I remembered something that I wanted to share yesterday.
First of all, on Monday, I had to go into 'the city' for a mammogram and other stuff. Well, I haven't felt good about myself in a long time, and I haven't worn make up for a-g-e-s. So, to celebrate a mid-point, 13 pound weight loss, I decided to get all gussied up, put on some make up and wear some of those clothes I haven't been able to get into in y-e-a-r-s! WOOOOHOOOOO!
So, I dug around in my box of make up stuff. (I used to do color makeovers and pamper sessions as my business, and I have a lot of fun stuff.) I found my favorite colors, set up my mirror, brushes, applicators, cotton swabs, etc. etc. etc. and then turned to face the mirror.
Now I discover, I can't apply eye make up while wearing glasses. So, I have to take my glasses off. (I did say it's been a long time!) So, I put my glasses in a safe place where I could find them again.
Then I dabbed a bit of my favorite color onto the applicator and put it where I thought it should go. First one eye, then the other.
Then I try to look at myself in the mirror. Of course, I can no longer see my eye in the mirror without my glasses but it looks like I've got black stuff all over my face. So, I put on my glasses, and sure enough. Black stuff. What is that and where did it come from???
I looked down at the color pot to make sure I'd used the right color. Yep. Then I looked at the applicator only to discover that the foam tip had disintegrated! The decomposed foam tip is now on my eye lid and all over my face!
Oh, dear! It really HAS BEEN a long time!!!
So, in keeping with recreating a brand new Sparky way of thinking and living, I also get to re-Spark my cosmetics!
