For March/Lent, I gave up cupcakes/cakes. MISSION COMPLETED!! I think this was the easiest challenge so far.
I live in a huge city, and I don't often run into the same people twice. That makes it easy and tempting to wear whatever and not do my makeup (note: the only thing I'm vain about is my hair, so that's always on point, haha). Growing up in a small town, I always felt the need to look nice, even when going to Wal-Mart. People will talk about how you've "let yourself go" if you don't!
But whom am I dressing up for? Me? The world? What should it matter what people think? Should their opinion of me, a stranger, influence my self-esteem?
I've decided to a little experiment.
So for April, I'm putting forth the effort, every day. While my job has a super casual, nonexistent dress code, I'm going to put for the effort. I'm going to look nice and wear full makeup (I usually just escape with concealer) for one month, instead of when I feel like it. I want to see how it makes me feel, and if people notice.
PS: How was your Easter/Passover? I thought I'd throw in a flashback of me and my sis J!
Lil Elle, Lil J...note the Easter hats & dresses! And baskets!
