Why Yesterday Was The Greatest Day Ever!

So yesterday was a really lovely day, for several reasons. First of all, I was told that I got the job that I was very much hoping for. I've been lucky enough to work for Estée Lauder, run my own little spa and manage salons over the years. Recently I am thrilled to say I graduated from college (with honors) and received a degree in marketing. I was not sure how I was going to find a job that could incorporate all of those things: skin care, makeup, and business. I think that maybe my new job is going to do just that!

I am not good at math, nor am I musically inclined. I am, however, someone with exceptionally good taste. Ever since I could walk I was running around in my ruffled dresses and patent leather shoes (in 1985 mind you, when most kids were in Lee Jeans and sweatshirts), doing people's hair and makeup, and picking out what I thought they should be wearing. I was often found in party clothes when there was no party going on, applying bananas to my face (to moisturize it, of course) and trying to master the curling iron.

I will demonstrate this fact with a picture of myself at my fourth birthday party, contemplating the gifts before me in my ruffled dress, pink bead necklace, white tights and black patent mary janes.  

I wish that I still had that yellow Care Bear duffle bag. Oh, and ignore the dark hair; I have no idea where that came from... My point is that I truly think that I am meant to be in the business of beauty and making people feel good about themselves, so I am so happy to have a chance to do just that!

The second thing that occurred during the greatest day ever was my good friend showing up to say congrats on the job. She also brought me these cupcakes from Baby Cakes, my most fave cupcake spot. Mmmmm....

She and I went for Starbucks, and when I got home..

the MAC eye brushes that I had been waiting on forever where there! So to conclude, it was a fabulous day, something that I was very much in need of, as I'm sure many of you are as well.

I hope that all of you are having a great week, and thank you to everyone that has congratulated me on the job.
