The Eyes Have It


So, it’s Friday.

I said I would post my eye experiment by today, and I am here to do just that.  I am still using the iPhone to take pics, so, forgive the quality.  But I just don’t want to try to figure out the whole expensive camera self timer feature.  I don’t think it matters too much the quality – it’s the experience.

And I want to say, I am seeing a bit of change here already.  Already.

You see, I set out to do my eyes.  But, in doing my eyes, I felt the rest of my face needed a little boost, too. So, I did my typical makeup routine, just a little more care.  And I curled my hair, as if I have a special place to go…which I kind of do, but I hardly count a restaurant lunch as something super special.  (Okay, yes, I do. I lied.  Anytime I get to go somewhere and do something other than bake a cake or wipe a butt, that’s pretty darned special.)  SO, not only did my eyes get  little makeover, my attitude, my face, my outfit – all played a part.  And it makes me FEEL better.  Like, less slobby. Less – well, less Mommy Pajama and more…something else.  I don’t know the right word for it.cueyes

So, my eyes.  Hard to tell here, but I used a shimmery pale teal on both my upper lids and just below my lash line as well.  I NEVER wear color on my eyes. Ever.  Brown, ivory – okay.  But no color.  Believe it or not, I think it makes my eyes a little more POP. As an art major in college, I would have thought otherwise.  My eyes, naturally, are kind of gray/blue.  I was always taught that browns brought out blue eyes.  This teal does it moreso.  I’m not going to try to figure it all out today – just making an observation.

eye1bwI’ve seen that a few of you are playing along with me, posting on your own websites.  I hope you will also post a link here on this post as well…and get that sweet shot out there on Facebook, too.  I guarantee someone, somewhere, is going to notice.  They may not say anything, but they WILL notice.  And what if it’s another Mom, a Mom feeling the same funk as we are – and you inspire her?

You can be someone else’s inspiration – their motivation for feeling good again.

You were certainly responsible, in so many ways, mine.

See you here in a few days for the next challenge.  Have a GREAT weekend, and keep on keeping on.   

PS – Hell, yes, I am wearing clothes. I wouldn’t do that to you!! 🙂
