I don’t have any recipe to share with you today. Craig was out of town last night- he flew out to St. Louis, MO yesterday, so I just ate leftovers- a big ol’ salad 😀 He’s back tonight….& I can’t wait! Sounds pathetic, I know, but I really do miss him…even when he’s gone for a night.
It just so happened that I had my hair appointment scheduled for last night too. It kind of worked out..and I didn’t even plan it that way. Love when things like that happen. My friend Kayla, who does my hair (she’s the one that owns the salon – Studio K) was not too pleased with my decision to continue to wear hair extensions after she originally cut it. There are actually two little bald spots behind each of my ears, from where they clip in. They are just from always wearing the extensions- they just pull on my scalp when I have them in all day. She asked me why I decided to keep wearing them. I told her I was doing good for a few weeks, but then I REALLY missed the long hair, so I put the extensions in.
I was just being honest with her. She is determined to get me to stop wearing them. She asked me what it would take. I just told her that I was limited on different styles, and I just needed help with how I can wear it different ways. As I told her, I am hair retarded! I really just cannot think of different cute ways to wear it. Maybe I need to Google some different looks. She definitely had a BUNCH of ideas & I can’t wait to try them! One of them was this—>
(NO photoshopping done/ limited make up, so excuse the ‘end of the day look’ 😉 )
It’s like a wavy/ curly kind of style. I LOVE it. She did the curls with a straightener & then kind of combed them out. She also taught me how to curl my hair with the straightener….but that will definitely take time, thank goodness for curling irons in the mean time 🙂
This whole thing got me thinking…I don’t think I’ve ever shared my typical daily routine with you. Honestly, it’s not too exciting, that’s why I love reading other tips for skin care & make up. Here are a few things about me 😀
That would be me in glasses 🙂 I put these on at night…otherwise I’m in my contacts. (& yes, my eyes really are blue…people always ask me that when they find out I wear contacts)
^that would be my DISASTER of a make up bag.
Here’s a confession. I really have NO idea how to put make up on. Ok, I mean I know the basics, but I don’t know how to pick out eye shadow, or blush, or any of the ‘cool’ stuff. I think it’s because my Mom never really wore make up, just for special occassions & she told all of us girls that it was better to just be natural. I didn’t even own any sort of make up until high school! Actually it wasn’t even until 10th grade.
Here’s another confession– the FIRST time that I have EVER bought lipstick (like legitamate lipstick, not lip gloss, or chap stick) was RIGHT before Christmas!! (yes, Christmas of 2010!) I still never wear it, I only wore it a few times in Maryland. I just have no idea on how to pick out the right color..or what shade goes with what. I always think I’ll end up looking like a clown. I’m COMPLETELY clueless!! Haha 😀
One thing I am pretty good at, if I do say so myself, is doing my nails 🙂 I LOVE all types of shades- including one of my favorites, black!
I’m actually ok with not having any idea of how to pick out make up. I guess since I really never learned how, I don’t know what I’m missing. I think another thing that doesn’t make me care about make up is that Craig always tell me that he really likes me just natural…with no make up.
I’ll just say it’s a good thing that I can hire someone to do my make for my wedding 😉 And, yes, I’m having a ‘natural look.’ 🙂
I do have ONE thing that I can recommend for skin care- this lotion —>
It’s Johnson & Johnson lotion! Yes, the stuff you can buy at Target! I have found this lotion works SO MUCH BETTER than any other lotion. I LOVE the stuff & the scent is a light & fresh scent…nothing too strong. I actually think it’s baby lotion. It makes your skin sooooo very soft, and it stays that way all day!
Oh, and absolute FAVORITE daily product is my Sonicare toothbrush. I’ve used a regular toothbrush for years…but then I was introduced to this & forever my toothbrush will be a Sonicare toothbrush! 😀
This baby is the BEST! I have noticed SUCH a difference between a regular toothbrush, & now using this. It is TOTALLY worth the money. My dental check ups have been much better too. The dentist definitely knows when you switch your toothbrush, I swear they have a radar or something for these toothbrushes 🙂
Anyways, hope you have enjoyed learning about some of my daily routine 🙂 Now, I have to know, what’s one thing that you use daily that you just LOVE??
Have a great day! 😀 Don’t forget, it’s a BRAND NEW ‘The Office’ tonight on NBC! WOOOHOOOO!
