Today was quite beautiful and relaxing.I've been spending lots of time with my parents and just trying to take it one day at a time. Thank you so much for the beautiful e-mails and messages, they have truly warmed my heart and placed a smile on my face. I wish I could say that I am fine, but in reality I am quite dazed. However, I am always an optimist. I think that life truly is beautiful and joyful, if you take the time to see it. Therefore, I will be taking the time to focus on myself as this has been a very difficult year.
On a happier note, I am proud to say that today was quite active.
In the morning, my mom and I stopped by a farm to pick up some fresh strawberries and sweet peas. I totally burned my back :P Following out little country adventure,I took the time to get ready and do my hair which made me a feel a whole lot better.
Speaking of hair, I actually henna-ed it few days ago and love the results. Since I am crazy in love with red hair, I decided to try a natural way of dying it by using henna. The process is messy and difficult, but the results are totally worth it. This is my second time and I think that I will definitely be resorting to this method more often.The hair is only this bright in the sun :P I was actually thinking of doing a post about henna for hair, what do you think?
The other day, I indulged in a little bit of shopping therapy...I took the time to stop by Holts and finally pick up a Chanel's 505 lacquer.Chanel made this color a part of their permanent collection. YAY! I am crazy about and it took me months to get my hands on. Naturally, I made sure to repaint my nails the moment I got home. I am a huge fan of Chanel's Spring 2010 beauty collection. In March, I picked up their the eyeshadow quad and fell in love. And now the nail polish is the perfect addiction.I have a feeling that I am going to have a hard time getting over this collection, as it is perfection :) And to farther pamper my hands, I picked up the cutest Marc by Marc Jacobs House of Cards ring set....can't wait to show it to you! A little shopping therapy and cupcake overindulgence were definitely comforting!
As for the outfit, this is a little something that I wore to go shopping and then for a walk with Johnny (my Cocker Spaniel) and parents. I was not in a particularly dressy mood, so I settled on comfy.I am wearing: ♥ Marc by Marc Jacobs " You Set Me on Fire" Top—from Shopbop.com ♥ Talula Shorts— from Aritzia, Sherway ♥ Talula Army Jacket— from Aritzia, Sherway ♥ Ash UFO Wedges— from Holt Renfrew Last Call ♥ Coach Swingpack— a gift ♥ Michael Kors Watch—a gift ♥ Chanel Sunglasses—a gift
