on being a girl

After our social worker left today (more on home study update later) I wanted a some girly time and so I headed to the nearest makeup store, Ulta. I needed some hair junk and some face powder, but that was really an excuse to buy sale cosmetics that were more fun. I also made an appointment to get my hair cut and highlighted on Halloween.

I happen to love the way that the Ulta name is stamped into the eyeshadow. I really, really loved it. I loved it so much that I came home and took pictures of it out in the sunlight. I loved my sparkly lip gloss and my cool new trendy bluegreen nail polish.

See, isn't this the prettiest purple eyeshadow for a smokey eye you've ever seen? Don't you just think the letters stamped into it are wonderful? I guess I'm just all about the aesthetics.

Lovely nail polish. Lovely.

This is when I like being a girl. Clothes may not always fit, but makeup is always friendly and fits.

So, now I am going to watch a movie and paint my nails and relax before Charlie and I babysit our nephew this evening.

Every girl needs a little shimmer in her life. Even me!
I've only been to Ulta once, to get a gift card for my mom, but my mom loves that store (hence the gift card). She has a huge assortment of all sorts of shimmery stuff.

Happy babysitting!

Almost makes me want to start being a little more girly. Almost. (-; Glad you got a nice pick-me-up out of it! The colors are great.

Agreed! I love makeup and I love anything that shimmers! Ulta is a great store.

I've never thought of make up fitting when nothing else does. I have a new found appreciation for it. Thank you.
