You may recall I love Zevia soda - which surprised me more than anyone. A decade-long devotee to Diet Pepsi, it's amazing I could love a sugar free, caffeine free, calorie free anything, right?
I wanted to post about them again because they are currently running a cool contest called #ZeviaStyle, highlighting how people shine in their own unique way whether that be in the kitchen, the gym, in fashion, beauty, parenting, work - whatever is special to you! The are curating pic posts AND are giving away loads of prizes including a $100 Target gift card every day, just for the best style pics on Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag, #ZeviaStyle.
Here are some of my favorite entries so far...
(I bet you're craving sushi now. I know I am.)
And so Zevia has challenged ME to talk about what makes me special and unique. Which is actually harder than I thought it would be because, as you know, despite having a personal blog, I actually very seldom get that personal.... :)
I started thinking about it. A lot. What makes me unique? What gives me my style? This is some realness, guys. This is the deepness.
Here is what I arrived at. This blog is the very essence of my style. It's very name basically proclaims that everything here is my confession, right? I've been blogging for more than ten years now and I think that makes me pretty unique, too. When I started blogging, it was a Doogie Howser style online diary I created in HTML on a Geocities website. Not long after I cut deeper with more personal admissions -- my first confessions. My craziness.
And eventually, that is what lead me here. COFG. My quintessential style. Because here, my slogan is not just that I'm going to spill on myself and trip over things, but also that it's MY BLOG AND I'LL CRY IF IT WANT TO.
And outside of my little corner of the universe? My friends make me unique. My family. My job. My skills and my talent. My cynicism and refusal to take anything too seriously. That I sleep with a tonf of blankets and pillows and hate any cooked vegetable that smells funny -- which is a lot of them.
Challenge accepted, Zevia. Thanks for making me do some soul-searching this week.
