This post was born due to a devastating incident in my bathroom. My favorite lipstick broke and I really felt like I was backed into a corner with no air to breathe, It was the only lipstick that made me look like I had life and was happy at the beginning of a bad day at the end of it or during one, it was a very important part of me. This led me to think about being more creative with my lips if I did that, art would be apart of me not just a color I just happened to be obsessed with.
I say do whatever you want with your lips. Poking out your lips like you are kissing might be annoying but its super cute, if you don’t want to be so “out there” start with trying two different tones of pinks and reds, If you are on a budget a basic pink lipstick is for $1.00 so you should be fine,you do not have to break your bank for a MAC or Chanel.Let me know how it turns out when you try it!
“Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable,” declared Oscar Wilde,” that we have to alter it every six months.” Now, that’s some food for thought if you are a woman contemplating the purchase of an exquisitely tailored $1200 Chanel outfit along with a dainty little $500 Fendi handbag.
The same applies if you are a man contemplating some new threads and think that only something high-end from Hugo Boss, Armani, or Savile Row will do.
Many people get themselves in financial trouble (requiring debt management help) because they don’t realize how much they spend on high-end clothing and how little they get in return.
Researchers have found that people on the average will underestimate by 50 percent the actual amount that they annually spend on their wardrobes. Moreover, spending choices on clothing aren’t as well thought out as we may think.
The Chicago Tribune recently reported retailers know that most purchasing decisions are made in five seconds and at least 70 percent of purchases are impulsive. Given that clothing is the most popular item purchased on impulse, most of us rarely spend any time in contemplating the benefits of paying $400 for a name-brand jacket or $950 for an exclusive high-end outfit. Whenever we do give it any thought, it’s a superficial treatment at best.

The same type of contrived reasoning which persuades us that we need an expensive house is used to justify the purchase of expensive clothing. For example, we may rationalize the purchase of an expensive suit or outfit by saying that it will make us feel more successful, and at the same time make us more productive at work.
I have now realized that I have many curious readers.I had done a Creativity in the home post a few weeks ago and I got amazing responses,many people wanted to know more about how they could recreate and decorate their home without having to max their credit cards.Many people take out loans to re-decorate their home,I think if they used their own creativity that wouldn’t have been necessary.One thing I always thought would be a great excuse for a splurge would be great painting .Its always a smart investment,not only does it show your classy side but if you happen to run into financial problems it can make a good sale.Ive seen great paintings go from $1000.00 to $200,000.00.Today I was on the phone today with a friend of mine who wanted to purchase a painting for his wife,I then took my curiosity to google to come up with wall art ideas to suggest.I stumbled upon five amazing wall art/paintings blew me away I had to share them with you
