Your Weekend Forecast: Superfantastic!

By Glinda

As I watch my year old daughter smile and flirt outrageously with herself in the mirror, I can’t help but laugh. She is so cute, I can’t help myself.

But then I wonder, what happens to women to make them stop doing that?

Even the most gorgeous woman I know cannot seem to help finding flaws with what she sees in the mirror. 

Is it advertising? Is it family? Is it society in general?  Or is it all those things wrapped up in a melange of negativity that almost forces us to focus on the very few things that are “wrong” with us instead of the many things that are right?

When I found out I was going to be writing a beauty blog, I didn’t want it to seem as if I was saying that a woman needs to use cosmetics to “fix” herself.  I don’t feel that way at all.  I will spare you the cliched “every woman is beautiful” speech, but just know that I use beauty products to have fun and enhance what the good Lord gave me, not as a means of camoflague.

So this weekend, I have a task for you.

Look at yourself in the mirror and love what you see there.  Find one particular fabulous things about yourself (amongst the many, darlings) and play it up so that the masses can rejoice in your glory.

I’m not kidding. 

Do it.

    What if we all looked at wearing make-up, beautiful jewellery and really flattering clothing as adornment, instead of something borne out of an insecurity about who we are and how we look?

    There is a big difference between calling attention to all your features, and trying like hell to make sure no one can see where you’re just not perfect.
