Ways to Embrace Your Femininity Without Covering Yourself in Pink Frills

Ways to Embrace Your Femininity Without Covering Yourself in Pink Frills

When most people think of femininity they think of pink and frills and fluffy things. They think of the “girls” section of the baby department, where everything is light and pink at every corner. 

As someone who may not be into pink but wants to embrace your femininity, that’s not a great way to embrace that side of you. However, there are other ways to embrace being feminine and have a more “soft” personality that goes along with femininity. 

I’m going to go through a few that I like that don’t involve wearing a pink dress.

Spring Cleaning Areas You Might Not Think About Tidying Up

Spring Cleaning Areas You Might Not Think About Tidying Up

I don’t know about you, but when I think of Spring Cleaning I think of when I was a kid and my father would wake up one morning and decided it was time to clean the house. And when I say clean the house, I mean the whole damn house. One of my least favorite things involved were taking apart the windows and cleaning them individually and washing the walls.

But besides the physical cleaning of various things in your home, there are so many other areas of your life that you can give a spring clean! I’m going to list some of the places that we might not think of when in a Spring Cleaning fever.

Top 4 Decluttering and Cleaning YouTubers

Top 4 Decluttering and Cleaning YouTubers

 

I’ve recently become super into the idea of decluttering and cleaning, and no, I don’t have Netflix, and have not seen a single second of Marie Kondo’s Tidying Up. But man, have I heard all about it!

The concept of Marie Kondo, the KonMari method of decluttering, isn’t something new to me. She’s been around for ages. I first stumbled across her and her method on the sub-reddit r/minimalism.

In fact, her best-selling book The Life – Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing was published in 2011! That’s almost 10 years ago. 

So, now that spring cleaning is something a lot of us have on our mind, I’m going to list you my top youtubers who are involved in decluttering, cleaning, minimalism, and/or frugality.

My Love-Hate Relationship With Spring

My Love-Hate Relationship With Spring

Spring is such a great season, especially if you live in an area where winter seems to drag on. The official first days of spring were a little while ago, but it’s still a bit cold where I live.

I also have a love-hate relationship with spring. I love all the warmth and brightness that comes along with it, but having a pollen allergy so sever it basically confines me to my apartment for most of the warmer months, it’s a bit of a pain in the butt.

Sometimes Your Best Isn’t Enough (and that’s okay)

Sometimes Your Best Isn't Enough (and that's okay)

I’m still fresh from watching my college alma mater lose one of the most heartbreaking losses of my college basketball watching career. They had 6 seniors, overcame a 26 point deficit to tie the game and send it into overtime TWICE! But apparently their best just wasn’t enough and they lost by 5 points in the end.

It was heartbreaking. I cried. Players cried. I’m sure parents and coaches cried. 

They spent the whole year training for that moment, for a time to shine and prove they were worth it to get to the championship game. But it wasn’t enough.

So what happens when instead of a basketball game it’s your job, or relationship, or life? What if you try so damn hard, you come back and fight through the odds, only to end up losing it in the end?

Why It’s Okay to Embrace Your Feminine Side When You’ve Always Been a Tomboy

Why It's Okay to Embrace Your Feminine Side When You've Always Been a Tomboy

I was always a tomboy growing up. I hated dresses and having to dress up. I’m not really sure why I hated dresses at the time, I guess I just really preferred pants and being able to run around freely without fear of my dress flying up.

Anyway, I’m now almost 30 and my views on femininity and more traditionally girly things has changed. I’m more apt to things that are pink and frilly (on occasion), I’ve recently discovered my love of glitter and glittery things, especially eyeshadow.

So what happens when you’ve always been a pants and t-shirt kinda gal and years, even decades later, you’ve decided that maybe dresses and skirts aren’t so bad after all? Now that you have an office job, dressing up every now and again doesn’t sound so bad.
