Bobbi Brown

every girl wants to beautiful, and feeling beautiful really makes a difference in a girl's confidence. i think that's the biggest perk of makeup, actually. today i went by the bobbi brown counter at the mall and got a makeover, bought some makeup, and came home feeling fabulous. it's amazing how much some powdery stuff and some mascara can really make a difference in how i feel about how i look. i know that probably sounds so incredibly shallow, but it's going on inside me. and i think it's ok. makeup and fashion and shoes and all that are loads of fun in my opinion, but only if they don't supplant more important things. i have a whole fun philosophy of makeup, but i won't bore y'all with that. i just wanted to be like "yay makeup" and wound up explaining it and defending it kinda. i am weirdddddddddddd.

oh, and i have exciting news: i now have eight (8) chairs to go around my dropleaf table, which belonged to my great grandmother gertrude. how cool is that? mom and i drove out to the boonies and looked for hours today before coming back to down and - rather close to home - we found the most comfortable ones - which were, relatively speaking, inexpensive.

In your case, Lauren, you look gorgeous and "fabulous" whether you're confident that you are or not. When you are aware of your gorgeous nature, then you are simply aligning with reality. When a person is blessed to have a gorgeous SPIRIT as well as a gorgeous frame (which is the case with you), there's no risk of the focus on appearance leading to self-absorption. It's better to align with reality. Face the facts! And praise God.

Bobby Brown makeup? Is it for covering up black eyes?

Sounds like anonymous likes you. Except that they talk like a girl.

anonymous is actually my father... he says he's in touch with his feminine side...

I guess I didn't pay attention to the fact that fabulous is in quotation marks. Only a heterosexual male would feel the need to do that.
