Tweens. As the mother of one I am like a mouse on a wheel, constantly trying to decipher obscure looking words, mind-read and keep up with what’s what.

The last post I did on tween-ism was super-popular  – perhaps I am not alone on this god forsaken wheel? But like fashion, tweens are fickle and what was cool yesterday is tepid, bordering on luke-warm today. So it seems these updates will need to become a regular fixture.

I quizzed said tween for updates. Feel free to fill in any blanks. U r tots kool muddas! Mwah x

Tweens heart jellies, Harry, overalls and Cara.

idek – I don’t even know

rofl – rolling on the floor laughing

cereal – serious. e.g. as in “I’m being cereal”

Social media to make sure they are NOT on: askfm – a virtual minefield for bullying and harassment. Put on your detective hat and make sure he or she is not registered.

Style icon: Cara Delevingne is still ‘tots kool’.

Must-have fashion item: Jellies (Havaianas are like, so yesterday), sweaters featuring cute motifs and denim overalls (time to toss mine then).

Favourite One Direction member: Depends on what school you go to. Louis, Harry and Niall dominate.

Most anticipated music moment now that we have seen 1D in concert:  1D Day –  a worldwide event  taking place on November 23 in which they’ll be hosting a live broadcast for seven (!) hours.

Most anticipated TV show: Season 4 of Pretty Little Liars. Coming soon!

Cool motif: LIPS are the new moustache.

Cool tunes: Royals by Lorde,  Classic by MKTO, Wrecking Ball (gulp) by Miley Cyrus and her new album “Bangerz” (double gulp).

Shop-spots: JCrew, Zara, Dotti, Sportsgirl, H&M and Dangerfield.

Best past-time: Thinking about One Direction and creative collaging, sans cut and paste (so 1990s). Thank you for the stellar examples created by my resident tween and her clever posse.
