(Note to self: remember to hit publish button before walking away from the computer. Sorry this didn’t actually post last night.)
So, I realized something today. Recently, I’ve been really slacking in the, we’ll call it, “personal upkeep” area. Now, that’s not to say, I’m looking like a scumbag, showing up to work dressed like a bum, but I don’t really remember when the last time I put on make-up to go to work was. Jewelry? Ha! Matching clothes are accessories enough.
I’ve never been a high maintenance girl. I’ve always thought those girls who get up 2 hours early so their hair can be perfect and they can cake on their make-up are absolutely ridiculous. At the same time though, I feel much more “pulled together” when my hair is done and I’ve got a bit of make-up on. I’m wondering if my recent slacking isn’t partially to blame for my blah moods. I’m just not feeling/ looking as good as I could.
So, in an attempt to improve my moods, I’m challenging myself to pull it together for the next week. What does this mean? Basic make-up every day, at least one accessory, and no ponytails. I’m not going to give myself anymore time to get ready; I just need to manage my time in the morning more efficiently.
In some ways, I feel like I’m contradicting myself by doing this. After all, don’t I believe that inner beauty is what matters most? It is, but I think sometimes having the outter reflect the inner is important too I suppose.
Anyway, moving on the the important stuff…dinner!
In honor of National Pancake Day, I made brinner tonight! (I love brinner!) On tonight’s menu: cinnamon banana pancakes, Trader Joe’s uncured bacon, and some roasted red potatoes.
My friend Nicky came over for dinner last night. After we ate, I colored her hair and we watch Man v. Food. That show is one that both intrigues me and disgusts me. I think it would be awesome to have a job where you travel the countryand eat at all these different places! It’s a foodies dream really. However, the show highligts America’s gluttony at it’s finest. NO ONE needs to drink a 6lb milkshake! I thought I was goig to vomit just watching the host consume this thing!
Anyway, time for bed! See you in the morning for breakfast!
