Back from my self imposed vacation...
I went to barnes and nobles, then to the mall.
I didn't used to go to the mall because it involved a lot of walking...alot of skinny girls looking at clothes I couldn't fit in....
For me it was lane bryant or cj. banks.
Last night I went into a store called 'vanity'.
I actually had to talk myself into going into the store, there was a lot of chain link and strange lighting involved. lol.
They had halter dresses with sequins all over them.
They had shoulderless shirts with arms still attached...like holes over the shoulders
(point being in case you need to air out your shoulders????)
I could actually fit into some...
If I had wanted to...
Which I don't.
I think fashion wise I am somewhere between vanity and cj. banks.
I think I am more of a liz claiborne/ victoria secret beachware type person.
I just kind of wandered around looking at stuff..
I must have wandered for two hours or so.
I did see a great pair of shoes that I didn't buy because 79 dollars for a pair of shoes just wouldn't go over well in my house.
However, If I ever have some money lying around I would totally buy...
These shoes...Ed hardy with a metal heel...how cool is that.
It's my personality, in a shoe.
I'm even a pisces.
Then I spent some time in Dillards at the mac counter.
Ever since I started trying to figure out how to 'do' my makeup...I have been watching youtube videos.
In every video...or therebouts. The person always pulls a mac item out of their bag and says "This is awesome....I always use it."
Whatever IT is...
eye makeup...such as shadow, or eyeliner or mascara...
Each one will tell you ....
you can get everything else at the store but you must get ________ from Mac.
(And it's whatever part of their face they really like to emphasize)
So, I went to the source.
I told the lady that I need a foundation and I have no idea what kind.
The little korean ladies told me I needed Ivory.
The crazy chic who wanted to make me look exotic last year at the lancombe counter got me medium beige.
So the lady actually tries three different shades On My face...*gasp.
One blended into my skin perfectly...
She put it on and blended it in...it didn't look caked on...it was very light.
It made me look poreless...
Any gal over 30 knows what a blessing that is.
I love this foundation.
I'll go back next month for the blush.
It will take me a while, but I'll get there.
I love love love their makeup.
I found a romance novel that didn't involve bats or werewolves...
no bestiality was a blessing...
So, that made me happy.
I had a nice night out.
Now onto tonight.
I did an hour on the elliptical..plus 7 minutes on another machine waiting for my machine for a total burn of 780 calories.
I did 200 situps.
I did 36 'fly' thingies on a weight machine
36 lower back exercises and 36 lat pulls.
I had a really good workout and my calories are in under 1500.
I hope you all had a really good day.
Hugs to you,
