Today’s post includes reviews of my favorite sea salt sprays, as well as a trick for making scrunched curls or waves turn out great every time!
Happy Thursday! I hope everyone’s surviving the heat. They keep it nice and frigid in our office, so I’ve been managing my wardrobe for the fifty-degree temperature difference between my desk and the other side of the door I set ten feet from.
Anyway, boring complaint over. Do you guys ever use sea salt sprays? I wear my hair wavy more often in this kind of humidity since the effort to straighten it often goes to waste. In the past I always held my waves with some kind of gel, but I’ve been spritzing on sea salt spray lately instead. I love the more natural look it offers.
How are you guys? I hope your short week was peaceful and productive. 🙂 I’m working in the morning today and driving to Ann Arbor this afternoon to spend the weekend with college friends. We’re running a 10k on Sunday, which I expect to go well since I haven’t run six miles at once since this weekend a year ago. But first, a quick list of Friday Favorites since the long weekend gave me a chance to write an extra post this week.
Happy Memorial Day! It’s finally felt like summer here the past few days. And what better way to kick off this season of fun than…not talk of beers or BBQ…but a list of books? Okay, glad we’re on the same page.
Growing up in the Midwest, I never put much consideration into swimsuit shopping. I’d get one each summer at Target when I was younger and at Victoria’s Secret later on, not even thinking to look elsewhere. Trying on swimsuits after a Michigan winter in which I consumed infinite Flipz white fudge pretzels while studying for midterms just didn’t seem like fun, I guess.
While the idea for this post came during my commute last week when when I somehow forgot I will not, in fact, be getting the summer off (and haven’t for three years), I put it together anyway for some inspiration to shop around a little more this season. Here are seven fun suits I came across!
I first saw the cream, pink, and black Ballerina one-piece on Cup of Jo and had to share it here – I might buy it for swimming laps this summer. Would you wear any of these? Where do you usually buy swimwear (help me out! 🙂 )?
Do you ever eat kitchen scraps for days on end because you just can’t go to work AND cook? This happened to me a couple weeks ago, and on one night, I felt pretty good because the blueberry granola I ate matched the blueberry Eggo waffles I toasted up next. On the side I had a bowl of frozen mixed vegetables. Delicious.
I finally went to Kroger this past Saturday morning, but before that I spent several hours paging through Google results for “meals that make one serving.” Sometimes I wonder if I will read the whole Internet in the process of writing this blog. Anyway, I thought having more options I could throw together without having to portion leftovers into containers and do a bunch of cleaning afterward would lead to fewer scrap dinners. Here’s what I came up with…
