Fashionista Christiana, also known as @badbrownskinnn on TikTok, shared her shopping haul of recent drops from Kim Kardashian’s Skim Soft Lounge collection.

According to the digital creator, the new fall colors from Skims are “everything.”

Much of her videos pertain to clothing buys from popular brands, outfit inspiration content, and fashion tips and tricks.

In the video, Christiana tries on five looks from the reality television star’s latest line in various sizes and colors.

ON A ROLL

I’m plus-size – I did an underwear ‘roll test’ & there was a clear winner

The first ensemble she shows viewers is the wine Soft Lounge Long Sleeve Crop Top, $52, in a size large, and the matching Soft Lounge Ruched Pant, $62, in a size 2X.

“The top is a little bit see-through under this lighting, but it’s not see-through in person,” she says.

Christiana likes the new pants style but is unsure about its fit.

“It’s a new style of pant, which I really like, but I find that it’s kinda falling off me in the waist a little bit, so I don’t know if I need to size down or what,” she states. “As you can see, my underwear is showing.”


She switches out the ruched pants for the Soft Lounge Boxers, $34, in a size 2X, which she says are her favorite boxer shorts from the Kardashian brand.

“Compared to the cotton ribbed, the cotton ribbed tends to cut into my thighs a lot, but these don’t at all. They’re super soft and stretchy,” she states.

For the second outfit, she admits that she ordered the same ruched pants and crop top from the first haul but got them in a chocolate color.

“I sized down in these pants, just to see how they would fit because this is a new style of pants like I said,” she explains.

The fashion lover adds that the XL fits better than the 2X pants she bought in the wine color.

She doesn’t waste any time and grazes over the fourth style, which is a replica of the second set of outfits but in the color chocolate as well.

Christiana is unsure if she’ll wear the slip dress out because it’s a bit see-through

The fifth and last garment she exhibits is actually a brown Slip Dress, $62, from the Fits Everybody collection that she had to drop in the haul video.

“Now, I thought I was gonna be able to wear this out and about, and I might be able to, but it’s just giving a little bit see-through, so I’m not really sure,” she states. “But I love this dress though.”

All in all, she liked the clothing items and mentions that the Soft Lounge collection has some of the best items from the entire clothing company and “is worth it.”

Many viewers took to the comment to offer some positive feedback.

“You look great in all of them! I love the outdoor collection too,” one TikTok user commented.

Tom Parker widow Kelsey’s new lover was jailed for manslaughter after bust-up with stranger over taxi

KELSEY Parker’s new lover was jailed at the Old Bailey for manslaughter.

Sean Boggans, 39, was handed four years by a judge after he knocked a stranger unconscious in a bust-up over a taxi in February 2013.

Widow Kelsey is said to have grown close to Boggans eight months after the death of her husband, The Wanted singer Tom Parker.

Boggans was by her side at a pal’s wedding in Greenwich, South London, last month after the couple were introduced through mutual friends. 

In 2013, Boggans was jailed for four years over the manslaughter of Shaun McDermott, 44.

Shaun was waiting for his girlfriend to pick him up outside a pub in Brentwood when Boggans knocked him to the ground.

A post mortem found he died as a result of head injuries.

CCTV showed Boggans, from Brentwood, Essex, walking away. 

Police found Shaun lying outside the Havering Oak Pub in Romford with a bleed on the brain on the pavement. 

Boggans, who has split from his ex partner who he has two kids with, has been on a string of dates with beauty and Instagram influencer Kelsey.


He was by her side at a pal’s wedding in Greenwich, South London, last month. 

A guest said: “It’s early days and she has a lot on her plate, but he’s shown her so much support. 

“He was with her on what was a tough day. 

“They were kissing and looked loved-up.”

Former estate agent Boggans, from Essex, is a familiar face in Brentwood, where TV’s Towie is filmed.

Pals say they met at a wedding in Greece – and instantly hit it off. 

Tom had a string of hits with boyband The Wanted before being diagnosed with brain cancer in March aged 33. 

He tragically left behind children Aurelia, three, and Bodhi, one, as well as his Kelsey.

The pair met in a West London night club in 2009 when Tom was 21 and Kelsey was 19. 

At his funeral Kelsey, who has two children with late star, said: “Marrying you was the best day of my life.”

In April she opened up to The Sun about Tom’s final moments.

She said: “I got into bed with him. We were in bed together for two hours, I just wanted that time with him.

“It was romantic even then. Yes, we were in a hospice but that was Tom as a person, it never mattered where we were.

“I said, ‘You know Tom, I will be OK, the kids will be OK. I will make sure that everything you want them to know, the things that you’ve taught me over the years, I promise to teach them it all’.

“He said, ‘I know you’re going to be OK’. He then took off his wedding ring and put it on my finger.”

On their daughter Aurelia’s third birthday, she took to Instagram to share a series of touching photos and video clips of Tom with the toddler.

She wrote alongside them: “Well, my baby girl is three and it’s been three months since we lost Tom – two big milestones.

“Look how good this looks,” she gushed. “I’m not even sucking it in and my stomach is so flat, my FUPA is sucked in.”

“So this center panel here has some compression,” she explained, referring to her midsection. “And also the arms have compression as well.”

People are just realizing the best way to clean their ovens & the cheap item you can use to prevent spills

IF the inside of your oven could use a quick pre-Thanksgiving clean out, there’s a handy way to do it.

An appliance expert shared exactly how you should be cleaning your oven, and the useful item that can prevent spills.

TikTok user Renae advised her viewers to use a DIY oven cleaning method instead of the self-clean setting

TikTok user Renae, known to her followers as Renduh, revealed the best way to clean your oven, and the setting to avoid.

The appliance expert explained that using the self-clean option on your oven can be a major fire hazard.

“Self clean can also bake in certain foods and stain your oven, [harm] small animals, cause a house fire, cause up to third degree burns [just] from touching the outside of the oven,” Renae told her followers.

The TikToker offered safer alternatives to the self-clean setting, including investing a cheap item that prevents spills.

People are realizing why their dryers are taking so long & it can cause fires

Renae recommended lining the bottom shelf of your oven with a reusable cover, available for as little as $10 from Amazon.

“Just make sure you put the liner on the lowest rack possible rather than directly on the oven itself. Don’t cover the rack entirely, that way there’s still a little bit of room for air circulation,” she advised.

The expert added: “Especially don’t use anything foil based directly on the bottom floor of the oven cavity itself because that area can get hot enough to melt aluminum in permanently.”

If your oven already has spills, you can clean it by simply steaming the stains.


“First, do a quick wipe down of the inside of your oven with a damp sponge. That way you can get anything that’s easily removed off then remove all of the racks, except for one,” Renae detailed.

She continued: “Put it in the lowest possible position, then fill a deep oven safe container with no more than to cups of distilled or filtered water only.”

The appliance pro explained that tap water can leave spots or mineral deposits in your oven.

Fill the container half-way and place it directly on the rack advised Renae.

“Bake it at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes. Once the oven has completely cooled, carefully remove the container of water and then remove it from the rack,” she said.

The TikToker concluded: “. You can wipe out the remaining food debris with a damp sponge. You can also make a paste out of baking soda and water and scrub away any more difficult food bits.”

Renae’s followers took to the comments section to share their thoughts on the cleaning advice.

“Didn’t know about the water trick or the baking soda paste so I bought a spray foam cleaner. It works but I might try your suggestions,” wrote one viewer.
