We take Hallow’s Eve very seriously here at Valley Girl, and with Halloween right around the corner, some of us have been left to scramble for costumes. Without wanting to sacrifice dedication for store-bought options, we are thanking our valley stars for our new favorite crafty find, and our Tech Tuesday pick of the week: Craftsy.
On their Apple App Store page, Crafsty describes their app as having “more than 500 online classes in photography, cake decorating, cooking, painting, drawing, quilting, knitting, sewing, embroidery, jewelry making and beyond, so you can gain the skills you need to succeed.”
So if you really want to be Sharknado or the San Francisco Giants’ adorable mascot Lou Seal but don’t feel like Martha Stewart in the craft closet, no problem!! Craftsy will walk you through dozens of how-to’s for crafting, sewing, even making decorations for that perfect last-minute Halloween party complete with mulled cider.
So break out those glue guns, bust out those sewing machines, and whip up some snazzy costumes to Trick-or-Treat the night away.
We’d love to see your favorite costumes, so be sure to Tweet or Instagram @valleygirlshow with the hashtag #valleygirlhalloween for a chance to be featured next week on our blog! And be sure to tune in every Tuesday as we launch our weekly installments of “Tech Tuesday”! Happy Halloween, and of course, keeping with the black and orange theme, Go Giants!!
The Valley Girl, Jesse Draper, teams up with Barbie at New York Fashion Week this year to dicuss wearable tech and all the latest trends. Check out this video where Jesse interviews Charlotte Ronson, Cynthia Vincent, Perez Hilton and a few others in the Barbie lounge on their Barbie inspirations!
Last week, Emma Watson, actress, model, Brown University graduate, and UN Women Global Goodwill Ambassador, spoke in front of the United Nations at the He For She event in New York last week. She beautifully and articulately explains how important feminism is, and how the need for gender equality is so important. At Valley Girl, we love a woman who isn't afraid to shake things up, and she definitely deserves our Valley Girl #newgirlcrush seal, and title of honorary Valley Girl! Watch the video and don't be afraid to speak up! #heforshe
The next event on Jesse's calendar is New York Fashion Week this week! First stop -- Barbie! The Valley Girl is very excited to be hosting the Barbie Lounge at NYFW! Barbie has been inspiring girls and fashion designers alike since 1959. From engineer to veterinarian, Barbie has dabbled in zillions of professions and with the recent launch of Entrepreneur Barbie -- for the first time she has the same career as Jesse!
Calling all New York based #ValleyGirls – please come join us for #NYFW in the Barbie Lounge THIS WEEK on September 5th and 6th! And for those of you not in the area, you can still join us in the Barbie Lounge online by keeping up with our stream!
