Fancy Up

I’m not opposed to fancy.

It looks quite intriguing to me,

On others.

I’ve discovered

That the more I try to fancy up

The more frustrated I am in life.


I am-

Plain and simple

(Does not mean dull or without thought.)

No frills

(Means the substance is all it needs to be.)


(Just straight forward.)

When the world wants embellishment

I am lost.

Fancy and me

Can be friends.

But that’s all.

And we are both okay with that.

  1. I think there’s a lot to be valued in a woman who doesn’t require accessories to be whole! You’re the “real deal,” Colleen, and that’s the best!


  2. You are just the way we were meant to be. There is nothing wrong with simple it is beautiful. I love dressing up when I go to the theater or something special. However I can spend no more than two minutes and I am in my cozy cotton bottoms, and a baggy comfy shirt. Even the makeup with be coming off. I don’t find it comfortable. Have you seen those magnetic eyelashes, the thought of that is scary. If I got those so I could have long eyelashes all the screws in the house would likely fly towards me and stick to my face. Haha Cozy is lovely. πŸ€—β€οΈπŸ’•πŸ₯°

    • I HAVE seen those eyelashes! I have trouble enough keeping my own eye lashes out of my eyeballs. The things people come up with …. and thank you dear Joni for the validation. I need it. πŸ™‚ ❀️
