For your own safety please think of blackheads as good things.

My birthday was nice in case you were wondering.

I spent the day at a spa called Bradz, which aside from the cheesy name was very nice. I had a facial, brow waxing (got to keep my fuzzy caterpillars under control), manicure, pedicure, hair stuff done, and a makeup application.

Let me warn you ladies out there about facials. When the woman asks "Are you okay with extraction?" JUST SAY NO! I didn't want to seem stupid so I said "sure go ahead" Wrong answer, the correct answer is "Hell no you masochistic freak, please slowly move away from my face." In case you don't know what an extraction is here's something from Sephora to explain:

To use: Prior to using the Complexion Extractor with Lance, steaming the face, or using a hot water compress is strongly recommended to help soften comedones. This will make them much easier to remove.
"When you’re ready to begin the extraction process lay the looped side on top of the blackhead - basically encircling this area with the loop. Apply slow and even pressure lightly until the trapped sebum is forced out of the follicle. Do not continue to attempt the extraction if the trapped sebum is not released easily. Applying too much force can cause infection and scarring.
When piercing a whitehead, wait until the whitehead breaks open, then gently roll the tool over the whitehead. Be sure to disinfect the area when finished and clean your tool off with alcohol or hot water."

So yeah, it hurts. Just say no.

Other than that I enjoyed my day. My hair looked great and once I adjusted to my heavy eye makeup I think I was looking pretty good:

This was the finished product after I changed clothes and was ready to leave:

And the number one reason that I need a full length mirror:

Jason and I went to dinner at a very nice French restaurant called Aquarelle. It is located in a converted house in downtown Austin. Very cute and very very tasty.

I would tell you folks more, but I just realized that I haven't seen last night's Project Runway and if I don't go watch it right now the world will stop spinning and disaster and plague will strike down upon all countries.


  1. Okay. Those smilies your blog thing puts in make me look lame.


  2. I don't think I've ever seen your hair that short, I like it. :) And I'm glad you had a good birthday.

    And yay, Project Runway. :DDD

  3. well you are pretty lame. Sorry, I couldn't resist.
