High school memories: your first luxury

With the summer coming up ( its still not warm in NYC yet) and the other depressing climate we have ( hello economy!). I began to think of the luxuries of my yesteryear.

In HS I had ( and still have) skin that gets oily by mid-day. I remember my mom going out and buying Clinique's 3 step system ( I skipped out on the Dramatically Different Lotion) and played with my Black Honey Almost lipstick.

When I got my first job at 16, I remember my first purchase(s). Chanel Boa ( Hot Pink) nail polish and a Bebe tank with "L" in cursive on the side. I still love Boa and have back ups of it that I occasionally use when the summer months approach.

For my 17th, my friends got me a makeover at MAC Fashion Valley ( which was open for 2 months at the time) and I was exposed to a whole 'nother level! I got a free mascara "x" and Icon lipstick and we headed over to Mission Valley to take Glamourshots (haha, we looked so ashy!).

With all thats going on in the world, I'm glad that I have fond memories of what makes /made me happy as a teen and what has made me an even more thankful adult.

Lovely post about memories! I think all of us had tried Clinique's 3 steps as teenagers!
