If you are wearing a backless dress or a dress with some back showing for prom, then listen up! Today I am going to give you a few exercises to do that will help get your back toned and tight for prom! A lot of times we skip workout out our back and shoulders because we want to avoid getting “man shoulders” but these exercises aren’t meant to make you bulk up, they’re to tone. Plus, all you need is two dumbbells in your desired weight. I go for 5 pounders.

  1. Dumbbell shrugs: Grab a dumbbell in each hand and hold them down by your sides. Raise your shoulders as high as possible, meaning shrug them, and then lower them. Do these as many times as you want.
  2. Rocking plank: Get into your normal pushup plank position and then roll forward on your toes so they are pointed and flat on the floor. Then roll back to your starting position. The rocking motion is what tones up your back!
  3. Dumbbell front and side raise: This move works both your arms and your back. Score! Hold your dumbbells in both hands with your palms facing down. Make sure to keep your legs shoulder-width apart and to keep your elbows straight. Raise your arms in front of you, then out to the sides. Repeat until it burns!
  4. Side plank: These are great for sculpting your back as well as your side abs! If you don’t know how to do these, it is super simple. Just lay on your side, then push up on your forearm. Do for 30 seconds, then switch sides.

I can’t wait for prom, can you?!

Whether it is your first or fourth time going to the prom, you most likely have questions about how the night and the events leading up to it should go down. In order to ease your troubled minds, I have come up with a list of frequently asked questions about prom and have answered them according to my findings on the subject!

  1. Once I am asked to prom, how long can I wait to let them know if it is a “yes” or “no”?
  • Ideally, you should let them know asap. If you aren’t sure of your answer right when they ask you, tell them, in the nicest way possible, that you will let them know soon.
  1. Does he pay for dinner? Do I? Do we split it?FullSizeRender (55)
  • If you are dating, he should pay. If you are going as friends, you should split it. If you are anything in between, assume you are splitting the check unless he offers to pay.
  1. Is renting a limo necessary? Who pays, if so?
  • Definitely not necessary! Driving to prom with your date can be a fun time for you two to get to know each other! If you DO end up renting a limo, it is usually with a group of friends, and you all pitch in.
  1. How do you know if/what kind of boutonniere to buy your date?
  • Ask him what color suit is, and ask him if he even wants one! It is totally okay for him not to want to wear one.
  1. Should I meet his parents, and should he meet mine?
  • I say yes, but it is whatever you feel comfortable with! Your parents may feel more comfortable sending you off to the dance if they have been introduced to who you are going with, and vice versa.
  1. What if the night isn’t going well?
  • If your date is a dud, if he is treating you badly, or if you are just having a bad time, try and hang with your friends. To avoid having to dance with your date if the night isn’t going well, grab your bff and dance with her or just go to the bathroom. Worse comes to worse, have your mom come get you.
  1. Can I dance with other people at the prom?
  • Up to you! If you are actually in a relationship with your date, you will need to clear it with him, but if you aren’t dating your date, I say yes! Slow dances are usually reserved for your date, but if a guy friend asks you to come dance the electric slide with him, I think that is totally cool! Of course, check with your date first.
  1. Will my date expect me to kiss him at the end of the night?
  • You kiss who you want to and when you want to, you don’t kiss because you feel you HAVE to! He shouldn’t expect anything. You choose who you kiss and when you kiss them! If you don’t feel like it is appropriate, then don’t! Simple as that.

I hope these helped answer any of your prom questions! If you have more, comment below!

XOXO, Chels

Prom and graduation are just around the corner, and with both of these comes one thing….group pictures! We have all had that awkward group-photo experience where everyone is confused about what they are supposed to be doing with their hands, if they should be squatting or standing, and “guys, are we smiling or are we being serious?” Here are a few tips on how to look supa fierce in every group pic.

  1. Get in sync: Not Insync, like the band, in sync like as in the same pose! One of the keys to a good group is to make sure you are all on the same page pose wise.FullSizeRender (50)
  2. Keep up the candids: I looooove candid pictures. They let your personality shine through! Just because it is graduation doesn’t mean you have to stand stiff and serious! Throw your hat, have a laugh, and hug your friends.
  3. Squat it out: Once you have mastered the “squad squat” you will never have trouble taking group pics again. When you need to fit a bunch of buds into one pic, file into a few rows, then squat your tush down.
  4. Pop a knee: An easy way to add some sass and attitude to a group pic is to do a little pop of the knee. A knee pop can actually help fit more people into the pic if you are standing diagonally!

Now go rock those group photos! Stay fierce.
