Puffer fish

Feeling a little rough around the edges today. Last night after Chanel I went to the Cheesecake Factory by myself to have dinner. Dave can't eat there and I thought it would be fun for me. I um got sick. My taquitos? No es bueno. I was so sick. I got a piece of cakes to take home and it is in the fridge at home. Then this morning I woke up with a killer migraine but I didn't take anything because I was going to dentist and I was worried the adrenaline might screw me up. I get wicked panic-y from it. I get to work and my face was swollen and I had toothpaste on my black dress. #fail Half my head I spent time curling this morning is flat from the dentist chair. I am not complaining at all. I am not letting it all get me down but I am telling a story.

I took some pics of me curling it because people often ask what I do. I just use a regular curling iron and go around my head. I have long thick hair and it only takes me a few minutes. I pin my hair up and pull sections down and curl them. (Let me warn you I am in PJs with no makeup)

and once I am done curling it looks like this and I spray it.

and then run my fingers through it to losen it up.

Last night Carrie at Chanel had on a cute girlie ruffle dress with Frye Engineer boots. I thought it was a cute pairing. All my girlie dresses are in the wash so I went with a lady like dress to pair with the boots. I did a bathroom shot because it is pouring and I don't have a tripod.

Then I tried this and I have to say that I can't believe I am posting this.

Then I said screw it and tried to take a picture in my office balancing my camera.


Yeah so when I got to work I was pretty puffy. I didn't know how bad it was until someone pointed it out. It was so numb I couldn't smile.

And I don't know what the world happened but I had the iphone set to HDR and it took these in the middle of the other normal looking photos. SO WEIRD I don't know what happened. When it is on HDR it take one photo and gives you two different versions. Normally just one lighter than the other. But I want to know what the hell happened so I can recreate it!! They are the same photo but it did some weird treatment to them. I didn't change any setting the normal pic above was taken right after this without any stopping.I look SO ILL I kinda love it. I wish my hair glowed like that!

What do you have planned for this weekend?
I need to kinda take it easy. Between the food poisoning, 3 migraines, 1 missed day of work and 2 nights of insomnia I am feeling a bit worse for wear. They all feed off one another too. I hope there are cupcakes involved. We do have that CASE of cake mixes after all....

Dear Lord! Rough week indeed! Well despite it all you look great. I never thought I would be able to honestly say I like those sort of boots with a dress but you've done it! Gorgeous.

1) love the dress, love the belt, love the boots.
2) i have many stories of me and the dentist on my blog. we recently bumped into each other at the gym several hours after my appointment and he carefully caressed my cheeks.
3) i am going to Cake at the Orpheum downtown on Sat night and Rascal Flatts with friends Sunday at the Comcast Center!

Take it easy and good luck with the food poisoning....ugh.

You have a CASE of cake mix? This whole weekend should be one big party!

I'm so sorry that you got sick and then the tooth thing and ugh. It sounds awful but good grief you seem to have a much better attitude about it than I would.

I really love that bathroom picture with your leg on the counter! That made me giggle. I like the dress and boots look. Perfect contrast of ladylike and toughness.
