This lady ‘made’ the first-ever Tesla pickup truck
It actually looks nice
Simone Giertz, a YouTuber and engineer, converted her Tesla Model 3 into a fully-functioning pickup truck. People have been anticipating the upcoming futuristic electric truck from Tesla but this lady has beaten Elon Musk to the punch…technically.
Giertz has always wanted a pickup truck and she likes Tesla vehicles as well. Not being able to wait for the official introduction of Musk’s truck, she decided to take matters into her own hands. Literally.
With the help of her friends, they stripped the Tesla Model 3 of its interior, tore the rear portion of the car, and loaded a truck bed on its back. An entertaining documentation is available on her channel and it shows the planning and actual process of turning a brand new Model 3 into what they now call Truckla — derived from “truck” and “Tesla”.
It’s even complete with its own promotional video set in the countryside complete with farm animals and Giertz whipping up a lasso. Pretty entertaining stuff.
Since it’s “available nowhere”, we still have to wait for Elon’s official Tesla truck. If you ask us, though, we wouldn’t mind having a compact version like Truckla if it had the capabilities of a truck in that sleek body.
Xiaomi confirms the Mi CC series, announces the meaning behind its name
Not just a selfie-centric lineup
Following Meitu’s acquisition and Redmi’s independence, Xiaomi announced the Mi CC series. It’s a new smartphone lineup dedicated towards selfies, aesthetics, and beauty. Through the Xiaomi x Meitu AI Aesthetics Lab, the Chinese company will combine advanced camera equipment and beauty technology.
Earlier this week, there were plenty of rumors that Xiaomi will introduce the Mi CC9 and Mi CC9e. The former is said to be the company’s first Meitu-branded smartphone aimed at the female market.
Codenamed “Little Fairy”, its design caters to women with its pearl finish and pink accents. In addition, the Mi CC9 looks similar to the ASUS ZenFone 6 with its motorized flip camera design, offering a 48-megapixel main camera, ultra-wide, and telephoto lenses.
On the flip side, the Mi CC9e looks similar to the Mi 9, retaining the company’s aesthetics. It’s powered by Snapdragon 712 and packed with 4,000mAh battery capable of 18W fast charging. Selfie-wise, the phone offers a 32-megapixel front camera. Moreover, it features a triple lens design on its back, carrying a 48-megapixel main camera with ultra-wide and telephoto units, too.
However, no smartphone was actually launched and instead, the company announces the name of its new lineup and the meaning behind.
CC stands for “Colorful & Creative”, while “9” signifies the company’s ninth year anniversary. It’s developed by the Chic & Cool 90, Xiaomi’s youngest development team comprised of art students.
Xiaomi is yet to reveal the launch dates for its new smartphones.
How to wear red: 3 stylish pairings to try
Those red pieces shouldn’t be gathering dust
It’s easy to think that red is best worn sparingly or just as an accent. It is after all, such a bold, eye-catching color. We normally wear a pair of red heels to add a pop of color to an all-black ensemble, or a cute red top to go with neutral colored bottoms. We rarely buy something red for every day use, whether that’s a purse or a phone, because it just won’t go well with most of our outfits.
This is exactly why we sometimes feel like we have nothing to wear — when we build a wardrobe without considering new color pairings and when we reserve certain colors for special occasions. Here are three new combinations to try with those red pieces that don’t see the light of day (or night) as often as they should:
Red + blush pink: spring to summer
This color combination will give you an instant flirty, feminine look especially when you do it with a silk slip dress and strappy sandals. Give it a little bit more structure by throwing on a red blazer, and stick to the same tonal colors when accessorizing to look more put together. You can dress it up with taller heels, or down with flats.
Red + tan: end of summer to fall
Be a wee bit more unpredictable by pairing red with the brown pieces in your closet. A red crop top worn with tan high waist pants and mules is a good departure from the light, breezy looks you’re used to wearing during summer. When temperatures dip, add a coat in similar brown tones to stay warm. I used to be so averse to wearing this color combination but it’s now one of my favorites!
Red + red: winter to early spring
Tonal dressing is my go-to when I’m in a hurry to get ready in the morning and it doesn’t just apply to neutrals. Try wearing red on red with your thigh-high boots especially during winter when everyone else is sporting the same black coat. If you’re feeling feisty, go all-red even down to your shoes and purse and you’ll be surprised how powerful it will make you feel. Otherwise, you’re welcome to tone it down with the black staples you already have.
From these three looks alone, you can create more: turn the slip dress into a skirt by wearing the red sweater over it, or pair the crop top with the shorts and nude heels when the weather is scorching and unforgiving. The possibilities are endless! As long as you see red to be the versatile color that it actually is, you’ll never run out of looks to try, and that red phone you carry every day will never clash with your look again.
