Hey guys! Today I thought I'd do a this-was-my-day-here-are-some-pictures-I-took-during-its-duration type post. So here is! ;)

The first thing that happened was my mom went for a facial at a local salon/boutique/spa place thing, and, while I myself didn't get any treatment, I did go with her. While waiting for her to be done, I wandered around the boutique part of the establishment and man. do. they. have. some. cute. clothes.


So I'm not really a big fan of the dress but man that vest like hello there vest can somebody please get me that vest.

Oh my goodness Ellie wants. Now.

There was also a book of dressy hairstyles on the table in the waiting area. I flipped through it, and wow man like some of that stuff is srs fancy jazz. I can barely imagine how people do it. Here are some of my favorite styles:

Is it just me, or does she kinda look like Bella Thorne?

I love the makeup in this one.

I like this one because she seems to be genuinely smiling and having a good time. She seems more like a real person than the others in the book.

Then my mom and I went to a craft/home jazz store to get some frames for my mom to use to hang stuff up. While there, I saw these awesome mini frames:

Doll-sized! :D My favorite is the one on the left. Yours?

They also had this awesomeness on a shelf by the checkout line:

I swear when I get to be an adult going shopping totally on my own I'll be absolutely zero good at resisting things on shelves by checkout lines. ;P

I hadn't been planning on purchasing anything, but I ended up snagging this super cute to-do list pad:

Dark wash jeans in the blazing heat of summer. Go fashion rebellion ;).

And then my mom and I got takeout lunch from a French-inspired bakery and cafe in our neighborhood. I got a turkey club (turkey, mayonnaise, swiss, lettuce, and bacon):

Yuuuuum :)

And a DELICIOUS chocolate mousse:

*sings softly to self*
There was a great big moose

The top of the mousse. Sans juice.

And, as nothing happened in the afternoon (other than lazing around watching Jenna Marbles's doggie videos (MARBLES IS SOOOOO CUUUUUUUUUUTE :D :D :D)), that's my day! :) How was your day? What did you do? Comment below!

  1. Your day sounds very fun! That...mousse...I need... *mouth waters preventing speech*
    I love that black dress. A black dress and a cute sweater or jewelry is an instant outfit when you need something a bit dressier, in my experience.

  2. looks like you had a fun day! and holy cow that's some good looking mousse. O.o
    my day? err...i did a whole lot of nothing. picked up my trumpet and did some stuff for marching band *gags* but yep. went outside and felt like i was melting as i posed my vinyl girls for photos. like i said, a whole lot of nothing. but i think it was a good kind of nothing. :}


    1. I like good kinds of nothing. Christopher Robin once said to Pooh that today they should sit in a big tree and do nothing, and if someone came along they would say they were busy doing nothing. Doing nothing can be the very best thing sometimes.

      i say that as i sit here in my black tee shirt and black jeans. *facepalm*


    3. Same man same though.
      I have figured out that the longer sleeves and pants you wear, the less square mileage the EVIL MOSQUITO has to bite you on.

  3. I LOVE MOUSSE!!! IT'S SO YUMMY! *ok Lydia calm down.* Ahh well then where was i? Oh yes! I really loved those dresses it that spa! also those hairstyles were super cool! I have to do my sister's for her ball (similar to a prom) so they were some good inspiration! And I too am so temped by things by the checkout line!! >.<

    1. IKRRRRR.

  4. I want a moose going on a juice induced rampage through the store, munching on that adorable tank top (which I really really want in dark green) and then galumping behind you and your mom as you go out to lunch and snuffling over your shoulder at your mousse.

    Today I rode the ferry to whidbey island with Francis The Gender-Ambivalent Plastic Dragon.
    I took pictures, which I'll post soon.

    1. OMG SAME. Srsly though that moose would be soooo cute.
      It would look good in dark green, especially with the pink on it, I think.
      Francis sounds awesome.

  5. Oooh lovely photos and that mouse looks AMAZNG-LOL I typed Mouse.. MOOSE! =D

  6. I like the black dress or the tank top as well.
    OH MY GOSH. I love chocolate mousse. So much.

    Unfortunately I didn't get to go shopping. My sister left for summer camp yesterday and I mostly moped around (because my sister is nearly a year apart from me and we almost never fight so we're like best friends) until I had to go to the dentist. I spent an hour laying down having my mouth numb and worked on. (Ouch).


    1. IKRRRRRR!
      Aw, phooey. That's great that you and your sister are close, though.
      Yuck :P I have to go to a dentist appointment later this week, I think, to get an expander put in. Idk what that does but oh well.

  7. STOP MAKING ME SO HUNGRY. Lol. It's not even funny... xD Looks like you had tons of fun!

  8. Okay, that black dress would be great at a middle school dance for me... and *GASPS* GHIRARDELLI(is that spelled right?) SQUARES!!! I love the mint ones the best.
