Yesterday I went to IKEA, I am a little bit obsessed with IKEA, every time I come home from Uni a trip to IKEA always takes place. Why? Well, I seem to have developed a passion for interior design, furniture, bed linen, cups, saucers, you name it, just house things. So much so that in the last few weeks of me going shopping mad, I have probably bought more things for my student house and room at home (including a ton of interior design mags) than anything else, like shoes clothes etc.
Yesterday I bought....
So as you can probably see there is a very distinct trend in everything I bought. There seems to be just a very small amount of flowers going on, only a small hint of course... who am I kidding! I think maybe I have gone floral mad! I just think it all looks so pretty!
In all honesty I am not quite sure what has happened to me, when I was growing up I was a complete tom boy, and then everything changed! People that have known me more recently would probably never believe that I was ever anything but the extremely girly girl I am now!
The picture above was my permanent state of dress! But in year 11 at senior school I changed, I began to love makeup, clothes, pink and flowers! However although I may have become more girly I still will muck into everything and am never afraid to get my hands dirty! I just love flowers and nail varnish and I am not ashamed of it! I can be girly and not be looked down upon. Some people always want to put you in a box, to stereotype you. They seem to think that if you're girly you are shallow and thick, and I have to say I feel really sorry for those people. People are made up of many layers and just because you are girly doesn't mean that you can't be interested in politics or I don't know, wrestling! Just as if you are a manly builder you can also love baking cup cakes! The world is a wonderful place made up for all different sorts of people all of which should be embraced for their strange quirks and individualities!
So this blog took a strange twist of direction, but I am rolling with it! So my advice is, embrace what you love and don't be held back by what others think you of you!
