Oh thank GOD, Marianne. Here is the number of my stylist, make an appointment today as her schedule fills up fast. And when do you want to go shopping? We should probably head downtown and start at Nordstrom's. Have you made an appointment to get your nails done yet? Do you want me to drop your coat off at the dry-cleaners? I can lend you a purse, so don't worry about that.
I think it really ruined her day when I told her the hair issue had been handled with the upgrading of my normal $2.99 CVS hair dye to the fancy and super-expensive $11.99 variety:
|This is a nice product, it comes out in a foam. Nothing says "swanky" like foam.|
I was red carpet ready.
Sometimes I wish I had the energy to put more work into my appearance. And other times, I am just happy to traipse through life with that friendly, slightly unpolished "approachable" look.
No matter. Lillian over at It's a Dome Life gave me a really cool blogger award this weekend. Blog awards are typically a double-edged sword. They can be both flattering and incredibly time-consuming as they are usually accompanied by rules, links, and a bit of effort.
Seeing as I don't put any effort into separating my eyebrows on a monthly basis, you might understand my conundrum.
I also don't like to play favorites with the blogs I read. I read a lot of blogs and to highlight just a few makes me uncomfortable. Being the girl who was always picked last for dodge ball, I just don't have it in me to leave people out.
Yet Lillian's award is one I can accept happily. There are no rules, no linking, no questions asked. Just a spiffy little badge that I can accept 100% guilt-free.
Thank you, Lillian!!
Now I'd best get back to taking a Sharpie to my book-signing shoes. There are a few scraped and torn patches that need some touching up.
