Beauty is more than your dress size or the number on the scale. There are many things that make us beautiful inside and out and we all have certain habits and things that get us through each day. I’ve made a list of my must haves that make me feel happier, prettier and more confident.
More Than Skin Deep
I’m getting pretty close to hitting the big 4-0 so a solid beauty regimen is a must for me! I can not live with out my Clarisonic. I use it every single morning and night with La Mer gel face wash (Goop and Honest are also great). In the morning I use Juice Beauty’s antioxidant serum, La Praire’s eye contour cream with a Foreo eye massager and Sisley’s all day all year, trust me on this one, it will change your skin. It was basically the only lotion I could use during my pregnancy that would not break me out! I top all of that off with BareMinerals tinted moisturizer with spf.
At night, I do it all over again but use the La Mer Regenerating Serum and Sisley’s night cream. Expensive, I know, but it’s my face and I hate needles and I’m trying to avoid botox for as long as I can.
It’s a good idea to develop a good relationship with a makeup sales person. They will usually hook you up with a million free travel size samples of the stuff you use and call you when it’s gift time or when they are doing complimentary facials at the store (if they don’t, find another person or store to buy from). You can usually find many of these products on Rue La La for a discount too.
More Than Your Granny Panties
Yep, I’m chubby and confident. That doesn’t mean that I don’t try to smooth things out as much as possible. A great push up bra and undies are confidence and mood changers.
- Soma’s Vanishing Tummy underwear and Push up bra keep things up and perky without compromising comfort. No digging in and mommy flap jacks are kept in check.
- Spanx is my go to for keeping it tight under formal and clingy dresses. Only snap bottoms- not the bottom opening thing. I don’t know how to use it and I’m not about to start practicing.
- Yummie Tummie has the best leggings and cami’s. I LOVE them!! They hold you in place, keep their shape forever and the leggings are not see through at all.
More Than Noise
We all have our down days, and for those days I have a little playlist I like to call Get It Girl!!! Here are a few of my favorite songs that either give me a quick confidence boost or put me in a happy mood. What’s your go to favorite song? Leave me a comment! ENJOY!
