MIA

15th August 2012

I know I have been sort of MIA lately, but it’s because I am currently in the process of moving.  And trust me, no one wants to see what I look like while moving…it’s not pretty.  Luckily, we took a break last night to grab a meal in a real restaurant.  No more take-out!  My clothes are currently all over the place.  Some are here, some are there and to tell you the truth, I don’t know where anything is!  This outfit came together pretty quickly with a couple of the first things I could find.  I think this week is just going to be like that.

Blonde Hair, Fair Skin

10th August 2012

The girl who shampoo-ed my hair at the salon yesterday told me that I look like “those classy celebrities with the blonde hair and fair skin.”  Of all the ways I’ve been called pale, (and trust me, there’s a lot) that was the nicest.

There’s the girls who complain to me about being “so pale” and “needing a tan” right before adding, “but it looks good on you!”  And how could I ever forget the classy gentleman who said “you’re the hottest pale girl I’ve ever seen.”  Let me tell ya, he is probably making some lucky girl really happy with compliments like that one.

But that shampoo girl made me leave the salon with just a little extra pep in my step.  Take that, all you tan people.  Rachel at Winning Image thinks I look classy.

A True Challenge

6th August 2012

Saturday was my sister’s birthday.  She wanted me to go shopping with her and get her present at the mall.  This was a real challenge for me.  I know that I haven’t written any posts about my six month challenge lately, but that’s honestly because I don’t know what to say other than it’s been hard.  I haven’t bought one single piece of clothing (or jewelry, shoes, accessories, etc.) for two months.  I know this is probably normal for a lot of people, but let me tell ya, this is not normal for me.  This isn’t even in the same universe as normal.  I told my boyfriend that it would be like him giving up the NFL for an entire season and I think he is finally starting to see just how difficult this is for me.  And I’m pretty sure I love clothes more than he loves football.  All I can say is, when December 1 hits, I hope I look at my bank account and think how it really was worth it and that that J Crew dress I was dying to have wasn’t even that cute anyways…
