Vocal Curation Team
Collaborative, conscious, and committed to content. We're rounding up the best that the Vocal network has to offer.
Vocal Verified—Fall & Winter Fashion
They don't call it sweater weather for nothing. Once autumn rolls around, chunky knits, flannels, and denim reign supreme. There's nothing I love more than a good pair of jeans and a fat fisherman's sweater to transition into the cold seasons, and I look forward to layering up with outerwear and accessories the second I feel the first chilly gusts of the year.
Vocal Verified—Holiday Recipes
For those of us in the United States, Thanksgiving is fast approaching; and for the rest of the world, the holiday season isn't far behind. Whether you're busy prepping a turkey feast or just getting yourself into a festive mood for the coming months, it's an exciting time of year to be a food lover.
Vocal Verified—Travel Guide: Europe
Maybe you're planning a backpacking excursion through the Swiss Alps, maybe you're honeymooning through Italy, or maybe you're pretending you have the savings and the time off from work to actually do any of these things. Regardless of whether you're setting a real itinerary or just one for your wanderlust dream trip, there's something magnetic about the blue lagoons, whitewashed walls, and cobblestone streets of Europe.
Vocal Verified—Mindfulness and Meditation
"Mindfulness" as a term has been thrown around more and more as wellness lifestyles grow ever-trendier, and it seems that it's all but lost its meaning.But we shouldn't let valuable practices get buried by meaningless new-age fads. Mindfulness as meditation means that you're checking in with yourself, recognizing your mind as a part of your body, and acknowledging your body's space in your surroundings. Awareness is the new nothingness, and accepting stress and the way you're reacting to it can be the most effective way to relieve it.
Vocal Verified—Ultimate Alt Playlist
Those of us that reveled in the pop-punk glory days of the late noughties may have matured in taste, but just barely. We've traded out LG Env's for iPhone X's, very clever AIM s/ns for professional email addresses, and those deep-set, swooshy emo bangs for naturally-balayaged practical locks. But the rebellious streak that made us scene kids immerse ourselves in studded neon belts and All Time Low lives on, and that means that radio pop and top 40 hits are probably still not really our cup of tea.
Vocal Verified—Horror Fiction
It's the most wonderful time of the year. Spooky season means crunchy leaves, chilly air, and cold, dead things that ironically warm my cold, dead heart. If you had told me as a creepypasta-loving thirteen-year-old that this would be my job someday, I'd be as skeptical as a newlywed husband living in an obviously haunted house; but here I am, the head of content curation here at Vocal, and I get the opportunity to see all the wonderfully gory stories that our creators submit year round. So, as a Halloween gift to you, I've rounded up the creepiest horror fiction submitted by our creators.
Vocal Verified—Skincare Routines
Whether it's sun damage, large pores, or hyperpigmentation, we all struggle with skin concerns. We build and revise our regimens, we nearly run Sephora out of business with all the product samples we pick up, and most importantly, we share our dermal troubles and triumphs with each other.
