9 Essentials For Your Perfect Prom Emergency Kit
Be the pro-active and ready Candy Girl that you are by having your own prom emergency kit! This could be the best night of your life, or this could be the night where anything could happen. Either way, we want your prom to be super fun and memorable, which is why we're sharing with you the best tips to having the best prom ever by simply being ready for every possible situation with our very own list of #promessentials.
1 Breath mints
As delicious as the food and drinks on prom night could be, you could still possibly end up with bad breath after your meal. Avoid the awkwardness of having to talk to your date and friends by keeping your breath fresh and minty!
2 Oil-control sheets
If your face is prone to getting oily, this is a must for you! One or two sheets are enough to keep your face oil-free and fresh. This way you can avoid looking shiny in pictures with this essential.
3 Travel-size deodorant
Prevent baskil especially if you're wearing a dark-colored dress by bringing along a small stick of deodorant! Apply every 2-3 hours to avoid any underarm stains.
If you're starting to get bruises from raising the roof too high or if you're beginning to get blisters from all your killer dance moves, cover them up with a Band-Aid right away so it can help alleviate any pain. Give yourself some time to rest and make sure to check up on any more possible mishaps before heading back to the dance floor.
5 Safety pins
This is the mother of all emergency kit essentials. Prom dresses, no matter how beautiful, are delicate and usually require a lot of effort to wear and maintain. In case your zipper breaks, or a part of your dress suddenly rips, stitching it up or pinning it will do just the trick! Proceed with caution especially when handling sharp pins.
6 Hair pins
Curl out of place? Bangs bugging you? Your hair just suddenly gave up on you? A pack of bhair pins is a must for every prom night. For a quick fix, you can style your hair differently and neatly using your pins. Just be careful to store them right away; they tend to go astray afterwards.
Although heels look fabulous on any girl, not everyone's feet are up for the stiletto challenge. We suggest you bring along any pair of flats. It's stylish, comfortable, and super convenient! After a tiring night of dancing, you'll be thanking yourself for deciding to bring along a cute pair. Who says you can only look good in heels?
8 Power bank
In case you forgot to charge your phone before leaving the house, power banks are essential in keeping you in touch with your friends and family! Also, this is important so your parents and friends don’t start worrying when they can't contact you. Keep them updated at all times!
9 Extra money
It's always a good idea to bring along extra cash for any emergencies not on this list! Instead of having to borrow from your friends, carrying some extra cash will save your night from any other disasters.
Remember Candy Girls, sharing is caring! If your friends or your date is suddenly faced with a potential prom problem, come to the rescue and be a helping hand at their time of need. They'll be thankful for you kindness and you'll both enjoy the night worry-free and ready to face anything!

There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
