Ten Tips for Beauty (Affordable)

So many women are dropping all their fun money into "miracles in a bottle" that promise to give you everything short of an orgasm. All the snake oil in the world doesn't work. Every so often I'm going to give quick tips to get ahead and/or get gorgeous.

1. Face mask! Aspirin, oatmeal, or lemon doesn't matter, but take care of your skin.
2. Exfoliate! Whether it's your face, lips or body, if you have sugar, an essential oil (baby oil works) mix 3:1 and slough the dead skin away.
3. Manicure/Pedicure! Easy as trimming your cuticles, shaping and applying for favorite color, your hands and feet need pampering too. Ped Egg will change your life, and don't forget to moisturize.
4. Scalp massage! Take the balls of your fingers and pretend your head is dough and you are kneading it. Circles all over, and don't forget to rub your neck and shoulders.
5. Music! Turn it on! Doesn't matter what kind, but it has to be something that makes you feel good. Remember to dance like no one's watching and if they are, who cares?
6. Clean up your brows! They are one of the things that can make or break your overall "look." If you're in between waxing/threading conceal the hairs by using a concealer and spritzing it with hairspray to set. Don't go overboard or you will look like something is growing above your eyes.
7. Lists! Make a list of ten things you like about yourself. Look and the mirror and repeat what your wrote and tell yourself how beautiful you are!
8. Smile at your haters! Don't be stupid or they will see you as crazy. You know that look that says, "I know something you don't" It works every time. Haters want to see you look sad, flip it and make them even more jealous. I promise you'll feel better.
9. Posture! Practice sitting, standing and walking straight. It comes across as confident and people find confidence sexy. A mediocre women who appears confident will go from a 6 to a 10!
10. Wear a bold lipstick! Do you know how sexy lips are? Well why aren't you working one of your best assets? Everyone can wear a bold lippie, even if you wear glasses you will turn more heads than you think. Try it!

I'm not going to say beauty is not important, but we all have to take what we have and make it the best. So you don't have great hair, experiment with color or a style that suits your face. On the heavy side? Please! I know thick women who have more game than all the skinny Penny's on the planet. Package yourself well and your weight will be the least of your worries. Remember, you look good and you'll feel good. Go!
