BeautyBoxBlog is really all about defining beauty through the eyes of all women. I want to create a culture that makes us all feel gorgeous and satisfied with the concept that happiness creates beauty. Beauty is something that comes from the inside out but that doesn't mean it can't work the other way around. If you feel great in that new black t-shirt, it will make you feel good on the inside which in turn works to create that feeling I am talking about. A psychological image...if you feel sexy, you are sexy. If you feel pretty, heck, you are! By following a culture of all that is beauty, you can't help but feel the warmth! So get ready to be blasted with it! I have to admit though,
If I am having a bad day, it seems that a bubble bath of Bath and Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Wash, my Rockstar vanilla soap from Lush and 3 scented candles lit on my dresser seems to help. I can't wear that old, haggard boyfriend t-shirt from 8 years ago to bed. Uh uh....it has to be the adorable pink one with sparkles and my hot pink leggings. Of course I must be fashion forward and coordinated to go to sleep. What if there is a fire and I need to escape? Those undies better be white or pink (same shade as my t-shirt) or else my whole system is shot! I also spray on perfume before bed. I don't wear perfume for anybody but myself. I go through an awful lot, but that's ok. Eau de toilette does have an expiration date ya know! I love many but my all time must have is 'Angel' by Thierry Mugler. I mix it up though as I want to smell myself and if I use the same scent day in and day out, I don't smell it anymore. What is the point of wearing the stuff if you don't get to smell it? So last night it was 'Gucci by Gucci', the night before I was feeling a little pick me up was in order and went for 'Happy' by Clinique. To be honest, I don't need a bad day in order to use this beauty ritual. This seems to be the norm for me every night!
I am a hair straightener too. I am not impressed with my curly tresses. The whole beauty idea to me means that if that bubble bath has curled my hair or made a little frizz of my fringe, I need to give it a quick straighten before bed too. Now I have had a few boyfriends call me crazy. "you are JUST going to bed, what is wrong with you? " has been stated a few times....well maybe I am a little nuts, but I am being totally honest, I feel sexy and pretty and cute when I lay my head down. If all it takes is 3 minutes with my handy straightening iron, well it's totally worth it!
If a few simple tricks like mine above make the difference in how you feel, what harm is there in indulging your soul with a little beauty? I actually look forward to this ritual each night and it has become a way to wind down. Some nights, it's all I can do to find the strength to remove my make up and brush my teeth! On the most part, this routine is a regular occurrence.
I will end with this, I do hope that you take my advice and create a beauty ritual of your own to end the day. Be a little selfish and indulge your mind and body with "pretty". It really does make you feel sexy and confident.
Have a wonderful day and night! Can't wait to share with again!
Until next time,
