Dudes,

Why must the hair on one's head look über-wicked on days/nights that require bumming around at home? Merde.

This look is actually quite easy (if you have very little hair like moi)- I just curled my luscious locks (read: color-damaged & dry) before I went to bed, slept on it, then swiped a bit of Moroccan Oil through the ends in the morning. That shirt is also one of my favourite garments in the existence of my petite vie; everyone should pick up a super-soft, off the shoulder, loose, long-sleeve shirt (Holy mother of Adjectives!). I wore it all summer (on chilly days and crisp evenings), and will continue to do so through the winter. I think Aritzia continues to stock them in different shades. They're not all striped, in case horizontal lines fill some of your tender hearts with fear, the fall versions are just solid colours. ^-^

En avance... next favourite thing(s): Nivea HydroCare chap stick, because I'm pretty sure it has crack in it. Add the fact that it smells like clean babies and spring mornings, and I've got a keeper. Next: YSL Rouge Volupté SPF 15 lipstick- it goes on like melted butter, and makes you want to smile. I got mine in #7- Pink Lingerie. It makes me feel like a fairy barbie. *le sigh* The only downside is the price, ~ $40 limits the amount of YSL lip-heaven you want to buy in one go. But so worth it. Et plus, "Eat, Pray, Love" in French; I've only read a couple pages but I know I'm going to enjoy it. Lastly, cute notebooks (I have one from Antioch) with pretty page designs; it makes doing chemistry calculations 3.658 times more enjoyable.

*I couldn't find my sweater online, but whilst I browsed the Aritzia catalogue, I came across a pretty kick-ass varsity sweater. Oh and the YSL lipstick shown is NOT the pale/dusty nude pink of #7, I just had to show the casing. Superb quality.*

PS. Have you guys seen the Lanvin for H&M Preview? *cries in corner* Elbaz has outdone himself. His interview in Marie Claire UK October 2010 made every woman who read the excerpt... fall in love with him. A man after me own heart.

  5. Your hair does look gorgeous here! I'm a victim of the "it looks good when I have no reason for it to" syndrome too :P Somehow when I'm taking blog photos it never works quite as well!
    I'm now following your blog - it's great - and would love it if you'd take a peek at mine and consider following back :)

  13. I use a small barrel curling iron. Then I sleep on it so the curls will be loosened by morning! If I don't have time for a 10 hr nap, I just stretch it with my hands and let it sit for a couple hours WITHOUT hairspray.
