You know what I did today on my lunch? Well, not lunch really, as I never take one (because I can’t eat through the day without setting off my stomach) but an hour in the afternoon anyway. I was frustrated here, being grilled over something I did ages ago…everyone wanting to pin all the issues on me (of course I’m the scapegoat right? I wish they’d wait until I was gone at least). Anyway, I had to get out of this place and it was pouring rain, hail and ice outside (yay winter) so I did something I never do: I got in my car, drove to the mall and went to Sephora. I’m not sure if any of you know the brand but it’s a make up company and their stores are like a little slice of heaven if you love make up like I do. (not heavy cakey make up either, but fun bright colours and dimension creating powers .. such fun to play with in my world.
Their make up is not cheap in quality or price so I almost never allow myself to go in there. There are thousands of lipsticks and nail polishes…every colour you could imagine. I could, honestly, spend the day in that store trying everything out. I found the new spring palate of eye shadows and fell in love. It was on for $30…eight shades, all ones I’ll use (which is rare! That never happens…there’s always a weird red or purple I don’t like but not this time!). I had to have it. I also found a lovely matte lipstick from Buxom that I decided I couldn’t live without so in the end, I spent about 50$. D would choke on his coffee if he knew…lol. Now, I *never* spend money on stuff like this. My hair cut two weeks back was a treat that I’d not given myself in years. Plus, I put in on my emergency credit card so I can pay it before he sees it. *giggles* I hope he doesn’t decide to read this post for some reason! ha!
So, I shopped the sadness away a little. I can’t wait to try my new colours….which reminds me. I still owe you guys a photo of my new hair! Shall upload a few shots soon…maybe tomorrow after I’ve tried my new eyeshadow. 😀
I’m taking tomorrow off just because I can. No one needs me here, no one will notice if I’m not here and I have vacation saved up so fuck it. I’m going to try to enjoy a long weekend. I’m even going to let Colt stay home and have a hooky day if he so chooses. He may refuse though, hot lunch is tomorrow and he loooooves hot lunch. 🙂
Smiling. Time to leave soon. Hooray! xx
(Since doubling my meds I’ve managed to keep the pain just under my tolerance level so I’m doing better than I was this morning. It’s so great when things work, even temporarily).
