LAST MINUTE HOLIDAY OUTFIT IDEAS
In today’s post, I want to talk about another tip I find helpful during the holidays if you don’t already know what to wear. Yesterday we were talking about wearing red to match with the holiday season. Today I want to bring this classy tip up to share with you, on how to liven up your Holiday look.
This is an easy peasy tip that you can do right away. Picking a neutral colored long coat and putting on will be a very quick fix to add that classy feel into your holiday look.
You could add green, gold, or red to bring the holiday spirit on.
I’m wearing my old long wool coat I got years ago from Forever21. I’m linking a few similar ones, here, here and here. My green mock neck ribbed dress is also years old from Forever21, so I’m linking a few similar ones here, here and here. My red sock boots are from Zara (similar ones here and here), my red baret and handbag are from Amazon.
We took this photoshoot last weekend and I was 32 weeks pregnant exact. My husband and I LOVE spending our working hours during the weekends together especially after finishing our photoshoot. Just to drive home in a car together just the two of us, it feels so amazing every time.
Thanks to our moms who watched our baby while we were working on creating content for you.
DAY TWO OF #GOODVIBESGIFTING
Get to know me: If you were one of my childhood friends, you would have known that I don’t look like how I look today. Not because I was older but because I used to have an underbite jaw, and I didn’t feel I was beautiful enough.
I went to my dentist and she told me to wait until I turned 20 to be able to do a jaw surgery, at that time I was 13 years old. My dentist and her surgeon team wanted to make sure my jaw wouldn’t come out again and they didn’t want me to go through surgery twice. I found myself crying often at night as I didn’t want to wait for that long to look and feel pretty.
Time passed and that day finally arrived. I got my jaw fixed but now my nose was super flat and big. Still, I didn’t love how I looked but thank God my jaw is normal like other people finally. That time I was in collage and I worked part time as an M.C. and exhibition model where I needed to submit photos for auditions. I remembered my cousin who worked with this advertising company telling me that one of the casting agents commented that I didn’t look like in the picture. I didn’t know what part of my body he commented but I was so upset and heartbroken to hear. At least I got the job though!
That moment got me to think about my other weakness which was my nose. With that comment I went to the plastic surgeon and booked my nose surgery the next day. I didn’t even think about the recovery time as I got booked for a jobs that would begin in 5 days. I went on a meeting 3 days before the event and had to wear sunglasses to cover my puffy face.
I know this doesn’t make sense to others but I think I had so many self-confidence issues. I never showed it to other people that I wasn’t confident in my own skin even though that was how I felt. Funny enough, I had so many boys chasing me around since I was in Middle School. Lol!
I think it was because of my good heart, sweet, fun and sassy personality and how positively I look at life. Which makes people around me feel comfortable and feel loved. Whoever comments on how I look now, I really don’t take it for granted because I love who I am.
Now I look at myself and always say to myself, Wow! I’m so Beautiful both inside and out!
My thoughts for you today is to not be afraid to change yourself for the better. Either taking care of your skin, exercise often, or other things that will make you happy about yourself now.
In the end, everyone will look the same. Our skin will be saggy and wrinkled! We will get old but that doesn’t mean you have to wait for that day to arrive and stay unhappy about yourself. Do something that will make you happy and don’t bother about what others’ think anymore.
You don’t need to be like others, know your value, know what you like, know who you are and love yourself. That’s the most important thing. No one will love you unless you start loving yourself first.
Question for you today: Share with us, what is one thing you used to not like about yourself, how did you work through your negative thoughts and embrace yourself?
I’m looking forward to reading your stories. Don’t forget to stop by my Instagram and answer a fun question there too! Also don’t forget to use #GoodVibesGifting at the end of the your comment so I know you are participating in this contest.
