Not long ago, I found myself trapped in a dark and merciless place. This place, my friends, is called Kansas. And I’m not even talking about the civilized part of Kansas, that is, Kansas City. Oh, no. This place was full of country folk and socks that only came in white. 
Sickening, I know.
Anyway, to pass the time (and because I happened to be there anyway), I found myself wandering the aisles of Walgreens. There, I happened upon a magical acne treatment spot stick from Yes To Tomatoes . As it was under $10, I needed a distraction, and I really like roller sticks, I purchased it.
A better decision has never been made.
Ok - that’s probably not true, but I like it a lot. 
It’s gentle, and uses salicylic acid, which I consider to be a proven winner in skincare, and tomatoes to clear up your skin. It’s 97% natural, and doesn’t contain parabens, pthaletes, or sls.
It’s not globby or noticeable, and the rolly ball feels real nice against your skin. Excellent.

My haul. All of the things I needed but really shouldn’t have bought. Oops.

There comes a time in every year when I crave all things yellow (or in this case, goldish). Ok, ok, not all things, but definitely all clothes. That time is creepin’ up, which is fine by me, because I’ve already got a goal.
That said, it’s not really a very attainable goal unless some unforeseen whirlwind of profitable events takes place (and fast!), but a girl can dream.
Just take a minute to admire this Alexander McQueen dress. See, I told you it was unattainable. It reminds me of a modern version of Belle’s ball gown from Beauty and the Beast, and let me tell you, that is my dream dress. Or at least it was when I was five. Either way, it’s glorious. 
Since I don’t have almost $5,000 laying around to blow on one pretty dress, I’ll just have to set out on a quest for a cheap dress in that style. After all, I always find that being prepared with a beauteous mental image makes shopping for a very particular item more tolerable, and definitely more successful.
As always, I’ll keep you updated with my findings.

I'm really loving these grab bag-esque packages that all of my favorite companies seem to be offering. This time, it's an adorable tote full of sure to be wonderful things from Modcloth! Sadly, this bag (which is being sold for $20 and is worth at least $60) is currently out of stock, but I'm hoping that a few more will become available ;).



After much deliberation, I finally decided it was time to invest in some good-quality leggings. And as we all know, good quality oftentimes means pricey.
But all of mine were getting pretty raggedy, and didn’t cling to my legs like leggings should, so it was time. I read somewhere that Wolford’s Velvet Leggings  were the best on the market; they’re comfortable, flattering, and don’t bunch up around the knees. Perfect, right?
Well, they’ve finally arrived (I’m a busy gal and do most of my shopping online), and well, they’re not quite what I expected. Don’t get me wrong, they fit the description perfectly; they’re just not as opaque as I would’ve liked. They look and feel like super comfy, high quality tights.
They’re mostly dark enough, they just become a bit sheer at the top. So as long as I wear crazy long shirts or short little dresses with them, they’re great. I’d just rather not have to worry about exposing too much if I feel the need to, oh I don’t know, do a pull-up or something.
