The horrible storm that has hit Alabama left gorgeous weather in its wake. Seriously, today might be the most beautiful day I have seen in AL since living here. So I took advantage of the blue skies and mid 60's with a pair of linen pants and a linen scarf. I'm going for easy-breezy. It's days like today I wish I lived somewhere that you could walk everywhere.
After taking these pictures I shimmied into Sephora to play around. I hadn't been in there in a while and my little Sephora now has NARS and is getting MUFE soon! I scoped out the Korres counter and then moved on to the Sephora brand lipsticks. I didn't realize it, but I was looking for a neon pink and I found it. Although I didn't purchase it, I'm definitely in love. I want it, but not sure I have anywhere to wear it?
I just wanted to say a special thank you to all of you who have emailed, tweeted, and texted regarding our safety. We are so blessed to be safe and without damage to our town. You definitely count your blessings when hundreds around you have lost their life or their home and over a million are without power for the next few days. The county we live in was hit hard - a large tornado came through and five were killed in this county alone. Luckily, we are on the opposite side of the county. The majority of what you are seeing on tv is about an hour north of us - in Tuscaloosa.
I don't know how much the national channels are showing, but the local channels have been showing so much coverage in northern AL all day long. I'd be lying if I said I haven't shed some tears - it's impossible not to. Seeing entire neighborhoods demolished and unrecognizable (within minutes), seeing grown men and women sobbing as they speak on their experience yesterday, and to see an entire herd of cows pop up on the golf course really gets to you. Then to hear about lost pets... ugh. I can't handle it.
I'd ask that all of you send prayers to this state - and the entire southern area as AL wasn't the only state hit. And... if you have a couple dollars to spare, it would be awesome for you to call (334) 420- 0212 to donate to the American Red Cross.
