Girly Girl...

Last Friday, Taylor and I took a trip to 'Girly Girl' at the Mall.

She had her 8th Birthday Party there, and she won a Makeover on the prize wheel.

Taylor's Mum dropped her and the prize certificate at my place and off we went to get her made over :-)


First decision is whether she wanted to be a Princess or a Rock Star..


She fancied herself as a Princess. She belongs to this little club, at school, that they named the 'Pretty, Pretty Princesses', so how could she be anything else. Being a Princess, apparently involves having your hair done in an up do.


Then came the decision about what colour eyeshadow to apply ...


She chose a pretty shade of lilac ...


Then there was glitter blush to the cheeks...


And a pretty pink lipstick gloss. I was rather amused at the people who stopped to watch. However, as soon as they saw my camera, they took off running..


Then came the serious business of painting the nails..


Which also involved copious amounts of gold glitter, at which point, I wanted to break into a rendition of 'Goldfinger'..


What was left after the nail glittering, was sprinkled over the hair. Later that evening, I found a whole trail of it down my sleeve, where she'd rested her head..


Showing off the fingernail bling .....


Then they wrapped a pink feather boa around her neck .... put her on stage ... and turned on a Hannah Montana tape. She has this 'YOU WANT ME TO SING!!!' look on her face..


Princess turned Future Rock Star !!! You saw her here first, folks!!

I had to laugh when we leaving. It had started to rain lightly as we left the Mall.

Miss Taylor, looks out the door and announces in a tone of horror 'It's raining, I've just had a makeover!!'

Okay, I roll my eyes and stiffle my laughter. She holds her jacket over her head as we dash over to the Mall bus terminal.

We step inside of the bus shelter and Little Miss Diva eyes the roof and announces 'Good, it's not leaking. Perfect!!'

Another BAER from me and then it's Taylor's turn to do the eye roll thing when I call her Mum to tell her the latest utterings from her offspring. :-)

Don't you just love kids and what they come out with....

She's beautiful. So cute that the princess had to rest her head on her mommy after all that beautifying; being gorgeous must be exhausting! :)

Karen said...

Yes, the whole beautifying thing was a little exhausting, methinks :-)

However, that didn't stop her informing me, that she was going to get her Mum to help her put on makeup and style her hair, for her first day back at school on Monday!!

Didn't check with her Mum, but I have a strong feeling that, that was not going to happen. :-)

She's only in 2nd Grade after all..

She's not my daughter. Her Mum is a good friend of mine. I've been caring for Taylor, during the day, while her parents work, since she was around 3 months old. She's become a sort of honoury granddaughter :-)

What a pretty princess! And what a lot of glitter! I'm sure Pickle will be all over this kind of thing when she's older--so fun!

How very fun! Where did you all have that done?

There used to be a Club Libby Lu here that did things like that...but they are gone now.

And when we went to Disney...the girls had make overs at the Bibbidy Bobbity botique...

Terri said...
