Who run the world? Girls! In the words of Beyonce… We girls are “Strong enough to bear the children then get back to business”. Which is true if you ask me.
Today I am teaming up with Vera Bradley on why it’s good to be a girl. Although, it may sound kinda cheesy, I love being a girl and being a girly girl. Ever since I was a little one I loved getting ready and feeing looking pretty. I would always sneak into my sisters closet to try on her clothes and heels too. Gosh, I would get in so much trouble by doing so, but it never stopped me (haha!!). My sister’s closet was stacked high with heels, and I would try every single one of them on. I would play with her lipstick, so much that I actually ruined her dresser with lipstick. Oh the stories I have of doing things way too soon. I tried shaving my legs, and mind you I was like 9 at the time. BUT let me tell you that did not end well, I still have the scar on my legs.
I hope one day that I can have a girl to share the mani’s & pedi’s- really all things girly with. My house is filled with nothing but cars, footballs, and action figures.
So in celebration of all things girlhood (I know that’s not a word, just roll with it!) lets talk about why I love being a girl;
1. We can dress up with accessories. hello diamonds! Not just diamonds, but I love playing with dainty accessories, and making a tee and jeans look elevated.
2. Give me all the shoes. Heels, wedges, lace ups, OTK boots- those are just a few! Shoes are my thing, hence the tag line of the blog… living life one heel at a time. I was 9 months pregnant and still wearing heels, and I had no shame in my game! I also could convince Jordan for a foot rub every night too!
3. You can never have enough purses! I gotta admit my purse obsession is just as big as my shoe collection. The more the merrier! I remember telling Jordan I would stop buying purses…and that lasted for two weeks. Besides when you have adorable bags with the cutest designs, how can you hold back?!
4. Lipstick a day keeps the doctor away. Lipstick is one of the best ways to show off your personality, in my opinion. I had a thing with lip glosses for as long as I can remember. My love for lipsticks and glosses have only grown over the years. Besides, you can never go wrong with a red lip. And we have national lipstick day for a reason!
I love being a girl! There is nothing more fun then to be a girl, I love dressing up and having all the items above that make me feel like a girl! Share why #itsgoodtobeagirl on Facebook, twitter, or IG and lets celebrate being girls!
