Top Five Tuesday – Stores That Scare Me

Stores That Scare Me

  1. At Home – IT IS ALL TOO MUCH!!! I cannot even buy anything because I am so overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of items. They can never be the store where I say “Oh At Home has that, I can run right in….” I mean the variety is great but holy smokes it is all too much for me! 
  2. Ulta – Oh ladies, please wear less makeup. I realize you have to sell the products, but for those of us who barely wear makeup, or want to try, we are scared of it ALL! And how many products ARE there?! WOWSA. I thought there were lots of makeup counters at Macys but this is just overwhelming. 
  3. Kohl’s – I want to like Kohl’s, I DO! Especially since they carry Lauren Conrad and I am a fan from afar. Afar, because I don’t want to admit I loved that show she was on. 
  4. Target – I LOVE Target. I am scared because I love it TOO much!!!!!! NO fair. Books,  films, JoAnna Gaines’ stuff, cute home stuff. AAAAH 
  5. TJMaxx – Same as Target. SIGH!!!

Top Five Tuesday – Trends That Scare Me

Trying my hand again at Top Five Tuesdays in order to get more writing in!

Trends That Scare Me:

  1. Minimalism – Get rid of all your stuff?! Own a total of 10 items?! Clutter is so bad for you!  Have you no stake in your personal history? Preserving the past? A PERSONALITY???  
  2. Keyboard Warriors – You know who they are and chances are you have probably wasted your time fighting with them on Facebook. Honestly, no one is going to remember what you wrote on Facebook and no one cares. Grow up. 
  3. Amazon Prime – Order today and get it at your doorstop in 2 days.
    Are we seriously THAT lazy that we cannot wait a few days and go to the store to buy stuff? My mom worked a full time job, had dinner on the table for my Dad and didn’t need Amazon Prime. She didn’t have the luxury of smartphones and answers at her fingertips. Don’t tell me you are too busy. How could we be busier if we have so many resources to help us save time?
  4. Smart Appliances – Fine, I will be the first to admit I love my smartphone but really do we need a smart fridge? Smart car? Don’t give up your freedom and using your brain the good old fashioned way.

  5. Selfies – Seriously, just stop. Have someone else snap your photo so it isn’t always your point of view! You just might learn how beautiful you are by seeing yourself through someone else’s perspective.
