditional release and deferred his sentence for 2 years. _________________________________________ Under the terms of the deal, he was supposed to stay out of trouble, complete community service, get mental health treatment, and write an apology letter to the 13-year-old victim. __________________________________________ Well, they are claiming 6ix9ine violated the agreement because he’s been arrested a few times since then. The @Blast reports that the Manhattan D.A. Office is now recommending the rapper serve 1-3 years in a state prison and register as a sex offender, even though he reportedly was a minor when the incident occurred. __________________________________________ The judge pushed the sentencing back— read more at TheShadeRoom.com!

Nala was poorly at the weekend & spent some time at the vets! (She had a tummy bug) It’s only when you don’t have your furry friend following your every move or snuggling into you that you truly realise how much you depend on them too! She’s feeling much more chipper now (but my god her farts are something else) Still love you though Nala 😂🤢💗 tell me in the comments all about your furry friends please!

Autumn shades in summer 🍂☀️ Happy Wednesday all! FINALLY finishing my edit of a vlog I’ve been meaning to get up (thanks for the patience, I’m not the best at juggling a handful of creative projects all at once & no amount of list making and time scheduling improves that for me apparently! 😂) It’s also a long one so hopefully that makes up for it! ✌🏼 Hope your week is going well, don’t forget to make the most of it, even if you’re finding it tough, because you’ll never get it back! 💗💗💗
It’s too hot to go shopping, but we had a little mooch through town this morning & I grabbed myself a little ice cream 🍦 Hope you’re all having a lovely day! Let me know what you’re getting up to in the comments! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
Happy Sunday ❤️ Read my story to see where I’ve been this week & what I’ve been up to!
Feliz cumpleaños @malala ! Thank you so much for the memories and experiences in Brazil. Definitely an eye opener on how many women don’t have access to education and how we can change that, women and men together. You have a very sweet strong soul and I wish you the best for today and always. Keep inspiring ♥️ | pic by @luisadorr
Two years ago we started Love Army from a place of unconditional Love. Unconditional Love means giving without expecting something in return. Today we joined Malala in Brazil to learn about her work for girl’s education. Malala has been supporting, from a place of unconditional Love, many initiatives around the world that help girls receive quality education. Both Jérôme & I being men, we didn’t necessarily grow up aware of what it really means to be a woman, or of the prejudice that often comes with it. We are honored to now have the best teacher in the world for this and hungry to learn how we also can play a role in this fight for girls’ education. We don’t think this fight is only for women. Men also can be working hard for girl’s rights, men also can fight for equality, and men also can help each other not fall into the pool and drink coconut water (SWIPE). Sending unconditional love, from Malala, Jérôme & Juanpa ♥️
* B R O N Z E * The daily summer struggle of trying to bronze your face to match your body 😂 I’ve been wearing a lot less makeup at the moment & usually just blending some concealer under my eyes, a wash of matte colour on the lid, a touch of mascara & going for a much more golden highlighter as opposed to my favourite pink! My brows are in desperate need of a thread though so ignore those hungry caterpillars ☺️ What’s your summer go-to for makeup? 👩🏼🎨

How is everyone in the UK coping with the heatwave? I’m not going to lie, I’m sweating in places I didn’t think possible, like the inside of my elbows! I do love that it puts so many people in such a good mood though, and brings everyone out of their houses! ☀️ (for my international followers who live in hot climates, not a lot of people in the UK have air conditioning in their houses as we NEVER get this sort of weather, so we’re all a lot more clammy than normal haha any tips?)
Feliz cumpleaños @jayalvarrez ! Been having the craziest week in Hawaii. First time surfing and I felt like Stitch when he first achieved it. Thanks for the coaching Jay, you the man 🏄🤙🏻
When it’s definitely not sweater weather but you’re craving the fresh-ness of Autumn & lighting candles & feeling cosy! 🍂 Just me? 🙋🏼♀️ (p.s. Any of my American followers know when the new fall scents come out in @bathandbodyworks? I’ve seen the smaller ones have already come in, but I’m talking the PROPER full collection?) Also, have been really struggling to sleep recently, and anyone that knows me knows this isn’t normal! 😂 I’m trying to implement more of a wind down night time routine as I know this helps, less screen time & all the lavender product I can get my hands on but if you have any tips, I’d love them 💤
Aloha Hawaii 🦈 • I’ve always wanted to swim with sharks as a kid. I was so amazed with their mellow, elegant and peaceful behavior. Very beautiful. Spending the week here with @jayalvarrez, thank you for showing me your home brother. We are shooting something special for you guys. Stay tuned 🤙🏻
Going to dive straight into this and watch @loveisland with snacks! This time of the evening is probably my favourite! Not just because love island is on, but because it’s usually met with a golden sunset as we’ve been having such nice weather. 🌅 DREEEAMMMYYY! Who’s your favourite in the villa? I NEED ALL THE LOVE ISLAND CONVO I CAN GET!! Haha

We’re finally filling up the “too-big-but-will-deffo-enjoy-it” swimming pool ready for serious fun in the sun! (May have also ordered an inflatable or two) & a giant sheet of plastic for water slide version 2! (Who watched the vlog last year where we used a kids one & @markyyferris broke it 😂😂) what plans do you have for next week? ☀️☀️
Nala has the right idea! 😴😴 It’s been a very long but exciting and fun-filled week with friends and the launch of @zoellabeauty #splashbotanics which I am BEYOND thrilled so many of you are loving & reading your lovely reviews and comments have been the cherry on the cake! I am now VERY excited to sleep without waking every hour trying to make sure there’s nothing I’ve missed for the product launch which is essentially what I’ve been doing for 2 weeks! Haha 😂🙈 (FYI, leaving a notepad next to your bed for those 4am panic reminders is a very good idea, or yanno...notes in your phone) Thanks again to those who are continually supporting everything I’m doing & injecting so much positivity into my life/the World Wide Web 💗💗
