Hola, mujeres hermosas (In other words….Hello Beautiful women). As part of my “goal getter” mentality, I am learning Spanish, BUT it is going very very slow (Ugghhhhh…Me)
One day I was having a chat with my friend, C. During the conversation, she asked me an amazingly prolific question. “What is the one thing you can put on that will INSTANTLY make you feel beautiful?” Huh…Crickets. Well this caused me to really think. I am so so much with an enormous beauty routine, and multiple rituals (so I have been told). How in the world could I choose ONE thing? But my one instant beauty came to mind…a turtleneck (do not judge… Ha Ha Ha). When I slip that contraption on, I immediately feel like a classic beauty. I love a turtleneck in ALL forms. Give me long sleeve, sleeveless, 3/4 length sleeve, ribbed, cotton, racerback, chunky, no matter the form, just give them all to me. However, I really love black, but I will take whatever I can get my hands on (LOL).
Once again, this was a question was too delicious to keep to myself. So you know I surveyed my gorgeous girls (hey y’all). Here is what some of them said.
C – Banana Republic Classic Perfume
La’Missy – A good fitted jacket (Indeed)
Wife – Serious pair of fitted jeans
Mom – Earrings
Bestie – A new pair of zapatos (shoes) I am bilingual…remember
Old E – Lip Gloss
Kat – A fresh weave (Amen)
When I asked the question and received the answers, I was simply amazed because not one of these lavish ladies said the same thing. Seriously! I loved getting more insight into the women that I adore. Isn’t it mind boggling how many different things we consider beautiful and the great thing is that we are all correct. I have come to the conclusion through my many years of living and conversing with the wonderful women who surround me is the most beautiful thing is being YOURSELF.
Lavishites, put on your turtleneck, spray on your perfume, slip on those new shoes, flip that fresh weave…whatever makes you feel beautifully confident and step high! Own your uniqueness and you will never go wrong.
Before I depart, everyone say a collective “thank you” to C for starting this great conversation. She is one smart cookie!
Hasta la proxima vez…ALWAYS remain lavish
