So I've been out of work for almost four months now, and as such, have been living in tees and juicies for the most part. Mind you, when I go out somewhere (such as the grocery store or even "The Walmart"), I of course dress appropriately, say, in a tee and cargo pants. But, with the possibility of employment looming (I'm optimistic, okay??), I find myself needing to get my summer work wardrobe organized. Normally this is a somewhat enjoyable (read: time-limited) task for me, but now, there's a problem. You see, there was a day back in early March where I decided I was going to DE-CLUTTER and dedicated an entire day to same. I became a whirling dervish of organization and cleaned out all of the upstairs closets. BAGS of clothes, shoes, purses and whathaveyou were given to charity, leaving my closets neat and half-empty and yours truly soooo freakin' happy :)
Fast forward to today. Summer work wardrobe needs to be assessed and organized. But holy hell, where are all my summer work clothes?? I mean, I found some, but definitely not ALL of them. Did I throw them out or give them away? Did I put them somewhere else? Did I take some to the dry cleaner and forget about them? All questions that can only be answered with the phrase that has become one of the Top Ten phrases I utter every day... "I don't remember".....<sigh>. Memories, hiding in the corners of my mind....I don't know how to retrieve them! Does anyone????
One thing that's making me very happy these days is the weather around these parts :) Aaah...cool, cloudy, and rainy. Always my favourite weather system, and especially so at this time of year, when it could so easily be hot, sunny and blech-y. And it will be that, any day now, so I'm thanking the Universe for this respite from the brutality that is summer, while I'm bracing myself for the inevitable. <sigh> 95 days until September 1 and you'd better believe I'm counting....
OH, and I will also take this opportunity to post about the perfect peachy-coral lip gloss, which I found this week at the MAC counter :) The new, "Surf Baby" collection hit counters on Thursday, so naturally I was there first thing in the a.m. to check it out. I exercised great restraint and only purchased two products, as follows:
My Paradise Cheek Powder - probably the star of the collection, certainly one which has been buzzed about on the blogs the most. I have to give MAC props as this is a really beautiful and somewhat unique colour - a deep, intense peach with a generous overlay of gold sparkle. Kudos, MAC :) BUT. The price is out of line, dudes. $32.00 for a mere 12g of product?? Come on, now. You're not Chanel, okay? Remember who your customers are and get some sense. I mean, yes, I bought it in spite of the ridiculous price, but I DON'T have any sense.
Strange Potion Lipglass - the aforementioned perfect peachy-coral lip gloss. And it really is perfect :) The perfect shade, the perfect level of shimmer (are the shimmers gold or silver?...they're so subtle I can't even tell...) and perfect pigmentation. This gloss appears on my lips exactly as it appears in the tube, which was enough to make me exclaim (loudly), "Ooooh, awesome!!!" the moment I tried it on in the store. LOVE :)
And now I must go and prepare a, "Summer Work Clothes I Need to Purchase" list :) Thanks to any/all who read my ramblings. Your comments are always welcome.
