Personal Manifestos

June 10, 2011

Personal manifestos have been popping up everywhere lately and I must say I’m a fan. Enjoy these examples and perhaps even be inspired to pen your own.  If you’ve discovered any others you’d like to share, send them along.  Happy Weekend!

 From the The Neo-traditionalist:

We believe…

We believe in being glass-half-full sorts of girls.

We believe that often times, granny is chic.

We believe in peddling vintage Schwinns with flower baskets.

We believe in poetry, picnics, and piñatas.

We believe one is never too old to keep a diary, the secrets only grow more scandalous.

We believe in arranging fresh flowers unruly like an English garden.

We believe in adventure and traveling the globe, be it to Marrakech or Malibu.

We believe in mixing lucite with oriental rugs. Thrift store finds with heirlooms.

We believe in handwritten thank you notes, better late than never.

We believe in needlepoint, letterpress, decoupage and forgiving Martha Stewart.

We believe in piggy banks and cookie jars.

We believe in book clubs full of Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Austen and Woolf.

We believe station wagons are hopelessly chic.

We believe in recycling our Grandmothers’ names. Eloise, Jackie, Faye…

We believe in collecting: stamps, shells, books, big glittering diamonds…

We believe in marrying the boy that writes us the best love letters.

We believe in highly competitive board games—Chess, Scrabble, Chutes & Ladders.

We believe in spontaneous road trips and charming, chintzy bed & breakfasts.

We believe there’s something to fortune cookies, wishbones and 4 leaf clovers.

We believe in classics, shaken and stirred.

      All the manifestos are sure to empower all your female receivers. I think we need to be reminded of the thoughts in these manifestos every so often. So pleased to receive this posting Susan.

    Thanks for sharing these. I, too, am inspired by the positive messages in this branding. They know their demographic, right?

    The manifestos actually remind me of the posters for the 1990’s film, Trainspotting:

    I have a hunch that this was the muse. And if that’s true…I wonder who or what was the muse for the producers of THAT film…
