Boomerang by @lavraieviedesdanseurs We’re diving into the weekend with this BoomerangOfTheWeek from Parisians Claire and Florent ( @lavraieviedesdanseurs), taken on their sunny Spanish getaway. “Dancing and laughing is our motto!” says the graceful duo, who have been best friends since they were in ballet school together. “It didn’t take long for us to start trying fun ways to dip into the pool.” 💦 Add BoomerangOfTheWeek to your next Boomerang — yours might show up here on @instagram.

Featured photo by @luisadorr Weekend Hashtag Project: WHPadventure A sense of adventure manifests itself in many different forms. This weekend, the goal is to capture that feeling of newness, possibility and striking out on your own, like in this featured photo by Luisa Dörr ( @luisadorr). Here are a few tips to get your started: Whether you’re heading back to school or starting a job, a new life phase requires bravery — show us that spirit of new things on the horizon. Adventure can be found in far-flung places, or close to home. Take a video of your journeys this weekend, be it a long road trip to unexplored places or an excursion to where local adventurers meet up — for parkour, bouldering or an open-water swim. Your imagination can take you on an adventure. Show us what that ride looks like by revealing some tricks or ways you motivate yourself to dive headfirst into a new project. PROJECT RULES: Please add the WHPadventure hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

Video by @felipedana Brazilian photojournalist Felipe Dana’s ( @felipedana) mission is to use photography to inform. “In addition to covering major news, we can’t stop looking for stories that aren’t always in the media but that need to be shared,” he says. Born in Rio de Janeiro, Felipe’s photos often capture the harsh realities of urban violence and drug abuse, and his recent work has focused on the lives of refugees and the battle of Mosul in Iraq. “I often cover urban conflict in Rio de Janeiro, but the reality of Iraq is even more difficult,” says Felipe. “The greatest victims are the families who try to survive surrounded by war. It’s impossible not to get emotional every day working in those places. What makes me reflect the most is the ability to overcome. A lot of people have lost their homes, their families, their mothers, their children. Many are fighting for their lives in hospitals or surviving difficult conditions in refugee camps. But they continue to hope for a stop to the endless war, wishing to be able to safely return to their homes one day.” August 19 marks WorldHumanitarianDay, which pays tribute to humanitarian aid workers and supports civilians affected by crises. Watch our Instagram story to see Mosul through Felipe’s lens.

Photo by @emiibook “A day without seeing any books is a sad day for me,” says Emilie ( @emiibook), a 21-year-old French student and bibliophile. After discovering her passion for reading just a few years ago in — where else? — a bookstore, Emilie was hooked. “What I love about books is that they transport you to another world,” says Emilie. “You can live an extraordinary experience all while laying on your couch. I am never the same after reading a book.” Whenever she finishes a new tome, Emilie creates a photo inspired by the story, highlighting her favorite parts and using props like stamps, postcards, paint, plants and dolls. “I have a whole world in my head and I try to express it through my photos.” 📚

Boomerang by @toshadaa Whatever mood she’s in, model and entrepreneur Toshada Uma ( @toshadaa) can find a way to express it. “I try to look at my identity as a piece of art I’m creating — and hair, makeup and styling are my tools,” says the 18-year-old, who lives in her hometown of Mumbai, India. At 4’9” (1.4 meters) tall, Toshada is also focused on defying expectations in the fashion world. “I really hope I can create more acceptance for the body type in the industry,” she says, adding, “I have always been a confident person, but on the days I don’t feel so good, I always know that playing around with some outfits is definitely going to make me happy.” Watch our Instagram story to see some of Toshada’s favorite looks.

Photo by @amybethellice_ When Amy-Beth Ellice ( @amybethellice_) needs a bunch of lavender wisteria draped across a table or a handful of raspberries to decorate a freshly baked cake, she doesn’t have to go far. “Growing up in the countryside, I’ve always been inspired by our garden and flowers at home,” says the 19-year-old baker and party designer from Essex, England. Just a toddler when her mother introduced her to the kitchen, Amy-Beth was soon taste-testing her own recipes; from there, she published her first cookbook at just 16 years old. Often planning and throwing dinner parties for friends and family, Amy-Beth’s tips for romantic English place settings, pretty flower arrangements and rustic desserts all boil down to one thing: “Use fresh ingredients,” she says. “I just love using things from the garden. As long as I think everything looks beautiful and tastes great, that’s what I really enjoy for the table.” 🍰

Boomerang by @christyyeee Architect Christie Tan ( @christyyeee) was motivated by WHPmini to finish this tiny model of an old, local coffee shop — pictured just behind it — over the weekend. “Heritage buildings tug at my heart,” she says. “I like that this model is recognizable as the old shop, yet not exactly the same. I’ve reinterpreted the build.” ☕️

Video by @theharperwatters Harper Watters ( @theharperwatters) says he’s been “a constant mover” ever since he was a child, dancing in styles from modern to hip-hop, jazz to African dance while he was growing up in New Hampshire. After moving to Texas to pursue his dream of becoming a professional dancer, Harper, now 25 years old, has since realized that dream as a demi-soloist with the Houston Ballet. “It’s my goal to highlight the ballet world and bring it to different audiences,” says Harper, an extremely active voice in the social media dance world. “I want to show that we have our own interests and likes.” To accomplish this, Harper frequently films photos and videos he calls “The Pre Show,” showing himself and his fellow dancers preparing for performances, and creates viral videos of himself in bubblegum-pink heels — dancing, vogueing and walking on the treadmill. “These are expressions of my personality and extensions of what I love to do,” says Harper. “I want to create a space for people to be comfortable in who they are, where it’s possible to love Beyonce and RuPaul, and you can wear a pair of pink heels and still call yourself a classical ballet dancer.” 👠 Watch our Instagram story now to take a look into Harper’s ballet world.

Video by @jonburgerman Jon Burgerman ( @jonburgerman) has never not been doodling. “I doodled all the way through school, often getting in trouble for drawing with the condensation on steamed-up windows,” says the artist, who grew up in the UK and now lives in New York City. “Even from an early age, I was obsessed with drawing on everything. You could say art was a way for me to retreat into a fantasy world of my own making.” These days, Jon paints, draws, animates and even writes as a full-time job — and also unleashes his creativity on Instagram Stories, adding googly-eyed creatures into the regular world and creating them out of inanimate objects with tools like markers and eraser brushes. “I’ve unlocked a part of my brain that allows me to anthropomorphize everything,” he says. “If there’s anything I’d like people to take from my work, it’s that it’s fun to be creative. Everyone should have a go at making things and not worry about them being ‘good’ or ‘bad.’ Just playing and seeing is the main part of the fun.” 👀 Watch our Instagram story to see Jon’s doodles come to life in New York City.

Photos and Boomerang of @jasmeannnn For Jasmine Brown ( @jasmeannnn), keeping makeup simple doesn’t mean keeping it boring. “Modeling, fitness and traveling make my beauty routine stay natural 90 percent of the time,” says the 22-year-old, who is originally from Texas. “But I LOVE experimenting with makeup, new colors and new looks. New challenges I’ve encountered have been silly ones, but still so fun, like the ‘no mirror’ makeup challenge and the ‘using your opposite hand’ makeup challenge.” When she’s creating a new beauty tutorial, Jasmine turns to her followers to find out what they want to learn, and her advice for pulling off a flawless look is always the same: “Confidence! It’s the most beautiful thing ever!” 💋 Watch our Instagram story now to see Jasmine pull together one of her signature looks as she gets ready for @beautycon.
