So cheers for accomplishing my bachelor's degree (finally!). Two, finally pursuing graduate school and currently taking up my master's degree in psychology. Well, I really never thought to make it this far. Thank you 2015!

Wonderful world

27 December 2015

I see trees of green, red roses, too,
I see them bloom, for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue, and clouds of white,
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky,
Are also on the faces of people going by.
I see friends shaking hands, sayin', "How do you do?"
They're really sayin', "I love you."

I hear babies cryin'. I watch them grow.
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

- Louis Armstrong, What A Wonderful World

So if you don't have it in your budget to go to the salon for your prom hair style than the natural style may be best for you. In order to create this style you simply wash your hair and allow it to air dry slightly. Next you can use styling cream throughout your hair, and use the flat-iron to get your hair perfectly straight. To give it an extra special touch you can add a slight curl to the ends and you are ready to go. Some even choose to leave one or two strands in the front to give it a nice added touch. This is just one of the many hair styling options than you can choose from.

Hello. I've been away for weeks because I was busy at school. We have a lot of requirements at the grad school and grad school's has been a hell! I have one more requirements and two more exams to finish 'til the semester break. Luckily, I'm still surviving.

I want to finish my master's degree then maybe I could take up PhD in the future. It was always my dream of becoming a doctor. I have walked the path in getting a medicine degree but I guess, it wasn't for me. I might not become a doctor of medicine but I guess, my path is to become a doctor of philosophy someday (hopefully).

Beach wedding dresses x Cocomelody

18 November 2015

Beach wedding dresses have some of the most wide-ranging choices and are some of the most interesting dresses to choose from. Your choice of material, style, and color are almost unlimited. You have a lot more to pick from than just a traditional wedding dress.

Choosing the right beach wedding dresses from all the different styles of beach wedding dresses will of course depend on your choice of style for your beach wedding. Whether you decide on formal and elegant, casual and fun, or semi-formal or semi-casual you will be able to find a wedding dress or gown to fit the setting. Whatever style you choose will be very romantic and beautiful.

Formal weddings are usually considered to be the most romantic. With candles, flowers, and ribbons, you can set the stage even on a beach for what is considered a traditional wedding complete with the traditional dress. The long, flowing gown and veil blowing in the gentle breeze from the ocean, especially at night with the flickering candles, will be absolutely beautiful.

Should you decide on a more casual style of beach wedding you would probably have even more choices as to the type and color of your wedding dress. You could have a long, flowing caftan dress, or a short mini-skirt, or a waltz length dress of any color and style. There are so many different kinds of beach wedding dresses to choose from that it will be hard to make a decision.

A more casual wedding could involve you wearing a simple tunic style dress, or a mini-dress. Maybe even a skort. There are many more choices for beach wedding dresses in this category. You would probably be more comfortable in something casual on the beach in case you want to sit in the sand and watch the waves after the ceremony. And it would probably make it easier on your guests to wear something more casual on the beach. You might consider having a beach party afterward for your guests.

In between those two options you have your regular dresses. Something like a cocktail dress or Sunday dress. It could be a bright solid color or a pretty flowery patterned dress. It could be waltz length, tea length, or long. Either would be appropriate for a beach wedding. Either could be classified as semi-formal or semi-casual. So the guests would be dressed appropriately in almost whatever they chose to wear.
