Another photo shoot today, this one for a friend's make-up portfolio. Tuesday I was chez elle for some testing which included gluing several sets of fake eye lashes, feathers, tiny metal butterflies, and beads onto my eye brow and lashes...ce n'etait pas le fun. (it wasn't fun) My eye was irritated the whole rest of the day and despite having done nothing, just sat in a chair for a few hours, I was quite tired. Back for more testing yesterday it was decided that the look had been too kitsch, instead she chose to paint sections of my face blue with purple shading. Oh, ok. I won't go into detail about the hair it was, suffice it to say, 'quelque chose'. (really something) The paint can stain skin if left on too long so I was treated to a quick, yet luxious facial finished off with a hydrating Chanel face cream which my skin most graciously absorbed...alas it left me with a longing for Paris.

We made it, we're all moved in. Only one problem, we have no furniture...hmm. Today we got spoons and I swear it felt like the most revolutionary moment all week, like whoa. Spoons. Heavy. We're living like vagrants, cooking spaghetti in a frying pan (yes it is possible) and sleeping on a mattress on the floor. We make these kinds of sacrifices knowing that someday (perhaps next month?) we'll get a bed frame, a couch, and yes even a pot. Le sigh. I really can't complain though, because despite living simply I am quite happy in my lot. Happy and lofty indeed. A la prochaine mes chers.
