I'm from the Mississippi Gulf Coast and have lived in Dallas since 1997. I have a shopping addiction like most women. LOVE lipstick! If I could only have one cosmetic, it would definitely be lipstick. I have an "I Love Lucy" collection and named my cat Lucy. Lucy has a tummy rub addiction. She will play soccer with anything that's not glued down to get my attention. I'm the youngest of five, obviously Catholic and mostly French and Black Irish. Enough about me, tell me about you???

I'm known for always wearing my signature bright opaque red or magenta lipsticks with blue undertones. You can just wear lipstick and still appear Old Hollywood Glamorous. You're never fully dressed without your lipstick or at least I'm not.
Besides wearing black, I love to wear beautiful jewel tone colors like red, magenta, royal blue, green and bright yellows. They really bring out the natural colors in your face and make you feel more peppy.
Even if you're not in a happy mood, try to smile at strangers and throughout your day. There's a lot of lonely people in the world. So just giving a simple smile can brighten someones day. It's free to give and you usually get one back. Smiling releases good endorphins and before long you will feel much brighter too. We all look better when we're smiling.
Here are two of my favorite quotes.
I have no routine. Everyday is a surprise. The time it takes me to look glam is probably around 30 minutes for make-up. My hair is/was naturally curly until my last haircut. The guy cut on the wrong area of the "C" curls. You can sometimes end up with fish hook hair when an idiot cuts your curls. I don't currently have curls anymore, except for my poopsie curls around the perimeter. I haven't really been glam, glam, since before my hairdon't. So I don't know how long Glammy, Glam, Glam, time will take. I'll have to get back with you.
|My Horror Story:||
I have lots of horror stories that will take some serious writing time, which I don't have at the moment. Let me leave you with a few subjects to ponder.
Laser Hair Removal
Okay, go ponder over a cocktail and I'll be back asap!
|My Celebrity Look-a-like:||
I'm mostly told Linda Carter aka "Wonder Woman"
Delta Burke aka Suzanne Sugarbaker from "Designing Women"
Fran Drescher aka Frannie Fine from "The Nanny" I loved that show I even have a little Fran collection with a talking Fran doll. Love it & her!!! We dressed a lot alike at the time and we had the same hair, except my voice is tiny. No nasal.
Snow White aka Cartoon Character Our voices sound very similar. (Tiny like a five year old)
I LOVE "Merle Norman Waterproof Black Eyeliner". I've worn it since the first time I ever started wearing make-up, which was 9th or 10th grade. I'll have to look at my school pictures, but I think it was 9th. Not that one year makes a difference, but I like to be precise. That's decades of true devotion. It doesn't smudge or run & you can leave it on for days & it still looks fresh. You can swim, shower, be in a hurricane & still not look like a raccoon. I love that it's a wood pencil, so you can get a nice sharp point. It goes on so smooth and very easy to blend. Merle has a great selection of colors. I feel I can be on a first name basis since we've been together for so many years.I have worn the dark brown, dark navy, dark forest green & dark burgundy, I use the burgundy as a lip-liner too. Those are the colors I've worn, not sure of the names they use for those colors. I'm too lazy to get up & look. I will tell you that the current black eyeliner color is called "Blackout". I only know that because it's sitting here. It goes by the name "Merle Norman Soft Touch Eye Pencil". It doesn't say waterproof on the pencil, but it is. There's an eyeliner blender at the other end that's handy-dandy. I just read on the pencil that they are made in Germany & distributed in Los Angeles. (little trivia) I did become very upset with Merle several years ago when he/she changed the wooden pencil to the kind that doesn't sharpen. My sister & I bought all the wooden pencils they had left in the store. Apparently, they must have had A LOT of complaints, because they brought the original back & kept the new one too. I was sooooo happy when I heard the fabulous news! The cost is $17, but worth it, because it lasts forever!!!
This is one of my very favorite products.
I have been wearing "L'Oreal Voluminous" mascara (waterproof) since age 30. (almost 12 years) I love it!!!
I first discovered it when I saw the most perfect eyelashes I've ever seen. I was taking a public speaking class & everyone in this class were amazed by "Little Jenny's" lashes. We all called her "Little Jenny", because she was soooo tiny you could put her in your pocket. Seriously, ya could, if you didn't have pockets, you could use your purse & later put her on your shelf as a knick-knack.
Anyway, I bought a tube right after class & I've been wearing it ever since. It only takes one coat for me, doesn't clump & your lashes look fabulous! L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara only cost around $7.00 at Ulta.
"Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E". I can't live without this. I always keep two tubes on hand, one for my purse and one for my vanity. I buy it in the .5 oz. swivel stick. It's not a sad chapstick size. It's solid and you apply it like a lip balm. It goes on smooth like butter, it lasts, is very moisturizing and healing. I always wear it under my lipstick.
I discovered Palmer's Cocoa Butter after I stopped dating a complete idiot that had whiskers like pine needles. My lips and the skin around my mouth always had carpet burn, it was dry, red and peeling. I bought a stick at Walgreen's & it did the trick. I've been devoted to this product since 2002. It can be used for the following: marks, blemishes, rough, dry skin and it soothes chapped lips. I like to use it on the corners of my eyes at night. I'll be 42 in October & have no crows feet.I highly recommend it!
