TUESDAY TELL ALL
This week tell us about your favorite or least favorite job that you've had OUTSIDE of the home (we know the hardest job is being a Mom). Or just take a minute to document the jobs you've had.
That was my assignment...so here it is.
My favorite job had to be that of a Clinique Cosmetic Consultant.
That really was a cushy job.
I had a uniform.
That standard white lab coat with the gigantic silver buttons.
It did not matter if I wore a skirt, slacks, or nothing underneath.
My wardrobe was EASY.
A sassy pair of heels and my lab coat... and I was off to work.
You can't imagine the sheer heaven I was in keeping all those products in straight little lines.
I had every drawer and shelf labeled.
It was organizational bliss.
After a year of working there I became the counter manager.
Which meant a little more pay, a little more gratis, and a little more responsibility(the books).
I was in charge of monthly inventory and ordering.
Another aspect of the job I truly adored.
Nothing makes a girl do the "happy dance" like balanced ledgers and controlled inventory.
Clinique gave me a gratis every 3 months or so and I could buy all my makeup and skincare.
What girl would not love that little perk?
I had 100's of lipsticks and eyeliners.
I could bathe in all the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion I owned.
My skin was impeccable.
I took such good care of it.
My makeup was flawless.
My nails were always manicured.
The only downside to the job was lack of exercise...I was stuck in this little cosmetic bay for 6-7 hours.
Stooping down to open a drawer of powder or applying someones prom makeup was not exactly physical labor.
(My previous job was that of a waitress at a quaint little restaurant. Running up and down stairs, carrying heavy trays. (Lots of exercise...great abs!)
In retrospect, I think this was the beginning of my weight problems.
Darn you Clinique job.... you tricked me, you did!!!
You gave me free lip gloss and skin care.
In return I got flabby arms, thunder thighs, and an ever expanding behind.
Darn You Clinique job....Darn You!!!
