My 2019 mantra is to Be Your Best Beautiful, but what does it mean?
To me, it is not just about your hair and makeup, or what you are wearing. It is a holistic concept, feeling good inside and out. So I started thinking, what do I do to feel my best? What could I be doing to feel even better than my best? So here are my top 40 ideas. Full disclosure, I am not doing all of these at any given time, but there are definitely things on this list that I want to start incorporating into my day to day life to help lift my spirit and make me feel beautiful!
You absolutely must comment below with which of these you want to try. Or tell me what you think could be added! Make the commitment, set the goal, and let's go for it!
