#2 on my Bucket List is “Have a drastic makeover”…
When I coined this Bucket List, I think, in my head, I had an image of me walking into a Hairdressing Salon, handing over my hard earned cash (and a lot of it with the prices of just getting your hair cut these days!) and changing everything. Long hair becomes short. Blonde becomes brunette. Pale, neutral make-up becomes dark and sultry. In theory, it’ll be magical. A whole new me! But reality is far from simple.
I have been sat in front of my mirror with a bunch different types of make-up; from bronzer all the way to lip liner, for around half an hour. I still don’t have a clue what I am doing.
That’s when it hit me. Yes, this ‘new look’ may make me look prettier (or prettier in the eyes of society) yet, it wouldn’t reflect who I am! I started asking myself, is there any point of walking outside if nobody can see who I really am? And what if I meet a boy? He wouldn’t be interested in plain old me, but in this facade I’ve created that coincide with today’s fashion. And trust me, ask anybody, I don’t know anything about fashion…
So its settled. My drastic makeover will be a new me. But a me that isn’t afraid to show who she really is. A me who will wear her cowboy boots with pride, and drive my Daisified car with flowers in my hair. Because it’s who I am. I would never expect someone to change for me, so why should I change, or hide, from society?
Stay tuned for my completed make-over and completion of #2 on my Bucket List!
