Hey, It's Okay To.......

{currently reading ;-)}

I love Glamour Magazine, in fact I generally just love magazines, but Glamour is by far one of the best.
One of my favorite columns are the "Hey, it's okay to..." lists.
It's like the person writing them has some sort of inside look into my life and when I start feeling uncomfortable about something they stop and say "hey! It's okay..."

I find some of them pretty hilarious though, and I thought I would share some with you.
For those Glamour readers like me, you can just enjoy them again.

Hey, It's Okay.......

…to really enjoy crying at the movies. As in, sobbing {The notebook? how can you not!}
.…to shove it in the closet and consider your place cleaned {this person was definitely in my room} secretly hope that your exes consider you the one that got away really want to get married super-duper bad wish you came equipped with guy GPS. (Turn left at the next man to avoid heartbreak. Recalculating!)
…to be enamored with Kate & Wills and admit to loving the Royal Wedding {admits}
…to spend an hour doing your hair and makeup even if you aren’t going out anywhere
…to paint your own nails instead of paying for an over-priced manicure or pedicure {oh definitely}
…to be un-apologetically in love with someone {yes yes yes}
..... to use “you’re only young once” as an excuse to go out on a Wednesday. lay around and accomplish nothing on your day off.
...... to Put your hands in the air when Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’ comes on despite not being single. only buying magazines for the pretty pictures.
......t o ask every one of your friends for advice, then do exactly what you would’ve done pre-advice. {guilty}
..... to have to sing the alphabet a little bit in your head to know what order the letters go in

I thought I would try out my own:

Hey, It's Okay....... make 'to do lists' you are probably not going to finish anyway follow the latest fashion trend {which by the way you do not really like} just because you do not want to get left behind pick an expensive restaurant because you want to feel particularly wined and dined. get annoyed by your coupled up friends who are constantly throwing their love in your face throw on sweats and a huge jumper to go to the grocery store {you don't need to dress up for everything} pretend its your birthday at a restaurant just so you can get free dessert want all the pictures to be taken off your camera because it is easier {for you} that way

What are some of the things that make you stop and think "hey, it's okay to...." do? Would love to hear what you guys come up with!

Hope you guys enjoyed... (",) and hey, it's okay!



  1. LOL I absolutely adore this post! "Hey It's Ok" is my favorite part of Glamour too! I simply can't get enough of it. I was cracking up the entire time I was reading this. How about, hey it's okay to feel like the people that get you the best are in blogland ;)


  2. It's definitely one of my faves in Glamour, as well. ... hey it's okay to text that person and tell them you "accidentally" texted the wrong friend just as a way to get in contact with them again

  3. Love it! This is always my favorite part of Glamour too! And Christen thats a good hey it's okay.
    How about:
    It's okay to slick your hair back in a ponytail because you haven't washed it in three days.

    It's okay to wish you were still in college or high school.

    It's okay to be single!

    It's okay to spend hours on the computer reading and writing blogs!

    It's okay to go shopping at thrift stores like Goodwill, but not want to donate your own clothes there and instead take them to where you can get cash for them.

  4. It's totally OK 2 obsess over the relevance of one's blog. LOL.

  5. Erin- aaaaw I really like that one---- I feel like that ALL the time (",)

    Christen- That's a really good one, I'm so guilty of that. Good to know it's okay... and I'm not alone ;)

    Jacque- 'It's okay to slick your hair back in a ponytail because you haven't washed it in three days.' {guilty} ----- really good ones you have there!

    FFA- I'm with you on that one! BUT I've learned that as long as it is relevant to you, the rest just falls in place. (",)

  6. Hey, It's Okay To... is one of my favorite Glamour articles! Glad to know someone else loves it like I do :)

  7. I love love love this post :) I used to love the do's and don't's of glamour and really haven't read it since then...I think I would LOVE this column :) Kind of sounds like Diana Vreeland's "why don't you" column...wonder if they were inspired by her...

    Anyway,...nice to meet you...stopping by from MM

  8. Erin- Aaaaw I totally feel the same way.

    Christen- That's a really good one, I do that a lot. Glad to know I'm not alone and it's okay.
