  1. Well you must be one of the few ladies who can still look gorgeous with swollen cheeks! Your hair is absolutely divine xx

  2. Awww! I had all of my wisdom teeth out at once too. It's usually a quick healing time. I don't know about you, but I was SO loopy after I woke up from the surgery. *lol*
    I love all of your finds. Those purses are amazing and what a great deal too. Your purple shoes are super cute!!

  3. Aw! Poor you! You still look Lovely! I have to get my wisdom teeth taken out two in like a month I am reeeally scared! I love all your finds

  4. You poor doll =( but at least you look fabulous as always and all these goodies are divine!!

  5. Kate O- Awwww Thank you!!!! haha!!!!..thanks to my wonderful mama for doing my hair!!!

    Brittany_Va-VoomVintage- Wow!! Same with me!!! I decided just to take the shots , instead of the "laughing gas" but before I got my surgery they perscribed me with some pills to really relax me... haha!! woah!!! I was soooooo loopy like, I was telling my mom that I love a guy... that I saw on the Newspaper!!I was also singing!!!!! LOL

    Young Vintage Girl- Aww thanks!!! Dont worry, I was freaking out to! But you'll be surprised how quick it goes! But you will be swollen!! Just eat lots of ice cream ;)

  6. Hep Kitten- Aww thanks !!! :D haha!! it was really fun shopping for them!!!

  7. I just purchased a very similar beach purse this week to the one you showed first ("Beauty"). In fact I'm almost positive they were created by the same people because the design, colour, shape and clasp are almost exactly the same. Mine only had a tag saying "1950's vintage" and I'm very curious on who made it? Did your purse have further details? I really wish I could share a picture with you. Great taste in purses! hehehe

  8. Aww, I remember having my wisdom teeth out. It was brutal (and I had 5! There was an extra one hiding out in there :) You totally deserve a shopping spree.

  9. Did they put your under for your teeth? I tried to save money by having one extracted with me on laughing gas, and that was such a dumb decision.
    Laughing gas is no more effective than a sense of apathy.
    Anyway, you look cute with your chipmunk cheeks.

  10. Joellyn- Hey there! no I decided not to.... I decided to just take the shots but they gave me pills that made me loopy and really relaxed. But it was a piece of cake when they took the first two on top...but on the bottom two since my wisdom teeth was right next to a nerve...lets just say PAINFUL!!! they put more numbing shots on my the bottom of my mouth... Aww thanks!!! :D

  11. You're adorable even with swollen cheeks! I have that same straw handbag, only the flowers on mine are purple and pink. It's a great bag, you're going to love it. Mine doesn't leave my side all summer long.
