A new hue
Lately, I've been feeling like I'm in a rut. Personally, professionally, health-wise, you name it. I know this happens to all of us. And I know everyone has their own way of trying to get out of said rut. For me, I usually get the urge to change my hair (I wish I got the urge to exercise but unfortunately, no). This explains why the other day I had the crazy thought that maybe-- just maybe-- I should run to the drug store and pick up a box of hair dye. Luckily, my common sense prevailed. Please, if you ever see me with a box of store-bought hair color, you have my full permission to tackle me to the ground. I don't trust myself to not turn my hair some frightening shade of orange (think clown).
Anyway, whenever I am in a rut, I also get the urge to . . . buy a new lipstick! Isn't that so 50s housewife of me? And it is much easier and cheaper than going to the salon. So, the other night, after doing an interview, I popped over to my local CVS. I strolled the makeup aisle for a good 15 minutes, looking for the perfect pick-me-up shade. It was impossible to see what some of the colors looked like through the packaging, but luckily I came away with a winner: Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipcolor in Pink Peony. The name is what got me. The new tube has already found a home amongst my overwhelming stockpile of beauty products. And I took the color for a test drive yesterday. I think it's very spring. But tell me what you think! (Excuse the poor bathroom lighting.)
And tell me too, what do you do to bust out of a rut?
