WANDERING AND WONDERING IN TARGET
Yesterday I ran to Target to grab a couple of things for our upcoming family vacation. Those of you that know me know that I am not exactly an up to date kind of woman. Truly, I am still wearing the same combination of makeup I wore in High School. ...a bit of eyeshadow ( brown,) some mascara and because I am old now, some lipstick. I stick to the basics and never stray very far. So, imagine my surprise when looking for an eyelash curler I spied eyebrow razors. Little teeny, tiny razors just for sculpting the perfect brow line. Huh? I have my flimsy brows waxed when I get my hair done, but I thought shaving them was a "no no", although I admit to doing it once in a while when I get frustrated with tweezers. I found the eyelash curlers and discovered they come with refills now...really?? I think I had my old one for many years ( I am embarrassed to contemplate how many, the term decades comes to mind) and never had it refilled. The world, it is a changin' ladies.
Next...faux toenails??? I admit to the world's ugliest toenails, but in summer I usually just keep them polished with some nondescript polish and hope no one notices. But actually adding pretty nails on top of ugly nails...now there is a concept.
On to the shampoo aisle(s). I have been using up some of the many bottles of shampoo that my MIL had been hoarding, but finally needed shampoo. The variety is staggering and oh so confusing. Remember when it was Breck or Prell? If you decide to just forget about the decision for now, there is even a new version of Pssst. Remember..... the dry shampoo that you sprinkled or sprayed in and then brushed out after it "absorbed" the oil in your hair? It served a very limited purpose and always left your hair a little grayish at the roots!! They say everything old is new again and we see it in the 1970s styles coming back as retro or vintage, but dry shampoo? I am not goin' there.
So, after about a half an hour in the beauty aisles I came home with some new mascara and an eyelash curler. Probably my least expensive trip to Target in years. Time to freshen my looks by painting the ugly toenails for the beginning of sandal season, but don't worry, they will be a nondescript pinky color so as not to draw attention!!
