Doesn't she feel lovely...

Last week while I was grocery shopping in WalMart, I noticed a lady standing there staring at me...a few moments later, since she was still staring, I quirked my eyebrows inquisitively and glanced at her, at which point she exclaimed that I had beautiful skin and asked what I use on my face...

Long story short, she was a Mary Kay consultant and she asked me to come to their reps/sales directors meeting to model their new line of stuff. Although activities away from my family in the evening is about the last thing in the world that appeals to me, this was a rather unique situation and what girl wouldn't love to "be a model" at some point in her life?!

So last night I went (don't worry, I am NOT a Mary Kay consultant, so I will not be trying to sell to all of you!) and I had a nice time. I must admit to really liking their skin care line -- I am thirty and starting to get fine lines around my eyes, so it's time to step up the skin care, don't you know! -- I think some of the ladies about had cardiac arrest when they heard that I just use Dove soap to wash my face!

So...now I've gotten to play model for a night...and my conclusion is that, although it was lots of fun, I still prefer to be home on the couch with my family, so I won't be taking off dreamily to pursue a big modeling contract anytime soon. :-)

That must feel great to be asked by a perfect stranger to model well... anything. So what did you get from Mary Kay? Products?

Yes, I must admit that it felt very nice! I got some free gifts (a silver bracelet, some makeup samples, a pretty little makeup bag), the fun of the 'makeover', and then my choice of 10% off an order or a free product. It was fun!

Where did you get that shirt? That would look terrific on Becca!
