SELF ESTEEM. No body comes out of a divorce feeling like a success, whether it was your idea or not. How good
you feel really comes down to how good you think you look.
If you are
still sporting the same hair style and make up that you did in your wedding photos then it is time for an
update. No, you don't have to do anything radical or extremely expensive. If you are a "classic" type of gal
just get the "today" version of your style. Still you, but better. If you are stuck in the 80's or 90's then it
is time to scout through some magazines for some new makeup tips, clip some photos of celeb hair that you admire
and head off to the hair salon. Even budget hair shops will cut your hair for you to a photo and give you some
free advice. Don't be conned into a high maintenance style if you are a wash and wear girl. A change of hair
color can be as good as a face lift for taking years off your age. Get the hair stylist to do it the first time
and then after that you can use seriously good 'at home' products yourself if you are on a budget.
Go ahead and
lose a few pounds if you need to. Excess weight can age you and also make you more self conscious about dating
men and getting personal. If you can afford to do so, join a gym or health club as then you can extend your
social circle as well as tone up. For the money conscious there are many inexpensive or free options which I am
going to list right now. Take a brisk 30 minute walk five times a week to tone up thighs, legs and butt. Join

you just have to nuke. No excuses.
examine your wardrobe. Do your clothes reflect who you want to be now or are they from a bygone era? If you are
no longer a soccer or PTA mom you don't need the soccer/PTA mom gear do you? Ill fitting clothes will make you
feel uncomfortable and unsexy so ditch those first. Anything you haven't worn for more than 2 years should also
go unless you are consigning it to the classic corner. Keep the good basic staples to build your new image from.
While waiting in the supermarket aisle glance through the fashion magazines for an idea of the "latest
must-haves". All chain stores stock the latest trendy accessories in less expensive ranges. Choose a style of
bag or shoe that is in now but also ties in with your older gear and hey presto- new look.
You can also
pick up a new shirt, pullover, coat, scarf, dress or trousers to update the old basics that you chose to keep.
Keep within your budget. Two less expensive items will give you more new looks than one costly piece which
everyone else will remember you wore last time. Old daggy clothes will now be used for home exercise, gardening,
house cleaning and the like. No public viewing unless exercising!
more aging than a pair of weather beaten hands. Start looking after your hands and nails. Neatly filed finger
nails with a clear coat of gloss look really healthy and well maintained. For your toe nails chose a bright
cheerful color that ties in with your new wardrobe. Polished toe nails really finish off a look. You can easily
do this at home and save the nail salon money for something else. The beauty of clear gloss is that no-one will
notice if it is a little bit chipped. Apply hand cream each and every night before turning out the light and
don't forget to put it on your feet as well. Someone will be looking at your feet soon.
