This post will have nothing to do with food or fitness but I learned something this weekend that I need to share with you. I went my cousin’s goodbye party on Sunday (her and her husband are moving to Vancouver ) and met a ton of great people. It was seriously the most fit party I’ve ever been to. I know that sounds weird but it looked as though everyone could have been featured in a magazine of some sort.
It’s always great to be in a party room full of people who enjoy the same things as you do. I didn’t feel like a total freak talking about food and fitness with those who were there. Sure, we had a night of (over)indulging but we all recognized it as just that. No one felt guilty or took out MyFitnessPal to track their cupcakes or chips. It was a nice little reminder for me; it’s okay to let go sometimes, as long as you are on track most of the time.
I met one girl, Gillian, who had the nicest bun in her hair. It was perfect. I don’t know about you but whenever I throw my hair up in a bun I look a bit dishevelled and there are pieces flying uncontrollably. I asked her what her secret was and she said a sock. There was a sock in her hair. I think I’m the only one who has never heard of this because when I googled it, the sock bun was everywhere. There are how-to websites and YouTube videos explaining the whole sock bun technique.
It’s really easy, comfortable, and headache-free. I always get headaches when I put my hair in a ponytail or bun so this is going to be something that I will be rocking! I thought my hair was going to be too short but it totally works! I might even rock the sock bun to workout. Gillian said she has a sock for special occasions and a sock for the when she works out too! I love it.
Have you heard of/rocked this sock bun?
