A Charming Routine

If you know me in the real world, you know I can be frumpy. I tend to wear my hair in a messy bun almost every day and maxi skirts are my favorite piece of clothing ever invented. The thing is, however, I still try to feel good about myself, I just do it in a different way. How, do you ask?
My daily routine may not always involve makeup or a blow dryer, but it does involve a few other things that make me feel good about myself.

I start with what's underneath. It doesn't matter if I'm going to be the only person who knows in any particular day, pretty underthings always make me feel good about myself. If I'm not wearing makeup, I make sure my face is washed and my eyebrows look nice. My nails are always filed and clean (gel manicures are one of my indulgences in life) and I make sure that I smell pretty. The last bit in this formula is a bow, usually in my hair, though I've been known to wear them on my shoes or on a ring (too). It's not a complicated routine, and I can (and usually do) get out the door in less than fifteen minutes, but it works for me!

I am exactly the same way! At the very least, I have my eyebrows filled in. I rarely wear eye makeup - only on weekend nights out....just not my thing....

I never wear eye makeup - other than mascara. My eyes are just too sensitive! Maybe that's why I don't tend to wear makeup at all?

I've been wearing it since I was sixteen! I don't know that I could wear anything else :)

I do tend to always get fixed up with makeup and my hair done, but I totally agree with wearing pretty lingerie and smelling nice too! Those are both so important, and I'm definitely planning on expanding my nice lingerie stock as I get more money!
