This computer will only turn on if you’re pretty

According to the website of one of the temping agencies I’m signed up with it’s a big no-no for women to turn up to job interviews without any make up on. This agency isn’t interviewing for make up artists, counter sales people, or models, so I don’t see how my make up less face is a big deal.

To be honest, I do wear make up. But it’s minimal. A bit of tinted moisturiser, a touch of concealer, a swipe of bronzing powder, and maybe some eye liner on a special occasion.

Does this make me unemployable?

As usual I missed the boat

WTJ Write Carelessly Now

And this time it wasn’t on purpose (I hate boats).

Turns out National Blog Writing Month doesn’t coincide with National Novel Writing Month at all. It’s the month before. As in October. As in this month which is nearly over.

Not that I was actually motivated to blog in October.

Anyway, the point is that Brend is going to do NaNoWriMo and I had absolutely no idea how big an undertaking this was! 2000 words a day?! Even if the purpose is just to get it all on paper unedited it’s still a pretty massive undertaking.

In the mean time I’m avoiding anything that looks like work by pretending that I’m tidying my room. I have actually managed to get rid of a sack of rubbish, a sack of recyclable paper, 2 boxes of stuff I don’t want and a sack of clothes, but it’s taken me 3 weeks and my room still looks like a bomb went off. I’ve done no writing and am still too lazy to work on my business. I can’t even call myself a blogger any more.


This is me being accountable.

I’m going to subject you to the raving in my head for a whole month.

p.s ‘like’ Cupcakes and Mace on facebook and you’ll get my new posts in your feed and info on new jewellery designs and colours and I’ll think you’re totally awesome.
