I really like APL Techloom Breeze Sneakers or New Balance 327 (additionally love these) or the 524. Each are very comfy and aren’t too thick/heavy so your ft can breathe. Leather-based sneakers are simpler to maintain clear/keep however I attempt to save these for cooler climate as my ft get sweaty.
4) Favourite journey second / journey?
So many nice journey recollections for me! I’ve two favorites. The most effective journey reminiscence I’ve was a visit to Oxford England in 2001. I went to Oxford on a research overseas journey in school one summer time and made mates which have turn out to be lifelong mates. I met my greatest good friend on this journey (we had been roomies) and I additionally met my future husband on this journey (Andrew was one of many TAs).
I might say one of the best journey I’ve been on was a month lengthy Europe journey Andrew and I took again in 2015. We’d love to return to Europe for an prolonged journey. In all probability not this 12 months since we’re planning a transfer. Hopefully in 2024!
5) How do you discover locations to journey together with your fur infants?
Ollie has been very easy to journey with and we find it irresistible! To this point we’ve solely taken him with us to Miami which is near us and tremendous canine pleasant. We haven’t taken him on a aircraft but as we’re not certain if he’ll match below the seat for a stick with it pet. Kitty has include us to Miami a pair occasions however he doesn’t like automobile rides in any respect.
It was fairly troublesome journey with Jake and Lucy. The Jack Russell breed could be very energetic they usually don’t all the time play nicely with others. We did take them on just a few street journeys and we had enjoyable however it was loads of work.
After they had been younger we introduced them on a street journey from San Diego to Seattle for Andrew’s work round 1 week. We additionally drove Jake, Lucy and Kitty throughout nation from San Diego to Tampa after we moved which took round 5 days. All three additionally travelled from Tampa to Louisville (and again) after we evacuated for a hurricane one 12 months.

We discovered an important a coach and labored with him for the previous 3 years. Our workouts are break up by class, one class per exercise: Push Day, Pull Day, Leg Day. Typically we add in a shoulder day or lively restoration day.

7) What are your favourite make-up appears for a seashore day? My eye make-up all the time runs.
My seashore make-up has developed through the years to be extra minimalist. I’ll use the Supergoop! Glow Screen or Chanel CC Cream (which I’m hoping comes again in inventory). Typically I’ll set with a light-weight pressed powder. Add a tiny little bit of cream bronzer just like the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Cream Bronzer or Tower 28 Sculptino (I like Getty).
For eyes if I do put on make-up it’s a cream shadow stick just like the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick (I put on Golden Amber or Golden Pink essentially the most). A number of the darker shades may be smudged alongside the lash line to double as liner. I hardly ever put on liner or mascara as a result of irrespective of how “long-wear” it’s, merchandise merely don’t maintain as much as REAL humidity or warmth.
When you want somewhat coloration/bronze glow I really like mixing within the Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Serum Drops with moisturizer or utilizing it all around the face.
8) What an excellent tinted moisturizer (Chanel cc cream is offered out!!)?
I’m nonetheless ready for it to come back again too! I used to be informed at a retailer that Chanel is reformulating it however I don’t know for certain whether it is. Nothing is pretty much as good, however another options I like are the Supergoop! CC Screen, Summer Fridays Sheer Skin Tint (I’m in between Shade 4 and 5), Caliray Freedreaming Blurring Skin Tint (I put on Shade 6), Tower 28 SunnyDays SPF30 (I put on 35 Level Dume), and the Too Faced Born This Way Healthy Glow Skin Tint (I put on Heat Beige).
I just like the Too Confronted one of the best.
9) How are you liking Botox now that you simply’ve tried it? Will you do it once more?
I find it irresistible. I’m glad I lastly did it. I’m nonetheless petrified of needles however I do know it’s one thing I can handle. Trolls have been telling me to repair my face for years – nicely I lastly fastened it. It’s not the rationale I did it although, it’s been on my checklist for years. I simply almost cross out on the considered needles. If you need extra I’ve saved the main points to my BOTOX Instagram Highlights.
For many who don’t use Instagram I had a Botox injection for the primary time ever at age 42. The areas that had been completed included my brow and 11s with almost 40 models. We went to @marissathepa for our first Botox injection ever and I extremely advocate her. Andrew obtained Botox too!
I’ve been overwhelmed with the optimistic suggestions! So a lot of you had been cheering me on! I’m actually touched that a lot of you shared your private experiences, procedures, frequency, pricing and so on. It nonetheless makes me somewhat unhappy that that is one thing a lot of you aren’t comfy sharing or speaking about brazenly due to destructive judgement from others.
We had been each very proud of the outcomes, the sensation and sensation simply takes getting used to. The primary two weeks I couldn’t transfer my brow and it was so relaxed I felt like I needed to pressure to open my eyes somewhat. Suggestions from a lot of you was to get 30 models subsequent time for extra motion. My deep set traces disappeared on my brow and within the 11 space.
The one month mark will likely be this Saturday and I’ll do my subsequent replace then. I’m undecided if we will likely be doing this each 3 or 6 months. Some say they will do it 1x per 12 months. A lot of you messaged me that it solely lasts 3 months for many of you. When you’ve got any questions please be at liberty to electronic mail or DM me.
10) Finest new magnificence purchase of 2023?
One other robust one! When you depend Botox as a magnificence purchase I feel that was my greatest buy this 12 months. For brand spanking new launches I’ve been actually impressed with the La Mer Moisturizing Soft Cream. They reformulated it this 12 months and it’s been my absolute favourite skincare merchandise. I nonetheless have some left of the unique system and positively discover the brand new one absorbs higher into the pores and skin, feels higher and simply total works higher.
For one thing that’s TRULY new (as in not a reformulation or repromote) I really like the Tom Ford Eyeshadow Palette in Golden Hour. I’ve not reviewed/swatched it however you’ll be able to see it in action here. I additionally assume the Dior Solar Body Oil is simply lovely.
The brand new Armani Luminous Silk Glow Blush is among the greatest blush formulation I’ve tried. I’ve Shade 51 in action here. I simply purchased just a few extra. It has a delicate buildable texture with one of the best pure sort of glow.
