Lorraine Peterson said it best when she said “Anyone can be cool, but awesome takes practice”. It’s one of my favorite quotes and I just so happened to receive that quote as a magnet this year for my birthday from my homeslice Amanda (check her out on twitter @amandaxanderson).
I’ve always been a fan of quotes. I’m not sure when I developed my love for a “quotable quote” but I think it originated from my love of reading. I remember writing down quotes from movies and my American Girl books when I was younger to be sure I wouldn’t forget them. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not some weirdo with quotes plastered all over my walls but I do get down with an affirmation or two every once in a while and if I come across a quote I like I write it down. In fact, I have some quotable quotes taped on the mirror in my bathroom that most people find quite funny and quirky, I myself find it a great way to start my day; well, that and an outdoor shower (#bestlifeever).
The top orange index card (note the leopard duck tape, Dollar Tree score!) reads: “Cocky is egotistical, confident is just cool” ~Michael from Top Chef. That index card just oozes truth. It’s a fine line between cocky and egotistical but if you can dance along that line, whether you are a man or a woman, it’s hot.
Then there is the three fortune cookie fortunes:
- You will find great fortune in unexpected places.
- You will have a new exciting business adventure.
- As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters not point your way.
Next a cute little insert from a Birchbox a few months back; Phenomenal, Magical, Adventurous, Creative, and Smart Cookie.
Then a recap of one of my favorite videos. If you haven’t seen Ashton Kutcher‘s mind blowing rant on the kids choice awards yet do yourself a favor and #getwiththegets. There really are no words, it’s perfect. The purple post it pretty much sums it up: Being Sexy: Smart, Thoughtful, Generous. Well hot damn, I must be sexy as hell then!
Finally an insert from a Kate Spade purchase. It reads “she had a cocktail in her hand and confetti in her hair”. I mean seriously if that doesn’t have my name written all over it I don’t know what does.
