Good Day

shad­owkatt and I spent much of our day at Three-13 Spa, Salon & Bou­tique, for both pam­per­ing and legit­i­mate school research (for me).

For the small group com­mu­ni­ca­tions class project, the girl took many cool pic­tures. I inter­viewed four peo­ple. One more vis­it should be plen­ty, but we have to man­age to get all four team mem­bers there at the same time. That’s prov­ing difficult.

Then there was the pam­per­ing. The girl got her hair cut and had an instruc­tion­al make­up ses­sion, some­thing she’d want­ed to do. I had my hair col­ored back to my nat­ur­al col­or (dark brown with red high­lights) and cut. This cut is longer in front than I’ve had for a while, but short­er in back.

Then we went off and spent obscene amounts of mon­ey equip­ping the girl with make-up and acces­sories (brush­es, a bag to put it all in, sponges, etc.) This was all part of a Yule present, which is why she was­n’t buy­ing her own make­up. She got “nor­mal” stuff as well as some very strik­ing col­ors for, um, play­ing dress-up? Though I don’t think teens call it that.

I want­ed her to know how to use the stuff with­out look­ing like a Mary Kay Com­man­do, and to have some­thing at least decent. I think we suc­ceed­ed. She’s unlike­ly to wear war paint on a dai­ly basis, but it’s good to know how to do it.

I’m hav­ing a bit of trou­ble look­ing at her, though. She looks so grown up! Some­how, see­ing her in “nor­mal” make­up is even more jar­ring than see­ing her all gussied up for a spe­cial occa­sion.

I do believe we may go get man­i­cures & pedi­cures togeth­er next week.
