A Different Point of View -- Featuring blackLiquid from the Cosmetics Fair

In sports, they say it a lot. A team that may be considered less experienced, unranked, and not great at whatever they should be doing may play like a much better team when they are facing the greats. There's no rationale to it, except our innate sense of competition.

Maybe we're all like that in whatever specialty we do, or whatever type of fun we have. A human desire to stand tall, and fight a good fight to the very end, no matter what it takes, lives on it each of us. I'm not an athletic sort now. I used to play soccer like a wild woman, but those were other years.

When I filled out an application to blog for blackLiquid, one of the comments on the application referenced 'Creativity' as a necessity for the bloggers in that group. I sensed that Ms. B wanted to push people who worked for and with her beyond the norm, always pulling the very best.

I really wasn't sure my blogging, my styling, and my overall aesthetic was good enough to meet the parameters laid out in the application. I shared that I would do my best. After all, that's all any of us can ever do.

So I have reviewed a few items now from blackLiquid. I looked for a different point of view, beyond the normal, outside the box, to show style but also creativity. I'm not there yet, but I know what direction I'm heading. I'm enjoying the journey so very much.
