FOTD 7.23.14


When the boyfriend goes out of his way to say, “Damn, you look great today.  I think it’s the makeup,” you know you’ve got a keeper.  I pulled out the ol’ Naked palette while I was getting ready for work and I guess I picked a winning combination!  Nine times out of ten my makeup is quite soft and neutral, very work appropriate, and this is no exception.  Of course when I got to work the air conditioning was malfunctioning so the effort to look presentable hardly seemed worth it… it’s quite impossible to exist as anything other than a sweaty mess in the middle of summer in Florida with no A/C.

But I digress.  In the end the A/C was fixed and everyone stopped sticking to their desk chairs.  A happy ending for all!
