Every time blogging starts to feel one-way streetish y’all come and remind me it is not. Thank you for giving me blog material and for your very kind words, especially about my little Sandwich, she is so special to me.
About that shirt…
A few months ago I was on an airplane between here and Orlando and a passenger a few seats behind me had on a beautiful shirt. It’s rare that I see something that I like so well (at least fashion related) that I feel inclined to ask where it came from, but that shirt, I really liked it, I needed to know more. I decided when we landed I would track her down at baggage claim and ask her where it came from. I was prepared for her to tell me it was something very fancy and expensive and then I would get over it quickly. She said it came from a local store at Destin Commons called Luxe Apothetique. A few days later I ventured in and low and behold, they had one left. A medium, I really needed a smaller size, but it was a flowy shirt so I figured I could make it work. It was around $50. This was a few months ago so I’m not sure if they still have them or not, but here’s the only site I can find for them. The shirt is their brand… they sell a mix of clothes and cosmetics.
My exterior paint colors. My house was green when I moved in, it’s probably not the green I would have chosen, but I have grown to love it. They aren’t your typical house colors, which is probably why I like them. They are all Sherwin Williams colors.
Someone left a comment asking if I am pregnant… hmmm I am not, and hope that I don’t look pregnant.
It cracks me up that I get questions about my lipstick. I have been a loyal Cover Girl Outlast wearer for years. You have to put it on your lips bare (no moisturizer or gloss – or it won’t stick), but it lasts a long time.
So that’s my line up… and sometimes I top it with Sugar Baby gloss by Fresh. And at the bottom of the line up is a fantastic color (a gift from a friend) by Napoleon called Sergeant Deco.
About my hair… this is funniest to me. I get it cut twice a year and sometimes I brush it, other times I don’t. If I brush it I use these products below… not all at the same time, just depends if Sloane is below me tugging on my leg. My sister-in-law and cousin both work in salons that sell Bumble & Bumble and they turned me on to tonic and also surf spray (not pictured). The Paul Mitchell Quick Slip keeps my hair smooth- love that stuff. I do not color my hair… I feel like it’s hard enough to get it cut. I contemplated going darker, but got scared. I did have a perm or two, circa 1987. I don’t really know what the Moroccan Oil does, but it smells good. It just occurred to me that I had my hair “done” in those pictures of me and the Sandwich… which is maybe why you kind people asked about it! I was photographed in the photo shoot at my house last week and my sister-in-law came and did my hair… then that afternoon Marla snapped those pictures while I was still “done up”. I don’t own a curling iron, but she had two and used them and made my hair look much better than I ever could have. Thanks Leah!!
In chicken news… I’ve convinced my husband that the chickens are a good idea. Doing some research and hoping to start on the coop this summer… stay tuned.
