Overall bathing suit shopping can be stressful, but there are things to overcome the stress it causes. Try bringing a friend along for a second opinion. Also, during an interview with Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian, the girls stated “You have to know what suits your body best,’ said Kourtney. ‘Don’t buy what everyone else is buying.” added Khloé. Remember to be aware of your size, and to buy a suit that flatters you. Don’t compare yourself to others. You’re beautiful in your own way.
Aloha! The Island of Maui, Hawaii is the most beautiful place in the world. My family and I rode on a plane for 13 hours and arrived in Maui, Hawaii on May first. Although it was extremely long, it was definitely worth the flight.
In my opinion Maui, Hawaii is the nicest island of Hawaii. Palm trees take up every corner on the streets of Hawaii and Hibiscus flowers, the most beautiful flowers in the world are found in Hawaii are constantly blooming. Kuku flowers, pink cottage roses, and the most famous, Hawaiian flower which you will find in colors varying from orange, purple, pink and yellow.
Not only is the island a beautiful, the people make it so much more beautiful. Everywhere you would walk, there would be people with smiles on their faces, waving or just saying hello. Not only that, but the employees were especially friendly. They always make the tourists feel welcome and made sure that they were having a great time.
The sun is always shining in Hawaii and they haven’t gotten rain in 7 months, I guess that explains why the people are so friendly.
In Hawaii, there is something called getting “leid.” Getting “Leid” means that when you’re walking around in Hawaii, the Hawaiians put a fresh lei around your neck. There is a unique history to leis in Hawaii and the myth is that those beautiful flowers bring everybody automatically to a great mood.
The volcanoes, mountains, flowers, and the beautiful fresh, clear water can ensure you a great trip to Hawaii, I know I had the time of my life!

From the dawn of man, and till the end of time, there is one thing that has followed us through the ages; Beards. This facial growth has been a sign of wealth, power, masculinity, and honor.
Let’s get one thing straight, beards must be interpreted on a case by case basis and broad generalizations are often inaccurate.
Dihydrotestosterone is the hormone present in males responsible for facial hair and ironically hair loss. Most post-pubescent men can achieve a beard in time. Some men though still have trouble with it:
“I wish I could grow a full one, but it can be scruffy,” substitute teacher Mr. Duttera said.
Scientists believe that beards at one point served a practical purpose rather than modern aesthetics. Beards in early man could have been for warmth, and even for intimidation of rivals to show masculinity, similar to a male lion’s mane.
Fast forward to early civilizations, such as Rome, when a boy’s beard came in he was then considered a man. In ancient Rome and even in today’s Amish culture beards are a sort of trophy, and the removal of another man’s beard is considered disgraceful and the ultimate act of dishonor. In medieval times the touching of a man’s beard without permission was a reason to fight to the death in a duel.
Today, there has been a silent war in America against these furry faces. Recent studies have shown only 33% of american males have facial hair compared to 55% worldwide! It is also shown that women have suggested full bearded men to be only 66% as attractive as clean shaven men. There is some good news though, these same people interviewed said beards show a man is powerful, of higher status, and more respected. Beards are part of us, and no matter how much you try to get rid of them, they will always come back.

It’s that time of year again, when everyone is breaking out the Ugg boots and cute scarves that their grandmothers knitted for them. It’s sometimes hard to be fashionable when wearing that big bulky spacesuit of a coat, but here at Red Lion, students have found a way to look nice while also keeping warm this winter.
Whether it’s ankle booties, or thigh-highs, boots have become a very popular choice of footwear this season. Sophomore Mandy Walker said that she likes to wear boots because they are “warm and comfy.”
It seems that the Ugg boots will make it through another winter season this year. They are loved so much that they even make an appearance in the summer season.
Scarves are another winter classic. While keeping your neck nice and toasty, you can also spice it up a bit with fun designs and textures. No one can never go wrong with a scarf.
From bomber, parka, trench, or cropped, your choice in jacket can reflect a lot about your personality. It seem that no matter what type, jackets will always be in style. Northface jackets are very popular now. “It’s soft, warm and pretty,” said sophomore Jenna Innerst when asked why she likes her Northface jacket. The biggest decision to make this winter is whether to stick to the classics or try something new.
So take advantage of these last few months of winter to try out some of these fashion trends. Some might love them, and some might wish to stick with their old favorites. Either way, each person’s fashion choices, whether it be scarves, boots or jackets, are all great ways to express themselves this winter season.
