That time of year again…
I usually take an annual glammed up self portrait around my birthday. A nice picture of me that I can frame up for the hubby and just for posterity’s sake. I usually forget to print them, though. This year I actual have several “self portraits” due to this blog, but I thought I would do it anyways.
I’m only about a month or so late on this…and these were taken about two months ago. I am obviously a bit busy lately.
Work, work, work…plus I have been reading trashy romance novels into the wee hours of the morning when I get a chance to relax. I just haven’t had the energy to do outfit shots lately.
I had dyed my hair the day before, so it is very fresh color. It fades over a few washings and then kinda sticks to the light auburn color you usually see in my pictures.
I am wearing a $10-15 stretch velvet dress I bought at TJ Maxx about 15 years ago.
Make-up done by me. Oh, how I love make-up.
I once had a guy friend come over, so I could do his makeup for Halloween. He was dressed as a girl with big fake boobs and everything. He got hit on at the bar that night by a guy who thought he was a girl. I am that good.
I gave my hubby a 5×7 of the two pictures below for his desk at work in his Valentine’s Day card. The last one he had was about 7 or 8 years old, so it was time for a refresh.
Hopefully, I can get a few outfit pictures taken during the week again. Need to get to bed earlier, so I have a few minutes in the morning before rushing out the door.
Lately sleep has been winning!
