Would anyone agree sometimes being a woman requires high maintenance? It is rough sometimes. I started getting gray hair around my senior year in college and thus began the coloring/highlighting rituals!!! Once my older sister showed me how to do the box color, I did it myself for years. Then I started keeping my hair long and wanted highlights and I was damaging my hair badly, I started having my hair stylist do the coloring. I really think if I didn't color my hair at all, I would be totally gray!!! Seriously!! Melissa does a great job and I love going to her. It is crazy.....my hair color trips are a line item in our budget!!!! I'm not exaggerating. And it seems like my gray shows more and more frequently in between salon trips!!! Frustrating!!!! I have an appointment tonight but it seems like I was just there right before Granny's party. I don't know if she will have time or not but I'm thinking of having her add more blond or lighter highlights so the gray does not show as much. But she is squeezing me in so I may just stay the one color for one more month.
If hair color wasn't enough, Brooklyn and I went to the mall yesterday to pick out new lipstick color. PICKING OUT NEW LIP COLOR NEARLY STRESSES ME OUT!!!! We went with Clinique and I think I tried on 999 lipstick colors all with q tips and then wiping it off with a tissue. My tips were so sore and puffy. I looked like I had botox or something!! I exaggerate a little. It wasn't 999...more like 7-10 different colors. Brooklyn and I both settled on the same color...."Shy" I think I'm going to like it. It was nice to have her with me. She is completely honest on how a color looks. Thanks Brooklyn! And, it was fun!!! It was nice to squeeze in some time together.
On top of hair color and lipstick, there is fashion. After reading multiple blogs, I have concluded I'm not too exciting and I can't keep up with fashion trends. That's it.....I'm not very trendy. I tend to wear the same thing. Jeans and cotton tees from Gap, Old Navy, Wal-Mart, JCPenney's. I'm trying to branch out a little this year though.
MAN, IT'S TOUGH BEING A WOMEN!!!!
