Summer Fashion: New Haircuts

This weekend, we didn't have show tickets, so we decided to go out for sushi on Saturday night.  

We both got our hair cut this week, so I'm making a note in case I forget when my hair starts getting super long.  In 8 weeks, my stylist said my hair grew a full inch, so I credit genetics and my daily dose of Great Lakes Collagen prescribed by my nutritionist.  I've noticed recently that my nails are also growing fast; I like to wear the press-on nails or nail stickers, and you can definitely see the growth at the bottom of my nails. 

William worked on the yoga dome for several hours on Saturday.  The boards are cut and now he's painting them white.  I wondered if he'd had enough food at the sushi restaurant, and he contemplated desert but then he said what he really wanted was a cucumber, lol.  

So, we walked down to Frazier Farms to buy him one.  

The lighting was good on the walk, so we grabbed a few selfies, where you can also see our freshly cut hair.  The further we walked, the more great backgrounds we found...we skipped getting too close to the bike shop because we didn't want to set off their alarm, and we considered climbing up on the loading dock at Office Depot but didn't go any further than these red rails.

I encourage you to look for interesting backgrounds on your next walk. A pretty background, an interesting wall, steps with any kind of line that could create a frame.  I know this may feel very social media-influencer from 5 years ago, but we had fun, and that's all that really matters.  

Photo Ops in the Neighborhood

Once we started taking photos, it was hard to stop, lol.  We got home from dinner, and we went for a walk around the neighborhood, where we walked down a gravelly driveway to get the pictures with the flowers.  

What I Wore: 

Here's another one of my dresses that I found on Sarah's Amazon Finds.  The good is that I like the colors and the length.  I had to pin the neckline because it's a pretty deep V, and I didn't want to flash anyone at the restaurant.  There are so many great clothing deals on SAF that I was disappointed with what was available on Prime Day...I am now only willing to buy a dress if it's under $10.  Hopefully, I'll have a chance to do a series of my $10 and under dresses soon...I am still searching for the perfect place to photo! 

Lashes and Make-up 

These are still FlutterHabit Weightless 3 lashes, and I'm wearing my new make-up from Seint.  I don't love network marketing companies in general, but I got pulled in with videos from Cortney and how she keeps all the make-up she needs (foundation, concealer, powder, eye shadow, blush, and lip) in one container.  

Also, I didn't have to attend a party or subscribe to place this order, so maybe there are some okay "direct sales" companies in the universe. 

I may talk about this method in a future blog.  

Hope your weekend has been relaxing!

Fall Fashion: I Found Aurora's Dress on Amazon

I posted earlier this fall about our idea to be Aurora Teagarden and Nick Miller for Halloween.  We've watched a lot of the AT movies to decide on our outfits, and we finally decided to be Aurora and Nick from Heist and Seek .  It's one of the movies where they are dressed up (the other one is Reunited and It Feels So Deadly .) In going down the AT rabbit hole, I found the designer of her dresses in both of these movies, a company called Dress the Population.  And, I also found the exact dress on Amazon , but I decided that $200 was too much for a Halloween costume.  But if you want to replicate her costume exactly, you can!   For $40, I found a sleeveless sequined blue dress with a v-neck.  You'll see it in our Halloween post.  I may look for a strawberry blonde wig or I might just do a temporary pink-ish hair color.  I'll wear my hair pulled back on one side and a dangly earring like she's wearing above, plus a super pink lip color.   Fun fact: Nick's dress sh

Fall Thoughts: "98% of All Diets Fail"

There are lots of numbers associated with the idea of trying to change your body size or composition.  The obvious numbers like the number of the scale, your waist measurement, the size of your pants or your body fat percentage. There are the numbers associated with a best guess for how much of what food you should eat, i.e. 800 grams of fruits and vegetables or 13 ounces of protein (at least for a woman of my size.) And there are numbers connected to how you move your body: how many hours you should strive for per day, how many steps you should take, how many reps you should "leave in the tank" during a weight lifting session.   There are also other numbers, including "the facts."  For example: 80% of Americans aren't eating the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables.  70% of Americans are overweight or obese.   And, my new favorite fact: "98% of all keto diets fail," which was what Dr. Robert Cywes, the Carb Addiction Doctor, who advocates for a

Fall Thoughts: A Simple Way of Eating

After sharing a few examples of extreme ways of eating, I've been thinking about some of the more simplified ways of eating that I've tried in the past. I think somewhere between the "simplicity" of the No S Diet and the "sensibility" of the 800 Gram Challenge, you probably have a lifestyle that would work for many people.   The No S Diet: "As simple as possible but not  simpler" What is it: The No S Diet is a "simple program of moderation."  It can be summed up in 14 words: No Sweets, No Seconds, No Snacks, except (sometimes) on days that start with S.   What's the science: There's really not any science; this is more of a habit-based way to moderate your eating.  Who created it?  Librarian by trade and computer programmer by accident, Reinhard Engels.   Why did I stop doing it:  I'm not sure.  I love the simplicity as I re-read about it! I'm sure I was lured away by the promise of low-carb/keto diets and then just foun
