What a week

My prayers go out to those involved in the Orlando shooting.

Been busy doing building work on the house again, putting banister around the deck, just need a rocking chair, whiskey and my guitar and it will be perfect.

So my last post, I mentioned seeing a lady about make up, during our chat a couple of weekends ago, she fell when she walked into a display and I caught her before she hit the ground. Last weekend while in boy mode I visited her (with a box of chocolates) and saw her bruising, I got a big hug for my concern over her.
She mentioned women's skin doesn't darken like men's and recommended a "Thin Lizzy" concealer.
Today I applied it all over my face loved the results both as to hiding my beard and also giving me a constant colour on my face.

Today I just had a morning coffee at the mall as I've only a boring day of nothingness planned. 

I did however try on a few different outfits, (being women's shop, I had to use the ladies change area as they don't have a men's changing area) and actually bought a new long grey jumper. Everyone I spoke to left me feeling great, some enquiring about my day, some complimenting my looks, including the guy walking past in the photo.
Sunday Morning - party last night again with stereo off at 3.30 am and strangers crashing to sleep around 4.30.
I woke, as usual at 6.30 am and staggered out the house with my new jumper and a bit of a "don't care" attitude - no make up, no wig for a morning wake up coffee at 7 am and read my book for a couple of hours to return home once people should be waking up.

You look good Rachel! You have a similar complexion to me going by your photos. Out of curiosity, what shade of Thin Lizzy did you select?

Kind Regards

Pacific Sun. I was tempted to add a darker blush over it, but remembered the make up ladys words about how women don't darken like guys, so just left it at that. I applied it over my moisturizer before it fully sunk in to help is spread a bit more and applied it with my foundation brush
