For those that know me personally know that I am one of those people who is just random. I love things that are dark and eerie and beautiful. I also have this small part of me that loves girly stuff. I have for most of my life tried to squash that part of me because of how I grew up. I grew up in Florida, with the classic tan, blonde, green eyed pretty girl look. My mother insisted that I wear dresses, be a lady and overall be a girl, when my hearts desire was to run naked, climb trees, fish, swim and be a boy. So when I was old enough to make my own decisions about what I wanted in my life I was confused.. I rebelliously decided that goth was my thing, my style. Of course that wasn’t all that I am or even all that my personality wanted. But I felt stuck in that one style because it became what people expected of me. Even when I started college, my boyfriend at the time didn’t want me to wear tight or revealing clothes because he felt that every guy was looking at me, so I changed again and started wearing baggy mens clothes. Mostly with things like crazy pictures or sayings on them. And the way my personality shown through was by dying my hair many many colors.
Finally I grew up enough to realize that I am random, and sometimes weird and any style that I choose can reflect that. I didn’t have to be stuck in any one style or type. So now I wear what I want, I am pleased by lots of different beautiful things. You will find a lot of those things on my page. I am a collector of beautiful things, I have a garden full of random flowers and herbs that I find amazing. A closet full of random and weird and yes beautiful clothes.
And most recently I have started experimenting with makeup and jewelry. I also like to make beautiful things, whether that be a gorgeous birchwood table, silver earrings, decoupage, or pressed flowers. My friends say I am an old soul, a dreamer. I am who I am and I am finally happy with who I am. I am a hippy, a skater, a goth, and a girly girl, I am me.
I now have a beautiful baby girl that I am determined will always feel she can be herself and that I’m not going to pressure her into any mold and I sure as hell won’t let the world try to mold her either. We broke the mold when she was born. She is the most beautiful thing in my world. I hope you like my blog, I hope you enjoy following me in my quirky, fun, crazy and sometimes hectic life and sharing in all the amazing things I find.
