With all the juggling that we do on a daily basis, it seems to me to be a good thing to celebrate our womanhood, and what we like to do as women. Not as employees, girlfriends, wives, mothers, daughters, or friends. As I have been focussing on the negative aspects of my body and life recently, I wanted to move to the things about me that make me feel good.
I have seen lots of posts about what we struggle with, or things that we like to do, and I’d like to find out a bit more information about all of you.
This is my way of doing it. I am looking forward to visiting some of you on the blog hop.
What you cannot choose. The Rules are Simple
We all know that blogging / facebook, & or twitter is in our arena of what we like to do, so I am going to rule them out as one of the 5 that you can post about. They really are not very girly. Likewise, phones, computers, ipads are all out of the running.
I am challenging myself to this, as I am really not a girly girly type of person, and I want to find that within myself. It’s not all about power suits, filofaxes, ipads and designer phones.
If you want to pass this along, pick bloggers that you want to find out more about, and challenge them to write up their 5 secret passions that make them feel good. The idea is to lift our spirits this week. The fact that there is a linky added, just makes it all the more worthwhile in doing.
1 – I actually, really love my hair. I pretend that I don’t, as its thick, tends to frizz with curl when it is humid, and can be difficult to tame. What it can do, well, almost anything really if I really set my mind to it. I can wave it, curl it, frizz it, or straighten it. I choose to straighten mine nowadays as I like it that way, but in the 80’s, I used to have it like a poodle perm. It takes colour beautifully (when I get time to go to the hairdressers), and I do tend to change my hair colour by the year. Last year I was brunette, this year I am sort of blondish.
2 – I have no bunions, corns or callouses on my feet. Yay me. I hated my mother when I was growing up as she made me wear sensible shoes until I was old enough to buy shoes for myself. She used to wear gym shoes as she couldn’t afford to buy both me and her shoes, but I didn’t know that as a child. I so love her now for it, especially as I have internal foot problems with nerve damage, and I am grateful that the outside of my feet were never damaged by badly fitting shoes.
3 – I love my pink epilator. I used to spend a fortune on waxing, then I spied an epilator in Costco a couple of years ago. It cost me £40, but has saved me hundreds of pounds on waxing.
4 – Shoes. I have always had a shoes passion. Unfortunately I can’t wear most of the lovely things that are out there these days, so my passion has shifted to fitflops. I can handle that. It nearly broke my heart to sell the lovely Prada boots I had in my cupboard and the pair of Manolos that I had treasured, but when a couple of pairs of new fitflop boots arrived, I quickly got over my angst.
5 – I love make up and smellies. You probably wouldn’t think so as I don’t go overboard with mine these days, but I do. So many things are now free of the nasty stuff, that they are nice to try out. I love scented oils, candles, perfumes, mascaras. You can’t ever have too much make up choice, and a nice scented candle always makes me smile.
I am tagging some people from twitter today, but anyone can join in, and add an old post that covers the same topic. Lets find out a little more about each other.
