hey girly

It will come as no surprise to anyone who's had more than a cursory glance at this blog that I'm quite a girly girl. I only wear dresses and skirts - pants are for sport and the odd spot of lounging. My nails are never nude - but always clothed in pretty colours. Going up means glamming up with make-up and I take no greater delight in planning how to make-up my face well in advance of the event. My home is filled with flowers, pretty colours and fripperies that cause me delight.

But in some ways I'm the antithesis of what's expected of a girly girl.

I shower quickly. In, wash, out.

I loathe shopping. Window shopping is my idea of personal hell - I shop with a purpose and much like showering I'm in, buy, then out.

Chatting on the phone - eek, not my thing. But commenting on blogs, facebook statuses and twitter - oh-so-my-style...

High maintenance? Nope. My hair's home-dyed {thank you Clairol Nice'N'Easy}, I don't do regular facials - my only indulgence is leg waxing - which is an essential really.

I don't buy new frocks for special events - I just re-accessorise. {frugal - but if I'm honest it's my loathing of shopping that makes this a necessity}

I'm the first one in my family who's ready to go out - even when I've done the full make-up. I've learned not to stand fretting at the front door and now I lie on the bed and read until they're out the door.



  1. I'm very similar to you. I love girly stuff, but I'm not your typically girly type.

    I take just minutes to get ready - I credit this to having brothers, as I was never allowed to take a long time.

    I hate shopping. I really loathe it.

    I get my hair streaked, but I do my own legs.
    Not into facials.

    Like you, I do take time and plan my outfits for a big occasions though.

  2. Oh I don't like talking on the phone either. Generally though as I have two little ones trying to get my attention which makes it difficult.

  3. I'm sure my genetic makeup is xxy because I live in pants, don't do face paint and the only thing I shop for is groceries. The universe, just to prove she has a twisted sense of humour allowed me to birth an angel who has pink sparkly bits running through her veins.

    The phone is for business purposes and email is my best friend.

  4. I'm the same, very much girly girly in the things I like to surround myself with. But I can be showered and out the door in under 5 minutes!


Comments make me SO happy. Thank you for taking the time to share the love x
