apparently 31 comes with some surprises.
i ran to the mall this evening (kidless! woohoo! well, sort of kidless, i guess!) to get the rest of my birthday present. i had requested some new makeup, thinking i could get a few fun eye shadows & some lip gloss, so i'll have something to throw on when i'm feeling a little rough after a "newborn night"! so as the girl starts doing my powder, i look in the mirror & see WRINKLES! LOTS of WRINKLES - right @ the corners of my eyes!!! where did those come from????! omg, & there's a major line right in the middle of my forehead. seriously, what??!
after i took a few deep breaths, i asked for a different powder & we finally found one that @ least didn't accentuate the wrinkles. i guess it was lighter or something - maybe it was for more "mature women"!! :(. what in the world??
so i guess 31 + this pregnancy has totally made my skin dry, well & it's also winter... do i need to use vaseline or something?? d - doesn't your mom use preparation h??!!! (ooops! am i revealing her secrets on the internet??!). i've been banking on having my mom's skin (not many wrinkles @ 50+), but it looks like i was wrong. it's a rough world out there...
the good news is, i did get some fun new eye shadows - even a light purple! woohoo! i've gotta wear something fun to take away from the wrinkles :) haha!!
