My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

Yesterday I decided to do some low-budget pampering.  I’ve lost weight, but other than buying new clothes (required!) I really haven’t focused on my appearance. I’d just put my hair up in a pony tail and head out the door. I’m still on my sabbatical from work so I don’t feel the need to dress up just because I’m leaving the house. And if I’m being honest, I really did the bare minimum for work.

Well now it seems that I’m having a change of heart. I feel great about myself and all the work I’ve done the last year.  But I’m starting to get a little miffed at myself for being too low maintenance when it comes to how I look.

I think I never really bothered with it before because I worried about how an outfit looked on my frame. Did it fit was more important than does it flatter my figure. Perhaps I’m now feeling great about myself and I just want it to project it on the outside.

I started with a quick little inventory.

  • Shoes – 2 pairs of flip-flops and a pair of Nikes.  How sad.
  • Make-up: 3 lipsticks, blue eye shadow, no blush.
  • Hair: A ton of gray that needed to go.
  • Nails: All of my acrylic nails had popped off except for my right thumb nail. Wow, stay classy Dot!
  • Skin: Dry as hell.
  • Jewelry: Have a ton…so why not wear some?
  • Purses: 1

So yesterday I took care of those nasty grey hairs, gave myself a damn fine manicure, lotioned up, and made do with the little make up I own.

My new philosophy: Make everyday a day of beauty!
