Fall Trends that we LOVE!!!

I absolutely adore back-to-school time.  All the stores have sales. Boots are back, long sleeves are in, and holy moly do the sight of leggings and fall colors make me weak in the knees.  Because we don't have enough space to put all of our favorites, we thought we would highlight just a few of our favs.  All items are under $100 thus proving that looking good doesn't have to break the bank.  You won't be spending your whole allowance trying to keep up with this seasons latest trends.
Sweaters, jackets, scarves, oh my!!!  Check out these fall trends teens are rockin' this back-to-school season:

HELP!!! My parents don't approve of my friends!!!

What do you do when you really like your friend...but your parents really don't? It's a tricky situation—on one hand, your parents want the best for you, and they're only trying to look out for you. On the other hand, they don't know your friend as well as you do.
Maybe your parents have pointed out that your friend didn't thank them when they took you both out to eat, or that her grades aren't the best. Those things may be true, but they don’t necessarily mean she's a bad person. Nobody's perfect, after all. In that case, let your parents know that you're aware of her faults. Then, tell them about her strengths. Why do you like hanging out with her? Your parents want you to be happy, so if they see that your friend makes you happy, they're more likely to feel positively towards her and give her another chance.
Have your parents ever said they didn’t like one of your friends? What did you do?

Election 2012
Congratulations to President Obama on being elected to his second term as President of the United States. Now that the election is over, you may wonder what all of the fuss was about.  Here is a breakdown of what both candidates were promising if elected to be POTUS (President of the United States).  If you could have voted for President, who would you have choose? 

President Obama, the Democratic candidate, promised to:

  • Invest in education, small businesses, clean energy, infrastructure, and tax cuts for companies that bring jobs back to the U.S.
  • Cut taxes for the typical middle class family.
  • Develop every available source of American-made energy—including oil, gas, clean coal, wind, solar, biofuels, nuclear - and take steps to protect our climate.
  • Cut college tuition costs and make financial help available to more students.
  • Improve Medicare to help more senior citizens get medical care.
  • Help immigrants who want to become citizens.

Mitt Romney, the Republican candidate promised to:

  • Make the United States less dependent on foreign energy sources by increasing access to U.S. sources of oil, gas and coal.
  • Give every family access to great schools and teachers.
  • Provide access to affordable higher education. 
  • Focus on job training programs that will make it easier for people to get good jobs.
  • Lower the deficit by cutting federal programs other than the military.
  • Replace Obama's health care law with his own health care program.
If you could have voted for president, who would you have voted for?
