So, back in December I ordered a bunch of makeup from my Mary Kay consultant.....who happens to be my grandmother :) and she must have had the same sentiment as my husband because I feel like she sent that box of face paint to me overnight (I must REALLY be a hot ass mess!). When I opened that box a beam of light shot out of it and I heard angels sing! It was like a miracle waiting to happen! In any case, I've been working on an easy makeup regiment and have been sticking to it for the most part. Yay!
However, I still think I could use more fixin' in the style department. I have gotten used to being in very comfy clothes that I'm paying less than $20 for. My closet contains pieces that must have a dual purpose in case I get puked on, spill coffee (or wine) on myself or Thing 2 needs to wipe his boogers......it happens.....a lot. So, I just stopped buying really cute stuff and wear the basics, slacks, shirt, cardigan....sweats....boring shoes (ugh, the shoes). I would show you recent hot mess pictures of myself to prove how bad its been, but in the back of my mind, I know I look a hot mess and only take pictures of me when I'm 'dressed up.'
Case in point.......
this fantastic post over at Fox In Flats a few days ago. So, I've decided to play along and participate in the Fabuary style dare. Every day in February, there is a different item I'll wear and take a picture that will go up on my Instagram (which I invite you to follow, then, you can get a little sneak peek into my everyday life and view the silly musings of Things 1 & 2). You can also find a button over there somewhere --------> with a link to the challenge. I will also post a collage of my daily challenges every Friday so you're not bombarded with my vanity :)
Maybe you're a mom or not and think it's time to up your style game a bit or just want to do something fun. Feel free to join in, I am certain Miss Andrea would love to have you join in the fun....I sure am!
(Today's style item was shades. I found mine on clearance at Payless during BOGO. They're turquoise & black leopard print - Jackie O style!)
