Well, it’s happened (two weeks ago…). I’ve passed the Quarter Century Mark. Obviously, this has caused major changes in my life, and I am now a functional adult who knows how taxes work and has her retirement plan set up and who even has an organized sock drawer.
…I really have no idea what functional adults are like. Was I even close?
So The Boyfriend surprised me this weekend by …
Taking me to a freaking BED AND BREAKFAST! I’d never been to one before, but this place included sprawling views….
The most gorgeous room with a fireplace…
And of course the best guy who ever lived.
And for the nails? Of course I wanted to do something special to them. I started out with the Birthday Balloons tutorial (see this previous post for the video), and kept the balloons themselves pretty basic. In fact, I probably could have done with some more highlighting or light reflection by adding some more white to it, but oh well.
And what better way to celebrate the giant milestone that is a 25th birthday than with…the number 25? I used my dotting tools (call me weird, but I can get a more precise line with them than with my tiny brushes) to paint the appropriate numbers on my middle and ring fingers. That way, when I bend my fingers over so that you can’t see my thumbs, the 25 seems symmetrical, if that makes any sense.
Either way, I’m willing to bet that good things are in store for Age 25, especially if this kickoff was anything to go by.
Many happy returns,
(P.S. More Star Wars CoverGirl reviews coming soon!!)
