 you could just start from doing your hair and makeup daily so you feel better. then slowly changing from yoga pants and sweatshirts to jeans and a cute top?

 I don't have any makeup advice (i'm still learning myself lol) but youtube has great tutorials, maybe ask DH if you can get your hair done and maybe find an easy tutorial for hairstyles as well..

Go to the local beauty school and have your hair done. The one near me is like 12 bucks for a cut, and they are good. I live in a not so well off area, but when I want nice clothes I drive to a bigger city where theres people with money, and I hit up goodwill, and the consignment shops. Great clothes and accesories at super low prices. Good luck doll!

I would say dye your hair and get a cute or edgy cut. Change up the wardrobe trying incorporating heels. Wedges are really in now and super comfortable.

Get a new haircut/ color or look online for hairstyles and curl your hair or a braid. Get some make up at Target they have make up
For $1.00-$3.00 the brand is ELF it's actually pretty good! Give yourself a manicure and pedicure. Go to Tjmaxx or Marshells and get yourself a new outfit. Look online or Pinterest and see what new styles are out and find a cute outfit on there and try to find similar pieces at those stores. Get some heels and you and you hunny should go out on a date!!!
