I recently turned the big 3-0 and I must say, I’m really enjoying it. I feel more settled, confident and at peace with who and where I am in life. I seem to take everything at a slower pace and when life doesn’t move fast enough it doesn’t bother me as much….Like last night for example, it was Friday night in St.Maarten and a friend of mine invited me to party with him and other yachties starting out at in a hotel room near my marina then moving on to the many island hot spots. Now,the 20-something Kate would have dressed up and headed out with the fun-lovin’ group for a wild night of fun. Instead 30 year old Kate had an early dinner, took a hot shower and was in bed, under the covers by 8:30. It felt GREAT.
In addition to feeling more comfortable in my skin, being 30 means something else new and exciting for me….I finally feel mature enough for red lipstick.
HOW GOOD IS HER OMBRE HAIR!?!?
So today I am headed to Philipsburg to do a little shopping, item #1 Red Lipstick!!!! Because I am a 30 year old adult woman who is just as happy staying in watching re-runs of Golden Girls as she would be having cocktails and dancing until the wee hours of the morning.
Philipsburg is shopping central of St.Maarten
Besides ‘super-grown-up-I-am-woman-hear-me-roar-red’ lipstick there are a few other items I am hunting for today:
a beautiful ring of the gold, semiprecious stone, stackable variety
Postcards and Stamps. I LOVE sending and receiving postcards. It’s the best deal on the planet. I mean, for under a dollar the postal service will deliver a pretty notecard to a friend anywhere in the world. It’s amazing!
Today is clearly errands, shopping day. Tomorrow, however is BEACH DAY.
I NEED this bikini.
St.Maarten has beautiful beaches
I’m very excited about my weekend plans.
That’s why this post is mostly pictures with captions….It’s 1:00, I’ve had 2 coffees (and a diet coke) and the sunshiny streets of Philipsburg are calling to me.
