Now more then ever I am finding that it is super important to keep up with my skincare routine. I am home like the rest of us, drinking more than I have in the past, not eating my normal healthy meals and of course eating way more dessert (which I actually enjoy) than I have in the past. I have moments of extreme motivation with my workouts and yoga but overall not excercising as consistently as I would like to…..Oh well, it’s SHELTER IN get out of exercise for FREE card.
Ahhh where do I even start with my hair ;((( EEEkkkk it’s the first time in my life I actually wish I wasn’t a blonde (ok I don’t actually mean that lol). I have decided that my color is out of my hands…nothing that can be done about it for the next month or so. I decided to concentrate (on mastering the top knot lol) and keeping my hair healthy with treatments.
Now, more than ever, it’s ALL about the dry shampoo! Ha! Why wash everyday? Unless you are Zooming all day while on conference calls, you are probably doing what I am doing, right? Washing your hair every 3 days or so? In between those washes, use dry shampoo! It’s been around and going strong since the 70’s for a very good reason! Remember all those elaborate hair styles in the 60’s? Women would go to the salon and get their hair style done for the week and maintain it with dry shampoo (or baby powder) until they could see their stylist again. I have been using it for years and I am not quite sure what I would do without it!
While we are all cozy at home, I decided this would be the perfect time to go through my makeup drawer! Dun dun duuuun!! I know this is a daunting task…trust me, I am with you! Did you know that makeup expires!? Yup, it has an expiration date just like the can of tuna that’s been sitting in the back of your pantry for who knows how long!? LOL. Will that tuna still be edible this time next year, probably, but why risk it? Same thing goes for makeup! That blush that you’ve had since you went on vacation two years ago…time to get rid of it! So start cleaning out your makeup drawer!
Also, take this time to practice because practice really does make perfect! I have been using this amazing Urban Decay palette to practice my smokey eye. Practicing your makeup is actually a great way to take your mind off of what’s going on in the world and well, make yourself photo ready for your next selfie. My Husband said to me, “where are you going”? after I had finished my smokey eye. I said I was going to Instagram…lol! Happy practicing! Below are some of my favorite easy all in one eye shadow palettes:
I am not sure about you all but boy of boy, now more than ever, I am in need of some major R&R, skincare and self care! It’s been such a stressful week filled with uncertainty for all of us.
For me, and I’m sure for most of you, the new “normal” starts today. The next few weeks of quarantine are going to be about homeschooling, reconnecting with loved ones and filling those empty slots of time with things you enjoy to do! Whether it’s Facetiming an old friend or reading that book that’s been sitting on your shelf for months…take a little time for yourself!
I am going to dive into my self care routine. These eye masks are everything and so easy to use while working relaxing. I like to put them on after the shower, before coffee and let them stay on while I sip my hot cup of joe and plan the day. Whether you are tired, puffy or just need the hydration, there are plenty of eye patches that will do the trick. Below are a few of my favorite brands that can be delivered straight to your home. Stay safe and healthy!
