As much as life looks perfect sometimes on the outside and on Instagram, a lot of times i have days where my confidence is nowhere seen. Talking about beauty and makeup while starring in the morning at a blotchy face is not so fun. And sometimes i just do not feel like doing anything other than sitting in bed and doing nothing. There are periods where i feel like i could have taken more time to exercise, stay in shape, get organized more and so on. So i reach for some of these fabulous things that instantly lift up my spirit and put a smile of my face. Don’t think that is something i always do, trying to find the source of what originally brought me down is essential too but sometimes you need a quick fix-me up 🙂
5 things that put an instant smile on my face
A quick at home facial
When i feel puffy and blotchy i reach for my skincare essentials and get myself a quick rinse with a mask. The smell of a freshly washed face gives me energy, call me crazy. I choose some energizing masks with vitamin C or some aromatherapy face oil.
A quick spritz of my favorite perfume or any fresh perfume quickly lifts up my mood. Before i go to work, or even when i am home cooking i glam myself up with some fragrance. A scent could give you memories of good times and will make you feel more refreshed.

A red lip was a sign of confidence centuries ago. Putting on my favorite deep colored lipstick makes me feel like a strong woman. It is funny how just one simple stroke could really make my face look fresh and energized. It is not a myth, it works.
A Fresh Manicure
When cleaning, cooking, working around the house and running after my kid i sometimes really feel like a cleaning lady. Taking a quick break to do my nails is a game changer. Taking care of yourself is sometimes all you need to get that sunshine back into your life. Everyone needs to feel good about themselves and if it’s freshly done nails that does it, then go ahead.
Besides that i try to get fresh air, take a walk or call my best friend. There are many great ways to change that frown on my face. What is your confidence booster? Do you have days where you just don’t feel like it? Let me know what worked for you.
lots of love girls,
