1. I wouldn't dare to disparage bitsandbobbins' genius, but you wouldn't catch me dead in bleach-spot/acid-wash jeans. I'm just not hip enough. I like the rest of the outfit. Fun colors and proportions.
2. I change the profile pic periodically. I like to see if anyone notices! This picture is my attempt to convince the world that I am not vain. Is it working?
3. I cut my bangs every few weeks. I was starting to feel like my hair was taking over my face, so I gave them another trim. I usually tire of the straight bangs after a few days and start pushing them to the side again.

I was going to comment on the bags too! I like them pushed to the side much better, you have such a pretty face...show it off!

By the way, I LOVE this shirt. I wish I owned it because seeing you pair it with so many things gives me such good ideas...but no shirt!

Keep up the great blog!

The Navy and Coral version is my favourite so far.

I definitely noticed the profile picture change and thought it was cute. I was reassured to see you don't ALWAYS look as perfectly groomed and presented as you look in your daily photos...

Well, this has nothing to do about your clothing, but I was wondering if you also dye your eyebrowns since you are naturally a blonde. You look really good as a redhead, by the way.

I am always surprised at the things y'all notice.

My eyebrows are naturally a very light brown. I dye them when I color my hair. I squirt a small amount of the mixed dye into a plastic cup and apply it with a paintbrush. I apply the dye to my brows before I color my hair and then wipe/rinse it off right before I rinse the dye from my head (so my brows get the full processing time).

In the shower, I exfoliate the area with a facial scrub to remove as much of the dyed skin as possible. Still, I have sort of a halo around my brows for the first day after dyeing.

Most salons will not dye your brows because it is considered dangerous. As most dye formulas are now "non-drip," I've never had even the slightest threat of dye dripping into my eyes.

I also use the Clinique eybrow pencil in "auburn" to fill them in and keep them red, even as the brow hairs shed before my next coloring.
