I figured since I’d just recently posted photos of my hair a month after that horrible dye job (dis), why not post photos the day after?
Obviously, I’d seen my hair after that woman had destroyed it, but that was during night-time and in artificial lighting. The morning after, outdoors and in natural sunlight, I took one look at my hair color and let out a colorful stream of expletives. Not to beat a dead horse, but I payed a lot of money for dry and frizzy hair (my hair is still mad at me since that incident) and worst of all, that looked nothing like the ashy-blonde that I’d asked for (and shown them pictures of, from their own Instagram account lol)
It might sound like I might be exaggerating for effect, so I figure a picture is worth a thousand words ergo here ya’ go! That said, it’s not really that big of a deal. It’s just hair. I’m glad I went through with it anyway, because it confirmed the fact that as I’m getting older, I much prefer darker hair on myself.

Shoes: Only Bronze Gladiator Sandals (reviewed here)
I really wanted to feature how cool those Bronze Gladiator Sandals when worn and tried linking the review post (dis) to these photos except… I couldn’t find them. Apparently, I never posted the photos (probably ‘cuz of the horribly quality lol). So, I figured I might as well post them now.
These pics are old (literally a month after the whole bad dye job incident). My hair was still reeling from the aftermath lol
At this point, there should be no disclaimer needed, but I’ll do it anyway. I am absolutely terrible at taking pictures of people (myself included), places and things. If I only posted “perfect” photos, each post would take a year. So, I’ve chosen to sacrifice the pretty, for the sake of time and convenience. In any case, the point of this blog is to share info, such as you can find xyz at this store for this price in this many colors, etc… (and also for me to ramble on lol) and the photos are just a part of it, not the main feature.
Also, the lighting sucks ‘cuz when the house was being rebuilt from the ground up, I insisted on having dimmed lighting in my bedroom, because that’s where my xbox situation is located (like a real adult) and didn’t take into consideration the practicality aspect of it, like getting dressed, putting on makeup, getting mah herr did, reading and finding my way around my own bedroom in general lol
Before my nieces and nephew moved back to their home for the start of the school year, I took them shopping for clothes and things like that at The Avenues.
This was the Handbag my sister got for me, as mentioned in My Story: Handbags post (dis).
It wasn’t a birthday gift or anything like that. She just happened to be out with her kids, saw this on display in the window, remembered how earlier I was rambling on about how “Fringe” was having a moment (I just remarked on it, in passing) and she thought I might like this thing! Isn’t she sweetest?
I mistakenly referred to it as Faux Suede, but it’s actually Faux Leather (these things happen more often with some of my longer posts).
This was the H&M Over-Sized Ombre Tote Bag I mentioned in My Story: Handbags post (dis). I mistakenly said that it was a White to Coral gradient, but it was actually more of an Off-White (Ecru?) or Beige rather.
I was shopping at The Avenues with a friend and despite the fact that we were both grown women (nearing or possibly already in our 30’s, at the time), we both decided it’d be cute to buy matching stuff…
We picked up matching Neon Pink Windbreakers from American Eagle and a bunch of other stuff from other stores, including these Ombre Tote Bags from H&M.
Prior to the H&M Ombre Tote Bag, my “go-to Beach Bag” was the M&S Twiggy Tote Bag (dis). I alternated between the two Tote Bags, even taking both with me while traveling abroad, but over time, began to favor the H&M Ombre Tote Bag slightly more.

Like I said earlier (dis) I was going to start unpacking some boxes (that have been taking up space in my apartment for quite some time now). I was going to be keeping what I wanted, handing down or donating what I didn’t wanna’ keep and trashing whatever needed to be trashed. There will be more upcoming posts that are similar to this one (maybe).
