Dear Nicole is a site dedicated to everything for the teenage girl. From music, fashion, and advice, it’s no wonder that we found this site to be a girl’s true sanctuary. Within the site there is an anonymous advice column called Dear Nicole. It’s a place where you can reach out for a bit of advice or a little direction. We all know life has its little (or maybe huge) complications. That is why we here at BFF decided to team up with TD to present you with, “Dear Nicole”:

Dear Nicole,
I recently started attending this new school. I feel like an outcast there. I talk to my classmates but not other people in different classes/grades. I also feel as if I talked to more people I would get better grades. My grades aren't too bad. I got a C in one class and the rest A's and B's. I talked to my guidance counselor and my mom, but they didn't really help.

A: It’s hard to answer a question, because you don’t really state one. I don’t know why you feel like an outcast. Nor do I know what you’ve been doing to make yourself more social. Why do you feel like talking to others outside of your grade would improve your grades? There are many ways to improve your social involvement, including joining school clubs, church groups and community programs like the YWCA. Step outside of school for a potential social circle and always remember it’s not the quantity of friends it’s the quality. Hope this helps!

BFF PROM GUIDE: Prom Purse Essentials

Contributed by Tracy Garraud, here are 17 essentials that you will need to have in your prom purse:

Prepping for prom can be a ridiculous hassle. The dress, the hair, the date, the makeup - all are essentials that need to be handled for some serious stuntin’ and stylin’. While most of your attention will be focused on beautifying, do ask yourself one very important question before a heel enters that limo: “What’s in my bag?” It’s easy to get swept up by the whirlwind of pre-prom production, but remember that there may be some stumbles and slip-ups even during your special night. Dodge the blunders and keep your prom game tight by loading your purse with all the necessaries. Check our list below and don’t get caught partying it up without these items in tow.
1. Mascara: One of the most understated beauty features is the eyelash. Keep them flirty and fresh no matter the hour and your date will start blinking twice.
Recommendation: Max Factor 2000 Calorie Aqua Lash
2. Lotion: An ash attack can arrive when you least expect it. Don’t get caught off guard with legs that are anything less than silky. You never know whose hand might be there.
Recommendation: Vaseline Cocoa Butter Smoothing Body Butter
3. ID: Even though it’s prom, the after-party carries just as much heavy anticipation. Leave your government at home however and that’s right where your headed come the last dance.
4. Deodorant: After you’ve finished breaking ‘ol boy off to your favorite song, we bet every petal on your corsage that you’ll need to freshen up. Avoid the infamous wet marks with just a few swipes in the ladies room.
Recommendation: Secret Clinical Strength Anti-Perspirant Deodorant
5. Fragrance: It would be a shame if you arrived at prom smelling like roses, but left smelling like stems. Keep your scent up to par by throwing in a free sample from the perfume counter or copping a roll-on.
6. Body Tape: Unless you’re going for the stripper look, nip slips are never cute. Keep the twins from an embarrassing peek-a-boo with some quick sticky magic.
Recommendation: Victoria’s Secret Fashion Tape
7. Keys: Depending on if you really want to wake up mom and dad at 6AM post-prom partying, grab these before you kiss the ‘rents goodbye.
8. Bobby Pins: No matter how many you stab into your hair, a lonely curl can always find it’s way out the bun. Keep your mane the way you intended and by picking up a few.
9. Lip Gloss: Besides your wedding, prom is the one night filled with an abundance of kisses, sips, hugs, and snacks, leaving your pout shimmer-free. Wet ‘em up with your favorite bottle of gloss.
10. Mints: Sweeten up your chances for some limo lip action with the date.
Recommendation: Tic Tac Paradise Mint Chill
11. Cell phone: May seem obvious, until your stuck with an emergency remembering how you left your phone on the couch mid-mayhem. Let this be the first thing you pack.
12. Compact Mirror: We’ve all had our many moments where we wanted to use the bathroom as an excuse to use the mirror. Prom will be filled with tons of the same girls thinking the same thing. Avoid the line and cramped space with your own personal looking glass.
13. Heel Pads: Unless you’re a model, prancing around in heels for more than five hours may be new news for your feet. Keep them comfy from the first song to the last.
Recommendation: Foot Petals Haute Heelz
14. Camera: Just like your cell phone, this is another item that can get overlooked in the mix.
15. Eyeliner: Usually the first bit of makeup to start smudging, be sure to have a liner ready for touchups come exiting the prom and entering the club. 
Recommendation: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil
16. Safety Pins: You never know what snags and tears may occur, so keep them at bay with the push of a pin.
17. Money: Although prom payments are usually made in advance, you never know when your tummy may start growling or a last minute cab is needed.

BFF Prom Guide - Hair

Hey Biffles,

To kick off our BFF Prom Guide, we decided to start at the root of the matter (haha) - Your hair. How you style your hair is just as important as picking out your dress. If you decide to wear a backless dress or a dress that incorporates a charming design on the back, you wouldn't want to block it with your hair down. When deciding what to do with your hair, make sure to enlist your closest gal pals. They will be the ones who will tell you the utmost truth when it comes to how you look.

- To help you on your search, flip through a bunch of magazines (can either be specific to hair, or just your every day fashion mag). This will help you get ideas of what you like and giving a picture to a hair stylist is way easier than trying to describe what you want.

- Make sure to plan ahead. This is imperative. You don't want to decide last minute on a hairstyle and realize while styling that you might not have enough or might have too much hair for it to come out the way you wanted.

- Decide on your style at least a week before the big night. If you're doing your hair at home, make sure you have all the things you're likely to need: mousse, gel, hairspray, clips, headband, curling iron, curlers and combs.

- Use a clarifying shampoo the week before your prom to remove any build up that might leave your hair limp and lifeless. Follow with a hot oil treatment to impart shine and luster to your locks.

- Bring miniature sizes of your hair styling products to the event for touch-ups.

Being around each other 24/7 - it was inevitable that Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning would become tight. Fanning first appears with Stewart in Twilight's "New Moon "and is now her right hand girl in the movie "The Runaways". Dakota tells "Kristen is one of my best friends in life now. We talk about everything, but I’m not saying much more! That’s another reason we were so excited to do The Runaways together. I couldn’t ask for a better person to stand by my side while I did a more grown up role. Now, we hang out all the time. We go shopping or just out for dinner. The press loves it."

And we love it too! Drop us a line below and tell us what you think.
