A few days before E's birthday, we met up with Grace, a friend of ours since school days that recently just returned from the US. I joined her a Elisa for a quick drink and a chat. I'm happy for her that she's well and happily married. You won't be able to believe how many of my classmates have married. I've always had the impression that we lived in the 21st century and women no longer needs to be married that early but I guess when we find 'the one' then hey, why the wait. I'm actually envious of them who have already married. I secretly (or maybe not so secretly now) wonder when my turn will come or if it'll ever come. I may not plan for a wedding but I do wonder. LOL
But anyway as I was heading out the car, Grace took out some gifts for me. ME! Oh la laaa, and it wasn't my birthday. She handed me a hand sanitizer that I much needed after I finished mine and left the one Pita gave me for my birthday at home and a Victoria Secret Eye liner Duo. Eyeliners! I LOVE eyeliners!
The application was easy, it was very smooth and very black. It gives off a matte black finish and slightly creamy. That was expected since Grace mentions it's best for smokey eyes effect. After about an hour or so, I went to check the mirror and *gasp* it was scary. It smudge very little but instead seems to have faded off in patches. But this is also because I didn't use any primer before hand. So in the end, I guess I will follow Grace's advise and use it as an eye shadow base rather than eye liner.
I'm not the type to complain about a gift and I'm not going to. I'm extremely thankful for the gift as it came from Grace when she wasn't inclined to give me anything. I've loved every single thing everyone has given me then and now. I'm so appreciative of ever little favours and gifts and ever so thankful. Thank you!!
Oh Grace did also mentioned that I needed a little tan and I guess I kind of have to agree with her. Ever since I stopped working, I sleep late, wake up late and hardly even greet Mr. Sun.I spend more time with Mr. UV Rays from the lightbulbs than getting natural sunlight and everyone knows that can't be good.
I didn't realize that I've become paler than usual and I now look sickly/deathly pale. It reminds me of how my teachers back in school was forever asking me if I was okay. I guess I kinda looked as if I was going to fall over and die or something. I mean, I represented my house in cheerleading and long jump and my class in netball and hurdles but still everyone remembers me as the 'sickly one'...
No matter, guess I'll head out a little more often or wear a bikini and give my neighbours a nose bleed when I sun tan myself on the backyard. I never did like the sickly pale look anyway.
