“Well-behaved women rarely make history”
One of my favorite quotes from a little known woman who is often mistaken for Marilyn Monroe, another favorite of mine. Both women stick out to me personally because they exhuberate rebellion and everything tabboo.
I’ve been a fan of fearless individuality since I can remember. As a child, I felt so stifled by so many rules, so many schedules, so little freedom. The older I grew, the more weery of it all I became. Read more about this here.
I’ve always admired Marilyn, and others like her, not because of her outward beauty or fame; but because underneath the fame, the make-up and hair, the glamorous outward aura that the unsuspecting public soaked up, Marilyn was simply Norma. She always felt different, not quite the same. Not only did she feel different, but she dared to be different. To stray from the cookie-cutter mold of the housewife and 2.5 kids many of her female counterparts flocked to.
Being an individual in a world full of conventional isn’t always easy, but necessary and worth every minute! I dare to say that, for those who truly beat to a different drum, doing so is almost involuntary. Personally, living a life pre-made for millions of others, simply world not work. I always knew this, I felt it; however, i wasn’t always sure what took do about it. I explain more about my journey from a drop-out addict to the president of the National Honor Society/Dental School Candidant, to high-class escort, to multiple entrepenuer here.
We all have our own path to follow, and routes that lead us there. For this reason, we at Boho Bouchic refuse to follow the herd and be the same cookie-cutter boutique you can find on every corner of the web. We refuse to sell the same old dime a dozen retail products that we know you could probably find yourself just as easily. Instead, we created a Bouchic, a brand focused on individualism, self expression, spiritual well-being, and inner happiness. We achieve those goals first by selling only unique, hand-crafted, made to order items and products. That’s right, from our clothing, to our shoes, to our skin care, everything is hand-made just for you. Because who wants to fit in anyway?
But our Bouchic wouldn’t be compete without our other half, our goal to inspire each member to dream bigger, differently, and actively work each day on the ultimate goal of achieving true inner happiness. Not based on what everyone, or anyone, elses idea of happiness or success.
Your idea of true fulfillment.
We all have the capability to achieve this level of spiritual peacefulness and content within ourselves, but we often give up on ourselves and lose faith somewhere along the way. We end up following the herd, living a life that we didn’t purposefully choose, on auto-pilot. To me, no greater travesty exists than a life wasted by not taking back control and living according your own rules, your own wants, dreams, and desires. Life is so so short.
If your one of those stuck (we all get sucked back into the herd at times!), I urge you to stay with us a while. I will be adding new material absolutely every week, more often then not, daily. Let’s stick together and learn from each other. Take from me only what resonates. I can promise, you will leave our Bouchic feeling lighter then when you came. Live what you love!
