Day 10: Be gorgeous!

Today’s affirmation –

“I am a beautiful, divine, gorgeous creature.”

Today’s prayer –

“Divine Creator, please change me into someone who sees how very beautiful I am.”

This sounds like a fun day. I am getting better at letting my inner goddess out for a good airing. The day started well with a little home beauty treatment before my shower. A thorough cleanse and facial scrub (no micro-beads!) followed by a 20 minute moisture mask, thick and pale cream (think Mrs Doubtfire). I’d totally forgotten that my building team might arrive early to finish off the very last bits of building work. I’m not sure who got the biggest surprise or had the best laugh. What a great way to start the day. Smiles and giggles all round and a beautifully moisturised face. Win, win!

So, with the focus on being gorgeous, I selected clothes I feel fab wearing, shoes to match, and then time for makeup. Reading through the list of ideas for today gave me courage to try something new. I have a lovely Bobbi Brown palette and tend to use the same two colours over and over again. Dull! Boring! A little on-line research and I have a new look for the eye makeup, winged eyeliner! Move over Adele! Sporting my new look and my favourite clothes, I set out to “turn heads”. I’m not sure heads moved because I wasn’t really looking. I was too busy being gorgeous 😁

The next stage of the goddess make-over came when I visited the hairdresser. While she cut my hair, we discussed colour, Autumn colours, with vibrant deep red lowlights. I’ve not coloured my hair since the days of the old swimming cap highlights. Gosh, that used to hurt. This should be a real painless treat. Apart from my daughter and you, dear readers, nobody else knows I’m doing this. Hopefully, when I walk back into the house, hubby should notice the new hair do (or not).

With reference to yesterday, moving joyously and sensuously, our evening dance class ticked those boxes. Hubby and I have finally managed to link all the parts of our waltz together, and to music, a major achievement. I am pleased to report that no toes were squashed or other couples crashed into during the lesson. That’s a great lesson in my book.
