I've been doing some reading and online shopping in between episodes of The Layover on Netflix. Oh, and napping. Some serious napping.
First, I finished off Lost on Planet China by J. Maarten Troost, and as usual Troost doesn't disappoint. He spent a year traveling all over China from the buzzing urban centers to far flung corners. I think I can safely say that if ever have an opportunity to visit China, I hope it's one of the far flung places. I don't do well with crowds, and in the most populous country in the world...LOTS of crowds.
I've been eyeballing this brand for a while now since I have a habit of buying cheap ballet flats that quickly fall apart. I wanted to step up my ballet flat game since I wear these babies to work nearly every day. Of the 50% off pairs, I really wanted the bright red patent ones, but since they were out of stock, I went with the gold metallic stingrays. Sounds fancy, eh? And a little bit gawdy. Just the way I like 'em.
What are you up to today?
