It’s Still Winter

Monday January 27, 2014 comments   

I’ve started craving a little more color in my wardrobe and went shopping for pastels this weekend. A challenge right now as every store is trying to get rid of their thick wool and black pants which is beyond tempting. So much so that I bought a new pair of black slacks for work. But I also got a light grey sweater (light grey it counts!) and a pastel blue blazer similar to my old mint colored blazer. Though it’s surprising I’m thinking about spring when it’s still below freezing most days and snowing constantly.

I got a few Elence 2001 products recently including this above hair mask. This line of hair products is all about a healthy scalp and breaks their line down by hair needs (such as volume.) This mask smells really good and fruity. It doesn’t weigh my hair down as much as Essential’s does but I want to try it a few more times before I decide if I like it or not. :)

Also I was looking at Artifact Uprising earlier and felt really determined to put together a 2013 book! But like many past attempts at creating these online photobooks I wonder if it would just peter out. Currently I only seem to accomplish putting together old-fashioned style photo albums with printed photos and album sleeves. And then I’m also like, “is this something I want to haul around with me if I move?” I don’t know. Sometimes I feel I’m the only person who could ever talk themselves out of documenting wonderful memories!

Throwing on Clothes

Wednesday October 16, 2013 comments   

I managed to remember to take a few snaps this month. It’s been mostly cooler but earlier in the month there were still random hot days here & there.

I’ll admit since the shutdown I’ve mostly been wearing the last outfit like crazy. It’s just easy to throw on and they’re my favorite pieces. I really need to sit down and weed out all my favorites for the rest of autumn now that it’s strickly cooler. … and rainy. Rainy as hell.

I was thinking of getting Everlane’s new leather bag but today it debuted and was just more than I wanted to spend. Madewell’s tote is another option but I also think I’d rather look for a faux leather tote first. I really want something crazy simple…

I found a $50 one at ZARA but I’m not wild about the hardware. I still have my red bag from last year and my canvas totes I use a lot too. I’m not bent on getting a new one but.. would be nice. meh. Just something I’ve been musing about from time to time.
