I don’t know why I’m so obsessed with flats since it’s already boot-weather! I guess there is always a time and place for comfy ballet flats…I picked up these 2 pairs this weekend:
The Old Navy metallic flats are ridiculously soft – they feel like bedroom slippers when you put them on – and for $20, they’re even cheaper than Payless shoes (and they’re of better quality).
I love the classic black and nude combination of my Aldo shoes – I’ve been wanting a pair like this for a while – especially after seeing how lovely Lilly’s flats look with her different outfits:

Speaking of Lilly – since she’s on holiday at the moment (lucky girl!) I wrote a guest-post for her blog – please come check it out here. I wrote about 5 classic clothing items every blogger seems to have or want…and I linked to some mid-range and affordable alternatives.
Now back to my shopping – I bought this merino wool infinity scarf from GAP. I’m always drawn to charcoal grey items – although I’m not sure it’s the best colour to choose, since it’s so drab and can draw colour away from your face…but I can’t help it, I love this scarf!
I repurchased my HG moisturiser and face wash from Shoppers Drug Mart, and also picked up two Tweezerman items: tiny purple tweezers (they’re SO adorable!) and a metal lash comb. I’ve never owned a lash comb before – and this one’s a bit scary because it’s so sharp…but they’re supposed to be great when you’re using clumpy mascaras, so I’m going to give them a (careful!) try. My Falsies mascara is fantastic and non-clumpy, but I’ve been trying out Revlon Grow Luscious mascara for everyday use – and it ALWAYS clumps up!
Jessica Alba looks so gorgeous in this picture – and I love her highlights. They are a lighter brown but are not brassy or bleached out. I’ve been in a hair slump, and I kind of want to get highlights now (though not as light as Jessica)…but I’m not sure if I should – my hair doesn’t take well to “lifting” and often ends up too light – even if I go to a good salon and use all the products they recommend.
Here’s some examples of previous highlights…looking at the 2006 pictures makes me so angry – the colourist was SOOOO bad – she gave me such ugly CHUNKY highlights! I never want to have hair like that again.
What do you guys think – should I get highlights? How can I avoid ending up with white stripey hair?
