The Project Begins

Be afraid, I loves a mind map!

Ever dramatic, something needs to change. Introducing Project 37.

I started writing at this address back in that days when children were a thing that would surely happen one day and all I wanted to do was write luxurious prose from far off climes, accompanied by the love of my life.  What?  Dogs can get passports! Absolutely joking obviously.  Shrug.  Back track then fast forward, like some sort of summer time dance routine.  We are here.  I am happier in some areas of my life than others - I have the children, the love and lots more to be smiling about.  But.  Isn't there always one? I am off.  I am weirdly and unsuitably not myself.  So here I am, in need of a jolt, a project to hinder the slide into nothing and spring me back to life.  

 

My aches and pains have multiplied, so have my grey hairs and my approaching middle age spread.  It doesn't have to be like this I read so I shall endeavour to make that my acclamation, a vote for change.  A to do list of mighty goals and tiny achievements. One more step into the world I go, one more step towards 40.  Because of this need for adventure, displicine and difference, I have decided to document Project 37.  A radical yet all encompassing vogage of my own discovery.  I am happy but with a few tweaks I can be much better.  So off we go.

Is feeling inspired... today I have loved, tickles with my boy, spending time on the garden (1/37), spending time with friends in the garden and spending some time on me!

Embracing Elegance

One thing that comes up a lot on this here map is the need, or rather want, to be healtheir and more confident.  I hereby announce my intention to try to be more confident and poised regarding my appearence.  Regular lurking on style and beauty forums reminded me of  the old addage "Fake it til you Make it" - this helps condience start to simmer away.  Also, if you want to be considered elegant, act it.  Cut your hair, appear neat and invest in clothes that don't make you look like a student of old or a reject from a sad sitcom in the early 90s.  All sage advice.  

 

So I decided this evening was time to begin a more consistent skin routine.  I cleansed, buffed, masked, cleansed and hydrated my now very lobster like skin.  It does feel smoother, a little clearer and yet I am slightly meh about the whole experience.  But, I do realise that this new hobby of mine is about creating new habits, tehrefore we'll continue the whole shebang on the morrow.  Disclaimer:  I also have upped the water consumption - 4 glasses today.  Here's to new habits, cheers!

 

What sort of things do you do appearence wise to make you feel more confident and put together? x
