A weekend in the city, spending time with the Diva in me.
Lipstick, where have you been all my life? This is coming from a girl who put concealer on her lips for years... Rewind to my Wedding day... Not only did I fall in love with G again, but I fell in love with lipstick too. At 25 years of age I bought and wore lipstick for the FIRST TIME EVER... My friend Katy who I swear is a makeup guru, taught me the ins and outs of products and encouraged me play up my lips with some long lasting tricks. We lined and filled them with a nude liner, used a nude lipstick and sealed it with gloss. My lips were full and kissable all day long and since then I can't get enough lip product.
Baby Lips by Maybelline is on the rise. It's very popular amongst my friends and other Bloggers and has great reviews, so go get your
I met a wonderful stylist who washed out the drab, dated blonde that my hair was fading into and brought it back to life with a fresh new style. She matched my roots to my ends so finally after years and years of artificial color I can say goodbye blonde and hello au naturale!
I did some shopping, over indulged in Starbucks seasonal lattes and got my nails done. Long nails; something I have always loved and appreciate now more than ever. For five long, Diva-less years as a full time RMT I had to cut my nails down to the skin. I couldn't very well massage people with claws, could I?
Sunday we returned home to the country. Red lips, pretty nails, new hair and no where to go. My hair went up in a knot, my hands in a bucket of hot water and pine-sol, the heels came off and the Uggs went on. Our streets aren't made for high heels, red lips get the wrong kind of attention and for every fancy outfit there has to be a special occasion. In our neck of the woods... literally... the Diva in me wouldn't last a day...
... I guess it's good to know she's there when I need her.
How do you pamper the Diva in you?
