Happy Labor Day! | 2017

We’ve made it through Summer 2017 and I’m sure everyone will agree between record heat waves and hurricanes; a 3 day weekend is well deserved!

I spent a good part of the weekend lounging around the house (if my lavish sprawling photo at the top of this blog post serves as any proof). I think I got a little bit of heat exhaustion from running with friends in 103-degree heat a few days ago so I’ve been taking it easy for the past few days. In place of my usual weekend running, I’ve been experimenting with how to raise my low blood pressure (I'll explain in more detail in an upcoming post), reading and of course, playing in makeup! 
Currently, I’m catching up on James Altucher’s most recent book, “Reinvent Yourself”, a follow-up from “Choose Yourself" and  "Homo Deus” by Yuval Noah Harari which is a follow-up to his book, “Sapiens” which I highly recommend everyone read. Mr. DJR has been catching up on "Black Swan” by Nasim Nicholas Taleb. It’s an older book but I’m  interested to see his takeaways. 

As for my current makeup haul, I’m getting ready to transition my skincare routine and makeup products for Fall. I’ve dumped out my summer beauty bag of go-tos and am reevaluating what’s going to stay for Fall/Winter. Of course, it’s ridiculously hot right now which is clouding my judgment and I’ll probably have to redo this again in a month or so but that’s par for the course living in L.A. this time of year.

My wisdom tooth situation is much better so I’ve been trying to get back on a regular, more solid eating schedule. I can probably contribute a part of my low blood pressure to lack of proper nutrition. I spent my morning at Backyard Bowls enjoying an avocado toast, a grain bowl, and quinoa porridge. We love the vibe of Backyard Bowls - their bright colors and open airy space.

It’s been a nice break this summer. I’ve taken more time for myself away from work and social obligations than I ever have before. I went into the time off a bit on edge about being out of the modeling scene in addition to not micromanaging the business but it’s been well worth it. In a few weeks I’m off to Hawaii for a work-cation as I slowly ramp up through the Fall but for now, I’m just going to enjoy the next 24 hours of the end of summer holiday!
