It’s back into the 60s! I mean, yay, but come on. The local Lite Rock station switched to Christmas, as did 95% of the stores in the mall. I like it, but I think I like Monday’s projected 37 better. Until February. Then it can be in the 60s again.

I kind of really, really love how this outfit turned out and I don’t think my photo does it justice. It was cool, comfy and seasonally appropriate. And used the red jeans without Gleeful inspiration. WIN.
I got the flats a few months ago, but never really talked about them. They rubbed against the back of my heel too much and I feared they were a waste of money. I tried a pinterest trick, though – put on heavy socks and aimed a hairdryer at the problem spots, then let it cool down over the sock before removing. It worked! The shoe is wider and the back less rubby. Still not perfect, though – now it’s painful near the toe box, and I still had to put on some blister gel in the morning. But it only needed the one application, and I can always pull out the hair dryer again. Or try the gel by the toebox, hmmm…..

I headed to the mall today to pick up my holiday bath goodness from Lush – so excited!! I got Father Christmas and Golden Showers bathbombs, Rocket reusaable bubble wand, and a sample of a fir scented Northern Lights soap. I am set for the next few months of baths, hurrah!
I also hit Forever 21, which was surprisingly unbusy for a Saturday, and got a forest green sweater (I’ve been searching for one for literally months) and a super cute peach sweater with black peter pan collar, another style I’ve been searching for for months. And only $25 total! Plus I found adorable tiny hair bows on alligator clips that I can wear in my hair or as mini-bow ties, ala Jane Bennet in the Lizzie Bennet Diaries. (Best modern adaptation of Jane Austen ever, btw. And I loved Clueless.)
I also walked past a new store that has opened recently.
I know I’ve seen a lot of bad holiday stuff being sold ironically, but WOW. Pretty much everything I could see inside the store was like this. Pretty….impressive.
