Shop Til You Drop, Pamper Til You’re Pooped

Becca Anderson, author of You Are An Awesome Woman, has written a new blog post on living your life exactly how you want to.

Shop Til You Drop, Pamper Til You’re Pooped

“I would rather shop than eat!” WALLIS SIMPSON

“I feel sexy when I get out of the tub—your skin is fresh and you’ve put up your hair without looking.”


“She had the loaded handbag of someone who camps out and seldom goes home, or who imagines life must be full of emergencies.”


“I love color and I love to dress like a woman.” LISA GUERRERO

“I don’t go out without makeup. I’m a woman, you know.”


“There are no ugly women, only lazy ones.” HELENA RUBINSTEIN

“I will buy any crème, cosmetic, or elixir from a woman with a European accent.”


“Going hungry never bothered me—it was having no clothes!”


“Every best-dressed woman keeps some of her gowns for years. She’s learned that fashion-wisdom is compounded of knowledge, taste, confidence, and poise.”


“You’d be surprised how much it costs to look this cheap.”

I always say shopping is cheaper than a psychiatrist. TAMMY FAYE MESSNER

“The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize.”


“Paint your nails in two tones—next time you get a French manicure, ask for lime green and pink, or red and gold, or black with orange tips! Get creative!”


“For your next office holiday party or power lunch, go vintage! Many higher-end vintage clothing stores sell dresses, suits, and blouses in like-new condition at a fraction of the cost of new designer clothing. These items are usually high quality and add flair to your wardrobe. Vintage clothing creates a classic and unique look.”


“Use your favorite lotion in your hair! It tames the frizzies and scents your hair beautifully!”


“A purse with panache is a great way to update your wardrobe. Invest in four (practical) purses you absolutely love and alternate them on a regular basis. For a quick change of purses, keep your wallet, cell phone, keys, and favorite lipstick in a small makeup bag that can be transferred at the drop of a hat!”


“Jewelry is a quick and great way to add some pizzazz to your outfit; try sporting your favorite earrings and a dazzling necklace. Once a year, treat yourself and get all your jewelry professionally cleaned—your gems will sparkle like new!”


“I take Him shopping with me. I say, “Okay, Jesus, help me find a bargain.’”


“Forget diamonds, a girl’s best friend is the perfect-fitting dress!”


“Buy a collection of essential oils and make your own fragrances and blends. Start with the basics, like lavender, orange, and mint, and expand as you experiment. You can customize your sheets and laundry soap with your new scent. You can even scent your household cleaner by adding a few drops of lavender oil! Create your own signature scent!”
