I went a little crazy at the thrift stores last week (because a true thriftaholic can't resist 50% sales!) so now my wallet (and my feet) are paying the price! These animal print Chinese Laundry sandals, although adorable, are extremely painful as I'm just breaking them in (they still had the price tag on them). After walking for over an hour today my poor tootsies are blistered and aching- good thing my lunching friend had blister bandaids (with special medication so they heal faster!)
On a positive (hey, let's not complain this whole blog post) note, I started a 30 day vegan (whole foods, plant based diet) health tune-up on Saturday with the Wellness Warrior and am feeling so rejuvenated and energetic! This morning I had a green smoothie for breakfast and am more excited about cooking than I've ever been before (I'll share some recipes and photos with you all over the month). As I've blogged about before, animal rights and not supporting factory farming is something I'm very passionate about so this switch from lacto-vegetarian to vegan just seemed like the next natural step for me. I do love me some havarti cheese though so I'll have to let you know how I find the non-dairy substitute!
Although my feet were in pain, there was beauty on my walk-like these aromatic lilacs on the side of the highway. Speaking of lilacs, Lilac Lingerie (where I work part-time as their blogger/stylist) just launched their new website and now you can even shop online!
Now how would you like to walk a
mile hour in my (animal print, animal loving) shoes?
