So… Winter has DEFINITELY taken its toll on me, what with all the yummy wintery foods and hibernation tendencies and also my total lack of gym-motivation. (IT’S BEEN FREAKIN AWESOME) anywaaaay, my tips for making yourself feel better while you work on the tedious task of fixing yourself for Summer are as follows:
1) Have awesome hair.
If you weren’t born with awesome hair, don’t worry, there are millions of hairdressers who have trained for years just to be able to fix it.
Also, technology is on our side with this one ladies, with ghd’s and other straighteners or curlers to help us make our hair look the way we want it to.
I’ve said it before, if your hair looks awesome, you feel awesome. It’s an instant mood fixer and confidence booster. Also, when you spend time on your hair, you’re investing time in yourself. I find it quite therapeutic actually.
2) Buy yourself 1 thing you don’t really have to try on.
For example: A nice new handbag, a pretty necklace or a pair of earrings. Alice Bands! Bangles! Scarves! Shoes are even ok, because you generally don’t pick up weight on your feet so your size will be the same! YAY! You DESERVE something new! Something new that won’t make you feel like a heffer!
3) Spend time with the people who like YOU.
This is one of my favourite ways to make myself feel awesome. Spend time with your friends/family/loverrrrr – these people (if they are like mine) won’t judge you for being a bit more rounded or white as a ghost after the winter season, coz they happen to love you for who you are. WIN.
I hope my tips will help you feel a bit better about yourself while you slave away making yourself ready for Summer. Ready or not, it’s on its way anyway…
…now, where did I put those gym shoes of mine…..
