Sooo basically I was forced to move my blog due to some harassment and online bullying. I'm not announcing where I am moving to due to the fact that it would completely ruin the point of moving. So goodbye for now, and if any of you read this and find me again, welcome anew. <3

On Charisma...

Charisma. Noun. [kuh-riz-muh]. Noun. 

 1. a special personal quality or power of an individual making him/her capable of influencing or inspiring large numbers of people.
2. a quality inherent in a thing which inspires great enthusiasm and devotion.

Charisma is a very vital skill not only for Princesses and Lolitas, but anyone living in society as a human. Charisma is, in my opinion, a combination between confidence, courage, credibility, and grace that allows your words to appeal to large groups of people. If you have charisma, you have the power to make people believe, motivate, inspire, and give confidence to others. This makes many things in your life easier. Have a new idea to announce at a business meeting? Charisma. Job interview? Charisma. Running for office, both in school or legally? Charisma. Charisma is very important in many things in life.

Historically, women, upon coming of age, would be presented to all of the local bachelors in a debutant ball. She would be asked to dance by all of the men there. Everyone in this situation would need a healthy amount of charisma! Whomever is presenting the woman would need to convince the bachelors that she would make a good wife. Every man would be asking her to dance, thus, in a way, advertising themselves. Now how would it go if the young lady were to be too shy to dance with any of the men? Well, that just would not do! The point of the ball was to take the first steps into setting up a marriage for the young woman, and therefor she must allow herself to get to know all of the men at the ball.

Charisma can be attained in many ways. One way is to practice speaking to yourself in a mirror several times a week. Watch your posture, try not to stutter, and speak with a smile. Another, which is the way I am going about it, is to take a public speaking class. Although I did not actually sign up for the class as an elective (I was given it because the other elective I had chosen was either full or the time had coincided with another class I'm taking, however, I really admire the teacher, and it's only a half-year class, so I didn't bother trying to switch it.) Although I've only been in this class for about a month, I've already gotten a lot more charismatic. I'm naturally a very opinionated person, and in my blood, I am a peacemaker, therefor, it's always been that whenever I see something unjust or wrong, I speak up. That is much harder to do in this school as I really don't know anyone and it may come off as being aloof or elite. However, thanks to this class, I'm speaking up more than ever (however, that may just be do to the fact that pretty much all of the students in this school are extremely ignorant... hmm...)  Also, I've gotten better at speaking slowly, or quickly, depending on the situations. Generally, I've become a lot better at speaking to people both in public, and one-on-one. I've gained more charisma.

I'm sorry I've not been updating lately- life's been throwing me for loops all over the place. It's been hard. There's only a few places I feel safe, and none of them are here. Maybe I'll start posting poetry and short stories here, for the sake of uploading more? How would you feel about that?

5 Ideas for an Autumn Princess

1. Go apple picking in an outfit inspired by your favorite faerietale- Little Red Riding Hood or Sleeping Beauty.

2. Go to the many carnivals that take place during October- old carousels, Ferris wheels, and haunted houses beckon your way!

3. Dry leaves in books and then make collages out of them. Frame and hang for pretty seasonal artwork.

4. Host or attend a Halloween party- I'm attending two on the same night, in the same place! *My boyfriend's little brother's birthday party first, and then the "grown-up" party, still at their house, after- I'm very excited. ♥*

5. Explore the Halloween section of any department store- am I the only one that squees at nearly everything in a Halloween section? The goth in me just comes out full-swing! I want to get some of the realistic fake weapons they are selling at Target this year- I want the mace and shield!! Not for a costume, just to have, ♥, or for music videos! Also, I already bought a pack of glow-in-the-dark bats, and they are swinging from my ceiling! Did any of you used to have those glow-in-the-dark stars glued to your ceiling? I know I did!

Secret Spotlight #2

There were a couple of secrets in this week's post that mad me think, laugh, cry! <3 Sorry this is so late, but I was over my Prince's house all day. Also sorry for lack of updates. I just haven't been myself lately, I haven't been smiling I'll try to work on it some more, I promise.

This made me laugh. So much. I don't know a single person with a computer who hasn't illegally downloaded music, myself included. However, I have nothing against replicas, so.

This one didn't gross me out at all, as I was probably expected to- I laughed! A lot, actually- it was pretty much a giggle fest! I really enjoyed this secret, not because I agree, but because it makes me think of some of the outrageous fantasies and fetishes that people have. Not that it's a bad thing- there what makes things unique and fun!

Events: Brimfield Antique Fair

Today, I visited the Brimfield Antique fair's last event for 2010. The fair takes place in Brimfield, (where else?) Massachusetts, the second weekends of May, July, and September. I go every single event to buy teacups from the same vendor every time. I also buy other things, sometimes, but we mostly go to get teacups and wander around.

One of the many reasons I like going to the fair is that, seeing all the pretty furniture and decorations, I can think about my future with my prince. ♥  I often joke to the King and Queen, with, "This is what my house will be filled with when I 'grow up'..." teehee. ♥ Really though, I always find beautiful things at such amazing prices here! For instance, we found working stone fountains, some with lions and the like, or some with globes or fish, for only $95 USD each!! That's so inexpensive, for something so beautiful and tranquil....!

Yes, I'm just about lame enough to take a picture of myself in a mirror...
(Pardon my face, I was laughing at my father laughing at me for doing this. ha! also my face looks a bit chubby here.   owo   probably because I was looking down, at my phone screen. haha!)

This is what I wore today! I dressed for winter because my mother told me it was going to be cold and we were spending all day outside. >< First to a birthday party in a park, and then to the fair, so I dressed warmly.... at least I was comfortable, even though it wasn't cold at all. *laughs*

I wore a crimson dress, two pairs of black tights, black boots, a white coat, and a black headband.

I'll post more soon, probably tomorrow- I have a speech to write, a shower to take, and some serious sleep is needed to make it through tomorrow! Oh how I hate Mondays *laughs*

Secret Spotlight

So there was one secret in this week's Lolita Secrets that had me seriously laughing on the floor.

Here it is:

Now, first of all, my lol'ing has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with the picture. It's the text and the message that makes me laugh. For those unaware, Summer vacation is generally regarded as "noob season" because all of the schoolchildren (myself included, of course.) generally have more time to surf the internet, therefore there's an influx of new lolitas, irrelevant posts on EGL, and "itas". This secret is basically saying that "noob season" is almost over, with most schools beginning new terms, and teenagers, children, and young adults having less internet time, with classes and homework and all. It made me laugh in another way because I am pretty much the opposite of this. I post less during the summer, even though I am online more. I've honestly made one post to EGL this entire summer, as opposed to the maybe four I posted during the school year. I'm still reading the same amount of posts and blogs, but I'm just less active. It could be the heat. Also, I'm generally a lot less procrastinative during the school year, as you may or may not see once school starts this week.

So, what did you all think of this week's secrets, particularly this secret? I enjoyed this week's- nothing too "flame-y" or stressful.
