What I've Learned So Far...



Well, I haven't had internet and I've been trying to settle in this new town and I've been so busy with school. But so far I just love it! I'm in workshop learning how to do perms and relaxers and now on Monday I'll be learning nails. My first week in class we learned basic hairstyles. I learned how to put rollers in and how to fingerwaves and pincurls and I'll tell you something, All of those things are coming back in style. You would think of fingerwaves when you see a picture of a woman in the 20s. But they are coming back. And so are roller sets. Most people don't like to use rollers because they think it takes too much time and reminds them of a little old lady. But alot of celebrities are using them. And you want to know why...They last longer! When you want a long lasting curl that will stay all day and night do a roller set. Sure it might take a little extra time in the morning but you could even do it at night and let it dry and you'll be ready in the morning! And it's really a good idea for girls who want curls but don't like to damage their hair with a curling iron. That's what I love about it, it requires no heat. And there is also a good way for you to straighten your hair without a lot of heat damage. Have you ever heard of a hair wrap? Its not that hard and if you do it when your hair is wet it's very simple and when it drys out your hair will be nice and smooth and straight. There might be a little waves but you can straighten those out and you still won't get that much heat damage. In the video I will embed she does it to dry and straight hair but like i said it's much easier to do when your hair is wet and it will dry alot smoother.

Just So You Know

Well, I haven't written anything lately, I've just been so busy with everything. As you all know I'm going to be starting at Regency pretty soon so I've been busy packing and getting everything sorted out. I'm pretty excited about moving to St.Louis and away from everything. But I'm so nervous. As most people are when they start something new. Anyway, I probably will be without Internet for a while so I won't be able to post anything for a while until then. But as soon as I do I will keep everyone up to date on my experiences and some more great tips. I really hope that everyone has enjoyed reading my blog posts so far. I'm not much of a writer I know but at least I try.
So, it's 5:00 in the morning as I'm writing this. I'm so nervous about today, I have to take all my drivers test! I've let my permit expire for maybe 6 months :s and I've already failed my drivers part three times. And what really makes me mad is it's always the same dang woman who fails me...*sigh*. So, I have to take the written and drivers exam all in one day and I'm so nervous. If I don't pass I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm moving on Friday and I kind of need my license to get up there. So I wish that everyone wish me good luck and maybe write some good drivers tips on here. It'll really help. Hopefully since I can't fall asleep I won't be so tired that I won't be able to focus. Which that'll be my luck...
So, fingers crossed.

Style Isn't Just For Girls Ya Know!

So, did you know guys like to look good? I know right! It's hard to tell sometimes. All those guys with baggy jeans and over sized shirts...you wouldn't know it but they actually think they look nice. Sometimes I wish guys would look at other guys and take style tips from them. I honestly wonder sometimes if guys look around them and see that no one else is wearing clothes that they wear. My fiance likes to look good but to a certain extent. He'll never wear anything dirty (thank goodness), he won't wear all black because then he thinks he looks Gothic, and he knows black and brown does not match. In the summer time he will only wear shorts, his job isn't the kind of job wear you wear a nice suit and a tie, he can wear casual clothes all year round. Unless it's something important other than that he wants to feel comfortable. In the winter time he'll wear mostly sweat pants but sometimes jeans if we go some where. I mean sometimes I can't complain he looks nice but sometimes he looks like he's still in high school with his Abrocrombie shirts and his sneakers.
Once I took him to Macy's and picked him out some clothes. And I honestly wanted to throw a rack at him, everything I picked out he said no to because he thought he would look 'gay'. What's wrong with a sweater vest? It was just a plain black sweater vest...I just wish he would realize that most women love the way gay guys dress. I mean there is nothing wrong with a guy dressing nice. I just wish I could get into a guys mind and know what they think about. When they look at a handsome man like Daniel Craig, do they honestly think "he looks gay"...The man is James Bond for crying out loud. If my fiance dressed like James Bond I would love it. I just hope there will come a time in my fiance's life that he finally dresses his age. I guess I'm just going to have to start buying his clothes for him.

Stay Classy

So many people, not just celebrities, get pulled down by the party world everyday day. Not even just going out every night and going to parties but also just letting yourself go. Giving up on looking presentable while going out. Putting all those toxins in your body and only thinking about the short term effects and not the long term effects. So many celebrities are starting to be bad influences and you really don't have many people anymore for young girls to look up to.
Celebrities that girls used to look up to are now going out and going to parties and leaving drunk and getting d.U.I.s. Teen celebrities showing up on the web with provocative pictures. I know no one can stop teenagers from wanting to grow up fast but you can help it be in a good way. Many girls these days are seeing Miley Cyrus on Disney channel then seeing her on magazines wearing skimpy clothing and on the web with pictures of herself in just her bra and underwear looking provocative. You honestly think girls wouldn't look up to that but they do. When I was younger I saw Britney Spears in a short baby shirt and a mini skirt. Many adults would think of that as a hooker. I thought it was cute. So don't underestimate what girls look up to these days.
Also, celebrities are making wrong choices and are getting out of things so easily. Khloe Kardashian was sentenced to 30 days in jail for failing to complete roadside cleanup duty and enroll in an alcohol education class. She was in jail for only hours until she was released for 'over crowding'. To me that shows girls that you can do something wrong and if your pretty or rich enough you can just get off easy. In the real world that just doesn't happen.
Just like Alexis Neiers who was allegedly involved with the Hollywood "Bling-Ring" burglaries. She now has a show on E! called Pretty Wild and was featured in Vanity Fair magazine. Not only does this show that you can do something bad and not have consequences but you might have good consequences. These people should not have been rewarded with a TV show or jobs because they have done something wrong. Although Alexis Neiers has gone to a school to talk about bad influences and that she regretted it. Which I do agree with her doing. If celebrities are put in the spotlight after they have done something wrong, use it to be a good influence. Because I know that no one is perfect but you shouldn't be more publicized for what you did.

So girls, try and be good influences for the younger girls out there. If you don't like seeing young girls out there with heavy makeup on and hooker heels...Don't do it yourself. Be classy, dress classy, act classy.

Favorite movie

Today I watched the movie Penelope and boy did it get me inspired. That is one of my all time favorite movies. It has such a good message. That even though you have flaws you should learn to love yourself for you. Everyone else will soon love you too. I know I talk about acceptance and self confidence all the time but I do believe it's a very important thing.
It's just like the other day, my fiance's sister came over and I did her hair and makeup for her. She seemed a lot more confident after that. Shes very pretty, she has some of the smoothest skin in the world, but she's just not confident. If your more confident you can do amazing things. You start treating yourself better and that mean surrounding yourself with better people, better food, better things. You'll start to love yourself a whole lot more.
