A Review of POP TV’s Queens of Drama

Queens Of Drama is a great tv series that I anticipated watching for a very long time. I will do my best not to spoil anything in this review! In short, this show is a reality drama television program in America. One thing I like about this particular show are the stars. Some of these stars are Donna Mills, Chrystee Pharris, Vanessa Marcil,Hunter Tylo, Lindsay Hartley, and Crystal Hunt. My personal favorite person on this show is Crystal Hunt. The running time of the show is 30 minutes. I think this is a very good length for a reality show like this one. By the way, it is a very exciting and dramatic experience to watch this show. I have watched every single episode many times. I would strongly recommend you watch the first 10 episodes on season 1 first because they are extremely interesting. This is an amazing show for anyone looking to watch a reality show in their free time!

Crystal Hunt has a very sound and interesting career. Her career began when she started to appear in beauty pageants when she was just 2 years old. Her Facebook following shows Crystal Hunt is no stranger to stardom. One of her main talents is acting so she also started appearing in commercials. One of these advertisements was for NSYNC. This commercial was about the prevention of drug use. She was very young when she starred in this video, but she did an amazing job.

From there Crystal Hunt starred in many different soap operas. One of the first soap operas Crystal Hunt starred in was Guiding Light. She played a popular character named Lizzie Spaulding. With this performance, as well as a few others, she got a Daytime Emmy Nomination. Hunt also appeared in two major films. These movies are Sydney White and The Derby Stallion. Crystal went on to appear in a few more shows.

The Fabletics Company

 

Fabletics is a fast growing company that designs women’s fitness wear and accessories. It was co-founded by Kate Hudson. The company designs wear and accessories that are good and affordable. The online store also allows for good discounts and customer care service. The gears are all rounded and are designed for gym and workout, yoga, and athletic exercises. Fabletics deals with both tops and bottom types of gears as is stated in the fun page.

The company hosts both VIP and Non- VIP subscriber sections for customers. For the VIP subscribers, there is an automatic delivery and cash out every month for the gears.

During the first purchase as a VIP customer, the company greatly discounts the purchased item accordingly. In fact, the customers in the program pay 50% off regular prices. The company also rewards its VIP customers with ‘purchase points’ that enable them to earn free loyalty outfit. Customers also enjoy free shipping for all purchases they make. The company then sends subsequent handpicked outfits to its VIP customers monthly. The outfit is picked based on the customer preferences during workout or simply the style they like. The company has a system in place that excellent matches customer preferences. At the start of a VIP program, the company prompts customers to take a quiz that sets out the customers preferences.

The company has a policy that customers need to login to their accounts between the 1st and 5th of any moth. There is a “skip the month” option that the customer can opt to avoid making purchase that month. However, if the customer does not login in the first five days of the month so as to cancel the monthly order, the company charges $49.95 on the sixth day to their accounts. This is the price for one outfit in the company.

If the customer decides to close their VIP account, they can call the help number 1-844-322-5384 and press 4 to speak to customer care agent. The company offers its customers more outfit credit to continue with the company membership. With the increasing competition, the store has to ensure that customers are satisfied and retained.

Outfits that have already been shipped can be returned to the company within 30 days with a restocking fee of $5.95.

According to Racked, when the company first introduced this program, a lot of customers were complaining about it. Eventually the complaints have reduced with the company receiving less than 5 complaints per month. Customers are enjoying the monthly discounts and efficiency that the service comes with.

SKOUT Helps Out on National Potato Chip Day

SKOUT is a San Francisco based global platform spanning 180 countries. It is one of the largest global apps that helps people expand their social circle. Lately, they have partnered with the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank to produce meals for 20,000 people in the San Francisco Marin area. SKOUT has worked on several other occasions on community based projects that help the people and the community. Now, on National Potato Chip Day, SKOUT has encouraged it’s users to come together and help the community in a big way. With the ever rising expense of living, SKOUT wants it’s users to reach and and help by giving virtual gifts. With each virtual gift made, they then in return give a cash donation from the company. SKOUT’s goal is to provide a safe and easy way for people to connect with one another and also help communities whenever possible.

Christian Wiklund, co-founder and CEO, wanted to create ways to partner social media with community service. In using technology, we can reach more people and have a larger people base to potentially pull from. The more people involved the better the community service works.

SKOUT was one of the first mobile people discovery applications. It uses cell phone GPS to locate people in a general radius. It is available world-wide and can be used in 14 different languages. Founded in 2007, it was relaunched, after a slow start, again in 2009 as a dating service. Studies recognized that was what about 80% of the users were using it for. Instead of reinventing the wheel, they used the dating platform to encourage the sites use. In 2013, it launched a new travel feature that enabled users to locate and meet new people when they were traveling.
