Clean Up Like a Pin Up

 It’s time for spring cleaning, and on occasion when I’m cleaning, I harness my inner Vargas Girl. You can too.
Clean Up Like a Pin Up
1. Head scarves aren’t just adorable but they keep those pesky falling pieces of hair off of your face while you work. Bear complimented me the entire time I dusted at how adorable I looked. (Worth noting: Head scarves can go crooked and then the bow starts to look a little less “Rosie the Riveter” and a little more “Tupac.” Watch out for that… Or embrace it. Whichever.)
2. Shorts. It’s HOT. Since I was working on something outside before I started cleaning, I HAD to wear shorts. It was a steamer on Saturday, so of course I was rocking some shorts. They’re practical and they’re damn sexy. Seriously though.
3. I like loose fitting shirts while I clean for the same reason I like shorts. It’s HOT. Grab a button up and tie it on the bottom. Think “Mary Ann” from Gilligan’s Island.
4. This one is not for the faint of heart… or weak of knees. I know it’s not for everyone, but it’s one of my favorite things to do: Wear. Heels. Yes, really. Heels. Not stilettos or anything crazy like that. Just a pair of small wedges…  Have you ever pushed a vacuum in heels?!?! It’s a WORK OUT with a capital SEXY. It’s soooo good for your calves, and it kills two birds with one stone. You get in some exercise and your floors are now spotless.
Congrats! Now that you’ve been so efficient with your time, what will you spend the rest of your day doing? My suggestion: Get your thankful, drooling partners to make you a retro cocktail (a sidecar or maybe an old fashioned) and sip it in the shade on the patio while listening to records.
