Girly Girl?

lipstick121_mWhile normally I am somewhat of a tomboy; always wearing pants, never putting anything in my hair except the shampoo and conditioner, and stuff like that. However, there are times when I just want to be girly!

I wear mainly pants because some odd reason, I can’t simply find a skirt that suits my taste. Any color will do- except yellow. I don’t want to look like a canary past it’s prime. It must be extremely long… to my ankles?? It must flow in the wind. I think I have watched “Sarah Plain & Tall” too many times. You have to admit, though, those dresses could just work if given the right place and time. Oh, and if they were given a modern twist. I just had an “A ha!!” moment. So why don’t I put anything extra in my hair? It’s so dry and brittle. I’m in the process of finding hair products that will help. I’d like to give my hair some life. It needs reviving. Oh hair Gods, I bet of you to help! Okay… I’ve lost it.

I would love to put on makeup. There are just 2 problems, First, I have no clue what kind of makeup to buy that would look good on me. I have such even skin tones that I’d get too confused doing it on my own. I’m good with just lip gloss, lipstick, and mascara. At the same time, I would like to bring some color to this pale face of mine. At times it does (or I do) look like a zombie. Darn this translucent skin of mine!

So while I like to keep my legs covered and my face natural, it would be nice to step out in a skirt and a made-up face every now and then. HELP! Calling all make-up experts and fashionistas!!



I’m On The Prowl

Being single really sucks at time. It does. You see all of these couple holding hands and kissing- which makes you yearn for that even more. So now that I’ve been kind of going on my own without a man for the past year and 2 months (Sadly, I’ve counted), I’m on the prowl once again! Although my college studying may interfere with that just a bit, I am not worried. The only thing I worry about (being single) is whether or not to put my hair up. I have decided that I am not going to change my personality just to meet someone. They will have to love me for who I am. I may seem like a tomboy at first because I don’t wear a lot of dresses, makeup, or skirts, but darnit, I love being cuddled!

Not to mention, I love being able to flirt with the guy and grab his attention. I do have to ask you, how did you meet your significant other and how did you draw their attention to you? Or if at all? I’m just really curious and might want to get some pointers. It’s been a while since I’ve done it and frankly, I am scared to death. Rejection hurts. So, single men, here I come!
