Things I Refuse

I read Helene's blog post this am and loved it so much that I decided to do it for my blog. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

Things I Refuse...

//Rock this look. Ever.
Sorry, but the Native American headband-slash-messy hair-slash-fishtail braid makes me throw up a little in my mouth.
Neon Headband Tie Dye Yarn Hair Band Boho Style por RaydiantApparel

//Go whitewater rafting again.
Never. I fell out once and drifted downstream for awhile until someone could fish me out. No way, no thanks.

I don't get it. Maybe that's why I refuse to do it. But it's so hyped up and masculine and adrenaline junky weird, that I can say with much intestinal fortitude that I refuse.

//Wear Uggs.
Uggs are some really ug(g)ly boots. Even if I like that awkward club-foot look, I wouldn't wear them considering the animal cruelty charges against them (they use sheepskin instead of just the wool). That makes them even uglier to me!

//Wear anything with fringe.
No thank you.
Best part is I already have everything to make this outfit, including my favorite fringe boots!
//Eat seafood.
I know it's weird, but I just can't get down with it. I can tolerate tuna from a pouch but that's it. No fish, no shrimp, no crab...nothing that swims!
//Pollute desserts with the addition of nuts.
Why?!?!?! Just no.
//To rock a nude lip.
Those are for people with tans.
//Have a bird for a pet.
They just creep me out, for real.

What do you refuse to do?


  1. I refuse to eat mushrooms...they creep me out and remind me of something a dog pees on....

  2. Yours make me laugh! The fringe!

    I refuse to wear jerseys or camo. (How different we are!) The only exception would be a quidditch jersey. : )

    I refuse to eat spicy mustard. Vomit. Also, I am 1000% with you on the nuts in dessert.

  3. I will never understand crossfit. I think big muscles on girls are groooosssss. I will eat enough seafood for the both of us. I hate to admit it, but I own fugs (fake ugs from payless). I have to admit they are comfy when I just want to bum it to the store with a pair of leggings and oversized shirt. I would never where them out if I was actually going some where.

  4. Ditto everything except the nude lip (i rock those when my lipstick wears off and I don't know it), seafood, and I want to say I'd have a bird but I probably wouldn't.

  5. I agree with you, with a few exceptions: I love seafood, I think nuts in dessert provide a nice salty counterpoint to the sweetness (I rarely eat nuts though, because my daughter is highly allergic), and I rock a nude lip (but, although I'm very pale, I do have a lot of natural lip color and very dark hair).

    I refuse to:
    1) Read Twilight. If you want a good vampire book try Sunshine by Robin McKinley.
    2) Wear a scarf unless it's insanely cold out.
    3) Wear a statement necklace ever. (Sorry, not sorry)
    4) Eat squirrel stew (my father-in-law makes it).

  6. Awww for the most part I agree but I have to say a classy vintage Flapper Dress can look really cute even with fringe hehe :) I mostly refuse to overdo my make up...I know girls that cake it on...To me less can be more! :)

  7. I'm so with you on the headband thing....AND the fringe. Blech.

  8. hahaha these are hilarious! Why is it that so many dessert recipes or restaurant desserts have nuts in them?! Gross.


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
