Whole new me

I haven't posted in awhile because, while I need to get up my tri post,
I don't want Peevish to think I'm a jock, so I was waiting to post on a non-athletic topic first. Obviously, that's taken awhile. But y'all - I totally did a triathlon.

In an effort to create distance between me and my jockiness - jockularity? - I thought I'd tell you about another new interest of mine - cosmetics. Specifically, eye make-up, and more specifically, as in I am wearing it. I know, shocking.

I've never worn make-up, in all my soon-to-be forty years. I mean, lipstick maybe, or powder, and I did put on a face for my wedding. But in general...no.

I was happy with that choice, and I'm happy with my choice now.

I visited the Bobbi Brown counter at Nordstrom's a few weeks ago, and had a terrific sales rep who finessed the my desire to have more going on with my eyes yet not look like a clown / hooker.

I think, anyway. I mean, right?

Especially attractive when you smile!
I vote for a touch of lip gloss.

I agree with blackbird!

Jocks can wear make-up, too.

Clown hookers remind me of sixth street.

Look how long your hair is! Are you still eschewing shampoo, even with all the sweating?

Sinda said...

BB - thanks! I will say in my defence that I took these picture on my way to breakfast, so my lovely BB raspberry-blue lipstick had not yet been applied. It's a must for my thin lips, tho...

Lisa - the sweating definitely put the no poo routine in hiatus. I'm just not as regimented now - I may shampoo twice in one day, or once in three days, it just depends on what I've been up to. I'm missing it, though - I think nmy hair was healthier for it.

i still need that liquid eyeliner lesson.
