Inner Beauty Out - Entry #1 & 2

The other day I was looking into the mirror (pre make-up) and I realized that I was looking like the proverbial 'BEFORE' picture. I thought to myself, "that just won't do"; then I decided to begin doing something about it each day.

Day One:
I went to the library and looked up books on style, fashion, etc. (Being the college graduate and bookworm - not nerd, just bookworm - that I am I am assuming that much of the information I need I can find in a book.) The library did NOT let me down. I checked out, "How Not to Look Old" by Charla Krupp. This book is going to be a wonderful resource while I am trying to bring out my inner beauty.

Day Two: After flipping through the book I decided to do some, small thing each day to feel beautiful both inside and out. Some days may be small and others may be HUGE (like cutting and highlighting my hair) but each day I would like to do something to feel more beautiful. So, my first purchase was this kit:

You may be wondering exactly what this kit is. It is a "Form-A-Brow" Kit. I am fairly Low Maintenance when it comes to appearance and right now I am on a DIY budget for this endeavor. So, I found an option that was highly recommended that would allow me to make flawless brows. BUT, you have to pluck - not wax. So, we will see how that goes. I always sneeze when having my eyebrows plucked or waxed. it is uncanny.

If you want to try out this little kit along with me it can be purchased here. One of my dear friends and I are going to try it out as soon as it comes in and I'll let everyone know how it goes.

The idea of something both inner and outer is good....inner being anything from scripture reading to poetry writing to finding quiet 'restorative time' for self --- outer, makeup ideas, exercise, new do's, lotion session, etc....All for the well balanced, beautiful lady! Sharing tips is fun too!
