Here are a few of the easiest things that have made my life infinitely more enjoyable.
1. How to instantly look put together and feel confident: lipstick.
If you have time for nothing else, lipstick automatically makes you look fancy and tricks people into thinking you made an effort to look presentable. Joke’s on them!
P.S. I wear these.
2. How to wear uncomfortable shoes: no show socks.
I don’t know how it’s taken me this long to discover the lifesaver that is a no show sock. Previously, I’d quite literally wrap my toes in band-aids in order to wear my cutest (and most horrifically painful) shoes. Just having that thin layer of fabric protects my feet from those unsightly blisters. It’s magic, I tell ya.
P.S. They come in all sorts of styles to wear with any type of shoes (including some extra cushion).
3. How to avoid road rage: play classical music.
It’s no surprise that LA has a lot of traffic and that a majority of our time is spent driving across this sprawling city. Playing some soothing strings helps put me more at ease (and less likely to start screaming). Because here’s a little secret – the other cars can’t hear you.
P.S. For 24 hour classical music needs in LA, tune in to FM 91.5.
