Scarlet Letter

I've been dressing up in the office lately for no apparent reason. I just miss the feeling of prepping up, putting my make-up on, and looking forward to taking photos at the end of the day. It seemed shallow but it's one of the few things women love to do. I don't know, maybe some will think it's pure vanity. But most of us use it as a means to boost our self-confidence and to feel good about ourselves. It is not about the narcissistic satisfaction (well, for me, at least), it's about fighting your inner demons and a bit of raging hormones.

Recently, stress has been taking over. I felt so tired and haggard from battling everyday responsibilities that sometimes I tend to neglect the most important thing: myself

Now that I mentioned it, I will do my best to feel better and put myself first. I will get my mojo back and I will embrace the beauty of it. I vow to appreciate myself more like what I do before. I guess that should do the trick and you guys, should, too. Feel comfortable with your own skin and just love yourself more. Pamper yourself, wear heels, put make-up on. Just do what will make you happy! :)

Have a great day everyone!

PS. By the way, the title is no way related to Nathaniel Hawthorne's book. Just related it to the main shade of this look.
