Normal everyday secrets

Everyone has secrets. Big secrets, little secrets. Stuff only you know about yourself that is completely normal. If you haven't read "Can you keep a Secret?" by Sophie Kinsella go read it! It's really cute, especially if you're a fan of the Shopaholic series.
Here are my secrets:

1. My favorite purse is a fake Coach purse that I got while vacationing in the Bahamas. Every time I carry it I get compliments and it makes me giggle a little because it's fake!

2. I hate Vera Bradley. There I said it. I know it is a very popular brand and many, many people just love it but I just don't!

3. I have a very bad habit of picking at my face. I'm a picker. It's disgusting and horrible for your skin but I just can't help it, if I see the beginnings of a blemish I have to attack it immediately!

4. I love being tan and going to the tanning bed but I'm secretly terrified I will end up with skin cancer.

5. I have never seen a ton of classic movies that "everyone" has seen. For example, Stand by Me and Spaceballs. Does this make me weird?

6. I tried out for the cheerleading squad twice in high school before finally making it on the team. Most people assume I was on the team all four years.

7. I love having blue eyes and I love the compliments I get on them but I have always wanted deep dark chocolate brown eyes. I even got brown contacts once but they made me look like a psycho.

8. I secretly wonder if one of my best friend's husband hates all her friends.

9. I approve pretty much anyone on Facebook just to have more friends. I don't know why, I'm really not that shallow. I just like watching the number go up. Then I get irritated when there's someone on there from high school that I didn't like.

10. I still love reading Cosmopolitan but I feel like I should have already outgrown it by now.

I loved your secrets, but now they aren't secrets anymore! I also loved that Sophie Kinsella book. I might have to do my own list of secrets now. :)

Oh, and Vera Bradley--well, I am sort of undecided on that. I don't own any Vera bags but I would kind of like to use one for travel. On the other hand, I find myself often thinking they look like diaper bags, which I most definitely do not need. But to be honest, I did like the limited edition pink pinwheel fabric as well as the one with pink elephants!!

And all my Coach bags are real and I get annoyed when people think my Louis Vuitton bag is a fake. The only thing I bought in the Bahamas was a straw Hello Kitty bag.

I love all of Sophie Kinsella's books. She's awesome!

I guess my secret for the day is that I just ate two mini toblerones and I'm pretending I didn't so I can still have chinese food tonight! Haha

I LOVE Sophie Kinsella books. They are the best!

I've never either heard of those movies, so I don't that that's weird.

I do, however, LOVE Vera so booo! But I understand, lol.

Amber said...

LOL, Jess I thought of you as I was writing that "secret"! I hope you're not offended!

I agree with you on #5. There are so many movies that I haven't seen that "everyone" has seen that I haven't seen like ET, The Godfather, Casablanca, The Way We Were. And about FB, what I really dislike is if someone adds me but then doesn't send me a message or reply to mine. Why add me? FB is to keep in touch with people so let's talk. Know what I mean?
