There are numerous things indicating that I will be an ineffective caretaker of a human being. One of these is that I can be overly-neurotic when it comes to medical conditions. For instance, we had our two kitties spayed several days ago. Two days into taking care of them, I myself got sick. I worry myself silly about these things.
So the boyfriend and I will stick to non-human charges. Plants not included because I have what you might call the opposite of a green thumb.
Incidentally, I’ve been managing by trying random beauty tricks found on Pinterest. I’ve done the French manicure in black+gold tips. I’ve experimented more with smoky eye shadow. I’ve curled my hair without the use of heating tools. Like so:
It’s a wonderful technique. Without these fun curls, my head looks like it’s been attacked by a lifeless mess of frizz. In fact, this style is now my go-to going-out ‘do.
I have also been managing with the help of new shoes. These nude ballet flats are from Chilli Margarita. They are soft and perfect for walking. I have these in black and have used them to trek around downtown for errands and such. They survived; my feet survived. Yes, these are my go-to going-out shoes these days.
Has Pinterest helped you discover/do new things? Because you would think that I’d tackle some of the stuff on my MAKE board first, right? Turns out that the call of vanity is much stronger than that of creativity. Ha!
