Up Close

This week has turned into an unplanned Beauty Week here on JKR, so I’m just gonna run with it. But I have a confession…yes it does have to do with the theme of the week. Want to know what it is? I sit in the sink when I’m doing my makeup. I’m not kidding, I’m a complete weirdo. Here’s some proof (warning, I am not wearing any makeup in the following pic.)

Don’t say I didn’t warn you about the no makeup thing. At first Jeff said he thought me sitting in the sink was cute and funny. But maybe it was just early on in the relationship and didn’t want to say anything wrong. Or maybe it’s one reason why one of the nicknames Jeff has for me is Monkey… the other being that I sometimes pick things up with my feet. Wow, I’m realllllly showing my true colors here aren’t I? Love it or leave it I guess.

Ok back to the sink thing. I just need to be super close to the mirror when I’m doing my makeup. And I wake up ridiculously early in the morning and am too lazy to stand while doing my makeup. I’m talking 5 am early. The result is me sitting on the edge of the bathroom counter with my feet in the sink. Don’t judge. I would love to have one of those adorable makeup vanities with a cute little chair, mirror, good lighting, and fun compartments to hold all my makeup. Unfortunately for me, living in a small apartment in the city doesn’t really allow for that type of luxury. So until I can have one of these:

Things We Heart

Lonny Magazine

Things We Heart

6th Street Design School

I’ll be doing this:

Wow I’m really all up in that mirror’s business aren’t I? Please tell me someone else has a crazy weird makeup or morning routine? Surely I’m not the only one.
