    • I assume you mean blog everyday, but correct me if I’m wrong πŸ™‚

      1. Form a blawg
      – There are tons of great platforms like blogger and wordpress that are great places to get started.
      2. Make your blog look ah-mazing
      – This is cuh-rucial. Even if you have the world’s most ah-mazing posts, people won’t come if your blog looks generic and crappy.
      3. Stay dedicated
      – This may mean doing homework in study hall instead of oogling your crush so you can awnser blawg comments.
      4. Don’t get obsessesd
      – Remember you have a life! While page views are awesome, they won’t help you get into collage. Have a good balance of things.
      5. Have fun
      I hope this helped πŸ™‚
      Also, I’d love to see your newly formed blog. Send me a link, and I’ll follow you and maybe give you some feedback.

      Stay fabulous,

  1. I’m going into the 7th grade and I’m really happy! I Made cheerleading and had good grades and was in the school musical! But I want to know how to make people notice me more I really wanna make everyone say WOW on the first day back!:) please help!☺

    Sincerely,destiny ❀

    • Congrats girlie!

      Here’s my advice πŸ™‚

      1. Look great
      – It never hurts to look extra fabulous for your return back to school. Get a pedicure (or DIY), some ah-dorable new outfits, and maybe some new hair products.
      2. Stay organized.
      – To keep those stellar grades and all those cheerleading practices in order, use a planner (Vera Bradley makes a great one. Or just pick one up at Target) and write everything down. It also never hurts to clean out your backpack once a week too.
      3. Get toned
      – Summer is a great time to start eating healthy and working out! Start now, and wow your coach plus that cute guy in your homeroom.
      4. Walk like you own the place.
      – People notice confidence, believe me. Be sure to smile, stick to your princples, and stay positive.

    • Puh-lease, nobody is better then me πŸ˜‰

      But if you want the best advice possible, some more info about this “alpha” would be fabulous.

      Not like stalkerish or anything, but just some basic info. Puh-lease avoid using real names and places as that’s an easy way to get people on your bad side.

      Reply back ASAP for the best adice. Thanks! πŸ™‚

  2. Ok she’s super rude but hides it well she doesn’t include others she’s rich and pretty all the boys love her and the teachers think she’s perfect and she get’s straight A’s.

    • First off, she’s nawt perfect. Everyone has a flaw(s). Some are just less obvious then others.

      Here’s what you should do this summer
      * Make some connections. Being nice to everyone (even the LBR’s) is an easy way to get some popularity. Hit up the hot spots in your area (maybe the local Starbucks) to find new friends.
      * Get toned. Summer is a great time to start eating healthier or working out. Green tea is ah-mazing for you (the Tazo green tea is delish) and be sure to stay hydrated by drinking tons of water.
      * Work it. You have got to come back looking fab. Some new outfits, great hair and light makeup (for example, just use neutral shimmery eyeshadow, primer, mascara, BB cream, blush and lipgloss/tinted lip balm)
      * School. Manage your time well when it comes to homework (planners are great), check over every thing twice and don’t be scared to hire a tutor. Be nice to teachers (some cookies for Christmas never hurt).
      * Massie touches. Setting out your outfit the night before is a huge time saver. You could also have a signature scent. DONT cry in public either.

      I hope this helps πŸ™‚

      As for cliques, don’t worry about it. You’ll find a great group of friends, you just have to keep looking.

  3. 1. Crush πŸ™‚ how can I get him to notice and talk to me?
    2. Back to school! I need to be so Alpha (last year in 6th, let’s just say I wasn’t the Alpha of the class…)
    3. Wardrobe! In-expensive ah-dorable stores (Massie ah-proved), how to look amazing and flawless (which I am sooo nawt), etc…
    4. I’m on a major budget, but I love shopping πŸ™‚ How can I get new stuff without the big price tag ?
    Thanks chica πŸ™‚

  4. Hey Mass,

    I need some advice on the little things. The mini details.
    Such as nail polish (brands and colours)
    and Makeup like Lipgloss, eye shadow, mascara, ect

    Thanks!

    • Hey Girlie πŸ™‚

      First off all, fabulous question!

      As for brands, I suggest trying out different things to see what works for you. I love Revlon lip gloss for example but I’m not a big fan of their mascara. Read beauty blogs online to see what works for other people.

      And here are some of my favorite brands…

      Drugstore….
      Neutrogena- A great skincare company. I personally love their Pink Grape fruit Oil free skin cleansing wipes, Mouisture Smooth Color sticks and their Pore Refining Exfoliating cleanser.
      Rimmel. I personally haven’t tried much from this company, but I love their Glam Eyes Masacra.
      Maybelline- Well known for their ah-mazing Baby Lips, it’s Rocket Volume Mascara , Color Show nail polish and Eye Studio color tattoo are fantastic.
      Dove- Their Dry Shampoo is fabulous!
      Soft Lips- Best budget lip gloss!
      Garnier- The Daily Care line and Triple Nutrtion hair care lines are fabulous!

      Higher Priced-
      Urban Decay- The most ah-mazing eyeshadows and eyeliner I’ve ever tried! Their Naked Skin Beauty Balm is also fantastic.
      Essie- The cutest polish names! I love the Luxe Effects top coats and the cuticle oil.
      TIGI Bedhead- Their Curl contour cream is fabulous for curly hair.
      OPI- Another fabulous polish company! Their Liquid Sand polish is to die for!
      Bath and Body works- Ah-mazing smelling body butters. What’s not to love?

      That’s about all I can think of for right now. If you need more suggestions feel free to ask again πŸ™‚

    • Hey girlie πŸ™‚

      I used to have glasses (I play a lot of sports, so I switched to contacts) so I know what you mean.

      Before Anything- Make sure the frame suits your face shape and make sure they fit your face right.
      – No matter how cute the frames are, if they don’t flatter your face they won’t look good on you.
      – Also, always keep them clean! Dirty glasses look gross!
      – As for eye makeup, keep a balance. None makes you look washed out while too much is a complete don’t.
      Swiping on some shimmery beige/gold shadow and adding mascara can make your eyes pop.
      – Avoid Transtion lenses. They take forever to turn dark and most of the styles are tacky. Get some prescription sunglasses instead.

      I hope this helped πŸ™‚ If you need extra advice, feel free to ask.

    • Hey girlie,

      Wonderful question BTW.
      I personally love layering πŸ™‚ But it doesn’t suit my body type very well (I’m short) so I typically avoid doing it.
      But if it looks fab on you, then go for it πŸ™‚

      Stay fabulous,

    • Hey girlie πŸ™‚

      It’s not a dumb question at all. To make a smiley face, sad face, etc. , just do the same icons you would on your phone/AIM/etc. WordPress will automatically turn it into an icon.

      For example- : + ) = πŸ™‚

      Think of the two dots as eyes and then use the next letter for the mouth. Experiment a little bit to see what you can come up with or look around using google.

      Hope this helps! If you need more advice, feel free to ask.

  5. How to get revenge on a mean girl? I mean the girl isn’t popular like no one likes her. But I just don’t have any good ideas for revenge.. And also. I need some how to be a classy polished alpha! Thanks! Xoxox, destiny.:)

    • Hey girlie,

      Great question πŸ™‚

      Revenge honestly, isn’t the best route. You can really end up hurting someone’s feelings and getting in serious trouble. If you must, flirting with her crush is one option and won’t get you in trouble.

      As for being a classy polished alpha, here are some of my fave tips.

      Make sure you always look fab and be prepared for anything.
      – After gym class, keep perfume, a hairbrush, etc. in your bag to freshen up after class
      – Study for any tests, quizzes, etc. This not only improves your grade but keeps you from looking clueless.
      – Keep your locker organized and cute! A mirror, dry erase board, shelves, etc. can keep your locker from getting messy. Not to mention, much more ah-dorable! http://lockerlookz.com/ has super cute supplies.
      – Avoid saying “does this make me look fat” or ” is my hair frizzy”. That makes you seem unconfident and un alphalike.

      Need more advice? Let me know and I’ll reply back ASAP πŸ™‚

      Stay fabulous,

  6. hi sorry I haven’t been on lately my laptop broke 😦 I saw your comment and want to ask u wats a AIM account
    bye chica πŸ™‚

    • Hey girlie πŸ™‚
      Glad to hear that it’s now working! But an AIM account is an instant messaging service that makes it easier to talk to people online. You can get one on AOL.com. BTW- My AIM screen name is listed on my contact moi blog page.

      Can’t wait to chat with you! πŸ˜€
      xx MBOB

  7. hi chica
    at wat time are u on AIM I always look for u to be on but ur never on oh and its not Giselle.hernandez8 its Giselle.hernandez9 sorry for the mix up
    later chica:)

  8. I’m going into 6th grade and I need to be Alpha any tips. Also there’s this boy who I’ve been great friends with since kindergarten but this year I started hanging out with another guy (btw he’s hilarious ) and the time we weren’t hanging out it seems like we’ve drifted and I kinda like him as more than a friend I just want to go back to being besties

    • Hey girlie πŸ™‚

      Great questions btw-

      1. Being alpha
      – Avoid buying clothes from Justice and/or Limited 2. That just screams tacky 6th grader.
      – Be organized. As an alpha, you should be prepared for anything. Write everything down in a planner, use color coded folders, etc.
      – As for the being prepared part- keep spare tampons/pads in your backpack, some frizz cream, a comb, blotting sheets, bandaids and tissues. Extra school supplies are a must.
      – Be nice towards teachers. While you don’t need to be a “teachers pet”, it never hurts. After all, they can change your 92.5 into a 93 πŸ˜‰
      – Have your locker combo down!! There is nothing worse then forgetting your combo on the first day!

      2. Sadly, friendships do change. My guess is that he either likes you back and is too scared to admit it, or maybe you guys are just growing Next time you see him, say something like ” Kelly said
      we would be so ah-dorable together.”, then watch his reaction. This is a great way to tell if he likes you and/or is a fab liar.

      I hope this helped πŸ™‚

  9. hey chica can u make the back to school post I know ur busy sorry 😦
    please later chica πŸ˜‰

    • Hey Ramata!

      That’s so sweet of you to ask! For my new blog’s name, I combined two things that I love (Macaroons + the designer Marc Jacobs) to create a fun little name. There are so many diff. ways to come up with a blog name, but it’s important to stick to what your blog will be about (if it’s a fashion blog, don’t have a name about cooking for ex.) & have fun with it! Also if your name happens to have some alliteration in it, that’s even better.

      xo Amanda
      ps- You can find me on my new blog Macaroons & Marc Jacobs. Good luck with your blog!
