To Each His Own....

I've heard it said many times....
To Each His Own!!

{To Each His Own = One has a right to one's personal preferences}

Are you fashionable?  Do you like to keep up with all of the latest FASHIONS?  Or you a trend chaser?   

Earlier this week, I described my simple way of life.   I like to be comfy....BUT... I do know how to dress for any occasion!!

My husband always seems to be proud of how I look....and I believe that it is important, for me to look good for him and for me!

It is way too cold to be outside, looking for things to photograph and topics to blog about.   So, for this thoughts may be a bit random!!

How many of you like SPIDERS?  Not me!!!  I've been bit by a Brown Recluse...twice....and I can tell you right now...I Don't like spiders!!

You are probably thinking....what do spiders and fashion have in common????   And this brings me to my topic of conversation for today!!  Why this topic today?

Because it was just yesterday that I was visiting with a lady...and I honestly could not keep my mind on our conversation.  Her eyelashes were about an {inch} long and that was all I could focus on!!  LOL...

Thick....long... eyelashes are now a big trend.  It has even been said that "mascara is a girls new best friend."

Clumpy....spider like...lashes are the {IN} thing.  Forget the eyes...the focus is on the lashes!!

While I'm not one that enjoys wearing a lot of mascara....I'm certainly not one for having spider legs surrounding my eyes. 

 {Most of the time...I forget to apply any mascara to my eyes......}

I'm not being critical....and as the saying goes...TO EACH HIS OWN...   I just think that too much is too much! For me anyways!! 

I do apply makeup daily....but I prefer the more natural look.  A little bit of eye shadow....some eye liner....a small dry brushing of mascara....a little base...and some blush.  A lip liner and a soft grapefruit colored lip gloss!!  That is it for me!!!

Aside from the fact that I'm really not big on the feathered eye lash look.....I do believe that the heaviness on my eyelids, would drive me crazy!  

I like to blink...and I sure don't need anything blurring my vision. 

This fad will just have to pass me by!  

To each his own!!  

It is Cold outside and we have a small chance of Winter precipitation!

I would probably reach up and rub my eye and make a mess! lol I don't wear eye make up at all any more. But I ALWAYS wear concealer and mineral make up all over. I like feeling ready to walk out the door at any time. Enjoy your weekend sweet friend! Hugs!

Warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. I have never even seen a brown recluse spider but I have seen enough to know that I am not very fond of them.

I do not like the heavy mascara either.Actually,I wear make-up every day,like you,but I do not use mascara at all.That too is a personal preference.

I will confess... when I was in my 20s, I probably would have thought it was a fun idea. LOL! Not now!!! ;) blessings ~ tanna

When I was a teenager, it took me two hours to apply my makeup to go to work...and all to just look natural!! I would never be seen without it. Now I have not worn ANY makeup for at least 25 years. I am just too busy and it is too much time and money. Maybe some lipstick for an event. Nail polish I love, sparkly and bright colors of all kinds! I have always preferred makeup that makes you look very pretty, and like you are not wearing any! Remember Tammy Faye Baker and her famous eyelashes, yikes! I know there are Brown Recluses in Texas. Where were they? I have arachnophobia and am terrified of spiders!!!

I am with long spider (yuck!..spiders that is) eye lashes. I just heard on the news last night your eye lashes are meant to keep dirt etc. off your eyes. And these big lashes are leaving your eyes unprotected.
