Don't miss a thing!
Megan Trainor says it’s all about that bass, but I think it’s all about that routine! Without it, I would be a hot mess and carry around a long list of un-accomplishments. It may not work for all, but it works for me. This helps me compartmentalize and accomplish a lot throughout the day or week, which then leaves room for the fun stuff and making decisions on a whim. I’m type A with a side of creative free spirit and follow these three tips for staying forever young. I know Brad and George make 50 look good, but I’m not quite there yet!
Beauty. Since I was 15, my Mom would remind my sisters and I to take care of our skin. Always use SPF, wash your face at night, and use a moisturizing cream daily are her tips and I have been following this routine since then. I recently started using Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream and I love the hydrating yet matte feel of the cream. I use it both morning and night and have noticed my skin is brighter and smoother, which means I can leave the house without my BB cream. It is part of my beauty routine and will stay part of it as it helps transform tired skin (who said blogging was always glamorous?) into healthy skin.
Working Out. Morning yoga on the deck – sounds so LA right? It may be such an Angeleno stereotype, but it’s what helps me unwind for the weekend and get through the workweek. Yoga has always helped me reduce stress and our patio is my favorite spot in the house, so I decided to combine these two things to get motivated. I also schedule in hiking with Alan during the weekends and during the week. Alan isn’t the athletic type, but we both enjoy a walk on the natural side to recharge and catch up. Yoga coupled with morning hikes, my workout routine helps me stay focused, healthy, and energetic which is a must in my routine.
Date Day/Night. One of the many things I love about Alan is that we can talk for hours and then laugh until it hurts. I am a firm believer that laughter is the best medicine and that happy girls are pretty girls. It may sound a bit neurotic to schedule date night, but as life has gotten busier and busier, Alan and I schedule 2 date nights a week to make sure we give each other the attention we need as well as catch up on everything.
