Philip’s company Christmas party is coming up in a few weeks (I know, Christmas was three weeks ago, but it’s more of a holiday/the company’s anniversary party), and it’s black tie. The last holiday party that we attended three years ago was at the local arcade/mini golf course, complete with pizza and five arcade tokens for everyone. The next two years they didn’t have a holiday party, so here we are with a major step up, and although I’m super excited to actually have a fancy event to attend, what in the world do I wear?!
I’ve come up with a few options that I’ll probably show you over the next week or so, but while I’m deciding that, I’m also thinking about makeup. I’ve seen a billion fashion bloggers experimenting with red lipstick, and I thought that a black cocktail dress paired with a red lip could be fantastic. So I gave it a test drive today with a dark pink lipstick just for fun (even though I only went to the library and the grocery store). It took all of about fourteen seconds until I had lipstick all over my teeth. I should write a book: “How To Impress Your Husband’s Boss in One Easy Step.”
Probably should save the red lip for another occasion. Valentine’s Day, perhaps?

And speaking of Valentine’s Day, I’m doing a little painting special over at my website. Go check it out — I’d love to do a custom painting for you!
