As we set out to write our description, memories of Anthony Michael Hall at the end of the movie, The Breakfast Club come to mind. If you’re not familiar with the plot, I’ll set the scene.
It’s Saturday detention in a suburb of Chicago and five very different students are in the library making amends for their wrongdoings from the previous week at school. The principal decides to take the bull by the horns and orders each one of the students to write an essay telling him who they think they are. Cleverly, they all convince Brian, Anthony Michael Hall‘s character, to write the essay for all of them. Cue the Simple Minds song, Don’t You (Forget About Me) and read what he came up with:
“You see us as you want to see us, in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain….and an athlete…and a basket case…a princess…and a criminal.”
Yeah. That. People see what they want to see or what other people decide to show about themselves, which leads to social media posts showcasing an endless display of their fabulous lives. More princess, less criminal, for sure! We wanted to create a place where you all can see some reality behind the perfection, the shit behind the show, the Far From Fab.
Here, we’re going to tell it like it is, so you know you’re not alone. Tried to make that cute kitty cat cake and it turned into a melting gremlin? Been there. Tried to make a cutsie craft and almost burned your house down? Done that! Feel like a lot of your time is spent moving one step forward and 200 steps back? We. Are. Your. People. We hope you feel at home with us at Far From Fab, where you can relate to us, laugh with (or at) us and maybe learn some things along the way.
It’s time for all of us to embrace our inner hot mess and celebrate the journey not into perfection. Wear your lack of fabulousness like a badge of honor. You’ve earned it!
Welcome…we’re glad you’re here.
Love in chaos,
