Bad days. We all have them. "It's just one of those days," you say. You feel kind of down, but maybe you can't put your finger on exactly why that is. There's just a general "blah" feeling following you around. You want to wear your comfy yoga pants and curl up on the couch or in bed, and have the world just leave you alone. Yes, that seems like the best solution to a blah day. But, how likely is it that the world will actually leave you alone? Not very, right? So, what's a girl to do?
First things first. Wear the lipstick. I know it may sound silly, but every time you pass by the mirror, instead of thinking, "ugh, who let her out of the house?" you'll see a pop of color on your lips. It will brighten your face, and maybe even coax a smile from those lipsticked lips. Pick your favorite color, or go bold and wear red.
Second, brush your hair. Don't let other people wonder if you did "bed head" on purpose. You didn't. No one does. This style only looks good on the under-five set. Notice that I'm not saying you have to wash your hair or blow dry. Just brush it into place, or if it doesn't want to go, put it in pony-tail-time-out.
Last, put on an outfit you feel great in. You know the one. You always get compliments on it. People tell you it's a great color for you, or "you look great!" or they ask if you've lost weight. That's what you want to be wearing today. If you can't feel super on the inside, at least you can look fabulous on the outside. And, maybe you've noticed. Often when you look good, and you know it, you get a little confidence boost. The "blahs" may even quit tailing you and go bother someone else.
Remember. Wear the lipstick. It's the first step to turning "blah" into better.
