PeaceBang Accepts PayPal (And Credit Cards!)

Darling Powder Pigeons,

As you may have intuited, being PeaceBang can be an expensive proposition.
While I have never been a big bargain shopper for products, in the past four months or so I have spent far beyond my usual budget looking for solutions to all our skin, hair and fashion questions.

I am a knight in search of the Holy Grail of Beauty! I spare no expense! I am PeaceBang, dreaming the impossible dream that all clergy will have a polished, lovely and elegant persona befitting their calling! I heedlessly subscribe to beauty magazines and wear out my shoe leather at the outlet mall, scrutinizing today's offerings for their wearability on your bodies and for your life!

My financial advisor, seeing my annual expenses for beauty and "personal," said, "I'm sure you can cut this number way back." I said, "Well, I could, but it's become a kind of a side business." Quoth she, "If you're not getting paid for it, it's not a business. It's a liability." Me: "Well, um, what if I say it's a MINISTRY?" She: "I see you have some financial goals here. I'm just trying to help you meet them." Me: ::gulp::

Thank you for supporting PeaceBang's Beauty Tips For Ministers!

PB, all, I'm still trying to get on board with an updated look. I, too, liked the Taryn Rose shoes, just about all of them, but budget-wise it's simply not going to happen. Wondering what you think of this look. Too tame? Too olive? I'm so dyed-in-the-wool classic in my tastes that changing is very difficult. (P.S., PB - I think you and I have a similar "build," though my feet are a size larger than yours.)
