Let’s Try Something Different.

by katelin on May 8, 2014

One thing you might not know about me is that I’m weird about fruit. Textures drive me bonkers and just, it’s hard to get past it sometimes.

So on my 30th birthday, sitting at the spa when they presented me with a plate full of fruit, I decided to give it a whirl. Why not try an orange again. It had been years since my last attempt and for some reason my 30th birthday seemed like a good reason to give it a whirl.

And I still disliked it.

But at least I tried right?

Since then, I’ve sort of resolved to give things a try again and see if I change my mind. It’s a new decade, new promise and perhaps I’ve changed and I didn’t even know it.

So far I’ve grown my nails as long as they’ve ever been (not in a creepy way but more like a “oh hey, you look fancy with normal length and painted nails” kind of way), I’ve driven for two weeks wearing shoes (I notoriously drive shoe-less, much to Matt’s dismay) and I’ve been rocking my newly acquired Sperry boat shoes (thanks to my sister!), a look I never thought I could pull off.

I don’t know what I’ll be trying next but I’m looking forward to whatever it will be.


Have you tried anything new or different lately?


happy thursday!

  • As you know, I love those boat shoes. I may have to hit up the Rack this weekend to see if they have any here =) I’ve been looking for a pair that color for so long.

    Anyway- what I’ve been doing differently: putting thought into my daily outfits for work, which includes accessories. It’s a big deal if I put on a bracelet! Actually reading the magazines I get rather than letting them sit & collect dust. Listening to new music and, this is huge for me, talk radio in the morning on my way to work!

    Maybe this post will push me to wear red lipstick. I feel like a kid just rocking my Chapstick all the time!
