1 On Being a Lavender Pants Kind of Woman

 “Maybe it was true, and being a girl could be about interest rates and skinny jeans, riding bikes and wearing pink. Not about any one thing, but everything.” 
                                                               ― Sarah Dessen, Along for the Ride
I love being a girl/woman; I love thinking about lipsticks and lashes, about nail polishes and toned abs; about hairstyles and jewellery; shoes and bags; colours and perfumes.
I love that sometimes I go to bed late because I'd been scratching things off my shopping list and adding some to it. 
I love that when I smile at a man he notices and maybe lifts that heavy box for me.
I love that I inhale my coffee and giggle into a book. I love to fuss over interior décor until I drive some one near-crazy.  I love that I get to sway as I walk and grumble about toe blisters.
I love that in the middle of thinking about work-related issues I sneak in a thought about food ingredients or lingerie while staring at the work-place presentation. 
I love that I can wear lavender pants and cross my legs when I pose for photos. 
Why do you love being a girl?

1 Wild Child

 “When I am most deeply rooted, I feel the wildest desire to uproot myself.”
― Anaïs Nin
I dislike to fit in so completely that I no longer know where I end and the other(s) begin.
Female friendships for me are short lived and I'm ok with the experiences I garner during that time frame. It unsettles me to explain why I do certain things, account for every move or get accompanied to every place. I do not enjoy being fussed over, I snap at that, neither do I enjoy having my train of thought interrupted by constant chatter, so that when I find I'm deeply entrapped I uproot myself.
My wildest desire to uproot myself comes when I find myself suddenly listening to and slightly nodding to a subtle back biting or character assassination.
My wildest skirt is the animal print one I have on below. It was two sizes too big, but the prints got me deeply rooted into the thought of having it in my wardrobe, so I got it tailored to 

Dressed it up for fall with a sheer tank in a lovely autumnal shade and my fave jacket.
When do you feel your wildest desire to uproot yourself ?

2 Fall Shades::: Orange For Fall

 There are people who live their whole lives on the default settings, never realizing you can customize. ----Robert Brault

Have you ever butted heads with someone who flatly refuses to do things differently than their parents? Heck, long ago, I did get a shock when someone told me using a washing machine meant I was lazy. O_O!
Every time I print mix there is a person who tries to tell me to revert to the plain shirt and printed skirt default. I just smile because trying to explain would only earn me the 'weird' label, not that I haven't earned that already, lol.
I didn't plan this print mixing of orange shades, but I love how it turned out.
So, I braided my hair. It's a big deal because I never do and when I do I go for the simplest style; I just cannot sit for over two-three hours, I will cry, seriously.
