Cinderella Shoes

I received an L.L. Bean gift card from my mother-in-law for my birthday in February. Me being me, I wasn’t about to buy something outdoorsy and practical like, say, a pair of hiking shoes or a tent. No, no! I picked up a pair of slippers and some cute little kitten heels that look like Cinderella’s glass slipper. Practical I am not.

So I’m trying this new thing where I actually style my hair from time to time. Crazy! On this particular day I let it air dry, straightened my bangs (I always do this), then used a large barrel curling iron on a few pieces throughout my hair. I was feeling like Tammy Taylor, from Friday Night Lights, all day. She’s my hair idol.

Do you have a hair idol? I just want her perfectly styled, but not toooo styled, golden mane of amazingness every day.

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.

    I love those shoes and their adorable bows! and don’t worry about not being practical– L.L. Bean Signature would take up any L.L. Bean gift card I got too.
