I decided to get my upper lip waxed at the local beauty school yesterday (Thursday). I've waxed it myself a couple times, but it's just too painful for me to do it. Anyway, I got it done. When I got home, my skin was on fire!! So, I rummaged through the freezer to find something to cool it done. A couple hours later, I met my friend at the gym. She confirmed my suspicions that my skin had been ripped off. As soon as I got home, I (again) found something in the freezer and then searched on the internet of how to treat this mishap. A few sites recommended applying Neosporin or vaseline to the area. Once I did that, the pain was gone. Thankfully! My students made the funniest faces when they saw my face. I told them that I drank extremely hot chocolate, and it burned me. Oh man, they totally believed me.

I attended a district school-community council meeting the afternoon. Every person has an opinion about boundaries. I feel like my school is getting the shaft.

I love Nordstrom. Best customer service around town (along with Anthropologie). I bought my boots from there. They were looking scuffed up and worn, so I called up my local store asking if they carried shoe polish. The sales associate then told me that I could bring my boots in and they'd polish them for me FREE OF CHARGE. My boots look brand new again. Take away message: if you purchased your Steve Madden Intyce boots from Nordstrom, take them in to be polished.

I love this shirt! I've had it forever. I wore it a lot the first couple years, but haven't worn it as much the last couple of years. When I dejunk, I reach for it, but then retract. It's just too good to let go. (In fact, Brittney wore it on her first date with her now husband. It has some magic.)

My hair is in the awkward "growing-out" stage. I think it looks best curled OR in a ponytail.

The clouds and colors were beautiful when I got to school this morning!

In case you didn't notice, I got some real snow boots. I'm deciding whether or not to keep them. They are way warm and would be convenient to have. What do you think? And which color do you like better?

I found a mirror door that belongs to a closet in my garage yesterday. My roommates weren't using it, so now I am.

Sad story. My full-length mirror shattered. And I mean shards of glass EVERYWHERE. I wonder what bad luck will come my way. So, standing on a box in the bathroom will have to do.
I wore this for parent/teacher conferences. All my conferences went well. No one left upset. Phew...

Yes, that was the temperature when I arrived at school this morning. Oh, and don't forget to factor in the 20 mph winds blasting from the canyon. Brrrr...
I didn't intend on wearing these boots the whole day. It's extremely icy walking to and from my apartment and car. Therefore, I decided to put my real shoes in my bag and to wear these boots to ward against falling. I remembered I had duty before/after school, so I wore them then and never took them off. Whoops.

cardigan: F21

I love me some animal print.

Church. I really like this dress; although, it's a little much to wear it without a cardigan. Banana Republic knows how to make a quality and classy dress. (I've had this one for 3+ years.)

Saturday evening outfit.
I LOVE the black glittery TOMS, but I just couldn't get myself to spend the $$ for them. I went to Target Saturday morning and spotted (and purchased) these shoes. They fit the bill ($10) and my love for sparkly things. I'm a happy girl.
I'll probably wear this ensemble to school soon.
