Randoms on Tuesday? – Let’s Get InstaUgly

Maybe now that I am blogging “regularly” (I use that loosely) again, I can start up my random Friday’s again because I miss them since there is something about sharing all my crazy thoughts that I have at the end of the week with all of you that just makes me feel good.

But since it’s been a while… why not share these random thoughts today, on a Tuesday. Yeah, why not?

What a rebel.

Random #1: Insta-Ugly
Does anyone else seriously get excited to get home for the day so they can get all insta-ugly.

What is insta-ugly you ask? It is the ritual that takes place before anything else when I get home from work. It is when you walk in the door after a long day (or even a short day) and immediately turn from “awesome-badass-day-tackler” into “insta-ugly-home-dweller.”

Mine starts with immediately throwing my hair into a messy bun. Sometimes this even happens on the car ride home.

Hair And then I finish it off with removing all jewelry and accessories and grabbing whatever comfortable clothes I can find first. Usually yoga pants or sweatpants, and a tank top or T-shirt.

ugly That is my super excited face (and random jazz hand?) to be all comfortable and done with the day. Well, and I am also excited because I am about to eat dinner (yum).

If you told me that you went home and changed into some “super comfortable” lingerie or put on your sexy maid outfit I would tell you that you ma’am, are a liar.

Random #2: How random of her….
I found this in a magazine (I think February’s issue of Shape?)

It was a brief interview with Katy Perry and some quotes they had out there from her.

QuoteFor some reason I think this is awesome and it really made me laugh. I mean how fun would it be to wear a disguise when you are someone famous and do something like that?

Random #3: I love this.
This is my new favorite. SO good.

Guilty My new guilty pleasure. Except honestly, I dont feel guilty.

Random #4: What the…..
If you follow me on Instagram (@Andreaoutloud if you want to play along), you saw that I posted this yesterday:

cooking While in my magical little exercise tracker yesterday on my phone, I was browsing through some different exercises and came across this.

“Cooking Indian bread on an outside stove” has got to be one of the most descriptive “exercises” I have ever seen. Maybe that is like an extra grueling task or something? I mean come on….Dumb.

And who am I to judge, but if cooking bread to shove in your carb-hole is something you consider a valid form of “exercise,” I think you need to re-evaluate. Just sayin’.

Random #5: ilovedogs
And just for fun, here is a picture of my parents dog (they live on the beach in Belize).

Coconuts He loves coconuts.



That’s all for today.

  • Give me a random thought floating around in your head.
  • Please tell me how you get “insta-ugly” when you get off work? If not, what is the first thing you do when you get home from work/your day?
  • Any current “guilty” food pleasures? (even if you dont feel guilty about it)

  1. Excellent brain dump! I totally insta-ugly. I come home, pee (must do), lose the work clothes, throw on sweats, and head to the kitchen because it is normally feeding time. No guilty pleasures at the moment… I did OD on a bag of pistachios on Sunday that were intended to last the entire week… FAIL.

  2. Now that I don’t go to work everyday I get the pleasure of being “insta-ugly” all day long!! Its actually pretty great. Ha!
    That ice cream looks bomb. I’m gonna have to be on the lookout for it!

  3. I work from home, so I’m in “insta-ugly” mode all day most days. Right now, I’m loving that this is possible. I have a feeling that pretty soon I’m going to be getting way too dolled up on the weekends when I actually leave my apartment though.. to make up for the lack of makeup and real clothes the rest of the week.

  4. This is so funny! Insta-ugly is my life.. When I am not in school and dont have anywhere to be, I declare it “No clothes (insert day of the week here)” PJS only!

    • haha love it! Yes, there are weekends where if I dont have anywhere to go… i will live in instaugly mode. Poor Torrance!

  6. Hahahaha Messy buns have been my hair style of choice lately. (Sock bun, if I’m feeling like looking classy for work… such as today.) It takes literally 30 seconds and I Swear I get more compliments on my hair when it’s like this haha. Perfect short cut 😉

    • Ugh I am so jealous!! I tried to sock bun and I like, cant do it. I need to practice more because it is amazing!!

  7. I pretty much always change from jeans/ work pants to sweat pants/lulu’s when I get home. It just makes life better 😀

  8. that exercise sounds fun, anything that ends with food as a result is a workout I’m up for! haha!
    I’m a fitness instructor so I pretty much go from spandex hotness to hot mess everyday

  9. Love your random thoughts! I so do the ‘insta-ugly’ –I think my husband thinks I wear big-warm-don’t-squeeze-your-sides sweatpants and a hoodie to work in the winter- that’s what I’m eating breakfast in when he leaves and by the time he comes home, I’ve already insta-uglied!
