People will stare.

 

People will stare.  Make it worth their while. Terrific advice...don't you think?

It takes just as much effort to look like a slob as it does to look presentable.  If your hair isn't washed, put on a cute chapeau.  If you don't feel like fixing your face (not that it needs to be fixed but it's such a quaint expression) a swipe of powder and a tinted lip balm will take you from Wintery washed out to polished in under one minute.  A long coat hides a multitude of sins (even jammies tucked into tall boots for a midnight run to the drug store - trust me on this one). 

It has been another whirlwind few weeks - meetings for every committee under the sun, lobster dinner, business excellence, civic awards, young professionals, politics etc.  Oh and on top of that I have Royal Ribbons to run and business is pouring in...so I'm hopping all day long.  Not to mention my little part time job - I got a message last night to come to work on Saturday morning.  Good thing I have a wardrobe ready to take me anywhere!

I discovered one of the moms from the Little Prince's school just got her yoga certification so I took her very first class last night.  I am thrilled to have yoga in town again! 

I took the Danish exchange student to a community dinner that is put on by the poverty coalition.  It started at the seedy hotel and was frequented by welfare types and drug addicts but the guy in charge has done a tremendous job of building it up, getting people the help they need, and cleaning up the hotel.  Now the dinner is open for anyone to come so we stopped in, had a bite to eat, chatted with some people and helped clean up. The Cheeky Reaper and I are hosting a fundraiser for this group - we have 150 tickets to sell to a movie screening and champagne reception so it was nice to spend time with the people we are doing it for and some of the people on their board of directors. 

I am getting my hair cut this afternoon.  I've been letting it grow out a bit over the winter but I think I will cut it back to summer length again.  I just don't have the time or inclination to blow it out every single day.  Stay tuned to find out how it went with my stylist!

Comments keep bloggers inspired...please take the time to say hello!

I love that quote and yes long coat are the bees knees, worn with boots no one need ever know what sins lurk below!

I am really trying to make more of an effort with my appearance lately.

Congratulations on your booming business. That is great news!

You are a busy little bee! I agree that everyone should try to make themselves presentable when going out in public. My sweet Mama has always made herself presentable before leaving her bedroom.
