Thanks for the suggestions of strength training videos yesterday! I will be paroozing my options the next couple of days!
Call this a strange post if you will but I am going with it. When it comes to makeup, how often do you wear it? I have been called out for putting on makeup, by my boyfriend when it’s just us two lounging. We spend countless weekend nights watching movies and sipping wine. He does not understand why I sometimes put makeup on after my shower and he does not understand when I precisely decide what cute PJs to put on.
My point? When my 100% Italian Grandmother was alive, you could never catch her with out her jewelry, makeup and hair did. I as a child used to ask, “but why do you put on makeup when it’s just us going down the shore?” She would respond, “Well, it makes me feel good”. That was that. I never really questioned it more. Wanna see a picture of my Mom-Mom Marie at age 43?
She took much pride in the way she looked. I swear she was never caught looking bad. She eventually was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 60 and even through her long exhausting battle for two years, she didn’t take her wig off until she went to bed. 🙂 My Mom-Mom was one strong lady, I could probably dedicate an entire post to her and what she has been through!
I learned it’s nice to take pride in yourself and feel your best, even if it’s for your boyfriend on a Friday night – movie night or having a vino night with your girls. But don’t get me wrong, there are most certainly many times where I don’t wear makeup or do my hair! I just like to remind myself of the old fashion ways I guess.
Housewives back in the day would vacuum, dust, make the beds, cook..you name it. all while in heels, pearls, lipstick and a dress. Have you ever noticed older women today get more dressed up than anyone? Lol, appearance and class was huge back then. So I see no wrong in fixing yourself up for no reason.
Your thoughts? How often do you primp yourself?
I do very briefly before work (I wear very minimal makeup to work) and quickly when I get home from work with a cute lounging outfit for the boy.
