Look Your Finest Every Day in 2011

[ 0 ] January 12, 2011 |

Looking your finest is as simple as taking a little time for yourself each day. Add one of the simple steps below to your morning routine and you’ll feel better about yourself in no time!

The most difficult part about resolutions is sticking to them. Make sure you give yourself time each day to do something for yourself – you’re worth it!

Stretching/Yoga

This is a great way to feel better each day. But, I must admit, this is something that I’ve tried to incorporate into my routine many times and it’s always fell to the wayside. This year I’m attempting to make it a necessary part of my routine. It is good for your health and your body. It also relaxes you in the morning before beginning a stressful day.

The only catch is: you’ll have to wake up a few minutes earlier if you want to include this in your morning routine.

Go Shopping!

Get something that you wouldn’t normally wear. If your closet is full of black and gray, pick up a dress or top in a bold color. People will notice, and I’m betting you’ll get a few compliments.  Try one of the items below to step out of your fashion box.

From left to right: Scarf Neck Top, $34.50, Gap; Striped Dropwaist Dress, $130.00, Banana Republic; BR Monogram Pink Sequin Skirt, $82.99, Banana Republic (See our Banana Republic and Gap coupons).

Primp Up Your Beauty Routine

Another year has passed, which also means you’re another year older. It’s time to update your beauty routine. The products you use should change as you get older. So, take a look at what’s in your makeup bag now. Is there anything that you no longer use? If you’re still using a dry skin formulated moisturizer, are you sure you still have dry skin? Evaluate, and make necessary changes.

Also, try sprucing up your makeup routine. One day, try wearing lipstick if you normally don’t. Or if you never wear eyeliner – try it out! It’ll be a nice change and it’s a great way to boost your confidence.

Get a Haircut

Try a new look. So many of us stick to the same hairstyle year after year. It can get a little drab. A new hairstyle can change everything. Going from long to short is a huge step for many people, but it’s one that will change your look completely. So, if you’ve been thinking about making a change, now’s the time to do it!

If you’re not sure what style you’re looking for, try InStyle’s Hollywood Hair Virtual Makeover! It’s an easy and fun way to try on different styles without actually taking the plunge.
