Love Knot Diamond Ring

Susan asks…

Can I have some serious help for prom?

So basically, my prom is coming up on May 12th, and the only thing I have figured out for sure is my dress.
Here is the link:

Other than that, my ideas are very sketchy. I mean hair, makeup, accessories, shoes, everything.

Since the dress has gold in it (and I’m already blonde and I naturally look better in gold than silver), I’ve decided to go with gold jewelry. I’m definitely going to wear the ring I got from my mom on her 18th birthday, which is a gold love knot with a small diamond in the center. Other than that, I’m not sure. I want a necklace, but I’m not sure whether it should be long or short, or whether or not I should have rhinestones on it or have it plain gold. Also, for earrings I don’t know if I should wear my simple gold-and-diamond studs that I always wear or get something more dangly.

It’s pretty simple as far as shoes go, I’m short so I definitely need heels to avoid paying to alter the dress. I don’t know if I should use my plain red heels that I already have or invest in gold heels, and if I get gold heels whether or not they should be glittery.

I kind of know what I want for hair, I know I want a somewhat curly up-do with a small curly strand hanging on each side to frame my face. I would like pics of some hairstyles along these lines. I kind of wanted a headband, but I don’t know if I should because a red one might be too much and a gold one would blend into my blonde hair. So I might just skip that.

As far as a handbag goes, I don’t know if I should get gold or red for that either. Gold would probably be better because it won’t be too much red, but red has the added benefit of being useful after prom since I wear red every day. Also, should it be glittery or not?

I’m completely clueless as far as makeup goes. I know you’re supposed to emphasize either the eyes or the lips, but not both. Since I’m wearing a red dress, I kind of wanted to wear red lipstick, but I’m not sure because then I would have to play down my eyes. I have small lips and large eyes so it would probably be in my favor to draw attention to my eyes instead. If I do that, I don’t know what to do for eye makeup or what lip color to choose. I have brown eyes and a warm skin tone, if that helps any.

I know that’s a lot, but any and all input is much appreciated. Thanks for your time!

Sandra asks…

Not ready for marriage?

I’ve been dating my boyfriend for about 5 months. I’m 17 and he’s 23. (It’s legal where I live).
He’s an absolute sweetheart. He spoils me, he respects the fact that I’m a virgin, he respects the fact that I’m very career-driven, and the fact that he’s gorgeous doesn’t hurt lol.
He’s a little bit clingy, though, and I’m more independent.
Lately he’s been dropping hints about proposing to me.
For example, last week at dinner he asked me what I’d say if I proposed. I didn’t really answer. A few days ago, he kissed my hand and said, “your hand would look absolutely beautiful with a big diamond ring on it, don’t you think?” He also always talks about how excited he is to get married and start a family. Today he set up an “important” dinner for us tomorrow… I’m nervous. I’m definitely not ready to get married, but I don’t want to lose him because I really do love him. What should I do if he does propose?

LoveKnots answers:

I went through something like this with my boyfriend last year! Only we were engaged twice before… And on the third time I just said no. It was hard telling him no, because I -really- care about him… I just wasn’t ready for marriage at that moment! We’re still together now, and I think I might propose soon… (I have an open question about it, you should totally check it out :3 )

If he asks, don’t crush him with a stern ‘no’. Just explain to him how you’re feeling about life and the situation you’re in that’s making you feel uncomfortable. For example, you could say something along the lines of “Aww, I really appreciate the sentiment but I don’t think we’re completely ready for such a strong commitment right now.” Feel free to explain why, and reassure him that you still see him as the moon and stars – you’re just not ready yet! Maybe tell him you want your love to mature a little more before tying the knot. If he loves you enough to propose, he should love you enough to understand your concerns at the moment :) Things will be fine! Just be as empathetic as possible, and show him that you still love him the same.

Despite being called ‘selfish’ and being told that you’re holding him back, so to speak… At the end of the day – you’re responsible for your own happiness and no one else’s. I think the fact you’ve taken the time to think this through without being all giddy and just saying yes (like I did twice…) is pretty noble, and damn sure mature of you. Kuddos to you, you’re doing great. Don’t do anything you’re not comfortable with!
