First Loves

So today is the 28th birthday of high school boyfriend! Happy Birthday to him!!! If he and I were still together the total amount of time would be... 11 years 9 months and a few days lol. Oh, how far we've come and changed over that amount of time. He really was my first love and will always hold a special place in my heart.

There are other "firsts" in my life that also will always hold a special place in my heart. I remember vividly my first *real* lipstick. It was by Bonne Bell "Lip Gear" and came in a grayish tube.. the shade was called "Honey" and it was a very soft, light brown. I loved it so much, I got another of the same brand just another color--that one was "Pink Lemonade" and as expected was a light pink color. Lipstick was the first makeup I was actually "allowed" to wear. And it was probably because it was so much like lipgloss (which I'd been using my entire life;) I've searched high and low for pictures of these first lipsticks and I can't find them anywhere! I did however see a multitude of other Bonne Bell products that were also very early products for me. I had the lip sheers lipstick (in "Wine Cooler" which was a deep burgundy wine color and another brown one I can't remember the name). All of my lipsticks back then were really matte and simple. :)

How about first nail polishes?? I can't remember exactly which ones were first, but my first three were a dark blue and a silver glitter from Wet 'n Wild and a hot pink I'd bought at Claire's. I used these polishes ALLLLL the time. My dad didn't really like the blue one 'cause it made me look trampy or something lol, but the glitter was totally okay and I wore it so much the bottle was almost empty!

Years have past and I don't have any of those firsts in my life any more, just the pictures and memories. But even though times have changed (and so have I) I still find myself enjoying some of those firsts--I still have a lot of Bonne Bell items in my makeup collection; most of my lipsticks are still pink and brown; and I now have multiple pinks, blues, and glitter polishes:) Maybe some things never really change...

What were some of your firsts? Do you ever find yourself reverting to the age old staples?


  1. I think my first nail polish was a Wet n' Wild white pearly color. I don't wear it anymore, but i still find myself leaning towards clear/opalescent nail shades.

  2. Oo I love how dads always default to that "slutty/trampy" comment when they don't like your makeup/hair/nails HAHAHA...I do remember spending most of my allowance in Claires *sigh*

  3. My first mascara was the Maybelline Great Lash mascara in the pink tube with the black label. I've been using the same brand of mascara for over ten years.

  4. Michelle, that's one of the most common mascaras out there, and if you only ever use one mascara you're whole life, that's a great one to have on hand!!:)
