Gorgeous - Three Word Wednesday

Three Word Wednesday where you write something using the three prompt words.
This week's words are  ... Effect, Immense and Shimmer


Dressing from head to toe in black was not working, the slimming effect was now beyond a mere colour.  She had to face it, her bum was no longer big ... it was immense!  She rifled through her knicker drawer for the magic pants, but pushed it shut again knowing that she'd need a real magician for this job.  Not a girl to be down for long, she grabbed her make up and set about her face.  The full works, eyelashes, liner, glossy red lips and a bronzing glow dusted over her face, neck and cleavage gave her a shimmer and glow that shouted 'check me out'.  Then there was the hair, root lift, lacquer, large and curly, tousled to perfection.  She squeezed her stretch jeans on with the aid of a coat hanger to pull up the zip, and she was ready.

"If I'm gonna be big, I'm gonna be big, beautiful and proud!" she said, and with a flick of her hair she was out the door working her behind like it needed a warning sign on it.

She arrived at her date with her head held high and a smile that could fire an engine.

"You look gorgeous, Hannah!"

She planted a generous kiss full on his lips and said,

"That's coz I am, Mick ... that's coz I am!"

I love the way you worked the prompts in, absolutely effortlessly (as others have said) and it's a fun little scene. Good for the boy, too!

If you look good, you feel good. Glad this ended with an upswing of self acceptance.

Dear Deborah: "She rifled through her knicker drawer for the magic pants"
Would those be pants that "look good"? So happy she has accepted herself fully for who she is not what she believes is the "ideal". Wonderful story of acceptance of self!

We women are forced to fit into a cookie cutter that is usually too small to hold our bodacious dough!

Loving this offering, Deborah. It glows with self-confidence at the end, after beginning with that tentative self-doubt we all experience at one time or another!
