Beauty Pageant Tips: From Experience

Alright so this year's reign is almost over and I can confess that I have made some mistakes. I'm only human people! So to save some of you guys from on stage embarrassment whether it's for a talent show, PAGEANT, or something where you are the point of attention here are some tips:

1. Good Posture!
I know the judges and audiences are most likely looking up at you, literally (Because the stage is most likely higher than the general seating), so you have the urge to slouch down.. Don't! In my case, I had on a strapless Cinderella dress, I am slightly heavy chested, and the camera was pointing UP at me AND to make matters worst, I slouched. Horrible, yes I know, WORST angle for a camera to see. My dress looked scrunchy and not as pretty as I wished it could have looked on the camera.

2. SMILE!
The camera is always pointed towards the stage, no matter if you are in the back ground or not, SMILE. Be careful of your facials because you don't want the camera to catch you scowling because you didn't win or laughing at another contestant :(

3. Be a good sport/ team player/ etc etc.
You are not in the pageant to make friends but, you are in the pageant to be a role model for others. Just remember, that eye's will be on you once you step into the door. Please pleasee pleasee, remember that because, first impressions will last forever and you can either leave with friends or enemies. It is all up to you!

4. Speak slowly and precise.
You are given time on stage for a reason. Take advantage of it and shine. You want the audience and judges to hear every single word so, pronounce every word clearly.

5. Have COMFORTABLE HEELS that you can walk in. Enough said.

Grammarly yours, MsRandomKitty ;*

You ready for 2013's New Year's Resolutions

Why do I torture myself?!

http://www.highschoogle.com/a-students-point-of-view-on-stress-school-and-lots-of-homework/

Before you guys get all worry and stuff, I am referring to me being sleep deprived.. because of :
1. Late night txting
2. Facebook (We all do this)
3. Youtube
4. PROCASTINATION ( MY BIGGEST WEAKNESS)

As school progresses so does the amount of homework I retain. At the beginning of the year we all make mini resolutions such as : Less Facebook, No texting pass a certain time, or finishing homework before you leave school. HAHA well at least I did. Of course, I was really good with this guidelines and continued them out for a good couple of months/weeks. Slowly as time went on I became more lenient on my boundaries and allowed more time for texting and facebook. As I was doing that the amount of homework I completed at home begin to decrease (GASP!). Thus beginning my morning rush to complete 3 classes worth of homework in the hour I have before 1st period.

I highly do NOT recommend this method , it only works for a little before your stress level increases and you begin to get gray hairs like me... YES I am getting old. Legit found a gray hair and I completely understand why.

LOL and are my teachers the only teachers that say: Just spend an extra 20 minutes reviewing what we did in class. Hahaha sure after I spend 1 hour doing your homework and the homework for my 5 other classes and the extra 20 minutes that each teacher wants me to spend on their individual class. As if 50 minutes of class time is not enough. HASHTAG Highschool Problems.

Colour Bloc Launch Party



 Last week Amelia of Colour Bloc hosted an exclusive launch party at the Italian and totally chic restaurant, Stella, located in the heart of South End. With an amazing location, the guest were welcomed to come right in and feel at ease with one of the many Colour Bloc signature cocktails.  


Impeccably decorated, Amelia left her mark on the room with elegant decor. I loved the simple but also elaborate "Colour Blocs", candles, etc. as depicted below.

This is the menu of the many different cocktails offered that night. Of course, being a high school student on a school night, I stuck to Sprite and Virgin fruity drinks ;)




Some of the artwork on display at the show.


This event being my first that is centered around art, I feel motivated to explore more. I could tell you loads about fashion and cloths, but I feel compelled to share with you guys more art galleries from New England. Especially after meeting and conversing with so many talented people, such as Amelia of Colour Bloc.



For business inquiries or if you would like me to cover your event please contact me via email: semirahdolan@yahoo.com

I also value my readers feedback. So drop me a little note in the comment box below! :)

All photos were snapped by me unless otherwise noted.

DIY 20's HairStyle: Finger Waves

http://namastetimes.com/2012/07/24/finger-wave-hairstyles/
My try with the Finger Waves, Rad right?? ;)

 Finger Waves are actually simple curls to achieve and can be achieved by most types of hair, when giving the right products and instructions. Here are some step-by-step instructions:


Step 1 : If you have curly/thicker hair, like me then... What I did was a wash and blow dry. After, I straightened my hair with a flat iron before I began. For thinner hair, avoid using loads of lotion and hair products. This weighs down the waves. The goal is to give your hair the right amount of weight to maintain the curls.
Step 2 : Decide what side you want your part on and part your hair with a wide tooth comb. Try to create a precise and straight part. Your hair should be smooth at this point. 
Step 3: Put your hair into pin curls and sit under a blow dryer for about 30 minutes. Take out clips after 30 minutes.
Step 4 : Use a comb and comb hair lotion through out your hair. The hair store has many hair lotions and if you are lucky you can find one specific for finger waves.
Step 5 : Now shape your hair by using the comb. You will have to create the volume needed for the finger wave hairstyle from the front partition of the hair. Make sure your hair is smooth as you comb it. The bumps do not have to be precise, remember this hair style is not perfect. Sometimes, the waves will fall into place. 
Step 6 : Use booby pins or duck clips to keep the waves close to the scalp.
Step 7 : Follow the directions to create the rest of the finger waves. If you can’t do the ones on the back, ask a friend for some help.
Everyone, has different results and practice makes perfect. So... Happy Finger Wavingg!

OOTD: Emotional Expression

Today, after school while walking home in the pouring rain, I had the sudden urge to use the gloomy weather to my advantage. Plus, I wanted to incorporate my Hello Kitty into this blog post. In order to do that, I put together this outfit for the evening. It is really bold and reverberates my happy mood. I really want to emphasize HAPPY MOOD because, after receiving good grades on all of my quizzes/tests today I deserve a little color pop splurge! No judgement :D 
K
If this outfit didn't have that jean jacket, I'd say it would have been not as sexy!


My Allure fashion mag and I smoozing up for this photo opp. I really love how the color of the letters on the magazine match my skirt! :)


The fact that I risked my life to do a photo shoot on a hill, in the MUDD, proves my undying love for you guys!

Boston Fashion Week 2012

Amazing and Vibrant colors to look forward to in the spring! Although, I am noticing an increase in vibrant color pea coats and fall sweaters. The traditional beige jacket has turned into orange, red, and even blue!

My eyes were always immediately drawn to the unique lip stain colors of the models. Even though they were abnormal colors you wouldn't wear on a normal day, I am beginning to reconsider my options. I think the baby blue look is rad!

Personally, I loved this dress because, it has the same features from the dress I designed with Sondra Celli.

Catalyst for the Boston Attitude!! 

Dramatic pose needed for dramatic lips.


Grammarly yours, MsRandomKitty ;*

Looking forward to more fashion shows this year!

Sh*t IB Students Have To Do


Today was super chill ;* I loved it!


If you have any suggestions as to what IB/honors torture I should add to the list, then please comment below. I want to make sure I capture it all.

Here we go, IB/Honors students.....

  • We "procrastinate" by doing less important homework!

  • You will learn to smile when you fail because, the teacher expects that and there is no negotiating!

  • 50% grade on an assignment feels like you have accomplished something good in life, sort of like a 99% in middle school on your friday quizzes.

  • Social life.. haha what??! Doesn't exist.

  • Weekends are now devoted to CAS hours AKA community service.
  • Sleep, yes, that is a privilige.

... LOL, ok I myself need to start my homework tonight instead of writing this blogpost. Just because tomorrow is Friday, does not mean anything! I probably have 3 pop quizzes -_- #MyIBLife
