Holiday Shopping with The Body Shop

Wednesday, December 13, 2017


I'm always on the lookout for high quality and ethical places to shop. When I discovered The Body Shop, I was elated. They do not test on animals and they're 100% vegetarian.

The majority of my best lady friends are the kinds of people that don't live the "treat yo self" lifestyle, so I thought this Christmas would be the perfect opportunity to treat my friends to some beauty products to make their skin glow as much as they do!

Below are some items I selected that will be perfect for that person:

Casanova, baby

I bought this dress over the summer and somehow never wore it. I meant to take it to California, but it didn't make my tiny carry on. We've had some crazy warm days and I am not one to waste a 55 degree day in December. So, I shaved my legs and put on a "summer" dress. I've never tried wearing a long dress in the colder months, but I think I might need to try it more often.

As you can tell, I've been living in this leather jacket and no, I don't intend to stop.

Sealed to me

I've never shopped at Old Navy before and had little expectations. So, imagine my surprise when I found this great dress in the kids section. It was on sale for $7, so, obviously I had to buy it. My friends laugh at me for wearing kids clothes, but let me tell you, they fit perfectly. A kids XL is an adult small and I highly recommend checkin' out the kids section for a larger and cheaper selection. Plus the prints are so much better!

I've had a few extra days off for the holiday and it's been so nice. I've been utilizing that time to drink extra amounts of coffee, staying up late, and not setting alarms. It's been a real dream.

More than that

Oh dear sweet blog, I've missed you. It's hard to keep blogging when no one reads blogs and I feel completely uninspired by my wardrobe. My boyfriend has been working so much and I don't trust myself with his fancy camera on a tripod. I've missed taking photos, I have. But I've also had this weird feeling of disgust every time I saw a photo of myself lately. I've spent most of my life documenting my outfits/face in pictures, so the feeling was strange and new to me. I'm not sure I'm back to normal, but I'm certainly trying.

This outfit isn't ground breaking or exciting after a month long break, BUT it's exciting to me because a) my fav band and b) I have never worn a skirt this shape. I've resisted skirts like these forever, but while on the hunt for a blue skirt to wear with this shirt, I found this in the depths of a hundred random thrift store skirts. I wasn't sure it would work, but it was my size. I snatched it up and ya' know what? I absolutely love it. I have a feeling this skirt will make its way into a lot of my daily outfits. This is also a new band shirt and while it's gigantic on me -- I am in love with the design. One of my favorite band t-shirts in a long time. I know some people find black and blue to be a taboo color combo, but I have always loved the Backstreet Boys, okay?

I've been going to shows non-stop, drinking all the coffee, and whining about being cold. So, basically...nothing out of the ordinary for me.
