Father’s Day

21 Jun

Day 6 Display

Sunday I was exhausted and cranky most of the day being out late the night prior. Then I remembered it was Father’s Day and had to meet my Dad for dinner. I threw on the first few things I spotted in the closet (part of the challenge of course) and headed out hoping no one would notice.

Luckily, my Dad had a crazy evening the night prior and wasn’t feeling too well himself, so it at least made for some interesting dinner conversation.


Lazy Sunday

Sunday was my husband’s birthday. We had actually celebrated the night prior at Matt Torrey’s with some friends and needless to say got home pretty late. We woke up a little hung over and instead of staying at home all day whining about not feeling well, we instead got dressed and got out of the house. We had breakfast at a local diner we just discovered, and then brought Portia into the city with us to go to the Apple Store in an unfruitful attempt to purchase a set of iPad 2’s.

All in all we had a great walk about the city and Brooklyn and then collapsed at home and lounged the rest of the day around the apartment. I’d consider it the best lazy weekend day I’ve had in a long time.

Aversion to Pink

2 Sep

I LOVE these shoes.  I’m actually kinda amazed I even bought neon pink shoes being I have this life long aversion to pink.  No joke.  I HATE pink.

My search for these shoes started when I saw these beauties at Nordstrom Rack in Union Square:

Stuart Weitzman Neon Pink Snakeskin Peeptoe Heels

I absolutely loved them, but they were over $200 on discount and made of real snakeskin.  Yucky.  So I started a month-long online search to find a pair of similar, vegan pair of neon pink snakeskin heels.

These beauties are Qupids, and cost me $19.99.  Can’t hate that.  I also got them in black just because.  Why not they’re only 19 bucks?! 

I also love how these are kind of the vegan love child shoe of the Stuart Weitzman ones as well as the platform pumps Bethenny wore on the season three Real Housewives of New York reunion show.  While watching the show all I could look at was her shoes. 

Bethenny and Her Awesome Shoes

Between realizing I love these shoes, and now while writing this post and noticing I designed my blog with lots of pink accents (totally subconciously btw) I now realize I’ve finally gotten over my aversion to pink.  Okay, well I guess it’s only specific to neon or hot pink.  I still hate baby dusty rose girly-ass pink.  Some things will never change.

New and Improved Bangs

27 Aug

I got my haircut last night.  Went a bit shorter than previously so my curls stay “bigger”.  When my hair gets longer the weight pulls my roots flat and I don’t get the funky fro vibe I’m going for.  I have to constantly flip my head over to try to get more volume, which is annoying so instead I just chopped it off. 

I also decided to change my bangs up a bit.  I had what I refered to as “half-assed” side sweep bangs.  They were never as deep a side part as a wanted, so with this haircut we thickened my bangs up a bit and made the part deeper.  You can’t really see it well in these photos but I love the way they look.  It’s a great, quick update.

In other news I was pretty pissed off this morning at Portia (my puppy).  Every morning she goes to puppy daycare and every day for about the past week or so she’s been growling at me when I go to pick her up to drive her there. 

This morning the little brat flat-out bit me and bit me hard! 

Instead of getting my feelings hurt, I figured if she can’t appreciate the fact that I made arrangements so she doesn’t have to be alone with our fat cat all day in our boring apartment, then she deserves to stay alone in the apartment for the day, with the cat.  So there, Portia!  Grrrrrrrrr!
