'Handy' accessories

Naziba Basher

There are so many things to turn to when life gets hectic for one. As we try to move onto cherishing our best memories while trying to forget the past, we try to keep ourselves busy with one thing or the other. One of the things that we commonly engage ourselves with (which also makes us pretty happy, bold and confident) is fashion. We all love to look fashionable at some point or the other, no matter how much one may deny it. And most fashionable items or accessories have certain strings as well attached to them. After some hectic classes and rides to and from university through out the week, students find themselves free of thought during weekends and that is when hangouts with ones best friends and fashion come hand in hand.

The famous celebrity and athlete Lance Armstrong used the band "LIVESTRONG" to spread fighting spirit and confidence amidst cancer patients as he was one among them who fought it valiantly and bravely and came out to win many endeavors. To spread the message and confidence of Armstrong, "LIVESTRONG" bands are now seen on almost every young student's wrist as they wear it for style and a cause at the same time. Also, the famous red and green wristbands will help one portray his/her love for our country every time they feel patriotic.
