Re: DOES THIS HAPPEN TO ANYONE BUT ME?

LOL - It happens to all of us!

And the funniest thing is that I end up feeling like an absolute derelict, that my hair and clothing is a wreck, and then I'll go off to the ladies' room to brush out my hair -

And I look fine, or at least better than I thought I did!

Re: DOES THIS HAPPEN TO ANYONE BUT ME?

@Pink123  My dear niece was up on the arm of a chair reaching something on top of a bookcase.  She turned around, right into the blade of the ceiling fan.  It hit right across her nose, giving her two black eyes and a swollen nose.  Also earlier in the day, she broke out with a large pimple.  Thankfully, the fan did not hit her eye!

 

The tragic thing?  She was getting married the next day!!!

 

Needless to say, we were icing her "face" and pushing down the arnica.  She had a whopping headache to boot.

 

Looking at the wedding pictures, you would never be able to tell.  We kept telling her she would laugh about it someday......

 

I am sorry the preparations for your outing didn't go well.  It has happened to the best of us at one time or another.  I am sure you looked fine.   

Fear not Brothers and Sisters! I have read THE BOOK..........we win!!!

OMG I had to laugh at some of these stories! Only because it’s happened to me so many times and I felt like yelling to the universe, “c’mon!!” I also have days where hair and makeup turn out great and of course I have nowhere to go!

I had my hair done at a salon for my wedding.  Came home, ripped it out, washed and restyled it.

If you are concerned about eyelash glue getting in your eyes, try applying the glue directly to your lash line vs on the lashes.  That might be a way of getting comfortable with them.  I've gotten glue in my eyes before and it stung for about 2 seconds.

@monicakm  No, no old boyfriends just my boyfriend and his family thank goodness.

 

But it always happens time and time again when you want to look great it doesn't work out that well. As a matter of fact I think it's happened all my life.  

 

Yep, I've been wearing lashes for many years.  Very small. Ardell demi pixies 102 for so many years.  But last Sunday the glue shot on my hands somehow which I transferred to my eye. It just got sticky for some reason - transfer.   And I'm a pro. lol.

 

It's Murphy's law I tell you.  Best of luck with your knee surgery.

God bless.

And I have a better one on clothing.  You think a jacket, blazer, whatever is pristine clean and plan to wear.  Your ready and voila you find a little stain on the jacket in a noticeable area.  What?..... and now need to change your outfit.  oh boy....Woman LOL

Yes, been there too.  I don't wash my clothes each time I wear them.  I look for spots, hang them in the bathroom and spray them with Fabreez Fabric Refresher and pull out any wrinkles.  Every now and then a spot gets past me and oh well, have to make a new choice in what to wear.

Re: DOES THIS HAPPEN TO ANYONE BUT ME?

I've found when I really want to impress & take hours to figure everything out, you're right, it usually doesn't go well.  When I don't care & just throw everything together without thinking about it, it comes out best.  So I don't try too hard anymore.

i would never get my hair done for a special occasion, only because I never like the way my hair looks when they are done.   I have hair hair stylists through multiple moves to different states and it's always the same issue.  I love the haircut I receive, but hate the way my hair is styled.  I always come home and redo it.  So, I am sure it's me, and not the stylists.
