Slapstick 12/27/17

Ya know how some people look like a million bucks, even if they just got dragged out of deep sleep unexpectedly in the middle of the night, or if they just came in from a wind storm?

Not this gal. This gal came from who knows where, was overdue for a hair cut, hadn't run a comb through her hair, had bed-head somethin' fierce.

But she cleaned up pretty well. I took her to a hair stylist who pampered her with shampoo and conditioner, gave her a good trim, and blew her hair dry to a glossy shine. I bought her some eyeliner on the way home, gave her money to choose an on-trend outfit, and surprised her with some new jewelry.

Phew!

    1. Hi, Carol, thanks for your comments : )

      The yellow bling was really fun to add—those spatters were the playful costume jewelry that provided just the right finishing touch.

  2. Hahahaha! LOVE this post. I can just make out an eye, a nose, and a top lip in the three largest brown forms. And frilly fancy duds. A vague sense of fireworks going off. Oh yeah, She is a superstar!!!
