Neurotic. That’s me.

Ruh roh! I am very, very naughty with this blog, aren’t I? I’m still getting back into the swing of regular updates and trying to overcome a nasty case of ‘blog nerves’. Do you have that? I do!

I get all caught up in ‘what to write about’, ‘is it interesting enough?’, ‘what can I write that is fun’…and then that turns into a complete case of blog posting anxiety. And then I write absolutely nothing. Silly. Self-defeating. Boring! So instead of trying to think of what I want to focus on in this blog, I shall just write about daily things and whatever comes to mind.

Currently in my mind, is makeup. Well, not literally as that would be bad…and sticky! But I am fretting a teensy bit about how to do makeup for a formal, evening function that we are going to very soon. Makeup for me (when I actually wear any) is simply foundation, blush and maybe a bit of pencil eyeliner. I have no clue about how to do fancy smokey eyeshadow or whether or not to use a primer, or what lipstick shades I should wear etc.

And if makeup fretting isn’t enough, there is the whole issue of strapless bras *gasp* and buying and then wearing my first pair of high heels in a very long time. Possibly since my year 12 formal. Which was about eighteen years ago….wait, what? 18 years ago? Far out, brussel sprout!

I am a failure (not that I really think so) in the area of shoes, at least compared to the *average* woman. Unlike most women, I own maybe four or five pairs of shoes. Six including my new heels. Very small heels – a kitten heel, I think it is called? I am planning on wear my new shoes around the house tomorrow in a desperate attempt to be able to walk in them gracefully. Or at least, without falling over and displaying my knickers to all and sundry!

And then we come to the strapless bra. Who invented those?! Why are they still so bad at holding things in the correct place?! We can put men on the moon but we cannot invent a comfortable strapless bra. Sheesh. I am going to cave in to fear of a wardrobe malfunction and buy some of these diamonte bra straps. It is that or the clear ones. I figure diamonte straps look more classy. More noice!

Anyhoo, being one of us women who have more voluptuous hips and busts, I was more than a little worried about whether I would find a suitable dress. I was very happy to find City Chic who cater to sizes 14+. I found a gorgeous dress and I am looking forward to wearing it. I’ve never owned such a pretty, fancy dress before so I am quite excited! I will try and take a photo of my shoes tomorrow, too. And! And, at City Chic, my size is a SMALL! Wow! That is a first! hehe


My dress. Isn’t she pretty? I hope I look half as good in it!
