Friends. Family. Following. World. Today is a big day. Today I went to Target to pick up my birth control after work. This is big because I actually remembered on time and didn't have to make Josh do it. Next, I still had one refill which I wasn't sure if I had or not...so that was very good.
This is the GREAT part.... Yaz now comes in a generic brand!!!! Do you know what that means? Do you? That means that I now pay $8.00 per month instead of $40.00 per month!!! O.M.G. That's $96 per year instead of $480 per year!
I was so excited I bought new lipgloss and mascara AND my favorite beer...Negra Modela. Okay, so I had picked those things out before I knew about the change, but now I could buy them guilt free!
Now, you ask, why would I want some lipgloss and mascara? Well, besides the fact that it's waaaaay past time for me to get some...I would like to improve my professional appearance. It's easier, I think, for me to look professional than for me to talk and act professional. Plus if I look the part, then maybe I can get away with mistakes in my acting the part. I even got a coupon for a haircutter and I asked the woman where I got the coupon if the haircutter is good or not. She says she doesn't know, but she's going to try her...she also says the haircutter woman is a creative person. That's exactly what I need...creative. I want a more professional haircut than my long "immature" one I have now. It's long and straight and I have bangs. I was going for that look...the natural one...but I don't think it is helping me look older. I think older would help me at my professionalism as well because I am very young and "immature" at work. Finally, to improve my professional appearance, I am going to invest money into three outfits. I may look at Tim Gunn's list of 10 items every woman should own because I trust him more than I trust anyone on TV. He's definitely on my list of favorite famous people.
Here is what Tim says on jeans:
Jeans - Everyone has a pair of jeans, but does everyone have a pair of jeans that make them look great? The wider leg, low-rise jean style has been popular (and still is) but a narrower leg is coming back along with a higher waist, which eliminates the unflattering "muffin top" look.
