My quest for long hair is now over…I’ve decided that “Kardashian-length” hair is not for me – it just feels too heavy and tangly. I cut my hair a couple of weeks ago and am SO much happier with it now – it’s much easier to style and take care of.
I”ve also been picking up some fall staples – my most-used item so far have been these faux-leather riding boots from Old Navy:
I purchased them in “Cognac” and wore them so much that I also picked up the Black pair (Link). I’ve never owned Old Navy shoes before, but these boots are REALLY comfortable. They are priced at CAD$49 but I got them for around $30 each during one of their frequently occurring promos.
I also bought this striped sweater – it’s 53% cotton, so the material is very breathable, but it also adds some much needed warmth (I’m ALWAYS cold!). Old Navy always has great basics – I’ve purchased this v-neck cable-knit sweater in 3 colours (oatmeal heather, grey heather and pink sherbet). Can’t believe they’ve marked it down to $17 now…I think I paid more! These sweaters are 92% cotton – so they’re perfect for wearing under winter coats without worrying about getting overheated.
For a little cold-weather sparkle, I purchased the “Amazing” studs by Sonya Renee. They are CZ not diamonds, but are apparently very well-made – Beautygirl24 loves her pair and they are very popular among fans of theCurrentCustom.
My last purchase was a blush…I know I’m not supposed to buy any more blushes this year – but I’ve heard so many good things about these Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes (they are meant to last 12 hours and improve your skin!!) that I couldn’t wait until next year! I narrowed my choices down to Tipsy (coral), Blissful (warm peach) and Amused (bright pink). Blissful didn’t really show up on my skin, while Tipsy was too orange, so I chose Amused. I have to be careful to apply it with a light hand, as it’s very pink (but still manages to look like a natural flush of colour).
