Doing Time

May 28th, 2010 by Selise

Hooray early mark! I got to finish early today because I stayed back for an event at work on Wednesday night. Very few things beat the feeling of an early start to the weekend.

And would you look at this? I’m taking pictures outside. During the day. In natural lighting. I’d like to go back and tell myself to savour the daylight during the warmer months. Being a new blogger these things didn’t even cross my mind. Now I thank the underground parking at our apartment for its fluorescent lighting.

This top is very on trend for me. Look! Shoulder embellishments! I generally take what I like from each season and put my own spin on it but I really liked this shirt. Besides, apart from my mustard guy I don’t have any striped shirts. I don’t know how it came to be like this but you best believe I’m going out of my way to fill the gaping hole in my, uh, already plump wardrobe.

See this pink lipstick? I love it. I am going to level with you and say that I bought it purely based on the packaging (they’ve sold out of this colour). I was on strawberrynet and needed to buy one other thing to get free shipping (I know, I know, by buying something else it eliminates the whole “free” aspect) and found this by YSL. I am really glad that I got it though because I’m pretty sure I would have never picked up the colour in store. I only wear it occasionally but it feels a bit special whenever I do.

Have a great weekend guys!
