OOTD: Backstage NYC.

October 7, 2010

Hey everyone!
I haven't blogged in a while because I haven't been feeling too great. Mostly a combination of low energy, stress and probably SAD kicking in! I haven't been wearing many cute outfits so you guys haven't missed anything!
This post is going to be a big all-in-one so i'll begin with my outfit from today. Warning: I wore leggings as pants! However I made sure they covered my ladyparts!

Top: Topshop *** Leggings: Faith 21 *** Shoes: Primark *** Bracelet: Primark *** Ring: Miss Selfridge (I think!)

I am not really liking these leggings. I think leggings in general are unflattering (on me) because they make my legs look even stumpier than usual but these "wet look" style leggings bring stumpy to a whole new level! Oh well.. tried, tested and now I know to avoid them in the future! I wore them with a Topshop tshirt and some new heels from Primark. I am in love with these shoes, I am already planning future outfits in my head to wear with them!


On a non-fashion related note, I had some blood tests done at the doctors office a couple of weeks ago. Everything came back fine (my cholesterol is much lower than the average, no diabetes, liver & kidneys functioning normal - huzzah!) except my vitamin b12 levels. My doctor told me I had b12 deficiency so I had to get more blood tests the following week to check if I would need b12 shots for 6 months or for life. After the test results came back the doctor said she would just give me vitamin b12 pills instead, even though she said the week before that pills wouldn't work! Yesterday I stopped by to pick up the prescription for my pills and I googled the name when I got home..she gave me vitamin b6 not b12! Gah.
I'm really stressed out over this because I am constantly tired and my hair has gotten really *really* thin over the last few months (I have been losing more than usual too) The hair problem actually bothers me more than having no energy. I have had thin hair all of my life but it was never this bad, if you look at my outfit pictures you can see the ends of my hair look ridiculous - no matter how much I trim off the ends it still looks like this because my hair is just so thin!

On Sunday my mom and I ventured off to the city to attend a beauty trade event. It's a big fair with lots of beauty products and anyone who works in the beauty industry (student, make up artist, business owner, etc) can buy products at special rates. I honestly only went for St Tropez tan and OPI nail colors.. and neither of those brands even showed up! My favorite part of the day was probably the rainbow on the car ride home! Sad but true.

After reading back over this post, I feel like negative Nancy! Hope y'all are having a good week! I will be announcing the winner of my giveaway in a few days.

  5. I have also been occasionally diagnosed with a B vitamin deficiency. I don't know if getting vitamins is different here in the US, but I made sure to take a daily multivitamin, I added a B-complex supplement, and I also tried to make sure my diet included more vitamin B rich foods, something I had been lacking with my diet at the time. I am actually dealing with it right now! So I started taking my vitamins again and I'll also be trying to incorporate some of these foods in my diet: http://vitamins.lovetoknow.com/Vitamin_B_Rich_Foods

    Best of luck, it takes a little time, but vitamin deficiency is generally easy to remedy if you are aware of the little things you can do.

  6. First of all, I hope you feel better. I want the best for you in all aspects of life. Hope you're able to recover and feel better. My heart is with you from from down here in Southeast Texas.

    On a much lighter note, your outfit is lovely here. Very chic with some fierce sandals. That top is very cute as are your accessories. Very sweet looks!
