Little things that make me smile...
Feeling comfy-sexy: I love getting to that point at the end of the day where my work or little tasks are done, errands are completed, and I know I can slip off my tight jeans or boots, and put on something comfy (this is also where my Walmart wine can come in!). However, especially after a crappy day, I still like to feel pretty. My boyfriend usually heads to my place after work, so sometimes I like greeting him in something cute, even if I don't want to dress up. If you have a boyfriend or husband, grab one of his shirts (a button up dress shirt works perfectly) and put your hair up in a bun or ponytail at the very top of your head - the messier the better! Instant cuteness. If you're single, no worries! While you're drinking a glass of wine, slip off those heels, and put on your favorite PJs or baggy t-shirt. Play some music or put on a favorite TV show (see below) and make yourself an amazing dinner. I'm the least domestic girl you'll ever meet (thank goodness Steve cooks, right?), but I absolutely love cooking up something while drinking a little wine. Even if I'm by myself for the night, I light candles and really take in the alone time. It's important to schmooze yourself, too!
Carrie Bradshaw: Yeah, I said it. I didn't get hooked on Sex and the City until it had already been over for some time, but I absolutely love it now. Infact, I just caught a mini-marathon starting on E! What perfect timing. I had a rough overnight, complete with nausea and a pounding headache, so this might be just what I need to wake me up a bit and put me in a better mood. This show just makes me feel all good inside and reminds me to be one. amazing. woman.
