JUST QUARANTINE THINGS! HOW THE YQR COMMUNITY HAS INSPIRED ME DURING THESE UNCERTAIN TIMES AND THE PRODUCTS YOUR HAIR NEEDS FOR ISOLATION.
Hello hello hair besties, friends and family alike, it’s Kami, back at it with blog number two! I sat down today to write and I decided to sway off my massive list of hair related topics for a minute and just talk about community (don’t worry! I’ll even talk a little bit about hair too- it’s all relative). Our YQR community has amazed and inspired me almost daily since Saskatchewan announced its State of Emergency on March 18th. These are just a few of the things that have warmed my heart, and all happened locally!
-Side walk chalk drawings. If you’ve seen them, you already know what I’m talking about. Every day I walk my dog, and every day I see the cutest and most heart warming drawings. From “Thank you Health Heros” to my personal favorite- a hand with 6 fingers that says ‘WASH YOUR HANDS’ these drawings seriously make me smile.
-The support of local businesses. It makes me so happy to see the massive shift of people who are now choosing to shop local. Everyone has heard that jingle “when you shop at a store with a door, someone in real life does a happy dance” well.. its TRUE. So whether you’re purchasing from your favorite local restaurant or hair salon (wink wink nudge nudge – our online shop is bumpin’), it really is great to be keeping your money here in Regina.
-Free fitness online. Honestly what would I do without this? (probably collapse on my first 10 hour salon day when life returns to normal, that’s what). Some of my favourite YQR fitness clubs are now streaming workouts, check out Oxygen Yoga, Project Barre, and Wheelhouse Cycle Club (even if you don’t have a bike- it’s a vibe).
- The animals are getting ALL the love. CCREZQS is having all the foster fails. Everywhere I look there is a happy doggo hanging out with their human best friend, panting too hard from walk number 6 that day.. but hey, still a huge win! Never heard of a foster fail? Check out their instagram for the low down.
-People are taking care of themselves. I see people sharing online about what they have been doing for themselves as of lately and it’s honestly the best. Sometimes in the craziness that is life, we don’t prioritize our own self-care – but we need to. Read that book, take that walk, do that hair mask. You’re worth it.
So that’s my little see-the-good list.
Counting the days until I’m back behind the chair, drinking coffee and laughing with the best company.
