Friday Haircut & No Makeup Talk

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. Speaking of makeup v. no makeup…check out this blog post that shows before and after transformations by Russian makeup artist Vadim Andreev .

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

    Your hair natural looks so pretty! I love not worrying about straightening my hair in the summer and just letting it be. And I usually don’t like wearing make-up. But If I do I’ll just brush my face with some powder and use some eyeliner and blush.

    I’m the exact same when it comes to my makeup staples! I always wear under eye concealer since I have reasonably dark circles no matter how long I sleep. It makes a huge difference!

    I like the wavy look! I wear blush and mascara almost every day but as a teacher and avid exerciser, I’m constantly moving around and I think it all sweats off by the end of the day.

    I just got my hair done on Friday after about 6 months since my last cut/color! It was MUCH needed and I’m really happy with how it turned out! Love how wavy your hair is and your new cut looks great on you! 🙂

    I’m the same about makeup… maybe some mascara and concealer, but unless I’m specifically going out for an occasion, I keep it simple!

    No make-up for me.
    I agree with Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine. Your hair natural is beautiful!

    I love your natural wavy hair. But you look beautiful no matter how you style it.

    I don’t ever wear a lot of makeup but most days I’m like you…under eye concealer, and mascara (because I have the world’s smallest eyelashes), and blush when I remember.

    I love no makeup days, but I also love wearing makeup on the weekends, when I get to dress up and go out. I typically always put mascara on though during the week and that’s about it. Hard to wear makeup when you are training and teaching clients. I am a being MAC fan.
