Dress Target 4 years ago
Tights Hue 2009
Shoes Clarks 2011
Necklace Katies 60s?
Belt Target 2011 (if you want small belts they have them in a ton of colors. They are pretty great. I got this one as a gift and have gone back for more colors)
The dress and tights are Navy, not black like the outfit photo looks.
Shoes Clarks Demure in Blush (They are onsale in store.)
Chanel eyequad in Lilum. I used the pink and green on lid and the dark green as a liner. DollyMix blush by MAC and a Glee gloss from Chantecaille
I got the fatter hot rollers. I like how it comes out compared to the small set.
I got this set. The rollers work great but I have two complaints about it. The pins that come with it are 100% useless. Throw them away and get some clips, I used the ones from my small set. I couldn't get the pins to work. If you don't have long hair I would accurately recommend this set.I have the same set but from 2002 and it is awesome. My hair is just too long for them so I needed bigger ones. I wish the jumbo set was like that one. The clips and the holder is just superior. They cheaped out on the jumbo set. For $20 though they work great. I can't stress enough HOW EASY it is. Total head in 5 minutes. I swear. Then pull them out as you are about to walk our door and run your fingers through, spray. DONE. I use enough hair spray that I am sure I am quietly killing a small hole in the ozone. That is how I get it to stay despite the weeks on end of rain. They fall by mid day the mist is too much for them but they still have a nice wave.
See whole head. 11 rollers.
Since I don't have any kitten pictures for you here is my morning scary dino face.
Dave woke me up 15 minutes early and I was next in line to talk to Winnie the Pooh and have him sign my book. No idea what that means but man I wish I did. Maybe cause I saw the poster for a new movie on Saturday when we went to see Bridesmaids. Which by the way is HILARIOUS. I went with my inlaws and sister in law. We were all laughing the entire time. Then we worked on cleaning their basement. I swear I feel like all I've done the past month is clean basements. Oh wait that is because that is all I have done. NO MORE BASEMENT CLEANING. If you ask despite how nice I try to be I might kick you. No more.
Trying to fall asleep last night I came with an idea to transform some furniture for the new place we don't have yet. Cart meet horse, you shall be in front.
So I just ganked the valance pic and this is just an idea. Since the two things are different styles, paint them to match then put a curtain over the ugly part. eh? For an vanity. Mind you this isn't to scale either. I think the mirror is very large. I am trying not to get to excited but I haven't lived in a house since the mid 90's when I left home for school and never went back. It will be nice if we get this place. It's only one part of a three family but it is IN A HOUSE WITH A PARKING SPACE oy. Last house I lived in was in Miami. So not the same. Florida houses aren't New England houses. Can't compare. It isn't as big as our last apartment in Florida but it will be at least twice the size (possibly more) of the current one. 4 times the size of our first Boston one. oy. I am already obsessing that I didn't decorate the apartment we don't have, correctly. My priorities today aren't my best work.
For people who have never lived in a big city. City parking blows so hard. You get a sticker for your particular neighborhood and the city gives more than their are spaces.(I've heard stories it is 2 times and also 4 times. Not sure what is true. I'd believe either) Some spots are 2 hour visitor and some are resident. Then you park where ever the hell you can. Spots aren't marked. It is a free for all. You squeeze it where you can, hit cars until it fits. Not near a hydrant and no more than 12 inches from a curb. On two separate occasions we drove around for FOUR HOURS looking for a spot. I am not kidding. Not in the least. An hour is common. 2 even. Then you just don't move it until someone breaks a limb. Oh and then there is street sweeping and snow bans. In 9 years we got impounded twice. Both for NOT POSTED construction, if they file for a permit that is ok even if they don't post you are supposed to be psychic an know that they applied for a permit. (grr) Not a ticket, friggin impounded. But we never got a parking ticket. No wait we got one for car running double parked once, on my birthday. Left the car for a minute. Got a ticket. Eh we were wrong but still it sucked. It was on a rental too. We have parked a mile away, forgotten where we parked and been unable to find it in snow storms. More than once. Having a parking space is going to change our lives. We will be able to GO PLACES on a weeknight and not worry about the restaurant valets taking all the spots. (we live in a tiny neighborhood with over 200 restaurants currently) The worst is too the ummm how to say this.... the guys who think they are mobsters and "save" spots. I am not about to question them, the mob is a very true thing here and I am not about to question the guy in folding chair that he can't SAVE SPOTS. I will miss living amongst them though. They make for a VERY safe neighborhood. Self policing is an understatment.
How was your weekend?
