Okay, let’s see a show of hands. Raise your hand if you put everyone else 1st……Okay, now raise your hand if you’ve ever felt GUILTY buying something for yourself. Uh-hmmm. I thought so!
You are not alone! I do it too! I don’t even think twice when it comes to buying things for the kids. Stuff for the house? Done! Hubby needs something? Got it! Groceries? Check! Clothing for everyone? Yep!
But what about YOU? Over the last year, I’ve come to the realization that 1) Hello? We need clothes too! 2) You DESERVE it!
Now I’m not saying you need to go out right now and blow money you don’t have on things you don’t need. I AM saying, that with all of the amazing deals out there for Cyber Monday, (and for the next 2 months) it’s okay if you get 1 fabulous thing for yourself…..it’s on SALE for crying out loud!
Do you need permission? Super…..I give you permission! Here is of my favorite sites:
http://www.myshape.com – TONS of great designer clothing (if you input all of your measurements they will only select things that flatter AND FIT you!). Cyber Monday = 50% off hundreds of things.
Also check out overstock.com, ebay.com, amazon.com, even zappos.com. And my favorite shoes that are sold at Fredricks of Hollywood are currently 25% off AND FREE shipping! Seriously, go stimulate the economy, bring peace and joy to your home, put a smile on your face, and buy yourself ONE fabulous thing.
I’d love to hear from you! Please share what 1 thing you bought (or are going to buy) for yourself. Good luck!
Recently I asked everyone on facebook (join the fun by clicking on the cute high heel below with the facebook “f” on it) – “What stumps you the most when it comes to being glam?”
The most common question was how to look glam, without looking like you are trying to hard. Or how can you look glam when you are doing something casual, like going to the grocery store? So I answered these concerns in the short video below. Please leave your comments below. And enjoy!
Okay. So what happened? You think you leave all the teenage drama, angst, and ….. pimples behind in your teen years. Only to discover those pesky skin problems come back stronger than ever in your 30’s and 40’s. F-U-N. And when you have a poor complexion, it’s hard for you to feel confident facing the world.
It’s not fun and you want to know what to do. Here are a few of my favorite skin tricks. Shhhhh! These tips will be our little secret!
Get your hormones balanced. Sometimes something as simple as getting a new birth control prescription (whether you need it for contraceptive use or not) will make all the difference for you to have great looking skin. Be sure to find a physician that specializes in hormones. Not all doctors have equal training in this area. Find a good one. They are worth it!
Try products with “Active Ingredients.” Under your physician’s recommendation, try Retin A, or products with Glycolic acid. You can even purchase some of these products from the drug store.
Drink veggie juice. This one sounds crazy, but honestly, I’ve been drinking one of these a day, and my skin is GLOWING! And I’m not pregnant! Haa! You are what you eat. And don’t even try to deny the truth about that!
Here is a video of how to make the veggies shakes I’ve been drinking. Even though the advice is not coming from a mom, at least the guy giving the advice is cute. 😉 And these shakes are so good, even my kids will drink it.
Enjoy! And feel free to share some of your favorite skin tips below. Wishing you a beautiful day.
The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.
