Act “girly” or “manly” in a way you’d normally avoid.
Short of being a pre-op transgendered woman, I am close to the least “girly” chick you’d ever meet, so pretty much anything I do that would swing on the side of feminine could count here. But I decided to do a few of the most stereotypical “girly” activities I could think of. You know, go big or go home. Wait, that was a very “manly” phrase. I’ll get back to you when I think of something less butch to say about it all.
I went shopping. FOR MAKEUP. I would never do such a thing. I mean, I wear makeup, but just the bare minimum and it’s certainly not something I like. I usually wear powder to even out my skin tone, a touch of blush because I’m pale, mascara because my eyelashes are long, but light, and lip balm. A bit of a smokey eye if I’m feeling saucy. But, really, my makeup kit has maybe a dozen items in it, including tweezers and nail clippers.
I realized I had a bunch of Shopper’s Drug Mart points and so why not spend them on something I wouldn’t ever think to spend them on?
My bounty. Boys, let me present to you what about $90 will buy.
Not a lot, eh? Mascara, pressed powder, lip gloss, eye liner, blush, three jars of nail polish, lip balm, a couple of hair…stuffs, and antiperspirant. Not too impressive, girth-wise. Also not too impressive in that I stuck with what I know. I always use Cover Girl powder, and Professional mascara. They’re cheap, but I just like those the best. I chose a sheer lip gloss in a fairly neutral colour because I can’t bring myself to wear lipstick. It’s just…too much for my face.
Gosh Wild Lilac, Essie Ballet Slippers, Revlon No Shrinking Violet (for my toes)
I am, however, excited about the nail polish. I never, and I mean NEVER, wear nail polish. I think nails are weird and I don’t see the point of them, so I cut them as short as I can. But I’ll give it a try. I can be girly. Stop laughing. Yes, I can.
Alright. I’m done being girly. I can be done, right? Being a girl is hard and very expensive.
