Kimora Lee Simmons said it best: “Always Dress Like You Are Going To See Your Worst Enemy!”☝☝☝
We’ve all been there.
We run out of the house to maybe get a cup of coffee or pick up our dry cleaning.
Many times, not looking our best thinking no one’s going to see me, I’ll be quick.
And then out of nowhere, you run into your ex, boss, newest crush, worst enemy, anyone and everyone!
I am one of them as well, here’s my story…
It was one of those days where I had so many things to do and not enough time to do them.
That day, I spent half the day cleaning my house.
Then I decided to get a quick workout in, so I threw on my gym clothes and ran out the door.
Got to the gym, did my workout.
Then realized I wanted to get a new pair of earrings as I was going out that night.
So I thought, I’ll run up to Macy’s real quick.
Unfortunately, I didn’t take a minute to look in the mirror to see what I looked like.
As I was gazing over the jewels I heard someone yelling “Patti, is that you?”
Ugh. Just what I didn’t want to hear.
I took a quick glance into the mirror on the counter and was immediately horrified! I looked like death.
My friend from my previous life in the corporate world was all dressed up and I looked like what the cat dragged in.
And I’m an Image Consultant! (This is where it is important to have a good sense of humor).
Of course she was very pleasant and we were happy to see each other.
After sharing hellos and how are you’s, she asked me what I was doing, that she heard I had a business but didn’t know what it was?
And there in that moment, I had to say I was an Image Consultant and Personal Shopper.
Feeling anything but at that one moment.
We laughed it off because I told her about my day and she understood.
But from that day on, I always make sure I look my best even if I’m just running up the block to 7-11.
So here are some quick tips on looking good, even if you’re just running up the block!
Apply some tinted skin corrector.
I like Garnier Ultra-Lift, aside from giving you a little bit of color, it also has a sunscreen in it.
Put on a little lip gloss/chapstick.
I like Philosophy Pink Frosted Animal Cracker, gives just a hint of pink!
Stay hydrated and drink water.
Makes your skin look healthy and fabulous!
You be totally glowing.
Look good even at the gym.
I have five gym outfits and continually rotate them.
They look and I feel so good when I wear them!
Hair gel is your best friend.
I know everyone has different hair, but I find hair gel to be a blessing.
So many people walking around with bed-head…seriously.
My favorite, VO5 does the trick!
Men, socks and sandals do not go. Under any circumstances, under any weather conditions. Please stop!
SMILE 😉 the one thing you can always do to make yourself look great!
All it takes is a little time and effort.
And at the end of the day, always keep your sense of humor.
Because it happened to me AGAIN.
My son wakes me up and tells me he needs a ride to work and that I literally have not 5 minutes to get ready.
I literally throw on some clothes and splash some water on my face.
We jump in the car and I tell my son we HAVE to stop at 7-11 because I need a cup of coffee.
So both of us walk into the store and just as we are walking in I hear, ‘Hey momma”.
I look up and see my son’s best friend’s dad ☹☹☹
And I’m horrified!
