Putting on the Ritz

First of all, I promise I will not torture you with a daily recounting of my "beauty routine." But since I've hit a housewifery stalemate, I've decided to step up my game.

Now, I've been a good girl in that I've been getting up in the morning, getting dressed every day, helping the kids with their lunches and have drastically cut down on my half ass dinners. But that's not enough. I'm not knocking out sewing projects the way I should, the house is still a hot mess and a half and I haven't organized sh*t.

Now, I know you're probably thinking what in the hell does a beauty routine have to do with this.

In a word, everything.

Just putting a wee bit more effort into my days has really helped me to be slightly less of lazy. So if wee effort gets me slight improvement, maybe more effort will get me marked improvement. It can't hurt to try.

And so I tried.

This morning, I pulled out the rollers and got this look. Hawt, right?

Add a little make up and a pretty scarf and you get this:

Then it was time to put on dress.

And finally, let the hair down:

And wouldn't you know it? I actually feel awake and, miracles of miracles, I feel like cleaning something. I've already done the dishes.

Do you need a moment to recover?

I'll just be over here cleaning out the refrigerator.


  1. I believe your huby is proud of you. Happy weekend!

  2. Love the hair! It's so retro. Lovely. :)

  3. Very good and very funny! Love the outfit and hair!
