Shirt is semi familiar right? I have a red one that is kinda similar but not the same from last year.
They are both striped, cotton and cinched waist. The new one has elastic over a tie waist, bigger ruffles isn't a button up like the red one. Red and Navy are such staples in my wardrobe the past few years.
I have had these jeans 15 days and wore them 12 times. Yup. I wore them to work everyday for a week. Hey I sit all day, I don't really do anything to muss them up. No one noticed and if they did they didn't say anything. (they usually don't have issues speaking up either) The back pockets are quite distinct which is something I usually avoid. I have to be honest, I had them for a week before I realized they were 7's on the pocket.
There is no good way to show your back side and not feel silly, really.
I went with the obvious pairing with red lips, garnet red earrings, garnet red ring and shoes and socks.
I have been painting my nails as long as I have hand dexterity. From years of it my nails are always stained. I've tried it all and it's just something I've learned to deal with. I know I could go polish free and grow them out but then I have to walk around with stained nails. I am way too prissy for that. I found the solution. Nude polish! Love. I am going to have to tell Gram because she's been painting hers 50 years longer than me and has the same stain issue.
My favorite go to bangles.
I've kavitzed (is that a word?) about my sensitive skin ad nauseam over the years.With my cruelty free pledge when I needed to replace some items I had to branch out and try new things. I went with Clarins this time. Cruelty free and no harsh chemicals. Saks was also having a sale so it was the perfect time to try something a bit more spendy. They also gave me some obscenely large samples. (4 oz bottles!!!!!)
It has only been since Saturday but so far my skin is SO HAPPY. I can't even tell you how improved it is in the few days.I am not wearing any foundation. Just concealer under my eyes. I am still red but it is much improved. I got two things. This toner which you can use to clean and tone. Then I got this serum. . My skin hasn't been oily at the end of the day and the texture is much smoother.
This weekend we went to NYC because Dave had a business meeting in New Jersey. It was kinda last minute and we didn't have plans because we didn't know how long he'd be in NJ. It was a great little free vacation. (I even had a coupon for my train tix! It was totally free for me to go, I just had to feed myself.) His boss is the one who suggested I go. I am glad I did, We had a fantastic time. Also gluten free in NYC is insane.
Gruyere and slab bacon GF Mac and Cheese. AMAZING.
I literally chased a guy and girl down the street to ask where they got the bag of Macarons they were holding.
Dave looked sharp too. I got his shirt and tie at TJ Maxx. Pants from Banana Republic (I paid $18 for $90 pants recently. Their men's sales are so much better than the woman's)
Jacket was Pop's. It even has elbow patches.
It looks great with jeans and a button up too.
Sunday we went for a drive up to Marblehead, Nahant, Salem and Beverly MA and we found a bakery in Beverly with gluten free goodies.
You know I only show you a part of things right? There was plenty of veggies and other healthy stuff. Hell I even lost weight this weekend! I came home almost 4 lbs lighter. Weight Watchers makes you hyper aware of what you consume. I still track daily. (Since Oct 26th 2006) My mom and I were just talking about this and she agreed who wants to see that stuff? I certainly don't, yet it doesn't keep some people from flapping their gums assuming they know. I had a full workup recently. I am alarmingly healthy. (alarmingly because as a born anemic at times I can fall very low on things) Best part? My health insurance gave me a $100 gift card for finding out my numbers! Score.(see if your insurance does it. Mine never advertised it before now, I've missed out)
As you noticed I kinda of went off grid for awhile. I could apologize or give an explanation but yeah I don't feel like it. *shrug*. I am fine, family is too. Everything is fantastic actually. I've had this site 9 years. It is all ebb and flow. Sometimes are more quiet than others.
How are you doing? How was your weekend?
We have been booked the past 4 weekend am going to be until June then July we start back up again. Busy summer but it is all exciting stuff. My sil is moving back, family vacation to Canada, Dave graduating!! Gram coming to the city, MY MOM COMING TO VISIT!!!!!!!!!!! My mom hasn't been here in 6 years. (except for the past couple funerals)
