Pamper yourself

You may not realize this right away but grooming is a cornerstone of your style and personal image. It signals others about how well you treat yourself and, consequently (whether you want it or not) how others should treat you.

I'm not talking about the various messages one sends with makeup or nail polish choice. Even more basic is our personal grooming: how often we shower, our choice of bath products, etc.

This week try treating your skin like the most exquisite silk ever made. Moisturize liberally after bathing and pat dry skin instead of rubbing it. Use your beuaty products like they are the best ever made and like you spared no expense. Apply according to directions, yet gently.

Treat yourself to a manicure (your hands often speak volumes, even if there's no polish color) to keep cuticles groomed and nail length even. Moisturize hands before sleep. Do a facial at home.

Do you know all those things you're supposed to do to "stay beautiful" but never get around to doing. list them and do them! Get a blowout every now and then, try a new mask every couple of months and have a good relaxing soak in the tub.

You should treat others the way you want to be treated. But try treating yourself the way you'd like others to treat you and you'll see what I'm talking about! Sometimes all it takes is a fancy looking outfit and a good home-spa day to make you feel like you can take on the world!

    1. Hi Lauren

      Yes! I often take the time to give myself a mani at home because I'm much more productive afterwards, from feeling great and taken care of.

      Thanks for visiting. As a petite fashionista myself, I love your website! Feel free to ask questions or leave requests by e-mail!

  2. Totally agree! By taking care of yourself, you are equipped to take care of others. --jlgoodman@polyvore.com

  3. Wise words Ms Goodman

    As I see it, the thing is that if you are not in full control of yourself, you ultimately lack in other fields, namely self confidence. If you are well cared for in everyway, it's hard not to be a better person overall, including helping others.

    This is often good advice for new mothers that often let self care slip in their new found selfless-ness. They then end up feeling frumpy without being able to find a reason. You can't be your best when you feel frumpy inside!

    Thank you so much for showing your love!
