Well, Oprah might not have really said that. But I’ve been spending a lot of time lately thinking about how to pay it forward. I’m trying to put some positivity out in the universe in hopes that it will come back to me. That’s what Oprah says I should do.
BTW- my spell check says positivity is not a word. Apparently my spell check has never met Oprah.
Today I am going to pay it forward by telling you about my friend Jeanne and her awesome new company, Tomboy Vintage. Jeanne is very much a girl, just not a girly girl. She grew up a tomboy (with six older brothers she didn’t have much choice) and is very proud of that. She still embraces her tomboy spirit – she’s active and adventurous and has confidence that she can do whatever boys can (she can, even Oprah thinks so).
Jeanne is an artist and decided she wanted to use her talent to create a cute tee shirt for tomboys that are all grown-up. She totally nailed it. Her shirts are awesome. Here is her most popular design right here…
I have that shirt BTW – it’s adorable. If I had clean hair and make-up on right now I’d have Dave snap a photo of me and show you what I look like in the shirt. But I don’t. I look like I haven’t had a shower in two days (which might or might not be true) and I am trying to pay it forward and I think if you saw a photo of me in this shirt right now looking all nasty with dirty hair and no make-up you wouldn’t want to buy it and it would be the opposite of paying it forward – it would be like paying it backwards and making some sort of bad karma debt!
This shirt is also adorable…
I think I will get it next.
AND because Jeanne is super cool and likes to give a little extra, when you purchase a shirt you get a paper doll!
Check out the rest of Jeanne’s shirts by going to her website: http://www.tomboyvintage.com. You should. They’re totally cute! Do it now. (Then come back!)
And if YOU want to pay it forward as well you can:
1. Forward this blog to your entire mailing list (or maybe just 2 0r 3 people on it) 🙂
2. Follow @tomboyvintage on Twitter.
3. Like Tomboy Vintage on Facebook.
4. Follow Tomboy Vintage’s pins on Pinterest.
5. If you like what you see, buy a shirt for yourself or a friend. (The holidays are coming…)
There… don’t you feel better?
One thing’s for sure – these cute shirts will definitely put a smile on your face. And if that isn’t spreading positivity, I don’t know what is.
One more thing… I wonder if alerting the Word Press spell check crew that according to Google (and Oprah) positivity really is a word would be a way to pay it forward even more.
Just a thought…
