“Exceptional” “Outstanding” “One in a million” “Stand Out performance” …
… Just some of the words you hear every day that describe something great, but not just that, something well… exceptional. Something or somebody that is not run of the mill, but stands out from the crowd.
I was thinking about being a teenager and how for a while there, I found it hard to accept that I’d grown to my considerable adult height of 5’10” by the age of 15 when most of my buddies were still short. It’s still tall for a woman and while I’m fine with that now, I wasn’t always.
It’s not easy to be different to the rest, in whatever way it manifests itself. People look at you (death to a youngster), people might even comment, but it doesn’t have to be an embarrassing thing at all.
I’d encourage you all to stand out, stand up and get noticed. Wear bright colours, make eye-contact and be proud. We come in all different shapes and sizes, abilities and talents, styles and guises and it’s important we feel okay being us. In fact, we should feel great being ourselves.
Heads up, chests out and stride on, Thursday blog readers, I’m the tall one up front wearing something crazy and waving like I just don’t care 🙂

Ahh, do you remember the 90s? You don’t? What are you doing on your Mum’s computer at this hour then? No, seriously, I get that it was a while ago now, even though it doesn’t seem that long to me. I mean 1990 was umm… 26 year ago. Let’s take a moment… Ok.
Cynful’s Chilli jersey top is inspired by one of the outfits worn by group TLC in the 90s. Cynful themselves told me that Chilli, Left Eye and T-Boz all wore the same top but in three different ways, however they liked the Chilli style best and went for that. The top itself is a two parter, as it comes with a sports bra top underneath (you can wear it on its own) and the tshirt to go on top. I liked both, but loved the little pull strings on the upper top most.
Besom has new hair Sierra out right now at Uber, it felt like it could work for me as a part of TLC’s line up and so I whacked on the ‘washed out’ HUD and went wild.
I have more pics, including my well lit no shit…do note the very 90s chunky gold jewellery also available from Cynful at Rewind.
Finally, here is my jigging for the rigging video – what else could I do but Creep?
