Turtleneck, Argyle and Sephora’s VIB Holiday Event

Below is what I wore yesterday. It’s sweater wearing season here and I can’t seem to get enough of them, especially turtlenecks.

Turtleneck (R W & Co.). Pants (Gap). Jacket (Jacob). Boots (Browns).

This is what I wore today. I was inspired by another blogger to layer a turtleneck underneath my short-sleeved argyle sweater. This is a great way to keep warm and still wear a short-sleeved sweater in the cold. Here you have it:

Sweater (Jacob). Turtleneck (R W & Co.). Jeans (Gap). Shoes (Aldo). Bracelet (Stella & Dot, Coach). Watch (Guess).

A quick update, I want to thank everyone for their incredibly sweet and kind comments regarding my post about my friend George. I love reading your comments, please keep them coming.

This past Sunday was my first day back at work in 6 weeks. I felt a bit rusty, but all in all things went well. My chest pain stayed away and I managed to work my full 12 hour shift. On Monday morning, I woke up with head congestion and a sore throat. I’m so glad I went to work on Sunday :(. Anyways I saw my specialist yesterday for my follow up and she told me that I will feel some chest pain as this new virus is causing havoc in my chest, but she is happy with my progress. I must continue taking my meds for another 2 months but she said that I am on my way to recovering fully :). Great news!!!! Unfortunately she was right!!! My chest pain came back yesterday with a vengeance. I guess my cold is irritating the sac around my heart. I’m feeling tired and sick but I’m hoping to be on the mend by this weekend. Back to work for this girl on Saturday and Sunday.

Another positive note, the rodents have been taken care of. We had the Pest Detectives come out yesterday and the guy found where our little friends were getting in and out of the house. That has since been sealed off. We have put more traps in our attic and have put bait stations around our house to see how many rats are around. We are hoping that this will take care of our rodent problem. The guy felt quite positive that we will be able to resolve this issue. He also reassured us that this is no where the worst case he has ever seen. Thank God!!!!

So things are finally on the upside. Well at least everything but my health. Let’s hope after I shake this cold that I’ll also be on the mend!!!

Last Thursday, my friend Kathryn and I headed to Sephora for their VIB Holiday Event. I apologize ahead of time for not taking more pictures. I’m still getting used to the idea of blogging and taking pictures, but I did manage to take a couple. We had an amazing time. The girl’s at the Coquitlam Center location were awesome. A great big thank to Athena who was patient with me and helped me find the perfect new lip stick for the holiday :). Below are pictures of Kathryn and I before and after. My before has me already with some makeup on, I forgot to take the picture beforehand).
