Which Disney Diva Was Your Middle School Crush?

Miley Cyrus vs. Demi Lovato

In middle school you were awkward, goofy, and completely obsessed with Disney Channel. Sequined purses were big, Aeropostale was written on every boy's chest, Webkinz were the toy of the century, and you knew every single lyric to High School Musical. But the two biggest front runners of your Disney generation were Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato.
Cyrus was famous for her star studded double life as Hannah Montana bringing her super fame. Lovato was the star of Camp Rock and Sonny With A Chance, two very successful Disney productions. You liked either Cyrus or you liked Lovato. In real life the two Disney stars were close friends but have now gone their separate ways in the modern music industry.
Though they're completely unrecognizable now, you know exactly which one you prefer.

Miley Cyrus

Where do we begin? Disney Miley is not the woman we know today. She used to like glitter and blonde wigs and sport the fun name "Hannah Montana". She had bubble gum pop hits that filled giant stadiums, something that no other Disney star could match. She was more than just a Disney Channel Star, she was a pop star winning award after award at such a young age. Little girls envied her and little boys wanted to meet her. After a long successful run of "Hannah Montana" Cyrus took a turn for new tastes. It started with party favorite "Party In The USA" and darkened to "I Can't Be Tamed" leading to the Miley Cyrus we know today. Naked. Unpredictable. Tongue wagging free spirit with a love for sex, drugs, and alcohol. But we love that she dared to be different.

Demi Lovato

She was Disney Channel's sweetheart always portraying the roles as the nice girl next door. She had killer vocals and Disney banked on that slowly inching her way to superstardom. As soon as she became a hit sensation with Camp Rock, she was just as big if not bigger than the current boyband heart throbs, The Jonas Brothers. In following years Lovato faced sky high fame but it brought out some obstacles. She was lonely. She was depressed. She was using self harm and she had an eating disorder. Today, we see someone renewed. Lovato is a woman of empowerment bringing body confidence, self worth, and girl power to a worldwide stage. Lovato is back and we love it.

5 Things From Pre-School You Wish You Had In Adulthood
Coloring Books If you haven't heard, adult coloring books were all the rage this year. Obviously they're slightly more complex photos with no Disney characters but the serve the same purpose. They relieve stress! Coloring is therapeutic for many people and if coloring in the picture of a flower or a bear in a river, so be it. Preschool coloring was merely a distraction for young minds allowing them to embrace creativity, color outside out of the lines, and figure out their favorite color. Today, adults love coloring books because they keep them sane after a long day at work. Nap Time Adults today and especially teenagers are more sleep deprived than ever. Our schedules are packed, we don't see sleep as crucial, and our phones light up the night. Businesses are open later just because of this and your work for school and your job is more important than achieving shut eye. Nap time during preschool kept kids energetic and happy, it hasn't changed for adults. A nap can do wonders in a person. After all, sleep is essential day to day even if many feel the need to skip it. Recess A break today is squeezing in lunch between classes or eating at your desk. Offices impose quiet spaces to prevent you from talking to coworkers. Your break room is the size of a box and the longer you take on a break, the more you seem replaceable to a boss. Recess is so important for adults and children alike because it lets our minds take a break from the stress. This not only makes people more productive but improves their overall well being. Imagine 15 minutes every other hour just to pause and relax, how nice would that be? No Phones Think about how many times your phone buzzes in one day. Texts, tweets, emails, calls, snapchat, Facebook tagging, Instagram likes and the list goes on and on. When you were in preschool, the only stress you had was if you could win freeze tag or if you could run the fastest. You met your friends on the playground without needing a texting play by play of how close you were to the meeting place. Phones have destroyed communication. We base our worth on "likes" and followers. Though I love my iPhone, there are so many days when I would love to get off the grid for a bit. No Bills Mortgage. Car payment. Phone bill. Utilities. Credit card debt. Insurance. Student Loans. Healthcare. Taxes. Cable. Should I go on? Bills consume the lives of older teenagers and adults. A pre-schooler doesn't have any concept for money, let a lone a bill. Bills are important because they pay for the things we enjoy however they can create a lot of stress and unhappiness as people can literally drown in overwhelming debt. Preschool is nice because no bills, no problem. You get to wake up every morning without the worry that you've missed your phone bill for the month. Just one more thing to think about.
Could you pass a drug test today?
Be honest. Everyone knows of a friend who smokes a little bit of weed, indulged in a lot of alcohol over the weekend, and made a questionable decision to try cocaine. I'm not trying to be funny. I'm being realistic. Drugs are very integrated into society regardless if it's legal or not. Though I personally do not condone the use of these drugs, it's really none of my business if my friends decide to indulge in them. However, if you're applying for a job, playing a college sport, getting a drug test done at a hospital, etc. You might want to be cautious of your choices on your night on the town before you lose that job, scholarship, or promotion. Drugs are fun for many people but they come at a high risk. (Reporter Kyle Jaegar from Business Insider posted the article "How Long Various Drugs Stay In Your System" and broke down the statistics. I have listed them below.) All I'm saying is, one night of fun lasts longer than you think. ALCOHOL Example: Beer, Liquor, Wine Urine: Three to five days Blood: 10 to 12 hours Hair: Up to 90 days AMPHETAMINES Example: Adderall Urine: One to three days Blood: About 12 hours Hair: Up to 90 days BARBITURATES Example: Mebaral, Nembutal Urine: Two to four days Blood: One to two days Hair: Up to 90 days CANNABIS Example: Weed, Dabs Urine: Seven to 30 days Blood: About two weeks Hair: Up to 90 days COCAINE Example: Cocaine Urine: Three to four days Blood: One to two days Hair: Up to 90 days HEROIN Example: Heroin Urine: Three to four days Blood: Up to 12 hours Hair: Up to 90 days LSD Example: LSD Urine: One to three days Blood: Two to three hours Hair: Up to three days MDMA Example: Ecstacy, Molly Urine: Three to four days Blood: One to two days Hair: Up to 90 days METHAMPHETAMINE Example: Crystal Meth Urine: Three to six days Blood: 24 to 36 hours Hair: Up to 90 days MORPHINE Example: Morphine Urine: Two to three days Blood: Six to eight hours Hair: Up to 90 days
16 Fast Food Chains Where You Can Score Student Discounts
I could go to the gym...or eat more pizza. Pizza. Fast food is the American Way especially if you're a college student. From the local restaurants you fumble into after a night at the bars or the random Wednesday night where you order an extra large pizza only for yourself...your bank account begins to suffer. Though most college kids complain about the prices of everything, they still can find enough pennies to pay for their Chipotle burrito. But most importantly, any student discount can help. Below is a comprised list of 16 fast food restaurants that give you a discount if you flash your valid student ID: *DISCLAIMER: Every student discount varies by location. Not all locations provide these discounts to students even with a valid student ID.* 1. Pizza Hut: Students love pizza which is exactly why you can get 10-20% off your next midnight snack if you can show your valid student ID. 2. Arby's: You know what taste good?

Chico-Fil-A will take care of that for you by giving you a free drink if you flash your valid student ID. You just have to buy something too. 5.

Dairy Queen: This one largely depends on the local deals in your area. Ask! 10. McDonald's: A valid student ID can earn you 10% off your next meal. I'm lovin' it. 11. Papa Johns: Your pizza may be cheaper depending on where you live. Ask! 12. Qdoba: All you need is $5 thanks to Qdoba's 5 buck student burrito meals. 13. TCBY: Fro-yo goodness comes with 15% any purchase with a handy valid student ID. 14. Dunkin' Donuts: Flash that valid student while purchasing your morning coffee and you'll possibly land yourself with a cheaper price tag. 15. Firehouse Subs: If your school has a partnership, this could be your lucky day with 10% off. 16. Dominos Pizza: You may want to call instead of sending the pizza emoji, but dominos frequently has student deals. Just be on the lookout! That's it, I need to shove my face with fast food right now.
Demi Lovato Launches Makeup Line For NYC Cosmetics
When it comes to affordable makeup, there are quite a few brands that come to mind. One of those makeup brands happen to be NYC New York Color. If you thought e.l.f. cosmetics were affordable, you have yet to give NYC a chance and believe me, some of their products are so worth it. If it makes you feel any better, our favorite woman of confidence, Demi Lovato -- is not only the face of NYC, but she has also created her own line of makeup with the brand. There's no doubt in my mind that this line will be beautiful just like the singer/songstress herself. The name of the line is Lovatics [named about Lovato] and it consists of a 12-shade neutral eye shadow palette, lip-and-cheek stains (in four colors), a mascara, and an eyebrow pencils (in two hues), according to POPSUGAR. They also added a quote from Demi saying: "I actually picked the shades from the shades of makeup that I like to wear during the day," she told us. "I've been wearing makeup since I was a young girl, because I did beauty pageants, so I know a lot about makeup. When I got to do this line it was really exciting for me. When I travel, yesterday for instance, all I wore was the lip and cheek tint, the NYC New York Color Get It All Foundation Stick, and the brow pencil," she said. "That's literally all I use because I like to think that beauty comes from within. As much as I can go without it, awesome. But also, I have a side of me where I go on stage and I have to wear makeup so often that I like to know what I'm wearing. I like to pick the colors myself, and I get to have fun with it." Keep an eye out because this amazing line of cosmetics will be making their way to both Target and Walmart this month. Keep scrolling to get a sneak peek of the products debuting below. Are you excited for this launch? Will you be investing in any of these products? @TessStevens @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @ButterflyBlu @VeronicaArtino @stephosorio
10 Things I Wish I Knew Before I Started College
1. You may not find your BFFs right away. Making friends is hard. Like, really hard. And figuring out who your "life-long best friends" are going to be is so unrealistic because you barely know who you are let alone what kind of friends you're looking for. There's no such thing as cliques anymore, you can be friends with anyone and everyone which gives you the liberty to meet new kinds of people. You'll be amazed which people strike your interest and what living next door to someone can create. College friends can become family so quickly. However, I didn't find my BFFs until my sophomore year and looking back, I'm happy for it. Because now I feel that I fit in and the wait was just what I needed. I wouldn't trade them for the world. 2. You'll gain most of your weight because of alcohol. Of course you're going to drunkenly eat a million extra slices of pizza and gorge on unlimited food in the dining hall. You're going to skip the gym because it's too far of a walk even though you walk all over campus. You'll blame your weight gain on Netflix yet you will completely ignore the gallons of alcohol you will chug on the weekends. You don't really know why you're so obsessed with Natty because it's the equivalent of piss water yet you still drink it leading to more weight gain. As soon as you realize that there are calories in alcohol, you'll learn to stay away. 3. It's easy to fall in love with your friends. Friendships often times lead to hookups or relationships. Why? Because you start to realize that your best friend is also someone you desire. They kind of go hand in hand. Sometimes you're going to meet someone and not know how to explain how you went from shaking their hand in your dorm a year ago to waking up in their dorm one or two times a week. There's going to be plenty of platonic love and friendships that you're going to form but there will also be a friend of yours that you're going to fall in love with. Even if it only goes as far as a crush. And then in 20 years you're going to be laughing on the couch telling your kids why mom wouldn't give you the time of the day in the beginning because you were too much of a frat guy. 4. Once you skip class once, you'll likely do it again. I PROMISE. DON'T DO IT. 5. It's okay to move on from high school and leave your high school friends behind. High School is a leash and I personally believe that 99% of the friends that you had there are people you should leave behind. I only stay in contact with about 5 friends from high school which I think is a lot. I know people in college who are constantly obsessing over their high school memories and friends and to be honest, no one wants to hear about it. High School friends only know you from child hood and I think they prevent you from being independent to a degree. I love the remaining few from my past who have remained true and faithful friends all these years but we're all over the country doing our own thing and we're all still very close because we can come home on a break and pick back up where we left off. I don't have to talk to them everyday. I know there's some of you out there saying I'm totally wrong and your BFF was from high school all through college and I applaud you. But I would have never arrived to where I am now had I discarded my high school persona and friends, and trust me, I LOVED LOVED LOVED high school. 6. You will have a break down and sob to your mom on the phone. IT'S OKAY. There was a big oak tree right outside of my dorm that I would always walk over to when I was having a break down. It had the perfect metal table underneath and it was secluded from the campus lawn. I remember many, many phone calls being dialed to my mother begging her to come rescue me. I had a really bad freshman year because I was incredibly homesick, I didn't feel like I fit in, and I was unhappy with life in general. So I would sit crying to my mom how badly I wanted to transfer. Today, I am so happy I had that space because it was a comforting spot when there was only stress. And just to let you know, I ended up staying at my university and I miss it constantly. 7. Grades aren't everything. NO ONE CARES YOU HAVE STRAIGHT A'S. C'S GET DEGREES. MAYBE NOT YOUR FAVORITE INTERNSHIP. MAYBE NOT A SCHOLARSHIP. BUT THEY GET YOU THROUGH COLLEGE AND A GPA IS NOT REQUIRED IN A JOB INTERVIEW. But yes, I have above a 3.0 (otherwise my mom would kill me). 8. You can be whoever you want to be. Want to dye your hair a crazy color? Do it. Interested in expressing your love for anime? There's a club for that. Picking up a new sport? You have a 24hr free gym membership. Are you gay? Go kiss some boys. Trying for a preppy or grunge look? Switch it up. Is your dream to be in a sorority? Defy the stereotypes. You can be whoever the hell you want to be and no one is going to tell you otherwise. Pick up a new language. If you want to be a stoner who loves alcohol and cheetos, COOL. There really is no one in between you and the person you dream of being. And if you really just want to be a cat lady who just so happens to have a pet parrot, please be my guest. 9. Studying is necessary. You will fail if you do not study. I repeat, you will fail if you do not study. 10. Books for class are optional. Please check to see if the book for your plant biology class is optional. Odds are that even if it's required, you'll never open the thing once. It'll be a complete waste of money and you'll sell it back for $4 at the end of the semester. Most of the time you can get by without paying for a book but they are insanely expensive for no reason. After freshman year, I started to refrain myself from buying books because it was a cost that was unnecessary. And if you insist on buying that overpriced book, I'm sure you can find a used one for way cheaper online. Good luck.
6 Exercises Demi Lovato Does on Tour
Working out on tour is no fun (to see other celebrities try to fit workouts in --> http://www.vingle.net/posts/530100) so its pretty impressive that Demi is so dedicated. Try to do three sets of these moves three times a week for a rocking bod like Demi's! 1) Lunge-Kick Combo - Stand with feet hip-width apart holding a 10-pound dumbbell in each hand, arms by sides. - Lunge back with right leg, bending both knees 90 degrees. - Pressing through left heel, stand up on left leg as you bring right knee up and kick right leg forward. - Return to rear lunge and repeat. Do 10 reps; switch legs and repeat. 2) Curtsy with Side Kick - Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, arms bent by sides. - Lunge right leg diagonally back, crossing it behind left leg, and lower into a curtsy. - Stand up on left leg as you swing right leg directly out to right side. Return to curtsy position and repeat. - Do 10 reps; switch sides and repeat. 3) Wood Chop Squat - Securely attach one end of a resistance band to a sofa leg or a sturdy post. Stand, feet hip-width apart, with your left side to sofa and grasp other end of band in both hands, fists by left hip (choke up on band to take up slack). - Squat, then stand up as you pull band diagonally upward toward the right, rotating torso toward right. Return to squat. - Do 10 reps; switch sides and repeat. 4) Plank Walk Push-Up - Stand with feet hip-width apart, then hinge forward from hips and place palms on floor in front of feet. - Walk hands forward until body is in plank position, then do a push-up. Walk hands back toward feet to return to start. - Do 10 reps. 5) Burpee - Stand with feet hip-width apart, then crouch and place palms on floor in front of feet. - Jump feet back into plank position, then jump feet toward hands again and stand up. Jump high, reaching arms overhead. Land with knees slightly bent and repeat. - Do 10 reps. 6) Crunch - Lie faceup on floor, knees bent, feet flat, and touch hands lightly to ears, elbows out to sides. - Crunch up then lower. Do 20 reps.
