Dua Lipa Minneapolis

On Sunday night, Dua Lipa made her stop in Minneapolis on her "The Self-Titled Tour" and it was quite the night.

The night started off with a recording of encouraging words from Dua telling the crowd to be who they are and to love who you are and to live your very best life, tonight with her and everyone else in the venue. Then, as she appeared on stage, Dua yelled, "Are you ready to party tonight Minneapolis?!" and from the positive response of the jammed packed crowd, it was clear that they were.

Throughout the first few songs, including, "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)", "Dreams / No Lie", "My Love", and "Lost in Your Love" the crowd was drawn into the music and entertaining show that Dua puts on. With her incredible vocals, empowering lyrics, crazy amount of energy an passion, amazing dancers (herself included), and colorful lighting, Dua Lipa sure knows how to help you have one fun night with your best friends.

Dua came out with a crazy amount of energy and confidence from the start and it reflected right back onto the crowd. From the moment she appeared on stage you could just tell that she loves what she does and definitely belongs up on stage with her natural stage presence.

Dua has a super fun sense of style and is usually seen wearing some amazing outfits on stage at her shows, and Minneapolis was no exception. She rocked a light pink sheer long sleeve top and pink lace beaded stretch flares from Dyspnea. She also added some sneakers and a rainbow cupcake topper ring to the outfit.

The fifth song of the night was "High" which Dua wrote with 18-year-old producer, Whethan. It is a catchy, dark, and soulful track which earned a place on the Fifty Shades Freed movie earlier this year. The track was clearly a crowd favorite as screams erupted as the opening notes began. At the end, the track transitioned into "Garden" and then before playing "Last Dance" Dua stated, "This next track showed me that you should never let go of the people that you love. I never thought that I'd be able to share this song with the amount of people that I have and it just means a lot to me."

Dua brought the party mood up even more with "Be the One." She encouraged the crowd by saying, "I am so so happy to be here with you all tonight. Thanks for being so much fun. I'm going to need all of you in this building to go absolutely fu*king mental for this next song!" and the crowd sure went crazy. As soon as the song began everyone started dancing, putting their hands in the air, and screaming the lyrics back to her.

The song was a definite highlight as halfway through Dua screamed, "Minneapolis, you're the one!" She grabbed a pride flag from a fan in the crowd and wore it like a cape for the rest of the song. Dua gave multiple shout outs throughout the show to the Twin Cities Pride Weekend which was taking place.

Next, Dua mentioned that it was time to bring it down a bit. She moved into her ballads including, "Thinking 'Bout You" and "New Love." She then started to bring the mood back up with "Genesis" and her current hit with Calvin Harris, "One Kiss." The track has been climbing the charts like crazy and was definitely a popular song among the thousands in the crowd.

"Scared To Be Lonely" and "Homesick" followed. "Homesick" has been the song of Dua's that really pulls on my heart strings. I was definitely the girl in the back of the arena bawling her eyes out as the piano came out and Dua performed the song. It just felt so surreal to hear it live. "No Goodbyes" followed and it was such a beautiful performance vocally. The lyrics of that song can really get you, especially when heard live.

"Hotter Than Hell" and "Begging" came just before the encore and they got the crowd hyped up even more...if that was even possible. Hands were in the air, people were jumping, and just about everyone was screaming along to the lyrics.


Corbyn Jenkins (IG: @CorbynJenkins)


Soon after, Dua appeared back on stage for the encore where she performed the two tracks most had been waiting to hear all night long: "IDGAF" and "New Rules." As "IDGAF" began, a "warning" appeared on the screen which read:

"You are about to experience some explicit language and behavior. This is a song for all the fu*kboys who have done you wrong. If you would like to participate in the next activity put your middle fingers up. Thank you."

And as you can guess, many middle fingers flew up to the air as the song began. Many iPhones also shot up to record the moment Dua performed her popular single.

"New Rules" closed out the night and was the main highlight as the track is Dua's most popular song with over 860 million streams on Spotify. Just about everyone in the venue had their hands up in the air and was dancing and singing along to the words of Dua's hit with ear-to-ear smiles were plastered on their faces.

Pop singer-songwriter, Dua Lipa sure knows how to put on one heck of a party and she definitely did not disappoint in Minneapolis.

I've always been interested in any product that can get me the Jennifer Lopez-esque natural glow. I'm Indian and have medium-toned skin, so getting darker was never really the goal. Rather, I've always looked for a product that would even out my skin tone and cellulite, basically making my legs look Photoshopped.

Now more than ever we're craving that healthy, tan glow most of us only get after spending a week poolside with margarita in hand. We may not be spending an SPF-soaked summer hitting on our local lifeguards. But when we're going on socially-distanced walks outside, taking viral-worthy selfies, or just want to test out the best self-tanners for when you do finally get to show off all the bikinis you binge-purchased through your quarantine boredom, these are the best to ways to glow up, no matter your shade of skin, whether you have uber-sensitive eczema-ridden skin, or just want J-Lo glow, smooth legs.

Quarantine Checkup Week 10: It's Officially Summer, Even In Quarantine

An Odyssey panel discussion about all things quarantine.

Thanks to coronavirus (COVID-19), most of the United States has gone into its own version of quarantine. While no one loves this new way of life we're adjusting to, it's the necessity that will eventually help us fling open our front doors and frolic freely once again!

Premature thinking? Maybe. But while we're in the midst of this quarantine time, we're chatting about the most terrifying, the funniest, and the weirdest thing that quarantine has forced us into recently.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.
