Yesterday I was feeling anxious and restless, so after occupying myself for a while I decided to try something new. I’ve never been a girly girl, often living in sweats and hoodies and generally having the fashion sense of a teenage boy, but I like occasionally taking the time to do my hair, put make up on and make an effort to look at my best.
I’ve recently found a number of YouTube videos from various beauty bloggers that give brilliant tutorials on applying striking make up, so I thought I would give one of them a go. To my surprise, it worked and when I had finished I was really pleased with the results.
Unfortunately, I had made the decision to do just one eye so I could see the difference. Being the scatterbrained idiot that I am, I forgot that I had done it and promptly decided to go to the shops to get a few things that The Bloke and I needed. Consequently, I unwittingly wandered around my local supermarket blissfully unaware that I was looking like I was re-enacting a scene from Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange.
It was only when I got home and caught sight of myself in the mirror that I realised what had happened, and found it so amusing that I had to ring The Bloke and tell him what I had done.
And this, my friends, is why I shouldn’t try new things…
What about you guys? Have you ever done anything that made you look ridiculous?
