Jackie and I went to Sephora today to pick up makeup and tips for this weekend. We were lucky enough to find a makeup artist who actually understood what I wanted (“natural” meant natural, not “2 inches of caked-on so-called ‘natural’ makeup”), who set me up with some very nice products and gave me wonderful advice for using them, and we had a great time.
But I have now, in one afternoon, spent enough money on makeup to feed a starving child three meals a day for two months*, so please don’t let me do any more shopping for a long time.
I doubt I will stick to this, but it would be good to remind me. In my defense it has been years since I bought any really useful makeup, and I recently went through my huge collection and realized nearly all of it was from early college or even high school, so I threw it out. So it was high time for a restocking.

i love kitties! and reading over on your post about your shindig. You said all you ever talk about is the nonwedding. I’m not even the one getting married and it’s all i can talk about. my friend eileen was making fun of me. “all you do is complain complain. ‘oh my nose [due to allergies. nothing to do with the wedding]! oh i can’t find a dress! oh where am i going to find a dress? oh no i got the date of the wedding wrong…” we’re all going crazy. but it just means that i am very excited for you. :]

Hahahahaha. That made me laugh so hard. “Oh my nose!” I have allergies too, but for me it’s been “oh my eyes! oh my neck!” The neck rash seems to be getting better, thank goodness.
I guess these sorts of events are really like prom, aren’t they? As soon as prom comes up that’s all the girls can ever think about. I’ve thought many times since this whole nonwedding thing got started that really, prom is very good preparation for planning a wedding… scary though that thought is.
I can’t wait to see you soon! 😀 😀 😀 I just did a little fashion show for Mommy complete with shoes and jewelry, in both my dresses, and I’ll do another one for you once you get back. 🙂
