When begining a blog it's important to establish what you're all about right off the bat. Well, I'm "about" a lot of things and these things are changing all the time. However, everyone that knows me can agree on one thing: I love purple. The color itself has been a favorite of mine since childhood. Many pieces of my clothing are in shades of purple. My nails currently painted purple and I've been known to wear my share of purple make-up. But my affinity for the color goes further than the objects I surround myself with. Purple has become a metaphor for my life.

In my opinion there are two kinds of people in the world: the colorful people and the beige people:

The colorful people are unique personalities with something special to say. They have been places and done things making their characters rich with depth. They're passionate, electric and contagious because they take risks, challenge themselves and lead with confidence. They have no one look and no one soundtrack. They're the Angelina Jolie's of the world, sometimes polarizing but never boring.

On the other end of the spectrum are the beige people. The beige follow a stringint set of rules regarding what to say, what to wear, what to like and what to think. They go to the same places and do the same things as most everyone else leaving them nothing much to say and little perspective in life. JCrew is their uniform and Coldplay is their soundtrack*. These are the Jennifer Anistons of the world, rarely polarizing but always boring.
*NOTE: JCrew is fine in moderation*

My philosophy in life is to be a colorful person, more specifically a purple girl. I seek to step out of my comfort zone and challenge myself with experiences that will enrich my existance. I want to be the kind of person I myself am drawn to, someone who has seen and done it all. After all, it was the colorful girl that got Brad in the end :)
