We Had a Ball

Last night was our annual awards banquet.
I waited all afternoon for my Fairy Godmother to arrive but no such luck.
I had to reach into my own bag of tricks.
Before...After

Fierce face
I love the sleeves on my champagne dress.
It has a Doris Day vibe.
I'm so tired of the sea of black.

Here are some of the products I use to create a little magic.
To prevent the dreaded flat hair.
This tinted moisturizer gives light sheer coverage.
I use this tinted moisturizer on my legs to cover the pasty white winter glow.
This eyeliner glides on.
This creamy eyeshadow stays put without creasing.
This beautiful compact
holds all kinds of magic.

I mixed a little bit of this with my tinted moisturizer for my face to give me a little J Lo glow.
Sweep a bit of this sparkly white powder on the brow bone and on the inside corner of the eyes.It opens up the eyes and gives me an instant eye lift.
A touch of this highlighter on the cheek bones brightens my face.
This two step long lasting lip gloss really works without drying out my lips.


Some highlights of the evening...

  • real cloth hand towels in the restroom
  • rich chocolate cake for dessert
  • dancing like a rockstar to the DJ
  • my big fat gift certificate

Every year Tom is the star of the agency. He gets crystal awards. We have quite a collection.

I get the gift certificates. Usually to Nordstrom. This year it is good anywhere in the mall.

Hmmm I wonder what I should get...maybe shoes.
