I’m transitioning into a woman.

I mean, technically, I am already one, but I am finally becoming a grown up woman.

Like, one who exfoliates after she showers & has a nightly beauty regimen with too many creams & stuff.

It all started when my mother yelled at me upon realizing I’ve been using some drugstore moisturizer for the last decade. Apparently you’re supposed to stop using that when you exit your teen years??? Anyways, she caved & bought me some Clinique moisturizer. I was a little hesitant at first because I do not like fancy products. I am a CoverGirl through & through! But WOAH NELLY this moisturizer is friggin’ LUXURIOUS. It makes me want to have all of the lotions on all of my body. I am a feminine woman – I can prove it with my lotion collection!!!

But I still don’t know how to paint my own nails so will I ever ~really~ be a woman?
