Odd notes

Hey! :) It's nice to see you once in a while.

I've been gone a lot too lately. I'm up for a job actually. Whether or not I in fact get the job, it already marks the end of my stint as a SAHM. How that is relevant to beauty, um, well it isn't. I've just been off the sites recently.

It's funny but the common wisdom that it is the teenage years that are difficult in child-raising...is bollocks. I think it's because those first six-plus years are handled by women, and they are invisible. The hard part is the pregnancy. It then gets gradually easier and easier, from that point forward.

Beauty-wise...well I wore MAC Sophisto to the interview. lol...it's not bad actually. It's an entirely neutral lipstick. Even though I prefer VGV I can admit that it's not the best thing to wear for a job interview. It's too pretty and frivolous, like a day at the beach.

I didn't want to look "pretty" for this interview so I didn't wear eyeshadow. Just, ah, MAC Permaplum. The blue tone makes the whites of your eyes look better (I am not advocating wearing little makeup to job interviews, it really depends on the job).

Then it was MAC Blushbaby in case the blood drained from my face. :D

Oh well that's what up over here. I'm still with Givenchy Organza. I've discovered that it has a definite shelf life though. The bottle I have is slowly not smelling quite the same. The first bottle actually went bad toward the end (I was hoarding it). This one I didn't exactly hoard, but now I can see that buying those super-sized discounter bottles for Organza is a good idea only if it's the only perfume that you wear.

Which, it might well become. Is a return to the workforce, for me anyway, the end of maximalism? Is it like the pregnancy where all the overhead is up front, then it tapers and tapers and tapers?
