A word from Converse

I was out running yesterday... Which means staring at people as I crawl up a hill. I noticed a group of girls, about our age (Vans and I), wearing extremely tight, short clothing. Now, everyone is entitled to their own choice of clothing. I've been know to wear some really loud, badly fitting clothing on occasion (I did just buy some epic orange jeans, but they fit!)... These were healthy girls, tall and muscular, but they looked really pudgy in the clothes they were wearing. I knew one of the girls, we're not close friends, but I do know that she is very worried about her weight and it's very important to wear clothes that show off her body. So, these were cute clothes, but they were just the wrong size. And so here's my thought, find clothes that flatter you. No one cares what size you are, so why not wear the clothes that make you look good? Or the clothes you love...ORANGE JEANS!!! When you wear clothes that are too small for you (or to tight) it't not a good look. So buy clothes in your size that flatter you! Well, that's my word of advice! :) Xo, Converse

I'm really sorry... Because I'm lame

Hello there. Sorry. I've been meaning to write a post for the last few months and haven't gotten around to it, because I'm a loser :). My apologies to Vans and you all! Well. I thought I'd write about Facebook profile pictures. For those of you who don't have Facebook, a profile picture is just what shows up on your page in the top left corner-ish. It's supposed to be a picture of you, I guess, but if your like me it's either a really unflattering picture a friend took, or a picture you took yourself of, like, a tree (no kidding.) Well (I've noticed I say that wayyyyy to much...), I've noticed the new fad (okay, not so new fad...) is for girls who don't have a lot of self confidence to strike a pose wearing as little clothing as possible (ex. Wearing a bikini, while thrusting, uh, some parts of their body forward.) and use that. And some of the pictures ARE photoshopped. I mean, REALLY? Anyway, it's the people (because it's not always girls, who are doing this) without a whole lot of self confidence who do this. They assume it makes them look "cool & sexy" to their peers. If you're resorting to this sort of thing, please, please, find a hobby or a sport that your good at or enjoy. That's the sort of thing that should boost your self confidence, not a "sexy" picture. And, if you don't agree with me, just think of this. COLLEGES WILL BE LOOKING AT YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE. Aren't you even a bit worried that Ms. Admissions Officer is going to look at you "sexy" pictures and think, what a puffball. Because that's what she/he is going to think. There's nothing wrong with posting a picture of yourself, but really, there's no need to be "sexy", and it will bite you in the backside. Literally. (okay, not so literally, but I really wanted to write that.) So, yay. Hope you all are having a fabulous summer, and I will be back soon! Yay, Converse
