The Dateless Wonder

Friday, September 24, 2010

One of the things I love about the blogger Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere is that she always seems so polished and together. Organized. Never a hair out of place, its as if she rolls out of bed with a new shade of lipstick on and designer heels strapped to her feet. I love going to her blog because it feels like dropping in on some sort of fantasy life where I can think "my life will be like that one day".

Its 4:30 pm on Friday and I am still wearing my pajamas and drinking a bottle of pop that has gone flat from sitting out all night. I am so not that girl. And I'm trying to be okay with that.

I'm thinking about this now in particular because I am newly single, and many of my favorite bloggers have boyfriends (a "guy behind the camera".) Often these boyfriends go unnamed, are wickedly attractive, and work in some form of media entertainment (MTV, Band, Professional Photographer). Though I'm a hopeless romantic, and think love is a most wonderful thing, I'm also learning now that my self worth should not and cannot be based on whether or not someone wants to be with me. Perhaps one day, I will have a wickedly attractive musician photographer art media guru boyfriend who takes beautiful pictures of my polished bad ass self, but until then, I'm just gonna do my thing and take pictures on my makeshift tripod. All the single girls are doing it.

My mom says I'm going to be okay, I "just need to take a shower." haha!

Thank you so much for the comment. Some bloggers are like actresses at the oscars and some bloggers are like the tabloids of them that show up in the mags the next day "They get relish on their face" "They shop at the grocery store". Pretty happy to be in the latter category! Glad to see you've still got your blog going!

I love your haircolour and the color of your skin. Haha <3


Jenny said...

Aw thank you. I just checked out your blog and can't figure out how to leave a comment on your stylish posts. I will revisit after I take a nap, (blame on on fatigue) haha.

I personally prefer girls who are un-polished and enjoy drinking flat soda in the afternoon while still wearing sleep clothes ... but I'm pretty sure I'm one of those girls too.

I also make myself makeshift tripods all the time (which usually consists of precarious boxes stacked onto other boxes) and I'm usually happier with those photos then the ones my boyfriend tries to take for me ... so, boyfriends shmoyfriends!

And with hair like that, I can't imagine you're going to be single for very long!!!

You and me both girl. You are absoloutely fantastic, perfect and polished in your Jenny way and I would not want to see it any other way, in case you were wondering.
