How To Look Polished (Even When It’s Hot!)

The heat here lately in the city seams suffocating. Sweat and flushed faces are familiar scenes; while packed and soupy subway platforms are death traps. Don’t even get me started on Broadway/Lafayette! Through it all, I am focusing on that fact that this season will sadly pass. Soon enough,  I’ll look on these days of barely-there shorts and tanks with nostalgia, and curse the days of pea-coats and gray and gloomy slush trekking.

Each day must be taken and made ours. I’m determined to make each one beautiful and memorable, beyond the day’s hiccups. I’m also set on not spending any extra moment on my make-up. With two little ones and the humidity, it’s just silly.

Don’t get me wrong, I’d still love a little facial coverage here and there. Something to make me look less tired and more pulled together. Over the summer I’ve been working on an easy application that does just that. Recently I even created a tutorial for A Beautiful Mess. I hope you enjoy it, and let me know if you give it a go!

    I just found your great blog and I love it! I have a question about your amazing hair. My daughter has very similar texture to yours, but her hair never seems to grow, it just stays smashed against her head like wool. How do you get your hair so fluffed out? She's adopted so I didn't have a hair mentor growing up. I hope it's not rude for me to ask, I just think your hair looks great and when I showed her your pic, she flipped over your style. Thanks 🙂

    What does your daughter use on her hair now? In terms of products?
