It seems like motivation is the topic of the week. I've read several posts about it and I'm encouraged by the comments I've gotten. Thank you to those of you that have lent support. I'm always amazed how I get what I need, when I need it.
I just saw this on pinterest. I think this should be my new affirmation. I'm going to print it out and put it all over the house.
BlogHer has asked me to answer a question about looking my best. They've obviously been spying on me and my brillant transformation from frumpy mommy to well dressed mother of a Kindergartener who has to interact with people every day.
What are your beauty resolutions this year? How do you plan to shake up and streamline your routine? What are the good habits you are committing to developing?
It's a well known fact that I'm addicted to resolutions. I love starting a new year with a list of things that I'd like to accomplish and ways to make my life better. Lists are a very big part of my mental health!
Once I turned 40, I really started to look at how I could work on my beauty routine. Those pesky little lines are starting to form and I'm not getting carded at the liquor store anymore. I've purchased a number of products that I think are working very well.
My Beauty Resolutions:
Wash my face every night.
Use eye cream.
Drink 60 ounces of water a day.
Wear sunscreen AND make-up everyday.
Keep nails painted.
What has been helping the most is getting into the habit of taking care of my skin before I go to bed at night. Making a promise to myself that I'm important enough to spend 5-10 minutes taking care of.
This ritual is really very calming and prepares me for a good night sleep. Speaking of sleep, another resolution for 2012 is to go to bed at the same time every night....even on the weekends.
