confessional friday

Happy Friday lovelies!

To start with a follow-up to yesterday's post...I'm officially over 200 followers!! It's so exciting! To celebrate this accomplishment, I will give you (the readers) an extended version of my normal Confessional Friday post.

I know y'all are just on the edge of your seats with anticipation, right? Heh.

//1. I confess that I ate a sweet potato almost every night this week. I'm kind of obsessed with them now. I can't get enough sweet potato.

//2. I confess that I'm a little afraid that I will start to have an orange tinge to my skin if I keep eating sweet potatoes and carrots. This might have had something to do with my fear.

//3. I confess that almost every time I wear my hair up/back, I wear my little faux weavelet to make my ponytail look thicker. (It's a clip-in weft of human hair that I made with the assistance of my sis.)

//4. Speaking of hair, I'm thinking about going close-to-platinum again. With my wintery-pale skin, I kind of want that winter white look. I'm sort of obsessed with this look right now. Here are some ladies who have pulled off the white hair/white skin look well.

//5. I confess that over the last week, my cell phone cover has garnered quite a bit of attention from strangers.

//6. I confess that I've found a ton of new and awesome blogs lately. You can see my blog reading list by clicking here.

//7. I confess that I'm REALLY into these shoes. I kind of need to buy them.

Women's Merona® Bella Genuine Leather Cap Toe Flat - Navy
//8. I confess that when I counted my cardigans this week, I may or may not have arrived at a number greater than 20. [hangs head with shame]

//9. I confess that I'm SUPER excited to be spending Thanksgiving with my sister at her place in Charleston, SC. It's such a BEEYOUTEEFUL city and I have the day after T-giving off work, so I'll get to have some time to hang and chill. I can't wait!

//10. I confess that my clean eating kick may have to take a 1 day hiatus on said holiday. 

//11. I confess that I just started watching Ice Loves Coco and I LOVE IT! Honestly, out of all the celeb couple reality shows, I think they seem the most normal and down-to-earth. 

Well, that's all I have for today. My "extended" version went past the normal 5 confessions...aren't y'all proud? :)

I'm linking up with Leslie for Confessional Friday. Check out the other confessions here.



  1. #2 happened to my son when he was a baby. He LOVED baby food sweet potatoes & carrots and had an orange nose for at least 6 months. Of course, being a baby, he was getting stained with sweet potato from the outside too! I can email a pic, if you want.

    1. HA! The photo might make it even more scary to me! AAAHHH!

    2. Payless has some similar flats in black, leopard, gray, and cream. They aren't leather, so they're cheaper and BOGO right now.

    3. I have the Payless flats in black and they offer NO support. After about ten minutes of walking on them, my feet hurt.

  2. Sometimes I feel like you are my east coast kindred!!!

    I am a sweet potato addict!!! By far my fav healthy food.

    Your cardi collection makes me proud. Hold your head up high!!

    And I love those shoes!! I just bought a pair in nude with a black toe. And they are fergalicious brand ;) LOL hahah!!!

    1. Friend!!

      I need sweet potato recipes. Do you have any good ones?

      I'm jealous of your shoes. I saw those. Now, you'll just have to post pics of you wearing them on instagram, k? :)

  3. Speaking of cell phone covers, I thought you would like this... I picked up this LIly Pultizer case cover-- all pink flamingos: . Have a great weekend!

    1. Oh man. That is awesome. I need it. HAHA!

      Have a great weekend too!

  4. I should totally link up for confessional Friday next week. I rarely post on Fridays and that would prompt me.

    I love the link to your blog roll, I should do that too since I've started reading a lot of new ones through link ups. Yours included!

    And I feel like now I need those shoes too. In green.

    I freaking love Ice loves Coco.

    1. Yes, I love checking out other blogs' "blogroll" or "blogs I love" links because I almost ALWAYS find a new one to follow.

      Yes, the green shoes are my fave, but I'd get more wear out of the navy ones at work. However, how cute would they be at Christmas?!?!

  5. Those shoes are exactly what I have been looking for over the last 2-ish years. I just don't know if I want to shell out $40 for Target shoes.... Tough decisions!

  6. when will you be in the holy city? i have to work the day before thanksgiving (yuck) so you should come by and we can have a fun awkward HEY! :) plus Five Loaves is next door! :)

  7. Congrats on being above 200! I'm not there and still working on it. I have tons of cardigans too!! I love them. I'm always cold and I need one to go with every single possible outfit combo I could wear.


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
