The older I get, the more and more I realize that being a bit out of the ordinary isn't a bad thing.  Rarely do I get to see blockbuster films; I get more pleasure from documentaries and the indie circuit.  If you have to wait months to get a table at a resturant, I'm not that list.  I rather visit that cozy neighborhood eatery.

I don't go for "the" designer bag or "the" signature bracelet.  I would much rather spend money on vintage one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted finds.  For anyone who has ever worried about fitting in or being totally "on trend" or in the "loop," it's nice to let it all go and embrace the idea of following your own path.  After all, why be traditional? 

Sometimes mixing things up can bring a totally new and exciting outlook or angle.  For example: feng shui, holistic healing like Reiki, soap making, visiting farmers' markets; unearthing the creative side by exploring handcrated pottery, canoeing, watching wild life, or dining by the water.  Anything to get you out of the norm and encounter sweet escapes will enhance your life.  So go for it!  Cheers!!


  1. Totally agree ... great post today! Not one to be a mainstreamer.

  2. I know what you mean. I just bought one-off art-deco-style rug, which I've placed alongside a completely different art-deco-style rug. Others might think it looks weird, but to me it offers an endless variety of patterns to enjoy.

  3. reena - I know you are definately NOT mainstream. LOL! Cheers!!

    Val - I love art-deco style. I love mixing styles, time-periods. Anything that makes your heart sing - I say, "go for it." You only have to please yourself. Cheers!!

  4. What a great post!! I have never been trendy. Lately though, my life has become so oridnary.... I know,.. my fault. I guess I need to give myself a swift kick and get moving.
