Anonymous said: Hello! We have the same haircut. Yours Looks markedly better. Could you give a play by play of how you style it/products you use? Specifically how you get awesome volume while maintaining sleekness. Bless.

Continued: Okay more specifically when your hair was a bit shorter.

Hello anon.

Two keys here: blow dryer + round brush and a flat iron.

I’m sure there are some good tutorials out there on blow drying with a brush, but basically go section by section using the end of the blow dryer against your hair/the brush. Take small pieces and get each one dry before moving on. This is how I get volume. Don’t skip the back, either, or you’ll have a weird flat head.

(If I’m not in a hurry I let my hair dry naturally probably 75 percent of the way first. If I’m pressed for time, I blow dry my hair with my head upside down until it’s just damp, then switch to the brush.)

I use a flat iron on the ends to make sure everything is smoothed out. If I take my time blow drying I don’t have to do much of that, but the flat iron does make the whole mess a little more polished.

I finish it all off with a bit of hairspray. I like heavy hold. That flexible crap does nothing for me. My favorite is got2b glued.

Today in suggestive witch fashion. Alternatively titled: I’ve had this skirt for years and just realized it has pockets.

Here’s the thing about working at a gym: it’s so, so easy to never wear real clothes. Stretchy pants, tank tops and sneakers are totally acceptable. 

I cleaned out my closet today, got rid of everything that didn’t fit and saw a bunch of things I forgot I had. 

This week I’m going to try a little harder to look put together.

My butt is so sore. I think it was last night’s EMOM rowing and front-rack lunges. We never do those, and boy are they awkward. I felt like my knees were caving in every time and feared for my life.

I’m not going to recap the whole workout because it really felt like one of those days where CrossFit, for me, is ultimately just exercise. Romanian deadlifts, rowing and lunges. Nothing crazy, nothing great, just a sweaty workout to end my night.

One of the trainers had a private session early this morning so I didn’t have to open the gym. I slept an extra hour, and it was glorious. It was still so hard to get out of bed, though.

Last night I was reading in bed and Scott was on the computer. He comes in, looking a little concerned, and says “… What’s alliepets?” Oh sweet husband. It’s just a fake Tumblr Celeste made because she’s the biggest troll I know.

I took this really obnoxious picture in my underwear (whatever, you do that too), and I’m kind of blown away. My stomach looks better than it has … probably ever. There’s still an area that will bother me forever unless 1. I have like -5 percent body fat or 2. get over it, but otherwise I’m really pleased. 

This is probably getting old, but I feel really on track and I’m proud of myself.

Happy weekend!

This is the best thing I’ve ever read.

No, we’re not sisters. Just soul mates.

Highly amused that this is anon.

Currently: two in each ear, two forward helix in my right ear, tragus on both ears, septum.

Previously: two on one side of my nose, one on the other side, philtrum, two dermal anchors on the side of my face next to my ear

Little Miss katherinerxd tagged me in this forever ago, and it reminds me of Live Journal, so obviously I’m doing it. Now I’m thinking about all people who are going to have to look up Live Journal. Oh man.
