Silly Purchase of the Year
To the right is my silly purchase for the year. It's eye shadow. It's silver. It's sparkly. Now, I wear make-up, maybe, 5 times a year, maybe. Moisturizer, yes, daily. Sunscreen, yes, when I'm going to be outside. Make-up with the foundation, mascara, blush, lipstick and eye shadow, maybe gets put on my face 5 times a year. I don't go anywhere and the guys at the office don't care. Why spend 15 minutes in the morning with the face paint if I'm going to spend the day driving around servicing equipment? I feel good enough about myself that I don't need added color or the added time to do this in the morning. I am who I am.
A friend of mine sells Avon products. I like to help out my friends when I can. Avon has some nice things. I take a look at her web site (yes it's a plug but Laurie's my friend) a couple times a month to see if there is something that meets the need I have at the time. Poking around before Valentine's Day I found the eye shadow. Silver big deal. What's so special about this? The name.
So that's my silly purchase of the year. The eye shadow is part of a whole product line Avon has and, technically, I should purchase a compact that holds blush and dry foundation and eye shadow. Laurie was kind enough to get me just the shadow. Will I use it? Possibly. I don't rule anything like that out. You never know. I did get a couple of flavored lip glosses, too, vanilla and chocolate.
I think this probably puts me in the real nerd territory when I'm buying based on a fictitious character in a made up world. But don't look at me like that. I know you've done something just a crazy.
