Not So Wide Awake

Usually I try to have my posts ready to go the night before. Not so much last night. To be honest, I didn’t really have much to say! But then, when I got up this morning and looked in the mirror, I realized how noticeable it was that I had just woken up. My face is slightly puffy, my eyes are still heavy and my hair is everywhere. I present to you morning, pre-coffee, Kara:

Terrifying, right? Haha! Actually, I don’t look much different than when I’m showered and such. Daphne also wanted to get in on the “Out of Bed” look. I think she can rock it better than I:

Anyway, I’ve never been the kind of girl who can’t leave the house without putting on make-up. I’m rather “plain-Jane”, if you will. I’ve never understood girls who freak out when people see them first thing in the morning with no make-up on. I don’t care how people see me in the morning, as long as they don’t see me with drool stains on my face. While I shower every morning religiously, I can get up and run a quick errand in the morning if I need to before I shower. (I used to have to drive my brother to school when he missed the bus.)

I think that in the morning, you see a person for who they truly are. Seeing a person with no make-up on is almost as intimate as seeing a person naked sometimes, especially when they’re not comfortable without their “face” on.

Who are YOU in the morning?

One thought on “Not So Wide Awake

  1. BF and I got pretty comfortable with each other early on. Fuzzy hair, morning breath, the works.

    I used to refuse to leave the house without makeup back when I had really bad skin, but now I hardly wear foundation at all. Usually a swipe of lippy so I don’t look like a ghost and I’m good to go.
