It's another stolen meme!

Lime was having fun with this, and so was Cooper, so I played along.  The Queen's Meme #76

The Prissy Meme

1. What is your favorite lipstick color and why?

As you can see, my lipsticks are all variations on a pretty similar theme; matte in a vaguely natural shade. When I'm wearing makeup I like to look like me, but ever-so-slightly more attractive, you know, that I just had a great...
 sort of look. 
2. How long does it take you to get ready to go to work in the morning?
 Anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes, in actual getting ready minutes. If I get online...it may take longer.
3. Do you have your nails professionally done? Mani? Pedi?
I have my toes done from time to time. It's been about a year though. My favorite part is sitting in the massage chair with the little mini whirlpool massage thing working on my feet, hmmmmm... feels so goooooood. Then I had the gal paint my nails bright green.
4. Tell us about your latest spa experience - real or imagined.

I got a gift certificate for a massage and facial. It was AWESOME! I love being
stroked, and rubbed, and you know...all that.

5. Is there something you'd like to change about your appearance? Would you ever have cosmetic surgery?

I think I'm mostly ok with what I've been issued.
As for surgery? Well, ask me again in 10 years.

6. How do you take care of your skin?
It rubs the lotion on its skin.

7. Tell us your secrets for vibrant, shiny, healthy-looking hair.
8. What is your favorite fragrance?
I tend to like real scents; verbena, lavender, vanilla, cinnamon, or coconut,
no artificial chemical substitutes accepted!!

9. Everyone has a certain color they love to wear. What is yours?
Ummm, I am going with...brownish

10. Do you have ink?
At the moment, yes, all over my hands, dang Sharpie markers!

11. How would you describe your personal style?

This is a hat, scarf, and fingerless glove set I made for the esteemed elder sister for Christmas, modelled here by a thrilled looking Thing Two.

Pictures as demanded

First, I was gone for Valentine's Day so I missed my usual opportunity to mock.
To make up for it here is a bouquet for you all.
See how much I love you? I give you the very best.

Here is a picture Thing One used for his poster in World History in their treatment of Fascism.

Here is Notre Dame. I got to see Notre Dame, isn't that AWESOME?!?!

This next one is Sacre Coeur. Walking up all the steps to this church make me think I was probably going to see Jesus quite soon. Holy cow, it's a long way up.

This is the inside of the Orsay Museum which was once a train station. It is gorgeous on its own and THEN, when you count all the Monet, Manet, Van Gogh, Morisot, Renoir, etc. etc. it is one of the most beautiful places in Paris!
Mr. Logo was spoken to quite sharply for taking that photo. I hope you enjoyed it.
Here he is at the Moulin Rouge. Last time he was in the area he went in for a show.
Next, you have the Champs Elysees as seen from the top of the Arc de Triomphe.
As you can see, we brought our NW weather with us.
The stairs in the Arc de Triomphe.
For reasons that defy understanding Mr.Logo decided he need a photo of my ass as I went up to look at the winged victory.
Who knows...
Rue Cler is the home of a really yummy pastry shop where I got a Napoleon.
This is some sidewalk art we found.
The English language book shop on the Left Bank.
You knew I had to go there!
