I can finally use the phrase I need X like I need a hole in the head - because with these two new ones in my ears, I'm all full up of the necessary holes. lol.
I had pierced my ears at the mall once when I turned 13 and got the most horrible infections. I had been seriously put off ever piercing ever since. But how about this? I turned 13 on Friday the 13th, and I will turn 30 this Friday the 13th, '13. Time to try again! But this time we went to a place listed in the Association of Professional Piercers, an organization dedicated to top-notch sterilization in an autoclave, use of implant-grade metals, and general expertise in piercing. My piercer, Ron, was super patient, answered all my paranoid questions, and did an amazing job. I highly recommend the APP for finding top-notch piercers.
In other news, my Nordies Employee Discount order arrived today, and most everything is going back (still no light colored dress pants for me!), but how about this blouse? Even with my discount, it was not a cheap shirt, but the silk is of amazing quality, and I love the wrinkle-and-tummy-disguising print and colors. The downside would be that it has a sort of bell sleeve that cannot be rolled or scrunched. I am pretty set on keeping it, but this is one item I had been stalking since it first came out... please talk me down if it is not perfect. I've added a lot of nice things this year, and it won't kill me to pass if it isn't a 10.
Thank you for your time - I have been scarce here because of splitting up birthday time between different people, but I have been YLF-stalking you all!
