Manic Mother: Readers Write
I love this letter. I thought MY brain went in a million directions at once, but, whoa.
Dear Christopher, I bought your book Staging Your Comeback. My TBT is 3A I am 5’5 1/4 I weigh 245lb. My bust is 47 inch my waist is 42 inch my hips are 50 1/2 inches. I have natural curley dark blond hair with about 10% grey coming in it is shoulder length I tend to french braid it or pull it back into a poney tail or put a hairband on it. I am 44 and will be 45 nov. 11.MY eyes are blue/green depending on my mood.My complexion is medium -light. After taking the personal style quiz I scored 6 innovative points and 1 point for the others except for casual which was O points. I work as a licensed practical nurse 16-24 hours a week and am the mom to a 4yr.old boy and 8 1/2 year old girl.I know I am in a rut most of my clothes come from garage sales/ thrift stores. I am ready for a change !!! I have started an exercise program working out 2 hours a day aerobics and free weights to DVDS.I could use suggestions as to a magazine that might be helpful for fashion advice I do buy O magazine 5 or 6 times a year. I was thinking of coloring my hair carmel coloring with some red undertones,but I’m not sure is there a home product you would recomend? What brands of foundation do you recomend ? Is there any stylist for hair and makeup or wardrobe that you could recomend? There is a Meryl Norman salon in Quincy about 45 min. away, should I start there?? The closest larger town to me is Springfield ILL 105 miles away Chicago is 5 hours north and St.Louis M.O is 3 1/2 hours south. I am ready to make some changes in my life. I don’t want to be the fattest/ oldest looking mom ,even if I am older than 75% of the moms with children the ages of mine. Thank you for your time and imput and your book!!!! sincerely Alicia
