Happy face, happy wallet, Happy FRIDAY

I'll give you time to dust off the confetti from celebrating that it is Friday! YAY, WOOHOO. Why is it that the weekends fly by but the weekdays drag? Don't get me wrong, every day is a good day to wake up (unless you stub your toe against the bed post when you are sluggishly walking towards the bathroom), but Fridays are always sweeter because you know that you can have some "you" time in the next two days. I even felt this way when I had to work Saturdays; I think the middle school excitement still lingers.

Anywhoo, I frequently (and when I mean "frequently," I really mean every hour on the hour) visit a wonderful website, (the link is on the sidebar). Marlena, the star behind Makeup Geek, provides excellent tutorials, swatches, tip and tricks, and Looks of the Week. The Look of the Week just recently started, but I think it is will definitely take off. The inspirations motivate her audience to try something new if they have not. Well, yesterday after work, and while the turkey was in the oven, I decided to try this week's look. It was definitely something I would not have created myself, but I had great fun doing it.

In fact, I was so inspired by the look that afterwards I even lightened my hair to a copper, burnt red (it was dark brown). I felt pretty bad ass.

So this weekend, I challenge you to try your hand at any bad ass look. When you find that look, ROCK IT like it's your job. After all, weekends are for letting loose.

Wishing you a happy face, and an even happier wallet
