I am inviting colour to play a bigger role in my life...
It has been a major player in my diet
Bright Foods make up the bulk of what I choose to eat...
The J. Peterman catalogue arrived in the post
the cover shouted colour
and had me lusting after something bright.
are a smidgen left
of my comfort zone
After a heart to heart with my inner voice
(the conservative one)
What transpired was an expedition
with the assistance of the gorgeous gals at the makeup counter
the savvy and svelte sales clerks at the shops
To get started
2 new eye shadows
a soft mauve-y pink
and a darker accent colour in a taupe- y brown
Dust the lid with the lighter shade using a sable brush
and in the outer 1/3 of the lid and a little above the natural crease
dust with the accent colour
blend well to soften
it creates depth
and makes the eyes

when she sits still long enough for me to capture her image.
but I had to get beyond the colours and put this garment on
I have trouble finding dresses that suit my figure
separates are much friendlier.
the shape flatters
wrap tops are kind
and very forgiving
and I seek them out
the fabric has body
more like a knit
skims the middle bits
with a dark navy lining
no need for a slip
it has a full flirty girl skirt
feminine and fun
I twirled in the fitting room
I bought the dress
and splodges of a tealy blue
Shiny black patent belt
came with the dress
I am thinking that I will go a thrifting for a brighter belt
maybe in the amber shade
I can see this with denim jacket and strappy sandals
a pashmina and kitten heels
I visualize this dress going for lunch
to the theatre
it's packable too
I'll be taking it away with me!
Pepper on a break
New toothpaste from the Health Food Store
is a Canadian company
with an interesting selection of flavours
this one sounded worth trying
and I LOVE the colour!
after all this colour chatter
the conservative voice spoke loudly...
I ordered 2 WHITE Tees from the J. Peterman catalogue!
