Be Beautiful

I’ve been thinking about what happens when a woman develops unhealthy narcissism. I’m sure you’ve seen this, just as I have. As women, if we give ourselves permission to be so self absorbed, we can become out of control and unattractive. To avoid this personality trait, I’m reminded that it’s important to look outside of myself.  By this I mean doing things like: volunteering;  developing good listening skills; looking out for others; and being kind. Regular self examination is really helpful too. Ladies, please don’t become vain, practice a few of the things I’ve mentioned and be beautiful. Have a wonderful day.

Every now and then I come across a good reference book. This particular one is targeting woman who are interested in style.  The book covers over 100 how- to’s.  The information is very useful and timeless. I first saw this book in a home decorating store. I purchased it and mailed it to my sister – I think shes enjoyed it.  I, myself, have rented it from the library twice now.  I recently gleaned information from this book before buying a double string of vintage pearls I had spotted at a thrift store.  I’m very pleased with my purchase.  Some topics include how to:

Find the perfect pants

Pick a makeup brush

Trim your bangs

Buy pearls

Arrange a bookshelf

Buy vintage clothes

Create a 5 star bedroom

Decorate with color….

I am sure you will find something useful in this book if you pick it up or rent it from your library. Have a great week.

Ladies, I would like to stress how important it is to look nice daily. It really doesn’t take much to look fresh.  It can be as simple as moisturizing your skin; applying mascara; adding lip balm; and combing your hair.

I always like to add a little extra touch when I am going shopping; out for coffee; or to friends for dinner. Sometimes, it is as simple as putting on a crisp tapered cotton shirt;  dark blue jeans; and dangling earrings. My husband and I work together in our home and I like to take a few extra minutes every day to look nice for him too. The extra attention you spend on your appearance will make you feel better and will not go unnoticed.  I believe there is truth in the saying ” if you look good you feel good if you feel good you do good”.  Have a wonderful day.
