I have Happy Feet!

I've hit the Jack Pot lately in the Shoe Department. Great shoes for a little of nothing; Right up my ALLEY!

Organic made Hush puppies. Super cute unique shoe. I snagged these from Ross for $12.99

( Below) These lovelies were bought at T.J maxx. They're by a french brand named Arche. I got them for $20.00. On the Arche website which I adore, they are about $295. I would say I got a bit of a price reduction, wouldn't you? :)

They look so cute on with my skin peeping through the holes

(Below) I simply almost gasped when I saw these at a local outlet store. They're by a french brand called Maloles. Super adorable. Suede, fashionable yet sophistocated, classy...I could go on and on and on and on..... But most of all $20.00 was all I paid. This brand sells shoes easily over $200

(Below) No I'm not auditioning for Orphan Annie :) I really wanted some 1920's looking black ankle boots and after all the searching I did these were the cheapest. Who would have thought these type of boots would cost a fortune now. These are made by a company called Fitzwell and I got them from an outlet store for $15.oo. They're regular $69. Whoop Whoop! :)

Pumpkin Oatmeal failure

This morning I tried for the second time to make EatLiveRun's ( pumpkin oatmeal. Check her Blog out. She's a great. Anyway, this was my second time trying it. The recipe has egg whites which really give the oatmeal ALOT of volume. However, I cannot avoid getting nasty pieces of dried egg in my finished product. I stirred it the entire time on LOW heat and still, Egg in my Oatmeal! GRRRR! What the heck am I doing wrong? Should I not use Quaker Oats? Hmmm.

After I was done I added some of my really delicious almond butter by Kettle. I bought it at Whole Foods .

I also sprinkled a little cinnamon on top which is good with any oatmeal.

It Looked so scrumptious but I got a mouth full of YUCK when I tasted it.

I settled for just plain oatmeal with a little butter and a splash of cream :) It was delish!

Maybe I'll get the nerve to try the pumpkin thing again.... IN the far future :)

Good hair day surprise :)

My mom always told me that my hair looked its best when I wasn't trying to make it look good.
I think she's right, although I'm not telling her that :)

I literally was wearing crusty braids underneath an old hat for about a week. When I unleashed the dragon I was horrified. I planned to wash my hair and make new braids (or twists) but when I took my hair down I was surprised that it actually looked O.K. I wore it out for one day before washing.

My curls looks defined and it had great body from me using less product.
