My Valentine's Day Makeup Look and Outfit

So I must be honest in saying I don't really care for VD. To me it's just another day, but it's nice to use it as a reason to celebrate your relationships with the people you love. We never go all out for it.
My husband says it's a "chick Holiday" meant for dudes to buy stuff for their gals and treat them a little more than usual. I guess. *shrugs*

So my husband took me out to an Indian place (again, hee hee!), which had bellydancers for entertainment. I didn't know they would have any so it was a nice little surprise. Too bad I didn't take my camera, I'd be able to show you!

Here's what I wore:
 I LOVE this dress, but I hate that it's too tight on my arms. Dang muscles!

 Athan tried to walk by me and I couldn't resist scooping him up to pose with me.

 "Jeez, Mom! You're embarrassing me!"  My cats are my furry children. :-D

 This was my makeup look EVERY day in high school. Black winged liner and dark red or plum lipstick was my signature.

LOVE this flower. :-)

And...in case you didn't notice, I'm wearing nail polish! I just started wearing it recently after about 8 years of not wearing it.
It's a base coat, 2 coats of Avon Golden Wine and a top coat. Love red polish!

Hope you had a great VD!

    I hate clothes that are too tight on the arms. Makes me feel like I'm in a straight-jacket.

  6. I think the best thing I ever heard about VDay was "all I really hope for is some chocolate and maybe some good Thai food." It's one of the few occasions where we treat ourselves to an extra-fancy dinner.

    What lipstick is that? Please tell me it's Morgana!

    CarmenSays,
    People told me that in high school but I don't really see it.

    Skulda,
    He is a good little guy. :-) Ugh...yeah my arms felt like sausage packed into tubes! Not a great feeling...

    Emily,
    So true! the lipstick is Avon Flambe. :-)

    Miss Krimson,
    No, the flower is fake. You can get it here: http://www.hairflowers.net/products/Dark-Pink-Orchid-Hair-Flower-Clip.html

    Leena,
    Just because I'm skinny that doesn't mean I starve myself. I DO eat very healthy and exercise regularly, which is why I have a small build. I have to eat quite a bit to keep up with my activity and I'm small because of my activity. :-D
    So don't worry about my size. I'm a healthy gal! Thank you! :-)
