Happy New Year everyone! We made it to 2022 can you believe it?! I never do resolutions because I stink at committing to them, but I do want to commit to a new year glow up for myself. I wanted to do this glow up for myself last year too, but I slacked-off and I never even started.
My main problem is that I’ve totally neglected my appearance ever since Covid hit. When the pandemic happened, I completely stopped going into the office and I have also stopped going out to bars and dinners with friends like I used to.
Since I don’t leave the house anymore except for errands and groceries, I’ve stopped dressing well, doing my hair, and doing makeup. The only clothing I’ve bought for myself since March 2020 has been pajamas, hoodies, socks, sneakers, and sweatpants. So attractive, isn’t it?
But I’m kinda tired of looking so drabby all the time. It’s been affecting my mood negatively too, as my self-confidence has dropped so much in the past two years. The lack of social interaction and the lack of care to my appearance has bummed me out. I feel like a new year glow up could help.
So I do want to start dressing up better everyday. Ok, probably not EVERYDAY, but definitely more days than I do now. And I don’t have anyone in my real life that will notice if I start improving my appearance, but I do have social media that should work instead. Is it sad if the only positive validation I have in my life anymore is from social media?
But is anyone else in the same boat? Want to consider doing a glow up for yourself as well? We could be new year glow up buddies. I’m serious.
I’ve taken a couple steps already to make this happen for myself. I’ve started the process of meeting other bloggers in real life – which will make me dress-up because I’m getting out of the house and meeting people again! I’ve already met one lady in-person who is in my same city, and I’ve started a website named Bloggers Offline to help facilitate larger-scale meetings in the future when the audience is large enough… (fyi – the registration form is up and running so you can participate too, hint hint).
Also, I’ve made an appointment at an aesthetics spa to get my eyebrows fixed on Thursday. Lol, I’m sure they’ll recommend more things to get fixed as well, but I’m open to it all! So all of this will hopefully get some momentum going for me to keep up appearances. Wish me luck! And join in if you want!
