Scrolling through social media isn’t just about people taking their health seriously anymore. Whether Fido is all about fitness, wags his tail for wellness, or barks for beauty, these five pups are posting some *serious* inspo on our feeds.
A local New Yorker with an obsession for all things kale (or any snack, really), Cookie is the cutest Toy Poodle around. A feed full of pretty pinks and greens, his photographer mom features creative photos of Cookie—with the occasional snapshot of him begging for some healthy treats.
Meet Whiskey, the venturing Vizsla whose adventures will give you some serious FOMO. From backpacking the Canadian mountains to hanging in a hammock, and hiking through the woods, it’s safe to say this pup is fit, fur sure.
Okay, it’s official: we’re beyond envious of this pup’s luscious locks. If you scroll through her feed, Willie—short for Willamina—rocks the cutest braids, pigtails, and the trendiest topknots. With help from her San Diego-based photographer mom, this sassy Yorkie has over 60,000 followers… and Allure even wrote about her fantastic fur. Now that’s hair goals.
Weighing in at 4 pounds, this pretty pup has big expectations when it comes to self-care. A puppy mill survivor, Ella Bean now resides with the rest of her pack—Coconut Bean and FiFi von Bean—in Brooklyn where her favorite things include ceviche, rosé, and modeling for mom.
This curly-haired furball is always workin’ on his fitness. When he’s not at the gym, Samson enjoys lounging in a fancy robe, playing a round of golf, and eating at the trendiest spots in NYC. Do yourself a favor and follow this darling doodle—you won’t regret it.
To put it bluntly—2020 was a real bummer. When we entered the year, we all had that “20/20 vision” mindset of making the year one of travel, joy, discovering new hobbies, and conquering our fitness goals. But come March, that vision became a blurry mess of sheltering-in-place and being forced to throw our normal routines and our aspirations out the window.
Who would have thought that something like getting a haircut would be off-limits? Or that those monthly massages wouldn’t be around to help us unwind? 2020 forced us to get creative, and you blew us away with your stick-to-itiveness.
We recently polled you on Instagram to see which beauty and wellness services you missed the most and how you’ve re-vamped your self-care routines to stay sane during this train wreck of a year. And I must say, as I read your responses in my sweats, rocking the messiest top knot of all time, I definitely felt like I need to take it up a notch when it comes to getting ready for the workday.
Seriously—an alarming number of you have been on point when it comes to sticking to your daily morning routines and actually wearing work clothes while on Zoom calls. Kudos to you!
Curious to see what the takeaways were from our Instagram poll? Keep reading.
According to your responses, you're all sick of your exposed roots and split ends equally, with 51% of you preferring to get a haircut and 49% opting for hair color. The numbers were also pretty close when it came to your nails—with 52% of you opting for a manicure over a pedicure. Due to the pandemic, the state of the beauty industry has been on a rollercoaster of openings and closings—and they need our help and support now more than ever. If you happen to live in an area where you’re able to enjoy beauty services, make sure you show your stylist or nail artist a little bit of extra love when tipping them.
Anybody who knows me will tell you the thing I miss the most is getting a monthly massage—and 71% of you seem to agree. With most of us working from our beds or hunched over our laptops on our couches, our posture (if not our comfort) has taken a serious hit. While most of us either live in an area where massages are off-limits or we just don’t feel safe going in for one quite yet, there are some touchless spa treatments you're ready to try.
Call it wishful thinking, but I was fully expecting most of you to say, “Zoom camera off” as your go-to beauty tip—but I guess that’s just me. Instead, you've all been pretty consistent with your morning routines—working out, showering, and dressing like you're actually going into an office. Some of you are even going the extra mile and putting on a red lip and some earrings. I’m taking notes.
And even though this year’s challenges put a damper on our normal routines, it's inspired us to get creative with our skincare regimen. Some of you have added new serums and masks to your skincare arsenal, while others have tried out at-home facials for that quarantine glow. By far, one of the most popular answers was the incorporation of Gua Sha to help detoxify, brighten, and tighten your skin.
This year was one for the books. But I think it made us realize there is always wellness—and that taking care of ourselves is crucial. If you're in an area where in-house beauty services are an option, book that appointment (if you feel safe to do so). If your only option right now is to stay at home, keep carrying on with your feel-good, at-home routines.
