Dog Claims His Own Room After Checking Into Airbnb and We Can't Stop Laughing

Did anyone else run around a vacation home, trying to pick out the best, and biggest, bed when you were little or was it just us? LOL! There's no way it was just us! We bet you've all done that at least once. And especially if you have siblings, there would always be a fight to get the best bed. It's something you're just expected to do as a kid. A dog, well, that's a different story. They normally sleep anywhere, except TikTok user @heykatiecarpenter's dog.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: The Double-Sided Eyeliner Pen That Makes Cat Eyes Easy

All products featured on Vogue are independently selected by our editors. However, when you buy something through our retail links, we may earn an affiliate commission. Among editorial pros like makeup artist Raoúl Alejandre, the Valentino Twin Eyeliner has been a best-kept secret for mesmerizing winged eyes.

TikTok Just Made Me Aware Of My Double Lip Line — Now What?

TikTok beauty trends have a unique way of making me feel both seen and exposed. I’ll explain. In the pursuit of finding niche beauty hacks that work on my specific features — especially my Black features — I’ve become extremely self-aware about all the various nuts and bolts that make me, well… me. After all, it’s through time well-spent scrolling on TikTok that I now know that the siren eyes trend works well on my #hoodedeyes, that there’s an ideal way to contour my long, #oblongface, and, in more recent scrolling activity, that I have a prominent “double lipline” — and I may have been applying my lipstick incorrectly all along.

The more Instagram copies TikTok, the more I hate using it

Instagram doesn’t know when to quit being like TikTok. Last month, the Meta-owned social media company transformed the photo-sharing platform into a TikTok hellscape, reformatting the posts from a 4:5 to 9:16 frame regardless of whether they’re images or videos. Everyone and the Kardashians slammed Instagram for redesigning the app this way, and two weeks ago, Instagram turned it back to its original form.

Is a TikTok trend responsible for more car thefts?

A new trend on social media is concerning law enforcement as nationwide reports of car thefts have increased. Officers across the United States are concerned about an increase in Hyundai and Kia thefts, with some experts blaming a now-viral TikTok stunt, encouraging people to break into these particular makes of cars. The instructional video reportedly shows how to jump-start the cars with a USB cable. A woman in Long Beach was a recent victim of the trend. She shared a home security video with CBSLA of someone backing out and driving away with her 2015 Hyundai Tucson. She suspects the thief used the instructions from the trend. "It's really hard when you work to have a paid-off car," she said. "It's not as debilitating to us because at least we have another vehicle, but I know a lot of families with single incomes and one car. It's completely devastating."Both Kia and Hyundai have responded, saying the safety of customers is a top priority and that their vehicles meet or exceed federal motor vehicle safety standards.
