I’m in love with Zoey Deutch who plays Juliet Martin on Ringer. I love her style on and off the show. Plus, I think she’s absolutely stunning. Interesting fact: Lea Thompson, of Caroline in the City & Back To The Future fame, is her mom.
I stopped into Target today to buy some new socks because my dryer has mysteriously eaten 11.5 pairs of my socks. I like these Merona crew socks because they are thin and they don’t slip down when I’m wearing my Frye Engineers. They’re always sold out at my local Target. Not today! I also found these Mossimo teal skinny jeans for only $22.99 and they fit me like a glove. I’m a sucker for cheap skinny jeans because it’s so hard for me to find ones that fit my wide hips, non-existent ass, and chicken legs! And gone are the days where I would willingly spend over $150 on a single pair of jeans. (What was I thinking?!) I would have bought the magenta and white ones, too, but they only had tiny sizes left. And also gone are the days where I could fit into jeans the equivalent of a size 00.
After more than 3 months of hemming and hawing and adding things to my online cart and removing them, I finally decided what to buy with the Saks gift card I got for my birthday. I’ve been searching for the perfect pair of tan flats for a while now. I happened upon these Tory Burch Royal Tan Reva flats during an insomnia-induced online window shopping spree. They are the perfect shade of tan.
As with all my shoes, I usually have to stretch them to fit my wide ass foot, for which I have my dad to thank. That is where my Santa Claus socks come in! I usually wear them around the house like this for 2 hours or until all feeling and circulation is lost in my toes; whichever comes first. If the shoes are especially tight, I rub the inside with a bit of alcohol first, which loosens the leather. Leather Tory Burch flats tend to stretch about half a size with wear anyway but, this way, there is no painful break-in period. …Just a painful two hours of looking like a weirdo.
I bought a bottle of Kerastase Elixir Ultime after reading rave reviews on it. I was a bit hesitant to shell out $54 for a hair product, but I figured I’d take the plunge because my hair is in bad shape after all the bleaching and blow drying. I was also desperate after my last trip to the salon left me with a lot of breakage and severely dry hair. I’ve had the chance to use it over the past few days and I’m pleased to say that it was definitely worth the money. It’s supposed to repair your hair while smoothing it at the same time. I’m not quite sure about that, but it definitely does make my hair look shinier and smoother, given the condition that it’s in. And even though it’s an oil, it doesn’t leave me with greasy hair.
Here is a before and after picture of my hair.
Just kidding. But it does make quite the difference. Also, I ordered it from the Kerastase website and got some free samples!
While I’m in the spirit of blogging… I bought this mirrored accent table from Target last week that I’m using as a nightstand. I’ve been searching for a nightstand for the past few months and I actually found a different mirrored one with bronze trim at TJ Maxx last week. It was so cute, but my more-frugal-than-me boyfriend talked me out of spending $150 on a nightstand. …Coincidentally, I found this one at Target the next day for $90. No bronze trim, but still cute!
Yikes. I just realized I haven’t had a tattoo removal update in almost a year. I had my 9th session back in October 2011. I haven’t noticed that much improvement from session to session…but now looking back on my progress photos, the difference is definitely noticeable. That weird bump that I posted about last March seems to have become less visible in the past few months, but it’s still there. As of right now, I have 1 more session left in my package. I hate dealing with the aftercare, especially during the warmer months when I can’t cover it up with a hoodie, so I might wait until the fall again! I know I will need a few more sessions after that though. The green is just not budging. Anyway, without further ado, here are the progress photos.
I have 3 assignments due next week and I haven’t started any of them. Sounds like a good time to blog if you ask me!
I dressed up for a Halloween party last night. I haven’t done that since 2008 when I was an iPhone. I forgot how much fun it is to dress up and be silly for a night. I miss the old days when you’d go trick-or-treating and come home and spill all your candy on the floor and eat til your teeth hurt. And every house in the neighborhood had a creepy Halloween display. No one around here does that anymore. ‘Twas a simpler time back then.
Anyway, I dressed up as a loofah this year and my boyfriend was a bar of soap. It took 40 yards of tulle + 150 safety pins to create my costume and about 4 or 5 yards of felt to create the soap. Oh, and a lot of pricked fingers and band-aids.
