I am a big believer that making time for beauty can really impact the way that you live your life. When I say "making time for beauty" I don't mean making yourself constantly think about how you look, rather I mean making it a priority to spend at least 5 or 10 minutes on yourself every morning and every night. When you wake up and are in a rush, throw on a t-shirt, throw up your hair and run out of the door, you are setting yourself up for a day that is chaotic, in a rush, and unproductive. I truly believe that taking that extra 5 or 10 minutes to run a brush through your hair, put on a touch of makeup and wear an outfit that makes you feel good totally changes your day. You go about your day confident, productive and pulled together. You feel good about yourself so you look people in the eye, you stand up for yourself and you seize the day. Equally important in my opinion is taking another few minutes for yourself at night. Put on your lotion, your face creams and serums and tell yourself you are beautiful. You will go to bed feeling good about yourself and wake up feeling refreshed. Just by taking these few minutes in the morning and the evening it can really change how you go about your day. It is not really about how you look but rather how you feel about yourself and how you carry yourself, thats what is important. So take those few extra minutes and love yourself.
