What my hair looks like when I wake up.Mirror, Mirror
I don't actually look in mirrors, save when I am applying makeup, and then I really only look at my eyelashes or my lips, whatever bit of my face is currently most relevant.
The hotel in NYC had mirrors all over the place. Unavoidable.
First thing I noticed: my hair is long-ish again! The front layers only come down to a little below my shoulders, so I hadn't noticed that it was down to my bra strap in the back again.
Second thing I noticed: My butt looks really good in those jeans!Wind Tunnel Dreams
Still looking at maybe doing that this week and/or next week, but I want to get that Shayara sequence down first; didn't get to yesterday, as I napped much of the day away.Today
Shopping. :P Which I hate, but the kid needs bras.Yay water. <3
I don't tend to really let myself play
often enough. I am the woman in charge, the person who Gets Things Done; I am a girl in a short skirt and a long jacket. But in the water, I let myself play.Belated NYC Foodblogging
