It's really hard to look or feel cute while commuting on my bike. It's been so hot out that I almost always sweat through whatever I'm wearing (TMI? whatever) and let's not even talk about helmet hair.
My current solution has been to braid my hair, wear shorts and t-shirt or tank top, and just pack a change of dry clothing along with some freshening up necessities in my backpack. These things include Lulu Organics dry shampoo in jasmine, Tarte mascara, Lipstick Queen tinted lip balm and some Tom's of Maine lavender deodorant. Those things, along with a cool splash of water on my face, make me feel like a lady again.
I have to say that even though it's hot and sweaty, it feels really, really good to ride my bike to work every day. I have been needing some serious exercise and having this bike not only provides me with some cardio, but it will pay for itself in 4 months by not having to buy a monthly MTA pass! I haven't seen a change in my legs yet, but lets hope these gams are beach ready by the time I head to St. Croix in August!
