Remember last week I said how I avoid long skirts because I don't find them flattering where they hit on the leg. Yeah that's how I feel in my new skirt if I am not wearing boots apparently. I haven't worn my Dankso Mary-Janes with a skirt or dress in two years because of a one off not too nice commenter. (they did a drive by. Made two horrific comments and disappeared) Pair skirt length that makes me uneasy with "unflattering" shoes and dude I am unhappy camper today. I love this skirt but WITH BOOTS. Too hot for that today. I should of waited.
That is my natural texture of hair. Some days it's actual curls, some days it is just a wavy mess. It was still damp this morning so I just left it. Something I NEVER do. I always alter it somehow. (I did flat iron my bangs) I never let it air dry and leave it either. I did it once a couple weekends ago and didn't like it so I put it up half way through day. Know what that tells me. TIME FOR A CUT. Nothing drastic, I'm not ready for that yet.
Yesterday's outfit. Not intentionally but I have worn a version of black, white and red everyday this week. Must be reading all 4 Twilight books in a week. The cover images are seeping into my brain.
You never get to see my makeup "fresh" so I took a picture in my bedroom as soon as I finished yesterday. I look a little wild eyed in the flash but it is dark in the house that early in the morning.
So I started doing my own "Shellac" manicures. This is Gelish though.
I am not going to review it. I'll be honest and say it isn't for everyone I hate sitting in a salon and paying someone else to do it so I decided to try it myself. In the past I have reviewed things I think are easy and even my arthritic 82 year old gram can do and I get a lot of comments from people who buy it and it "didn't work for them" and I feel bad (and sometimes they are kinda insistent about it). I don't know why it doesn't work for you. I feel bad you bought it cause of me. So yeah. That said, last night my 82 year old gram called to tell me she went and bought the lamp and the UV topcoat and her nails looked wonderful. So there you have it. ARTHRITIC GRAM DOES OWN UV COAT. Everything you need to know about what I did is here. It is easy, but it is also fussy and takes time. I wish you could see the holographic purple shimmer on top. It is really neat and doesn't show in photos at all.
How is your week shaping up?
I am ready for the weekend. We need to finish unpacking the spare bedroom we have dumped stuff in because we will have guests next weekend and then my entire family and Dave's (except for my mom) is coming the following weekend for my BIRTHDAY PARTY! I've never had one at my house so I am excited. By entire family I think there is 8 of us but still that is more than I have ever had in my apartment, well except for that one time in college but we don't talk about that night. (It involved cops banging on my door looking for my awful roommates friend. NOT COOL)
