Novel Ideas to Make Your Prom Night Fun


We will always remember prom night with fondness as we and our classmates unwind after the exams with fear, excitement and expectations intertwined, not knowing what’s coming ahead. Prom is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion (just like wedding lol) therefore it is worth planning a few fun-based activities to get everyone in the party mood.
Here are a few ideas to add some pah-zazzzz to your special night.

Set Up a Movie Corner

No doubt everyone loves a good film! This can be set up in a quiet corner with caramel popcorn and fizzy drinks or outdoors with a small barbecue pit burning. Movies like “Back to the Future” and “Home Alone” are classics, however, if you and your friends love a good horror film, please do!

Plan After Prom Games

There's nothing like a few fun yet quirky games as prom night winds down. The list of games that are suitable for a prom is endless so here are few to get you started. Getting help from prom-buddies would also make preparation more meaningful, creating time with each other before moving on to the next stage of life.

Create a Selfie Station

This is a novel idea that requires planning in advance but worth the pinch. You could book one, diy selfie props that trigger sweet memories or come out with ideas that ties to an inside joke. An archway would be perfect, which can be created out of plywood and a few coats of paint. Drape some LED lights to add glamour and warmth to those rosy cheeks. Get creative! x

Organise a “Best Prom Photo” Contest

Make this game spontaneous, set the timer on and let things run wild! Allow time for preparation and ‘practice’ so that everyone has adequate time to give their best. “Best Outfit Contest” is also another great idea to see how everyone channels their inner fashion-Gordon-Ramsey. Whatever style you prefer, Peaches Boutique showcases black prom dresses for 2019 including designer dresses at affordable prices.

“Memory is a diary that we all carry with us” - Oscar Wilde -

Prom was almost 10 years ago, and we could still vividly remember the very little details, from bad dance moves to tummy butterflies and flat hair. It is a special occasion we all experience perhaps just once in a lifetime. With the help of some friends and creativity, we could all make prom day extra special :)

5 Things I'd Tell My Younger Self

 Officially 25!
Assuming I could live till the marvellous age of 75,
A third of my life has gone passed by and
I have two third left before turning into ashes.

Disclaimer: This post is 4 months overdue.

 

01 Nothing is permanent

Your hair, your skin, your best friend, your anything and everything will be different at every point in life. People come and go. Don't frown over the littlest things and don't take too much pride over success. Even tattoo fades.

02 There is no 'time-limit' for anything

Take your time. Go and grow at your own pace.
"Find a boyfriend at 18, get married at 25 and have 2 children by 28."
"Graduate from university at 22, find a job then get promoted every year and be a manager by 30." If you're a 90s child like me, you'll understand. I'm single at 25 and still learning how to fry an egg.

03 Set your eyes on the prize

"You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks"
I've only started focusing on my vision 3 years ago. My life and career has grown towards the better and is now in a different paradigm. I'd tell my younger self that losers focus on winners and winners focus on winning.

04 Create inner peace

Your peace is more important than driving yourself crazy trying to understand why something happened the way it did. Let it go. Most of you who know me in person would know that my life is a plateful. What you see is just a factor of the whole picture as things are way more challenging.

Growing up with signs of anxiety, feeling anxious was always mistaken as feeling nervous therefore nothing was done to help myself. As of now, I'm constantly making effort to inject 'peace' both internally & externally because a calm & clear set of mind changes the way we perceive life.

05 Be like a duck

Remain calm on the surface. Paddle like crazy underneath. Always.


 
Life is a learning process on it's own. Wherever you are in life, I hope you are having fun :)

The book that changed my lifestyle this 2017.
Bold but true.

 
 
 

It took me 9 months to realize how I haven't picked up a book and set aside time for bedtime read. <The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down> was so beautifully written. Every word of advice felt like a gentle nudge and each piece of art illustration brought out the calm in me which I have lost since the beginning of 2017.

I've given myself extra sleep every day. I've started meditating every night. Instead of plain crackers, I've been snacking on roasted almonds. Instead of going back to the room after dinner, I've been breeze walking. Instead of watching an extra 30 minutes of YouTube video, I've been reading before bedtime. I've been showering earlier to create more time to wind down too.  I've finally learnt how to set time to do 'nothing'. 

It's the act of incorporating small changes in between that makes our life easier and 'lighter'. Since having a clearer mind, I've started listening to podcasts which is a great way to rest my eyes and put everything heard into imagination.  Currently listening to 'The Minimalists Podcast' by Joshua & Ryan and 'At Home With...' by Lily and Anna a.k.a. my favorite people.

I highly recommend you pick this up because if it changed my lifestyle, it could change yours too. Currently having "The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k" on the go. Will report back soon! In the meanwhile, I shall get back to doing the laundry and perhaps shop for some new books for the upcoming season.  Till then x

 
 

"There is no such thing as being completely prepared.
Life is an adventure, through which we learn and mature.
Of course, we must consider all our options carefully.
But if we wait for 100 percent certainty, then it is often too late."
