Go outside. Wasted the summer on the sofa? There is still plenty of time to get off your ass and feel the sun on your face. It doesn’t have to be an all day commitment. My friend Trisha and I took a short but challenging hike over the weekend and celebrated with smoothies and pancakes. I was back on the couch with the bong by 3 pm, but this time with a misguided sense of accomplishment. Go natural. Lose the make-up, hair dryer, and trappings of effort and just go as you are for at least a day. See how good you look free from all the cosmetic “enhancement.” Ever since I stopped brushing my hair like an Olsen everyone keeps saying how great it looks. A dialed-down you might receive surprisingly interesting reactions. Why not cultivate an effortless look by actually using less effort?Embrace frivolity. Before September strikes, enjoy a moment of total silliness. Play in a sprinkler. Wear ridiculous vintage. Smile at strangers. Read Jacqueline Susann. Send a postcard. Shamelessly court fun.
