Seven Things About Myself

1 – I feel woefully understocked in my nail polish collection compared to Ms. L’Etoile. Really. Go visit her and you’ll see what I mean.

2 – I have pared down my daily cosmetic ritual to three products. It’s what makes me ready to go out the door without frightening children.

3 – I’m turning 40 this year and I am having a real style turning corner moment.

4 – I need to lose about 30 lbs.

5 – I fondly remember my college days with Ms. L’Etoile, us all in black, wearing MAC Veruschka or some blood red colored lipstick. Ah, my Latin Goth days.

6 – My son’s class all singing their Months of the Year song always makes me laugh – it’s the “Decembeeeeeeeeer” part that cracks me up.

7 – I’m trying to tilt our family’s eating habits towards a 70/30 vegetarian to meat/based meals ratio.
