Feeling Green (and Blue)

Posted by writergrll. Comment (0).

They say that the only thing constant is change.  And I wholeheartedly believe that.  But, it doesn’t mean that change is any easier to deal with!  In fact, I think that it may be one of the hardest.  My schedule/routine has been disrupted for the past few weeks because of different factors and it will be different for the next few weeks, too.  My schedule probably won’t “even out” until the Fall semester starts in three weeks!

Just like the constant rocking, tilting, and rolling of a boat can make one seasick, the constant change in my routine is making me queasy.  I’m finding that my balance has shifted to spending most of my time doing the things that don’t bring me much joy.  I just have to keep telling myself that things like work are necessary evils in my life.  Working and earning money is what allows me the time and means to do the things that I enjoy—blog, youtube, shop, spend time with family and friends, etc.

I was fortunate enough to be able to have a date night with my favorite man last Thursday.  We saw a commercial for folded ravioli at Macaroni Grille earlier in the week and made a plan to go there for dinner and then see the movie Lucy after.  I’m generally off on Thursdays so it gives me some time to get all dolled up for our dates!  This past Thursday, I decided to go with dark wash jeans, a sparkly silver top, and accents of dark green.  I also went with dramatic green eye makeup with lots of black liner and mascara.  Since I am required to wear my hair up for work, I relish the opportunity to wear it down and show off how long it’s gotten over the past few years!

Green cardigan: Target. Silver sparkly tanktop: JCP. Green statement earrings: Versona. Silver watch: Fossil. Pandora bracelet: gifts. Dark denim jeans: JCP. Silver mary janes: Shoe Carnival.

I love the way that the whole outfit came together. And, here are the details on my makeup look:

As always, thanks for reading (and watching, hopefully.) I enjoy blogging and miss it when I have to push it to the side for other activities.
