My Makeup *Lingerie*

In My Makeup Lingerie
I'm Nenette, and I'm a makeup minimalist.

BUT... I'm also a girlie girl.

Yes, I admit it.  I love my lipstick, great skincare, smelling good, and looking cute.  And it goes beyond personal hygiene.

I want to look head-turningly good... double-take good... look-up-from-your-phone-for-more-than-a-second good.

IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK AT 48 YEARS OF AGE?!
Well, maybe, but that's a topic for a different post.  Ahem...

Okay, I want to look more than presentable, but do I always have to slather on makeup to reach that level of hottie hottitude?

How I Created a Tropical Style Garden on the Canadian Prairie

North West Garden
I'm a tropical girl.  And as a tropical girl, I must have a tropical garden, surrounding a 1-story plantation-style house, in Hawai'i.  Of course.
Well, I don't live in Hawai'i, my house is a 2-story Tudor style stucco'd monstrosity, and I'm in the Great White North that is Zone 3.  Remember the Canadian city that in 2013 was reported to be colder than the surface of Mars?  Yeah, that's this place.

Anyone in their right mind would say "screw it", throw their garden dreams out the window, and plant daisies, tall prairie grass, and purple coneflowers as far as the eye can see... or at least until the edge of their property line.

However, since I'm EXTREMELY stubborn, and not entirely in my right mind, I didn't do any of that.
Instead, ...

It's Aloha Friday!


When I lived in Hawai'i, I really enjoyed Fridays. People all over the Islands put on their best Aloha shirts, dresses, and muu-muus, beautiful flower leis, and hair flowers (left side for married/taken/unavailable, right side for singles), and of course, in every store and establishment, you hear the fun-loving rendition of "It's Aloha Friday - No Work Till Monday...."
It's a celebration of the Spirit of Aloha, Hawaiian culture, and the end of the workweek.

Here in Sarongville, It's Aloha Friday! is a compilation of awesome randomness I've come across online or IRL throughout the week.  It's our way of celebrating the arrival of the weekend.  Enjoy!
