Prom/Homecoming Style

I worked with my best friend Hayley on this blog post πŸ™‚
We were thinking for people who has a prom at the end of year to think faster so they can either order their dresses online earlier or hit the malls earlier. Here’s what we think.

Your homecoming is probably over, but this would be good for those of you who are interested in buying a fantabulous dress and pair of shoes for your next prom. Why now? The prices has gone low, and it’s time for us to act! These are our picks! πŸ™‚

(All of them are above the knee, maxi dresses can also be found in the sites given below, but we really recommend BCBG for better quality! Visit them at: www.bcbg.com

DRESSES
ONE SHOULDER

LOW price: From GoJane, we saw this pretty dress – not really considered formal – but with a low price. You can start out with it WITHOUT a belt. It’s $23.60, great for those of you who are saving for shoes!

AFFORDABLE price: This is a bright dress, one of us has this one! (just in case you know one of us, we’re not telling you who). It carries you out and makes you stand out of the crowd. STOP THE SHOW πŸ™‚

We are NOT advertising for GoJane.com We personally like GoJane, and want people to look better in their dresses πŸ™‚

You can visit GoJane at www.gojane.com

STRAPLESS

LOW price: $29.80, perfect black dress with a big bulb flower, from forever 21. Visit them at: www.forever21.com

HIGH price: It’ll hurt, and it’s an EXTRA pricey $298. But the quality is perfect (the price shows it all!). I’m not saying the low prices have bad quality, the low prices have decent quality, and high priced choices involve with people who go out more with the dress. GOLDEN RULE: THINK BEFORE YOU BUY. This is a BCBG Max Azria Dress. It’s not like other people’s boring black strapless, it has abstract flower patterns and is extra colorful! Colors make the BRAIN HAPPY!! Visit BCBG at: www.bcbg.com

PSSST PSST (CELEBRITY NEWSFLASH): Selena Gomez’s favorite brand is BCBG!

Thanks for reading, and tell us how YOU feel at inspirenews@care2.com!

(Other dresses will be shown on the new inspire page)


Concealer and Foundation

This week’s SHORT newsletter is about concealer and foundation. Thanks to NTY’s Maria for helping me out this week! πŸ™‚

This is direct text copied, images will be provided in a different format.

WHAT IS CONCEALER?

It’s a coverage on your face of blemishes and spots that are sudden that occur on your face. AKA a corrector for your face. It’s a lovely thing, and this week we recommend Bobbi Brown’s concealer.

Which ones?

A “Face Touch Up Stick” that you can slip into your pocket when your out and about. It’s $22 but it’s TOTALLY worth it.

The other one is the “Creamy Concealer”, which you can just pat on your face in no time – and it’s extra creamy, and it does not give you an icky feeling (we know!). Also $22

These two are the AWARD WINNING concealers in Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. (We are not advertising for them, we are just recommending what we feel is the best for you) You can visit Bobbi Brown at


Mom’s Congregated

SERIOUSLY
This is a totally big situation that ALL OF US whose moms attend PTA STUFF do.
I’m so mad at this because all the mom’s are just congregated in little circles talking about who’s with who, and what we do at home.

So, how do I know this?
My mom just came back home, about 30 minutes ago telling me about a birthday party that I told her I went. (I didn’t go, really) And then today, this other girl’s mom (supposedly my friend), told my mom that she went to so-and-so’s party, and my mom told her I WENT TOO. And the girl’s mom said YOUR DAUGHTER DIDN’T GO.
And my mom’s like REALLY? BUT IT’S THE SAME PERSON.
I didn’t get in trouble because I said it was the wrong time, day, and place.
Yeah psh SAME KIND OF PLACE, but not the SAME PERSON AND DAY AND TIME
Dude if the girl knows I lied to my mom about it, I bet she’ll spread to the whole wide freaking world.
Paranoia is freaking going through me. This is OSADGOIESNGLKDSANGLKSNLFND UGHHHHH.

Oh and you know when a mom shares a secret about her daughter, and another mom thinks that she should share one? THAT WORKS WITH MY MOM. The same girl’s mom tells some awkward thing about her daughter, (probably fake to stimulate my mom to say one of MY true ones) and my mom, thinking that she should repay the favor since SHE said a secret, SHE TOLD ONE OF MY TRUE ONES. And then she told me afterwards about it and I’m all pissed.

UPDATE

Sorry I’m really furious, I don’t want my reputation to get all oargaodngdslkg if the girl’s mom tells her daughter. I’m still really scared. Hey guys, how’s life?
Thanks for all the wonderful birthday emails, btw! Forgot to say them in the last two posts! πŸ™‚
Thanks to Sarah J., who gave me a BEEEAUTTTIFUL ECARD! it was really pretty and the words are sparklyy! πŸ™‚
Thanks so much Sarah!
And also to Kenny, who gave me lots of PICTURES of gifts! LOL
Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes!

Also, I got the new Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch. DING check it out on the bottom v

It’s great, LOVE IT. But really, what’s with the Ink Squared system? I have to download it at the helpdesk tomorrow. ARGHH

Anyways, thanks for tuning in last time, and the criticisms helped, but some of them were extremely mean 😦
I cried
Haha joking I’m not that fragile. You’ll have to mentally hurt me to make me cry (good luck though).

Okay, I’m going to go work on that essay. I’ll see you guys around ❀

Dreams

Everyone has them. No, not everyone, just some people who usually have higher IQs. I mean, if you ask me what my hobby is today, I’m probably going to use about 365 days until I tell you my real answer. It’s hard to say – I like drawing: because I really don’t, or I like Math: because I hate math, or I like dancing: because I don’t really take dance classes anymore. Sometimes it seems as if everyone has a stereotype except for me, because I’m good at nothing. Well, okay, the one thing that I’m good at is playing the cello, but 2 reasons that really bug me into “I like playing cello” is: 1. Please. You think I really like playing the cello? I count down the seconds until I’m done with that 1 hour each day! It’s really depressing. Though I really love playing with the orchestra…. 2. People in the same age as me has beaten me down and it makes me feel as if I’m really low level, and that really discourages me, and I feel like I can’t rise in that field ever again. (It’s just my thing)

I may not be able to say out my hobbies, but I’ve got a great deal of dreams. My dream that I am still trying to go for is being a circus performer/dancer/actress. I’m trying to fulfill this dream by applying for Cirque du Soleil interviews! I came up with the dream when I was about 3 years old or something like that. My grandpa had a circus that involved all my aunts and uncles and it was famous in Asia. My daddy told me about it and I was so fascinated by the idea I vowed to myself to be a circus performer slash dancer slash actress. I probably won’t be able to do tricky like stuff in mid-air because I’m totally afraid of heights, but I can totally do like, GROUND STUFF, where you stay on the GROUND. Why Cirque du Soleil? I didn’t know which one I should try out for until this summer’s stay at Macau. As a birthday present (as I said in my previous post) my mom gave me a ticket to the ZAIA performance of Cirque du Soleil.

It was my second time watching a circus performance, and circuses still fascinate me.

My second dream was being a ballet teacher. But unfortunately, I’m not as flexible as the “Little Alex doing splits”. So, scratch out ballet teacher. Never going to happen.

I don’t feel like sharing the other 3 dreams because they a personal goals that are being achieved or is achieved, with family business/stuff included.

I think I should go because WordPress editor is really hating me and it keeps flashing.

GoodNight worldie.

ps. i woke up at 4 this morning and saw two cockroaches in my kitchen. dear goodness. just thought i’ll share my little wake up story. kbye.


I wish I was 18

Hi there. It’s been a while since I’ve talked to you. Well, not really talk. I mean, it’s been a while since I’ve TYPED to you. The summer (it’s the past now) has been great. I have been great. My mom has been great. My dad has been great. So on. How bout you? How’s life at your little (or big, or medium) cozy (or non-cozy) home (or outerspace, or the horse stable, okay I’m so done)?

Well I’ve been doing some traveling, in fact, A LOT of traveling. Due to my dad’s paranoid little mind, I have to share it to you AFTER we finished our little traveling spree. (He thinks someone from half-way across the world is going to come and hunt us down)

So, I’ve been to Macau and Hong Kong. Macau is NOT for underage people. If you’re underage and you go there, it’s not going to be fun. I’m underage. It’s not fun. I’ve been spending 2 days screaming in my mind “I wish I was 18, I wish I was 18.” Yeah. I really do. My daddy and mommy tells me not get out of boundaries when I see the sign because I CAN’T GAMBLE, and I’M FIFTEEN. I turned 15 a few days ago, thank you very much!

But, BACK TO MY POINT. When you turn 18, the whole world is free to you.

I picked up a brochure at the airport it said in big letters: WIN A TRIP TO HONG KONG AND MACAU FOR TWO!

In my mind I’m just like: Perfect! I can finally go with my friend WITHOUT my parents!

Just as I was writing in the information and feeling proud of myself, my eyes peered to the bottom – it was in mini mini letters: Be sure that you are 18 years of age.

At that, my whole hand freezed. UHSDAOGNEWGNKASKLD, ARE YOU SERIOUS?
Okay, I understand the whole parents thing and stuff but. WHY? I mean you can just give the parents a permission slip to sign or have them sign it in person like in front of the people but, SERIOUSLY. WHY?

The other day I went the spa with my mom. My mom was going to get a deluxe pedicure or something like that, and I was going to get a French manicure. We had everything planned in mind. When we went there, everything was fine, we asked the lady, she brought us in, and we told her what we wanted to do. My mom said she was gonna get a deluxe pedicure, and the lady marked stuff on her paper, then, my mom said I was going to get a french manicure. After she said that, the lady asked my mom. “Does your daughter have 18 years of age?”
At that moment I really wanted to twist someone’s finger. Definitely my mom said no, and I had to sit on the couch and wait with Vogue magazines for mommy to finish her deluxe pedicure (oandsafnsdkf).

I’m glad I’m home though. Everything’s done and gone, and I mean, manicures have no age limits here, and gambling? I know I have to wait a few years for the casino, but I’ve got my iPhone and iPad applications with me here, so I’m good to go. It’s good to be home.
