Say “No” To The Thigh Gap

je

For me, being in high school there is all this pressure to be perfect. I have been affected by this pressure to be perfect even when I was little and I somewhat gave in because all it seemed like was people appreciated the skinny pretty girls than the others who didn’t really care about that stuff and was weird and well I was the weird girl. Which had led me to be depressed and suicidal.

Ever since I have been on Tumblr, I have been confident of who I am since I found girls who didn’t care what they looked like, but recently there have been these posts of skinny girls and I have been getting these thoughts that I should be like that. A few months ago, I kind of considered of getting an eating disorder since I felt too fat, but I loved food too much to give it all up.

Recently on the news I have been spotting reports on the thigh gap and including my poise and proper teacher Maria Woods has been speaking about it on the news (which I’ll be posting at the end). I thought that getting something this popular wasn’t going to be much of a risk and since it started all this controversy, why should I even bother?

Being healthy is more important than being dead looking skinny. If you want to be skinny, exercise and eat healthy, don’t starve yourself like I have done a few times. Look up to people like Jennifer Lawrence who would rather be fat than anorexic, and consider Anne Hathaway who was hesitate to play in Les Mis of how much weight she lost and she couldn’t sleep and she felt like was about to die.

Don’t feel like that! Unless you take care about yourself that is important, get off those sites that make you think that you should be model skinny because they aren’t taking care of themselves at all. I have heard they only drink shakes up until the day of the show where they don’t even drink water and that is very risky. If you are pressured by those around you, just ignore them and if you friends want you to have one than they are not your friends anyway.

Its more important to know what you would rather be called, “Dead looking” or “Healthy”. Its time to say “no” to the thigh gap and say yes to loving who you are since no one is fat, they are who they are and they can’t change that.

People just need to realize that judging girls and making fun of them will only hurt them. That is why we are all hurt because of how others see perfect woman which isn’t right. We shouldn’t be that perfect for anyone since perfect is boring.

Say “I don’t have a thigh gap and I am happy about that!”

A Dreamer

I was once was the girl who used to dream too much
With the rose petals in my hair
But I dreamt I go far in life but tend to get stuck
Since all I ever do was to care
Maybe something came over me one day
That made trails of my thoughts ran through my head
I had never thought I would come this way
Keeping in thoughts and not write then out instead
Believing in far off places was nothing normal
Maybe something like a miracle could happen
To make like some corny fairy tale
That was like some way for me to have him
But life isn’t fair by how fate works
For I have loved a boy once and he is gone
Didn’t care for me that is kind of one of the perks
Of being shy with an imagination that I didn’t share to one
I knew how like treated dreamers as those are pathetic
As much I tried to go on it was hard to believe
So I had become somewhat what I call a realist
Since nothing special like a boy would ever like me
But I know a fact that if I keep dreaming
That maybe I’m not done childish one at all
That believing is more than just seeing
That one day, I’ll pray to God that I will fall
Maybe in the place I’ve wanted to be in the world
Maybe known for miles and miles and loved by him
Even though I have big dreams in a place and I am a girl
I know for a fact that I’ll make a change even if its slim

New Story!

Recently I’ve been thinking about a new story which was inspired by HOA, Dance Academy, Degrassi and Pretty Little Liars, so I would to share a summary with it even though I don’t know if its going to be finished anytime soon. P.S. I always made my main characters so naive and innocent but not this time.

“Ariana Coleman has been living on the edge ever since her 17th birthday, but being at the wrong place at the wrong time can often lead to trouble. Witnessing a terrible action, Ariana is placed under Witness Protection Program. She is given a new name, and is forced to live in a place she has never been before. Trying to fit in being someone is completely different even if seeing someone who knew the original her. What would happen if everyone finds out who she really is and what she has done?”

Not the best summary but whatever!

Kid Choice Awards 2013 Fashion

I’ve been scouring the internet for fashion that celebs have worn to the 2013 KCAs. Yes, I regret to say I have watched it (but Logan Lerman was there!). So I have put together my favorite fashions of the night, I mean that night.

I Do NOt OWn Any Of These Pictures

Zendaya’s outfit is so cute! I’m trying to find a pastel sweater with a floral skirt! I love how she paired the outfit with a bejeweled Peter Pan collar! But I kinda wish she paired it with different shoes. Also rooting for you on Dancing With the Stars so rock that sassy walk!

Oh Lucy Hale! Apparently you are kinda my twin (well more like Aria) from what my friends say and let me say OMG VERY RETRO! I have this obsession with the black and white fashion trend! Its so cute!

The House of the Anubis Girls! (From Left) If you don’t know these flawless beings, they include Jade Ramsey, Louisa Connolly-Burnham, Klariza Clayton, Tasie Lawrence and Ana Mulvoy Ten with a little peak of Burkely Duffield’s face. Jade’s outfit consists of the black and white trend with black little wedges (I freakin love wedges). Louisa is sparkly like a Christmas ornament and hopefully if she gets slimed, her shoes will hide the damage. Klariza has such a pretty ivory Jones and Jones dress with little designs which I thought were flowers at first but ended up being little triangles, but I’m not sure, but pretty cute with those heels. Tasie is prepared to be slimed with the green haute couture (yes I made that up) outfit. And last but not least Ana’s very flowery black and white top with a white feminine worky like skirt and black cute heels I wish I could look closer at. I could talk about Burkely and all but I’ll continue on.

Yet again the black and white style! So retro (what ever that means. I keep saying it but I don’t know what it means). Those white heels… GIVE ME NOW (cue GIF). Not to be wrong or anything but is that suppose to be a long sweater or a sweater dress? What ever but I want her legs and her hair and yes I am jealous of her. Like seriously we are the same age and she is like Cleopatra when I look like Shrek’s foot! Oh well continue on…

OMEG(Oh my effin gosh!) Selena Freakin Gomez! Like seriously can I please be you! I have to say this is, or was, my favorite outfit of the pass weekend! Pastel colors on Pastel colors! My most favorite trend for the spring which hopefully y’all learn.

There were defiantly other cute outfits but since its late at night I should sum it down to my most favorites.

Dear Future Daughter

307995_170212323064147_529276176_n

Recently my mom has been wanting me to read “25 Lessons for a 15 Year Old Girl” since she believed it was inspiring. She even tried printing it out but it failed. SO I decided to read it and it gave me and idea, I’m still 15 and will be for another 6 months so I thought why not do a letter for my future daughter. Just saying I’m only 15 and have a lot of guy friends who will never give me a high five any time soon so I’ll be hopefully saving this for my FUTURE daughter in the next 20 years or so from the lessons I have learned growing up.

Since growing up is hard and from the eyes of Peter Pan, it is not some fun trip. When I was little, I couldn’t wait to get out of the house and start my life ruling the world but sadly as I got closer to the age I was excited about, nothing turned out right and everything came crashing down. SO hopefully nothing bad will ever happen to you if you just know how to get through everything.

What you will need to know on your way through life.

  1. You know that friend you made during elementary school thinking you will be friends forever? She/he might turn against you but you now know that they weren’t your friends.
  2. There are people who are willing to see you fall but as hard as you come down, get up even stronger.
  3. Boys will have cooties but as soon as they get hotter, don’t go falling too fast.
  4. Be careful who you tell your secrets to and be careful who you trust.
  5. No matter how hard life gets, don’t do anything you will regret.
  6. Life is precious so cherish it by not staying online all day like me.
  7. You will go by many frogs until you find your prince charming.
  8. Its okay to not be okay and you can always cry.
  9. Your real friends will stick around during hard times while fake ones don’t.
  10. Being who you are means more than anything but always look over the mistakes you have made and fix it.

I’ll be adding the link of the article below and this is what I believe. And the picture is of my and my brother when I was young so enjoy.
