April's resolution: 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.
How Did I Do?
I wore full makeup and hair every day. I dressed pretty much the same though about half of the month. As a mini challenge, I kept my nails always painted.--probably not the best thing for my nails, but it was fun.
What Did I Learn?
I thought people would notice, since a natural beauty I am not. I definitely need makeup to avoid the "OMG ARE YOU SICK?" questions. But no one said noticed--however, I guess no news is better than bad, right? I did feel better about myself, a bit more confident. One thing I noticed is that I felt the need to go somewhere, anywhere, to justify the need to put on makeup. It's like I didn't want to waste all the effort to sit around the house. I learned that, while I do dress up for me, I really do it for the public.
Would I Do It Again?
Yes! But it is good for the skin/hair/nails to take a break from all the fuss. Luckily, I'll never be a celeb, so I won't have the problem of having to be done up all the time.
For May, I'm on a beauty spending freeze. My collection has gotten a little out of hand, and I'm vowing to spend the month finishing up products/giving away/clearing up some space. Yup, no new, fun, dazzling beauty products for me! Luckily, I have Birchbox & MyGlam to tide me over. And if any of you wanna send me stuff, I'd be more than happy to take those products off your hands! ;)
What is your monthly resolution? What's your spending weakness (mine's obviously makeup)?
PS: Happy birthday to my Daddy.
