Behind-The-Scenes Pics From The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Photo Shoot

We are itching for The Vampire Diaries Season 6 premiere to finally hit! While we love summer time, us Roo Girls seriously can’t wait for October 2nd to come already. Season 5 of TVD ended so abruptly that waiting months and months and months for the next season to air has been torture…in the most vampiric way possible, of course! Well, the TVD gods have finally shined down on us by giving us some little tid bits to hold us over until Fall comes: a sneak peek of the Season Six promo photo shoot!

The show’s stars shared behind-the-scenes videos and pics from the photo shoot on their Instagrams that are so steamy (literally)! The most exciting news? It looks like Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is in some of the photos and videos…so we can only hope that means he’s back for Season 6! Check out the Instagram posts below and decide for yourself whether you think he’ll be back in action for the next TVD season.

Pretty awesome pictures and videos, right? You can guess what we loved the most (other than seeing the faces of the hot TVD guys, of course), Nina Dobrev’s (Elena on The Vampire Diaries) sexy black cut-out dress! The gown looked so perfect on her – we wish we could see the final photo shoot of her in the dress already! If you want her cut-out look for your next formal event, we’re all about Nika style 9041! This gown features a strapless sweetheart bodice, illusion straps and back, and side cut outs just like Nina’s dress. The gown also features elegant embellished cuff sleeves.

Did these photos and videos get you itching for more TVD already? They sure got us wanting more – we hope you’re as excited for The Vampire Diaries Season 6 as we are! Get ready for the Fall and October (and hopefully more Damon)!

Haircut Trends to try for a New You!

The school year is about to begin and the New Year is just around the corner! You are once again reunited with your classmates and getting settled into your new classes. This year, it’s your chance to amp up your style and refresh your look. Fashion is constantly changing and usually some back-to-school shopping does the trick. But, if you want to really make a drastic change to your look…try a whole new hairstyle! So many haircuts are on trend right now and we picked out a few of our favorite current ones.

The Lob – Long Bob

So many celebs have drastically changed their hair for summer of 2014. One of the biggest trends of the year was the infamous long bob. This intermediate cut is not too short but not too lengthy.  The on trend term for the Long Bob is The Lob.  The long bob has a wide range of variations from sexy waves to groovy seventies inspired bangs.  Even Beyonce went from her luscious long locks to this sassy short cut. Everyone is jumping on this hairstyle and can’t get enough of it. Who said short hair wasn’t sexy? This is great for someone who wants to try something new but not totally extreme.  Sienna Miller and Jennifer Aniston are just two of the many A-List celebs that have opted for the the long bob hairstyle.

Ombre Highlights

For the past couple of years, ombre highlights have been getting so popular…everybody tried some kind of form of ombre…even ombre dresses! When it comes to your hair, whether it’s a subtle one shade lighter ombre or a full on platinum blonde ombre…there’s endless possibilities on how extreme you can go. Adding color like pinks and reds to add some edginess to your style is a great way to more drastically change your appearance.  Check out how Ciara and Rachel Bilson rock the ombre hairstyle below.

Shaved Side Hairstyle

Another trend celebs all over this year have been rocking is the shaved side hairstyle. You’ve seen it on pop stars like Miley Cyrus…Rihanna…and Cassie. Not many people would go for this look because of the drastic side buzz cut and the maintenance, but if you want a look that will have you standing out from the crowd, then this will definitely do it!

Rihanna's shaved side hairstyleIf you want to try it but don’t want to go too extreme, here’s a temporary look Kendall Jenner rocked similar to that trend. Short, small braids is a great way to go edgy for just a few days without giving your mom a heart attack!

One Direction’s New Perfume ‘You & I!’

One Direction made the Internet go crazy yesterday (as usual) when they gave Directioners clues about a big announcement that would be coming soon. After some minor (and by minor, we mean huge) panic attacks, the 1D boys finally revealed what they had in store for their fans! If you’re reading this, we’re sure you probably already know what the big surprise ended up being…but if you don’t…it’s that 1D announced the release of their brand new perfume, called “You and I.” This is their third perfume, so we’re happy to report that there’s a brand new one available to continue to smell like our favorite rock stars.

One Direction's new perfume!

Seventeen Magazine caught up with the boys and got the scoop behind the new perfume from Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson. The two boys told Seventeen all about what went into making their latest scent…and even more…like who inspires them when things get a little nuts on the road and what makes a girl sexy.

This was Liam’s response to how they chose their latest scent:

“We went through a list of things and found what we liked and what we didn’t like – what our girlfriends would wear and stuff, and that’s kind of how we got around to it.”

-Liam Payne

And, here’s what Louis had to say on naming the perfume “You and I”

“We loved the song, and obviously it’s quite personal. [The song] is a personal thing, and it’s a personal thing with the fragrance, too – so that was the whole idea behind that. The title was actually the hardest thing for this one!”

-Louis Tomlinson

Want to read more about what Liam and Louis had to say about the perfume and other 1D thoughts and news? Check out Seventeen’s article “One Direction Dish About Their New Perfume, the Best Part of Being in a Band, and What Makes a Girl Sexy!

Paris Hilton Wears Mac Duggal In Her New Video Come Alive!

Paris Hilton’s newest single “Come Alive” finally came out on July 15, 2014, and we’re loving it! The song is so much fun, and the video is so whimsical, with Paris frolicking in an open field, hanging out on a cloud, swinging on a swing full of beautiful flowers…and there’s even a unicorn and a rainbow! Check out the video here:

We love the chorus and overall message:

“You make me smile, you make me dream, you make me feel alive. You make me dance, you make me feel, you make me come to life, you make me come alive, you make me feel alive.”

Who wouldn’t want to be with someone who made you feel that way?? And of course, Paris looks as gorgeous as ever with her diamond encrusted nails and flower filled hair. There’s one other reason we’re digging Paris’ look, though: did you catch her wearing one of our favorite dress designers in the video? She rocked Mac Duggal style 3908A in the part of the video where she’s with the unicorn!

Paris Hilton in Mac Duggal 3908A in "Come Alive" music video!

Mac Duggal 3908A is a fully sequined, high fashion gown with an open back that looked absolutely fabulous on Paris! The sequins on this gown had Paris sparkling perfectly within her video, and really helped her “come alive!” The whole scene with her in the sparkly Mac Duggal gown, with the unicorn and rainbow in the background looked like something out of a dream!

MacDuggal 3908A

While the color that Paris wore in the video is no longer available, Mac Duggal 3908A is also available in a show-stopping Peacock color, which you can see above. It’s definitely the perfect way to feel like a celebrity at Prom or your next formal event!

Do you love the Paris Hilton Come Alive music video as much as we do? Leave your comments below and let us know!

Rissy Roo’s Prom Dress Testimonial: Kiara and Kiana Chiles

Prom 2014 may be over, but we still have so many more prom testimonials to share with you from our Roo Girls! The latest is from sisters Kiara and Kiana Chiles. Their mom recently sent us a prom picture of them together both wearing their Rissy Roo’s prom dresses, and they look fabulous!

Alicia, their mom, said:

“Thank you Rissy Roo’s for the great service and the beautiful dresses!”

And, here are the two girls, looking so gorgeous:

Kiara and Kiana Chiles in their Rissy Roo's Prom Dresses

Both girls are wearing Mori Lee by Madeline Gardner dresses. Kiara (left) is wearing Sticks & Stones by Mori Lee 9199, a short strapless ombre tulle cocktail dress with beading and a corset back. Kiana (right) is wearing Sticks & Stones by Mori Lee 9253, a strapless party dress with beautiful ombre beading on the bodice, corset back, and a short tulle shirt.

Both of these dresses are such fun looks, and Kiara and Kiana rocked them so well! While these girls wore their short Mori Lee dresses to Prom, these two looks are versatile enough to also rock at Homecoming, or even for a Sweet 16 birthday party.

Thank you, Alicia, for sending us the picture! We’re glad that Kiara and Kiana had such a wonderful time at their Prom!

College Dorm Room Must Haves!

For those girls getting ready to take the giant leap off to college in the Fall, you have a million things running through your minds. From picking out your classes and trying to get to know your new roommate, to shopping and attempting to pack the 18 years worth of stuff you have accumulated in a few boxes, your head is spinning. Now is the time to put everything aside and really make sure you have the most important, absolutely cannot live without, items to take with you in order to help make your dorm room a livable space. It is better to be prepared so you can arrive in your new environment as stress free as possible! We did some searching and thought these were the top college dorm room must haves for any new girl on campus!

1. Extra Long Sheets and Bed Raisers

There is nothing worse than seeing the bed you will be sleeping in for the next year and realizing the sheets you bought were for a regular twin size bed. Be sure to get extra long (soft) sheets and probably a mattress pad if you want to sleep well. Bed raisers are a space and life saver when it comes to dorm rooms. Some raisers now come with other functionality like power and USB outlets included in one of the raisers! Brilliant!

2. Flip Flops and Caddy for the Shower

Yes, sharing a bathroom with several people can be a horrifying thought at first, especially if you were privileged enough to never have to. However, you can avoid feeling any discomfort by buying a pair of non-slip flip-flops to shower in, and a cute shower caddy to conveniently carry all of your rub-a-dub goodies so nothing gets lost or goes MIA. Don’t make the mistake of leaving your expensive products in the communal bathroom!

3. Over the Door Vanity with Mirror and Extra Hooks

We promise, this is one dorm room essential you may not have thought of, but will save you so much hassle! You will have a place to do your makeup, organize beauty supplies, hang jewelry, scarves, keys, or whatever you would like! The over-the-door feature will keep everything securely in place, while saving space and allowing your desk to be clutter free and used for what it’s supposed to…studying!

4. Mini Fridge and Personal Utensils

Having a miniature fridge and eating utensils in your dorm room is a necessity! Even though you may be eating at the dining hall when you can, it is important to keep healthy snacks on hand at all times. Having a fridge will save you money because you can go to the local market and buy bottled water, fruit, yogurt, or any of your favorites and keep them in your room instead of running to a vending machine or local pizza place whenever you get hungry. The dining hall may not be open all the time so keep this dorm room must have on your list, especially if you play sports or stick to a particular diet.

5. Organizational Dry Erase Board

With so much going on in your new college lifestyle, it can be hard to keep track of exams, papers, socials, and everyday stuff. This is why we suggest getting some type of organizational board to hang on your dorm room wall to keep track of your busy schedule. Something with a dry erase board is perfect because you can easily keep track of daily tasks like tests or meetings, as well as weekly things like parties, laundry, shopping lists etc. Having one of these is having your schedule mapped out right in front of you, so no task will be missed.

Now that you have the essentials for your dorm room, you can focus on the fun part of Fall, like shopping for your first homecoming dress for your new school! With so many parties and socials ahead, you will be busier then you can ever imagine, but you will be happy you have these dorm room essentials in your arsenal to keep you organized and stress free!
