How Do They Do It?

This is a question for the ladies.

How do you do it? How do you always manage to look so put together? I just don’t understand. Yes you, with the perfect red lips and high heels. The straight, silky hair or the gorgeous waves. The un-chipped fingernail polish and clean looking clothes. The flawless eyeliner!


I have tried. Red lips? Gone within 5 minutes, maybe 10 on a good day. Then I am just left with that weird red outline. High heels? Screaming feet and ankles…also probably within 5 minutes. Hair? Let’s not talk about that. 10 minutes after I paint my nails a chunk of the paint is missing. Where did it go? I sure have no idea so if you find it let me know.

And clothes. The freaking clothes. I could have just pulled it out of the dryer and within an hour it will be crazy wrinkled or I will have something on it. Dust, food, marker, make-up, hell that’s probably where my fingernail polish went. When I wear eyeliner, I usually end up forgetting I’m wearing it and it ends up somewhere by my ear.

I feel completely inept at being a girl. That is going to change. Yessir! I want to be that girl that wears heels fearlessly and can wear red lipstick if she so chooses (my husband hates it so that won’t be very often).

I have ZERO idea what my style is. I pretty much just wear whatever is comfortable. I enjoy being comfortable. Is it possible to be fashionable and comfortable all at the same time? Please please please please tell me it is! Even if it isn’t true, you can lie to me. Just give me a little hope.

A glimmer of hope, that is all I need! 2017 will be the year of Alison figuring out what her true style is. If anyone has any advice, please help me out.

    I went to school with that girl & try as I might I just couldn’t hate her, she was really nice. But I wanted to be just like her. Still have not succeeded with the whole being perfect thing but I think I’m nice. Depending on the day.

    Heh sorry, I won’t be of much use. I have days where I’m like “yass queen slay” where I wear a cute outfit, maybe some lipstick and heels, but mostly I have days where I wear my biggest hoodie, no bra and haven’t washed my hair 4 days…😂😂those are my “i dont give a flying f*ck days”
