When I was a little girl my favorite game to play was dress-up. My mom would save what I called “twirly dresses” where I could spin and spin in them. I dreamt of this life where I would be able to wear fancy dresses on a regular basis, have my hair beautified.
I was the little girl who would play in my Mom’s makeup collection. I would step away with makeup caked on, mascara all over my eyes and the brightest lipstick shade that I could find.
Years later, I’m still that same little girl when it comes to getting dressed up. Well, minus the mascara all over my face. I have a little bit more skill in applying makeup these days. Although, I find that I still like the bright lipstick from time to time.
J and I went out for a night on the town a few weeks ago for a red carpet night at a local bar. It was nice getting all dolled up and meeting up with friends for a good stiff drink.
