A while back, I realized that my closet seriously lacked long-sleeve shirts. I’ve been on the lookout ever since, and I found this cute “Merci” tee at JCPenney a few weeks ago. From far away you can’t tell, but looking closely, the letters are made up of tiny, round black beads. I picked it up with a coupon for only $5! I like how it looks when it’s layered underneath my black puffer vest.
I saved some of my Christmas money for a trip to Ulta on Saturday. I had read on a friend’s blog that hot curlers really worked on her stick-straight Swedish hair. My stick-straight Swedish hair is notoriously bad at holding a curl with a curling iron. So I thought I’d buy the curlers she recommended—and the fancy hair setting spray too. On Sunday before church, while the baby was taking a nice nap, I used the curlers for the first time and was slightly disappointed when I arrived at church with barely a curl. I blamed it on having freshly washed hair, and the fact that there was freezing rain involved.
I tried the hot curlers again before taking these photos. I used the spray, rolled up my hair, waited for the curlers to completely cool, took them out—and nothing stayed. As you can see, I had one nice kink on the right side of my face :) When I saw this in the photos on the camera screen, I was unimpressed, and quickly pulled my hair into a ponytail. I don’t really want to return the curlers, but I also feel like I wasted my money.
