New Year Glow Up

Happy New Year everyone! We made it to 2021 can you believe it?! I never do resolutions, but I do want to commit to a new year glow up for myself.

Definitely one thing I’ve slacked on during 2020 is my appearance. Bc of all the regulations due to the pandemic, I no longer go to an office and have stopped going out to bars with friends like I used to occasionally.

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 has been pajamas, hoodies, socks, 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 this past year. 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? πŸ™

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. πŸ™‚

  1. Same here with appearances! Though I don’t go out much these days anyway so I’ve had a little longer to acclimatise to it. I try to keep the days of PJs and super casual stuff minimal because like you’ve found, you don’t feel great after a while. I always get dressed, comfy jeans or slightly smarter comfy trousers, brush my hair etc. It’s my skincare routine that’s slipped over winter. My skin looks awful! Here’s to hoping that Covid will be a thing of the past soon so we can go back out again!

    Happy New Year!

    1. Interestingly enough, my skincare has actually improved due to covid! I think it’s because I stopped wearing makeup and now I’m just clear and smooth all the time now. I love it. I might never go back to FULL makeup like I used to, like the foundations and powders. But I do need to go back to the eyeliners and mascaras and maybe lipsticks too. Best of luck to you in 2021, my friend! πŸ™‚

  2. That’s a goal of mine too! I gotta keep telling myself to wear the dang outfit! Everyday is a special occasionπŸ₯‚ happy new year!
