Fridays are clearly for venti mochas, pink lipstick and sparkly headbands. In fact, I’ve been looking forward to breaking out my favorite mint jeans all week because now that I’m a big girl (or trying to be) I can’t just wear jeans any old day of the week that I so please. I’ve never understood the casual Friday office mentality though. Was it simply created to keep office morale up? Like are employees somehow happier when they can look forward to busting out their trendy Kate Spade denim come Friday? If morale is simply the reasoning companies should probably start implementing “Casual Monday” because I am far more in need of a little pick-me up on Monday morning than on Friday when I’m already walking on sunshine knowing the glory of the weekend is just eight hours away. It’s these bright ideas that are going to help me climb the corporate ladder in no time people. VP Marketing Fairy Princess Queen of the World in the making. To have that title on an office door one day…that’s a life aspiration for my “Forty before Forty Goals perhaps”? (wink wink).
Things got a little hot & heavy over here yesterday, and since I’m striving for the perfect balance between my inner Sylvia Plath and my inner Sunshine Barbie I figured I should keep things peppy and bright today (hence the pink lipstick and sparkly headband, which I realize you can’t actually see). So, as suggested by pretty little Lauren, I thought I would share 7 facts about me, you know, since we never talk about me around here (insert eye roll here).
Un| My family is planning a trip to Paris this spring and I am (hopefully) invited. I don’t want to “count my chickens before they hatch” but this could be a real dream come true. Not to mention the company I’m working for currently has an office in France…maybe I’ll just skip moving back to Seattle altogether and intern there. I’m kidding. Kidding in the way that if the opportunity arose I wouldn’t actually be kidding, that sort of kidding.
Deux|I desperately miss school already which is crazy because even if I was still in college my classes wouldn’t be starting for another two weeks. While I have no desire to return to my insane schedule of waking up early to work before class, racing to make it to school on time, walking dogs in between classes, babysitting again in the afternoons before arriving home and spending all evening doing homework in bed (I’m exhausted just typing it)…I really just love the anonymity of sitting in a crowded lecture hall, taking color coded notes and just loosing myself in some other time period (#HistoryMajor). Ugh, I’m already ready for Grad school.
Trois| I can barely even bring myself to confess this (because I know I am going to be judged hard core) but I really don’t understand the whole Beyonce craze. I don’t want to “Keep Calm and Be Yonce”. If anything I want to “Keep Calm and Be Taylor Swift” but let’s be completely honest we all know that when it comes to a high strung, Type A, paranoid freak such as myself there is no such thing as keeping calm. The point…to each his/her own I suppose?
Quatre|If I could have three wishes I would use them all towards very important humanitarian efforts, of course, however if I could have about twenty wishes I would use at least one of them to transform my natural lashes into perfect, long, Disney Princess eyelashes. I know I could technically get latisse, or eyelash extensions but I don’t want to deal with all of that drama. I just want the dark, full lashes my seven year old brother has naturally (WHY DO BOYS GET ALL THE EYELASH LUCK).
Cinq| I always imagined I wanted a giant fairy-tale princess wedding. However, the more I think, the more I am certain I want to run away and elope when the time comes. The more aware I become of how much I hate huge parties, and how many family members I don’t want to share my romantic day with, and how much of a Bridezilla I undoubtedly would become the more I think…shouldn’t I just elope in the South of France? Luckily I don’t have a fiance so guess I really don’t need to over think this one any more than I already have. Obviously I would still have an over the top wedding gown so let’s not worry about me missing out on that experience.
Six|I can’t stop listening to “Come Back…Be Here” (by Taylor Swift) on repeat, like seriously I’m pretty sure I listened to only that song for my thirty minute commute yesterday. I’ve also become even MORE obsessed with stalking Taylor Swift than I already was (which I pretty much assumed was impossible without Taylor personally issuing a restraining order). I am SO beyond excited for 1989 to come out (OCTOBER 27th) and all of her recent interviews are just gold. Crazy stalkers like me live for new material like this, I literally sit in my cubicle on my lunch break at work reading Taylor interviews and writing down my favorite quotes from each one. If that’s not pathetic, I don’t know what is. Also when it comes to this whole Taylor vs. Katy feud, can anyone actually believe Taylor is the mean one in this situation? Don’t even get me started on Katy Perry, she’s essentially a Kim Kardashian with moderate talent and has argued multiple times that she is not a feminist. Her opinions are void in my mind officially.
Sept|I have the absolute biggest style crush on Spencer Hastings from Pretty Little Liars. Seriously, every single outfit she wears I want to steal. Her preppy equestrian style is all I could ever dream of in a Fall wardrobe. Everyone keep reminding me that I’m saving money so I can afford…you know, an apartment and a bed when I move back to Seattle.
I realize the title of this blog has absolutely nothing to do with the content other than they both contain the number seven. However I’m estimating that reading this post took approximately seven minutes and that maybe this particular post felt a little bit like heaven (because you love learning more about me so much). No? Just humor me here.
Have a wonderful weekend Pretty Pretty Princesses! My weekend plans include a hot bath catching up on the latest Fall fashion magazines, Saturday morning yoga followed by brunch and of course curating the perfect Birthday care package for my best friend, Nicole, who is turning 22 on the 23rd. What are your plans?
P.S. If it is appropriate to wear jeans on “Casual Friday” is also appropriate to wear a tutu? I don’t mean like a raver tutu of course, a really classy Carrie Bradshaw tutu obviously. I’m a little hesitant to ask…
