I am only going to say this once. Put the jogging pants away my friend. They don't do a thing for your booty, not to mention an elasticized waist band isn't anyone's friend. Okay, now that we've addressed the pants, I think we need to talk about your makeup routine. You're probably thinking 'what makeup routine?' Precisely! Spend some time on yourself! Just because you're studying, or swamped by the amount of papers you have to write doesn't mean you don't have time for yourself. Make.time. Showering does not count as 'pampering'. I know you're broke. You're going to have to deal with that. It isn't' going to change any time soon...so get thrifty! Turn that dorm room into a mini spa and give yourself a much needed study break. Paint those toes! We both know how much 'cave woman' toes drive us up the wall. Pluck those brows, and spend time on skin care. Stress is not doing any favours to your skin right now so you need to take care of it. At the end of the day no one is going to know the marks you got on that exam, but you will look back on pictures and think why didn't I care more about myself? You are working hard, so don't be so hard on yourself. Even if you aren't going out anywhere, get dressed. Do your hair, and put on some makeup. Trust me, it will do wonders for your self esteem.
Sending lots of love,
The wiser, older version of you.
This is my senior kindergarten school photo - and that was my favourite.dress.ever! I am pretty sure I still have it. Looking back at this picture I can see that not much has changed. I still like to rock a head tilt in most pictures (now that I've told you about my 'best move' you will notice it is a trend in most photos I take). Also, the brow enthusiast in me finds it interesting to look back at childhood pictures, before most of our high school 'tweezer happy' days began. It's reassuring to me to know that my eyebrows naturally started quite far apart. Whenever I get the chance to thread eyebrows that have never been shaped before, I try to stay as close to their natural shape as possible. My brows start pretty far apart from one another and I always wondered if it was a classic case of over-tweezing that gave me this shape. But after looking at this picture I can plainly see that the answer is: No - baby was born that way!
