I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely ready for Spring! However we have a few months, and I have to deal with the fact that, this harsh winter weather is impacting my skin. Growing up in California, I always had extremely oily skin. But, here in DC, the seasonal climate changes makes my skin extremely dry and dual during the winter.
If you have goals that you want to obtain in 2017, you need to truly look at your appearance and ask yourself this honest question – Do I look the part? If not, commit to making the change now! Invest the time and energy in getting your style and image together to ensure you have a confident and polished look.
If there’s ever a time for sparkles it’s New Years Eve. This is one holiday where it’s hard to over do it, so if you love head-to-toe sparkle now is the time. If just a little bit of sparkle is what you’re looking for, it’s all in the accessories. Polished has put together a little bit of inspiration for your to find the perfect look for where ever your night takes you.
Sometimes are schedules are so jam-packed, especially during the holidays, that we leave our home early in the morning and don’t return till after 10 pm. Different occasions call for different outfits, and sometimes your t-shirt and jeans just won’t do for a night on the town. Luckily, you don’t have to change your outfit completely to look the part. Accessories and make-up are the key to taking your outfit to the next level. Throw a different pair of shoes and a necklace in the back of your car, and you’re ready to transform your outfit.
Tis’ the season for Holiday cheer! All the windows in our favorite shops have changed to dazzling Christmas displays. The peppermint mochas and spiced ciders are flowing, and the gift giving is soon to commence. This year, focus on what matters: spending time with loved ones, and less time wandering around the mall wondering what to get Aunt Cathy and your best friend Susan.
It only took three months, but the cold weather is finally here! Finally we can drink our hot Starbucks on our way to work and not overheat. This change of weather calls for a wardrobe check-in. The truth is, I know 50% of my Polished ladies do not enjoy going to the mall. They either don’t have the time or simply don’t find it enjoyable. But trust me, a good curated shopping list, can ensure you are in and out in no time.
One of my secrets to keeping on top of my to-do list and my stress to a minimum is have my outfit selection process down to a science. The time and energy it can take in the morning to choose the right outfit for the day can be frustrating and overwhelming. We all know that uncomfortable feeling when we step out of the house wearing an outfit we’re not happy with.
I don’t know about you, but I love a great sweater. When I lived in San Francisco, sweaters weren’t really my go-to. I could never go a full day with one on, and turtlenecks were out of the question. What started as a cozy foggy morning would end with a warm, sunny afternoon. I would have to shed my layers by one o’clock, and my outfit was ruined.
I am a firm believer that no two women were put on this earth to walk the streets alike, and confidence truly comes to one if they be the best version of themselves and not duplicate. I feel for the women that put on a facade and do not whole heartedly believe in the image they are projecting. At a glance you can see straight through them, they themselves are not yet convinced of this public persona.
Wouldn’t it be great to be so inspiring that when you speak, people listen because they are compelled by your message? To be so empowering that people naturally gravitate to you because they know that you create results?
I get how hard it can be to keep up with the daily grind without sacrificing your personal integrity, peace of mind and authentic expression. In today’s fast-paced world, leading a successful and fulfilling life with grace and ease, requires creating a clear vision, and aligning daily actions steps with your consciousness.
