Losing 3 Pounds
Today I lost 3 pounds....actually, I discarded 3 pounds. When we moved from our brick & mortar 7000+ square foot home into our mobile 300 square foot motorhome, I pared down my "must haves" to a comfortable minumum. However, in my peanut brain, somehow I justified keeping more of the "little stuff" than I needed. That little stuff comes in the form of make-up.
I don't really wear much make-up, just a little eyeliner and mascara, because I have blonde (invisible) eyelashes that need help to be seen. I wear lipstick daily because, it seems to prevent cold sores (which I get occasionally) and very rarely, (special occasions only) I will wear an ever-so-little amount of eyeshadow. I don't use foundation and I don't use blush. (Actually, I used to wear all of it in my youth but that was a long time ago. )
Today, I decided to clean out my make-up stashes and was a little surprised at how much stuff I had. There was junk that was as old as my 30 year old daughter and I haven't put it to my face in over 15 years. What was I thinking? Anyway, here is a picture of my crap, the rancid lipstick, the antique eyshadow, the outdated eyeliners and the mascara that needed a jack hammer to remove it from the tube. Yup, it was close to 3 pounds.
