Dress Week: Old Summer Gems and Health Pains.

I woke up with huge pain in my ears yesterday, after a shaky night of sleep. I didn't make too much of it, blaming it on the bad night of sleep and the change in the weather. Plus I thought I was maybe catching a cold. But by the time lunch hit, I was still in pain and I was hot. My fever was pretty high. Later in the afternoon, I was able to get some over-the-counter ear-drops so finally I purchased some and in about 40 minutes I felt a huge change in my pain. But I knew that I'd have to do something about it, I had to see a specialist. A few hours later in the middle of the night, my one ear started causing me a lot of pain. Whatever over-the-counter pain-killers I had weren't really doing the trick. I suffer from migraines so every now and then I have some awful migraine where my entire head hurts. Bus I swear this pain was worse, quite worse. The only thing I could compare it to was labor/child-birth. I had heard before that ear-aches are the worst but in 3 decades of my life I hadn't experienced one until now. They suck ass - let me tell you.

Finally this morning I went in to see the doctor. Well, both of my ears are infected, especially one of them. I am now taking some other ear-drops, nasal drops, antibiotics, pain-killers and vitamins. I am due for another visit tomorrow, because she wanted to see my improvement in 24 hours. She basically covered up one of my ears with stuff (to clean it and let it heal and such) so I feel pretty deaf now. The good thing is that I was told it will get better and I will have my ears and my normal hearing back. But as I am typing this I am very frazzled and drugged up. So yeah, this was supposed to be Dress Week and like 90% of the time I don't schedule posts ahead so I don't have my photos or a post ready today for you. But since this is mostly a style blog, I decided to check out some old pictures and Facebook photos so today I am showing you some Summer Dresses, all worn around 2008-2011. You will see some different hair-styles and hair colors too. Enjoy them!

And one more thing, early this morning since I couldn't sleep due to the awful pain and before I was all stuffed with meds, I was playing around my blog because I do want to achieve a fresher, cleaner look. This is my most favorite header thus far. I will be working on a new button also, and hopefully some links where you can find certain posts easier, as well as an "About Me" section. Let me know what you think of the changes so far. Thanks for reading and Happy Hump Day!

This was worn on May 2010. I went for a girls night out to watch the premiere of "Sex and the City 2". My Dress is by Bebe. Ohh and it was the Summer of my Blonde days.
This was for Dinner, Dancing & Drinking with my Cousins in Windsor - Ontario, Canada in August 2009. This Mellow Yellow, Tiered Dress is by Express and it happens to be one of my Favorite Dresses.
My most Favorite Maxi Dress here was worn at my Cousin's Summer Wedding in July 2011, exactly 3 years ago today so Happy Anniversary to my Cousin ans his wife! This Silk-blend Dress is by White House Black Market and the picture doesn't do justice to the Dress.
This is from April 2008, for a Fancy Event I went to with my Husband, in Michigan. This Silk Gold+Black, Paisley-Print Dress is Gorgeous; it is by Arden B. It is actually a Halter Style. The whole ruffle comes behind my neck.
Another Yellow Dress. This is 100% Silk by The Limited and I wore it for lunch with a friend down-town Royal Oak (one of my favorite cities in Michigan), in June 2010.
This Deep Red Petal, Strapless Cocktail Dress was worn in June 2010 to one of my friend's wedding. And yep my hair got even lighter as the Summer progressed.

So, which 1 or 2 of these Dresses are your favorites? I love the Tiered Yellow Dress, the Maxi Dress and the Tiered Red Dress the best.

Happy Hump Day Beautiful Ladies!! Thank you for reading and send some positive vibes my way. Thanks so much. =)
