Next To The Beauty Queen

Happy Monday friendlies!  I hope everyone had a good weekend.  Ours was pretty decent, though we were all a bit under the weather.  

My cold from early last week turned into a sinus infection.  My sinus headache brought me to tears Friday night after dinner.  Thank goodness for the Z-Pack I found stashed in the back of the medicine cabinet.  I'm feeling much, much better.  

On Saturday, I attended the Giorgio Armani make-up event at the Cos Bar.  This is Tim.  He's a fabulous celebrity make-up artist and is evidently a big deal.  He did Hilary Swank's make-up last week.  He gave me a fierce smoky eye.  I'm pretty much a celebrity now, right?

Let's see if I can recreate Tim's masterpiece at home with the products I bought....

The make-up event couldn't have come at a more perfect time since we had my friend, Kristen's, Mrs. South Carolina Pageant to attend Saturday night.

She looked stunning and did an amazing job up there on stage in front of everyone.  She has a body that will make you hate her just a little bit despite her sweet personality.  She came home with 4 awards, including the "Best Opening Number", "Best Dancer", "Most Beautiful", and "People's Choice Award."  Though she was second runner up, she was definitely the queen in our eyes!

*The boots are similar to my old Cole Haan version that I wore.

There's nothing like seeing yourself in a photo next to a beauty queen to jump start a diet!  

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because I took Baby Girl to the doctor this morning.  She's very sick.  Her cold settled in her lungs.  She is on an antibiotic, oral steroid, and nebulizer treatments every 4 hours.  I hope she feels better soon.  She's breaking my heart.
