Something Special

One of the nicest things to do for yourself is make or buy something that is special to you. You don’t have to spend a lot of money. The objective is not to just purchase or make something nice for yourself; it is to do something that makes you feel at peace with yourself and calm in general. We take so much for granted sometimes in our everyday life that we forget to pay attention to things that really matter in our lives.

By being more aware of what brings you peace and calmness. You will attract more of that type of energy into your life and reduce the stress in it. You will be focussing on what you would like to be part of your life. Your life is more filled with beautiful moments because they are more conscious moments in your life. These small and simple changes can bring in some really wonderful changes.

You start to see more money in your life from a new job. Maybe you find a house that fits your personality better. By bringing more beauty into your life. You start to see more beautiful moments in your life with the  you spend your time with.

Buying yourself flowers that you find visually pleasing or a perfume that makes you feel special that is worn for special occasions. It can be a really nice bottle of wine or music that you’ve wanted to get.  It can be as big or small just so it makes you feel calm and peaceful when you use, taste or listen to it.

By being more at peace and calm we attract things to us more easily than we can when we’re stressed out and unfocused. This is why we sometimes see a person suddenly get all these wonderful or not so wonderful changes that seem to cascade in people’s lives sometimes. That doesn’t mean that people don’t sometimes have moments where their world seems to be out of control. It means that they might be ready for new changes and things are making way for the new by exiting the old.

The Mating Game

I think it’s interesting that when people buy the latest car they want to get all the features. When it comes to putting themselves out there to meet a man or woman they don’t always think about how their face or body look. A lot of people in different age groups get stuck into a time warp. They forget locked into the past of who they used to be in high school like the football jock or the cheerleader they once were.

If you’re putting yourself out there to meet that someone special. You have to make yourself that someone special too. People get too comfortable with their old look. They forget to freshen it up. This goes for men as well as women. You might be pleasantly surprised that you can actually look a lot younger by getting a complete make over. This is something that isn’t told to very many women. You need to change you makeup as you get older. Using the same makeup you did in high school can actually make you look older. This is not so flattering if you are feeling young at heart on the inside but not expressing it on the outside.

Go to a high-end salon where the stylists are constantly going to fashion shows to stay on top of their game. This will be one way that you can make a start to freshen up your appearance. I’m not saying that you might not go into a little shock at seeing what you could possibly look like with a new look. The stylists will get a feel for who you are. They will make suggestions. The reason why a salon is the best choice is because you have a professional make up artist to show you how to correctly apply makeup. This is key if you’re a woman. For men this will show you how to take care of your face.

This is helpful if your state has lots weather changes that can change how your skin reacts. Hair color has more options than it used to. There are now organic hair colors on the market that your salon will carry. Organic is a good choice if you have a sensitive scalp. The salon ones are better than the one’s sold in the stores and safer to use. Stylists are the experts in color and what shades will look best on you.

 This is something everyone forgets when you change your hair color. Make sure your makeup will go well with it other wise it will really stand out. Not what you are trying to accomplish. Updated styles can make getting ready for the day much easier. They take less time to get ready in the morning and will freshen up the new you. If you are having a problem mastering the new hair style. You can let your new stylist know and they are always happy to show you how to style it.

Image consultants aren’t just for the rich. They are at high-end department stores or private consultants. They can show you how to stretch your wardrobe or go through your existing clothes and tell you what to keep and what needs to go. They are one of the best investments that you can have. Shop arround for professional photographers. Once you’ve found the one that you like make sure to have your hair professionally done before the photo shoot; for women have your makeup done by a professional.

There is only so much a photographer can airbrush. These will at least make a start on getting you dating ready so that you start to feel comfortable with the new you. These pictures will come in handy for dating sites or profiles online. They give an honest representation of who you are. Not who you were.
