What are they up to? Tween up-date
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
Snazzy – as in snazzy
Swaggy – cool but daggy
idk – I don’t know
idek – I don’t even know
rofl – rolling on the floor laughing
cereal – serious. e.g. as in “I’m being cereal”
Fave new movies: This is Us – the One Direction documentary and Romeo and Juliet starring Haille Steinfeld due to open next week.
Most popular social media: snapchat, instagram, kik and tumblr.
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.
