The heck does that mean?

How do you like my new short and darker ‘do? I had to postpone my cut until after the Google shoots so I looked the same in the campaign.  It feels so great to have shorter hair. I’ve had the long Disney Princess hair and I just needed something less maintenance this summer, I now have efficient hair.

Fridays are for rambling about life and thoughts so here goes.

I’ll tell you what I’ve been thinking a lot about – my goal on the simple, efficient life. The heck does that really mean? I was at a Pinterest blogging event the other week – an event that made me verbalize to fellow bloggers exactly what my blog is about, what I do, and a painful throbbing awareness that I can only last so long in high heels. Simple: Fewer things, basics, using what works. Efficient: Shortcuts in life, things that make annoying things in life easier, economical.

What helps me achieve a simple and efficient life:

The last post reminds me of the list posts I hope to tackle this summer – best of: loungewear, kitchen shortcuts, beauty, all things that I can absolutely vouch for because I own. I will pass on my Asian efficiency secrets to you!

Joking aside, I am finding the simple and efficient quest is quite enjoyable – finding a shortcut, a solution to a problem, to make something you don’t like doing but have to do for survival (like cooking), I feel like a discoverer! If you have any shortcuts in life, I’d love to know. I think a cleaning lady is a great shortcut too, thank goodness Mr. Wonderful agrees.

Hope you have a happy, efficient weekend. ;) xx

    Love the new ‘do! And totally agree on having a cleaning lady. She makes Tuesdays my favorite day of the week, as that’s when I come home to fresh sheets and a clean house! Money well spent.

      Thanks! Oh yes the cleaning lady! When I realized they washed the sheets too, I was like, oh stop it, this is amazing!!! We have our house cleaned once every three weeks since we don’t have kiddos, but the last few days we’re just dying for her to come! :) Worth every penny! It would take me days to clean like her!

    Love you new haircut! Doesn’t it feel much lighter? I did that earlier this year, and it felt so nice!

      It feels lighter and just easier to maintain! I feel like my neck can breathe ;)
