  38. Kate says:

    Now, that I’m fully dressed and can answer this properly.

    Mood: Relaxed and stressed at the same time. My parents and my aunt were talking about me yesterday. My aunt won’t sign my loans to go to my art school at all due to the economy. She then proceeded to ask my parents if I were interested in receiving a BA in Library Science at CLC due to my love for books. They talked about this without ME present at church. I’m not one who likes being talked about as if I were a juvenile. I may be a bit emotionally behind due to my autism but I do wish they discussed this with me and not behind me. It’s a bit stressful. I have said I would think about but do I really want to spend my life shelving books and finding things for students? I don’t know.

    Lips and cheeks: I’m wearing Nivea A Kiss of Moisture on my lips and the tiniest tab of the second shade in Covergirl’s True Cheeks #1.

    Breakfast: A cupcake.

    Hair: Pulled back in a bow clip at the nape of my neck.

    Purse and shoes: Dearform slippers for shoes and my Guess? purse is upstairs in my room.

    If you could play hooky today and do anything your heart desired, what would you do? Go to Australia for the rest of winter. I’ve heard it’s quite warm there currently.

    Best part of the weekend? Brushing Zena with the Bamboo FurBuster comb. I definitely suggest it for Tabby Tabs as it does get that undercoat very well. My grandparents came over for dinner yesterday and we had a great time for once. I’m normally very shy and withdrawn because I usually see them with my aunt’s family and that’s just too many people in one condo for me. I become very, very withdrawn and shy around that many people.

    Weekly goals: Brush Zena with the Furbuster (one brushing and she’s twice as soft), visit the psychiatrist, make a dentist appointment (ew) and get my bangs trimmed.

I’ve been visiting the pediatric oncology ward since I got married five years ago (it was a joint venture for my husband and me).

    I’ve been wearing Violetta like any of my other lipsticks (all out, which looks hella cool on my pale NC20 skin), but it looks great also with a Lipglass like Snowscene over it to mellow out the colour. It’s actually much more pinky-toned than the website satch, so it makes it a bit more wearable. I’m liking it more than Lavender Whip and Fashion Mews–power to the purple!

    • Karen says:
