I’m hardly what you’d call the domesticated goddess. I hate cleaning, like hate. Washing dishes is a form of torture for me. I think it’s all the years of living alone and having no one to clean up after me (and laziness, a lot of laziness). It’s a must-do not a wan to. I’m actually quite a lover of baking funny enough, the one thing I don’t eat…pastries, puddings and cake. Cooking is not that bad either I love trying new recipes but not as much and I love eating them.
So being a women is associated with all these duties, quite frankly I’m more of an equality kind of girl, ‘if I can wash dishes so can you darling’ is my thinking. So I wondered what makes you feminine? The way the dress obviously plays a large role in what peoples first impressions of you are…do you ever dress to present yourself a certain way?
For the most part I am conscious of where I’m going and to be appropriate for that situation but a large part of me rebels. I don’t want to be stereotypically what people expect. Perfect. No I don’t like those things. Femine. Ethereal. Beautiful. I always want an edge. Something that sets me apart. I think it’s important, I think that when you discover your style or your style evolves that you always remain true to your personality. Who you are. Not who you are told to be.
