And I love it.
I grew up as a tomboy. I played soccer and my friends were pretty much guys and I never wore dresses or skirts unless I was attending something formal.
I like to think of myself now as a feminine tomboy. I still love jeans, but I realize my legs look nice in dresses and skirts and I'm addicted to boots and eyeliner makes my eyes pop. (Although, I do digress, unless I'm going out with my friends, I totally forgo makeup. I'm just too darn lazy.)
Remember how I told you about that hockey charity event I'm going to? Well, it's coming up. Like, soon. And I have to be a girl. It's a cocktail party, after all. As such, I ordered my shoes from Target.com (which you can see here) early because I need to break in the shoes and, you know, make sure I can walk in them.
I also bought makeup, and, okay, I totally girled out. I was at Target and was bombarded with cheap but high-end makeup. I bought everything I needed for the night (including three brushes for eyeshadow) for $22. (My shoes were just less that $20.) The makeup is e.l.f. by the way. The website is here if you're interested.
Finally, I found the hairstyle I'm going to attempt.
Last thing I need to get are earrings.
As things start coming together, I'm getting more and more excited. When do I ever get a chance to dress up like some kind of cynical, closet-romantic Cinderella off to a ball filled with hockey players? Um, never.
So I'm going all out, and that means girling out too.
I'll let you know how my progress goes. I am planning on practicing the hairstyle and the makeup before the actual day of the event. You know me; I am a perfectionist after all. But I'm even excited about the practicing.
Because I love being a girl and doing girly things. While still talking about hockey, of course.
