Ha! I am being sneaky today! I decided to combine Zero To Hero challenge with Daily Prompt (they conveniently match today). As you can see, I customized the background with a blue pattern I made in Photoshop. One thing you must know about me: I am obsessed with color blue. It’s my favorite color. I like all things blue, and if I could get away with it, my future house would be blue… all over.
As far as my style goes… hmmmm… let’s see….
As far as clothes and fashion go… I like casual elegance, if that even is a style. I prefer jeans and I believe jeans can look elegant with the right accessories. I don’t like skinny jeans (I am skinny.. way too skinny and I think I look like a twig in skinny jeans). I prefer flare bottom jeans like these:
I adore scarfs, in all shapes and forms, the longer and the fuzzier the better. I love turtle necks. If I’m at home, you can usually find me in sweat pants, and in my trusty blue robe (which my husband got for me and since I can’t get re-used to cold since we came to Croatia from Florida, it has become my best friend #2). I love boots but I am not a fan of high heels. They kill my back and I feel uncomfortable wearing them. You will rarely find me in a skirt or a dress which drives my husband nuts but I just don’t feel comfortable in a skirt//dress. I guess the biggest selling point for me to wear something is it has to be comfortable. I prefer blue/grey/black color combinations with hints of beige, which on the other hand drives my mother nuts.
Moving on to looks… I am a pretty simple gal in that aspect. I hate make up because it feels like I have plaster all over my face so on the rare occasions I do wear make up (when I feel like it, unless I know I am going to be doing something that requires me showing up all dolled up) it’s usually just mascara and lip gloss. I prefer earth tones which again drives my mother nuts. (Can you see a repeating trend here? I swear I am not a rebellious teenager, it’s just my mother and I are THAT different, and since we are currently living with her….you get the point). I dislike my God given hair color (to me it looks like a puked on grey mouse, even though some have said it was ash blonde… I refrained myself from telling them they must be color-blind… it had nothing to do with ash blonde) so I dye my hair to a dark reddish-brown color which I am perfectly happy with because I think it brings out the color of my eyes. Aaaaaaand yup, you guessed it… do I really need to type it out again?
Let’s tackle books next? I am a bookworm… I used to devour books and was the happiest when I could read, and read and then read some more. I enjoy a good piece of literary fiction, be it a historical novella or a modern day thriller. My favorite book is For Love Of Evil by Piers Anthony, followed by Blue Adept by the same author, and then The Little Prince by Antoine De-Saint Exupery.
I think that gives you plenty of insight into my personality so I will leave you with this for now. Any other women out there who hate make up as much as I do or am I alone in this?
