Appearance and Beauty

I’ve been know to be a girl that’s a little rough around the edges. Not caring too much to wear a full face of make up, if my eye brows are too dark, and often leaving out the house without putting on much lotion if any at all.

I used to follow this blog written by then Monique Brown call the MotorCityMoxie. Its now transformed into Feminine Allure with Monique Head. She’s now married and focuses on helping other women transform their lives, getting a committed man and helping women get what she wants.

Previously, on her blog she would talk about nail enamel – nail polish, wellness and beauty. She would often feature Sunday’s best with great Outfits. I had no idea that her blog was really leaving an impression on me.

This up coming week is Easter and I’ve convinced my mom to make an outfit for me. As a woman getting ready to be married I’m realizing beauty and appearance should matter even if just for myself. Rather than come to work without giving much thought to my hair, I’ve committed to sticking to a wig style that was custom made by my cousin.

While I’m working on getting a few blemishes removed, I put on a little make up yesterday. I shared that I was working on my self image with another relative of mine and she was excited for me. Aside from that I’m just working on bettering myself. As Monique used to say, “be good, look good, do better”.

Before I sign off, what do you think? Does Appearance matter much? Should we care so much about what we look like? Share your thoughts below.

Lastly, that image above wasn’t me at work today — I’m not even sure when I took that photo. It had to be before I left for Haiti Last year.
