Sixty-eighth day of work selfie

I’m all pretty in pink today.  Is it too much?  Well if it is, I don’t care.  I got this dress at Car Free Day on Denman Street a couple weekends ago.  They had it in other colours, but the pink one was the most vibrant and just felt right for summer.  The purple tank top I’m wearing under it is from Smart Set.  My pink sweater is from the Plenty warehouse sale at the Vancouver Convention Centre on Easter weekend.  I know it’s hot, but when I’m in the office, the temperature is more regulated so I don’t really notice the heat or humidity until I go outside.  Maybe I should just leave a sweater in my office, since I don’t really need one when I’m outside before or after work.  

I’ve been buying a lot of fancy jewellery lately.  I got this necklace at Greek Day on Broadway yesterday.  I have a similar one in blue that I got from Payless and I got complimented on it, so I thought I’d buy another necklace in that style.  I bought a pair of matching earrings as well, but they are kind of heavy so I didn’t wear them.  I knew they were heavy when I bought them, but I really wanted a matching set.  Maybe next time, I will just wear them briefly for photos and then take them off.  Instead, I decided to wear my pink flip flop earrings which are more lightweight.  I got my shiny bracelet from Car Free Day on Main Street a couple weekends ago.  I somehow didn’t have a pink or purple bracelet to pair with this outfit.  We’ll have to change that soon.  

I love this purple ring that I got at Greek Day yesterday.  But it’s kind of tight.  I didn’t realize until afterwards how tight it is.  And I got a second ring in this size too.  The guy selling them told me it would be okay because my fingers would be less swelled up in the morning when I put on the ring.  But contrary to that, I felt like my fingers were actually more swelled up this morning and the ring felt even tighter.  I tried on the ring on my left hand just to see the difference, and my ring finger on that hand is somehow fatter.  I couldn’t even get the ring off, so I concluded that I must be married to myself now.  I managed to remove it using some lotion.  Is it possible to lose weight in your finger?  Is that a thing?  Maybe tight rings are like a corset for your finger?  I don’t want to hurt myself though.  But I feel like my finger fluctuates in terms of swelling throughout the day, because sometimes I feel like the ring maybe fits and other times I’m like nope, this is definitely way too tight.  I wonder if the guy will let me exchange them.  Except he doesn’t have a physical store and I don’t know what event he’ll be at next.  What a fail.   Maybe I’ll have to find someone who has a more slender finger than I do and bestow a lovely gift upon them.  Or sell it because I paid good money for it.  And also find someone who likes heavy earrings.  Or just keep everything and suffer through the discomfort because beauty is pain.

Twenty-third day of work selfie

I got this bright pink dress from La Vie En Rose Aqua at Richmond Centre.  Because I love buying dresses from lingerie & swim stores.  This was my first time wearing it.  The purple jacket is from the Plenty warehouse sale I went to at the Vancouver Convention Centre on Easter long weekend.  I like that it has a side diagonal zipper as opposed to one straight down the front.  The colourful scarf is from one of the scarf vendors at the UBC student union building and my earrings are from Claire’s.  There’s a possibility that I was beginning to run out of new matching outfits by this point, because these aren’t normally colours that I would pair together.  But I’d like to think that I made it work. 

Happy Easter

So I don’t actually know if this post will end up being about Easter or not.  I don’t really know what it’s going to be about, didn’t plan it really.  But it’s rare that I ever had a set out plan as to how anything will go.  But it happens to be Easter Sunday today, so I figured “Happy Easter” would be an appropriate title.

People don’t really write Easter cards or Easter letters to people, do they?  That’s never been a thing, right?  Not like Christmas.  But then I never send Christmas cards or Christmas letters to people either.  In the past I’ve expressed my dislike of those generic Christmas letters that people send out to friends and family.  Imagine if they sent those out for Easter as well, detailing how the first three months of the new year have been for them so far.

I kind of set a goal for myself, that I would stop putting off certain things I’ve been neglecting and try to be more decisive about things once Easter came around.  Easter seemed like a good time, spring is here, the sun is shining.  Actually I don’t know what that has to do with anything really.  But oh well.  I know people usually set these sort of goals for the new year, but clearly that didn’t happen.  This year didn’t exactly start out as great as it could have.

And then I watched that 30 Rock episode about leap day, where they said “real life is for March”.  And I thought, yeah, real life is for March, come March, I will get my shit together, pursue things, stop being so lazy.  But that didn’t happen either.  So I thought maybe I’d wait for April.  But that would mean starting April 1st.  And clearly that would just be a joke.  So Easter it was.

On another note, I just watched a commercial where a guy in it sort of had a mullet.  And I feel I need to share with you the fact that there was a guy at church with a mullet.  It wasn’t a full on mullet, it was fairly weak.  But it was a mullet nevertheless.  He was there on Good Friday and then again today.  I think that may have been one of the highlights of my Easter.  Because how often do you see a guy with a mullet nowadays?  Not that you’d want to.  I don’t think he’s a regular church goer.  But maybe he’ll be back next Easter?  Or maybe Christmas.  But who knows what hairstyle he’ll be rocking then.

I think I just diverged from the whole point of my post.  But actually I didn’t have a point to this post.  Except to wish everyone Happy Easter I guess.  Maybe I should have just written a blog post about mullets.  That might have been more entertaining.  But there’s no turning back now.  Though I guess I could just delete this and start over.  But then I would have wasted my time.  And that’s something I’m trying to do less of right now.  I’m also trying to stop second guessing myself so much.  But then I wonder if that’s really a good idea.

Anyway, if you celebrate Easter, then I wish you a Happy Easter!  And if you don’t, then I wish you a good day off tomorrow.  And if you have to work tomorrow, then I wish you happy time and a half.  Wait, do you get time and a half tomorrow?  You should.  If you don’t, then I’m sorry.  Have some Easter candy to make yourself feel better.  It should be on sale by tomorrow.

Doesn't this bunny look like it's humping the egg?
