Beauty and the TomBoy

Hello and Welcome!  Now… Where to start?

First of all, it’s important to note that I have no idea what I am doing.  I don’t really blog, I haven’t ever been consistent in keeping a journal, and I’m not great with photographs.  I don’t even follow any blogs!  But, I’d love to, so if you have one, please shout at me so I can take a look!

However, I’m very active on social media and have plenty to say, so I decided to give this blog the ole college try.

I suppose we should start with information about myself:  I am 38 years old.  I’ve lived my entire life in jeans and t-shirts and pony tails and ball caps.  I put a little bit of make up on for special occasions and when my Mom hounded me enough about it.  Even then, and even now, I had and have NO idea how to style my own hair beyond scrunching it, straightening it, pony tail and messy bun.  I’ve decided this year that I’d really like to turn that around. Or at least find a happy balance between TomBoy and femininity – before I turn 40.

I have been learning a little more about makeup, and wear it often – with my jeans and t-shirts (fashion is just one more thing I’m beginning to learn more about and attempting to apply).  Also, I’m absolutely obsessed with nail polish and have learned there’s an entire Indy arena in polishland that’s simply amazing, and I haven’t even began to scratch its surface.

So, here’s my vision for this blog:  I want to chronicle my transition.  Along the way, I’ll be reviewing products, posting unboxing blogs, and hauls, documenting my progress – each step I learn: new eye shadow techniques, foundation secrets, style breaches, all of it.

I’ll start with a couple of nail polish blogs, because I have an order placed and a haul planned for later this week, so tune in for those.  There will be other random posts here and there, too.  I have yet to decide on any sort of post schedule, so it will be sporadic until I have one in place.

I’m excited about this journey, and I’m excited to take you with me! Please join me in the comments!  I want to hear from you!

It's never too late! All my life, I've been a tomboy. I put on makeup and dress clothes (something nicer than a Tshirt with my jeans) for special occasions only, so I never actually learned how to use makeup. Everyone take a moment to cringe, now. You good? Good. This blog is about my journey to becoming girly. On a deadline. The way I see it, I have approximately 26 years to catch up on, and I have 2 years to accomplish it. I'll be sharing every step of my journey with you, and reviewing products along the way. So grab a cup of coffee, get comfortable, and enjoy! I hope you learn things. Or comment and teach me things!

  2. I’ll be following your blog. I’ve never really followed, maybe because I’ve not known how to follow one. You’re plans are interesting and I’m always up for learning new skills and ideas.
