One of my two cats had an unplanned vet visit yesterday. My gentle giant is on the mend but it was stressful for us both.
Regrettably, because of that, I did not take the time to prepare content for today. Thanks for bearing with me while I smother my seven-year-old, not-so-little (19.1 pound) beast with affection. #justcatmomthings
Normal content returns Wednesday. In the meantime, here are some on- and off-topic things that have been cool:
I got my balayage highlights retouched on Saturday morning. I went a bit more aggressive this time; not quite to my goal. Since I am a hair-coward and I’d rather take baby steps than risk overdoing it. It was, just as before, a really lovely experience.
Would you think a $25-30 dress in this day and age to:
- be a decent-weight fabric
- be work-appropriate
- be well-constructed?
Yeah, me either. Homeyee, found on Amazon, is a purveyor of such inexpensive dresses. The brand is worn by ladies who work in television (think news anchors, meteorologists, talk show hosts). I took a gamble and bought a few; Prime- and return-eligible, what did I have to lose? As it turns out, they’re incredible for the price. Just make sure you stick to their size chart (in the product photos), not Amazon’s, to judge sizing. They’re constructed better than some work-appropriate dresses I have that cost 3-4x as much. Needing to replace some worn-out items, I purchased this 3/4 sleeved one in two colors and this one as well.
