Ok so I know I haven’t written in a while, you have every right to be upset. The tone of my blog will be shifting a bit for reasons that I will explain later. Anyways, I’ll be writing entries every Wednesday starting next week. Thank you so much! See you guys soon!
Sorry that I haven’t posted in a while, my life suddenly became the ground work for a soap opera. But enough about me, I’m here to talk about magazines. When you open a magazine, what is the first thing that you see? I’ll give you a minute…
If one of the things that you said were super skinny models, then you and I are on the same page. Because magazines influence so much of the media, when we see those women we begin to believe the lie. What is the lie? The lie is that girls need to look like them, and if anyone is a little bit bigger they’re fat. Why is that? Why has that become the norm? Tell me what you think in the comments below.
Whenever I pick up a magazine that is supposed to be for teenage girls, these are the types of things that I see:
How To Make A Guy Notice You!
Makeup Tips That Will Definitely Catch His Eye
Things guys Love In a Girl
…and so on…
The main problem that I have with these is that they are all saying the same thing; change yourself to be acceptable, because right now you’re not even close. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for feeling good about yourself, but there’s a line that is often crossed. One side of that line is enhancing what you have, and the other side is hiding who you truly are. I don’t want to believe that the only way that I’ll find someone is if change who I am so that I’ll be acceptable. Because in reality, they wouldn’t be in love with me, they would be in love with who I was pretending to be. So I’m not saying that you shouldn’t wear makeup at all, I’m saying that you should wear enough to cover what you want it to cover, but not too much so that you can still show who you really are. Because you aren’t like everyone else, and you should take advantage of that.
Thanks for listening.
If you have an idea for my next post, put it in a comment!
What goes through the minds of some fashion designers sometimes. I mean seriously. Just take a look at this dress and tell me honestly that you could confidently wear this out…in front of people. I’ll wait. http://chicstories.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/agatha-ruiz-de-la-prada-fw-09-2.jpg
If you could pull that off then props to you sister, because I definitely could not. Some of the things that are considered cool nowadays seem completely crazy to me. There’s spikes, sparkles, beads, you name it and its probably been thrown on a piece of clothing. Now I’m not saying that flair can’t be cute but there comes a time when it gets to be a little too much. What’s your opinion of current fashion trends?
