The Hair

For prom I chose to go with a classic French Twist updo. I wanted something that was simple, elegant, and chic to go with my dress and shoes. I didn’t want anything that would be too busy or something that would distract from the main attention, but something that people would still notice. I also didn’t want the typical curly-curls hairstyle that is normally seen at proms, as was seen at mine. People either had their hair straight down or in some form of curls.

The Dress


My gorgeous gown/dress. So I chose this image to display here because it shows a little bit of both the front and the back. I bought my dress from David’s Bridal, which was an amazing experience on its own–being surrounded by all of these gorgeous gowns for different occasions, and then of course there was the wedding gowns.

Today during lunch at school, I found out the sad news that Elizabeth Taylor, screen legend, two-time Academy Award winner for Best Actress, and Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire, died today, March 23, 2011, at age 79 at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles. She died in peace, surrounded by her four children. Other than her notable movie roles, “Liz” Taylor was also known for her multiple marriages, surely that’s one thing I associated her with when I heard her name. Read the rest of this entry »

Watch Hunt

I remember when I was younger, when I wore watches more often, and then I got a little older, and I don’t know why, but I just stopped wearing them. I guess I just looked at only one aspect of wearing a watch–time–and I instead started to rely on my cell for time. However, later last year my love for watches as an accessory was reignited, mainly because a school friend of mine has a really cool collection of watches, Read the rest of this entry »
