You may not be able to smell this through your computer screen, but in these pics I absolutely reek of oil of oregano. Matt was sick all last week and as it often happens with couples, I ended up getting his nasty bug too. I’ve been getting little drops of oil of oregano put down my throat every few hours by my roomie (I just sit like a bird with my mouth open and she drops them into the back of my throat and then I gag violently and try not to vomit…if that’s not a testament to how good a friend she is, I don’t know what is). It is hands down the most disgusting thing I’ve ever tasted and it stinks forever but despite still feeling like poop today, I think it’s speeding along the cold’s run (it’s day 3 and I’m already in extreme cough mode). It better work at any rate, because I am a miserable person to be around when I’m sick. I generally just cough pathetically while taking up the whole couch and whine “Whyyyy did this happen to meeeee?!” again and again. And again.

Oh PS just wanted to share this lovely feature A&H Magazine did on me – thanks again to the team there for the feature!

Hope you all had a lovely (and hopefully cold-free) weekend!

    I loved that visual of your roommate giving you your medicine. It's awesome to have finds like that! I am very similar when I get sick- it's no fun to feel so bad. I hope you get to feeling better soon!

    Loved you in the magenta pants and your accessories were spot-on (and I love the manicure!) Details on the necklace? Where did you get it?

    Love these colors together. Those pants are awesome! My mom used to make me take oil of oregano when I was a kid. It totally works! I used it for cold sores too – dab a couple drops & it goes away in no time! Amazing stuff, that oregano, but suuuper gross that's for sure!

  20. 6.25.12

    Poor you! Nothing worse than being sick, in the summer especially! Hugs to you. Hope you will feel better soon and enjoy the long weekend ahead!

  21. 6.25.12

    You must have created this posting well before you go sick because you look healthy and great in it. I hope you feel better soon.

    P.S. Love the soft curls in your hair.

    Sorry to hear that you're sick. Lots of tea always helps me 🙂 & watching old cartoons.

    You look great in this! I like the color combo here. I usually get stumped with what to wear with some color bottoms and wear a neutral white, black, etc but this is a great idea!

    Oh no pally – not oil of oregano! That stuff is the worst! Hope at least that it helps you feel better, because it's pretty much torture either way 🙁 At least you are looking as lovely as ever in spite of feeling under the weather. I love all of the pink shades in this look (although I'd be much too afraid to wear them all myself – especially together!) and! Your hair! It's curly! I've been searching for a decent curling iron for ages, and yours obviously works miracles 😉 Do tell.

    Miss you tons!

  26. 6.25.12

    You would never know you're sick in these pictures. You look totally gorgeous (like always). I'm in love with this colour combination. The pants are perfecto! XO

    Judging by these photos, I would have no idea that you were feeling under the weather- you still look as beautiful as ever! I probably wouldn't have the guts to wear pink on pink, but you made it look amazing with the touches of tan and it pairs so well with your hair colour & tan!

    Hope you have a great week, and that everything is going well in Toronto!!

    P.s. I'm giving away a clutch with gorjana on the blog this week & I think you'd like it- would love if you swung by to enter!

    you're hilarious girl! i could almost catch a whiff – baha! well, it's good you two are finally feeling better. not surprising though, i think big life changes like yours take their toll on the body and mind in all sorts of ways, one being getting sick. boo hiss to that!

    you look beautiful Alex, love seeing you strolling along those city streets with brick townhouses in the background. fab shots! adore the magenta jeans, they're rad! xo ♥
