It's been the perfect day for attempting to reduce my carbon footprint by going carless for a day. The sun and that soft hint of a breeze seem to be practically shouting at me to get outside and enjoy them while they're here.
The best part of my swim this morning was quite possibly the post swim coffee in the courtyard that adjoins the pool's cafe. I won't lie though, it was relaxing in a vigorous kind of way churning through my laps as my mind floated from one thing to the next. It's my way of meditating, I guess.
We've been embracing yogurt here at SSG Manor 2.0. Toddler SSG's current favourite is strawberry flavoured Petit Miam Squeezie.
And I've discovered Chobani's lightly sweetened yoghurt. I was devastated (but not completely surprised) to discover that the secret to why many dessert yoghurts taste so good is that many of them are heavy on the cream. Chobani's does have cream in it but it's not as rich as others I've tried yet it doesn't taste sickly sweet and fake like other low fat yoghurts.
We all need goals in our lives and I've found a new one. To be able to perform an acceptable blow dry on my own hair. I day 'perform' because from the YouTube videos I've been studying, doing the perfect blow dry / blow out is an art form in its own right. There's so much technique in the way hair is sectioned, the way you wind it around the brush, how you unwind it off the brush (my biggest weakness) and of course how you angle the hairdryer at your hair.
I'm taking it one step at a time. Today I've managed to achieve 'root lift' and my hair doesn't feel like straw. If I ever get overwhelmed on my journey to perfect DIY hair, I'll remember how far I've come with winged eyeliner!
Can you perform a salon blow dry on your own hair? Any tips or tricks you'd like to share?
