The fashion spies


I think a lot things about fashion spies.

Firstly, I would like to say good things about fashion spies. Well, it's good that they have companies using fashion spies, because seeing the clothing style that most people prefer and they try to do the most used clothes, and most favorite clothes.

finally, I would like to say bad things about fashion spies. They use fashion spies, only for their business, and make people spend their money, of the companies. I wouldn't like to do that, only for their good and they aren't interested in the  rest.

The fashions spies

The fashion spies

I didn't now that there were the fashion spies until I read this essay and now that I know it, I think "seriously are there people who spend the day in the street looking for trends?"
I think that the companies that have fashion spies are intelligent because they observe how the population dresses to adapt their garments to what the people want and this way they sell more and people have what they want. If they asked me to be a fashion spy I would say to them that no, bacuse I am too lazy to do it.
In addition, young people nouwdays spend too much money on clothes and cosmetics. Every day when I go to high school I see the girls of first of eso with a lot of make up and I wonder are they have masks or something?, and also I see them wearing T-shirts so short in winter. I don't know how they don't catch a cold.

The fashion spies

  • Do you think that young people spend too much money on clothes and cosmetics?

Yes, currently most young people tend to look at the brand of clothes they are going to buy more than the quality of clothes themselves. New clothes are also usually bought every time fashion has canged. 

In the case of cosmetics, it would be practically the same, since new creams, exfoliants, make-up base, lipsticks, etc are always being launched on the market.

An opinion essay

  • Live concerts are the best way to listen to music. What do you think?

In my opinion, live concerts are a funny to listen to music and it is a great experience, because you can see your favorite band or singer in person without a screen in between, listen as he plays or sings without vocal arrangements.

Also, when you are at a concert you can sing your favorite song along with all the fans that are round you while still being able to hear the voice of your favorite band or singer.

There are also times where your band or singer makes a show for all the fans who have attended their concert.

Finally, it is a way to spend a special and unique day with your friends, you can meet new people with your same tastes and maybe start a new friendship.

Reader Assignment

Fortunately, I was able to visit all of Scotland. I traveled all the way to John o'Groats which is located in the far north of Scotland.

Then, I took the ferry to the Orkney Islands, when I got to the islands I went to see the selkies, which are the most fascinating animals of Scottish mythology, selkies are seals capable of taking human form.

In the afternoon I went to the ring Brodgar which is the circle of stunes, where you can find Viking runes engraved on them and, you can also see the sunset. That was a magical exeprience that I can never forget.

On the third day, Martin and I went to drink the
best scotch Whiskeys in the Highland Park distillery, although I prefer beer from the Swannay Brewery distillery.

The Fonix 2018: Clean and Healthy Planet - "CLEANUP DAY" (info updated)

If you are happy to participate, the best video-presentation will be sent to The Fonix contest by your teacher.
There are 3 categories and each school can only send one video for each category.
The three categories are: 1st and 2nd of ESO, 3rd and 4th of ESO and 1st and 2nd of Batxillerat.
Here you have all the information about it and about the prizes.

The FINAL PRODUCT must be a video-presentation.  

Good luck and happy learning! 

  • Apart from the link that The Fonix has provided for you, here are some interesting TED conferences which you may like to listen to for inspiration. I have the feeling that if you really want to go for the prize you should take some action in your community: that is, identify and explain the problem and then do some Community Action Project. For example, educate the community, organize some clean-up day, collect signatures, etc.  

(information update 4/1/2018)
