Skinny dosnt mean better.

Hello Baby Bubba :)

This blog post is going to be about news, and also I am going to try to add in a bit of self esteem help. Im not the best person to be giving advice on this kind of stuff, but whatever. Im gonna try!

Okay, so it has recently been proven that the sales of clothing that is advertized by ‘size zero women’ or stareotipical models, have been dropping. People have been paying allot more attention to the kinds of ads with the women that are more like eveyone else. This is really bringing to attention how the skinny little models make girls feel.

“We found that the way the picture of the perfectly shaped model was used was very important in determining a positive or negative effect on women’s self-perception,” Ansons told the Daily Mail.

When teen girls… encluding myself, see these beautiful women who look like one of their legs are the size of one of my arms, it makes us feel bad about ourselves. We feel like you have to be skinny to be beautiful. This is finally being brought to people’s attention that this is a really big deal! Girls my age, are starving theirselves to look like the ladies in the catalogs. Its desgusting really.

Even though Im saying that Skinny dosnt always mean beautiful; they are still beautiful aswell.

So people are starting to add more ‘normal’ sized women, and teens into the calalogs, and also on the catwalk. This is really bumping up the sales, and the self esteem. I really think that this is amazing how people can make that big of an impact just by looking at a magazine. But over all, I am glad that they are finally thinking ab out this kind of stuff, and working hard to fix it.

Its stareotipical that skinny women are more beautiful. This is a big load of nonsense. You are beautiful no matter what size you are.. beauty is determined by how you act, and what is within you.

Decisions.

Sup sup buttercup?

So, recently I have made some pretty big decisions. Some of them you might think, are not very important, some of them might be huge! But to me, they are all major decisions, that I am very proud of.

One of the most important ones that I had made recently, is to get allot of my hair chopped off! It sounds stupid, but to me it was a horrifying experience. See, I was always the one with crazy long, luscious hair, and i was really getting sick of it. So, I had make an appointment to get a trim off on my hair. Like it was just a trim… no biggy. Buut than it got to me… I had always had the exact same hair, for so many years, and I need a drastic change… So i ended up getting about 8 inches cut off! It used to be half way down my core, and now it is just by my shoulders! I had also got bangs! At first I was crying my eyes out. I was terrified, I thought that I looked like a 3 year old! But over time, I had really gotten to live with it! I actually love it now! Its so easy to play with! It can curl, straighten, and crimp so easily! But I really think that one of the best things that came out of this decision, is that I am sending my hair away to Cancer… once again. It makes me feel good, that I am going to be helping other people feel better.. just with a little thing like this.

Another thing that I have decided to bring into my life was Curling! Its not as easy as it looks, I can tell you that! Its allot more than throwing a rock, and sweeping some ice! It involves allot of core work, and it exercises your arms, and shoulders allot! I had joined only 4 weeks before curling zones, and so I had to work my but off at practice to learn everything that I possibly could! I was actually doing really well… until I slipped. Its sort of hard to remember how to fall when you are falling. You are really supposed to just land on your back, and cover your head. But of course i did the completely wrong thing,  and landed right on my wrist and sprained it. this was like 1 week from zones too! I was so scared that I was going to have to sit out… but I decided not to let myself. I was committed to my team, and my school, so I had to suck it up, and work through the pain. I was really proud of myself. I still am! We ended up getting second at Zones… out of two teams. But whatever! Wr had so much fun I cant even explain!

Overall What I am trying to get through is that sometimes the decisions that you make aren’t just for you, they are for other people too. So dont be selfish, think of other people when you are in charge of making a big, or little decision. It can really make a big difference in how you see yourself and how others see you.

The Craze: Comfy Jumpers!!

For those of you who dont know what a jumper is, It is an other name for a sweater. Just a pull over, not a hoodie or a bunny hug. Just a nice, comfy, long sleeved, warm, sweater. Jumpers are very popular right now, even though many people probably dont think that a jumper is a huge fashion statement. Well, now these warm cuddly attire are going from drab, to fab!

Wear a slouchy jumper over a dull wash denim jean, and you are set for a fashionable, and cozy day ahead of you! Its best to get a jumper with a nice bright colour if you are going to put if over a dull shade. This is as specially great for this chilly time of year!

Sometimes you can be backwards and try a bright coloured skinny jean, and a dull shaded jumper! This would really wow your friends! If you want to kick it up another notch, then get a shorter cut jumper. Not one that will go all the way up to show your bellybutton, but to the cut of your waste line can be really cute!

Slouchy Dull Jumper

The way the jumper is made can really change the whole look of your outfit. Experimenting with knits that are more loose, and more tight can really help you find out what kind of jumper you prefer. Personally I think that the Jumpers with the looser knits to them are better paired with a cute pencil skirt to be comfy, yet stylish. This is yet another amazing thing to wear to a small holiday party.

What your jumper is made of is a huge difference when it comes to how it feels, and as specially how it looks. If you find a jumper that has a more fuzzy kind of knit to it, that would be amazingly stunning paired with some leggings and clunky boots. Skinny pants and boots were practically made for each other.

Slouchy Fuzzy Jumper

Being warm is a very important part of winter. So why not try to get a jumper that keeps you toasty! Turtle necks have had their history of being totally unfashionable, but its not the sweater… You just need to know how to wear it. It would easily go with any nice denim jean, and a messy hairdo? I hear STUNNING!

Sometimes less is more, when It comes to the right colours. Accessories are key when you are thinking in this direction. If you feel like not thinking too much about your Jumper, then denim, and boots are all you need to be thinking. Uggs seem to be really popular too! But dont think that you have to buy the expensive ones, look at me! I have just as nice Dogs, and you can hardly tell the difference.

Slouchy Plain Jumper

Cozy yet stylish things are really difficult to find not a days, so it really is great that jumpers are so popular right now. You better snatch them up while they are still in! But I have a feeling that they will be a fashion craze for a very long time.

I personally love jumpers, i have quite a few knits. Four to be exact. Another really cool thing I find about jumpers is that they dont have to be crazy expensive to be nice! Also you can totally change your outfit by putting on a jumper. You can go from tee shirt, converse and blue jeans, looking all casual, to comfy and chic with maybe a dark grey wool jumper and some clunky boots! It really if fascinating.

If you like to knit, you can make your own jumper as well! This can be very fun because then you can personalize it to be perfectly in your liking. Im not that big on knitting, but I have some grandmothers who love it! Now that I think about it, I am going to ask them if they can try to make me some!

The Craze: Party Dresses

Party Dresses. Probably one of the most exciting and fun clothing items to shop for! Last years trend for party dresses seemed to be sort of embellished and mini. Well here this year we are kicking it up a notch… more like three, and introducing the new craze Fully Glam Party Dresses.

Fully Glamour Party Dress

Super sparkly and chic seems to be that allot of women and teenage girls are sporting totally glamorous dresses. The nice colourful sparkles are right perfect, as specially in time for the holidays. Sparkles also go good on accessories, for example, pumps (heels), nails, and makeup are great ways to amp up the glitter! Just try not to go too over the top, otherwise you might end up looking like a glamourized jelly bean!

Sequin Party Dress

Feathers and sequins are totally in the same species as the sparkles though, so dont be afraid to go outside of the box and get something fluffy. Just try not to purchase anything that is going to make you look like a bird! There is a difference between ‘tweet’ and ‘sweet’.

Feathered Party Dress

Many people dont think that velvet can be considered chic on a dress, but you really have to get the right colour and shape. Velvet is a classy kind of chic that would be fabulous to wear to a nice Christmas party!

If you really want to shine, metallic dresses are really in right now. Gold, silver, and bronze coloured dresses are great to wear to a Holiday themed club, or maybe a social! Even if you cant find any party dresses that have a nice aluminum shine to them, just those colours are so festive for Christmas and New Years!

Sometimes simple is more. Even a loose, non fitted party dress would be fabulous for any occasion! A way to snazzy up an outfit  is with beads! On of apart from the dress! A nice beed necklace can add some instant class to a simple dress, and beads on the dress itself, can turn classic into spiffy.

So-Long Twinkies.

The beloved treat ‘Twinkies‘ are going extinct. The makers of these delicious golden sponge cakes are going out of business. They are also the makers of ‘Ding Dongs‘ and other tasty snacks.

Hostess, based is Ivring, Texas, said that it’s stores were going to stay open for a couple more days to sell their remaining products thought. Their reason of retirement is because there was a strike against them lead by the workers of the factories. This crazy strike spread all across the country.

The closing of the Hostess would lead to a loss of 18,500 jobs across the United States of America. Gregory Rayburn; the CEO of Hostess stated on their official website that all employees will eventually lose their jobs “some sooner than others”.

Hostess, which was founded in 1930 was fighting battles far beyond the labor costs, and unfortuantely, they lost that battle.

One Direction Fashion Takeover!

The world wide beloved british boy band One Direction is taking over fashion magazines. Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson have just been put on the covers of Wonderland, Teen Vogue, and  Cosmopolitan. The boys were told to model with 5 adorable puppies, and to wear preppy bright coloured knits when doing the shoot for Wonderland. When at the shoot for vogue, it was way different. They modeled with the lovely Edie Campbell, and they wore big dark varsity jackets. Between magazines they went from sweet and adorable, to trendy and obscure.

The boys or One Direction are very photogenic. In the picture that was on the front cover of Wonderland, Louis and Harry are smiling sweetly, and softly while holding the adorable puppies.
As for the cover of Cosmopolitan Harry, Niall, Liam, and Zayn all had this sweet, sly looks to them, when Louis was smiling as big as usual… which is big by the way :)Meanwhile Niall, Zayn and Liam are showing off their pearly white teeth in big cheeky smiles.

They had a very interesting photo shoot for the cover of Vogue. They were asked to do a freeze frame (a picture taken while they are in the air mid jump). This is not easy, but One Direction can do anything. They were all sporting these nice black matching suits. Nice clothing choice i must say. The final shot ended up really awes

ome. Harry Styles got the best air pose i think, but Louis’ look is very much in his personality. Very chic, and riveting. Meanwhile Niall is in the air with his irish charm :)
