Janelle Monae For VARIETY ‘POWER OF WOMEN’.

BlogNEWSUncategorized
janelle-monae-for-variety-power-of-women

Do you consider yourself a political artist?

I don’t! I think people have tried to understand me for a very long time. As a human, as an android, as somebody who has felt othered in this society — I speak up for myself, and for folks that I feel like look like me that may not have the platform. It’s just about sharing the mic.

I want people to look at me as an artist that speaks truth based off my experience, and based off what my core values are. I think having more access to rooms — and having more interviews — has just amplified that message.

I’m sure you think of yourself as both a singer and an actor. But how do you see the relationship between those things complementing each other?

I look at myself as a magician. I try to make magic with whatever I touch. That requires hard work, that requires a certain amount of focus and attention to whatever it is that I’m doing. So if I’m doing a film, I wouldn’t try to write an album at the same time. I need to have the mental headspace to stay fully committed to whatever role I agreed to do.

And I consider myself a storyteller. Music is a lot more personal, because I’m drawing from stories of who I am, and what has happened to me and where I am in the world. With film, you’re doing what you can for that character. But for the most part, you’re bringing to life a story that someone else has written. There’s not as much control. That’s good for me, but also can be nerve-racking — because I don’t get that final cut on a film or TV show. So that means if you guys love “Antebellum,” and love “Homecoming,” just know my hand was in it. But if you don’t love it, it’s not my fault!

Ha, yes!

I have respect for the directors that I’ve worked with. And you just pray and hope that what you saw is able to be edited to something that you love even more.

You do that on the music side when you work with different producers, or you’re collaborating with different artists. I feel like my calling is to do that. Whether it’s in fashion, to tell a story through my armor — there’s a story there. What it means to go into the music industry and make statements with your music and with your image and with your performances. And what it means to step on screen and take a character and make you empathize with the complexity of us as human beings. I look at myself as a polymath, as well — you know, I’m not monolithic.

 

Did you mean to come out as gender non-binary?

When I retweeted I’m nonbinary, it was “I’m not binary day,” and so I did a hashtag to show support to the community. The meme is what resonated with me, from “Steven Universe:” “I’m not a woman, I’m not a man, I’m an experience.” And I said, “F— yes! That’s me.” You know, in the same way when Prince said, “I’m not a woman/ I’m not a man/ I’m something that you’ll never understand” in “I Would Die 4 U” — that resonated with me. I feel my feminine, I feel my masculine, I feel energy that I can’t really explain.

I’m exploring, you know? I’m so open to what the universe is teaching me, and teaching all of us about gender. I definitely don’t live my life in a binary way. I’ve always pushed, as you can see from the way that I dress to the things that I’ve said since the beginning of my career. I have fought against gender norms, and what it means to be a woman and what it means to be a man. I’m a fucking android.

But I will say this: I’m so happy that people are learning more about what it means to be gender non-conforming, and what it means to be non-binary.

I think the last time I looked at your Wikipedia page was before the photoshoot and video interview last month. I looked at it today, and someone has changed all your pronouns to “they.” [Note: Monae’s Wikipedia page now alternates between “they” and “she.”]

Really?

Yes!

That was not me. I think people can call me whatever it is they want to call me. I know who I am. I know my journey. And I don’t have to declare anything.

Tell me about expressing yourself through fashion. Were you always a kid who dressed a certain way, or did that come later?

Once I got to high school, that’s when I started to have my own money, because I started working. I was working at Ponderosa Steakhouse, I was a waitress. I was a maid, I was babysitting, and worked at Foot Locker. I couldn’t afford a lot of stuff, but I think it went from lots of menswear — whatever you would consider sports menswear: the tennis shoes, baggy clothes.

Then I got into vintage shopping. I was very artsy. I was an international thespian, I would compete in monologue competitions. I was also in the acapella choir, was doing talent shows — this is in high school. So I was a busy arts student, expressing myself through art, and I started to really use fashion as a way to express that.

I think my uniform — that’s when that came. As an homage to the working class, and my working class parents. And honestly, I just couldn’t afford to keep up when I started to sing and perform, and I went to a performing arts school in New York, and I went to Atlanta and I was living in a boarding house, I did not have time to find a new costume every single show. So it was like, what is my uniform, what is my outfit going to be? What is something that I always feel comfortable in? It’s been black and white. It’s been the androgynous look that matched my energy.

 

Are you still Atlanta-based?

Half. I’m looking for a place here, but it’s so hard, because I’m looking for something that has a space where I can have a studio and keep my business separate from my living space. So I haven’t really been able to find one within the price range. I’m making plans to be bicoastal. We have a film and TV company, Wondaland Pictures.

Your business is in Atlanta, at least for now?

My music business is in Atlanta, our record label is in Atlanta — but our film company is here in L.A. We have a first-look deal with Universal, with Donna Langley. We’ll have Wondaland also doing the music for a lot of the films, and then we’ll be producing films. So we’re moving in that space now.

Have you directed?

I have pretty much directed along with Chuck Lightning, who was one of my creative directors at Wondaland on this last project. But I do want to do direct — I think that I’m meant to be a director.

I think so, too.

Let me tell you, I watch all my takes when I do film and TV. And I’m really fast. Because I am very objective about my acting. That’s what makes me realize that I think that I’m meant to direct. Because I am, in addition to just acting and staying in the moment, looking at it from a director’s lens.

This is a dumb question. When you were doing “Moonlight,” did you know it was going to be the most beautiful and best movie ever? Is that something that one is aware of at the time?

It resonated with me. That’s how I’ve always worked. If the song doesn’t touch my spirit, I’m not gonna sing it. If the lyrics don’t make me want to dance, I’m not going to record them. So when I read that script, I cried. Instantly. It wasn’t anything but the spirit of that script, and me saying, “This is important. This is important for culture.” This is important for little black boys, girls, non-binary — little humans all around the world to see this film. For us to be represented in this way in the film industry, regardless of how big it gets or how small it remains, I want to be a part of it.

NASCAR Legends Supports George Floyd Protests

HAMPTON, GEORGIA – JUNE 07: Bubba Wallace, driver of the #43 McDonald’s Chevrolet, wears a “I Can’t Breath – Black Lives Matter” T-shirt under his fire suit in solidarity with protesters around the world taking to the streets after the death of George Floyd on May 25 while in the custody of Minneapolis, Minnesota police, stands during the national anthem prior to the NASCAR Cup Series Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway on June 07, 2020 in Hampton, Georgia.

NASCAR drivers have joined the growing list of athletes and sports leagues throwing their support behind the nationwide protests against police brutality.

Bubba Wallace wore a black T-shirt that said “Black Lives Matter” and “I can’t breathe” during Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Folds of Honor Quiktrip 500.
Wallace also tweeted a NASCAR-sponsored video of him and fellow drivers discussing how they will advocate for change to fight racism and inspire change.
“We will listen and learn! #BlackLivesMatters,” Wallace tweeted.

Wallace’s statements and tweets come as protests gather across the US and around the globe to call for police reform, especially when it comes to relations with black and brown communities. The protests were sparked by the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died after a Minneapolis police officer placed his knee on Floyd’s neck for over eight minutes.
Other NASCAR drivers also spoke up Sunday. The legendary Jeff Gordon made a powerful statement during Sunday’s broadcast saying he and Wallace’s professional and personal journeys are different.
“I’ll never know what it’s like to walk in Bubba’s shoes or the shoes of anyone that’s experienced racism. I do know I can be better; we can do better to create positive change,” Gordon said. “We need to step up now more than we ever have in the past. We are listening. We are learning. We are ready for change.”
Daniel Suárez posted the NASCAR video discussing racism in solidarity with Wallace.
“We stand with you. Not being racist is not enough, we need to be anti-racist and make a REAL change! #blacklivesmatter,” his tweet read.

Ben and Jerry’s Calls For The End Of ‘ White Supremacy

Uncategorized
ben-and-jerrys-calls-for-the-end-of-white-supremacy

Ben and Jerry’s Calls For The End Of ‘ White Supremacy The murder of George Floyd was the result of inhumane police brutality that is perpetuated by a culture of white supremacy.

All of us at Ben & Jerry’s are outraged about the murder of another Black person by Minneapolis police officers last week and the continued violent response by police against protestors. We have to speak out. We have to stand together with the victims of murder, marginalization, and repression because of their skin color, and with those who seek justice through protests across our country. We have to say his name: George Floyd.

George Floyd was a son, a brother, a father, and a friend. The police officer who put his knee on George Floyd’s neck and the police officers who stood by and watched didn’t just murder George Floyd, they stole him. They stole him from his family and his friends, his church and his community, and from his own future.

The murder of George Floyd was the result of inhumane police brutality that is perpetuated by a culture of white supremacy. What happened to George Floyd was not the result of a bad apple; it was the predictable consequence of a racist and prejudiced system and culture that has treated Black bodies as the enemy from the beginning. What happened to George Floyd in Minneapolis is the fruit borne of toxic seeds planted on the shores of our country in Jamestown in 1619, when the first enslaved men and women arrived on this continent. Floyd is the latest in a long list of names that stretches back to that time and that shore. Some of those names we know — Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Oscar Grant, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Emmett Till, Martin Luther King, Jr. — most we don’t.

The officers who murdered George Floyd, who stole him from those who loved him, must be brought to justice. At the same time, we must embark on the more complicated work of delivering justice for all the victims of state sponsored violence and racism.

Four years ago, we publicly stated our support for the Black Lives Matter movement. Today, we want to be even more clear about the urgent need to take concrete steps to dismantle white supremacy in all its forms. To do that, we are calling for four things:

First, we call upon President Trump, elected officials, and political parties to commit our nation to a formal process of healing and reconciliation. Instead of calling for the use of aggressive tactics on protestors, the President must take the first step by disavowing white supremacists and nationalist groups that overtly support him, and by not using his Twitter feed to promote and normalize their ideas and agendas. The world is watching America’s response.

Second, we call upon the Congress to pass H.R. 40, legislation that would create a commission to study the effects of slavery and discrimination from 1619 to the present and recommend appropriate remedies. We cannot move forward together as a nation until we begin to grapple with the sins of our past. Slavery, Jim Crow, and segregation were systems of legalized and monetized white supremacy for which generations of Black and Brown people paid an immeasurable price. That cost must be acknowledged and the privilege that accrued to some at the expense of others must be reckoned with and redressed.

Third, we support Floyd’s family’s call to create a national task force that would draft bipartisan legislation aimed at ending racial violence and increasing police accountability. We can’t continue to fund a criminal justice system that perpetuates mass incarceration while at the same time threatens the lives of a whole segment of the population.

And finally, we call on the Department of Justice to reinvigorate its Civil Rights Division as a staunch defender of the rights of Black and Brown people. The DOJ must also reinstate policies rolled back under the Trump Administration, such as consent decrees to curb police abuses.

Unless and until white America is willing to collectively acknowledge its privilege, take responsibility for its past and the impact it has on the present, and commit to creating a future steeped in justice, the list of names that George Floyd has been added to will never end. We have to use this moment to accelerate our nation’s long journey towards justice and a more perfect union.

The Rock Is Stunned ” Following George Floyd’s Death

View this post on Instagram

Past few days I’ve been stunned trying make sense of George Floyd’s death. The video. The plea for breath. The callous response. The racism. The killing. This is our ongoing disease. I’ve had cops in my family. Good men. And there’s a cop code, granting you the authority to use force if your life is in danger. But when a man is handcuffed, on the ground, no longer a threat, with your brothers in arms standing around watching and he struggles to say, “please I can’t breathe” when your knee is on his neck.. not his back, but his neck – cutting off his air. Cop code must become moral code. Ethics code. HUMANITY code. Knowing that if you don’t ease up, then that man is going to die. So when you decide to not ease up, your intention is to kill. And that’s what this was. George Floyd, said “officer I can’t breathe” as he struggled for air. He said these words a total of 15 times. Not once. Not twice. 15 times. These officers will be charged, I’m positive of that. Held accountable. But then where’s the greater accountability? The leadership to healing. More importantly, the leadership to EQUALITY. We ultimately win when we can normalize equality. I’m so sorry to the Floyd family. My heart breaks for you. Let the process begin now. #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd #NormalizeEquality

How to Create And Wear Glossy Eyelids

BEAUTYBEAUTY TRENDSBlogUncategorized
how-to-create-and-wear-glossy-eyelids

A popular makeup trend on the fashion runways are glossy eyelids here are tips on how to create the look .

Part1

Prepping the Lids

  1. Image titled Create Glossy Eyelids Step 1
    1

    Apply a light shadow. Before you add any gloss, you can create a beautiful effect by first applying a soft, shimmery glow to your lids. Anything with soft sheen looks wonderful, such as a pearl-colored shadow or highlight. You can apply it softly with a shadow brush, or simply dab a bit on with your fingertips.

    • While any kind of shadow works, a liquid, gel, or cream shadow will give your eyes a wetter, glossier look.
  2. Image titled Create Glossy Eyelids Step 2
    2

    Line the top lash line. A black liquid liner is perfect for this. By using liquid eyeliner, you can create a thin, precise line that will define your lashes. It’s important to keep this line thin and as close to your lashes as possible, so that you reduce potential smudging once you add the gloss. If you want, you can certainly add a wing.[3]

    • This is the only stark, precise line you’ll create. You want to line your eye simply to emphasize your lashes and make them look fuller and darker. You’ll be covering this line later, though, so it’s okay if it’s not perfect. It’s simply the foundation.
  3. Image titled Create Glossy Eyelids Step 3
    3

    Dab the eyeliner with a pencil liner. Once you’ve created that original precise line, you can loosen up. Now, your makeup application will be a bit messier and more sultry. Using a kohl pencil, go back over the liquid eyeliner. You don’t need to create a perfect line – in fact, you don’t want to. The kohl pencil will be smudged and blended with the gloss, so just dab it along your lash line however you want.

    • Once you add the gloss, you can always go back in and add more eyeliner as you see fit.
Part2

Applying the Gloss

  1. Image titled Create Glossy Eyelids Step 4
    1
    Add some shine. There are a few different products you can choose from to add a bit of shine and start blending your eyeliner. Note that this isn’t the actual gloss, but will add a bit of luster to get you started. For this, you want to use a wax-based product that isn’t overly sticky. A wax-based product like MAC’s Mixing Medium Shine is ideal. If you don’t want to shell out the cash for a designer product, you can use some waxy lip balm to create the same effect.
    • If you’re trying this look out for the first time, it might be wise to save the cash and try creating it with cheaper products. If you love the look and want to wear it often, however, it’s worth investing in the longer-lasting products that are created specifically for the eyes.
  2. Image titled Create Glossy Eyelids Step 5
    2

    Use the product to soften and blend the eyeliner. Whether you’re using the MAC product or a bit of balm, you’ll apply it the same way. Get a bit of the product on your fingertip and press it onto your eyelid. Using a light hand, carefully use the product to smudge out the kohl eyeliner you previously applied. Gently pull the eyeliner up the lid to create a softer, smokier effect.

    • If you want your lash line to be darkest, you can certainly add a bit more eyeliner to your lash line after you’ve smudged it out a bit. Remember, though, that this look really isn’t about precision or stark lines.
  3. Image titled Create Glossy Eyelids Step 6
    3
    Finish with your gloss. Finally, after you’ve blended your eyeliner and laid a shiny foundation, it’s time to apply your gloss. There are a few different eye glosses on the market, like MAC Eye Gloss, NYX Lid Lacquer, MAKE Face Gloss, and Glossier Balm Dotcom. You can find a variety of glosses online or at your local beauty supply store. Use a flat brush or your finger to apply the gloss over your entire lid. Start in the middle and carefully sweep it outwards.
    • If you’re worried about your eyelids feeling sticky, avoid applying any product to the crease. Smooth the product to your lid below the crease and a bit above the crease, but don’t put any directly in it!
    • If you don’t want to buy a product meant specifically for your eye, you can always use a clear lip gloss or Vaseline-type product instead
Part3

Completing the Look

  1. Image titled Create Glossy Eyelids Step 7
    1
    Apply a bit of highlight to your face. The defining characteristics of this look are dewy and glowing. By adding a bit of highlight to a few key places on your face, you’ll up the glow factor even more. Dust a bit right below your eyebrows, along your brow bone. Then, sweep a bit down the bridge of your nose, on the highest point of your cheekbones, and on your cupid’s bow.
  2. Image titled Create Glossy Eyelids Step 8
    2
    Use a transparent or nude lip product. Glossy eyelids are perfect for a fresh-faced, semi-natural look. That being said, they are best paired with a soft, more natural lip color. You can simply roll on a bit of lip balm to keep your lips looking plump and moisturized, or add a bit of nude lipstick if you prefer wearing a heavier product. Whatever you choose to do, let your glossy lids be the star of the show.
  3. Image titled Create Glossy Eyelids Step 9
    3
    Fill in your eyebrows. You don’t need crisp, perfectly manicured brows for this look. In fact, natural brows pair perfectly with this effortless, light look. However, natural brows can always be improved upon! Using an eyebrow pencil, powder, or pomade, lightly fill in any areas where your brows are sparse or thin. Use a spoolie to brush your brows out so that everything looks natural and soft.
  4. Image titled Create Glossy Eyelids Step 10
    4
    Bring your gloss with you for touch-ups. Because this is a glossy, wetter look, you’re bound to have some inevitable movement. Most of the natural smudging is great – you don’t want your eyeliner to be perfectly clean and crisp. However, you also don’t want any smudges on your cheek or near your temple! Bring a little mirror and some extra gloss with you when you’re heading out the door. That way, you can fix any wayward smudges and reapply gloss to keep your lids shimmering all day and night.

 Nba superstar LeBron James donated meals to more than 1,300 people from his I Promise school.

Per USA Today‘s Jeff Zillgitt, James and the LeBron James Family Foundation enlisted the help of the Akron Family Restaurant to deliver meals to 340 families from the school:

“Akron Family Restaurant co-owner Nick Corpas said he got a call last week and was excited to help. He started making his orders almost immediately and began prepping for the meals on Monday. He and restaurant employees arrived at the restaurant at 6 a.m. ET Tuesday to cook and assemble the meals.

“He said they finished around 4 p.m., and LJFF volunteers parked cars outside the restaurant. Adhering to social distancing recommendations, the volunteers remained in their cars while workers and volunteers placed the food in trunks.

“Each serving tray provided food for four to five people—enough for more than 1,300 people to have dinner.”

Once volunteers had the meals placed in their cars, they would call ahead to let families know they were on their way.

Queen & Slim actress Jodie Turner-Smith  along with  her husband, Little Fires Everywhere actor Joshua Jackson, are parents to a newborn baby girl. In a statement obtained by People, the couple’s reps confirmed the happy news saying, “both mother and baby are happy and healthy.” Turner-Smith and Jackson reportedly first met at Usher’s 40th birthday party in October 2018. In December 2019, news broke that the couple officially became husband and wife.

She explains why she made the choice to keep her relationship private in the early stages. “There was this wave of people who were upset that I was possibly married to a white man,” she said. “The horrific things that people were saying, it makes you. … I’m learning there are certain things I have to really keep for myself.” She revealed that she and her husband were considering raising their daughter in Canada, Jackson’s home country.

 

The couple has also been candid about the stress and anxiety that come with being pregnant during the coronavirus pandemic. “We’re just trying to figure out on a moment to moment basis how to get through this with our sanity,” Jackson revealed on a Live With Kelly appearance, adding, “We’re just figuring out how to deal with interacting with doctors and hospitals right now.”

Remembering The Legacy Of Prince Who died 4 Years Ago Today

BlogNEWSUncategorized

It’s been  four  years since musician and pop icon Prince Rogers Nelson died of an accidental fentanyl overdose at Paisley Park, his Chanhassen home and recording studio. Singer, actor, musician and filmmaker Prince passed away on April 21, 2016. The multi-instrumentalist and fashion icon sold over 100 million records and fans are reflecting on their most-loved songs from his stellar career spanning over four decades.

MUSIC EDUCATION

Eric Songer grew up a huge pop music enthusiast in the 1980s. “I was an avid chart watcher and fan of the music scene,” Songer said.

His love of music led him to a career teaching at Chaska Middle School West, where he also offers an elective called “Music & the Image.”

With his encyclopedic knowledge of 1980s music, Songer can tell you that Prince’s “Purple Rain” is one of the most popular albums of all time and the third biggest selling soundtrack album ever. He’ll tell you Billboard ranks Prince as the second biggest singles artist of the 1980s, only slightly behind Michael Jackson.

Still, Songer admitted, “Prince was not one of my favorite artists to be honest with you, but I developed a huge respect for him in a very volatile industry. He had staying power. He was extremely creative in both his music and his image. He was a game changer.”

Songer’s students know who Prince is, and they occasionally perform his songs.

“I always found it interesting that there was this contradictory part of his personality — he came across as very cocky and confident in his performances, but he would write songs under fake names (like ‘Manic Monday’ by the Bangles) and donate money to our district’s music program anonymously.”

Songer reflected on Prince’s impact as a pop fan and as a music teacher.

“One Prince story that resonated with me as a child and continues to as a performer and teacher is that Prince learned to play many instruments in middle school and high school,” Songer said. “He would get to school early to practice. His drive and passion for music is something that I emphasize to my middle school students, since a lot of times, middle school students have a passion for music, but they lack the drive to practice. Prince is an example of someone who learned all of this at an early age and that it is possible.”

“Prince will continue to be remembered and have a positive impact in this community,” Songer said.

 

Adore -Kiss -Raspberry Beret -Scandalous -Purple Rain -I wanna be Your Lover -Little Red Corvette -I Would Die for You -1999 -Do Me Baby -When Doves Cry Make . are some of the songs from the  legendary “The Artist Formerly Known as Prince”

 

Fans celebrated his legacy below by naming their favorite Prince songs

Uncategorized

Drake took to Instagram early Monday morning with an emotional post that included never-before-seen pics of 2-year-old Adonis and his son’s mother, Sophie Brussaux.   Drake took some time and waited to confirm that Adonis was his  soon , after Pusha T revealed the news in “The Story of Adidon.”

“To be honest with you, I did a DNA test for my son and it came back to us and it said the DNA test got ruined in transit and they couldn’t be 100 percent sure that that was my son or not,” the rapper, 33, said on the Wednesday, December 25, episode of the “Rap Radar” podcast. “I was in a really weird pending situation where I didn’t want to go tell the world that that was my son and it wasn’t.”

What is most important for you right now is to connect to your own inner light. This will create the biggest opening of all. Trust that you have all of the power within to make this happen, and in order to do that connect to the people and things that bring you a lot of joy. When the mind starts to move into overthinking or fear, shift your attention right away to something bright. It doesn’t matter what has happened in the past or what is happening around us now, you can always make the choice to break free of the wheel of suffering and panic and open up to your own light. We are powerful manifestors , so once you make the choice in the moment to shift your awareness to something good, it will show you in your reality. Be conscious, especially right now of fears coming in from others, and recognize that not everything should be held by you. Laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release. Let go of any judgment you may have around that. Remember that you are never alone, and if you need to be reminded of that ask for support and it will show up. Everything comes down to intention, and even though there are conflicting energies circling around us you must KNOW…It will rebuild. But in order for that to happen, you have to do exactly that. Trust. You have the biggest heart and that is your greatest gift. It’s impossible to always control your surroundings, but when you shift the focus to how you want to feel, everything will conspire to assist you. I love and miss my beautiful family and friends and I can’t wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite. Until then please keep your lights on. 🤍

Camping in Style: Camping Essentials You Need To Look Good & Be Comfortable When Camping

Camping in Style: The camping essentials you need to look good and be comfortable when camping

Have you heard of glamping? It is glamorous camping for people who don’t want to camp the old-fashioned way. Camping is truly a national pastime for individuals from all professions. It combines some of their favorite activities: travel, adventure, sight-seeing, fitness and 4WD adventures.

Yet, camping doesn’t have to be cold, dirty and uncomfortable by any means. This is the new age of glamping where the lines between camping and comfort are blurred, owing to luxurious camping and hiking solutions.

So, here’s how you can glamp in 2020:

Immerse in nature with luxurious hammocks:

After all the hiking, walking and adventure you have earned your right to chill and nothing beats the comfort of a luxurious and stylish hammock. If you are picturing the good, old hammocks here then you are in for a surprise. Modern, innovative hammocks are lightweight, durable and able to handle the load capacity of up to 200kgs. 

The fabric is soft and breathable and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes too. They are available in both one- and two-person hammocks and hammock tents. It is important to pick something that is not only stylish but safe and sturdy to hold you and your stash inside.  While single hammocks do just fine, double hammocks provide a greater weight limit and more room.

Tents 

The word tents is an understatement to describe these ultra-luxurious residences in the outdoors.  They have it all. Modern tents have redefined luxury and you have a range of amenities from futuristic hanging pods to tree hammocks. From futuristic hanging pods to tree hammocks, these nine tents will have you thinking about camping in a whole new way.

The new-age tents are spacious and you don’t necessarily need tent poles. You have the option of Air Tents that have inflatable beams. So easy to put together and take down. 

And if you don’t know where to start, then here’s a list of the best brands for camping tents. 

Camping Cots 

A comfortable camping cot is as necessary as the trend itself. Not only does it provide the comfort inside the camp, but when you want to enjoy the peace and quiet outside. 

However, many people wake up stiff when the cot is not comfortable. So pick a cot that has extra support and stash pockets. Things to look for include a support pad that is plush, quick-drying and water resistant. You could also check for adjustable backs and change the incline settings to your preference. This way, you can transform a simple cot into a lounge chair.

If you have the habit of tossing and turning when you sleep, then you might want to look for an XXL cot. 

Kitchen accessories

If you like to cook in the wilderness, then you need the right kitchen accessories to set up your camping kitchen. First and foremost is the cooking stove. You will be surprised at the sheer variety and innovation in cooking stoves available for camping. The other important accessory is a propane tank. Carry a large, reserve propane tank for your camp stove so that you don’t have to change multiple tanks. Other cutting-edge tools include modern Dutch ovens, camping knives, fancy tableware, metal tongs, seasoning etc.

Conclusion

You don’t have to rough it out in the wild. You can have fun, adventure, fitness and comfort all in the new age of glamping.  Ensure you buy high-quality, durable gear and check reviews online before you make the purchase.
