Dirty Feet and Hairspray

Dirty feet and hairspray.
That’s right, if someone were to describe my summer appearance that would be the best description. I run around half naked with dirty feet, no make- up, and hairspray to keep my long bangs out of my eyes.  I hate wearing shoes and since I am living in a house under construction my feet are always dirty. Even after I get out of the shower, my feet are dirty. I really miss soaking in a bathtub. Funny thing is that I have never really been much of a bathtub person. My main objective has always been to just get clean fast and get out of there. Taking the time to just soak in a bathtub has never been a luxury I could afford. In a one bathroom house with kids, I am sure many of you know what I am talking about. Then again, having one bathroom might sound a little strange in todays world as well. The past few years I have been living without a bathtub and now I really find myself missing one.



Now on to the hairspray and its evil influence over my life, you see I really hate the stuff. I do not like any hair products except a huge hair clip or a rubber band. The problem is that I forget to buy a new scissors so I can cut my bangs. I refuse to go to the hairdressers and spend tons of money for them to just cut my bangs. So what do I do? Hairspray works for me, so does a head band, but I look weird without bangs. Eventually the hairspray is going to stop working and I will have to resort to writing the word scissors on my hand so that I remember to buy one.

It’s summer and I got other things to think about then washing clothes, wearing make-up, soaking my feet (or heaven forbid wearing shoes) and buying scissors. So now that you have gotten this totally disgusting image of me and my summer appearance, how about you share with me yours? What do you look like this summer, and what could you not live without?


Have a great week-end everyone! Oh and look out for that full moon.

I always wear socks, so they are what usually gets dirty.

Um well I guess my summer attire would be shorts, some shirt I don't have to bind myself in a bra, and sandals and the ever present eye patch of doom. haha. Pretty picture eh? Since I can't afford a haircut either my glasses that are usless keep my hair out of my face when I shove them up on the top of my head. It's a hot summer look for sure!
I love bath's at night.. I'm weird though I take my shower to get clean and then right before bed hop in the tub and just soak for a few minutes. One of my only luxeries that I indulge in almost daily. So relaxing.. Hot water good book and I'm out for the count.

I'm always barefoot in the summer too - in my house, around my yard, and on my boat I'm always barefoot. Shoes are only for work and running errands.

You crack me up Sis.... such a nature girl.

Well if you have a chance to drop my blog today, you can follow my power walk along Chicago's lakefront.

As for my appearance. Well, since I am exercising about four hours a day, give and take. I live in shorts, tanks, and trainers. As for my hair, I hide in under a ball cap at all times. I hate the way sweaty hair looks, so I never leave without my ball cap. With temps in 80's and 90's, although the last three days have been beyond gorgeous, I sweat constantly.

I never use product in my hair anymore because of years my hair was glued when I modeled. I keep it short, but my hair grows like weeds in the summer and I don't have the time to get it cut every three weeks.

Like you say.... It's summer. Who has time to primp. We just want to be out to enjoy the sun.

Love the no make-up and no fussy hair days of summer! I start back to work next week and that all changes.

Panties and a bra. That's what you find me in at home, anyway. So make sure you give me warning if you're planning on stopping by :)

I bought the most comfortable pair of shoes ever. They are gym/running/trainer shoes, but instead of laces they have elastic straps that criss-cross over the shoe so you have to slide and tug them on. They were very painful the first day, but after that, it's like they have conformed to my feet. They are so light, it's like I'm not wearing shoes at all. I need about forty more pairs in a variety of colors. LOL
