Well, I look a hot mess, don’t I? I used surf spray in my hair and now it looks (and feels) so dry and brittle. There’s a fine line with that stuff, and I always cross it! My stylist used Sachajuan Ocean spray on me when I was there and says it’s less drying than Bumble & Bumble (she used to work for B&B, so maybe she knows what she’s talking about?). In combination with the Sachajuan leave-in conditioner spray, my hair looked amazing for days after she cut it, and I didn’t notice that it weighed it down or made it look brittle at all. Sigh.
Why is there always something new to buy?? I also need new shampoo/conditioner, the super-cheap clearance Fekkai pink stuff I got at Target after the holiday markdowns is running out soon, what to try next? I haven’t hated it, but I haven’t loved it either, so I’m open to suggestions if you guys have any. I do think I want to try the Sachajuan leave-in conditioner, though, so just shampoo. Has anyone tried Living Proof? Do they have a good shampoo for color-treated hair?
This Lanston dress I feel kind of meh about also – I’ve had it for a while (got it on sale at Shopbop for a great price), but haven’t been able to wear it. I should have sent it back after I first tried it on, but didn’t. It’s not horrible, but not something I would choose over something else, for example. It sort of swallows me up I think, and that’s not something I ever say about anything! It would be much better if the top was not so blousy or oversized, because that is the “smaller” part of my body, and it certainly doesn’t look it in this dress.
This dress could be good for traveling, and wearing at home, but seriously, I do NOT need something else I can wear at home, and while it would be comfy for the plane, I’m not sure I’d want to wear it at my destination, and it’s not very easily layer-able. Sigh. Again.
Haha! What a day I had yesterday: brittle hair, sack dress, headache and cramps. Who can guess what time of the month it is?? I guess I should be proud of myself that instead of the sour jelly beans I have stashed away in my desk drawer for just such days I ate unsweetened apple chips to get my “sour” sweet fix. And went to Costco where I passed up the dark chocolate superfruits, which are the devil in disguise, and instead purchased organic ravioli with spinach and cheese and proceeded to eat WAY too many for dinner (also the devil). Like almost the whole package – which is a lot, because it’s from Costco…
Today can only get better, right?? I think I’ll go to Neiman Marcus and play around at the makeup counters!
Oh, and a quick update: this morning I ordered the Everlane snap backpack in charcoal (I’m either going to keep the backpack or the JP tote), and the white box shirt. So now, I think I officially own everything that Everlane has ever made. I do already own the box shirt in Indigo, but I don’t wear it very often. Because it’s indigo. I love it actually, and now that it’s warming up, I may wear it, but the indigo throws me off. I also have this Jerome Dreyfuss mini twee on the way, which I’m BEYOND excited about. It’ll be great for my trip to San Francisco, and maybe for everyday wear if I can learn to scale down a bit on the number of lip thingies I carry with me.
