I Got My Red Dress On Tonight…

It’s been a while since I have posted anything on here! I’m sorry for the absence, but I had been busy in transition with a new job at a non-profit, plus juggling a 2-year and my dating life. Hang on tight, this post might get a little personal. And in a ways, this post may be a means to let go of the last person I dated.

The past seven months, I toyed with the idea of putting myself back on the market. It happened. It was fun for a while, but it has become increasingly fatiguing. There were two men who I thought had potential in an everlasting relationship. Looking back, it was really just the one – and gathering more of my thoughts, perhaps there wasn’t even the one.

After a slew of dates, I met the first man who I thought could be a potential boyfriend, it was quite fun. He enjoyed the chase and I enjoyed being chased. There were definitely some odd coincidences with the first one – for starters, we met on eHarmony, his name is the same as my son’s, and he lives two blocks away from me. Wow. He was definitely a charmer and we dated for two months. After all that was said towards the end, I moved on with quick ease. I believe, I was over him in two days or less – I was mostly angry.

After him, I went on Match. I met two men before meeting one other person who, I felt, was pretty fantastic personality-wise – with some exceptions I care not to go into. At any rate – it lasted one month. And on an odd Sunday afternoon, he called me, played “Summertime Sadness” by Lana Del Ray, and hung up without saying a word. There were many reasons that I am having a hard time overcoming this one-month dating experience with him. Perhaps there were a lot of guilt and bad timing. However, it resulted in inspiration.

I grabbed a friend and his camera, went to a winery, and took photographs of me in a red dress that I had purchased three years ago. The tag was still on it.

A Beauty Question

Hi, I am Angela from Your Beauty Whisperer and you can find my blog here.

Does anyone else have the problem in the picture below by mid to late day?036

 

It doesn’t always happen and it’s bizarre I swear I can use the same primer, liner,and mascara and it happens then one day it doesn’t. I do often though use different things every day where the item I am testing is fine with other items and not others. I guess my point is there doesn’t seem to be any rhythm or reason to it.

I thought it might be nice to have a discussion in the comments as to how this can be “fixed” or the causes.

Please check out my blog and I want to say I am thankful for the chance to guest post. I never have before and it is exciting lol!
