I’m sure somewhere along your montage of memories you have been asked the question: “If you could choose, would you rather be a boy or a girl?” I used to always weigh my options like would I rather go through child birth or have to shave my face regularly? Mind you, this is not meant to stir up any conflicts about the definitions of boys or girls. I am just going to go with what is well-known as “girly” actions.
So here we go. I always chose that I would be a girl. Why? I love getting all dressed up to the nine and having the ability to transform yourself from sweats and buns to silk and curls. Don’t get me wrong, some girls are freakishly talented at making themselves almost unrecognizable with loads of make up caked to their face. That’s not me. When I say I put on make up, I mean I do some cool eye-shadow, draw on the eyeliner, and brush my lashes with mascara. To many girls this is an every day thing but for a girl who rarely wears make up, it makes the night just a little extra special.
As for my pin straight hair, curling it is always a treat. I do that movie thing where I flip it a million times and stare at myself in the mirror for minutes on end while making weird faces at different angles. Come on ladies, you know you’ve been there. Work it, honey. I mean, what’s the point in pinning all of these cool tricks and tips on Pinterest if you never use them?!
Basically, I love the power a girl has to transform herself. It’s crazy how looking a certain way can put you in a mood to match. You can dress to feel cozy or dress to feel like a diva and the effects of make up and hairstyles just add to the magic. I’ll be honest, you can over do all of these things very easily and that’s one of the biggest reasons I like to save my dress up days for when I want to feel extra special and wonderful. Maybe its because I’m lazy or maybe it’s because I am in an emotional relationship with leggings and soft shirts, but either way I will only whip out diva Anna on special occasions.
NOW I’M BREAKING ALL THE RULES! This week, I’m going to pick a day and dress up for no particular reason. Just in the sense of making myself feel good. Have you ever done that? Dressed up just because you know you would feel better? I am going to wait until I have one of those days and go all out, because ordinary days can be special occasions too, right?
Who’s with me?! 🙂
Until next time,
