Embracing Beauty Everyday

Monday, July 4, 2016

This post was sponsored by Vera Wang Frangraces as part of an Activation for Influence Central.  I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

There are so many things that happen everyday in our own towns and in the world that can really put a damper on things.  This year, I decided to make it a goal and a daily habit to focus on feeling beautiful everyday so that it can boost my mood and allow me to keep a positive attitude. 

For the longest time, I stopped wearing makeup, perfume, and doing anything special with my hair.  I would get up and brush my hair and teeth, wash my face, and head to work.  I never wanted to take the extra few minutes to pamper myself with a spritz of perfume, a dusting of bronzer, or a cute hairstyle.  I rushed myself out in the morning and it was never a good way to start my day.  As the day went on, I was always focused on things that were going wrong or a flaw with how my hair or face looked when I'd glance in the bathroom mirror at work.  The way I took care of myself was definitely affecting my mood and the mood of those around me.  That's no way to live, but like they always say - happiness and positivity begins INSIDE of YOU. 

So one day out of the blue I decided to wear makeup.  It was insane how much it actually made me feel beautiful and actually improved my overall mood.  I think it's because it gave me confidence and made me feel more like a beautiful fabulous woman.  All I do is put some mascara, liner, and foundation on.  I'm not covering up my natural self at all, I'm simply highlighting it.

I also started wearing perfume, specifically Vera Wang Marigold and Gardenia fragrance from the Vera Wang Embrace Collection.  It's amazing how much confidence I feel when I know I smell good.  I feel so beautiful in my own skin and I walk with way more confidence than I ever have.  It reminds me of being in a relaxing breezy field of flowers with the wind blowing in my hair.  That vision reminds me to actually do those things now - enjoy the simplicities of everyday life - the smells, the sounds, the beauty.  Life is so precious and everyday should be cherished and embraced.  I will no longer waste time beating myself up and thinking I don't look good or that I'm not beautiful.  Each morning when I spritz on Vera Wang Marigold and Gardenia I am celebrating myself.  The fruity burst makes me smile and remember that everywhere I go I should walk with confidence and know that I am beautiful.  

Vera Wang Embrace Marigold and Gardenia is available for purchase in-store and online at Kohl's for an ARV of $29.99.
