More and more of us are spending time at home, whether this is to work from home or stay at home for another reason. Some are happy to wear casual lounge wear or pyjamas because they feel more ‘comfortable’, while others worry about being caught off guard i.e. when the doorbell suddenly goes, or that impromptu video call.
Just because you are at home doesn’t mean you can’t dress up when you feel like it.
After all, you deserve to feel as glamorous and as polished as you like.
Here are some tips to help you look amazing and feel fabulous even or shall I say especially if you are at home.
It all starts with how you view yourself. When you decide to make an effort to take care of your appearance, that’s when the ‘magic’ happens. You start to see yourself as someone worthy of being admired and loved. You feel valued for who you are and what you are about. You suddenly realise that you don’t need an excuse or reason to feel glamorous, such as a party or event, you have a right to dazzle whenever you want to.
Being at home gives you a chance for you to experiment with different ways of applying your make-up and discover new shades of colour that perhaps wouldn’t use daily. You can be daring and delight in the knowledge that you are doing it just for you. So, go ahead, have fun and experiment to your heart’s content. The beauty about make-up is that you can create a whole new personality at the tip of a brush.
Personal grooming can go a long way to achieving that polished look. Don’t be afraid to ‘flirt’ with new ways of styling your hair and treat your tresses to that deep conditioning treatment you’ve been putting off for a special occasion, because life is its own special occasion.
Lavish some of your loving attention to your wardrobe and go through it, discarding the clothes you no longer wear and keeping only the clothes you feel amazing in. Keep a mixture of comfort, warm, pretty, glamorous, chic and stylish pieces that you can’t get enough of! This way, when you get up in the morning you will look forward to putting on your ‘dream pieces’ and every day will feel like a fairy tale, with you as the queen of your castle.
Accessories can give you that quick pick-me-up throughout your day. For instance, if you’re rushing around getting things done, a sneak peek at a sparkly gem or colourful bracelet can give you that instant lift to help carry you through to your next task. It focuses our attention on all the things that are beautiful in the world. Love inspired trinkets are always a nice way of bringing back happy memories and getting that ‘fuzzy’ feeling all over again.
When you look amazing; you feel fantastic, the two go hand-in-hand. It’s a big confidence-booster too. And as you go about your day, being your charming, beautiful self just remember;
You deserve this.
Be Bold, be beautiful, be you!
