I'm sure all of you have experience some sort of fear from being scared of ants, to being scared of failing an exam. Over the past months since I've moved here to Singapore, stress has been building up every day. Since my exams are coming up very soon, I thought that it would be a great time for me to talk about the subject of 'studying' and 'school'. 

A lot of people may have different experiences from school. Some people might find school completely easy, and they get great grades without even trying. I don't understand how someone can do that, don't get me wrong I would love to be someone who has that kind of brain, but not everyone is given one like that. I'm sure a lot of high schoolers like me are facing exams soon, and I know this blog post is going down the more miserable side, but I realised that a lot of you might need some motivation to put the effort in to get where you want to be. I'm not only talking about exams it could be anything, for example trying to lose weight for the summer that could be a goal for you. 

So here are just a few motivational quotes, that I hope will make you smile, or motivate you in some way.

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

- Gandhi

“The best way to predict your future is to create it.”

- Abraham Lincoln 

Has there been something on your mind lately that needs some kind of motivation?

Lifestyle blog?

I know I haven't been active for these past months, and I know thats a crime in blogging world. I have been focused on my youtube channel a lot and trying to grow it, and I really enjoy working on it and making videos every week. Through out these months I've been thinking that I'm going to change the niche of my blog and make it something thats altered to fit who I am. I'm not saying that I don't like fashion blogs or writing about fashion, I just feel that I would enjoy and feel more of myself if I make this blog more interesting to read than just a fashion blog. I think I've been pressured by the look and writing of other blogs to be on their level, but I've realised that I would have a lot more fun if I made this a lifestyle blog and wrote about things I love that are not just fashion.

Just an update on whats been going on in my life. School has been really stressful lately I have exams coming up soon, and as you all probably have experienced the pressure people put on you to just get a good score, a number. I am currently on spring break, which is a relief because I need a break from school and everything. I am going somewhere overseas but I prefer not to say where I'm going. All I'm going to say that it is a beautiful and tropical island. That means lots of reading, swimming and just relaxing, which is an essential for me now.

As for youtube, I recently hit 1000 subscribers and that was a big achievement for me, 1000 might not seem a lot for other youtubers but I'm proud of my self for even getting up to 50. Just the thought of someone clicking on your video and actually watching it shocks me. I never thought someone would give up time to watch one of my videos. Whoever is thinking of starting a channel definitely should, I was extremely scared before but if you enjoy it then I say go for it.

How have you all been?

The 56th Annual Grammy Awards

It is my duty as a blogger to write about the Grammys, the biggest night of the music industry. I am always amazed by how different the fashion is every year, and a different star pulls off something even more incredible, or not so incredible. From Suits to beautiful gowns. 

What is a grammy blog post without taylor swift or Beyonce. Of course Beyonce is queen B but I think that taylor swift stole that from her this year with her stunning dress Gucci premiere dress, and pairing it with Lorraine Schwartz Jewels. Gold and bronze colours in my opinion are the best colours for these red carpet events. It really helps you stand out from all the other spectacular dresses. Taylor also fit the dress perfectly, and her hair perfectly complimented the rest of the outfit. Don't get me wrong, I still think Beyonce's dresses is absolutely stunning! She comes in every year looking like she was born with it. She is wearing Michael Costello and pairing with Jennifer fisher jewels. I've heard that people are saying that beyonce's dress is more on the risky side. That is absolute nonsense, her dress fit perfectly on her, and people are complaining to get a story out of it. Also, If you haven't seen Beyonce's performance at the grammy's you're missing out.

 I said before that a bronze coloured dress would really make a star shine even more. Well, Ariana grande proved me wrong, Her dolce Gabbana Dress is so different from what anyone would wear to the Grammys, and I'm proud that she kept true to her own style.  Nobody would have ever thought of wearing a floral dress like Ariana to the Grammy's. In my opinion, I think Ariana is the only one who can pull it off. It fits, her music, personality and her TV personality. 

Before ending this blog post, P!INK comes out with another amazing performance. and her incredible talent does not let her down. She is one of the most talented people in hollywood, and she deserves everything. I couldn't imagine anyone else doing that and how she hang from the ceiling was incredible. Of course I will have to mention her beautiful dress from Johanna Johnson. However, I think she could've gotten a dress that fitted her body more. 

Sorry for such late 'proper' blog post. I will try to update the blog as much as possible, and I will talk to you all in my next blog post!

My new youtube channel ♡

Hi everyone! I am so so sorry for not posting a blog post in so long, well now I'm back! I've been really busy with school work but now I'm back. As you can see above I have recently started a youtube channel. It took me a while to think of making one because I was scared if my friends would find out, but thats the process and I shouldn't let that stop me. I have always wanted to start making videos on youtube. I still remember the old days where me and my friend start a childish youtube with us paper puppets (I was a weird child). I hope all of you could go watch the video and subscribe to me if possible, and like the video if you want to! I would really appreciate that.

I will be posting regular posts, about my latest youtube videos, so look forward to that. Please if you can spread the word and I will be sure to post a video once every week!

What did you think of the video? any feedback?

The Green Raybans

dress, raybans, fashion blog, interview, blog

snow, sweater, fur, coat, winter, fashion blog, blog

Two best friends Eli & Nicole,  also known as 'The green raybans' started their blog in 2011. Just wanting to express their opinions about the fashion industry. Now their blog has grown through out the years, with readers all over. Just knowing that they living from across the world from each other, and still maintain a blog together is amazing. This is basically my first interview,  so I hope you all like it, enjoy!

What made you two have the idea of starting a blog together? 
We have been good friends since we met and it seemed like such a great idea to start a fashion blog! At the time of starting our blog, we both had developed a keen interest for writing and fashion so this blog seemed like a good platform where we could share our common interest for the industry and do what we love.

Fashion icon?
Nicole: Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington, Miranda Kerr and Rumi Neeley.

Eli: I would say that Audrey Hepburn is definitely my fashion icon, but I do adore plenty of other peoples fashion!

Favorite blog? 
There are heaps of blogs that I love reading, but our favourites would probably be FashionToast, HowTwoLive, and The Blonde Salad, BryanBoy, and Aurora Mohn.

What do you love about blogging? 
Nicole: There are so many things that I love about blogging, yet so many things I dislike about the industry as well. My favourite thing about blogging is being able to write about something I genuinely love and its so great to be able to share it and read all the different opinions from fellow bloggers as well. It's also great making friends with bloggers in the blogging community.

Eli: I love getting all the lovely comments, the fact someone actually notices really makes my day. 

Whats your opinion of your own sense of style?
Nicole: My style constantly changes but it has always remained very colourful, and full of prints.

Eli: In my opinion I have quite a simple, preppy and very girly sense of style. 

What is the typical blog post on your blog? 
Nicole: I love using polyvore as a medium for my posts so many of my posts usually include a polyvore set. But usually just runway and lifestyle coverage and things that inspire me.

Eli: I often blog about lifestyle and do outfit posts. 

Favorite designer brand? 
Nicole: I currently have a major love for Alexander Wang and Kenzo. 

Eli: I don't really have one particular favourite but some are Ralph Lauren, Elie Saab, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. 

What is your dream job?
Nicole: As cliched as this sounds for any fashion blogger, my dream job would definitely to be a fashion journalist working in New York City! But that's definitely a dream job since it's a very tough industry to get yourself into.

Eli: My dream job would be to work in either the fashion industry or finance.
