Off-the-Path | Class Mockery Video

6 May

Remember I told you about a special project that we are working on in my Multimedia Journalism class? Well, it’s finally here! When the end of classes approached, our professor gave us the task to create a group video, which will represent us and our blogs in an entertaining way. Oh, we got inspired! We spent the next two weeks working on the story, shooting, and editing, while having oh-so-much fun! I’m not going to talk any longer… just enjoy the video!

All Good Things (Don’t) Come to an End

24 Apr

Hello there!

It is a marvelous day outside, which prompts that the semester is going to an end. I guess it is the natural time for my final post, or at least the last I am going to be graded on! It has been a long journey so far, more than three months in blogging, and I am already in love with it. I decided to keep my blog after and share with you my love to fashion! Still, I have some final words to say on the journey I went through because it has been a quite exciting and enthralling one.

Miss American University in Bulgaria – Yay or Nay?

3 Apr

I have always found it hard to take a position when it comes to the controversies in beauty pageants. Feminism defines such events as highly disrespectful and shallow, as ways to objectify women and show them primarily as sexual objects. On the other side, there are the people who believe that beauty is an important quality that deserves attention, that participation in such contests is a chance for women to express themselves and have fun. I guess both opinions are equally valid, but it is not my job to judge; rather, I would like to show another point of view.

In my university, there is this annual contest called Miss AUBG Beauty Pageant. It has been its fourth year in a roll and for the short time it has existed, it initiated a lot of controversy and discussions among students and faculty. Every year there is a lot of critique going on about the contest and some considerable negativism has been expressed towards it. As much as it is fun to read and watch what the opponents have to say about it, it also strikes me that nobody bothers to flip the coin and see its other side.

Self-Grooming, University Student Edition.

28 Mar

Hey there!

It has been a relatively rainy and bitter first week of Spring for me! At least I am finally able to switch the winter jacket for a lighter coat! With all these weather swings, so typical of March, I could not help but wonder how to take care of my hair and skin with this wind, sun, and rain. Thing is, that no matter how nicely you are dressed, if your hair looks dull and messy, if your skin is blemished, and your nails are poorly groomed, all your efforts to go out with a nice modern outfit are meaningless!

These are the three most important parts you have to constantly take care of. Of course, when it comes to grooming, you should again try and find out what works best for your personality. There is an endless number of options that experimenting is a must!

“I changed three different colors before I decided to stick with red,” said Xhulia, an Albanian sophomore at AUBG. “I believe that red fits me best. It makes me feel more confident because it is a very distinct color that speaks for itself.”
