With this week having been the release of two vampire films, one on dvd the other in cinemas, I've spent a fair bit of time working on my vampire blog. Which, I'm sure after next week will be a quiet place again for who knows how long.
With that said, I decided to turn going to the movie - I went to see the remake of Fright Night- alone, into a "date".
I go to the movies by myself all the time, so there is nothing radical about that part. But I never bother to get pretty. I normally just roll out of bed catch the first bus and slump into the cinema, hiding in the dark.
Yesterday, I decided to make an event of it. That included doing my nails - new colour called Grey's Anatomy- hair and make-up -black shadow, a light pink and a silver which mimicked the nail colour-, picking out an outfit - this great grey-lavander wrinkle top from Smart Set- and making sure my iPod was fired up with tunes from past vampire soundtracks. Anything that made me feel powerful, sexy and just upbeat.
There was a time when I used to spend hours every day getting ready to go out. And I do mean hours. Not anymore. If it takes me more then five minutes to do my hair and make-up, I just don't bother.
The movie was fabulous and even though because of the heat, I ended having to change my top for a planer tee, I still felt sexy.
Yes I screwed up on the day. The link says 134 but I spotted my mistake and changed the title to 133
