When the testosterone gets too deep in my home, I flee to recharge my estrogen batteries.
I'm posting from sunny Palm Desert, Cal-if-orn-I-A!!!
My college roommates, Amanda and Carrie, and I have met on our annual girls' weekend for many years now. We usually meet up in one of our homes once a year for a weekend, but occasionally, we impose on Amanda's parents in Palm Desert and plant ourselves in the sunshine and hot tub
until margaritas run out for hours on end.
We've had lazy mornings with coffee in the sunshine.
With views like these, it is hard to miss home!
Colors... the girls have been trying for years to get me to get a professional color analysis.
From the fashion gurus themselves, knowing what colors look good with your hair, skin and eye color combination makes a difference in how you look and ultimately saves you money because you don't buy anything that doesn't look good on you.
Amanda had this done several years ago. Carrie had it done last time we were here (two years ago) and they finally talked me into it this year. It's not a small investment and I was reluctant because I'm
fashion retarded not stylish to begin with.
This is Andie and apparently, she is the best there is where color is concerned!
She looks through the peep hole of these color samples to determine my skin, hair, and eye color. This is what it looked like from my point of view:
Although Andie was the expert and the final authority, Mrs. Landin, Amanda, and Carrie would each submit a vote as well.
Conclusion: I'm a "True Honey Toned Spring"
Translation: I will be wearing corals, medium blues, brown, off white, and every other color that will arrive next week in my own personalized color palette.
Carrie and Amanda never leave the house without their palettes and they are a force to be reckoned with in any TJ Maxx or Target!
Luckily, my palette will be very similar to Amanda's and she and her mom have a color memory like a steel trap, so we ate lunch at the golf club and then we were off to shopping.
The best part is.... we have two days left!!!
