The stock market is still crazy, and who knows when we will hit a upswing. I have some friends who have been caught in the crossfire of the tough times we have all grown to know (and not love) and I got to thinking about appreciating the small things that we sometimes overlook.
I know, I know. It’s still tough out there. My “real job” is in marketing, remember?
Well, I truly believe in the power of simplicity, and doing a little something simple for yourself every now and then really does help and not hurt.
A little new gloss or stick does a glossbabe good. And you can do it for less than a lunch out.
I used to love to shop, but now that belts are a-tightening, I’ve found that my local Walgreens or CVS can be a fun window shopping excursion – even if it’s just on your lunch break.
I guess my point is that I’ve been having a blast just looking at all the products that are out there. All the colors, shapes, sizes and types. And I’ve found that sometimes something as simple as a new lip product can brighten your day. Especially when you find a new one that you love.
Just a glossy thought for the day. And no, this message is not “brought to you” by anyone other than yours truly.
