Things I Love Lately
1. Coconut Stuff
And yes, my husband does approve. This is actually the third Star Wars shirt that I own and James is actually quite proud of me for it. James is my Han and I'm his Leia.. so of course the shirt is perfect.
Basically you take a shower, get it mostly dry, then twist it up with the headband like in the video (with maybe a little mousse or hairspray). No heat. Less time. Honestly, I think it's my favorite internet discovery in a while (probably since I found that carrot muffin cream cheese filled recipe a while back). So basically it takes me about two minutes to curl my hair now, as long as I plan ahead. I've gotten a couple weird looks from my family before bed. But it's so worth it.
I used to hate plain coconut water. But then I've been trying to watch my sugar intake (with all the bad rep that sugar is getting lately) and now things are suddenly tasting sweeter to me. So I treat myself after long runs and harder workouts now. As for the coconut oil, it's actually an antibacterial and an anti-fungal. I'm super paranoid about being barefoot when I go to my weekly yoga or pilates classes. I've caught athlete's foot before and I don't care to ever catch it again. So I'm been just rubbing a little bit on my feet after class when I get home. At room temperature, it's basically the consistency of lip balm. And it smells so coconut-ly nice. Also, coconut is pretty trendy right now so it's fairly easy to find this stuff all over.

3. This youtube video:
I actually saw this idea in a different video about a year ago by thelipstickdiaries but she doesn't seem to have it posted anymore. I naturally have a LOT of hair/ it's really thick so this didn't work very well for me before. But I recently got my hair thinned out for the first time and so I decided to try it again.

4. This iphone cover:
I don't actually have an iphone yet. James and I don't have smart phones yet and we've been trying to decide between android and iphone. I've been able to play around with both and I like the iphone way better. I told James that I had already picked this Doctor Who cover out and I got accused for picking the iphone just because I couldn't find a Doctor Who cover for the android. hehe. That's not the case, but I can't deny that it did play a factor.
I'm also aware that I think I'm making it painfully obvious that I'm a bit of a sci-fi geek girl. Maybe I should have made my blog "Geeky Running Army Wife".. it just doesn't flow quite as well.
