Lots to catch you up on but I’ll start with a quick look at Friday. I forced myself to get out of bed for 6:30 a.m. yoga class. I had meetings all morning and a haircut scheduled for later in the afternoon so I knew that early was my only chance to get it in. Yes, I will plan workouts around haircuts!
I made a smoothie when I got to the gym with spinach, banana, dates, almond butter, mango, strawberry, almond milk and some ice. It was bright green!
Lunch was a salad with mixed greens, arugula, beets, pecans, tomatoes, dried cranberries and goat cheese with a cup of chicken tortilla soup on the side.
Fridays call for lunch dessert so I also had a peanut butter cookie.
The highlight of my day was a hair appointment for a cut and color. It had been FIVE months since I had seen my stylist so the visit was long overdue. I took a before and after to show the difference. I don’t think my hair has been so straight in months. I mentioned this last week but over the course of the summer I kind of gave up on doing anything with my hair and let it air dry and be naturally wavy . I also realized when I took these pictures that I never put on makeup yesterday. It’s definitely been a more relaxed summer for me and it feels good.
I don’t wear a lot of makeup during the week and at work but under eye concealer, blush and mascara are staples. If I do go with a no makeup look I try to at least curl my eyelashes and put on a little blush.

Do you wear makeup every day? Do you feel comfortable wearing no makeup?
