Fashion, Modesty and Young Women

Because shirts, shorts and skirts seem to leave more skin exposed with every year that passes, parents often struggle with the idea of keeping their daughters in clothing that promotes a positive body image without appearing promiscuous; this tends to make it difficult to strike an appropriate balance between modesty and fashion with their tween or teen girls. However, moms and dads facing issues with their daughters’ wardrobes can take steps to come to a compromise that leaves everyone satisfied.

Understand Her Thought Process

Girls who dress in a way that their parents disapprove of may simply not have a solid understanding of the types of messages that clothing can send; this is typically a problem in families that have girls who spent their childhoods riding bikes, playing ball and hanging out with boys. In other words, a young woman who grew up as a tomboy may simply be exploring her newfound femininity when she wears clothing that is too short or tight. This can often be remedied by a frank conversation on why it is important for women to dress in a way that commands respect without giving up fashion or comfort.

Demonstrating Fashion Choices for Girls

Many young ladies choose to model their fashion choices after those of their mothers, aunts or other important females in their lives; while girls emulating women who they hold in high esteem is generally positive, teen and tween girls may not yet understand why adult females choose to dress differently than those who are younger. Girls who witness women dressing less modestly may need to explain why khakis and blouse are appropriate at work or school, while more slightly more revealing evening wear is acceptable at certain times.

Finding a Solution to the Clothing Quandary

Many parents begin shopping with their daughters when the girls are very young; making it an activity that a girl looks forward to is an excellent way to ensure that a tween or teen expects input on her clothing from an important adult. Parents who cannot reach a compromise on clothing with their daughters may want to consider purchasing only junior underwear for her; with lengths that reach from the mid-thigh to just above the knees, these garments cover enough area to ensure that girls who insist on wearing revealing attire are covering more of their bodies than the clothing alone allows.

Slurpee For Me And You

After we enjoy the huge pizza on the table in S&R, Our supervisor treat us again the Slurpee from 7/11. The Slurpee was on sale, we can buy one and the other one is free, it was such a great deal for us who were so thirsty at that time. We were not able to buy beverages in S&R since they do not sell 1 liter of Pepsi we have to buy it in a glass, which is heavier for the pocket. Here one picture that we had in S&R.

When September Ends

I can’t believe it, it is already September. I wonder what happen to the past 9 months. Did I accomplish something? I guess so. I mean not with renovating the house, since that was my priority before but because of financial constraints I was not able to do so. But look I started again to save which I am so much proud of, not much but will get to it for sure.

I was able to buy a pair of jeans; it was during the Kadayawan sale in the mall. I was waiting for my friends for a meet up and so to enjoy roaming around the mall, I spend some things. I bought a shirt for my youngest and myself a pair of jean.

In the later week, I was able to buy something for the house. A shoe rack! Yeah it is a shoe rack, and it was on sale from one of the online store. On the other hand I need to organize things in the third room where our new shoe rack was place. Its kind a messy there but wait I need to finish watching this movie “Before I wake” maybe later I will.

On the other hand, why the title? Because I just feel like, come on it is already September and I am wondering what wait for me when September Ends.

To Make Your Lips Pout

I wore lipstick and I just simply wore it. I won’t do anything to make it unique from others or to achieve things that would make you more impressive.

There are women out there who would do anything to make their lips looks more pout. When I said anything that includes already injections and fillers, but don’t you know that it is just a matter of shade and strokes to achieve the voluminous lips?

You can try to apply peppermint oil. Peppermint oil has this relaxing effect to your nerves thus help your lips to increase the pout. This irritates the lips a bit that make it swell or did I say voluptuous lips. But you don’t have to worry because; it won’t cause serious harm to your lips.

Try the red peppers too, it has capsicum oil that can help to flow the blood circulation thoroughly. When you apply the red pepper the oil that was mentioned will serve as plumping serum.

This one is natural; it has something to do with how you put it. Put a highlighter to the cupid’s bow of your lips, then apply a little amount of lip balm in the center of the bottom part of the like, this should   look gleam to your lips. The scintillate balm when it is reflected to the light, it will appear as being bigger than they are.
