Le French Fashion: Reem-yon It Up This Fall

“Fashion has two purposes: comfort and love. Beauty comes when fashion succeeds.”
—Coco

I am not a “fashion journalist.” If there’s one thing I know about myself, it’s that I am not a writer of style/fashion. I know right, so uncool. At least there’s one thing I do know about myself as a journalist/writer (woohoo!) It’s a shame, however, that not only do I not identify myself as a fashion writer, but I also refuse to “teach” myself to be a fashion writer. Because guess what? There’s A LOT of jobs out there that are for fashion journalism—and I just don’t want any of them. I don’t know what it is; maybe it’s the fact that I wanted to be a “fashion designer” in 7th grade, maybe because I’ve never sewed more than two things in my life, or maybe it’s cause writing about style, colors, and outfits just don’t fuel my fire.

However, if there’s one thing I do know it’s that the French are beautiful, skinny, and smelly. And they gave us Lady Liberty and are also named after one of America’s most delicious fried foods. With that historical information, I’m now going to try something new. I’m going to write a “style” post for the first time in mi vida. But, be warned mi amigos, this is unconventional, irrational, and will probably be exactly what you’re not looking for.  Continue reading

YouTube Ads & Gingers: Oh, the terror!

Gingers have no soul, they say. I’m not usually one to believe in rumors, but come on, this one is definitely true, don’t you agree?

 I’ve only liked two gingers my whole life. Ronald Weasley from Harry Potter and Dexter Morgan from DEXTER, the best show on Earth. Recently, I was listening to some music on YouTube, when a Victoria’s Secret commercial came on. Oh GOD, not only do I HATE ads before my favorite music plays,(everyone does), but I also DESPISE VS. Why? Because they charge like $27342983+++ for my bra size and that makes me feel sad 😦 It’s not my goddamn fault I was pleasantly endowed with a bigger bosom so why does VS have to torture me? Anyways, while I was about to end myself from the 30-sec commercial, I couldn’t help but notice that there was a REALLY GOOD FKING song playing in the background. After scrolling through the comments and whatnot, I figured out what song, artist it was, since I wasn’t the only one curious. I don’t know what it was, maybe I’m a girl, maybe I’ve been feeling lovey-dovey recently (don’t even dare to ask me why), but “Give Me Love” just sounded really fking great and now I can’t stop listening to it; while I sleep, while I shower, while I write—the combination of the smartphone and gingers have come far.

The lesson here, my friends, is that there comes a time in every individual’s life when the things/people/types/tastes that you usually dislike, even despise, might just surprise you with an inkling of pleasure. Because, guess what? Life works like that. Of course, there’s ALWAYS going to be things/people/types/tastes that are always going to suck no matter what, like Taylor Swift or the show GLEE, and that’s okay, that’s perfectly fiiiiine.

Day 8 of Master Cleanse: It’s Almost Ovah!

Today’s my 8th day on the MC and wow, I told myself time would go buy quickly and it sure did! It’s really great how the only time I blogged was when I first started the MC and now when it’s almost over. I’m really great you know, at keeping track of all the things I “try.” Today I am super tired because I went to bed late & woke up early for my 8:30am class—really a pain in the ass. It seems that my body refuses to wake up until 645am & that really sucks. I don’t know if it has to do with MC or not, but I do remember last week waking up early due to stomach cramps from the laxative tea. But then again, I had cramps the same time this morning as well, except I was just supposed to be up earlier. Continue reading

On the Master Cleanse!

Day 2 of the Master Cleanse:

I started the MC yesterday and oh man, it hasn’t been killing me — but it’s killing me. Haha. Last time I did the MC was 2 years ago (April). Recapping ;; yesterday, I felt quite weak and at night, it was the worst—I couldn’t go to sleep because of the headache from lack of food.

Today— It’s been alllllright. I threw up most of my SWF (Salt Water Flush) and that made me super sad. But, I guess I shouldn’t have chugged most of it either. It’s absolutely horrific. I hate it. The first 3 days are supposed to be painful, your body is trying to realize that yes, you’re not feeding me Jerk.

Nevertheless, I’ve felt stronger to “continue,” but oh my, the cravings I’ve gotten. Well, let me make a list of delicious foods I’ve gotten cravings of:

  • Chocolate!! Oh my.
  • Cupcakes, cupcakes, and uh, more cupcakes (thanks to How I Met Your Mother).
  • Fish, chicken, turkey.
  • Coffee! Ugh!
  • Sandwiches!

Can’t wait till I feel more confident about the diet, hopefully after the 5th day. Excited to cleanse my body & feel better. It’s been a tough couple of months & I know I need this.

Xoxo,

Nadia

Nice to say, I will be attending this Monday night for my internship with Inked Magazine. I haven’t been able to go to any because I used to have a night class every Monday, but before I depart to London, a hidden club under a sports bar (Stash) sounds just about sweet!

HELLO WORLD!

I have assumed that the world has greeted me back with the same enthusiasm that I have greeted it with. Considering that this is supposed to be my first post (ever) on a legitimate blogging website, aside from the elementary love of Xanga, I was unsure what exactly to write about.  I followed the detailed tutorial that WordPress provides you with on how to go from “zero to hero.” And I must admit: I AM IMPRESSED.  Maybe because I am a rookie, but I was very appalled at how much help someone who wants to write can receive from the internet if they are unsure on what exactly to do.  I even checked out the Plinky page that WordPress has set up if you really have not taken anything from the “brainstorming” exercises that the tutorials provide you with.  Needless to say, I did not need to use Plinky.com, just not yet.  Which makes me question exactly where I am going with this blog post. I could have simply chosen one of the numerous topics that I have written on my “napkin” as my first blog entry.  Yet, I have chosen to write about my experience pre-first post and exactly what I am doing at 1:30 in the morning.

Unfortunately, when one begins to question themselves in their own writing, things can become a bit complicated. But just a bit. Because although one of my teachers always told me to never mention or refer to your reader as “the reader,”  I must assure my reader that there is a conclusion to what you are reading.  There is a purpose and before you  move onto another entry or get up to answer nature’s call, or perhaps tell someone in your home to lower the volume, I must tell you that you are the reason why I too have joined WordPress.com. And have finally launched on my personal journey to the depths of literary devices and technology in a combination of what we refer to as “blogging.”

I may be a late bloomer to this timeless trend but like they say, “Better late than never.” And like, at the same time, a popular rapper says, ” … But never late is better.”  Thus, before I launch my rocket of ideas, criticism, opinion and catharsis of writing, I must thank WordPress for being one of the most popular blogging platforms mentioned in the search engines, and giving me the opportunity to attempt to discover what my niche truly is.  Before I dive into wonderful posts of blissful context, I must appreciate those who set the direction for such euphoria to even occur.  Thank you.

Sincerely,

Sudo
