I’ve been quite busy this week since our move is next week, so I just thought I’d write a quick post with pics from my week – some are cellphone pics, so not the best quality:
Hubby took a day off work to help pick up some supplies for the basement renovation…in between our errands we were able to sneak in a quick lunch date at a restaurant near the lake – so refreshing. It was perfect weather for dining outside. Of course I had to have a frothy cappuccino (my main course was a salmon burger, but I forgot to take a pic).
I purchased this rose quartz ring from a jewelry stall. Love how big the stone is…I would have loved a yellow or green stone, but this was the only ring in my size…I will keep checking back to see what she gets in stock. This ring was only $10 and is really well made.
Love these gold sandals I bought at Payless – I adore Payless, their shoes are cheap, comfy and don’t show wear and tear. I’ve worn these every day this week – even walked through gravel in the playground – but no damage done! These were on sale for less than $25 (Payless in the US is SO much cheaper than in Canada – these sandals are on sale for $14.99 on the Payless website). Gold accessories are perfect for summer.
I purchased this orange bag from Femme de Carriere. I’ve walked by it countless times at the mall – and I loved how chubby and orange it looked. It finally went on sale (from $85 to $59) so I picked it up, but I’m not 100% happy with it. Sadly, it’s a final sale, so there is nothing I can do about it! There are two reasons I’m not happy with it – the first is that it is very soft and slouchy – so it doesn’t really hold its chubby shape when being carried 🙁 It looks more like this:
Secondly, even though it was on sale, I still think it is too expensive for what it is – it’s not really worth $59. Guess I’ve learned my lesson…test drive ALL bags with my stuff in it before committing to buy it. Here’s a picture of the mustard version of my bag (on the second model from the left)
While I was at the mall, I also bought the Aveda Clove conditioner – it is supposed to deposit colour to add warmth to brownish hair. I’m getting a bit bored with my hair, so I thought I would try this out and see how it looks.
My hair is currently bra-strap length. I’ve never grown it longer than this…because every time it gets this long, it starts bugging me, so I cut it off to shoulder-length. I challenged myself to let my hair grow until November – (just to see how long it can grow) but I’m not sure I can wait that long. Here’s how long it is now:
Have you ever grown your hair really long? Do you like Payless shoes?
