I am having strong self essteem issues lately. I don't feel very pretty at all. Any suggestions on low cost ways I can give myself a pick me up?

  • Ever since gaining 35lbs. pregnancy weight and not able to fit ALL or ANY of my cute little clothes and going up severallll sizes I could pretty much be in the same boat with you. Low self-esteem! But what I do to give me a pick me up is go with my mom [call up your best friend] and go get pedicures and manicures and sit side by side in the salon. And always take someone along who is a good party-time person who you know without a shadow of a doubt they will make you smile and remind you how special you are to them. Then after go to Starbucks or somewhere and grab a sweet treat! I'm more then sure you deserve that too.

  • Haircuts, highlights (sun in). A new tshirt from walmart or target. (I bought a bunch of 4 dollar shirts at walmart since I am forever ruining mine.) Give yourself a manicure or pedicure. (I do pedicures since my manicures don't last.) Walk everyday if possible to give yourself a boost. Fight the depression with a proper diet as well. Good luck. :)

  • Spend more time outside, take in nature, go for walks, swimming, kayaking.

  • i have problems with the way i look... i always like buying a sexy outfit from sex shop or lingerie shop and put on my 6 inch heels. it makes my man go crazy. i got a nurse outfit cop outfit, school girl secretary outfit and some sexy bras and panties. seeing my man all rush me to the bedroom makes me feel wanted and sexy.

  • Sunless tanning spray does go a long way and gives you an instant change. Bright colored nail polishes on toes and fingers helps. I have Sunshine by Avon on right now. Its a bright yellow and its very cheerful. Change your makeup entirely. Maybe you're just bored with your style and need to change it up. Don't be afraid to try new things, a bronzer, new lipgloss etc go a long way. You could probably get everything you need for less than $20 on my site use code fsany for free shipping to save money too! Good luck! Every woman gets there at some point just remember everyone else sees how beautiful you are!
