Happy Monday everyone! I hope you will link up at the bottom of the post - no rules - you don't have to follow me, link your post to me, or have written a weekend recap. Whatever you wrote about today, link it up here and make new friends!
Nick and I had dinner with another couple on Saturday night. I was responsible for dessert so I made cinnamon roll cake from scratch. I think it turned out really well. Nick kept ravings about it. Thanks, sweetie!
The church Nick and I attend is celebrating 25 years. Yesterday they had a comedian in named Jonnie W. He was pretty good. Here's a sampling...
I went back to blonde with weekend!
What do you think? I'm using purple shampoo to help with the orange and brassiness. Any other suggestions on how to counter act this?
I had wanted to try the clothing website eShakti out for awhile so I was super excited when I was approached by the company to receive a free dress in exchange for a review. For those of you not familiar with eShakti, they are an international fashion design company that makes custom clothing. The offer both style and fit customization for women size 0 through 36. Basically you pick a style that you like and customize by giving them your measurements, choosing the length, and adding or subtracting sleeves. I was super excited when the dress I picked arrived!
I was super excited about this chambray dress I picked out because of how many ways I'd be able to style it. It looks great on hanger, but I was super disappointed when I put it on. First thing I noticed is that material was really thin - like you could straight up see my bra and panties through it thin - basically making it unwearable. The next thing I disliked was the length. I was under the impression that it would hit right above the knee. I even gave them my height! The hem ended up about an inch below my knee and just looked really awkward. I also found that the button whole in the back was really impossible to use. I think the loop was made too small. You have to undo the button to get this dress on and frankly it's really not worth the hassle.
I loved the chambray, the sash, and the embroidery at the bottom, and the racer back style top, but only on the hanger. It was complete mess once I put it on. I was super sad because other girls reviews were really good and they were in love with the dress the received. Wish this would have turned out better because it's a lovely dress on the hanger.
In better fashion news I did pick the this really cute pair of leggings from my local Meijer.
Can't wait to rock these with a chambray shirt or sweater and moccasins! What do you think?
Have a great week everyone!
