Pink is pretty on everyone. Really. A pink lip gloss or blush can totally freshen you up and look very...glowy. That sounds silly, but I do think it's true. My only advice about pink lip gloss: do NOT get a light frosty pink thinking that because it is light, it will look more natural. If you want natural, you need to get something a bit darker than your own lips. Lighter than your lips will look odd and unnatural unless you do some serious lipliner blending.
Pretty pink things:
Surprisingly, I want these shoes:
Love color-coordinated books!
Dig the wall color...maybe one wall in my house...someday?
Poor pink doggy.
Cuz I dig it.
If anyone can help me figure out how to enlarge images off the internet, let me know! This post looks crappy!
This photo kind of sums up what my birthday party was all about. I was happy with my hair/make-up/dress/shoes, tons of friends came, and there were poles. So really, what else could a birthday girl ask for? It was so, so fun.
I ran around in those killer heels for five hours. I never sat down, not once. And now I seem to have weird tingly numb feelings in my toes that won't go away. Did I cause permanent nerve damage with my beeyooteeful shoes? Was it maybe worth it if I did? Hmmm.
One ongoing theme for me the last several weeks has been the "How old do I look?" game that I have played with many, many people. Mostly strangers who found out from a friend or my I.D. that it was my birthday and made guesses at my age. Seriously, the highest guess was 32...the lowest was 21. This, of course, made me very happy. These people also usually asked "How do you look so young?" and I don't know the answer, exactly, to that.
I'm not saying all this to sound braggy or snooty...but I am curious about aging and skin and wrinkles and how much life happiness and contentment affects how we all look. My parents stayed young looking until just the last few years--and they are 81 and 77 now, so they really should start looking their ages! And I always thought they were two very happy people, and that their state of minds and hearts affected their looks very much.
What do you think? What are the things that keep us looking young? I have some ideas...and I'll share them in the next few posts.
P.S. See my dollar bills tucked into my belt up there? I made $14...thank you very much!
