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
These are the imfamous MIA Joplyn Wedge Sandals that I keep harping on about.
I have a deep, deep, deeeeep love for a lot of my shoes, be they flats or heels or even boots, but these babies were the ones that got away (literally lol they were stolen).
I purchased them online in 2008 for I wanna’ say $40 or $50 (but used a $10 off coupon code, according to my order history).
– Jeffrey Campbell Clear Puffer Sandals
– Multi-Color Bandage Wrap Sandals (“Lookbook” here)
Lastly, here are my most loved and favorite Flats! If I could, I’d repurchase backups in the same color and in different colors… and even get backups of the backups! Would that I could… Alas, one was purchased online and is no longer being made while the other was purchased far far away in Thailand.
– River Island Iridescent White Buckle Sandals
– Aldo Khaki Burdine Peep Toe Pumps
These two may not be designer shoes but in my heart, they might as well be! I love them sooo much and take extra good care of them, because I find them incredibly aesthetically appealing!
– Carlos Vera Black Lucite Sandals (My very first pair of high heels)
– Only Bronze Gladiator Sandals
– Ivory Bow Sandals (My Wedding Shoes)
These are the highest of high heels that I own and I don’t have the heart to get rid of any of them. I’m definitely holding on these cuties forever and ever and ever!
– Marina Black Clogs
– Nasser Sports Lavender Aqua Socks
While these may not be the prettiest things ever (lol), they’re actual life savers! They were both purchased locally and were both pretty inexpensive and super easy to keep maintain (keep clean)!
