WorkIt Wednesday- Get Out of My Face.

Hey Cats!

As we speak, I’m catching up on The Bachelor, since it’s during my sorority meetings on Monday nights. It’s only been about ten minutes, but all I have to say is that these girls are super trashy. I’m not even sorry, and if it turns out like Juan Pablo’s season I may have to stop watching. I mean, that’s probably an empty threat, but please class it up, ladies. I digress.

Today on WorkIt Wednesday, we’re going to talk about my hair. And a little bit about yours, but mostly mine. I like to believe that I have really nice hair, and I like to wear it down most of the time. However, there is nothing more annoying than having it all in your face when you’re trying to be active. For eample, when I was a cheerleader, we would sometimes wear our hair down and straight to basketball games, because you know, everyone cared about how we looked standing in the corner squealing and dodging referees. I just remember a few times where I threw tumbling passes and thought I was going to DIE because my hair whipped over my eyes and I couldn’t see which way was up and everything was moving so fast. Ever since then, I’ve been a little judgy when I see girls with their hair down at the gym. I mean, your hair looks great, but does it not inhibit your workout? Maybe it’s just me, but I like my gym hair like I like anyone’s sass but my own- out of my face.

Here are some of my favorite accessories for a few different hair situations at the gym:

1. Clean Hair

I get it. Sometimes it’s Day 1, and you don’t want a ponytail bump or headband crease. On these days, I’ll just pull my hair back with an extra stretchy hair elastic, like these from Ulta. I like these because they don’t give me a ponytail bump, and they hold pretty well, too.

Sometimes I leave it at a ponytail, but other times I need a headband so the wispies don’t get in my way. I’ll wear a loose-fitting, cloth headband so my hair doesn’t get too greasy, and so I don’t get a headband crease! I have a similar pair of headwraps from Icing, and they’re great for keeping your hair out of the way but still allowing you to wear it down the next day!

2. Day 2 Hair

This is when you’re going to wash your hair before you have to look presentable again. I usually use one of the hair ties above, and pull my hair back with a thin headband. These from Under Armour are my favorites, because they have grips on the reverse side that keep them from sliding down your face while you’re running, because that poses a real problem.

3. Day 3 Hair

This typically occurs on a Saturday, when you definitely should have washed your hair the night before, but you either went out or you just didn’t feel like it, and your hair is greasy and beyond ratchet. The only option for this day? Put on a hat and cover that mess up. This is also a good option for when you don’t want to talk to anyone: just pull the brim down low enough and go on about your day. I have quite a few hats that I wear, mostly with a Texas A&M logo, but my favorite is my monogrammed camo hat from Mandy’s Monograms. It says “I’m pretty cute, but I’m also not messing around”.

So there you have it. Multiple ways to keep your luscious locks out of your face whilst breaking a sweat. Now that I’ve shared this with you, you have no reason to be “that girl” whose hair is the only thing getting a workout. Learn it, love it, live it. And it’s Wednesday, so don’t forget to #werkIt.

That’s all for meow!

Friday’s Five

Hey Cats!

Yay for Friday! My sister is coming to visit tomorrow, so I’m super excited for the weekend. I’m not sure what we’re going to do yet, but I know we’ll have a great time! This week has seemed super short to me, probably because I was home until Monday. Here’s what I’m loving this week:

Turning 22, obviously. I had a great weekend at home with my family filled with shopping, lake and pool time, and (too much of) the best birthday cake ever. Then when I got back to school on Monday, I went to dinner with some of my cute friends at Napa Flats, one of my favorite College Station restaurants, which is the picture above. At first I was a little sad to be turning 22…everyone makes such an ordeal about turning 21, and then after that you’re just old. But I think 22 is going to be a wonderful year full of new adventures, responsibilities, and experiences, and I’m super excited!

2. This week, yesterday to be precise, I finished my online class! WHOOP. This means nothing to do but blog for three weeks until the fall semester starts. And also panic because it’s my last year of college.

saturday fall dress

Kate Spade Saturday released their Fall Collection this week, and I’m LOVING IT. I’m especially taken with their newest pattern, Tic Tac Tile, seen on this adorable Short-Sleeve Shift Dress. Check it out if you have a chance!

4. I acquired a large baguette while I was at home, so I made bruschetta Wednesday night, and it was delicious. Not to mention I felt pretty fancy. I would have done an entire post, but I didn’t think about it until I’d eaten about half of it, and all of my pictures came out looking kind of sad. I used this recipe as a guide, but used cherry tomatoes, skipped the fresh garlic and fresh mozzarella, and didn’t really measure anything. But still, SO GOOD, if you are ever gifted a baguette and you aren’t sure what to do with it, make bruschetta.

So since I’ve been to the gym everyday for about 3 weeks and have been running, I’ve convinced my parents that I’m an athlete. When I told my dad that my ankles had been hurting when I ran, he concluded that I needed real running shoes. We went while I was home, and I got these Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14‘s, and I’m mildly obsessed with them. They have excellent arch support, which was the issue with my old shoes, and they also feel like clouds and move with my feet. So, in one of the greatest plot twists of all time, it’s official: Kristen Moss is a runner- and she #lovesit.

I’m linking up with Amy & Karli today for Oh Hey Friday!

 

Have a great weekend! That’s all for meow!
