Introducing NatNotes:The Closet Spy and the Next TopTen
Nini and I have gone over your comments and are really impressed with your answers. It really is rare that we have gathered about ourselves such kind people as our readers are and we appreciate the input. Based on that input we will be nixing WorstTen, moving forward with TopTen and are working hard on a project based on closets. I’m awful at keeping secrets so no mysteries here: I am calling the ladies whose fashion senses I most admire and begging them to peek inside their closets with a camera. Not everyone reacts well right away, but I think the NYC girls are warming up to it slowly. Why? My personal theory is that we all live in such tiny apartments that we have to get extra creative. I am really excited to share some photos of the closets.
TopTens are going to be weekly and this week’s TopTen will be based on the word HIPSTER. Not always positive connotations, right? Forget those connotations! We are going at this concept using the definition of the word as given by the Oxford American Dictionary.
hipster 1 |ˈhipstər| noun informal a person who follows the latest trends and fashions. DERIVATIVES hipsterism |-ˌrizəm| noun
The TopTen for this week will not just based on those who follow trends and make that a priority in their lives. If you dug deep enough into the word, the embodiment of it would be a person who doesn’t just follow the trends: they create the trends. Thus, TopTen this week will include those who are creative in their own right. Those who don’t try to stand out to get noticed but stand out anyway because it is in their nature. I am really excited to show you some of the blogs I have dug up! Some of them are so great but barely anyone knows about them and like I said, I’m awful at keeping secrets. Especially fashion secrets!
(I am also excited to see what you all have to say about this before the post goes up…thanks to our last round of comments, Nini and I found this awesome blog: http://artarra.com/ where you can pick up some excellent recipes for super healthy smoothies. Also, found on the blog: encouraging words. I was immediately drawn in. So send in your votes, your tips, your URLs, etc.)

As a sneak-peek into the TopTen, I begged Nini to post some photos taken by the blog that holds this week’s top ten. Ladies and Gents. Hold. On. To. Your. Seats. This super-talent posts only during the fashion weeks (NYC, Paris, Milan) but the wait is ALWAYS worth it. We can’t tell you the blog name yet but enjoy the photos.
Thanks for reading! xoNat.
