I’ve been covering my legs very often because the weather has been cold. I rotate between leggings and jeans but I suspect shorts would be thrown into the mix soon since the weather is warming up. Spring is so lovely here in Vegas!  

 

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Blue tanktop from OLD NAVY

Outwear: Grey hoodie from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Plastic airplanes necklace (gift from Tamares)

Bottom: Grey & White printed leggings from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Pink glitter sneakers from CONVERSE

I’ve been trying out this new look without the eyeliner and if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’d probably have seen it. I ran out of my favourite Maybelline eyeliner and they don’t sell it in the US! I’ve tried similar ones – fine, felt tip and black, but it’s just not the same so I’m just trying to do without it until my new supply comes in when my family comes and visit next…   

What I’m wearing today:

Outerwear: Red plaid shirt from H&M

Top: Crimson tank top from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Crochet rocket pop brooch from TWINKIECHAN; Set of 4 acrylic bangles from PRIMARK

Leggings: Grey/Black geometric print leggings from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Brown bow-tie ballet flats from OLD NAVY

Today’s lab work was easy. We were in and out of the clinic within an hour. It was really crowded when we got there and all the seats in the waiting room were taken, so I was really surprised it got to my turn so quickly. I was also glad the nurse taking my blood samples was quick too! 1 needle and 3 vials. No retry needed. Very often, I have to give both inner elbows and also the back of one of my hands. Been told repeatedly how fine my veins are. Also I’ve had blood spurt out from a vein, only then to stop flowing completely. So with the luck I got today, I’m very thankful and it put me in a good mood. The little things count when times are dreary, you know?

This is just a short post. T took these photos while we were at The Cupcakery in Henderson. They have sugar-free cupcakes and that meant that I could have one today! Life of a carb/sugar-counting diabetic, you know?

I really like my maxi skirt. Probably not the best angle to see it, since my husband is way taller than I am. Pity Wet Seal filed for bankruptcy recently. I have several pieces from there that I really like. Maybe I’ll document them soon.

This used to be something I do for fun because it’s so frivolous, it makes life a little less mundane. But with the recent developments with health issues, dressing up and documenting what I’m wearing has taken a back seat. While I’m not bleeding to death or suffering severe pains, there is just a significant enough discomfort for me to avoid wearing more than jumpers and leggings. It’s been a little harder to stick that smile on for the camera too.

But I’m not one to allow myself to wallow too long and to some extent, I find it rather self-indulgent too. So while I go get my blood drawn again for the 3rd time in 2 weeks for more lab work, I kinda dressed up for it today.

So my family left last Wednesday morning and it’s been a week since they’ve been gone. Never gets any easier. I’ve washed their dirty clothes and bedlinens but I’ve left them untouched in the guest bedrooms. Basically trying not to reset the rooms so that I can hold on as long as I can. It’s been so quiet and I’ve been all mopey. Save for a short trip to the grocery store and post office, I haven’t been out all week until today. T and I went to Benjarong – a thai restaurant near our house. So yay! Not in sad leggings and baggy sweatshirts today.

It’s officially FALL!!! (I need to say that more often because I find it weird to say Fall instead of Autumn even after a year living here.) These boots are going to feature so often in my Fall Fashions, I just know it! I found them at the Blue Diamond Road Ross store for only $16.99. They’re 8.5 and I usually wear a size 7 or 7.5. But with thick hiking or thermal socks, they worked perfectly! I was a little unwilling to let them go because they were the only pair there. The zippered back makes slipping in and out of them so easy too! My only grief with them is that the soles are a little smooth and I did slip a little at the grocery store. Probably need to get something to increase traction before I wear them on slippery cold surfaces.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey tank top from OLD NAVY

Outerwear: Mint green cardigan from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Pink statement necklace from FOSSIL; Brown pleather belt from STEVE MADDEN

Bottom: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Dark beige moto boots from MADDEN GIRL
