Sitting here feeling especially girly tonight…..after work I got my hair lightened and cut……working towards this style at the moment….


…a little asymmetrical, a little more edgy, a little more blonde.  I’ve still got a bit more growing out to go, but I’m getting there.

The “girl with the great hair” is Sarah Harding, an English singer.

After I got a little “blonder” I went out and splurged on some new eye shadow and eye liners….I’m generally not a “make-up” kinda girl, but I have discovered these eye shadows from Covergirl that I just love, love, love. It gives your eyes a great look without having to put a lot of thought and effort into it!

Smokey Eyes ShadowBlast by CoverGirl. 

I started out with the one that has the silver and purple (Silver Sky)….love it, so tonight I went out and got the one with the green and brown (Citrus Flair) , the white and black (Onyx Smoke) , and the tan and brown (Bronze Fire)…..for me that’s a splurge for sure! I played around with those when I got home as well as the colored eye liners I picked up as well (Covergirl Liquiline Blast Eyeliner) in Violet Voltage, Green Glow, and Brown Blaze…..a far cry from my basic black that I’ve worn for years.

Of course, once I get in the make-up aisle I’m quite taken with all the products that are out there….it’s mesmerizing……I also ended up with these fun products and I played with them as well.  All this playing with make-up makes me feel like a teenage girl!

I got some liquid primer in green with a multi-colored brush… fun is this?!  The green is supposed to correct the redness in your complexion….I played with it and I think it works!

I chose the Mineral Glow Pearls and played with those as well….then I scrubbed my face and I’m sitting here writing my blog with a clay masque on my face….I feel it getting tighter and tighter, I just love that feeling!

Okay, my face is about to crack, so I’d best go!

Okay Cathy, Here is the pic just for you……took this with my iPhone on the way home to show to one of the girls that I work with.

  9. I want some SHADOWBLAST the purple and grey! Will have to see if my CVS carries this.

    LUUUUUUVVVVEEEEEEEE your new haircut. And the color is perfect for you. So darn cute!!!! All of a sudden your face just POPS!!!! (well, you are a beauty anyhow........) But it sure does look cute!!!!!

    Here's my tip for the day for you. Check out NARS "Orgasm" blush! It is the prettiest blush I have ever used. I bought some for me and ended up sharing it with Shelly (my youngest). So had to go to and order me some more. It is the perfect blush. No more pink blush and seperate coral blush. This is the perfect one stop shop! Trust me --- go to YouTube and put in NARS Orgasm. It is almost a cult fad! Love it.

    OK Pretty've made us all want to look a little prettier! You look tres chic!
