SPT Post

on tuesday, april 17th: $100.00 'virtual tax refund'

This week's challenge: The tax man has given you $100 and you must spend it on yourself (not your kids, husband, etc.) What would you spend it on?

I thought long and hard about this one. I am embarrassed to admit that most of the ideas that first came to my mind were way over $100. A new pair of Seven for All Mankind jeans, a Kate Spade purse, a day trip to the spa. Oh well, I guess I will have to wait on those. I have decided that with the money I would update my makeup. I am one of those people who once I find something I like, I stick with it forever. I need to get out of my rut.
A couple years ago when we were in Vegas, I was able to get my makeup done by a professional. The makeup artist used Bobbi Brown makeup. I love it! Now granted, she was a professional, and even if I used everything she did, I would not look like that again. But I really did love the products. I have bought some over the years. It is really not any more expensive than Clinque or Estee Lauder. So with $100, I could do a good job updating my look.

I can never do my makeup! Your's looks fabulous. I haven't tried out Bobbi Brown, but I am now addicted to Mac. Ang and I did those makeovers last summer, now I am hooked.

Fun to update your makeup. I had never done on eof those makeoever suntil last summer with Jen and now I'm hooked. I still don't look the way the girl made me look when wshe did it, but hey at least it is better than still using my Cover Girl crap from Wally World.

I haven't ever tried Bobbi Brown, but I use Mac, and it is all expensive...Oh, so worth it.

Great idea!

It would be so easy to spend $100 on makeup and it would be so fun. I picked Seven for all Mankind Jeans for my post! I know more than $100, but they are so what I want right now. So badly that I have trouble keeping want and need seperate.

I should probably spend my $100 on some make-up but then I would need to take a class to learn how to put it on. You look great.

Great choice. Clever. I didn't think of that one! I need an update or make over, just a little something new. I could never have anyone do my eyelashes though. I am very particular. cute photo -ciao, janae

OOh I've always wanted to try Bobbi Brown. The only place around here that sells it is Nordstrom but they are too far of a drive to do during the few precious preschool hours and I try to take Quincy in public as little as possible!

Forget virtual, go update that makeup!

I'm a Mary Kay kinda gal. I do like the products and my girlfriend/representative gives me pretty straight forward critiques on my make-up and skin care. Even still, I feel a little clueless on the best way to do my make-up.

You got your boot off!!!! Hooray! It's the best being able to wear shoes again, huh? I am loving it. Still no running for me either - I think it's going to be a while since my darn foot is still sore - but it's so good to be out of the boot! Happy for you!

I think your make-up and purse idea are fabulous. Count me in! The picture of you is gorgeous! You are a girl after my own heart - I love hats, too. Nothing like putting on a good old ball cap with your hair in a pony tail. Easy, quick, sporty! Love it!

Good idea-I have used the same stuff FOREVER as well-I use Clinique, Mac, Mary Kay, and Maybeline-I know ALOT! I have never tried Bobbi Brown but it looks pretty:) I think I would spend $100 on a massage! I just love them!
