Unplanned hauls are the best kind of hauls. Discuss.
I marched into Forever21 this morning, grabbed a load of summer black clothes and spotted this striped T-shirt dress just as I entered the changing rooms. A flash of doubt went through my mind when I remembered that I already own a similar dress from ASOS but what swung this was that it was a lighter fabric. I tried it on, was wowed that the Small fitted, and promptly decided that I did indeed need two striped dresses in my life.
I also managed to pick up a sack like dress for days when I want to be a slob/dog walking and a white dress for days when I want to get acres of thigh out.
The whole trying on experience was SnapChatted. For those of you still reticent to get on board with SnapChat I want to say that you need to get over this. The "thing" that turned me onto it is when I saw others using it as a way of vlogging their day in a very casual way. There is something very "early YouTube" about it and I hope that scheming marketers don't ruin it too much in the next few months. Anyway, sales pitch over!

Thank you to my nephew George for the photo. He has been staying with us all week on "work experience". Inverted commas.
On a cheesy note, you will notice that I am smiling - full on gnasher baring.
Even after only 3 weeks of braces my teeth have moved to the point where I am no longer horrifically self-conscious. It's only now that I realise just how aware I was of my teeth and how it affected my confidence.
I have a lingual brace on the top (Incognito) and traditional train tracks on the bottom.
My speech has been impacted - mostly by the lingual brace - and I still can't eat hard food. This has made leading meetings a little tricky and eating a little limited. It is however, all totally worth it. If you are thinking about getting orthodontic treatment I would whole-heartedly recommend it.
I hope you have a great Friday. I am about to head out for dinner so I will catch up with you tomorrow!
