Phost-New Jeans and New Makeup [Jun. 9th, 2009|06:00 pm]

Pics are totally unedited









I'll have you note that's 4% spent on "needed" items and 96% spent on "crap that makes me giggle" in what I'm wearing today when I feel ill because I must sparkle to hide feeling sick. ha! I would argue on my behalf that I wear my glasses every day and have since 2005, making the cost per use quite low and that I also will get more wear out of my new makeup than just one day for sure.

Me too! I call them the Meowy Owies. I wear them when in bad pain because you can't be grouchy when you have such entertaining shoes on.

The Urban Decay lipgloss is tasty but hilarious and shameful to carry (if you could see it you'd know why).

The lipstick is vibrant which I like, but it doesn't taste very good.

Wow, really what a difference from the way you looked in your phosts than from when I first saw them. Even in light of all the junk going on in life, you look SO much happier.

The huge difference is the nerve pain control and also I'm no longer depressed. I was at an average pain level of 7-9 which is very high. Now it's down at 5-7 which is way more reasonable. It's amazing how much difference it makes.

Even though I am drastically allergic to kitties and therefore not a cat person I adore the shoes. They're so cute! You know I wear all sorts of outre accessories and clothes. Sometimes I wonder if some people might think a woman my age shouldn't be wearing some of it, but, ultimately, I don't really care. :o)

You look awesome, as always. Oh, and have you ever looked at things from a cost-per-wear... wait... I think we talked about that. Bleh, my memory can really suck sometimes!

I do think of things on a "cost per use" and a "cost per joy" basis as part of my regular finances. For example, I value experiences more than most people, so travel is more important to me than my car even though I use my car every day. I will put off buying a new car so I can travel more.

Every so often I'll consider using cheap makeup and buy some of it, but there is a huge difference in how it feels on the skin to me, so I nearly always give up and go back to Sephora as soon as I have some spending cash.

Re: you and I are such GEEKS!!!

The thing about the cost of dating vs. scoring is that romance is always a losing proposition UNTIL and UNLESS you find the right person. The fact that it only has to work out once to be worth all of the heartache is why we stay in what is generally a losing game. Think of it this way, FAR more people win than in any sort of gambling. An unlikely 50% are lottery winners in the game of finding a lifetime partner. I find that pretty encouraging.
