Have you reached that point in the summer yet where it feels like everything – including you – is moving in slow motion? Summer heat and humidity, no matter how much we love it, and how much we embrace it, can definitely slow the human body down. It seems that we’re all on the same page by mid-July. Maybe this is why the word lazy is used so much when describing summer and its related activities. “Those lazy days of summer”,”Lazing by the pool”, “Spending a lazy day in the yard/on the porch/at home…” You get the picture. Summer is the time for vacation, for beach days, for music and beer festivals, and just generally for being in less of a rush than we normally are during the rest of the year.
So taking all that into consideration, it’s no wonder the fashion and beauty sites and magazines are also on the same page, and it’s the time of the season when they all seem to drop their “Lazy Guides” – for hair, makeup, you name it. If it’s something you need to do to yourself? There is a lazy version of it, guaranteed. And just in the nick of time, too.
