My body needed a rest day so I took one. I turned my alarm off before I went to bed, but somehow still managed to wake up at 6:30. Luckily I was able to roll over and get a little more sleep before Derek’s alarm went off and it was really time to start the day. I think Maddie appreciated the extra sleep as well. She was still buried under the covers by my feet (her favorite sleeping spot) when it was time to get up. Sleep is good!
Bed -> Shower -> Breakfast
I had a little fun with this morning’s eggs. I gave my two scrambled eggs a mediterranean flair with some roasted red pepper, artichoke hearts, and feta. Olives would have been really good with this too!
With a side of apple slices and the last of my Trader Joe’s Almond Butter with sea salt. I need to make another trip to Trader Joe’s ASAP to stock up on more!
After getting my bangs cut on Wednesday, I couldn’t wait to attempt doing them on my own this morning. Thanks to all of your great bangs tips, I made sure to dry/ flat iron the bangs almost as soon as I got out of the shower. Once the bangs were dry, I ate breakfast and let the rest of my hair dry on its own with a little mousse worked in(LOVE how much faster my hair dries at the shorter length). When my hair was dry, I took a pea-sized dab of Aveda Control Paste and kind of went crazy twisting my hair this way and that with the paste for a messy look. Then I took a curling iron to it to define the curls I twisted.
Here’s the end result:
I always feel more “me” with messy/curly hair over straight hair. I think it fits my personality a little more because I tend to be a little messier/untamed just like my hair. Plus, it’s just fun.
I really need to work on taking better self portraits in the bathroom. I feel like whenever I do it, all I get is the phone. Tips?
How do you usually wear your hair? Straight? Curly? Messy? Ponytail exclusively?
