I've been in a total funk lately. I'm sure it was brought on by my 3 day hangover after my trip to Richmond but it stuck around as we continued our week. Sitting around watching the Olympics makes for a good excuse to be lazy. It's the end of the month, so there's no good food in the house. And I don't have anything REALLY exciting on the books for awhile so things are just kind of meh. And in keeping with all things meh, here are some meh sort of updates.
1) The Moss Stairs: I had high hopes. I really did. Since there's already moss growing very close by, I assumed my little push in the right direction would produce more of the same. Wrong-o. The stairs have grown zero moss. Now, keep in mind, the directions I used called for mixing in a beer. I've seen others using buttermilk so there's always another option, should I want to try it again. And you know what? I actually might. I want those mossy stairs real bad.
2) My generous in-laws hooked me up with an Ulta gift card for my birthday so I was able to go shopping for my new adult skincare regimen. Now, if you'll remember from my wishlist, I thought I wanted the pricey Clarisonic Mia. But then Michelle suggested I try the Olay version for about a quarter of the price. Dude, she's a doctor, of course I'm gonna listen to her. So I bought the Olay version and have been using it about 4 to 5 times a week and have definitely seen a difference. I had this random weird dry patch on my lower cheek near my ear for the longest time and within a few days, it was noticeably better. Pretty sweet, eh? I really do love when cheaper shit actually works. For reals.
3) Remember that wedding I went to last month? Well I bought new shoes and I wanted to tell you about them. I am obviously not a heel-wearer on the regular. I'll suffer through a night of wearing them for a special occasion but usually hate paying so much money for shoes that always ALWAYS freaking hurt. And if you look for "comfort" shoes, they're usually fug. So when I found these Naturalizer shoes, I was pleasantly surprised.
The heel is high enough where I don't look like a grandmom and the platform helps with the comfort. All of the strappiness keeps your foot feeling secure as you drink your 9th vodka and soda and traipse across the dancefloor.
That's all I got for you dudes. I did hear your request for a tutorial on the collages so I'll get working on that asap.
