GRATITUDE IS ALWAYS IN STYLE
Welcome to today’s Inspired Makeup Monday and the latest look series on BackPorchPoet.
Gratitude is Always in Style is just what it sounds like - a bunch of my favorite things interpreted into makeup looks. Thanksgiving is rolling around in North America and winter holidays after that. Sometimes it’s easy for me to get inside my own head so what better way to break out of the funk than to be thankful for the little things (and big things).
I don’t think I need to tell any caffeine addict what it feels like to have that first cup on a cold morning. Now, you might be saying, “Hey isn’t caffeine bad for anxiety and stuff?”
The answer is yes and you’re not my real dad so THERE!
All jokes aside, coffee has taken hold of my morning routine and is the most enjoyable part of my morning. If it’s an addiction, I’m ok with that. I’m thankful to have a ritual to center me and propel me into my day. Yes, the adrenaline rush to my nervous system is nice, but that morning mug has an even greater impact on my psychological well being. It’s taking the time to care for myself, to partake in something I enjoy, and to push me into my day.
No one notices the eye twitch anyway.
