1. Lip print errrthang
It started with a sweater I got ages ago at Nordstrom by a brand called Halogen that I, um…haven’t worn since I got pregnant with Connor last year.
Essentially, the sweater looks like a pair of bedazzled lips on my boobs, LOL!
I think it’s super cool.
I also LOVE this pair of Aldo Stessy K heels.
Aren’t they incredible!? They’re just so… They have… There are lips ALL OVER THEM (even on the soles and inside the shoes!)
And they’re high, too! I’m guessing the heels are 4-5 inches, and I’m so out of practice when it comes to walking in heels… It’s a skill, right? If you don’t use it, you lose it.
I received these as a gift. I also looked for the same shoe in a flat, but I couldn’t find one… There is this really cute purse, though!
2. This $5 cat headband by Etude House
I’ve also been loving this headband by Etude House because — you guys, if you’re a cat lady, why hide it? There’s no shame in that game. I mean, if you’re going to be a CCL, then accessorize like a CCL. Go all the way!
It’s bomb-@ss and only $5.20! It also stays put on my head. It never slips off, unlike those headbands that are a little too small or too snug and start to slip off as the day goes on…because why wouldn’t you wear a cat ears headband all day long?
I’ve actually worn it to bed, and it stayed put overnight.
Oh, and it’s really, really, REALLY soft. I wish they also make a black cat version.
3. Old Navy Rockstar Jeans
As I was digging through my closet this morning, I rediscovered a couple of pairs of Old Navy Rockstar jeans that I kindasorta misplaced for a while.
They usually go for between $30-35 a pair and come in a bunch of different rinses and regular, tall and petite lengths. The mid-rise ones I have also tuck in the gut pretty well.
I just saw that they also have high-rise Rockstars, too. I’m gonna go tonight, and try them on.
4. Laotian food
Holy crap! Have you had Laotian food?? Because it’s life changing.
I had some last weekend while visiting my in-laws in Redding (yes, they have a place that sells Laotian food). It’s a Laotian/Thai/Vietnamese place called Champa Garden, and I’d never had Laotian food before, so I wanted to try it.
I got the Champa Sampler, which had a whole bunch of Laotian appetizers, like this meaty side dish called larb.
It was all SO GOOD. Kinda like a hybrid between Thai Food and Filipino food. I can’t wait to have it again.
Apparently, there are also Champa Gardens in San Francisco and Oakland here in the Bay Area, so I’m gonna go very soon.
They also had an interesting green soda called Green Honey Bee Nam See Cream Soda…
I can’t explain what it tastes like… Maybe like grass jelly? It reminded me of things I had when I was a kid. Very delicious.
5. MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Colour Stick in Tea Leaves
In other news…you know I love the Pro Longwear Water Proof Colour Sticks, right? Well, Tea Leaves ($22) is a beautiful neutral golden brown with some shimmer to it.
I like to pop it on my lids, blend out the edge, then sweep MAC Soba Eye Shadow in my crease for a super easy, elegant neutral brown eye.
It’s been one of my favorite things these days. 🙂
That’s it for me! How about you? What have you been loving lately? (It doesn’t have to be five things. One thing is totally fine too.) Talk to you soon!
