|NYE ball outfit - aged 22|
Then I put on a stack of weight and had no clothes to choose from except for standard black uniform pants and top. These were not clothes I would hang up and get excited about. I hid them away because they depressed me. Besides, they were probably clothes I wore day to day anyway so I was probably wearing them! And over time, I forgot how it felt to be young and excited about dressing up.
Until this week baby!

Since then I have been trying to work out accessories and bag etc. I'VE MISSED DOING THAT! I haven't done that in ages. For years it's been a last minute decision as to what I will wear to events. And then it's been ultimately a decision between black....or black. And I haven't cared about accessories. Not because I don't care about accessories, but because I didn't care about myself.

And the other thing is, I did that pampering today that I mentioned. And it was cool. I tried doing it without feeling like I had worked for it. Years ago I would have done all of this stuff in the lead up to an event and felt awesome. Today I did it when I didn't feel like it and still felt awesome. :) I had a good day.
Then I went to pick up my finale dress. Then I went to use the vouchers that I got when I left my old beautiful job. They gave me the most amazing presents which included a beauty treatment voucher and a manicure. So I chose a pedicure because my feet were not in good shape, especially after being barefoot since the #princessaccident. So that was really nice. Then the manicure. Then I went and got my hair cut. 3 years since I lost half of it, it is now even all over and it feels amazing. My hairdresser who has been 'evening me out' for years and I had a little virtual high 5 that my hair is now ok. It's still mega long - but it's back to normal. :)
|It's all ok again. (And how cool is this photo?!)|
|My finale bag and necklace :) The bag is actually pink but I like this Instagram lens ;)|
|Not exactly a glass slipper. This is one of my finale shoes :) I have no idea what to wear on the other foot....also this photo looks like I have no leg above the space boot :)|
