Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fun, yet safe St. Patrick's Day weekend! I spent Saturday working a 10 hour shift at one of the restaurants I work at (yes, with no break and serving over 10 tables at a time on two floors!!). I had to be there early that morning so amidst my sleepiness and the rain, I forgot to wear green and was reminded that by every single table. Anyway, I came home, took a long relaxing bath with Lavender and Epsom Salt, felt refreshed, and got ready for our night with friends. Yesterday, we slept in, made breakfast at home and spent the day cleaning together--perhaps it sounds boring, but it was just what we needed. It helped us feel relaxed and ready for this new week.
When it comes to beauty and feeling confident, it is important to have a routine for both the outer (appearance) and the inner (body). Here are some of my daily routines for both.
|Hydration: It is so important to drink plenty of water throughout the day. |
These pretty bottles make that possible on the go as well--and they are BPA free.
|As much as I love wearing a color on my lips from time to time,|
most days I wear chap stick only, and since high school, I have been
wearing Burt's Bees.
|Make sure you get plenty of beauty rest. Everyone is different,|
when I was 20, 6 hours was good. Now I need 7-8 hours in
order to function.
|Balance out work with play. Make time for something|
you love. For me, that is going for a walk somewhere
pretty--either due to nature or architecture.
|Exercise at least 5 times a week and stretch everyday. I am not|
even half this flexible, but I will keep trying! =)
