Being the great friends that they are – they made sure appointments for all the necessities to bring me out of my Cinderella (not at the ball) self were booked before they left. By the end of last week, I was my groomed self again! So, all though on the inside I was really feeling things - on the oustide I looked re-freshed.
I received an email from one of the N's today that made me both cry and smile.
We know that you are a butterfly trapped in the cocoon you have been put in! There are many things we cannot help you get back; – but the impeccably groomed lady you were, we can certainly help with that. We will be checking on your grooming appointments weekly – hope that’s ok.
Sent with Love, Respect, Caring and everlasting friendship.
I am truly blessed with the friendship's God has sent my way!
So, after my appointment with Shreko today, I made my way to the Chanel counter where the girl who always helped me, before my detour, was happy to get me started back on the basics. -
Powder blush -15 Orchid Rose; Rouge Coco in- 09-Organdi Rose and 05-Mademoiselle; Le Crayon Khol - 61-Noir and Natural Finish pressed powder 30-Natural.
I already have, mascara - I like Hypnose Drama by Lancome - black. I find the wand to be easier than other brands to apply with my left hand - and even when I have to bat my eye-lashes on the wand to apply, - when I'm having a non coordination day - the clumping factor is very minimal compared to other brands. I still have been unable to coordinate with left hand to apply eye-shadow, so I do not use - unless someone I trust is around to apply it on me.
We went with very natural colours - So - I guess this is the start of the new me; caring a little more about my every day look.
