The Sun is out, and I Look good.

I am a big believer in the sort of “look good, feel good mentality.” I feel my very best when my hair is straight and I am walking around in a full face of make up. My favorite mornings are those in which I get to spend at least 2 hours just messing around with my various eye shadow pallets and changing my lip color. I have been told, more than once, that I am my friend groups “girliest friend.” If I’m being honest, that superlative could not make me happier.

Just yesterday I had the pleasure of investing in a new eye shadow pallet, the Tartelette In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette by tarte at Sephora. I won’t say how much it was because an expenditure of this caliber would seem, to some, as frivolous. I will say, though, that I had a gift card. Thus, it doesn’t really matter.

This pallet is so lovely. What’s more, it makes me feel lovely. Some might think this is shallow, but I honestly believe that confidence can come from anywhere. I am wearing a combination of “funny girl,” “flower child,” and “smarty pants” on my lids as I type this, and as I strolled through campus today I felt powerful and strong.

I feel pretty, and when you’re having a bad day, sometimes that’s all you need.
