I live in the land of skinny jeans, North Face jackets and UGGS. Straightened hair. Salads. Manicures.
I don't own skinny jeans and now that I have discovered yoga pants, well, you can only imagine how little I need skinny jeans.
My kids have North Face jackets. I took the Old Navy fleece Peter was given for Christmas two years ago and made it mine.
Nope...I don't have UGGS. I rock my Merrill clogs like nobody's business. And I did buy a kicking pair of suede over the knee boots I wore to LIVE last week. The thought of putting them on again pains me...
Up until I got pregnant, I had pin straight hair. Then, I apparently had a permanent hormonal imbalance that resulted in some wonky pregnancy "wave" that needs to be hit with the brush when I blow dry my hair. I am OK with the use of the straightener, but since it belongs to Bella, "WHY ARE YOU USING MY STRAIGHTENER?!!!" (um, because I bought it?), I tend to not even bother. Plus, my hair is frequently in a pony tail.
OK, I do eat a lot of salads. I am a cuticle biter (I know, I know...) so I do indulge in a manicure once in a while and I adore a pedicure.
So how do I remain unique? How do I not conform? How do I swim out of my own pond?
I would say opening TGHR was a pretty unique venture. It is not your typical new business.
I try not to worry or wonder or frankly, even care what anyone thinks about me. The human being in me has a hard time with that.
I conform when it suits me.
I like black. I like to paint my toenails black and right now, even my fingernails are a very dark gray. My new RAV4 is black.
I toy every now and then with changing THIS very website to a black background rather than white. (Perhaps I'll do it for a week and then survey which you like better?)
I read books based on what the masses suggest. Sometimes, I get the book first and suggest it to the masses.
I love music of almost every genre. But if my teen suggests something not on my typical playlist, I will give it a listen.
I do not partake in scary: movies, TV, books. Romance, comedy, the occasional drama. Oh, musicals. I adore musicals.
So? What makes YOU stand out? Do you get out of your pond? Please share!
