Somebody’s birthday is creeping up.
She’ll be seventeen.
Oh boy, do you REMEMBER 17?
It was GRAND!
Lucky girl, to be so young with her life ahead of her.
I got to pick out her present today and I’ve got to admit, I went FULL GIRL!
Lipstick/lip gloss set, eye shadow palette, face masks, mini spa kit, Hello Kitty nail kit, and lip smackers (because no self-respecting teenage girl shouldn’t have these flavored chapsticks in their makeup kit).
I also got (unsurprisingly) a pineapple makeup bag to put everything in.
God, I hope it all fits!
My final touch was to get a cute little pusheen keychain – a kitty riding a seahorse.
Literally, the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.
So here’s hoping she likes her gifts, despite the fact that I suspect she has a tomboy streak in her.
To be honest, it’s not all that easy shopping for a young lady you don’t know very well.
Especially when all you have are boys.
But that’s about to change too, if you know what I mean.
The only time I get to shop for girls is when it’s Christmas time and I get to buy presents for my Aunt Stacey, my cousin Jennifer and my niece Bella.
Practice makes perfect.
