Yes, Ladies, it's that time again. Time to slouch off the sweats, break out the skirts and lip gloss, and let the Hot Mama inside you shine!!
Ordinary Sarah and I were chatting on Facebook a few weeks back & I suggested we break out the defibrillator and give new life to the HMR. This was a mostly selfish request because for the past few months (Winter is tough on a girl), I've let things slide. The flat iron is rarely out of the drawer. My foundation has lasted months longer than normal. I've almost forgotten how to apply eye liner.
This leads me to my HMR question of the week: What do you do to spice up your look? What makes you feel shiny and happy again? When you've had enough of the day-to-day drab, what style fix to you immediately reach for?
Mine is hair dye. Almost always. I treat it like lip gloss. If it's good, it makes me feel like a million bucks. If it's bad, it's only temporary. I have been every color under the rainbow...red, auburn, brown, black, purple, and an unfortunate blue that turned green. The only thing I haven't tried is true blond.
In desperate need of a pick-me-up last weekend, I hit the home hair dye aisle at our local Mega Mart. I decided to go "Intense Auburn" thinking it would be reminiscent of all the times I tried to dye my hair red in college. It always turned out sort of red with purple undertones. Apparently they've changed the dye formulas in the past 15 years because "Auburn" wasn't the key word in this dye. It was "Intense."
In fact, as soon as the towel came off my head, I hopped right back in the shower and shampooed my little heart out. The Auburn I was so looking forward to had more of a Bozo the Clown tone to it at first. But after a good shampoo and blow dry, it wasn't too bad. In fact, 2 days & 2 more shampoos later, I'm really happy with it.
Husband doesn't understand my need to experiment with color, but he's a boy. What do they know?
Let's hear it. What are your go-to look changers?
