I allowed myself my first Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew today and to switch to my new Loungelfy Hocus Pocus mini backpack and I love it! It is the start of my favorite season. If you are thinking it’s too early in the season and I say I waited as long as I could possibly control myself. It brings me joy – take that shit somewhere else. You wanna put up your Christmas tree now? DO IT! You wanna hold on to those last days of summer well into winter? DO IT. Do what gives you joy and makes your days a little more fun. Embrace your ‘basic’ – it takes a sense of courage to like what you like when someone is trying to label you. Wear the label with pride and take it back – but we’ve talked about this in previous years 😉
Today’s theme enhanced Halloween Style with one of the best
And I am hoping it’s better then the rest of the year has been for the world. I am also excited to see the pandemic pun costumes people post this year. I just tried Marty’s Halloween costume on him – he is going to be a spider. He was not thrilled with it but also not too miserable. I also need to switch him to his glow int he dark Halloween collar. If you have just started reading my blog you should now I live Halloween (and fall right into NYE).
It’s also the time of Pumpkin everything which I love because I am basic bitch and damn proud. I will like what I like dangit! Also, my allergies are back to not terrible so hooray! October is wonderful and I hope it brings some magic into your world.
Do you love fall, pumpkin all, and all Hallows Eve? Speak out loud and proud with me!
…and stop putting that label on people…especially other women.
I am extremely over people using the term basic as an insult and judgement of things that bring people joy. I feel like this term originated with fall, pumpkin, and women. Somehow finding joy in pumpkin, fall decor and the season means you are a sheep with no original taste – especially if you are a woman.
I am saying it loud and proud I LOVE FALL, HALLOWEEN, and PUMPKIN and I am not sorry. You can call me basic, I wont change or feel bad about things that bring me joy because of your judgment. Why are people making other people feel bad for things they enjoy? Like what you like and don’t apologize. I believe this is critical to setting your own p(e)ace.
I am proposing we take this word back and I am not alone. Check out some of the posts, memes, and products below. Basic bitches unite!
Great article on being a proud basic bitch and kicking off others judgement!
