in a FUNK!?! What Do you Do?

when you are in a FUNK what do you do to make yourself happier?

I have a few things I try to brighten up and dig outta the funky mood.

some are the obvious. and some are a little less.

Obvious things like....

-shopping. or just a leisurely perusal of my current Happy Place. (late night TJMaxx or Marshalls runs)

-a large cup of liquid sanity. (the carbonated and caffeinated variety)

-Carbs. candy, sugar. whatever I'm craving at the moment.

-cranking up my fave tunes and dancing the day away.

-a chat with a fave friend.

less obvious things that brighten a bad mood for me.

-wearing Fab make-up

- sporting something hot pink .

-Rocking something that sparkles. read: bling/sequins.

-Donning some fab Jewelry and/or a glam hair flower.

-Displaying some cleavage-y delight.

any combo or all of the above does it too. i usually go for Hot pink, sparkley and cleavagey with glam make-up and some fab accessories.

it beats feeling frumpy and funktastic.

Feeling frumpy, unkempt and fatty are definite triggers that put me in a funk.

I've been in a funk for a few weeks now.

why? well because....

-we've moved in but I have yet to find and wear my fave clothes since we got here. Then my fave clothes i do have, aren't cutting it in my current state. sigh.

-I'm more lumpy than for sure prego looking in most things. and fat prego vs cute baby bump, it's sure to put anyone in a funk.

-I'm zitty. (stinking hormones)

-my hair needs colored.

-I could use a good wax.

-I need to buy some good make-up (read: foundation) speedy fast and yet lack funds.

So today

-I'm sporting some mega cleavage. in a dress that makes me look more prego than fat.

-I have a hair/wax appointment and will get to chat with a friend while we deal with what ails me.

-while i'm gone i might hit a store and peruse. or i might just swing by the beauty store where i have some exchange credit to get some much needed foundation.

-and i'll be sure to get a beverage and a snack.

I hope to be funk free by nightfall.

and if not there is always tomorrow.

sequins and cleavage here i come again.

what is your magic combo to get funk free?

fave guilty pleasure food?

Beverage of choice?

Fave color?

Buy something fun.

Do something for someone else. Gets my mind off of me.

Watch a good movie.

Eat something yummy.

Take a happy pill.

Usually I am in a funk because there is no money to spend. So getting nails done or buying new stuff is not possible. I usually read a good book, work on a hobby, or talk with a friend.

Hope you find your clothes soon!

* alone time with a book and a snack. Preferably somewhere cozy.

* an outing with friends, time to process what's in our heads & commiserate about life as a girl and mother

* movies!!!! I love the escapism of a movie outing.

* oddly, I love to cook or bake late at night. Not dinnertime cooking during the Witching Hour, but pleasure cooking. With a movie playing next to me on my kitchen desk.

* I love to wander my favorite stores without kids.

I'm in a funk right now. Some big changes in my life are up in the air and out of my hands. I hate it when OTHERS have control of a decision I wish were mine. I'm in a big funk over it and probably will be until I find out their decision. I'll probably still be in a funk after as I try to reconfigure my life around whatever they decide.

Late night runs to TJMax are my absolute favorite! I like to take my husband with be because he always like to pick out a new piece of jewelry for me. Best part is it comes guilt free!

getting "dressed" in something cute and sexy then going shopping or on a date with the hubz gets me out of a funk.

i am all about the frozen twinkie for something guilty and fun at home, but love me a little cold stone when i really wanna get naughty.

A delicious diet pepsi, from a fountain, over ice balls, in a cup with a lid and a straw.

PINK PINK PINK...most shades of pink and if it sparkles, even better!
