Oak Park native and Saturday Night Live “Weekend Update” anchor Cecily Strong hit the red carpet in Chicago on March 12 and has landed the cover of a couple magazines, recently. In the April issue of Glamour, which is on shelves now, she is giving readers her top do’s and don’ts for a happy life.
One of those don’ts includes cautioning readers against wearing clothes they like to any job that involves bleach.
“I was a dishwasher at The Buzz Cafe in Oak Park, Illinois,” says Strong in an interview with Glamour, “and I learned not to wear any clothes I liked to work, because even the smallest splash of bleach will stain.”
Here that, ladies and gents? No Rag and Bone near the mop bucket.
Strong also says do “pop a bottle of vino,” go to free concerts, workout (even if you hate it), hire a professional to “clean your place-once,” and play with a dog as much as possible.
What is on the Don’t list?
Don’t forget to sleep is first on Strong’s list.
“Find times to nap-and don’t worry if people judge you,” Strong says.
Also, don’t take a shower. No, she is not advocating a hygiene strike. She recommends treating oneself to a long, luxurious bath.
Don’t underestimate fake lashes, don’t be a yes man and, lastly, don’t complain.
Strong says, “This may sound hippie-dippie, even for me, but I think putting good vibes out in the universe returns some to you.”
