The Top That Didn’t Fit So Well: One Size Fits All

Now I know we have came across some stores that many of their clothes is a one size fits all size. Now me being an aspiring model and on the skinnier side, most of the time this works out for, because this “one size fits all” is usually a label for skinner girls. Which I do not like very much. I am a firm believer that if you are a designer or a clothing store, that one size fits all should not being something you should be selling your clothes as. It is basically saying, if you’re not this size, similar to the model wearing it, then too bad you can’t buy this shirt. I see it almost as a way of discrimination. You shouldn’t make something that says one thing and do the complete opposite. There is a video I have watched and it is of a few girls who all have different body types and they try on a piece of clothing that is for one size fits all. On each girl the clothing looks different and sometimes uncomfortable, and nothing how it looked on the model, and the customer is hoping it would fit on them the same way.

But it doesn’t, I encourage you to go to to youtube and watch how all different girls with different body types try one this one shirt that is ONE size. Like who comes up with this size anyways? But this is just another way to separate others rather then celebrating everyone and making them happy and comfortable in their own skin.

Beauty Tips: Hair Care Edition

  1. In the Shower: Condition Ends and Comb through
    1. Now I am sure most of you know, when you shampoo your hair conditioner is just as important. When you condition, it best to start at the ends and work your way up the shaft, so that your scalp doesn’t become too greasy. After you distributed the conditioner through your hair try to leave it on for about 3-5 mins. I like to wash my hair first so that the conditioner can stay on as long as possible. Then just before rinsing it out, take ย wide tooth comb and gently comb through your hair to take out any tangles, so when you get out you’ll have little to no tangles!!
    2. Patting is Key
      1. When you get out of the shower most of us rub out hair and skin dry. But this is no bueno. It is best to pat your hair dry and squeeze out excess water and live your hair to air dry(until you blow dry or not). Now that your hair is done, you can pat down the rest of your body. This helps retain moisture and keeps your skin from drying out!
    3. Leave in Products
      1. Right after I dry off from the shower I like to put leave in conditioner all throughout my hair and a bit of oil, usually moroccan, or any other kind of hair oil to your liking. Then I like to let that soak in until i’m ready to blow dry! Also don’t forget to use a heat protectant when flat ironing or blow dry!. My favorite I always use is by tresemme!
    4. Sleeping!
      1. When going to sleep I know for many of us, hair can get tangled, damaged, and even break off. Some solutions to this is that after you finish styling your hair after showering, or if you just wanna air try, I say try some protective hair styles to sleep in. Such as braids! Braids are so helpful in keeping your hair in place and from getting tangled and you wake up with such pretty waves! Another solution is buying a silk pillow or silk hair bonnet. Silk helps to keep the hair form rubbing together and rubbing against any rough surface causing bad friction. I’ve tried all three and it has been super helpful.

What You Didn’t Know About Chocolate

Some of our favorite candy bars come from Hershey’s, Nestle, and Mars. Every since we were little we would ask our mothers to buy it for us, and we grew up around these candy companies for years.

But little did you know that these companies have been holding back a huge secret even I was incredibly shocked by. It may not change the way you feel about buying your favorite candy bars, and it may remain in the back of your mind the next time your out at the store buying candy.

You may or may not know that these companies have such low prices for their products is because they travel to outside of the United States to countries in Africa and others and offer workers long hours and low pay. And many of these workers are children. As for making chocolate many times these children have to travel far on foot, cut down the cocoas, and carry pounds back to the factory to be processes. Children do this day in an day out just to make a living, an just to make sure that we can in indulge in our oh so loved chocolate.
