On my journey to earning the title I already hold of Lady I have taken it upon myself to become a bit more... polished. I've always been a bit of a tomboy and spent most of my time hanging out with the neighbors who were boys rather than learning how to curl my eyelashes and blowout my hair.
Lucky for me one of my friends is a fabulous makeup artist and has been super helpful with this aspect of my journey. On Sunday she hosted the makeup/brunch that I had mentioned in my last entry.
The purpose of this party was to "launch" the fact that she is now selling a makeup line for her clients to use as well as doing their makeup for special occasions like weddings and what not.
I will admit I was a bit hesitant at first because I've never had any luck at these things...Mary Kay, Avon... it was all "old lady" stuff and things I just didn't like but always felt like I had to buy b/c the woman was so nice.
The best part was getting to sample and try out the makeup while Linda did a demonstration on me for the rest of the ladies. She was great with answering all of our questions and didn't try to push the product on us at all. She just showed us what it did and let it speak for itself. I was thrilled.
I know most of my readers happen to be women so I'm going to share the
link to her online shop. Linda has no idea that I'm writing about this, and has not asked me to review her products or her services.
I am in no way being compensated for any of this. I just really liked the product and the price. Right now there is a special on her page that you get free shipping on orders over $25 if you use the code MARKFS25

Did I mention that I got to wear my "skinny jeans" on Sunday? They hadn't fit in almost 3 years. Go me!
Linda is also helping me learn how to dress more like a grown up by giving me her old clothes that I am in love with. With a friend like her to guide the way I'll be a lady in no time!
