Candy Cane...

I GET TO SEE MY BOYFRIEND IN LESS THAN 3 WEEKS! I am so happy. He was trying to make it to visit for Christmas but couldn't get the time off work. Instead, he coming a couple days after Xmas. Which is fine. I'm just happy I get to see him again so soon. =)

Thank you to all the comments on my $50 tip post. I, like some, were very skeptical about it and the intentions behind it. At first. After I got over my initial cynicism and couldn't rationalize it any longer with logic that wouldn't fit anywhere, I decided to look at it as a very special gift. I looked at the note as three girls some how knowing I needed a boost and needed to know that there was something in this girl that was special. I still don't know what that is but I know there's something. The money, I used to buy pizza for my family one day and I tipped the delivery boy $10. He was very surprised and grateful. I gave the rest out randomly to various people I came across. I thought of just keeping it but then, I didn't really need the extra money for anything. The note and the interaction with the girls was the important things that I took away from that experience.

My contribution to the half naked crowd today is a simple shot. Not showing any skin and it isn't anything bad at all. So if that's what you come for, be like the tons of people who don't come here any longer and move along, there's nothing here for you to see either.

I'm sick and I don't have make-up on. That's naked to me, just in a different way than most people think. I think when you're sick, it's a time when you look your worst. Inwardly, you usually feel miserable and those ill and miserable feelings reflect on the outside.

I love Candy Canes. We always hang them from our Christmas tree after it's all decorated up with ornaments and what not. The peppermint helps soothe my raw and irritated throat. It also serves as a handy little prop for the picture. I did some green tinting to the picture as well to try and add to the festiveness of it all. It's not that great a picture but I like it. Even though I'm sick and my skin is naked of the make-up that often adorns it. :)


Happy Thursday y'all!
X's & O's... from a safe distance, wouldn't want any of you getting sick. ;)

I love all of your shots. There's something familiar about your face that I can't quite place. Either an old friend or maybe a movie star. Anyway, it's nice to read more about the $50. I'm still so intrigued.

boo said...

Your unadorned face is quite lovely, honey. It's so nice to hear stories like yours, restores your faith in humanity just a little. ^_^

vanimp said...

I don't wear make up very often as my skin hates it .. I find natural beauty much better than a face covered in concealment ;) .. hehe I just sent my little one off to bed with a candy cane :D xx

Hope youo are feeling better. Your unmade up face is lovely as well, although it makes you look so young I feel horribly guilty for any naughty thoughts I may have had about you.

Southern Sage said...

I have about quit wearing make up myself!!

Hope you feel mo better soon!

Being sick sucks, but a candy cane oughta make you feel a lil better.

Jennybean said...

Jormengrund said...

I have to say AR.. The way that you handled the unexpected tip you got was excellent.

You, my dear, have paid it forward in using the gift you were given to spend it and the time with others.

Much good Karma headed your way!

That, and some vitamin C!

Maeve said...

You are still beautiful without the make-up.. And I like the natural look!
Would he be there on New Year?
Happy HNT!

Lapis Ruber said...

Those candy canes got around this week :-) Happy HNT.

phairhead said...

you still look sexy

Tiny T said...

I think you did well by the money! You paid it forward, then you could feel like you were not at the mercy of this person, but did not need their lousy 50 bucks, if it was given that way.

Ms. Inconspicuous said...

I love that you passed it on. :)

You made everyone's day a bit brighter, and that's awesome.

flyinfox-satx said...

I am sincerely hoping that you do get better soon. Being sick sucks!

Boyfriend coming to visit? Yay you! Looks like you are on Santa's nice list this year.

TUG said...

I hope you're not sick in a few weeks :( I know what you mean about the visitors. I would get double or triple the comments on my skin photos. Just look at which scar pic got the most comments. Now it's mostly girls coming by for the kids :)

Southern Vixen said...

I have been so busy this week. This is the first chance I have had to check out your postings. I have to get back to reading.

You are killing me this week. All of the candy canes and pretty faces? I can't take it any more! I need a bite, woman!

You are so gorgeous!
