What's your beauty pick me up?
I am not feeling so hot today. I hate being sick, especially when it is so nice outside. When I am sick and have no energy, getting primped is the last thing I want to do. Although it takes more energy that I care to give, putting my hair in a cute high bun and throwing on a few coats of mascara, some blush and a sweet pink lip gloss are all i need to pick myself up. It makes me feel so much better. I truly believe that sometimes you just need to look good in order to feel good!
So whats your beauty pick me up? Whether it is painting your nails in your new favorite shade or applying a few swipes of your favorite lip gloss, let me know what makes you feel better on your not feeling so hot days!
