Well, I am back from Super Goal Sunday at Hofstra. Workshops on hair and wardrobe. A fun relaxing informative day. And yes, I goofed on the sweet treats. They contract with the nicest bakery but I didn't overdo it and had honeydew melon and strawberries too. Not too tizzed about that as I'll explain later.
So what did I learn
- Makeup - use primer first. Recommended Sephora HD. use it even before moisturizer. For women our age tinted moisturizer instead of foundation. You can make your own, mix on hand 50/50 moisturizer/foundation. There is a great bag of make up brushes on ebay for 20.00 Use flat rounded brush to apply primary base color on eye. Colors can be layered everything is blended. Eyes first, face last. MAC bronzer recommended for glow. Moisturize your neck and chest. Carry color all the way down lightly If you dye your hair it is worth it to have a glazing treatment. Do not shampoo your hair everyday. You can get something called powderdose, it's a 7 minute treatment, lasts 4 - 6 weeks, by L'oreal. Purchase at a salon. Moroccan Oil mask is good for your hair, Shaper Plus hair spray. MAC nude lip liner applied all over lips prior to color. maybelline the falsies voluminous express for mascara, johnson and johnson baby detangler is good for your hair. Microdembrasion for the fine lines around your lips (you know I will be checking that one out!)
Midway was a tea with motivational speaker. How about this? "obsessing doesn't change anything" Write down your burdens and then throw them out. I liked this concept. I already write down at least 5 things everyday I am grateful. She suggested carrying it in your purse!
As to the clothing, moi is pleased to report that the leader liked my pink jacket and grey pants, I picked the right color and she pointed out to the group how wonderfully I had accessorized with pink crystal butterfly pin. So I was pleased as PUNCH! Know that you have two different style personalities. She also gave everyone four cards and they are for your wardrobe on a d ring so you can put on hanger, write down outfit that works all the way including accessories, hose, shoes and bag. These become your go to outfits and you don't have to think.
Now to the bad bit (I guess it is but I am in denial) didn't have a picture to post yesterday because DH was drunk and the only pix I did get were in the police station. Like I told the guys that was not the picture I had in mind. Seriously looks like a scratched mosquito bite. Had a very peaceful night after that though it did cut into my weekend plans. Also on the upside, the used car lot guy came over this morning as his guys had seen it (DH resisted so things got very ugly out here for awhile) and wanted to make sure that I was OK and safe. Gave me his cell number and his guys, told me they will help me anytime. It's nice to know even though I'd prefer not to. Do ya think they take out garbage?
I am Ok and had a lovely day. One SS is very upset, not with me and will not deal with it anymore. The eldest says he's not going anyplace, he will be in my life and is coming over for dinner tomorrow. And our feral cat, Mr. Stubbs, survived the destruction of the woods and is in the backyard. The world is a good place.
