Chris Gets Pampered at the Guerlain Pampering Party in Natick!
HERE) on Saturday, March 22nd at the Neiman-Marcus store in Natick and decided it was time for a “new” face. Now, I am a pretty realistic person and I know my “old” face wasn’t going to magically look like Angelina Jolie -- but I have been doing and using the same products since Jimmie Carter was President so I thought what the heck, let’s give it a try.
Well, I looked pretty darn good with new products and the help of a lovely, patient woman who showed me how to apply my new make-up. I didn’t even mind the photo op now that I looked so glamorous. It was a really fun time, with a lot of support and help from a great group of professionals who pampered us with French music, hor d’oeuvres and wine! Imagine, shopping with a glass of wine. Now that is dangerous!
Fast forward to my home the next day. Same face, same new products but omg, without the help of the skilled pro, I don’t resemble the confident woman I was yesterday. Practice, I need practice (lots and lots of it). Much like any new skill, it takes time to learn and master it. I find myself in the same boat as our students and adults. I am in need of a nurturing, safe environment where I can practice my skills without fear of failure or ridicule. That’s one of the things I so love about Latham. It’s a place that says “I know learning new things is hard, but I will help you and support you as you learn this skill and I will be patient and partner with you until you master it.” That’s what I need right now.
So, with my new make-up in my purse, I leave my house and arrive at my office. If there’s time, I’ll try my hand at the application of it in the safety of my office. I know that everyone here will be kind and encourage me to keep trying. Wish me luck and please let me know if one eyebrow is heading in the wrong direction….
