while several thousand readers pop by daily to read The Humble Bungalow posts,
the number of followers on Google Friend have recently decreased...
not by too many but enough that I noticed...and am curious.
So the question in my mind is WHY?
Here are a few of my thoughts...
~ The Hostess has been here for too long and has overstayed her welcome ~
~ the writing is dull ~
~ there is nothing of value for readers ~
~ your lives are busy ~
~ Paris dreams and travel was an exciting time and now a distant memory ~
~ since retiring my life has become fairly routine, it is quiet, simple and I am content ~
~ I have very little to share that you find of interest ~
So I am going to take a break...
I will be posting on Instagram if you care to pop over there...click on the pretty hydrangeas on the side bar and the link will take you to my page.
Yesterday was a whirlwind of activity
packed a lot into a weekday morning and afternoon.
Full to the brim with new things and above all ~ it was FUN!
I did something that I have never done before...
I had a professional make up application.
This is the "after" picture
at the Spa where I had a "makeover."
I am wearing more make up than I usually do.
The gal at the Spa used various Jane Iredale products...
primer was new to me and she used just a little and it covered my entire face.
Apparently it creates a base for all the other products.
Powder, eye shadow, blush, mascara, lipstick followed...
The results were quite startling,
it was me under all those products...
my complexion looked even
my eyes stood out more
my brows looked fuller
it does feel like a lot of fuss and bother.
I like to keep things quick and easy
~ Simple ~
I purchased two products that I was ready to replace...
powdered foundation and eye shadow.
The powder is in Satin and the eye shadow is called Supernova.
Lovely containers and all Jane's products are mineral based and safe.
Earlier in the day I went to the Tillicum Winners Store.
You can see my skin naked "before make up" here while I was shopping.
I do look a bit anemic without make up!
I bought a coral knit layering piece
not quite a jacket or a cardigan
something in between.
(very reasonably priced)
and this top
I have been craving colour.
A light cross body bag was suggested by my doctor
who recently diagnosed me with "supraspinatus tendonitis"
a very painful condition that has reduced the mobility of my arm and shoulder.
I need to go to physiotherapy, do specific exercises, generally try to rest the arm and shoulder
and if that fails to bring relief he will order a cortisone shot.
He has advised me to stop carrying heavy things...
like purses and grocery bags.
I needed new boots and these were on sale.
Clarks, comfy and somewhat stylish...
will wear them with jeans, pants, skirts and tights.
I wear boots almost every day and the Clarks that I bought last year are showing signs of wear on the soles, so before they fall apart I pounced on a new pair.
I did not overspend
everything I purchased was reasonably priced
and having been very frugal lately I felt no guilt whatsoever.
This pretty pink rose bloom caught my eye on my walk...
this bud will open in the warm sunshine someday soon.
Heralding that Spring must be just around the corner.
Bring on the sunshine and roses!
As always I welcome your thoughts and comments.
