I wore eye make up yesterday. This is the first time in a very long time that this has happened.
Want to know why it had been so long?
I am lazy when it comes to girly stuff. I have nail polish and rarely use it. Got a flat iron, curling iron, and hot rollers and they’re all dusty.
I didn’t wear eye make up for over a year (at least) because I didn’t have eye make up remover. That’s it. That’s my reason.
I fixed that last weekend and finally got some. And I remembered yesterday why I don’t do much with make up.
I like eye shadow and eye liner, but they don’t return the feelings. I’m not very good at doing my own make up, which might be why I stick with powder and chapstick.
I can barely put eyeliner on straight. Do you ever do your liner, think you did a good job, and then look in the mirror and each eye looks totally different? That’s me. Liquid liner will never have a place in my bathroom because I know – I know – what a mess I will make on my face.
Also. Anytime I have mascara on, it’s a given that I will have to rub my eyes for some reason. Rubbing eyes + mascara = raccoon eyes. That definitely happened yesterday, too.
But I did it. Eye shadow, smudgy liner, mascara.
Maybe I’ll get better with practice? Maybe I just need new make up…
Another thing I’m not normally good at?
Making milkshakes at home.
I always, always, always add too much milk. I promise I don’t try to ruin them on purpose! I can usually fix them if we have more ice cream, but it’s not a good thing when you’ve already used all your ice cream and now you’re left with a thin, milky smoothie when you wanted a thick milkshake.
And here’s where milkshakes and make up are the same for me.
I need to practice.
Probably not at the same time, but milkshakes AND make up are always a good idea.
Serve these up for your holiday meal – they’ll go great with pecan pie.
Also – I kept these family friendly, but they would be insane with some vanilla vodka or bourbon mixed in.
Makes: 1 serving. Multiply for more!
- 1 cup vanilla frozen yogurt
- 1/4 -1/2 cup milk, depending on how thick you like your milkshakes
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 3 gingersnap cookies
- 2 gingersnap cookies, crushed
- Put your frozen yogurt, milk, vanilla, and 3 cookies in a blender. Flip the switch and blend the shake until the cookies are broken down and the shake is thick and creamy.
- Pour the crushed gingersnaps into a shallow dish.
- Dip the edge of your glass into your shake and then dip into the crushed gingersnaps.
- Carefully pour the shake into your glass.
