My car has been yelling at me for WEEKS.
I love technology, but having a car nag at you for service every single time you get into it is stressful.
I’ve found myself talking back to my car, “I know you’re due for service. I’ll try to take you in NEXT week.”
Then, a week later (as the car began yelling at me MORE often!),
“I know, I know. Just give me another day!”
Finally, yesterday morning, I took my car in for service.
While it was being worked on I decided to kill time at a nearby Nordstrom store.
I ended up getting my makeup “done” for the first time in my entire lift.
Me with makeup on … For the first (and maybe last?) time.
I was looking at the cute little gift bags at the Trish McEvoy counter and the next thing I know I was getting my makeup done by their “artist.”
I actually liked the way my lips looked.
I told her I don’t normally wear makeup so she went with a lighter look vs. a super dramatic one.
I thought my lips looked pretty.
(Did I buy the lip stuff? No, I did not, but I might.)
I don’t usually wear anything but lip gloss because I have big lips.
I’ve had big lips since THIN LIPS were in, and so I’ve always felt self conscious about my big lips.
I certainly never have wanted to emphasize them with lipstick.
(Yes, I know big, fat, fake, gigantic, lips are “in” right now.)
I also tried the Trish McEvoy perfume.
She makes several flavors of perfume.
I tried the one with blackberry and vanilla and I thought it smelled very nice.
(Fred thought I smelled delicious when I got home!)
I brought home samples of a few of her perfumes to try.
I thought my eyes looked nice made up also, but I know myself well enough to know I just won’t wear eye makeup – except for mascara.
Maybe I’ll try it if I have a special night out or something?
If you ever want to have some fun, just watch the facial expression of a makeup artist when they ask me what facial moisturizer I’ve been using.
“Moisturizer? Oh, sometimes I slap some hand lotion on my face if I think I need it.”
“You do WHAT? What kind of lotion did you just say?” (Face AGHAST!!)
“Hand lotion. You know, the stuff you buy at the drugstore to use when your hands get dry? But, I use it everywhere if I need it.”
I guess there aren’t too many people like me in the world?
Switching subjects, my arm is still not great, by any means.
It’s improving a little now, so I think each day should get better.
I’m spending my morning with Paul Newman and I’m sure he will help a lot.
I’ll limit my activities as much as possible until I’m sure I’m over the worst.
Happy weekend to all of you!!
