Though the temperatures are quickly rising, my mornings are still chilly enough to mix in a coordinating jacket. Spring, after all, is the ideal time to practice your light layering. My spring ensemble usually consists of a light knit sweater, an oversized blazer or jacket, a pair of Gap’s legging denim (so comfy!) and a errand-ready sneakers. To me, this combination feels put together and fuss-free.
Don’t let the humble appearance fool you–this hole in the wall is a SLC favorite. Penny Ann’s menu is packed with traditional breakfast favorites, making it the ideal spot for weekend brunch. We ordered the corn beef hash with eggs over easy and hot cakes, a breakfast burrito, a plate of French toast, a side of bacon and single hot cake with Vermont maple syrup. It was enough food to feed our table of three (and then some). Come hungry, and I promise that you’ll leave happy.
Any time my hair goes from wet to dry, I use Phyto’s hydrating oil. Post-shower, I towel dry my hair and pump a dime-sized amount into the palm of my hand. I then rake it through the damp ends of my hair, from the nape of my neck down.
Every Wednesday night, I use Phyto’s hydrating night cream. I apply a dime-sized amount to the ends of my hair just before going to bed. It acts as a leave-in deep conditioner and provides up to eight hours of nourishment. The next morning, my hair always feels silky smooth.
I have a goal to only use hot tools once a week. It’s usually on Fridays, and I try to make my blowout last all weekend long. I use a 3″ round barrel brush, starting at the roots and working my way down to the ends. If you’re new to the round brush scene, don’t fret. Practice makes perfect.
On weekends when I want a bit of extra oomph, I reach for my rollers. While I’m blowdrying, I section off the top layer of my hair at the front (just behind my bangs) and at the crown. I blow these pieces dry and quickly wrap them onto large self-grip rollers. As I dry the rest of my hair, these pieces will set and give lift to my roots.
