I would like to first wish my grandmother, BG, a wonderful birthday! The relationship that I have with that woman is like no other. I could talk to her about anything. I strongly believe it's because of her that I have some of the "ways" that I have about me. I love that woman so much!!
Happy Monday! Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!! My weekend was ... ok. Nothing spectacular at all. I stayed in the house and did a lot of thinking. Yesterday I ventured out to go to the grocery store. Whooptido! Ughhh, I just realized I forgot to put on my earrings today. Don't you hate that?!
Moving on... what's in my makeup bag?! I have my jewelry in my makeup bag. I have all my necklaces, bracelets, a few rings, and earrings in there. I also have a sterling silver jewelry box in there that I hold all my "expensive" or tiny things... There's also a few other things in there that have no reason being in there. A cd, dice, and this hat thingy that I used to wear last winter. LMBO!
Soooo where's the makeup?? I used to have makeup, nothing too much, lip gloss, eye shadow, blush, a few brushes. But out of no where I decided to give it to my mother. I didn't wear it that often that I thought I needed it. I believe I have a natural beauty! Owww! LOL! Back in the day, when I was in high school, I never wore it... except those few times for prom or homecoming. And when I did put it on, my father and uncle used to always make a fuss about it... "You don't need that stuff..." "You look like a clown with that stuff on your face..." "You look better without that crap..." Fast forward a few years later, back in my clubbing days, I did a little experimenting with that stuff. I thought it was the "icing on the cake" to wear it... Now that I think abou it, that's probably why I decided to give it up... I wasn't going clubbing like that anymore, and didn't feel the need to have it. Now I'm satisfied with only lipgloss! ;-) I use this stuff from bath & body works... my fave!! I love when it's on sale like this... fifteen bucks for 3!!! Those could last me up to 6 months! And when I don't have time to go to the store to get some, I take it back and use some good ole vaseline - strawberry or cherry flavored. I don't have nothing against it at all... I love to see ladies with their makeup on, just as long as they don't look fake! LOL! I think it's so pretty! Who knows... I may even go out and get a few items. If and when I do... I'll be sure to look up some "how to's"... because I surely don't know how to!
This pic is probably the last time I wore some makeup, for my besties wedding last May. Shout out to ATM! ;-)
