Comments and Makeup

First off, oops.

I’m a bit of a blogging moron at times. I still don’t 100% know how to navigate all things blog. To prove it to you, a huge I’m sorry to all those nice readers who have been commenting and not seeing their comments posted. Apparently, a lot of my comments were being routed to my spam section. They should all be up now. Thank you for your insights – I love comments and they are always appreciated.

Second, girls I need your advice.

I have the most delicate eyes ever. My eye doctor, a doctor who I have been seeing since I was 6 months old and who is world renown in his field, told me I have some of the most sensitive cornea he has ever seen. Sexy, right?

So besides the fact that my eyes get irritated and infection all too often, I also have a huge problem with makeup. I used to love eyeliner, but that is totally out of the question nowadays. However, lately I have been having trouble wearing any eye shadow or mascara. Even worse, my eyes seemed to be reacting to my foundation, too, which seems ridiculous since I do not put foundation on my eye lids. So what’s a girl to do?

My solution so far has been to just wear bronzer and blush daily – which my eyes seem to approve of – and then on special occasions risk it with the eye shadow and mascara. However, I really miss the fun of putting on makeup. Also, I’m leaving for the cruise at the end of this month (squee!), and I would really like to get glammed up at night.

My question to you: Any recommendations for super sensitive makeup? If not, any suggestions for who to go to for recommendations? If neither, any ideas how to feel glam sans make up? Thanks ladies (or er, knowledgeable gentlemen)!

Oh happy day

April has not only brought lots of showers (let’s hope for lots of May flowers!), but it’s also brought with it a lot of stress-inducing events. I seemed to have stumbled into a run of mishaps and little annoyances that were really starting to take their toll. But yesterday, my April began to turn around. Yesterday was a great day. Why was yesterday so happy? Let me bullet-point it for you (because to me, a good list is happy):

  • Work was very productive. I enjoy a day where I keep busy and achieve my work-day goals.
  • It was supposed to rain all day, but the afternoon was warm and sunny. I got to venture outside for lunch without my winter jacket.
  • Hadley went to the groomer. I dropped him off before work and picked him up afterwards. The groomer said he did so well hanging out with her all day that from now on she’s going to charge us less because he is such a pleasure. Also, Hadley doesn’t smell like wet dog anymore.
  • I weighed myself for the first time in a month, so I could know how much weight I have to lose to reach my cruise-time goal. I lost a pound in March will aiming to maintain my current weight, so this was a happy surprise.
  • My run on the treadmill yesterday was a great one. I had lots of energy and my two miler felt good. I was able to rock out a sub-8 minute mile for my second mile, and I could have gone faster if I knew I would have so much left at the end. It feels good to be getting back into a running groove.
  • Chris got out of work before midnight!!! In fact he got out of work in time for a late dinner. This only happens once in a while, since he is mid trial and is absolutely slammed at work. We went out to dinner at a local pub-style restaurant where we kicked back, enjoyed a beer, and I polished off a delicious ahi tuna salad.
  • We caught up on bad TV together. Nothing is more fun that watching truly bad TV with the man you love.

Let’s hope April is now on the up and up!
