The Daily July 1st, 2021

Oh my darlings we have made it to July. I have no idea where june went. It sort of flew by in a haze of stress and pain. Quite frankly i am rather glad to see the back of it.

I have high hopes for July.

And a good feeling.

Today there was an early morning walk to get the blood pumping through the veins and the limbs moving. My legs have mostly recovered from the bike ride earlier in the week. I really do have to figure out a way to set some sort of timer on my bike rides. Perhaps i just need to simply set an alarm on my I-pod so that it interrupts the music when I’ve reached the halfway point.

Its just that once I get going, I tend to stay moving until I have gone way past the point where i know I should have stopped.

I’m sure I will figure it out though. And I do have time. The days are getting hotter and while we may still have a splash of a cool day some time, July and August tend to be brutal here so i am not counting on it. I doubt I will manage to get my bike out again until September.

But the walk was nice.

And the mail actually came early today. Guess what arrived?

My order from The Skin Store. They had a sale going on for Grow Gorgeous (25% off) and since I have been liking their Overnight Hair mask (The review of which I will try to get posted next week) I decided to take advantage of the sale and pick up a shampoo and conditioner set. I am still using (and loving) the Zents Mandarin Shampoo and Water Conditioner so it will be a while before I get to try this out, but i did want to take advantage of the sale. It is still going on by the way, I’ll post the link below for those interested. I figure that my Zents will last until close to the end of the summer and then I will switch up the shampoo and conditioner sets as fall descends. About that time my dye kit from e-salon will come in and while I will probably still dye my own hair, I will be getting a professional to cut my hair.

I have come to the realization that I am useless with anything but trimming the ends. At this point there are no layers left in my hair and that someone other than me really needs to be in charge of trimming my bangs. I made an absolute mess of it this last time. You’d think I’d get better, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. At least by fall they will have grown out again and need a trim, instead of being the overly short and not quite even set I have now.

Yeah, everyone has their own skills and talents. Cutting hair is definitely not in my wheelhouse. while it is good to branch out and try new things, sometimes it is also good to know what you need to delegate to someone else.

As for today’s makeup, I’m afraid there isn’t any. Today I decided that since i wasn’t going to really see anything but a few dog walkers on the walking trail and my computer screen, I would let my skin have the day off to breath. tomorrow i will start testing the natasha Denona Foundation. Doday, I have gone au naturale. Sometimes, you just gotta let the skin breathe.

And now it is time for me to get back to work. I’m hoping to clear off enough paperwork that tomorrow will be a nice and easy slide into the weekend. I’m not counting on it, but hope does spring eternal. I hope the rest of your day is absolutely fabulous.
