MY BRAND OF FEMININITY

Inspired by @chrisfon via @Boogie β€” as usual, I'm a little late to the party.

    I am a feminist to the core.
    I believe women can do anything. Literally. And I think if men were the ones to give birth to kids, abortion, birth control, paid family leave, et al, would not even be a question. I don't buy into the women submit to your husbands mentality and I think the business world would be better if we had more women at the top.

    But I'm still super duper girly.

    Dresses are life.
    I don't know if it's because they are so cute, it's usually so hot here or because wearing a dress is easier than putting an outfit together, but I basically live in dresses. Love them so much!

    I love the way I look with makeup. But I don't wear it everyday. Just when I feel like it.
    Fairly light makeup. I don't get too crazy and honestly I'm not that great at it. Just primer, tinted moisturizer, pressed powder, eye liner, eye shadow and mascara. Lip gloss when I feel like it, Chapstick constantly.

    I suck at doing my hair.
    My mom grew up without a mother so she never really learned hair and makeup and never taught me either. I mean, I can straighten or curl it when need be, but it never looks perfect. And it's normally a disaster and I just throw it up into a messy bun...and not like a cute messy bun, just messy messy.

    I love kids. But I don't plan to have any.
    Moms are the best. I love them! And kids are great. They're fun and cute and so interesting. I love my nieces and nephews, I love my little brother, I love my friends' kids, I love cute kids I see out and about. But the idea of taking care of a child for the rest of my life just does not appeal to me. I just think when you have kids, they automatically become your priority and I don't think that's something I want.

    Flats. All day everyday.
    Dressy flats. Sandals. Toms (actually, I like Bobs better). Rarely sneakers. I'm super short, but I don't care. I'll throw on a cute wedge from time-to-time or heels when I'm being glam. But I live for flats.

    I love sports. Especially football.
    Last year, I was walking into an NFL game and answered a question a guy asked (I don't remember what the question was now) and he said 'wow, you're pretty knowledgeable for a female sports fan.' And then I killed him. Okay, I didn't. But only because I'm not tough enough for jail.

    I hate spiders and snakes and frogs and lizards (lots of those here in the South) and pretty much anything that I consider creepy/crawly. Ugh. Just typing this makes me squirm.

    I'm glad to live with two ladies that are handy around the house.
    Because I am not, at all. I can't fix anything and I don't want to learn how to, if we're being honest.
  11. β€’
    I try really hard not to judge other women. You do you, Babe, and I'll do me.
    I hate that everyone makes it out to seem like women hate one another. I love other women. I celebrate their achievements, I appreciate their differences from me and I want them to have what makes them happy, even if it's the polar opposite of what makes me happy.
  12. β€’
    I'm a workaholic.
    Work has always been where I get most of my happiness and self worth. I'm trying to work on this a little, but at the same time, I still think it's okay for a woman to put her career P1 (as mine will be again, I'm sure, when I decide what I want to do next).
  13. β€’
    I love to bake and I'm learning to love to cook.
    Baking is the best, because it's very specific steps most of the time, which appeals to my analytical brain, whereas cooking is a bit tougher for me because it's more just throw in some of this and a little of that.

    I have a cleaning lady that comes every other week.
    I love laundry (and I'm fairly certain that no one else could do it my way correctly, cause I'm crazy like that), I hate the dishes and unloading the dishwasher, but I do it anyway. And my roommates and I are all pretty good at cleaning up after ourselves and keeping the house up. But I love having a lady that cleans for us because cleaning bathrooms is just not on my list of fun things to do and I don't really like to dust either.
  15. β€’
    I love everyone. And I care about everything.
    It's kind of exhausting actually. But I can't help it.
