Try something new... Be daring!!!

As I sit here at my daughters dental appointment, I am blogging and watching her at the same time.  But I started think about how I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried two new trends this week.  

The first one being red lipstick.  Everyone, and I mean everyone that knows me, knows that I am a "beach bronze" Mary Kay gloss loving gal!!  I haven't put anything else on my lips for the past two almost three years!  This gloss has been so good to me, wearing it for casual days and dressing up for a night out.  But I love the look of red lipstick on celebs, like Rihanna, BeyoncĂ©, even JLO!  The key is finding the right shade of red for you!  So....I went to the Mac counter at Nordstrom and explained my dilemma to the girls and they found the perfect red for me!  I freaked out when I first saw, because like I said before I have not had a color that vivid on my lips since high school and it didn't look good then!  I really had to adjust to the new look, and it is a new look, even my daughter thought it made me look different but in a good way!  When I got home I asked my always honest ( maybe too honest, sometimes) hubby what he thought about the new color.  He loved it, not on his face but he loved it!  So I will definitely be trying this red out a few times to spice up my look from time to time!!

My second step out of my norm are these fabulous leopard print sunglasses I scored at Zumiez, while shopping with my 16 year old son!  If you all remember a couple of years back, I blogged about sunglasses and how to purchase the right ones for your face shape.  Since My face is an oval shape, skies the limit on the different shapes and sizes I can wear. I tried them on and I loved them right away!!  And my son thought I looked cool, so I guess that's a plus..:0).  But the main thing here is that you love them, despite what anyone else says.  It you don't feel comfortable, it shows and that's not a good look on anybody!  These sunglasses are chic and I love the edgy look they add to my outfit!  

Don't be afraid to try new things!!  You never know, it may look fabulous!!!
