Human Pin Cushion

Amongst the people who know me, I'm sort of known as the gal who can't smell. That's exaggerating a little bit, because I can smell some things once in a while, but it's very faint. I've been this way for as long as I can remember so it never occurred to me to figure out why until recently. My doctor seems to think it's caused by allergies so I had to have an allergy workup to figure out what I'm allergic to. That means that I got to have numbers written all over my arms and that I was poked by 41 different needles. As crazy as it sounds, I was surprised with how little it hurt! The urge to itch the spots that reacted was worse than the needle pricks. Anyway, turns out I mostly have indoor allergies which is supposed to be pretty easy to manage. I have a few things to try out so with luck, maybe I'll be able to smell again someday!

So chic as always! I have a soft spot for watches <3 I also have a poor sense of smell too, but I've always told people that since my eyesight is fantastic, there had to be compromise with my design, lol. Good thing you live out in the bay, though, because here in the valley, it's terrible for people with allergies.

LOVE that you paired these Jack Purcells with your skirt. One of my favorite looks! I swear my Converse look better with my skirts than my jeans. :)

I hope you can smell again soon! Oh my goodness, I am one of those weird people that smell EVERYTHING before eating so I can't even imagine not being able to smell!
