the power of red lips

See this photo above?  This photo is proof that even on days when I feel my worst, a little bit of red on my lips can suddenly make me feel like the prettiest girl in the world.  It's been a recent discovery, this bold red lipstick, but it's one I will never regret.  Sure, to some I may look silly, but to me all I radiate is confidence.

With the New Year coming up, I'm start to reevaluate some things in life like we all do.  In 2012, I will be a college junior.  I will be turning 20 years old, and it's about time I began preparing myself for that chapter in life.  I'm ready to truly see myself as the totally self-assured, successful young lady I was destined to be.

I know it sounds lame, but when I wear red lipstick I feel like I'm finally growing a degree, at least.

P.S. Was anyone else thinking about this song the whole time they were reading this post?  Oh.... it was just me?  Well, you're welcome for reminding you of this wonderful 2001 classic.

Happy Christmas Eve's Eve, everybody.


  1. I'm lovin' the red lipstick - I feel the same way when I wear such a bold colour :)

  2. You are absolutely stunning and can pull off red lipstick so well!

    I've been recently obsessed myself :] Just makes me feel so grown-up. You think you need to get your crap together? 2012 means I'm turning 22, graduating and will be thrusted into the real world!

    Ps. I would just like to say I'm glad we're officially Facebook friends :)
