One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. I wear colours that I really like, I wear makeup that makes me feel pretty, and it really helps. It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see. Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and you must decorate it.

Excuse the bedhead. Though I never do “Face of The Day” (FOTD) posts, I have found a new discovery that I want to share!

I wanted my makeup to be quite feminine and Mother’s Day-friendly today, but – as I am rocking weekend laziness – wanted to make no effort. The Makeup Gods were feeling me as I saw a little tub of Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Pale Pink sitting atop my miscellaneous beauty box. Though the only other makeup I wore was a swipe of eyeliner, this baby gave a really fresh pop of colour when used sparingly on the cheeks. I also used it under Rodial’s Glam Balm Lip on my lips.

1-minute makeup. Holla.

“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”

“Women of all looks, shapes, sizes, everything, if they recognize how beautiful they are -because they all are – then they carry it that way. And you can see that. Confidence is reflected in how they walk and how they dress and how they speak and how they carry themselves. It’s just amazing.”
