Teen Fashion: Let’s Go To The Movies Ally!

DSC_2292_12

About a month ago I was invited by my friends to go out to the movies in order to celebrate both my birthday and another friend of mine who also shared a birthday in August. We decided that we all wanted to see Guardians of the Galaxy because a lot of kids at my school were talking about how amazing it was. I was super pumped because I always love going to the movies to hang out with my friends. To be completely honest I don’t care for watching the actual movie, I enjoy being able to talk to my friends and I really enjoy movie theater popcorn! Is it just me or does anyone else have an obsession for movie theater popcorn? One of my friends gave me a ride to the movies and it was super fun chilling with them in the car… and we may or may not have sung along to fancy while we were in the car. There are two different movie theaters near where I live and on our ride to the movies, my friend’s grandma accidentally took us to the wrong one. Good thing we left early, because that gave us enough time to drive to the other one and get their on time. One minute later and we would have been late. When we got there we immediately ran out of the car because we saw how long the lines were and we had ten minutes to get tickets before the movie started. Standing in line was pretty cool because the rest of my friends were already there so we just talked about what was new since not all of us went to the same school. After we got our tickets we ran to the popcorn and drink station to fill up our buckets and cups. When I went to go get my usual slushy, (which was a mixture of cherry and coke) they ran out of both flavors! I was sort of upset because I don’t get my slushy fixing unless I go to the movies. So what was I forced to do? I had to get the blue raspberry flavor! How inhumane is that! The world must have been ending! Well that’s what I thought before I tried it. It actually turned out to taste pretty good, not as good as my cherry coke mixture though. Turns out my friends and I know how to hustle when it comes to having ten minutes to get everything together because we made it just seconds before the movie started.

Now it’s time for a movie review!!! I give the movie 3.5 stars out of 5. Now this is pretty good on my rating scale because in order to get 5 stars you gotta be a top notch movie. What I liked about the movie was that it had pretty much everything you could ask for. You’ve go a bit of romance thrown in, scenes that pull at the heart strings, comedy, and tons of action! Now I’m a girl who prefers to see a good battle before a mush love story. If the fight is done well and the action is very engaging then count me in! This movie had a good amount of action and I also enjoyed a lot the funny tidbits that they threw in to keep the audience engaged. After watching that movie my friends and I kept saying “we are groot.” For the sake of spoilers I’ll make sure not to tell you the reason for why we continue to say to this day but it’s pretty cute. I also give credit to the soundtrack that they used! I love 80’s music and that pretty much makes up the soundtrack that is used. I will also admit that I am guilty of singing along to a couple of the songs, but hey! I couldn’t help it, I had to!

I decided to wear a dress to the movies because I knew that we were going to be taking plenty of group pictures. Now I will admit that it’s and odd choice in order to go watch a marvel movie, but there are no laws against it so YOLO! Yes, I am aware that I am the only teenager left on this planet who still uses yolo. No, I don’t care that I’m the only teenager left because I like how it sounds. Now the dress I wore has a tie-dyed sort of look to it. I usually don’t like tie-dyed clothing but I liked how cool it looked with the blue. I also liked how the back was cut out in a v cut. My favorite part of the dress is how flowy it is! I love twirling in it so much because I get to look at the skirt fly up and spin around. I can’t spin too much though because it’ll fly way up too much… that wouldn’t be good at all, quite embarrassing actually. To add some more flare to the dress, I added a white belt with silver circles on it. I know, the pattern play is quite on point if you ask me. The jewelry I kept pretty simple. Some stud crystal earrings, a simple silver chain necklace, and a cuff with white and silver. My shoes were white sandals. This outfit may look a little simple but it also looks very stylish and you can wear it for many other occasions other than to go to the movies. Say you want to walk around town, go on a date, or attend a nice family gathering, this outfit is perfect for those reasons and more.

Teen Fashion: Quinceañera Fit for a Queen

Last year in the beginning of my 9th grade school year, one of my friends came to me with the idea about how she was going to have a quinceañera. I thought it was an awesome idea and that it would be great for her to have one. Moments later she then asked me to be one of her damas. Damas are pretty much the bridesmaids of the quinceañera. I was super stoked to be one. She talked about it all year and threw out some ideas. She started having some gatherings at her house so that her and all the damas could plan on the dance and the dresses we had to wear. We originally were supposed to find dates but none of us could find a date or keep a date in time for the party, so she cancelled having dates. The only person who found a date in time was the birthday girl herself which was great and needed anyways.

Two weeks before the party we started meeting up every day to learn the dance. It is tradition that at a quinceañera the damas and the birthday girl do a dance with their dates, in this case we had to do it without dates. Coming up with a good dance was sort of difficult because we all had our own opinions and some of us could and couldn’t pick up certain moves. Also it was hard to teach everybody the dance because not everybody would be at each rehearsal so we would have to go back and teach the people who weren’t there the day before. I will admit that it was pretty fun learning the dance. During our breaks we would play games like hide and go seek, we even made a Harlem Shake video just for fun.

Since I was a dama, that meant I had a very specific dress code to go under. All the damas have to look the same, so that meant wearing the same dress. We all wore a white dress that was one sleeved and had a gold piece that served as the one sleeve and had gold and silver embellishments on it. It was a fairly simple dress so it wasn’t very hard to style. We also had to wear gold, white, or silver shoes with the dresses. We were only supposed to wear minimal jewelry, which was simple silver or gold earrings. We had to have our hair up in some sort of bun, I decided to go with a messy bun to style it a bit differently. Makeup was very simple, but we had to wear a bold red lip stick color. All the damas looked great because we all made sure to stay within the dress code and we ended up looking amazing together and matched the birthday girl’s dress very well.

It came to the time of the party and all the damas were pretty nervous about the dance. I mean it’s not often you stand in front of a bunch of people and bust out your moves for their entertainment, at least not often for me. Before we got to the party we made sure to take some pictures of all the damas and the birthday girl. The first set of pictures were taken by mom because she insisted on it, I think she wanted the practice. The next round of pictures were taken by the birthday girl’s mom, we drove to some water fountains and took some nice pictures there. The next stop was the party and I was sort of freaking out and making sure I remembered the dance because I was the one who had to lead everyone into the dance, it was sort of scary for me. We got there and came in to the building in an orderly fashion. The DJ announced that birthday girl had just walked into the building and everyone started clapping. The birthday girl and the damas were seated in their own table at the front of the room, kind of like the king and queens.

Just moments after sitting down we were rushed onto the floor so that we could do our dance. We had some troubles at first because the DJ started too early and he couldn’t hear us when we were telling him to rewind the song, this caused me to freak out a bit more. The track then started and I walked out and started dancing and the girls came after one by one. The dance went so smoothly and well by what I could see. Everyone seemed to remember each part and there was no trouble! That was a huge load off my shoulders. The rest of the night consisted of me rapping to “Can’t hold us”, dancing the Gangnam Style, the Cupid Shuffle, and the Electric Slide. Also they played some hispanic music to which I dance with my parents (remembering how we used to dance back in Puerto Rico). I also made sure to teach a few moves to my friends while I was at it.

In all I would have to say that I did have a lot of fun. I had fun being able to hang out with my friends and just have fun and let loose. We all were dancing and smiling, I would say we all had fun. I’m mostly happy that I was able to be there for my friend on her birthday because you only turn 15 once. I would have to say that my first quinceañera was a success and I hope to be attending more in the future!

 

 

 

Blossom Joy

Today is a super important day for one my family members, Blossom Joy. Blossom Joy is my super cute shih tzu puppy that turned 2 years old today. It may seem odd that I am excited about her birthday, but she is really special to me. She helps me get through any personal problems  I have just by looking at her cute furry face. Sometimes when I’m alone in my room and break out dancing to whatever song is  on the radio, she watches me from her pink pillow almost wondering what I’m doing. I must admit that we are all  completely guilty of pampering her. For some reason the family ended up calling her Tukers, my mom started calling her that just a while after we got her and I guess the name caught on with the rest of us. She may not be a very active pup, but when she gets excited or mad she runs around at a fast pace and attacks her toys. I would definitely hate to be one of her toys. Blossom’s favorite food would have to be hot dogs and ice. Lately we have put hot dogs in her dog food because she won’t eat the kibbles unless there is some human food to mask the taste. I can’t really blame her. A few things she really hates are taking baths and getting brushed, it’s a complete WWE brawl every time it comes around. The outfit is therefore inspired by Blossy/Tukers and her amazing birthday. The shih tzu in the left corner represents how Blossom is around our house, a pampered pup. I chose fur and pearls in the outfit because I though it went well with Blossom’s elegant and girly attitude. Blossom likes a lot of attention, that is why I used a hue of blue that will catch people’s attention. The light pink shoes were used because I took that color out of some of the flowers on the dress. I’m pretty sure that if Blossom was a human, she would wear an outfit such as this one. It represents her personality very well. I always wonder what she would talk about if she could talk. I think Blossom would be the type to complain about everything there is. If your dog was able to talk to you, what do you think he or she would say?
