I savor the days that I get to use my girl weapons of mass beautification. I crave the mornings I get to jump out of bed and put on a new beautiful outfit that I have been dying to wear. I am a girl who loves the rarity of an ALL OUT kind of beauty day.
What ever do I mean? Fashion is wonderful. It’s making a statement about who you are and what you feel best in. Sometimes it’s terribly confusing and you don’t understand how a some trends ever came in to style (*cough* my favorite pants used to be gouchos and I loved ponchos in middle school *cough*). It’s an art expression. People engage in fashion every single day and feel that doing this on the daily will give them the power they need to conquer their days. I love this idea but I am way too darn lazy for that.
Therefore, I stick to my leggings and super comfy v-neck and throw a cardigan over it if I’m feeling stylish that day. Make up is a laugh unless you count lately where I have been trying a little harder if I have a nice event or special occasion. Ambitious, I know.
So what is all this nonsense about savoring my days for an all out beautification?
The reason I don’t curl my hair often or put on lipstick every day is because I feel super empowered and confident when I pamper myself like that. For some people, this is something that doing daily would never grow old but for me? Doing that every day would become a daunting task and I would hate it. I would eventually start feeling the same way I do now and then how I would I step it up for special occasions? Prom dresses that freak everyone out and make me look like the weird red-headed child I have hidden so well the past 20 years. We don’t want that, ladies and gentlemen.
I savor my try-hard days. Today, for example. I have a big presentation as well as a ceremony tonight. I was SO excited this morning that I was up before 7 am, carefully slid on my black dress and became way to excited to curl my hair. After the curls were carefully sculpted to bounce and float exactly how I wanted them to, I steadily applied a clean layer of bright red lipstick to finish off the makeup earlier applied.
I feel damn good today. Every girl deserves to feel that way. Whether you can do this every day or savor them like myself, there is a hidden power in a gorgeous outfit, curled locks and your favorite lipstick. It will give you that extra UMPH you need to seize your day with confidence and we all deserve that.
It’s going to be a good day.
