Are We Seeing A New Fashion Line?
Most children don't wear clothing until 6 years old. When 6 they have permission to wear clothing to protect them from dry heat. Recently, more and more children have been wearing a trendy side-lock hairstyle. Jewlery has also been seen on many children, espeically girls. They wear anklets, bracelets, collars, and hair accesories. On the other hand boys wear a cloth wrapped around them.
Women often wear simple sheath dresses called kalasiris. Women's clothing is very conservative. The dresses go down to their ankles. Beading has also been popular as detail on the dress.
Egyptian men normally wear simple clothing. Our Egyptian man wear a wrap around skirt known as the Shendyt. The Shendyt is belted at the waist. The men's skirts are short. Some men do not wear shirts and some wear a blouse or tunic.

Hatshepsut becomes a pharaoh?
What an outrage! Queen Hatshepsut becomes a pharaoh? What a shocker, she becomes a pharaoh? At age 12 Hatshepsut had married her half brother Thutmose II. When Thutmose II died Hatshesput had offered to watch Thutmose III until he got older to take over the throne. On the other hand Hatshesput was basically making all the decisions but then when she declared herself pharaoh, people weren't happy about it. Hatshepsut recently just tried to to change her image by making sure that she looked like a man, she even made sure all her female statues showed her looking like a man! If you would like to know what the reviwers have said then read below.
The Un-Wanted Hatshepsut Helps Egypt!
In Egypt people have had a lot of hate to Hatshesut! But something shocking has happened, the un-wanted Hatshesut has done a great trade. Hatshesut had a trading expedition, bring back vast riches which include ivory, ebony, gold, and leopard skins. Brought from a far away land Punt which is now possibly known as modern-day Eritrea.
The Days are Spinning!
What just happened? Egypt has proudly told me to announce that Egypt now has a solar calender! This new invention is suppose to show the position of the earth on its revolution around the sun. Our fellow Egyptians have even created a calander that featuresc 365 days and 12 months (30 days are in each month and a additonal 5 days are at the end of the year)
Our Egyptians have been working so hard, the inventors of this new invention have even told me to announce it! Being so excited, im happily announcing Black Ink. This new invention mainly is for writing which are for our scribes. If you dont believe me then here are the steps to making this Ink. So from how I heard it was that the Egyptians made a mix consisiting vegetable gum, soot and bee wax. You are even able to make this paint colorful! To be able to do that you will need to replace soot with other organic materials such as ochre for example. The latter allowed us to make red ink. So there is your proof (if your a scribe this invention will be great for you!)
The Doctors Save The Day
Our doctors has found a new medicine, this new meidince is used to repeal diseases. The secret ingridient is garlic. Garlic lowers cholesterol and lowers blood pressure and avoids insect bite. So come get some garlic to keep you and your family healthy!

But our Egyptians do not like foreigners and we consider them a enemy. Our enemies right now are the Hittites in the North, Nubians in the South, Asiatics in the East, and Libyans in the West.
