Fashion is passion.
People often say beauty is
on the inside, and, while
that may be true in many
ways, why limit oneself
from bringing that beauty
to the outside? Whatever
you feel on the inside,
there is a way to express
it to the world through your
own sense of style. Sharing
your inner beauty with the world
through your hair, clothing, jewelry,
shoes, or nail color can give you a sense of individuality and
confidence to achieve the dreams and goals you hold on
the inside. It also lets people know, at first glance, what you
deem as important and who you believe you are.
I used to think fashion was about the trendiest, most
expensive name brand clothing, wearing my hair like the
“cool girls” (or trying…I always felt I fell a little short), and
reading Vogue magazine. Not anymore. The way I feel
when I put on my combat boots with a skirt and a pair of
bright, striped socks now is nothing short of exhilaration.
When I walk down the street and see NOBODY else dressed
like me is when I know I have achieved my true self. When
my 2-year-old daughter refuses to wear what I like and
instead wears what she chooses, she reminds me that she is
already her own person and needs to express herself in her
own way. When I decided to have dreadlocks and my mom
asked me what “possessed” me, I knew I wasn’t possessed,
just doing what felt right…for me.
Some things are always in style. Good hygiene, cleanliness,
and knowing that you care about your health and your body
will always make you feel good. For some, fitting in is part
of what drives them to want to be a part of the community.
For others, wanting to stand out is what makes them tick.
From the stores we visit, to the food we eat, to our choice of
transportation…if you choose your style based on your own
values and beliefs, you will always be fashion-forward. And
if you’re just not sure yet…we’re here to help!

Here are some ideas to help you satisfy those cravings and make healthier choices If you are having a sweet tooth grab some fruit and a modest amount of cool whip and get to dipping .

The people of ancient Greece told stories of the gods, goddesses, and heroes that they worshiped. These stories became known as myths, and they explained why things happened that ancient science couldn’t explain.
Eurydice was an extremely beautiful wood nymph who was originally very shy by nature; at least until Orpheus sang to her and his enchantingly beautiful song altered the fact that Eurydice was shy, and thus Orpheus & Eurydice got married as a result of Orpheus performing his enchanting music.
Shortly after their wedding, Eurydice was bitten by a venomous snake and was taken to the underworld as a result of her death. Orpheus begged and pleaded with the gods that they would allow him to bring Eurydice back from the underworld, and they granted him a chance to return her to his arms. Pluto, who was the ruler of the underworld, made a deal with Orpheus & Eurydice that they would be given free passage out of the underworld provided that they never look back behind them on their way out. So the deal was made, and all went very well until Orpheus walked out of the underworld, then looked back at Eurydice. That’s when Pluto said “Sorry Orpheus, deal broken, she’s mine now”. Orpheus was heartbroken by the loss of Eurydice, and was soon killed by a tribe of women from Greece who put his head on a pedestal, after removing it from his body.
Now Orpheus’s severed head sings the song of misery & regret for all eternity. The moral of this story is: If you make a promise, make sure that you keep it, or you will suffer the consequences.

The 1980’s were a decade of new music
and new music groups and some older
groups doing new songs. Other types
of music were invented during this
decade. I was a kid back then, so these
songs have always been special to me.
Three of the songs were in movies. The two
songs by Huey Lewis and the News were in
Back to the Future. The song Ghostbusters
was the title song in the movie Ghostbusters.
