Life is a funny thing! There are days I feel like I can take on the world… and then there are days I would rather hide under my big comfy comforter and just not deal it. Whether it is because I am overly stressed with work, the kids, or just in a funk, there are a few ways things that I can either do and/or put on that make me feel 100 times better!
Wearing lipstick. Whether this is a bright, bold color or something more neutral, lipstick really gives me the boost I need.
I don’t wear a ton of eyes shadow, but something I do wear consistently is liquid eyeliner. There is something about a bold, dark, liquid eyeliner that makes me feel instantly pulled together. Almost like a “try me” feeling.
I am such a scent girl. Depending on my mood or location, I switch around which perfume I put on. Perfume makes me feel empowered and unique as each scent wears differently on different people.
This goes with the pulled together feeling, but having a fresh mani just does that for me. I love the feeling of fresh, clean, polish on my nails. Chipped nails and unkept cuticles drive me nuts so having my nails done is important to me. Lately I have been opting for a gel manicure because it minimized the chips and quite frankly, I don’t have time to keep polishing my nails every couple of days.
I do face and hair masks religiously. I love that nourishing feeling of my skin and hair and I feel like when I am consistent with both, my hair and makeup look great. When I slack with the masks, I absolutely notice a difference.
For The Home
I always have fresh flowers in my house. Whether the colors are bold and vibrant or monochromatic, the flowers bring so much life to the house. I grew up in a house that always had flowers everywhere so I’ve carried that into my own home.
Having a full fridge with healthy snacks doesn’t allow me the option to eat food I will regret later. I find that I operate my best when I am eating the healthiest, exercising, and drinking a ton of water. Sounds like a no-brainer but you’d be surprised how many people don’t. In my opinion, when you feel your best, there is no possible way you cannot exude confidence.
Almost every night I almost have some type of candle lit. I love walking into a room and catching a smell of whatever is burning. This is my own version of aromatherapy and it is incredibly calming and relaxing. Lately I have been really into soy candles as they don’t emit the chemicals and toxins most others do.
Yes, I know that some of these are pretty superficial but as I mentioned before, when I look good, I feel good. This may not be the case for everyone, but it works for me! Would love to hear about your favorite ways to give you a little boost!
