Keeping It Real~Self Isolation Edition


Good Morning, my friends.
Am I posting a makeup-free, dirty hair, pajama-clad selfie on my blog today? Yep. This is real life right now. This is my daily life as I stay inside while a deadly virus rages outside. I am not wearing makeup, and the result is my skin is getting a much-needed break. I am not coloring my hair, or heat styling it either. No color, no hairdryer, no straightener. The result? My hair is healthier than it has been in a long time. I am wearing fresh pajamas after my shower. Less laundry. More comfort. This is real life. For now. Not forever.

Thanks for visiting.
Have a cozy, healthy day!

  1. You look so pretty and fresh in those pjs. I like the idea of staying in pjs but I walk my dog in our neighborhood two times a day, so pjs wouldn't do for that. Otherwise, I am at home alone now for 28 days. My dog Bounce says, no, you are not alone, I am here. Plus my sons visit for outdoor chats, a blessing.

  2. I hear ya! I had a color appointment scheduled for yesterday, but, of course, it was cancelled. By the time the quarantine ends and I can get another appointment, I may decide to just go gray!!

    Blessings,

  3. No colour needed here I allowed the grey to take over a couple of years ago and I quite like it. No make up here either but I am dressed as we have been working in the garden. Take care and stay safe.

  4. I think you look beautiful! I've been wearing a lot less makeup. Sadly my skin is and has always been crazy so foundation is a must for me. But eye shadow, lipstick, blush, and eyeliner are staying in the drawer for now and I'm not mad about it!

  6. Day 38 here, still EVERYTHING (but the grocery store, Tractor Supply, Lowes) is closed. Which means no hair color, no haircut, eyebrows are a mess...its sad, Billie Jo, truly it is...you, however, you are quite lovely, my friend.

    Keeping you and your sweet family in prayer.

  7. Here too dear Billie Jo. Other than I still get dressed each day. For me making that transition helps my mind move forward to the other things I want to accomplish. Blessings on the rest of your week beautiful Lady! 🙏

  12. I can relate to our latest style. I always loved a pajama day and I am glad I have lots of pajamas. I would like to go grey, but I have dark hair and I figured I would color it lighter gradually. I have 2 boxes of hair color, but don't feel like doing it. I have a vanity area I use when I color my hair but it is full of material for face mask.

  18. You're too cute. I too have been giving my face and hair a break. I did break down and shave my legs this week though; feeling kinda fancy now. HA!

  19. I don't remember the last time I styled my hair. I think I have mastered the messy bun though. Can't wait until my salon opens so I can get a cut!

Thanks so much for saying hello!
