Somethings are worth repeating.

I really enjoyed your responses to yesterday’s athleisure chat and what I liked to hear is how much we take pride in our appearance. It really came out in your thoughtful comments and after re-reading, it has given me pause to reflect. Not so much about how we style ourselves to take our exercise but in general. Our presentation is as much for others as it is for us and it is easy with the emphasis on relaxed life to get a little lazy. I am kidding myself; quite lazy.
One area I fall down is in makeup.
