PROM 911 !!!

18 Apr 2013

The school year is almost over, exams are coming up, we (seniors) are going to graduate, we have the senior banquet, graduation rehearsals and finally prom. Everything will happen within less than two months. I can't stop hearing my friends talking about their dresses, the shoes they are going to wear and the hair styles. But then when it comes to the few of us, sadly including me, we have no dress yet. As the days goes by I just try to avoid the issue but somehow it keeps coming back each day, increasing my preoccupation. The hardest thing is that I live in Ghana and to ship any dress here is a bit difficult. My body shape and size is petit and even if I order a dress there would be the doubt of if it will fit. I was thinking to get a taylor to make a dress for me but then it will be too complicated in choosing a color and designing it.

My advice for all the soon to be senior girls next year is that DO NOT do what I did, to wait. You will think that you'll have enough time and that you shouldn't worry about it, but in fact YOU SHOULD. Senior year would be the busiest school year and you will have so many things to take care of, and prom should be taken care of quickly because we all want to look gorgeous that night dedicated to ourselves! So plan well, chose well and be ready to have fun in that special night!

What does it mean "to be pretty"?

15 Apr 2013

The pressure of being perfect is mostly felt by all of us, regardless of gender. To be good at some sport, musical instrument, to achieve good grades. However the pressure of being perfect in the sense of looking like a model is most commonly felt between girls. The evolution of the media has grown immensely that it delivers a certain influence to some extent to the targeted audience. This influence could be taken as positive but as well it could be interpreted in a negative way. I personally feel that now a days because of the media, society has created a perfect image of how a woman should look like. And that the concept of beauty is to be skinny, tall with a flawless face. A lot of people worry for their appearance, how they dress and how they look like. Some people try so hard to look like a celebrity, a model or someone else in order to look pretty. But the actual meaning of being pretty is being yourself, your true self. It does not mean being skinny or fat, being short or tall, having curly hair or straight hair. And I would say that it's alright to sometimes try to copy the style of a celebrity ( even I do it sometimes) but as well keeping your originality, your own style.

There is no need in being sad and depress because you don't look like a model. We are who we are, and I know that to accept that statement is not an easy task because sometimes we forget. Media is everywhere and when we see that "perfect", "flawless" face we get disappointed of what we see in the mirror. But just because you don't look like a barbie does not mean you are "ugly". Instead of trying to only focusing on your outside, try to focus on your inside. You will be surprised of how gorgeous you are!!! It's alright to be you, and you is perfect, is just right. And if you are still disappointed on how you look, then try a new look! There is always something new, fun and wild to try as a new style, but keep always your head up with a BIIIG smile on your face everyday because a smile is the best accessory you can ever wear.

Ready for summer 2013 :)

My favorite magazine: VOGUE

8 Apr 2013

What it started to be a weekly magazine in 1892, it ended up being one of the most monthly famous magazines that its name would hardly be forgotten in the future. As fashion is something that keep always changing according to the years, in the different covers for vogue this constant change can be perceived. So I though it would be interesting to research some of those cover variations from back to 1910's to present days. The style and confidence of women increased tremendously over the years following the changes in fashion. We saw the evolution of style from extremely reserved to a more self-expressing style.
