The title “Instagrammer” is not only a reality, but something that Millennials and members of Gen-Z aspire to become. But, is it a profitable career, and if so, how?
Instagram has become one of the most powerful platforms on our mobile devices, and even helped launch many careers for influencers and Instagram celebrities.
There’s even a new trend going around Instagram called “Follower Circles” where users form a “share for share” agreement, similar to YouTube creators starring in each others’ videos, or syndication partnerships with editorial content. This is just part of the bigger picture of Instagram stars rising to stardom.

#13Things You Should #NEVER Wear While #Traveling.

Follow Venussbay on Twitter/Instagram @venussbay, Facebook.com/venussbay and Pinterest.com/venussbay. Our BB Pin: 7C7733DC.


It’s the holiday season again and a lot of people will be traveling for the Christmas break to spend time with family and friend and some will just want to have a silent getaway if ever it is silent with all the fun going on everywhere. Now hold on, just before you pack that bag and head for the Bus Park or airport, or whichever way you chose to travel, here are thirteen things you should never wear while traveling….


1. Sweatpants or jogging pants.

Can we all just come to one general conclusion on this one? Friends don't let friends travel in sweatpants. Time after time, I see people in gray heather sweatpants with their last name or some funny picture or phrase on the bum, and it makes me just want to give them an anonymous note saying, "I'm glad you're comfortable, but you look really funny."
