I have always dressed and done my make-up in a way that was comfortable. I learn a technique and develop a style and just stick with it. I recently noticed that I have fallen into what I would call give up mode. Give up mode for me at least consisted of leggings, t-shirts, little to no make-up, and a messy bun. I am in no way saying that women in general including myself can’t have down days where you just lounge around in comfortable clothes and relax. I certainly still do that from time to time. I decided to its time for a new me and a new blog.
Teaching My Girls by Example
I have been trying to teach my 8 and 9-year-old that taking care of yourself especially when you get older is important. They are little girls so sometimes they skip showers, don’t brush their hair, and don’t change out of their pajamas. I’m not trying to tell them to doll-up and be super cute every day just to do the basics and be clean. I decided if I was going to make them do it I should lead by example.
My Journey Begins
I’m not sure if it has to do with the COVID-19 lockdown or if I finally realized that I stop myself from doing what I really want to do but I have decided to change things up. I didn’t like my style or the way I was doing my hair and make-up. I wanted a more glamorous look. I cleaned out my closet, started buying clothes I would never let myself get before, and experimenting with make-up.
I want to get out of my comfort zone and do the things I always stop myself from doing. I’m not sure why I do this but I talk myself out of things all the time. I might want to spend my day playing video games or hanging by the pool and I convince myself to do something more productive. I want to get out of that habit and be different.
Doing This For Me
I’m not doing all of this to please anyone but myself. My husband is also making some changes to his wardrobe and doing a skincare routine with me. We want to make positive changes and be good role models to our girls.
Revamping My Blog
I feel like I’ve been stuck in a rut for a while now. Afraid to try new things and be adventurous. I am revamping my blog and focusing on my journey to change. I want to document the process and share it with all of you. I plan to write weekly about make-up tips and experiments I do, hairstyles and products, and new clothes. I would love to hear from all of you and what you think of my journey and what yours looks like. We can inspire and help each along the way.
