  • Fashion Maven: Find the right polish to make your nails pop

    I don’t know about you, but I consider nail polish more of an accessory than a makeup product. Up to this point in your life, you probably have tried every shade and every style of nail polish on the market, which is a good thing because you have a head start compared to the nail-polish-illiterate.
    The possibilities of nail painting are endless. In my opinion, the way to get the most beautiful nails of all is to use your imagination, to experiment and to practice until you get the manicure that you want.
    For the unmotivated, I have a few pre-conceived ideas for you to work with.
    As with anything else, begin with the basics. Start by washing your hands or feet very well for a few minutes with warm soap and water.

  • Grooving to the beat: Prom 2011

    The mere mention of the word prom can bring joy and giggles, or despair and nervousness.
    The normal thoughts revolve around where to take pictures, where to go to dinner, get the dress or tux and the ever-so-important date.
    Although one would never think of a dark, loud dance club with black lights and strobe lights as being part of prom, that exact setting became part of the Los Alamos High School Junior/Senior prom this year.
    The prom began at 9 p.m., but the festivities started well in advance as prom-goers, many of whom traveled to Española or Santa Fe, went out to dinner.

  • Fashion 411: Every shoe closet needs the basics

    Shoes: More Important Than You Thought
    I am a complete sucker for shoes. Honestly, if I could live in my heels, I would. But, of course, heels are hard to walk in and shoes are hard to find. I know, finding the right pair is a big dilemma, but I have a few tips that will land you the perfect pair.
    First of all, every shoe closet should consist of a few types of basic shoes. Flats, pumps, peep-toe heels, embellished heels, gladiator sandals and boots are the bare essentials.

    Dress Up

    A little girl skips around
    with nothing to do one afternoon.
    So she sneaks into the closet
    within her mother's room.

    She looks around at all the clothes
    of colors of all kinds.
    She giggles and claps with excitement
    as she sees what she can find.

    She lets her imagination swirl
    as she throws on a pink dress.
    She stands up straight with a book on her head
    -being a pretty pink princess.

    She puts on a raincoat and boots,
    twirls an umbrella on her shoulder,
    singing and dancing in the rain
    -like nothing can control her.

    A giant yellow sunhat
    a long belt and red sheet

  • Technology is gr8! Or is it?

    According to a quote by Mark Kennedy, “All of the biggest technological inventions created by man — the airplane, the automobile, the computer — says little about his intelligence, but speaks volumes about his laziness.” 
    Technology has become a big part of a teenager’s daily life. It allows teens to do things that were not even considered possible a few decades ago.
    Grandparents will tell their grandchildren overly exaggerated stories of how they walked so many miles to school in the snow because cars weren’t invented yet.
    Today, cell phones and computers provide instant communication, but has texting taken over teens’ lives?

    Ode to my thinking apparatus

    It’s up there … somewhere.
    I know it is,
    At least … I think so.
    Ever so often I wonder,
    And tap its encasing.

    It provides actions,
    Like smiles,
    And frowns, sometimes.
    It will always talk for me,
    But never out loud.

    It is pink and squishy,
    Like a piece of,
    Chewed up bubble gum.
    And I treasure it always,
    An important existence.

    It taps ten impatient fingers,
    And wiggles ten,
    Free little painted toes.
    It rolls two teasingly sarcastic eyes,
    And gushes gurgling giggles.

    And at the moment it,
    Is thinking about
