Cantinho da Casa

Cantinho da Casa

a cena repetiu-se

Maria Araújo, 30.12.16

Ontem, final da tarde o telemóvel tocou. Vi o número, que não conheci, decidi atender.

A voz de uma mulher pergunta se está a falar com a senhora x. Respondo que sim.

E começa a descarregar o que queria: fazer um pequeno inquério à qualidade da água da companhia.

Respondi, sabendo eu o que viria a seguir. A cena de 2011 ia repetir-se.

Estava preparada para as perguntas sobre: estado civil, número de filhos, profissão...

Antes de desligar agradece e diz que brevemente iria ser contactada. 

Ao início da tarde, descia eu a rua, toca o telemóvel.

Atendi. Era mesma voz.

Cumprimenta, pergunta se sou a senhora tal, que é da empresa x e que ontem tinham ligado. Que estava uma tarde bonita, cheia de sol, que a chuva não quer vir e tal.

Cortei a conversa e perguntei o que queria.

Repetiu que era da empresa x, que queriam fazer o teste à qualidade da água ( o teste do copo), que precisavam de ajuda, que ganham uma comissão quando vão a casa apresentar o produto.

Interrompi-a de novo dizendo que já conhecia o teste e o produto, que há uns anos alguém veio com a mesma conversa, que não nos largam, que não estava interessada em nada, que me desculpasse, não estava disposta a receber ninguém em minha casa, até porque tivera uma má experiência.

A mulher insistia que precisava de ganhar a comissão.

Eu interrompia dizendo que entendia, que sabia disso, mas não queria nada.

Voltava à carga comentando que o facto de eu ter tido uma má experiência não significava que todos são mal educados, e que quem cá viesse, seria educado. E suplicava constantemente que a ajudasse.

Insisti, também, que não. Que lhe desejava boa sorte mas não queria ninguém em minha casa a fazer o teste que conhecia, e que me desculpasse mas desta vez não podia ajudar.

E do outro lado ouviu-se um lamento.

Custou-me decepcionar a mulher, mas não dá.

Quando estas pessoas (con)vencem, metemo-nos em maus lençóis / despesas.

Sem dúvida alguma, eu sou o número 5

Lush

Maria Araújo, 21.07.12

 

Na página do FB desta minha fã, soube que, aqui em Braga, abriu esta loja no Braga Parque. Não fui ainda lá.

Acabei de entrar no blogue da minha fã, li o artigo sobre esta gama de cosmética, que me parece ser surpreendente, e fiz o teste.

O resultado abaixo está inteiramente de acordo como o que sinto.

Um senão. Adoro o vermelho, mas não nos lábios.

 

 

1. Your Strength or Weakness

 

Have style

Colour Reading

How fabulous! SOPHISTICATED is not only about a look but also an outlook that comes from experience. So use your SOPHISTICATED outlook to give answers to yourself and to others. Look and feel SOPHISTICATED wearing this beautiful eyeliner.

 

2. Your Subconscious

 

You're allowed

Colour Reading

Allow yourself to break away from the more serious side of life today.  Your subconscious is craving a little imaginative mini-break.  Allowing your creativity to run free will liberate you. It is just what you have been looking for.

 

3. Your Aspiration

 

Always

Colour Reading

“One day I will be STRONG”. That day has come. Make it your talent from here on in. Stand firm in your conviction, keep STRONG and you will see the difference in everything you do.

 

 

 

E o  resultado do teste aconselha:

 

 

  1. There are 3 areas of your eye. The eyelid, the socket or crease and the brow bone. For the eyelid, dot in the centre and blend.
  2. For the socket or crease, dot in the outer corner of the eye near the crease and blend across.
  3. For the brow bone, dot just underneath the brow and blend.

 

  1. Draw the eyeliner close to the lashes. Start at the inner corner of the eyelid and draw across. A fine line will give discreet colour and a thicker line will give boldness to the eye.
  2. For a softer look, draw a thick line and blend onto the eyelid with your finger or a brush.
  3. The colour bases are formulated to blend well onto the skin. If they go wrong – just blend in.

 

 

  1. Follow the outline of your lip with the tip of the sponge, then fill in.
  2. You can use your lip colour as a cream blusher.
  3. For a more subtle colour, use less or mix with a Lush Lip Balm.
