Don't hate me because I'm beautiful. Who was it that said that? I can't remember. I would google it, but I'm too preoccupied with being totally lazy. Anyway, I have to ask myself, what did it take for her to be beautiful? Was she one of those girls with naturally shiny, perfect hair and skin that never ages? Or was she a Miss Congeniality behind the scenes with a team of people and chemicals? I find myself wondering because tomorrow the girls and I will have our pictures taken for dance and tonight we've had a night of beauty. My girls, they are natural beauties. Sarah has the most amazing silky, straight hair. It's what I've always wanted. Of course, she wants curls.We've tried everything. Hot rollers, curlers you sleep on, curling irons, you name it we've tried it. But I knew she would want curls again. So tonight I got creative and just twisted her wet hair in pincurls and bobby pinned them. We'll see what happens in the morning.
It just isn't spring if I haven't launched into full, make-over mode. Jergen's Natural Glow, 2 hour teeth whitening, and new make-up. Am I the only one who considers a new look one of the most exciting parts of Spring? Yes, I'm shallow, vain and superficial. I admit it. I'm also orange, have teeth a lighter shade of yellow and most days don't even bother to wear make-up. But the point is, I TRY. I try, y'all. Yesterday I was in the make-up aisle in Wal-Mart and noticed that an anti-aging foundation (yes, I've reached that point) wasn't completely wrapped in plastic and I could try it. I've always been told you should rub foundation into your wrist to see if it blends with your skin tone. So, I did. I don't know what happened. It started out as one little squirt and before I knew it, I was covered in make-up. I glanced around frantically for anything to wipe my hands on. Nothing. I started blending. The underside of my forearm has never looked so good. I seriously considered putting make-up on my arms everyday. Speaking of that, do you know what they make now?? CVS has this stuff by Joan Rivers and it is make-up for your legs! Y'know, to cover up varicose veins and stuff. I'm saving up my CVS bucks. I am so gonna get that stuff! BTW, a major life event happened in the midst of the craziness of my life the last few weeks. Y'all better be glad I've been so busy or I may have dedicated an entire week to it. What, you ask? My first gray hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And get this, I colored my hair, and that one hair is still there!!!!! Josh keeps telling me it's blonde. Yeah right. I am just thankful that this event occured in the middle of t-ball season and dance recital preparation. I just don't have time to obssess over it properly.
Well, my hubby's softball game got canceled tonight and he's searching for a movie for us to watch. So, after my night of beauty I'm about to retire to the couch for a date. Wearing not an ounce of make-up, oversized pj's, and split ends that have split ends. Maybe by the morning I'll have had enough beauty sleep to work miracles. It's amazing how I've gone from wanting to be naturally beautiful to just hoping to be artificially presentable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please tell me, what is your beauty secret you can't live without?
