    Ha! I can definitely relate with this one: “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.” I just trimmed my hair & gave myself Zooey Deschanel bangs. I feel so different, & now I feel like I have all these new possibilities for my wardrobe & makeup!

    I absolutely loved all of these quotes. I am going to have to bookmark this post so I can come back & read them every now & again. Thank you for following me on Bloglovin’. I definitely gave you a follow back.

    I really love “If you really want to be original, be ready to be copied.” That really resonated with me. I’m not one of those people who gets offended when someone copies me (imitation is the sincerest form of flattery), but one of my best friends who happens to be a photographer gets extremely offended. Photography is competitive, and she has such a fresh and unusual stile that copycats are breathing down her neck. I tell her to take it in stride…it’s inevitable. I’ll share this great Coco quote with her!

    Interesting quotes. I like the last one a lot as I tend to think out loud. Live that way too!

  • Mariam April 4, 2016 at 6:11 PM

    Yes to all of this! I LOVE the quote about being different to be irreplaceable – especially as it applies to style blogging. I feel like so many people post the same thing, wear the same thing, and don’t have a distinctive personality. That’s why I love our group so much! There’s so much diversity and personal style.
