They'll Make a Girl Out of Me Yet!

I've never been must of a girly girl. I'd rather spend money on gadgets and music than make up and clothes. I pick comfort over fashion and don't understand clothes, shoes and accessories over $30.

Until recently....

Napster, Morrigan, Angel and B are all slowly influencing my purchases...

Between Napster and Morrigan, I have had to increase my make up budget! The world of Loccitane, Bare Minerals, Sephora, and other stuff reproducing on my bathroom counter. I don't have the patience or the knowledge to find this stuff by trial and error on my of course I blame these ladies for my exponentially growing cosmetic bag.

Then Angel and B...they are taking care of the clothes, shoes and accessories. There was a day that the only colors I would wear would be black, white, blue or maroon. These days, it's all those weird titled colors...the one I'm addicted to? Melon. You could have asked me 5 years ago if I would have worn a melon shirt and I would have thought it was some kinky form of foreplay.

And I've never bought my own jewelry. Any jewelry I've worn has been a gift. and I wear the same jewelry every day. The same rings, necklace, earrings, etc. I am bad at picking what goes with what outfit and often forget I have something else. Until recently. They've had me buying many new pieces of jewelry and Angel has even made me some really cute beaded jewelry. Again, a year or two ago, no way! And then most recently and most shocking has been purses. I have never spent more than $20 for a purse. My thought was why buy an expensive purse and not have any money to put in it. Oh geez, that has since recently changed. I'm still apprehensive about this change! Oh yes, the two most recent purchases that are well over my $20 limit are cute, but it scares me that these types of purchases can't play music, give me directions, cook me dinner, make a phone call or send email.

But these ladies can't work miracles. I'm still the one that comes out of my room and asks Angel if what I'm wearing looks okay. I'm still the one that calls Napster in the middle of Sephora and asks here what to buy.

If I had my way, I would hire an all inclusive person to do all of this stuff for me. Because without these ladies, I'd go out in the ugliest, most comfortable attire I had and wouldn't know foundation from eye shadow.

My 2nd job starts next week to support my new habits!
