Day five of no central heating and natural gas-heated water.
Today I cried…
Well, almost. I almost cried, but then I saw the sun coming out and realized it was going to be a pretty warm day, so I wasn’t going to freeze. Yet.
As of now, the ETA for getting the gas line repaired is first thing tomorrow, and I’m keeping all of my fingers crossed.
In related news, I’m getting pretty good at what I call the hot water shuffle, which is when we heat up pots of water on the stove and dump them into a big tote in the bathtub.
It’s not as fun as a shower, but it gets the job done.
As for the temperature in the house, it’s been a little chilly, even with my space heater going 24/7 and bundled up in layers, and I desperately needed to feel warm today, so I pretended with this summery-ish look with bronzy brown.
I built it around my current MAC permanent eyeshadow crush, Amber Lights, a shimmery warm peachy brown.
Wearing mostly MAC and NARS here with a bit of Tom Ford and Hourglass thrown in for good luck.
