Nope, not talking about The TOM, no worries guys. IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m talking about makeup and jewelry, which I suppose might be worse I donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t know.
IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve never been the type of girl to put much effort into looking nice. I donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t think IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m really a slob but IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m also not a girly girl. I rarely wear makeup or wear accessories. IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m sure part of it has to do with the fact my mother rarely does any of that and I suppose she was my female role model. I sometimes really wish I had a sister.
Anyway, so lately I have been trying to put in a little more effort and I must admit that it feels nice. IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve been wearing necklaces and earrings more often. IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve been putting on some eye liner, eye shadow and tinted chapstick. I even went out and got a bunch of funky socks that IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve been coordinating with my outfits.
I donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t do all of this everyday but when I think of it I try to do it. I have been bringing makeup with me in my bag since I know I wonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t remember at 6am as IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m running around the house getting ready. I rarely do cover-up since Proactiv is still doing itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s job.
IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m even getting a few compliments here and there, or at least I think they are compliments. People have mentioned I have makeup on but maybe itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s just their subtle way of telling me maybe I shouldnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t. Either way, these little things make me feel a little more confident and a little confidence goes a long way.
