Made ribbon garland inspired by Pinterest. I have a little party coming up at work and this will be perfectly girly.
I haven't used heat on my hair since mid-December which means I'm now running out of ways to make it look good. I've been rocking my natural curls, but the English weather makes my hair more frizzy vs the perfect natural curls I get in the States. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect products to make my hair UK compliant. Until then, a side braid will do.
Sorry for the unplanned silence. I've been in the US living it up in ways only an expat can understand. Now it's back to reality.
Not fun. Especially when reality involves returning to work less than 24 hours after arriving home.
But there was lots of fun to be had. Mainly involving food, of course. And coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.
Which I also brought home with me.
What is it about eating bad for 3 weeks that makes me want to carry on the trend? I spent all day yesterday at work googling copycat recipes for places like Taco Bell and Olive Garden. You know, just the usual 5 star dining establishments.
Anyway, I better run and do some laundry with those Tide Pods I dragged back so it actually looks like I accomplished something today.
August is the month of vacations in Europe and I certainly made up my lack of vitamin D this summer. Portugal is the perfect destination for a few reasons: 1)it's inexpensive, 2)it's in the same time zone, 3)it's a short flight and 4)the weather is perfect.
Pretty packaging makes me eat my five a day.
My new alternative to Saltines. They are pefect because they are wrapped in personal portions. Get them at Partridges. (They also come in whole wheat and unsalted.)
I've had a hard time finding some fake flowers that look decent enough for me to want in my house. So I made some out of tissue paper and I quite like them. This isn't their final home, just a resting place while I whip up a few more.
