If you’ve done a lot of long, hard thinking, and have come to the conclusion that it may be time for a change, inside and out – Stray no further. Here’s everything you need to know in one place.
If you find yourself wearing the same old clothes in the same old dull colours, it sounds like it’s time for a throw out and a shopping spree or two. Yes, it’s easier said than done though, as some people don’t know where to look, and more importantly, how to dress for their bodies. If this is your problem, then don’t worry, help is out there. You can find inspiration so many different ways nowadays, social media being one of them. Follow the fashion brands online, and anyone that you look up to, whether that be a celeb or your best friend. You can get so many helpful tips that way, and even incorporate many different things into one to make your very own style. It’s important to remember that just because one person may look great in high waisted jeans, doesn’t mean you will. This is why going out with a couple of your close friends and trying on a whole bunch of different styles is essential. Remember that you may look at something on the hanger and think ‘ew’, but then be forced to try it on by your girlfriend, only to realise you look incredible. It’s all about trial and error gurrrl.
A smile can so say so many things. It can be a greeting, or a thank you, or just a friendly gesture you give to passers-by. But yet the power of it can completely change someone’s day for the better. And not only that, but it makes you feel good! So if you haven’t smiled much recently, make a mental note to try harder. One reason you may not be smiling is because you don’t like the way your smile actually looks, and this might be due to your teeth. A common problem for people is the colour; whether it be from smoking, coffee, or just ageing, your teeth may no longer be the white they used to be. If that is the case, there are many different options you have to whiten them, be it yourself at home, or going to a professional.
If your teeth are crooked and out of line, there are now new procedures on the market like All-On-Four which is a technology advanced treatment that gives you a full mouth reconstruction that very same day. So no more hiding that smile of yours, you can be beaming in no time.
Do you ever look in the mirror and stand there for a good twenty minutes rearranging your parting, only to have tried over a hundred different ways, and result to what you first started with originally? If so, then it’s time for a hair revamp. This could be a minor change, like adding a fringe, some layers, or highlights. Or you may decide enough is enough, and get it all chopped off into a pixie cut and dyed pink!!! But, don’t feel you have to do that… It was merely a suggestion… But, why not? The fun thing about hair is that it grows back, so if you’re bored and want to feel reborn again, then book yourself an appointment at the hair salon and go crazy. Yes, you could do it yourself, but be warned, those perfect results in the DIY hair tutorial videos on YouTube aren’t always guaranteed… So to be on the safe side and not risk your hair falling out or turning a freaky shade of green – you should pay that little bit extra and let the professionals do their job.
There are many different reasons why we go to work, but one of the main reasons that drags us out of bed every morning, is money. If we’re unable to make an income, then we’re unable to have nice things. Simple. But what about if you’re doing a job that you hate? Sure, money is one thing, but is it worth being sad and miserable for?
A lot of people hold back from applying for the jobs they really want. This may be because they don’t have the qualifications, or simply because fear is holding them back. But it’s important to remember that you’re never too old to go back to school. So don’t let that stop you. And if you’re scared; scared to set yourself up for failure – wipe that out of your mind right now. If you never try, you’ll never know. So take a breath, think about what you want to be doing as a career – something that makes you proud to go to work every day. And when you know, figure out how you can get there. And to anyone that already feels that way… Well done. You made it.
What does it mean to be happy? – To be rich? To live in a big fancy house with an indoor pool? To have over 100K followers on Instagram? Or maybe, just maybe, none of that matters. What if being happy doesn’t come from the objects and materialistic things you may or may not have? But instead, it’s the family that are always by your side? The music that you’re able to listen to on repeat? Or even the look your dog gives you when he lays his head on your knee?
If you think you’re yet to find your happiness – go out and find it! You may decide to learn how to play the piano because you love how Clair de Lune sounds. – Your happiness may come the day all that practising starts to sound right. Or maybe you’ve always wanted to travel the world, but things kept getting in the way, holding you back. – Well, it may be time to take the moment, and run. Run and keep running until you’ve ticked Australia, India, and Tokyo off your list. Never stop doing what makes you happy.
