Beauty Products

TIME OUT! Before I go any further, I have to tell everybody about the AMAZING blogging milestone I just reached!  I emailed one of my blog-crushes, Kim ,from Dear Daisy Cottage the other day to tell her how fabulous and cheerful I think her blog is and to ask for photography tips.  Not only did she email me back with kind words and encouragement, but she visited my blog, commented AND added me to her Blog Candy list!  I'm totally somebody now!  It's so fun and flattering to be included in a list with such clever and creative people!

The other day, I decided to go to the mall and visit my friend (and fellow blogger), who works at a Nordstrom make up counter.  We had a nice visit during her 15 minute break and then she offered to do my make up.  I hadn't showered, I was in a stained, hooded sweatshirt with greasy hair but who doesn't love the feeling of being beautiful and pampered? Right? 
When she was finished, she asked me what beauty products I needed samples of.  I told her I didn't really need anything.  "Ok," she replied. "What do you want?"  I still couldn't think of anything. She came thru with samples of a great moisturizer and lots of perfumes.
Sometimes I'm so focused on domestic-type woman skills that I miss fabulous opportunities for womanly lessons in other areas, like beauty products.  I am not a shopper.  I go to the mall in ratty clothes with a total in-and-out mentality.  It might be more womanly for me to take time and browse and investigate products.  Thanks, friend, for pointing out this new opportunity for womanly growth!

What do you think?  Any woman skills you'd like to see me tackle?  I'm newly open minded!


  1. So cute! I love the rag curls. Very retro womanly.

  2. You look so adorable! I think you should blog about finding a womanly outfit for your hair and makeup :)


Thanks for taking the time to respond! I LOVE comments!
