In my case, of course I tried to be on fashion but it is not always possible. Fashion changes a lot and I have other priorities different from being on fashion, first things first. And also because fashionable clothes are very expensive and for example I prefer to buy a lot of clothes than spending a lot of money just in one T-shirt. (Amaia E.)
In my dreams, I’d like to win the lottery and go shopping all day and I can buy a dress that’s expensive, for example, 2000 euros… it’s a joke! (Saray)
Fashion just a lifestyle or a problem?
Fashion is a very important issue nowadays. It is not just for clothes, also for technology, TV or whatever. Lots of people say they don’t mind about fashion but it is not usually true. They like wearing good clothes or having a good mobile phone, a good car and also watching the new film with those famous actors.
It’s only a piece of clothe!
Fashion. Fashion can be a variety of things: a way of thinking, a way of dressing, a way of speaking… If you asked someone to speak about fashion, he would speak about clothes, about the new ideas or the new designers… but fashion is not only that. (Sofía)
Today we’re fashion-victims.
From my point of view, nowadays we can see fashion at home, on television, at magazines, surfing Internet, in shops, in the underground, in Hollywood people… we see the latest fashion everywhere and all time. (Nekane)
In our current society, this kind of topic is remarkable. Fashion is changing all the time around us and some of us are victims. (Janire)
Whereas in our society fashion is very, very, and very important, it is also relevant to our culture. Because it is always changing and offering people new fashion and extravagant clothes, some current and new, and some from other times, like 80s clothes. (Montse)
To sum up I want to say that I am going to start eating better than now, but remember that it’s easier said than done! (Lorea)
But on the other hand, because of fast food, lots of people are getting fatter and increasing their cholesterol, what can cause a heart-attack. (Amaia)
To sum up, I think that it’s necessary to eat good, to feel well and I know it’s difficult but if you look on the bright side, you will know that first things first!
I know what I should eat to have a really healthy diet, but to do it you must be really concerned, because it is easier said than done. (Diana)
In addition, I eat five portions of fruit a day, for example, apple, banana, orange, kiwi and strawberries. These five ones are my favourite fruits. (Itziar V.)
How to be happy with your body!
Nowadays lots of people don’t eat well. Some people eat like a horse and other people eat very little variety of food, those things aren’t good for us. (Nikole)
On the other hand, there are those who don’t mind about what they eat. So they take in their diets many fats and hidrocarbohydrates and each day it passes they get fatter and fatter. Furthermore, this kind of people don’t practise any sport so they will finally turn into a coach potato. (Sara)
If you do these kinds of things, you are going to live more time, you are going to be happy and assured with yourself, and more good-humoured than if you didn’t do it. (Patricia)
