Hi!!!!! How are ya?? It feels super good to be back here! I really needed that week off. I spent most of it catching up around the house, running errands, catching up with friends and regaining some creativity. I also spent a lot of it glued to the TV praying that those insanely heartless individuals in Boston would be caught. I feel much better now, but admittedly have this heightened sense of awareness. So sad...
A few more details about my time off...
+ I had a photo shoot for the blog's upcoming new design with Savannah and Jenny of Maiedae. I LOVED working with those two talented ladies!! I wore two different outfits, one which included that necklace in the first pic. Rhianna's song, "Diamond"comes to mind every time I look at it...
+ I wore makeup other than lipstick for the third time in my life for the photo shoot. It's so fun getting made up! I am still not fully rested from my busy season, so I want to kiss the person who invented concealer.
+ Bought those GORGEOUS hyacinths right before my photo shoot. That was my first time buying them. I came home from the shoot and sneezed for almost an hour straight. Apparently I am allergic to hyacinths, which is sad because they smell heavenly.
+ I had to get my upper lip threaded for the first time. The only thing that HAS to be more painful than that is child birth! I recently started putting two cups of spinach in my daily smoothie and apparently the spinach does wonders for hair growth. Lovely. That may have been TMI, but consider yourself warned if you love spinach like I do.
+ I made this salad to snack on over the next few days. It's so, so, so good.
+ I also made Sunday dinner for my neighbors. I made a pasta dish that has an incredibly rich sauce with a surprise ingredient. They loved it along with my hyacinths... :) I'll share the pasta dish with you tomorrow!
