Wednesday September 30, 2015 - Tuesday was a great day.

Tuesday, I had my bi-weekly electrology session. It still look about an hour, but my face has less hair with each visit.

I wore a teal and blue outfit with a multi-color jacket. The jacket had both teal and blue which blended the outfit. I added a yellow pendant to highlight the yellow in the jacket.

My tech stated she like my pendant, which was a good sign that the yellow stood out a little and brought the yellow out from the jacket.

My pocketbook was green and yellow, while my hat was blue and white. The blue, green and yellow were linked by my jacket.

My leggings were teal and my shirt was blue. I added a dark gold belt to highlight my hips.

After my 1 hour session, I put on my makeup in the bathroom and then left.

I decided to go to McDonald's to eat. I do not like McDonald's, but it is cheap and quick. I was headed for the LGBT Thrift Store and need to move fast.

Normally, I would order thru the drive thru window,. However, today, I wanted to increase my interaction with the public. So I parked and headed for the front door. As I was crossing the parking lot, a McDonald's employee passed me and stopped to say how much she loved my outfit and I looked so good in it.

I smiled and said thank you very much. I loved that compliments. She seemed so sincere. I was feeling very comfortable and casual today. It was rainy and you could tell, fall was approaching.

As I walked in the restaurant, I was greeted by the manager at the counter and asked for my order. She was smiling and I returned the smile. She used female pronouns as I ordered a double hamburger, small fries and a drink.She asked if I was going to eat in or take out. After pausing a few minutes, I decided  to take it out.

I ate in the car as I drove to the thrift store. As I stated in an earlier post, this thrift store supports a LGBT Homeless Shelter.  I have donated clothes here but this time I wanted to buy some new shirts.

I also bought three t-shirts for my workout wardrobe. They were 50% off and will add color to my outfits.
Next, I went to CVS to buy some makeup. My mascara needs to be replaced and my eyebrow pencil broke. So, I went to CVS. The counter lady was working in the isle and said "Hello, sir can I help you". I said I was OK and I was going to the coupon kiosk. 
I was lucky because I received a $5 coupon for beauty products. Plus they were having a sale on L'Oreal products. So I was able to replace both of my beauty items with a $5 coupon and I received another $5 coupon after I bought them.
When I reached the checkout counter, the same sales lady did not use any pronouns when cashing me out. I used my coupon and then received another one. She said that was a good deal and I agreed. As I was saying in a previous post, I do not care about pronouns used. I am not trying to pass, I am becoming comfortable with my feminine look.
I had planned to go to the mall and visit the cosmetic counter. I forgot my old foundation. I also wanted to visit Ulta Beaty Store. However, time was passing quickly and with the rain, I had to get home to pickup the Grandkids.
So I cut the day short and headed home. Luckily I did because I ran into two traffic jams due to accidents. When it rains in Atlanta people do not slow down and accidents happen.
I had a good time and felt really comfortable today. Compared to 10 months ago, I know longer care where I go or who is there. I can tell because my Femboy look is becoming more feminine in terms of clothes and makeup.
I plan on adding foundation to my Femboy look which will include contouring and highlighting. By Spring 2016, the only difference between my Femboy look and appearing as Susan will be hair and heels.

Tuesday September 29, 2015 - This video is so touching.

In less than 9 months, my journey will make a decisive turn as I will start HRT.

I remember growing up and wanting to be a girl so bad. I use to pray every night that I would wake up a girl. I got very nervous and stopped that prayer when my breasts started to grow due to gynecmastia (Lol).

I found this viral video of a young pre-teen transgirl learning she is starting HRT. When I saw this, I started to cry. I was so happy for her and her Mom is fantastic.

I realized, I will probably cry when I pick up my first prescription. I will be about 40 days from my 60th birthday. It took 50 years, but it will be worth it.

Tuesday September 29, 2015 - Electrology and Femboy Day

It's been two weeks since my last electrology session. My facial hair growth is noticeably light. I wounder if one hour of clearing is required.

I can tell my sessions are coming to an end. In a way, I will miss these sessions. I will not miss the pain but I will miss my tech. It will probably be similar to my missing my trips to Dallas and e3000.

But I look forward to my next step, which will be voice lessons. I could probably buy one of those audio or video lessons. But I am going to start with a personal voice coach, either online or local. If anyone has a recommendation, I would appreciate it.

I think I will need that one-on-one interaction and feedback to help build my confidence.

Back to my day after my electrology session. I usually shop for shoes, clothes and/or get a pedicure. But I am going to visit that LGBT thrift store and talk to the Executive Director about volunteering.

Also, I am going to go outside my comfort zone and find some places I have not or normally do not visit.

Monday September 28, 2015 - HRT Effects

I am 256 days (8.5 months) away from starting HRT under my doctors care. It seems like a long time away. But I have alot to do before I start.

This morning, I was thinking about the effects of  my treatment, both mentally and physically.

I must remember I will not turn into a 25 year old Transwomen. But if I take my time and do it right, even at 60 years old, I will be satisfied my results.



This is why I lost weight first and eliminated my beard. My next steps over the next 256 days are makeup, voice, female mannerisms, coming out to family and a comfort level in public.

This is an exciting period that hopefully will make the next 256 days move quickly.

Sunday September 27, 2015 - Susan needs some time.

I have been busy this past week and my femininity feels neglected. I would not say its dysphoria, its just as I look in the mirror, I see signs of neglect.

My finger nails need work. I have not had my bi-weekly body shave and I have stubble all over. Yuck.

My face could use a lemon facial and my body needs a good moisturizing.

So, late Saturday afternoon, I decided to take sometime to work on me.

 I went to the gym for a 75 minute workout. I could have gone longer and felt a need to workout longer, but the gym closes early on weekends. Darn.

After my workout, I took a nice bubble bath and shaved. While in the bath, I watched some Youtube videos on makeup. Next, I took a quick shower to make sure all that shaved hair was off of my body. Then I moisturized my whole body.

Afterward, I felt great and feminine. So I completed a lemon facial which really smooths out my face.

I put on a nice cute night gown and went downstairs to watch some TV. While watching TV, I took off my clear nail polish, buffed and shaped my nails and then reapplied a couple of coats of clear nail polish.

Now, I look and feel much better. I feel more relaxed and connected to my femininity.

I will be ready for my Tuesday Femboy day out.

Friday September 25, 2015 - Watching other women

I am constantly watching what other women wear. I remember reading an article about developing your dressing style by watching other women your age.

I have gotten some good ideas by watching what women my age are wearing. One of the problems is that most women around 60 ish, no longer dress to impress. Age, weight gain, illness and changes in society mean that many women just throw on some jeans, flip flops and a top.

But every once in a while I see an outfit that inspires me. I took a picture of this young lady in an orange dress. She was wearing a multicolored pair of sandals with orange in it. The color looked good on her and it brought out the orange shoe color.

Her outfit color made me think about those multi-color flats I bought this summer. I bought a black pair and a white pair. That orange color would bring out the orange in both shoes and look really cute.

So I am going to find a pair of orange pants that would look good with both pair of flats. Below are pictures of both pair.

Thursday September 24, 2015 - Transgender Healthcare

I spent over $15,000 in the last three years on just electrology. I paid for this out of my pocket. Now I will be moving to HRT. I had planned on using insurance for this. However, I have changes jobs and no longer have good employee healthcare.

So I decided to research heath care for our community.

The charts below show a steady increase in large companies offering transgender health care.

Wednesday September 23, 2015 - Being a Transgender teen in Texas

Even in deep red Texas, a medical program for transchildren has opened. It's called Genecis (GENder Education and Care, Interdisciplinary Support ). It's located at the Children's Medical Center Dallas.

They will start before puberty (around 12 years old) with puberty blockers.

Within a generation, transitioning after 40 will probably no longer exist. Everyone will transition earlier in life.

Tuesday September 22, 2015 - Playing with makeup

Finally, I took Monday afternoon off to play with my makeup. I love putting on makeup.

Here is a picture of me without makeup.

I am not wearing foundation yet. I am older now, so it was important for me to eliminate my facial hair first.  I am almost finished and my face is much smoother and clearer. I no longer shave.

I am learning via youtube videos, how the highlight and contour using my foundation. But I am going to wait until I finish my electrology (by Dec 2015) before I add foundation.

I have a lot to learn about putting the rest of my makeup on and finding the right color and brand.


I have been using a medium brown eyebrow pencil to define, frame and lighten my eyebrows. I box my eyebrows everyday I go out as a Femboy or a woman. So I am good doing my eyebrows and can do them quickly.

You can see in the picture, I did one of my eyebrows and you can see the difference. The left brow was done and is defined and appears thicker. The next picture shows both eyebrows done.

Back in the early 1990's I had my eyebrows permanently arched and cleared via electrology. I never had anyone say anything  about my eyebrows as I had them arched.

I remember my youngest daughter saying she wanted eyebrows like mine when she grew up.


When I began going out as a Femboy, I started wearing just clear lip gloss. Then I moved up to a brown lip gloss. Now I wear a lip pencil under a red lipstick color and a clear lip gloss cover to add shine.

Here is a picture with just the left side having lipstick.

This picture has 100% of my lips done. I am pretty good at coloring my lips.

I am not 100% happy with this color. So I do need to play with my lipstick color.


I have added blush to my Femboy look. I add it to the apple of my cheek and blend it up along my cheek bone and up my temple to my eyebrow.

I mentioned the other day, that the lady at the beauty supply store thought my face was "glowing". I hope part of the reason was because of my blush placement.

I need to play around with the blush color. But I like the placement. The picture on the left shows the blush I added. It does highlight my cheek and area in front of my ears.


This is the area where I have the most problems. I add:

  1. Mascara
  2. Eyeliner
  3. Eye Shadow
I have gotten pretty good with mascara. I have been wearing it most days and I curl them.

The eyeliner, I am still learning. My youngest daughter helped me, but I still need a lot of practice.

I add eyeliner to my waterline of my bottom eyelid. But I can not get liner on my upper waterline. So I add the liner just above my upper lash line. I am still learning how to draw that line straight and thin. Its going to take practice.

For eye shadow, I added a primer today. I bought a primer from CVS and I like it. Once added, my shadow went on easier and the color stayed longer. I need to learn how to add color to match my wardrobe and define my face. I am watching Youtube videos and practice.

During this session, I added a light color under the arch of my eyebrow and along the eyelid in an attempt to
bring out my arch and contrast my black eyeliner and mascara. I added a dark color in the crease of my eyelid and a second dark color at the outside of my eyelid. I then blend these colors just enough to eliminate any hash change in colors. But these colors provide depth and highlight to my eyes.

After Makeup

This is how I looked after I finished with my makeup.

I still have work to do, but I am getting better.

Once I add a light foundation with highlight and contour, it will give me a great look. Plus I found a technique to use foundation to reduce the bags under my eyes.

I am glad I  do not need a beard cover. Beard cover added a thicker foundation look. I use to have to shave a second time and then reapply makeup, if I wanted to be out late at night.

I like how my glasses help frame my face. The glasses help hide the bags under my eyes.

Overall, the few hours I spent on markup was fun. I am going to buy a variety of sample colors and brands to practice with. I will continue to practice to get better and develop my style.

Monday September 21, 2015 - Transgender Show Survey

This was the summer of Transgender TV shows. I watched some of them and will eventually watch them all via Youtube.

I was wondering if you watched any of these shows and what you thought about them. Below is a quick survey. I would hope you will take less than one minute to complete.

I did add Transparent even though it began before last year.

Prancing Elites was tough for me. As an African American, it created too many stereotypes for me to take as a serious Transgender show. It does appear from my readings that some of the members are trans.  I decided to add it because it was a summer 2015 show. By the way, the Prancing Elites will have a second season.

Their dancing styles comes from the world famous Prancing  J-Settes of Jackson State University in Jackson MS. As a freshman in college, I saw the original J-Settes in our homecoming parade. Being from New Jersey, I had never seen anything like. I could have married any of them that day (lol). I remember following them all along the parade route.

I think this year marks the continued growth of positive transgender people in TV and movies. Over the next few years, we will have ups and downs but overall the trend will be up.

Sunday September 20, 2015 - Father upset with son becoming a Transwoman

There was a recent Dr. Phil show that was very enlightening. A young man named Zach began to transition. His father, really his uncle who raised him since 2 days old, can not handle the transition.

I found the show very interesting because you could tell, the father loves his son but can not get his mind around him becoming her. Ofcourse, I can understand from the son's stand point, her desire and need to transition. How many of us worry about family members not accepting the transition.

But atleast the father is attempting to explain his problem with his "daughter".

Dr. Phil, did a good job trying the discuss the issue while helping the father at least understand his daughter's reasons for transitioning.

It was a good show. I could not find the full episode, but I did find three videos from the show.

Dr. Phil had another transwomen, join the discussion. Kristin Beck, a highly decorated former Navy Seal and former member of the elite Seal Team 6, says she knew from a very early age that she was transgender. After her 20-year Naval career, she became the first former Seal to openly be transgender. Both Dr. Phil and Ms. Beck attempt to help the father understand.

Below is a link to #soldierintransition which is where this episode is being discussed.

Saturday September 19, 2015 - Sorority to accept Transwoman

This is just an exciting time for our community as the general community continues to show signs of acceptance. Of course, not everyone is accepting. It takes time and its moving in the right direction.

Xi Omicron Iota, a Missouri State University Sorority, changed one of its membership requirements to include transgender students. A proposal was passed last week to change one of the sorority’s requirements from “be a girl” to “identify as a girl.” Kara Venzian, a junior political science major and Xi Omicron Iota secretary, proposed the change in order to modernize the sorority.

“I think it’s important that we give all women a chance to become part of our sisterhood,” she said. “This just essentially brings (Xi Omicron Iota) into the 21st century.”

There are only three membership requirements for Xi Omicron Iota, according to the sorority’s bylaws. Along with identifying as female, students must also attend MSU full time and have at least a 2.75 cumulative GPA.

Danielle Marquard, a senior marketing major and president of Xi Omicron Iota, said the change shows that the sorority is full of “welcoming, open women.”

The requirement change came just in time for Xi Omicron Iota’s fall recruitment, which starts on Sept. 13. Even though some students won’t like the requirement change, Venzian said a lot of MSU students are trying to be more accepting and welcoming. She hopes students will appreciate the change, and it will lead to more progress in accepting others. “I hope that maybe this is a first step in a long line of improvements that all organizations will take,” Venzian said.

I love this story and would think about joining, if I were a MSU transwoman.

Below is a closed poll from reads of a local news paper. Check out the results.

Friday September 18, 2015 - Goodwill Shopping

I went to Goodwill to shop for some fall tops. I spend over two hours looking for tops and other items. I eventually found about ten items. However, I was only going to buy two items that were on the 50% off sales list. So I tried the item on and took pictures of the best ones.

I bought two of the best ones I tried on.

Thursday September 17, 2015 - Shoe Shopping

On Tuesday, I did go look at some shoes at both Payless Shoes and Shoe Show.

Shoe Show has that tan shoe I want. But it was originally $29.95. I saw the shoe for $22.95 because of a buy one get the second one and half price sale.

I asked the sales clerk, if they had this shoe in my size. I did not see a size 12 pair on the shelve.

The clerk stated that she also loves that shoe. It was a fast seller and she has a pair, size 8.5 on layaway in the back.

I told her I loved this shoe and was waiting for it to be on sale.

However, I was told that the larger sizes are gone and to check back often. Thursday is their shipment day and that I should check back on Friday. By Sunday, the larger sizes will probably be sold. This sales clerk is so nice to me. Every time I come in we talk about shoes and/or clothes.

At Payless Shoes, I tried on three pair of shoes I liked.

 This open toes shoe was cute and did not hurt my feet. I liked the color, but really did not see a need for this pair in my wardrobe.
 I usually do not like pointed toe shoes because they make my feet look too long. However, these shoes looked pretty and did not make my feel appear too long. Maybe it was the square silver emblem on the shoe. But I liked it. The color and style was different for me but nice.
Finally, I tried on a new pair of black flats. But I like the pair I bought at Shoe Show this spring. I am not ready to replace those.

I do not need a second pair of black flats.

Overall, I was just looking on Tuesday. I did not have much money and I do not want to buy and not need it. I am looking for flats in colors I do not have or are hard to find.

In heels, I have enough until next fall, when I start presenting more as a female and not a femboy.

Thursday September 17, 2015 - Tuesday Shopping Day

After I finished my pedicure, I needed to run some errands.

First I went to a beauty shop to look for a few new rings and bracelets. While looking around, a young lady came up to me and asked if the foundation bottle she had in her hand matched her skin color.

It looked a little too light. So I told her that the foundations in these store are poor. She needs to go to CVS for a mid-level quality foundation or Macy's for a high end foundation from Fashion Fair or MAC.

She told me that she was using foundation from this store to test colors. I told her to use the inside of her elbow to place some foundation. If you can blend it in until it disappears, then that is your color.

She said thank you and thought that I knew about makeup because mine looked so good. She said I was glowing.

WOW. No one ever said that before.

Today, I changed by blush pattern slightly, I added blush at the apple of my cheeks and blended is upward along my cheek line toward my ears and then up over my temples and around my eyes. I added a little blush along my forehead and along the bridge of my nose. I then blended the blush on my cheeks downward toward the center of my cheeks.

Maybe the blush added a glow, but I was so happy that she gave me that compliment.

I returned the compliment by saying her eyebrows were so cute. She stated that she just had them arched and she wanted to add makeup. So she was buying some to take home and play with. I told her to go to YouTube and watch some of the good makeup videos. I watch them frequently to learn and get ideas.

We talked a few more minutes about eyeliner and mascara. Then, I  floated out of the store and decided to head to CVS.

Once at CVS, I went to the coupon machine and scanned my card. I received 8 coupons but I could not use any of them.

The sales clerk said hello and asked if I needed any help. I said no, but thank you and walked around to see if any of my basic items were on sale. They were not, so I decided to go get something to eat.

I went to QuickTrip to buy some gas and to get a pretzel. I noticed both the Kitchen clerk and checkout clerk used male pronouns when talking to me. They were both nice and asked if I needed help, but I noticed the pronouns. When I was at CVS and the beauty shop, I do not remember anyone using pronouns.

Calling me sir and mister, does not bother me. But it is interesting that some places and people treat me different than others.

After I ate my pretzel with ice water, I went to shop at Goodwill. Will post my Goodwill shopping tomorrow.

Wednesday September 16, 2015 - Electrology and Pedicure

It's been two weeks since my last session. I no longer shave, but this time there was a noticeable reduction of  facial hair. Most of the hair is white and thin. I noticed very few black and thick hairs left.

My last session was more painful that most of the last 30 sessions I have had with this technician.

This time, the pain was back to its lower level. I was thinking what caused the different pain level? One reason might be that last time I was in boy mode. It was the first time I was in boy mode since I started in January 2015. Today was in Femboy mode.

It seems crazy to me, but could connecting and bring out my femininity (Susan), create a change within me? That change seems to reduce my appetite, allows me to handle electrology better and brings a calmness to me. Maybe being Susan is the real me.

Well, it took a little under a hour to clear my face. Afterward, I went into the bathroom and put on  my makeup.  I wish, I had taken a closeup of my makeup. I liked the way my mascara, eyeliner and eye shadow looked. I have been watching Youtube videos about makeup and I just need to practice more.

My Femboy outfit was slightly more feminine than usual. My cotton flowery blouse is trimmed in lace and very feminine. My green outer shirt matched the green within the inside blouse. I wore my brown leggings and brown cap.

I felt really cute today and no apprehension about getting out, running errands and shopping.

Being me is such a beautiful thing.

I worn my new Payless  flats that I bought in Orlando, last month.

I saw these shoes back in June at $19.99. I wanted them the first time I saw them because of the color and design. These flats will wear well this fall. I bought them in Orlando for slightly under $10.00.

It's a great fall shoe that matches with so many fall colors.

After my session, I went to get my pedicure.

I went into my usual nail shop and was warmly created. I looked for a nail polish. I usually choose a neutral or brown color. While looking for a color, the owner stated that she had a nice fall color. It looked orange to me, so I decided to try it.

I ended up outside my comfort zone. The color was more red than I thought. Also, I wanted to add a white tip because I liked my polish was french tip.

My tech added a line of silver along the bottom of the white tip.

My tech makes her own clothes. Last time she worn a beautiful laced blouse. This time she had a very nice and colorful blouse. I asked her if she would make me a pretty top like the last two she had on. She said yes.

I took a picture of her blouse. The sleeves were elbow length with a thin material that was very feminine.

As usual, she took about 90 minutes and did a great job. Even though, I do not show my feet in public, I love having pretty feet. Right now its just for me to see but I can not wait to wear open toe shoes and show my feet off.

I think healthy smooth clean and well kept feet are very feminine.

Tomorrow, I will discuss my errand shopping.

Tuesday September 15, 2015 - Femboy Day

I was running late and forgot to activate my daily post until this afternoon. I wrote a quick post while getting my pedicure.

Over the next two day, I will discuss my day. In summary:

  1. I had my electrology session
  2. I had a pedicure
  3. went Shoe shopping at Shoe Show and Payless Shoes
  4. went to CVS
  5. went to Quicktrip to by a pretzel
  6. shopped at Goodwill
I had a great time and felt so comfortable.

Tuesday September 15, 2015 - Electrology Day

Today is a femboy day. I have an electrology appointment and a pedicure appointment today. After my appointments, I am going to go shopping for some fall tops.

Monday September 14, 2015 - Homecoming Queen

Oak Park High School in Kansas City, Mo. voted Landon Patterson 2015-2016 Homecoming Queen.

 “Going in, I didn't know what to expect,” said Landon Patterson about the moment she had been waiting for, but never thought would come. “I've dream't about it, freshmen year like 'oh I wanna be that girl out there walking,'” she recalled.

What is great about this is that Landon was born a boy, but ever since she can remember, she says she has identified as a girl. This year, she fully transitioned.

Every time I read about this I am amazed at how far society has come since I was in high school in the early seventies. Now I know that some people consider that ancient. If in 1975 someone were to talk about 1935, I remember considering that ancient history.

I love reading these stories and  feel so happy for her. She is not the first and will not be the last. But just to have the opportunity is fantastic. It shows what an positive family and community environment means to the transgender people.

We can give so much to enhance our community, if give a chance. However, once given the chance, we must try our best and work hard to give back.

But  I wonder, if I were in high school, would I been living as a girl? I knew by 8 years old. Would I have told my parents? My parents were liberal and very involved in the civil rights communiy. Would they have let you live as a girl? These are interesting questions to think about.

But it's only the here and now that counts. We have the opportunity to spend the future as we want. This is like the Matrix and we can choose which pill to take.

As Homecoming Queen Landon Paterson said, “Be you! Life is too short, you just have to embrace who you are.”

Sunday September 13, 2015 - Work Out

I have been working so hard and not eating as well as I should. So with the start of  the NFL, I decided to have a heavy workout day.

I need to get my weight back under control.

First I need to get back to working out four days a week. Two of those days at 60 minutes and two days at least 90 minutes of cardio.

Second, I will use myfitnesspal phone app to count my daily calories at 1,770 per day.

Third, weight myself daily at the same time on the same scale.

Forth, measure parts of  body with a tape measurer, once a month to tract my long-term goals.

Fifth, I will print a monthly calendar to tract my exercise, daily calories and weight.

The best way for me to accomplish a goal is to set these tasks and follow it daily.

Sunday September 13, 2015 - Oh Well

I had planned to have a makeup play day on Saturday. After I got dressed, I received a reminder that I had a dinner meeting to attend around 4 pm. That ment I could not have my play day, because I had to get ready for this event.

It was with a client and his friends, so I had to go in boy mode.

I hate when this happens. I had cleared all meetings last week because I had to work on an important proposal. I forgot about this Saturday event.

I wanted to wash clothes and play with makeup because everyone was out of the house all day.

Here is what I was wearing when I got the text reminder. I had my new teal shoes with a matching teal shell. The shell top has lace around it. I added my skinny blue jeans and a white, teal and red shirt.

It was a nice outfit with a big silver bracelet and silver pendant on my necklace.

In this picture, I had my dark grey hat. I was going to remove the hat while playing with my makeup.

I need to practice my eye lining and eye shadow skills. I had some additional  lip stick colors and I wanted to see how they looked. I have been wearing the same lipstick for over two months.

While at this event, I saw with mature lady in an outfit I loved. It was all white and she was 50+ year old, about my age and her outfit was so cute.

She reminded me of me as Susan. Her hair was in a short cut and the same color as my wig.

I loved her skinny jeans and those heels were to die for. The heels were white with white straps. The white straps had silver squares on them. Her top was white with a long but jagged hemline. Her top had with lace all over it. Under the outer top was a white shell top.

She had on a lot of jewelry. but it was not overkill.

It took me a longtime to get a good picture of her without me appearing to be stalking her.

As an older women, it was good to see a lady around the same age, rocking a nice style.

I hope I will be able to continue to rock my style, well into my late sixties and seventies.

Saturday September 12, 2015 - Makeup

Today I am going to play around with my makeup. I finished my proposal, so I am going to do some house cleaning. After cleaning, I am going to experiment with makeup.

I need to buy some more, but I am going to have fun with my current supply. I will get to Ulta Beauty in the next couple of weeks to buy replenish my supply.

I wish I had a vanity for my makeup. It would serve as a place to store and apply my makeup. Currently I use the bathroom sink and mirror.

I will post my result later today.
