I'm Not a Girly Girl, But . . .

Growing up while my elementary school girlfriends were obsessing about training bras, when their periods would start and why their mothers wouldn't let them shave their legs, I was more interested in plotting how I was going to attend space camp and become a business woman.

Yes, I was a nerd!

I remember my dad trying to convince me to carry a purse after asking me if I had lotion or a tissue which he needed and letting me know I was supposed to have those types of things on hand. I didn't understand why if he needed those items so badly why he didn't carry a purse!

So yeah, I wasn't racing towards discovering my femininity, but now that I'm older I appreciate girly things like make-up and the importance of carrying a diaper bag purse. And while I don't wear make-up everyday there is one thing that I believe makes a world of difference on my face (not sure if it works for everyone so please let me know!) and that is . . . . 


I can have nothing else on my face, but once I put on eyeliner my face becomes alive! I used a crayon-type liner for years and would get compliments, but it always smudges. My sister Ariane introcuded me to Sephora's liquid liner over the summer which Mr. Love Bird LOVES on me, but now that I've seen this tutorial I think I seriously need to give powder liner a try.

Tell me this isn't amazing. Just say it isn't and see what happens!
