The Sleek Belt clothing SECRET you need to know about!

The Sleek Belt secret

Hey girl, STOP yanking up your pants! 🚫 (It’s not cute)

Don’t worry, I have a solution for you. My dear friend Mary has created a product called THE SLEEK BELT that will solve all of your pant problems.

The Sleek Belt secret review

Basically, it’s a suuuuper sleek belt that will keep your pants up and look smooth under any shirt or tank. The belt goes through your pant loops just like any other belt would and fastens using velcro.

The secure feeling of the belt is addicting, and now I can’t go without it. I didn’t realize just HOW often I used to pull my skinny jeans up for fear of an unwanted peek-a-boo!

The Sleek Belt review

The Sleek Belt does come in different sizes, I’m wearing a size 4-6. Color options are black or champagne- I already have both!

Did anyone say gift idea? (It’s only $19.95)

The Vampire Diaries Cast Tell Me Their Favorite Scenes & WTF Moments

I know a lot of ya’ll #TVD fans have been waiting for this video!

Here is part 2 of my chat with The Vampire Diaries cast on Clevver. The stars dish on their FAVORITE scenes they filmed from all 8 seasons, along with the craziest WTF moments while on set.

Misty Kingma interview The Vampire Diaries cast on set in Atlanta

To interview the cast I got to visit the set in Atlanta, Georgia and tour some of their iconic sets. In the pic above you’ll notice I’m in the armory, which was so rad to see IRL!

Misty Kingma interviews Paul Wesley TVD

One of my favorite cast members to interview was Paul Wesley. You’ll have to watch the interview video because Paul dishes on his “Stepdad” skills, and picks Steroline VS Klaroline!

Oh yeah, and I managed to make him laugh 😉

Meet: Clothes and Pizza’s Abby Mills

Abby Mills Clothes & Pizza fashion blogger

Abby Mills is probably the coolest girl I know. 

And it’s been that way ever since we met in the dorms freshman year of college. Abby was the girl you envied with the effortless flair and contagious personality. She was friends with everyone. Abby is one of the best living and breathing examples of “Be Yourselfie” that I know.

The proof is in her inevitable fashion blog: Clothes and Pizza. Yes!

Abby is a talent graphic designer/art director at a digital agency in Brooklyn by day, clothes horse by night. (She said it, not me!)

You know, I’ve been friends with Abby Mills since we watched Laguna Beach together and drank way too many Monster + vodkas.

So Abby delighted me in some of my burning questions below.

1. Where do you find your clothes?

I do about 80% of my shopping online. Who’s got time to physically go into actual stores anymore? I use sites like Asos or Nordstrom that have free shipping and return policies, so when things inevitably don’t fit, I can easily return or exchange them. I mostly shop for vintage in-person (vintage sizing is inconsistent and trying on is a must!). But I will occasionally grab vintage goodies online (Etsy, Instagram, Depop)—I actually bought my wedding dress on Etsy.

2. How long does it take you to get dressed in the morning?

It takes me less than 10 minutes to get dressed in the morning. I like to sleep in as late as possible, so getting ready quickly is a necessity. To streamline the process, I spend a few minutes before I go to sleep thinking about the next day’s outfit. I usually focus on one piece I want to wear (like a tartan skirt or leather pants) and build the rest of the look around that item.

3. Fav piece of clothing in your closet right now.

My favorite piece in my closet right now is a vintage yellow bowling shirt I scored at Housing Works last week. “Captain Delores” is embroidered over the front chest pocket. It’s pretty incredible.

4. If you had to choose: Clothes OR Pizza?

PIZZA. All day, everyday.

Guys, this is a game changer.

14 Times Kylie Jenner was a good role model

Scratch that, GREAT role model.

For your #MondayMotivation I’m sharing this digital episode of Clevver’s LISTED that I wrote, produced, and hosted all for your viewing pleasure.

#Day1 – Renee DuShane (@ALittlePieceofInsane) a 21 year old college student who was born with #PfiefferSyndrome. Renee described it as “a genetic disorder where the bones in my face don’t really know how to fuse correctly so part of my jaw is really small. I had to have surgery when I was born so that my brain could grow.” Renee is so strong willed and a super intelligent girl who told me that while growing up she never had many issues with bullying. "I went to school with all the same kids all the way through high school. Right around senior year, I started getting very anxious about having to explain my condition to all of the new people I would meet in college. I started going on Tumblr and saw lots of profiles of positive, confident people” that inspired her to start sharing her photos even with her insecurities. “It’s so hard to keep myself from responding to the negative comments,” she told me. “Even harder is keeping my friends from getting angry.” It's so important to have a great group of friends. Renee also told me about the tattoo she recently got of her life motto: Stay Strong, Always Love. “Loving is always going to be a better place than hating,” she shared. Check out Renee’s Instagram @ALittlePieceofInsane – she’s showing the world #IAmMoreThan my forehead. I love you Renee! She is so awesome & inspiring. Renee taught ME that #IAmMoreThan the negative comments that I read.

I’m breaking down exactly 14 times Kylie Jenner was a GREAT role model. The list includes but is not limited to good ole fashioned volunteering, a social media anti bullying campaign, and standing up for equality. See guys, it’s Kool to give back!

Denver Birthday Party Scavenger Hunt

For my #ThirtyONEderful birthday this year (that I share with my twin sister and my best friend) we decided to do a scavenger hunt in downtown Denver!

I thought I’d share the clues and scavenger hunt details with you! Anyone is welcome to replicate this intricate hunt planned by my ridiculously talented friend Allison.

This hunt can be done easily by foot with as many teams as you like. Babies included.


We had 2 teams of 6 each #TeamRyan (wearing Ninja Turtle Masks) VS #TeamMisty in Hello Kitty masks.

The hunt was not scored by who finished first, but which team scored the most points.


-What team at the end of the race has the most masks in tact and on them.

-Did the team collect a pair of chopsticks from Hapa Sushi.

-Best team photo at Tattered Cover bookstore contest.

-Best “1985” photo collage contest.


Print out these 3 clues below and give a copy to each of your teams.

30-ONE-derful Scavenger Hunt

START: 3:00pm at Blake Street Vault (bar/ restaurant) for a happy hour kickoff drink!

CLUE #1: OK people, don’t get too sloppy!  You go here if you need to make a copy.  If you guessed it—GOOD!  In order to find the next clue, you’re gunna need to go there and look under the hood. No, you’re not looking in a car.  Where do you sit when you need to surf the web?

CLUE #3: One of our birthday babes is a lover of this store.  Are we on the same page people?  Ok, if you still haven’t figured it out the establishment has a word in it that rhymes with lover!  Take a picture inside to prove you went there.  You will be scored on best photo!

CLUE #4: Who’s thirsty? It’s time to go to a bar.  Not just any old place.  When you jet set, where do you wait? Not “gate”….it’s larger than that!  Once you guess the word, you will see it’s in the name.

Then, print out enough copies for each team of Clue #2 (below) and tape each of them under the workstation desks at the FedEx Kinko’s on 1509 Blake St, Denver, CO 80202.

30-ONE-derful Scavenger Hunt

CLUE #2 Well, aren’t you smart!  You think you’re on a __________ now, eh?  Then your next goal is to fill in the blank and collect the utensil that you use to eat this type of food.  Any location is fair play.  After doing this, look on the your info sheet to find your way to CLUE #3.

Finally, give enough copies of this final clue #5 to a bartender at Terminal Bar (Union Station).

30-ONE-derful Scavenger Hunt

END: You’re almost to the end of this race!  Meet at Wynkoop Brewery (across from Union Station) once you have collected a picture(s) of numbers that spells out “1985”. The greatest year to be born.  You’re gunna have to get creative here.

May the odds be forever in your favor!

I test the baby power mascara hack!

I took on the baby powder mascara hack on Clevver!

Basically, the hack says baby powder can magically make your eyelashes LONGER.

You first put on a coat of mascara,

…then rub your mascara wand in baby powder and add to your lashes

…and finish with another regular coat of mascara.

Watch the Insta-video above to see if it worked.

TVD Cast spills on season 8 Clevver

I went to Atlanta last week to interview the cast of The Vampire Diaries about the FINAL season 8 coming up October 21.

Profile: The Inspirational Verne Troyer

Game day! kick some badger ass #GoBlue

A photo posted by Verne Troyer (@vernetroyer) on

Earlier this month, Verne Troyer appeared in numerous news articles after receiving some brand new Yeezy Boost 350 from Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. It turns out that the 47-year-old actually has a YouTube channel where he is currently running an unboxing series entitled ‘Mail Time’. Anyone who watches his unboxing of the Yeezy Boost can clearly see Verne is a charming, down-to-earth sort of celebrity. Watch this video and skip to seven minutes to see the unboxing of the Yeezy Boost:

Verne rose to fame following his role as Mini-Me in the 1999 comedy hit Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. After his acting career took off, Troyer took on roles in other types of media, from starring in reality TV shows to running a popular YouTube channel and making celebrity appearances. He has also recently become the face of bgo Vegas as “the Boss”, a character who shares many of the evil traits of Mini-Me as he tries any trick (and fails!) to prevent players from winning their favorite slots or blackjack games.

Despite the fact many of us would consider dwarfism a disadvantage, Verne has never let it stop him. “I can play the leading man,” Verne has said in the past. “I can play the action hero, maybe in just a different way. I look at it as, you know, if you set your mind to it, you can do it.”

Born January 1, 1969 in Sturgis, Michigan, Verne was just a baby when he was diagnosed with dwarfism. Fortunately, Verne was never disheartened by his small stature and even went on to use it as an advantage throughout his youth, often hiding in lockers to jump out at passers-by. In fact, Verne and his date were voted King and Queen at their high-school prom.

Verne didn’t discover his passion for film until 1993 when he was hired as a stunt double in Baby’s Day Out (1994), where he worked alongside Joe Pantoliano, Lara Flynn Boyle and Joe Mantegna. Over the next few years, Verne continued to be hired as a stunt double and to perform in animal costumes, that is until his 1999 breakthrough in Austin Powers.

New #MailTime episode up on my YouTube channel! See what kind of weird things fans sent me!

A photo posted by Verne Troyer (@vernetroyer) on

Mini-Me, Dr Evil’s clone sidekick, was such a popular character that Verne instantly became an A-list celebrity. Verne landed parts in How The Grinch Stole Christmas with Jim Carrey, Bubble Boy alongside Jake Gyllenhaal and was even cast as Griphook the Goblin in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001).

A year after his role in Harry Potter, Verne returned to the Austin Powers franchise in Goldmember where he successfully managed to reprise his role as Mini-Me. It’s no surprise that Verne has become the Boss at bgo, considering Austin Powers went on to inspire a series of online slots which can also be found on sites including Bingoloopy and Slotaway.

It was around this time that Verne started to transition into reality television when he starred in The Surreal Life, a show that filmed Verne living with other celebrities. In 2009, Verne also appeared in the British reality show Celebrity Big Brother with rapper Coolio and LaToya Jackson and has continued to appear in numerous other reality shows ever since.

There’s no denying that Verne Troyer has managed to create a wonderful career, despite a condition which could be seen as a great obstacle. It just goes to show that if you use your differences to make yourself special, you can do anything.
