I just want to start off by saying how much I loved all your feedback on my last post. I know that the old expectations of women to just pop out babies by 30 is a little outdated, but I still struggle sometimes with the concept of waiting and taking my time to decide what I want to do. But your comments really meant a lot to me and I appreciate your thoughts on the matter. Love you, mean it.
Now to AFTF:
So this happened.
Apparently my dog has entered the phase which I like to call “Sorry I’m kind of an asshole.” Not really sure what happened, but he’s been pretty bad lately, and it’s getting really old. I read up on it (because the internets know everything) and I found out that Australian Shepherds go through a “teenage phase”, where they basically forget everything you ever taught them and their sole purpose becomes making you want to call them names of which include lots of swear words.
It’s supposed to sort of “work itself out” with some positive reinforcement and a whole lot of patience. So I’m hoping we’ve only got another month of this at the most, otherwise he may not be getting playmate for a little while longer. But having said that, I was already thinking I was due for some new kicks and have it narrowed down to these three:
1. Brooks Pureflow
2. Nike Air Pegasus
I need to try them all on again and go somewhere other than Dicks, who apparently doesn’t carry shoes for people with feet bigger than a size 8. I wear an 11 so that’s just not going to cut it.
Speaking of making the cut… here’s my August Birchbox:
Pretty decent lot this month, if I do say so myself. I got a perfume sample, eyeliner, lash conditioning wash (to remove stubborn eye makeup), and a Schick razor. Anything that involves a new razor is an automatic win and eyeliner is always a good time. I’m one of those people who keeps eye makeup until it’s potentially a bio hazard, so it’s a good excuse for me to purge those
2 3 4 Cover Girl eyeliners from college high school. I know. It’s a sickness.
I was going to also tell you about a story from dinner this week where I got sassed by a waiter about some sub-par mussels, but I think I’ll save that for later. Let’s be honest, most of you probably checked out somewhere around my dog being a jerk, so let’s not drag this out any longer.
Happy Weekend, loves! xo
PS- please do feel free to share any shoe recommendations! I have been wearing Nike Frees for about a year now and I really like them, but I think I’m ready for something with a little bit more support.
