Day at Macy's and Cute Shoes

Let's begin first with a couple of pink rooms I thought you'd enjoy seeing.

I LOVE this pink bathroom!

This room reminds me of something Sister Parrish would have designed. I loved her decorating.

Yep, as you can see by the police officer, this is a detention center for teenagers. Pink is a calming color for hyperactive children and I love this pink room, but I doubt its occupants would love being here.

Be still my heart! Isn't this bedroom darling?!?!?! I'd love it for myself, not just a little princess.

You would have to be "seriously into pink" to live here and not many men would, but I truly think it's gorgeous.

I went to Macy's in Boise the other day to get some makeup. Actually, I wanted some concealer for my eyes that are getting pretty dang old, chicks! Now, I've recently discovered Bobbi Brown makeup and let me tell you their brand is something else—as in fantastic! I've never had a makeup where they could match your skin shade so well. My foundation shade is cool sand 2.5, but the concealer (pale yellow/cool sand - a 2 part applicaton) and corrector (light bisque—a pink) are altogether different. The makeup artists there are truly well-versed in how to apply makeup. But I'm digressing from the experience.

I simply wanted for them to look at my chart, which is on file, and grab the correct color and pay for it and walk out. Nuuuuuuuu, couldn't be that simple.

The makeup girl was just starting on another woman as I walked up. I said I just wanted to purchase the concealer. It ended up being about 25 minute deal, taking her away from the other woman. I said when I walked up that I was in no hurry and could wait but she spent almost a half hour putting more stuff on me! I apologized to the lady, who was gracious, and tried to get out of there quickly but the makeup artist was having none of that! I was very embarrassed that she took me before that lady.

I ended up with her applying eyebrow color, cheek color, fixing my eyes herself, more foundation to cover what she was doing, mascara, lip color, lip GLOSS, eyeliner and eyeshadow—MOST of which I ever wear! Now, you KNOW I am very brave, or a shameless hussy, if I put a photo on here of what I looked like when she finished and I got home. Okay, it's a very upclose photo and I really don't look quite that red/bright naturally but the flash can only do so much that close up. Needless to say, I put on my sunglasses and went home to immediately wash my face. I'm just not used to a lot of makeup at all and certainly not the "extra" stuff she put on me. I use foundation, concealer, lipstick and mascara when I go out.

Here is all the Bobbi Brown makeup I have as of now. There moisturizer is wonderful also! The little pink container on the upper left is a "face illuminator" my granddaughter sent me yesterday from Seattle and is NOT Bobbi Brown but Wet n Wild MegaGlo. It's very nice also to give a shine to the eye area and conceal the dark areas of the eye. She tries to help me too. She is great at applying or helping me choose makeup. But then she's 40 years younger than me!

Let me just say here that this stuff ain't cheap but it is truly worth it. What you see here is about $240.00 worth of makeup. This includes the eye brush, foundation, moisturizer, concealer and corrector.......oh, and the powder puff. ;-) The Wet n Wild was a gift. Hah!


I found these at WM a couple of days ago and needed a pair of "house shoes" to tromp around in the house since podiatrist said I needed to wear shoes more. Yeah, I'm a barefoot kinda chick, but these old feet need more support so what are ya gonna do, huh??? But when I saw these for $9.00 I knew even Love Bunny would have thought that was a great deal.

And, yeah, that's me with these big feet resting on my desk and yeah, that's a bag of Lay's Maui Onion extra krispy potato chips on the desk. *Sigh*.............


Random Thought:

You younger women will identify with the first part of this but it takes us older women to truly understand.

When we're young women and mothers we are "careful" when we wear white pants, but did you know that us over 60 women have to be just as "careful" when WE wear white also? Hmmmm??? Same area, different location, chicks!!! *Sigh*................... Notice I'm wearing white today in these photos.
