Thank the lawd we have an early spring on the horizon…
My new (increased) SoulCycle schedule went into effect this week, and beyond drastically changing my sleep schedule (I’ll touch on that next week), I find myself spending significantly more time away from my apartment.
This is good in a lot of ways, of course, but don’t you hate having to carry around a huge handbag (or two) everyday?
Here’s an idea of what my day is like:
Teaching-wise, I’ll do so in the morning (between 6 and 8:30 a.m.) and then again in the early evening (between 4 and 8 p.m.). Where I live in Chicago, it doesn’t make much sense for me to commute all the way home, so during that in-between period, I’ve been having a love affair with various coffee shops (and certain male baristas) around the city.
On days like that — days like today — trying to look cute without toting around an entire vanity presents a bit of a challenge.
Hands down, Nike’s Hypewarm tights are your best bet for winter — they’re fleece-lined and as a result, heaven-sent.
A lot of you have asked me about what pants I wear to and from the studio (or to run/for outdoor workouts), and these are them. Serious game-changer, guys. (And as an FYI, Zappos is often where I shop for my workout gear — super-fast, free shipping is a no-brainer.)
Now, beauty-wise, I absolutely love bareMinerals’ Complexion Rescue foundation. It’s water-soluble, so it won’t sink into your pores if you sweat when it’s on your face — also perfect for a little post-class pick-me-up (after washing one’s face, of course).
MAC’s Liquidlast eyeliner stays all day (literally, all day — even after a kick-ass workout). I use Laura Mercier’s translucent powder to set my T-zone, swipe on some waterproof mascara (I use a drugstore brand — L’Oreal Voluminous) and I’m out the door… Err, studio. Of course, a little dry shampoo goes a long way, too.
What are your go-to’s when you’re out all day? And while we’re at it, any tips or tricks for keeping your energy levels up (without drinking coffee every hour on the hour)? Share the wealth, my friends!
