I've Been Collared
Happy after turkey day shopping, ladies! I hope you've had your share of food and cheer with your families and are indulging yourselves today. BF and I are actually doing zero Black Friday shopping this year (though I did snag a few things online from J.Crew and Endless on Wednesday - does that count?)
This removable collar trend has spoken to me this season since I've been addicted to wearing collared shirts under sweaters. I ended up getting this sequined one because it was fun, easy (cheap) and I thought I could wear it more as jewelry than as a faked collared shirt. I wasn't really going to brave this for work but thought it'd be OK for some non-shopping-related drinks and nosh with the friends today. What do you think? Trend-worthy or pure silliness?
Mini-mouse update - we purchased some non-kill traps and within a week have captured (then released into the wilderness) five mice! Shudder shudder ... As cute as those little nubbins are, if we catch anymore this weekend, I'm afraid that we'll need to call in Peter Piper pro. Now what to do about those ladybugs that keep sneaking into the house!
Lash update - thanks for all your mascara tips, ladies! I ended up purchasing this cheapie brand but have followed your advice: go for a lengthening formula instead of volumizing for fewer clumps, don't pump the wand into the tube and don't put any on the lower lashes. I still haven't dug out my lash curler and I don't have Kim K-worthy lashes yet, but this is a definite improvement. Brow brushing next!
