happy 2nd birthday blog

04-08-2011
Gap denim jacket, Acne v-neck, jeans, + tote bag (via Gilt), Rachel Comey boots

Hey look, I finally got it! One of my earliest posts on this blog involved me whining about this bag and two years later, I found it on Gilt and Brenty offered to buy it for me. That reminds me, apparently my blog is hitting the two year mark tomorrow! I'd like to thank everyone who has been with me since then for continuing to come back and I'd also like to wish a great big welcome to anyone who has found me recently. I think I finally know where I'm going with this blog and I'm sorry for being a terrible poster for a while, I promise I'll be a much better blogger now!

you missed

Hey look, Megan and I finally got a picture together! First we went to In-N-Out then met up with our friend Greg for ice cream at Humphry Slocombe then headed over to Daiso in Japantown to buy Megan's pup Penny a raincoat. Did anyone notice the tiny dried ice cream stain on my pants in the above pictures? Megan caught me right when I noticed it, but I guess I didn't clean it off well enough. So embarrassing! I thought about photoshopping it out but ehh, why bother? Time to embrace my inner slob...

lol megan
lol greg

And finally, some close-up gratifying pictures of our ice cream for everyone. Megan and I both got brown butter (and Greg dumped his scoop of chocolate on mine since they messed up his order and gave him that instead of the olive oil flavor) and Greg ended up with cucumber ice milk. If you're ever in the area, go!

p.s. I'm sure everyone by now know that I wear clip in hair extensions from time to time (I bought them at Sally's but I don't remember the brand, sorry) but every now and then I'll get emails from bewildered people asking how it grew so fast (really guys?). Oh, and I finally updated my shop. It'll only be open until Tuesday because I'm going to Coachella with Lulu so email me while you can!

Also, don't forget to add me on Bloglovin' and Facebook!

Happy anniversary from a long time lurker ... I'll be at Coachella, too, hangin' in the trance tent. I'll watch for you since I know what you look like and you'll be dressed about 100x better than everyone else there! Are you going VIP or regular?

Cute bag ... love it when I finally get something I've been lusting after for years!

The Fancy Teacup said...

The ice cream looks delectable. Glad you were able to get the sought-after tote! Wishing a wonderful birthday to your blog and for continued success!

goth reform school said...

Haha I was also really confused about your hair. I thought sometimes you just posted photos you had taken months ago or something.

I'm jealous that you have such nice weather. Can you believe that it's SNOWING here??

mama*thayer said...

Are your extensions real or synthetic? I've heard the human hair extensions hold up much better. Yours look great! I've been looking for some for a while, but I'm nervous they won't look natural. Our hair color and length are similar though so you've got me searching again. :)

BenG said...

Great blog, you really have your own style, and that's very rare these days!

Hair extensions are really becoming more and more popular and widely accepted in society today, so it's important to have the know how to apply and maintain a great look. Keep up the good work! In terms of the human hair extensions, you really get what you pay for; a long lasting, authentic and glossy product.
