Am I Losing My Feminine Appeal?

Yesterday I was browsing beauty tags in hopes of finding inspiration and motivation to spark my desire to care for my skin that I’ve  obviously ignored this winter when I stubbled across StoryingMoments post on ‘LUSH 101 ‘.  It reminded me of the days when my sister gifted me with Lush soap. I would be so excited to shower just to smell and feel the fresh ingredients of the porridge soap that revealed such soft, luscious skin. As the oats in the soap exfoliated my skin and covered the bottom of my tub I enjoyed every moment of my luxurious shower. Then it hit me,  Am I losing my desire of caring for my skin……. my beauty?

I have neglected myself.

My weekly pampering regimens that made me feel beautiful, relaxed, and happy are just fond memories.

Since my days mainly consist of completing a week’s worth of work within 8 hours and my nights include me trying to regain my strength and my likeness of the 28 year old that I am I have made no time to do what keeps me feeling beautiful. Now this may seem pointless or unnecessary to some, but for me it is needed. I am not me without my weekly beauty/pampering  regimen. In fact, this has been going on for too long it’s no wonder I haven’t been able to recognize myself.

For months I’ve been trying  to figure out why my confidence is low and why I try hide my blantant disrespect of my rough, dry skin. Somehow I pushed my me time to the bottom of my priorities.

Luckily for me I have plenty of time to get my life back in order. No more homely, dreary days for me. I need to get back to what makes me confident, comfortable, and calm then everything else fall in place.

Updates coming soon

  1. I often forget to take care of myself as well. I look down and notice my nails are chipped and the skin on my face is dull because I haven’t been taking care of it.

    It is so important to take the time and be good to yourself! 🙂 Thanks for the reminder.

  2. i was just talking with a friend about appearance. i think when you invest a little time into yourself it boosts your confidence and it will show. it will also affect how people interact with you. BUT I will say, it is winter…there isn’t much motivation to do much during this season.
