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.
