I am an aspiring journalist and model and I have a bit of experience writing for my school newspaper and doing a few photoshoots for fashion and makeup.

I dress both “high” and “low”, since fashion is about personal style and self expression, not about how much money you have to spend.

I believe that as Bill Blass, an American fashion designer, once said, “Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” However, when developing one’s personal sense of style, people learn from each other, at least as much as they learn from the fashion media. This is especially true when, like me, one is still in high school, where style and fashion inspiration is a shared experience.

  3. Hello,

    It is nice to meet you here. You have got an interesting blog. I notice that you have followed my blog. I would like to thank you for that. I hope my blog posts do not disappoint you. But please let me know if they do though, you are as free as a bird.

    And about following your blog… so….., if I am following your blog, like, uhmmm…..right now… then that means I’d be following the next Canadian supermodel covering American Vogue, just like Lara Stone?

    Awesome! 🙂

    • Here’s HOPING! I will enjoy your blog for sure, if it is anywhere near as terrific as your comments on my blog 🙂

        It is going to be a great thing when an aspiring international writer meets an aspiring international supermodel the first in the Blogosphere, and then meet a couple years later in, where, The Academy Award or Golden Globe Award, eh? 🙂

  10. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I worked on all my newspapers through High School etc and really thought I would pursue Journalism , but became a nurse instead .Go figure. I then retired and am now writing again..I guess I am coming around full circle! Alesia

    • That is really interesting to hear your story–it gives me more perspective in thinking ahead to how my life could be when I hear other people’s stories. I enjoy writing so much right now.

      • I wish I had written when I was nursing. I had so many funny and crazy events in my career. : ) I share mostly about LIFE on my blog lately , but its been fun. Alesia

        • Blogging is so supportive and encouraging–the people who do it are.

          • You are absolutely right. Most of us are not in it for the $. Alesia PS: nice photo.

          • Thank you! Are you on Instagram by any chance? YOUR profile picture made me wonder. I am @something_cliche

          • yes. I do have instagram. I think the link is on my about me page. YOU can look for it on my wordpress page down on the right side. I do have so photos on it but have not done much with it later but you can probably see some photos of my family! : )

  11. Just curious, what’s the significance of the “t”s in your title at the top? They’re a different colour.

  12. Hello Amatterofinstinct,
