Priceless Prom Winners

Priceless Prom WinnersCongratz to the winners! You can help decide what they’ll wear to Prom by logging on and voting. Hope they have a wonderful time!

How the win helps: The time together is great, they say, but a paid-for prom has a real shot at perfection. Both teens work to pay for cell phones, cars, insurance and gas. Last year, Paul, 18, had to borrow money from his parents to cover prom costs, and he used his job at Pizza Hut in Winchester to pay them back. This year, Amber, 17, planned to wear an old pageant dress instead of buying a new one with her pay from her new job as a hostess at b.d.’s Mongolian Grill.

Introducing Prom Queen.TV

promx.jpgCheck it out here: Prom Queen TV

Gear Live reports:
Michael Eisner, former CEO of Disney, has announced the formation of Vuguru, a studio that will develop what they claim will be a “slickly written, produced, and acted Web video about love, gossip and betrayal.” In other words, his investment company, The Tornate, will be producing a professionally made YouTube soap opera.

Eisner feels that although YouTube has won the first battle in Internet TV, real media moguls will ultimately win the broadband war. His first show will be “Prom Queen,” a who-done-it with daily 90-second installments beginning April 2. You will find all 80 episodes on Vuguru.com, Ellegirl.com (a “Prom Queen” sponsor,) Veoh, and of course, YouTube.

    A Guide To Your Perfect Prom

    158816551501_aa180_sclzzzzzzz_.jpgCheck out these great tips on how to make your prom night fun and less stressful. This is a great article from Courier Journal and it’s an interview with Joanna Saltz, executive style editor of Seventeen magazine. She is quite an expert since you can say she literally “wrote the book”. That book is “Seventeen’s Guide to Your Perfect Prom — A Planner & Scrapbook”. Check it out!

    There’s no denying it, the prom is an enormous extravaganza for a high school student.

    That’s why Joanna Saltz, executive style editor of Seventeen magazine, decided to write a book about one of the biggest nights of a teen’s life. It’s called “Seventeen’s Guide to Your Perfect Prom — A Planner & Scrapbook” (Hearst Communications, 2007, $14.95).

    “Prom is a major milestone in a teenager’s life. … It is such a huge thing for a lot of our readers,” Saltz said. “Part of the mission with this book is to make sure that our readers understand that there is a lot of planning that goes into it, but it doesn’t have to be stressful.”

    The Heart Symbol

    heart.gifYou cannot deny the influence of romance on Proms and Formal Events. People sometimes fall in love at these events and the feeling of affection is almost everywhere you look as people dance and talk. A popular symbol used in decorating these is the Heart symbol. Usually red, it does appear in other colors. Since it looks nothing like the human heart have you ever wondered where it came from? What is it? The answer is that it’s still a mystery to the world.

    Some have said it looks like the heart of a cow, or of a turtle. Historians have noticed it could depict features of the human female body. It has been seen on ancient coins from the city of Cyrene (a formerly Greek city, founded in c.630 BCE, now in modern day Libya), some of which depict the seeds or fruit of the extinct silphium plant. The seeds are heart-shaped. The plant was widely used as an ancient herbal contraceptive so this shape may have come to be associated with sexuality and love through that connection. What is of interest is that there is no set moment of its creation, it just seems to have come through time as a symbol for the human heart and affection. How appropriate that the symbol for love is just as elusive and varied in description as Love itself.

    How To Ask Out a Date

    050227_masholding-hands_to.jpgAsking someone out on a date is simpler than expected, but there is no magic formula for a “yes” guaranteed. There are also some realities that you need to face to keep yourself from being hurt. You should be familiar with the person and have a sense that they feel friendly toward you. Don’t avoid them, then suddenly ask, this will more than likely get you a no.

    Confidence is one of the most attractive qualities in a person so even if you are feeling scared don’t act like it. Don’t try any goofy games either to try to trick them into a date. These kinds of things might be funny to do once you are dating someone.
